If you are looking for some fantastic gifts to brighten up your Holiday, Lassen's has some great ideas.  Our gift buyer, Katie, has been searching far and wide to bring you a wonderful selection of great items for everyone on your list!  And you might want to pick up some unique things for yourself, too!

So here are some ideas!

Teas

I love this tea idea--the bottle is a cold-water tea bottle!  Put the loose tea in the bottle and add cold water--in a little while you have a refreshing bottle of tea!  Herbal or traditional, tea is hot --or cold, if you like -- this year!

These seasonal varieties of tea from the Republic of Tea make great gifts as well.  It's always nice to have a warm cup of herbal tea on a cold morning or night!  We also have some fun tea balls--one that is spring loaded to keep the loose tea contained, or the cute heart-shaped tea ball on a chain.  Toss these items in a basket, add a bow, and you have a great gift!

Growing Kits

And don't forget sprouting!  This is such an easy and fun way to introduce gardening to everyone!  A kit is a good way to start--foolproof!











Pampering!

gift+ideas, incense+kits
Some incense, a few candles, a yummy foot scrub, bath salts...

Sounds like a great pampering basket is in the works!  Triloka has a great selection of incense sticks to calm the busiest of days.
deep+steep, foot+care
Deep Steep has some of my favorite products.  With drier weather, your feet could use some serious pampering.  And these holiday candy cane products are just plain fun!
What would pampering be without chocolate?  Luckily, we've got you covered in that department!  Forget mass-produced brands--go for the specialty varieties without a zillion added ingredients!  You, and your loved ones, will really enjoy these choices!







Foodie

Accessorize!

Copper bracelets are a great gift idea--and there are several styles to choose from.

There are lots more necklaces and other jewelry--I love the combination of beads and stones with interesting twine and other materials.  










You will LOVE this bottle!

gift+ideas, hydro+flask, hot+or+cold+bottle

I was given one of these Hydro Flask bottles, and they really deliver!  It really does keep cold drinks cold, and hot drinks hot.  I fill mine with ice and then water, and seriously, there is still ice in it the next day!  I love it so much that I got one with a hot-drink top for those days when I want to take along some hot herbal tea!  This is a great gift for your on-the-go friends!

This is only scratching the surface of all of the great gift items that we carry at Lassen's!  Come in and browse!  And check back on Thursday for some stocking-stuffer ideas, too.

Love, Lassen's
