Heading into Christmas and wrapping up Channukah we are surrounded by all things peppermint. I love peppermint do you?

Around this time of year we enjoy serving my clients at my beauty studio all kinds of yummy drinks and things around peppermint.We also love making small gifts for our clients that they can take home with them and enjoy.

But now with the pandemic we can’t really do all things as usual. But I can still share these entertaining and pampering gift ideas 🎁 with you.

Just for fun …hang a candy cane on drink glasses like eggnog,hot cocoa, milk or even a glass of pink champagne. Festive and cute!

Kids version: Kids love it hanging on a mug of hot chocolate, milk, fruit punch and or pink lemonade

Peppermint ice cream. Sometime is so HARD TO FIND. Or simply sold out! So, one day I decided to just make it on my own. Makes a fun hostess or Holiday gift too. All you need is a gallon of vanilla ice cream. Buy some mini candy canes and smash them with a meat tenderizer. Mix in to the slightly melted ice cream. Place the mixture into a festive colored or designed Tupperware or freezer ware. Place an unwrapped mini candy cane to the top of the ice cream and freeze. Sort of like the cherry on top.

Make some massage oil by infusing around 3 drops or more of peppermint essential oil to some almond oil or jojoba. Double up with more oil for a larger bottle. I like to make mini versions.Fill in a bottle with a pour out spout if possible. Give as a gift saying what it is and directions on how to use it.

Use peppermint oil in a foot bath and turn your bathroom into a spa. Fill a basin with warm to hot water,add a cup of Epsom salts and sprinkle in a few drops of peppermint oil. Peppermint is known for its energizing properties and is a refreshing pick me up for tired feet and legs. If you stand a lot for your job this is a great treat year round. You can bottle some Epsom salts with peppermint essential oil, tie a ribbon on and give as a gift too!

Have allergies, want to purify the air or staying indoors more now that the weather is colder and winter arrives tomorrow! Invest in a soothing aromatherapy lamp. Finding one that that changes colors is life changing. So pretty to look at and relax to. Really helps with your mood and stress. The rainbow of shades illuminate the room while the peppermint oil helps with allergens in the air. I own and love the lamp by CHI (Yes, the iconic hair brand makes one) This makes a fabulous gift too.

I wish you a delightful and refreshing peppermint candy cane kind day!
