Gift Ideas for Everyone

Spread the love

giftsThe hustle and bustle of the holidays are upon us. Along with snow, family get-togethers and plenty of food, gift giving is a big part of this time of year. If you are struggling with what to get that special someone, Village Green Apothecary has options that are natural and unique.

For the Tea Lover

With names like Get Happy and Get Relaxed, and flavors like Orange Ginger Mint, teas from Republic of Tea are a tasty and warm gift to give. Pair a tin of tea with a beautiful antique tea cup and tea strainer for a lovely gift for the tea lover.

For the Bath Lover

Dry skin brushing is a great way to stimulate circulation and good health and Baudelaire bath brushes are perfect for that purpose. They are made of cedar wood and 100% boar bristle. To dry brush, start at your feet and brush upward toward the heart. Then move on to your arms, beginning at the hands and working upward. Use firm, small strokes upwards, or work in a small, circular motion. For the stomach, work in a counterclockwise pattern.

After dry brushing, shower with one of many lovely bar soaps, such as those by Dr. Bronner’s, in lavender, almond, rose and peppermint scents. If you prefer more of a body wash, try Virginia First Tea Farm Castille Soaps in Green Tea Essence or RoseVirginia First Tea Farm products are American-made, all-natural, fully vegan and never tested on animals.

After cleansing, moisturize your skin with a body oil like this one from Dr. Hauschka (my favorite) or a body lotion like Alteya Rose Body Lotion.

For the Person Addicted to Lip Treatments

This may describe me. I can’t have enough lip balms, and they make the perfect stocking stuffer. Skincando, Badger, Bodyceuticals and Dr. Hauschka all make lovely nourishing lip balms that heal, moisturize and protect lips.

For the Aromatherapy lover

A diffuser from Spa Room, combined with a variety of essential oils from Aromaland, makes a wonderful gift for the person who has everything. The MiniScentifier™ is a mini personal diffuser that offers power and portability wherever you go. An attractive, dark wood grain finish adds a decorative touch to the HerbalAir™ ultrasonic diffuser.


Kits are a great way for someone to try a new product. Some of my favorite are:

Skincando Miracle Travel Kit: It contains travel sizes of their Miracle Cream, Eye Balm, and full size Brew Wild Lip Balm.

Trilogy Body Care Botanicals Kit: A treat for real lovers of truly natural top-to-toe skincare, Trilogy Body Care Botanical Beauties nourishes and pampers for beautiful skin all over. With a full-size, award-winning Pure Plant Body Oil and a deluxe mini Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream, this gift set is a luxurious indulgence for both skin and senses. Not only a fabulous gift for any season, Pure Plant Body Oil’s fragrance-free, gentle and natural properties make it perfectly suitable for moms and babies! It contains Pure Plant Body Oil and Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream.
