this holiday season i’m loving anything vintage or vintage inspired. i’m also crazy about great packaging, which is why i included some soaps from french paper and fresh. the fragrances are lovely, but the packaging is even better. also check out anthropologie for great accessories like their amazing pinch pine tea set. i hope this list helps give you some ideas for the holidays! -samantha
