Honestly, I don’t feel I’ve got many Christmas posts left in me but there are a couple of things (maybe two or three more) that I cannot leave out – these Aromatherapy Associates Baubles, £10 (HERE) being one. These are excellent items to have in the emergency Christmas stash. How many times does it happen that you find yourself being given a gift when you really didn’t expect it and have nothing to give back that doesn’t then turn into an awkward ‘forgot will drop yours off later’ kind of conversation. I’m not saying carry a bauble at all times in your bag.. oh, wait.. I am saying that.
The joy of these is that you can just say it’s a little something for the tree – which means no wrapping required. So, the contents – I’ve spoken SO many times about this range so I won’t bang on about the wonders – 9ml of De-Stress Oil. I’d say you only need about a third of the bottle so you could easily get three blissful baths out of this. These are the most potent oils I know, so de-stressing is exactly what will happen and your gift recipient will thank you for a long time!

Much as I agree with the recommendation of these bath oils, I hate the idea that you should have swap presents. To me, gifts are truly about the thought & if I didn’t think to buy you a proper one in advance, then a thoughtless gift is just an embarrassing indictment of the relationship. I remember every one getting in a massive huff with me at school one year because when asked what I’d like for Christmas by some classmates, I asked them to buy a decent gift for people they really cared about rather than trying to amass a tonne of shit presents in return from the maximum amount of people. Can you tell I have a real issue with presents?!!
It’s funny how over the years presents are less and less important…. the point really is not to offend anyone accidentally – I’ll happily keep an emergency gift in the drawer for that not to happen. You can’t police other people’s attitude to gifts or the significance they attach to them, so I’d rather be safe than sorry.
That’s a good point. I think I spent so much of my life being disingenuous about so much of importance, I’ve become overbearingly militant about trying to be ‘authentic’ & feel very sensitive about having to compromise my feelings in order to protect other people’s- again. Perhaps it makes me swing too far the other way sometimes.
