dream-on_crop6We’re excited to share a piece from Emilie Davidson Hoyt, LATHER Founder and Wellness Expert, with you today! Read up on her suggestions for everyone on your list this holiday season… we think you’ll find they’re pretty great.


I won’t name names.

There are some people I love to shop for during the holidays (my two kids!). Then, there are people for whom gift shopping feels a bit tricky, because you want to impress them, or you don’t know them well enough to ask, or perhaps you don’t want to ruin the surprise!

The holidays can be very stressful, but gift giving shouldn’t be. Below are my top five gift ideas that are sure to please everyone on your list, even the most discerning recipient. For glowing, healthy holiday skin – and a very happy gift recipient – LATHER has you covered.


For the teacher, colleague, tea lover/foodie or wellness warrior on your list: Dream On gift set

Let’s face it. Between shopping, family visits and festivities, the holiday season can leave people short on a good night’s rest. Our new Dream On gift set features slumber-inducing and botanically-based bath, wellness and aromatherapy products to help them relax and rejuvenate. This set includes new Blue Chamomile Foaming Bath Treatment, an organic custom-made sleep tea from Art of Tea, our Quiet Night Relaxing Balm, a sleep mask and a special edition Lavender Aromatherapy Candle to sesugar-plum-kisses_crop4t the mood.

Need a stocking stuffer for your babysitter, niece or a fun Secret Santa gift? Sugar Plum Kisses

This all-natural duo of a lip-smoothing scrub and lip conditioning balm, made with hydrating plum seed oil and scrumptious sugar plum candy aroma, will have visions of fairies dancing in their heads. (Or at the very least, ready to pucker up under the mistletoe!)

For your jet-setting friend, fitness fan, or business traveler: Sweat and Soothe

This no-excuses exercise set features all the essentials they’ll need for a workout and cooldown on the road. Included in the zippered toiletry kit are new Muscle Ease Bath Salts, our bestselling Muscle Ease Gel with Botanical Pain Relievers, a stretch band (with a 10-exercise workout guide) and one free month of unlimited on-demand workouts to celeb-loved barre workout Physique 57.

For your family or friends who love the spa: Vanilla Bath Fizz Combo

Pop some bubbly this holiday with this fun, effervescent bath soak combo! This set of six bath bombs, Vanilla & Tonka Bean and Vanilla & Citrus, combines soothing salts with nourishing botanicals that are sure to make any at-home spa day feel indulgent.

And, when you’re entertaining at-home or need a gift for the hostess: Winter Pear & Lavender Sink Sidekickwinter-pear-sink-sidekick_prop_crop5
