Ah, the holidays are here! Along with your growing list of parties and things to get done before the end of the year, you probably have a few gifts to get and to give. But don’t worry, Peach has compiled some select items that make excellent gifts – for yourself or someone deserving of a bit of holiday cheer.

The (VERY) Nice-To-Haves

Next-Level Home Fragrance

The Hotel Collection, known for replicating fragrance profiles of luxurious hotels and venues for your home, has probably the best scent diffuser on the market: the electronic and programmable nano-mist diffuser. And with their latest scent profile, a collaboration with world-famous Miami nightclub E11EVEN, your home will be scented to perfection.

Luxuriate Your Laundry

If you’re fed up with plain-smelling laundry detergent that ravishes your fashions with harsh chemicals, switch to a smarter way to clean clothes with Dirty Labs. With active bio enzymes, this detergent is gentle on clothes and skin, is biodegradable, and has a scent profile more like Le Labo rather than Gain.

The Gift of Protection

Put a Chain On It

A stylish accessory while also signifying what you have together. A cool pendant chain is a great way to show appreciation and affection – and it isn’t a ring, so it’s not at a 100 on the commitment scale either.

MVMT Hex Necklace, $58 at mvmt.com

Monogrammed Wanderlust

A thoughtful and personal gift that could underline the resolve to travel together in the new year – or it could even be paired with a pair of tickets to a dream destination!
