Fruits & Passion is truly one of my favourite gift-giving destinations every single year, for a number of reasons. First of all, they’re Canadian – meaning you get to support a homegrown company with your purchases. Secondly, they use tons of local and organic ingredients in their products, so you know not only will your body look and smell great, it’s being nourished with all-natural goodness. Finally, they actually have a really awesome housewares line that combines their bath-friendly scents with products for making your home smell amazing. Today I’ve chosen my five favourite gift ideas for a number of occasions (and price points), so read on to see if you can cross a name or two off your Christmas list.

The Perfect Stocking StufferFoaming Bath & Bath Salts – $5 each
This year’s Fruits & Passion primary holiday scents are exotic blends of fruity fragrances – including Cranberry Love, Orange Cantaloup and Pear Peony. Sample all three of them in pint-sized form with one of these stocking-friendly goodies. Go for ultra-foamy bubble bath in cute ornament and Christmas bulb containers, or soak up a delicious scent when you sprinkle some bath salts in your tub.

 

The Perfect Culinary Collection: Cucina – $8 – $55
If you’re unfamiliar, Cucina is Fruits & Passion’s line of kitchen-friendly goodies that channel the aromas of fine culinary concoctions – like Lime Zest and Cypress or my personal favourite, the holiday-appropriate Clementine & Candied Ginger. This year you can sample a huge range of Cucina products, including actual kitchen basics for $10 or less like a colourful apron, insulated oven mitts, and wooden spoons – all of which complement the full line of soap and hand lotion gift sets and individual products for a truly inspired self-created gift set.

 

The Perfect Choice for Him: Must-Haves For Him in 003 – $48.50
Just because it’s a body care store, doesn’t mean your hubby (or dad or brother) needs to be left out in the cold – as proven by Fruits & Passion’s popular men’s line. Want to introduce your favourite guy to the collection? This package has a full line of gentlemanly swag to keep him smelling fresh all day long. Start with an invigorating shower, go in for a close shave, roll on some natural deodorant, and finish things off with a few spritzes of this fresh, woodsy-marine fragrance. A perfect choice under $50!

 

The Perfect Hostess Gift: Electric Fragrance Diffusers – $18.50
Keep your home smelling wintery fresh well past Christmas with these electric fragrance diffusers. Simply plug them into your wall and use the adjustable dial to set the intensity of the fragrance for up to eight weeks of fresh-smelling, subtly wafting scents. With three holiday editions (Winter Berries, Orange Cinnamon, and Boreal Fir) this is a perfect choice for your hostess to keep her home smelling pretty and party-ready for the next event on the endless holiday social calendar.

 

The Perfect Picks For Her (At Any Price!): Holiday Gift Sets – $20 – $48.50
No matter how much you’ve got to spend on your number one lady, Fruits & Passion has a pretty pre-wrapped gift solution for you. Share a sweet body care duo with a pouf, gel, and skin-quenching lotion for just $20 with your favourite gal pal, and scale it up from there with additional products until you reach body care mecca: the Fruity Deluxe Gift Sets with perfume, foaming bath, shower gel, and body lotion. No matter which set you get, know you’re scoring a bargain: the actual value of the included products is typically 25-40% more than the list price. All four gift set sizes are available in three fruity scents including Grapefruit Guava, Orange Cantaloup, and Cranberry Love, so you can mix and match to different members of your family and circle of friends without ever duplicating presents. Genius!
