The entire practice of gift-giving can be a tricky one. Some of us try way too hard to find the perfect gift. Some of us don’t try hard enough. And others, well, simply avoid the practice altogether. It can be stressful sometimes, can’t it? Trying to find something that your recipient will appreciate and make use of… instead of just putting it away on the back recess of a shelf, taking it to the thrift store, or, Heaven forbid… regifting it.

When people shop for gifts, home fragrance isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind. However, I’m here to change your thinking on that… because home fragrance can be a great gift for anyone! I mean, consider this – the purpose of home fragrance is (or, should be) to help create an inviting place out of any space… and I don’t know of anyone that wouldn’t be able to find joy in that!

I’ll bet I already know what you’re thinking. “But my giftee is a guy.” “But I have no idea what scent my giftee would like.” “But I don’t know if my giftee would even use it!” Here’s the thing: All of those reasons are why home fragrance – and specifically Waxing Wistful Home Fragrance (because yes, I have personally given these issues a lot of thought) – is a great idea.

Believe it or not, gentlemen enjoy nice smells, too. When shopping for that special guy in your life, I would suggest looking into our Mountain Homestead Collection of fragrances. All of the scents in that collection are quite masculine, and are always a huge hit with our male customers! Or maybe he’s foodie, and our Southern Kitchen fragrances would be right up his alley.

For that special someone that you’re clueless about, stop and think about the spaces they gravitate toward. Does he or she love spending time in the kitchen? Does he or she escape to the beach at every opportunity? Is he or she most at home in the mountains, or in the backyard garden? Thinking in this way can not only guide you in choosing that perfect fragrance, but also add a very personal touch to the gift you’re giving. In other words, it’s a really thoughtful way to show you care!

And, as far as being a useful gift, I’m happy to report that Waxing Wistful has that issue covered as well. Our Room Perfumes are basically magical bottles of freshening power that can be used at home, in the car, in the hotel room… anywhere, anytime. A beautiful aroma is always just a spray away. And with two convenient sizes, it’s super-easy to keep a bottle in that special designated space, and/or take a bottle on the go. So simple, and so convenient!

Therefore, I encourage you – next time you start getting brain cramps trying to figure out the perfect present to buy, consider a thoughtful fragrance. You may just transform someone’s space into a happier, more peaceful place!
