Holiday Gift Guide 2011: For The Home

Announcing our first annual Holiday Gift Guide series! Every Thursday until December 22nd, we will feature a NEW gift guide. This week’s gift guide is For The Home! Enjoy!

SOI Candles

SOI Candles from The SOi Company is making this possible for everyone this holiday with their collection of hand-crafted candles. A one of a kind candle, SOI candles are the eco-friendly way to create a healthy environment through beautiful fragrance.

Whether it’s the fresh smell of pear infused with a splash of pomegranate during the springtime or a creamy festive scent with ground cinnamon and nutmeg around the holidays, there is an appropriate fragrance for every occasion and season. Shoppers can’t go wrong with giving the gift of a fragrant home this holiday. Available in a variety of sizes and more than 30 scents, there is a SOI candle for every style and preference.

The SOI Company’s unique candle collection includes:
Classic Jar Candle 16 oz. (MSRP $25.90) – The most popular candle allows users to enjoy a decadent scent for 140 hours.

Boxed LUXE Candle 13.5 oz. (MSRP $24.95) – More than a decorative accent this luxurious candle is triple-fragranced, which makes for a long-lasting but not over-powering fragrance that will last 90 hours.

Travel Tins- Available in 8 oz. (MSRP $13.95) and 2 oz. (MSRP $7.90) these candles are a perfect gift for frequent travelers or anyone that enjoys their casual style. The burn time for the 8 oz. is 70 hours and the 2 oz. lasting 18-20 hours

Votives 3 oz. (MSRP $5.95)- Perfect for a smaller space, these lovely candles burn for 30 hours.

Because SOI candles are made of 100% all-natural soy oil, you will enjoy clean, soot-free burning that is not harmful to you or the environment. A great gift for anyone, SOI candles’ soy oil only heats to 106 degrees making them last 40% longer that paraffin wax candles and what’s even better, melted soy oil from SOI candles can be used as skin moisturizer and help remedy sunburns, eczema, psoriasis and poison oak.

With so many options of styles and scents, The SOi Company is a one stop shop for gift buyers this holiday. With The SOI Company’s revolutionary candles, everyone can enhance their home with an eco-friendly beautiful fragrance.

Joovy Foocot

As Jasmine recently shared with us, The Joovy Foocot is a kid’s dream cot! Your child will love knowing where they will nap or sleep while they are away from their own bed. Parents love the flexibility and portability of the Foocot.

Setting up the cot in new locations will give your child a secure and early sense of where they will sleep, making bedtime or naptime much easier. Parents love the ease of use and compactness of the Foocot. It is perfect for travel, day care, sleepovers, cruises, hotels, camping and playing.

Boon Products

First up is the Boon Stash.

A fashionable way to stash your stuff. You know that with kids comes clutter. Tackle that mess and give all those objects a new home with Stash. It looks good in any room of the house, either hanging on the wall or sitting on a counter top, organizing everything in easy-to-find compartments.

Next, Boon Glo.

This is absolutely, positively my daughter’s favorite nightlight. The coolest nightlight I’ve ever seen, to be honest. This multi-colored, interactive nightlight has removable, illuminated Glo balls that turn a night time game of catch into something extraordinary. And there’s nothing electronic in them, so they don’t get warm and they won’t break. You can even tuck them into bed with your child. The glow fades to dark after 30 minutes, helping them fall asleep. Bonus: 95% effective at keeping monsters away all night long.

Price: $84.99

Next… Boon Lawn Countertop Dryer

The flexible grass blades hold all your just-washed baby accessories. (And whatever else you want.) Plus it’s like having a fairway next to your kitchen sink. Minus any gophers. Or golfers. Bonus: No mowing required.

Price: $29.99

Swiffer Sweeper Vac

I use my Swiffer SweeperVac at least 3 times a day. The fact that I can charge it is wonderful. Anything I can do to save the batteries for my portable computer mouse (ugh, it’s a battery hog!).

Swiffer SweeperVac is great for:
Pet hair
Wood, tile or vinyl floors
Large food objects like raisins, cereal; and craft supplies such as beads
Non-carpeted stairs
