In this gift guide, we’re suggesting 8 great gift ideas that can set a mood, or improve her mood! Read on to see our suggestions.
Candles For ME Time
Candles set the mood. Give her a Joy & Laughter aromatherapy boost with some beautifully scented (and affordable) candles from Chesapeake Bay Candle’s Mind & Body Collection in a single, double or triple wick frosted jar.
We reviewed the Chestnut & Acorn collection of candles for holiday 2017, but this collection is for “me” time. The candles are not just pretty to look at with frosted glass and natural wood covers, each is made with natural soy wax blend, self-trimming wicks, and essential oils.
The Joy and Laughter scented Chesapeake Bay Mind and Body candle is a pretty fruity floral with notes of cassis, cranberry and plum nectar, followed with rose, peppercorn and dahlia in the heart and cedar wood and mahogany plus essential oils of orange peel, lemon, cedar wood.
Milk & Honey are gourmands with a hint of spice. The impressive Chesapeake Bay Coffee Table Candle ($25) has several wicks and will burn for approximately 20 hours.
Chesapeake Bay has plenty of different sizes and shapes. See these scented goodies at places like Target, Amazon, Wayfair and Kmart.

Wine Not For Her?
I know someone who literally ended up in the emergency room after trying to open a bottle of wine with a traditional corkscrew. Whether it’s wine-o-clock or for a dinner party, The Perfect Wine Opener Set from Vineyard Elite lets her open wine bottles quickly, easily, elegantly and safely.
This lovely boxed set of wine-centric tools we think will delight her, because opening wine is not just a man’s job. This set includes an easy to use Perfect Pump Wine Opening (place needle in the cork, push down until the needle entirely pierces the cork, pump and after 4-8 pumps the cork just out of the bottle.
You also get a Perfect Foil Cutter and 3 Perfect Seal Vacuum wine sealers. The gift set retails for $69.95 and is available online at www.perfectwineopener.com and wine retailers nationwideTodd Schuetz
Spice Up Her Life
Does spice set a mood? We think it does! These gourmet salts are from New Zealand, from Pacific Resources International. The four little bottles are grinders, so she gets just the freshest salt availalbe and just as much as she needs.
The fine milled Pacific Sea salt is perfect for seasoning food while cooking or at the table, and there’s enough to last a long time. PRI sells theses in various sizes all the way up to a 2/2 lb. bag.
These are not ordinary salt products. They are created by a natural drying process by sun and wind. for 13-22 months and harvested from clean oceans around New Zealand. The salt retains all the natural trace elements, it’s not iodized and it’s certified Kosher.
PRI is also your place to get delicious chocolates with Manuka honey, other products with manuka honey, or just… manuka honey!

No Bugs For Her
Last Summer we reviewed a unique and essential product for anyone who likes to stay outdoors, called DynaTrap. It traps flying insects using UV light to attract them so they don’t invade your outside or inside spaces.
The outside version of the DynaTrap is large and extremely effective but there’s a small version the DynaTrap Flylight Srp. $19 that protects up to 600 sq. feet. of indoor space. This small device stops annoying flies and other winged insects.
There are no chemicals, it’s odor-free and most of all, it’s safe and silent. Just plug it in and if there a flying insect appears, it will be attracted to the UV light and trapped inside. The inside version has two USB charging ports, one on each side, plus two regular outlet plugs.
This is a gift for the woman who prizes her woolens and doesn’t want the months to get them: The indoor version of the DynaTrap plugs into an AC outlet. Cleaning it out is easy because there are sticky boards behind the UV light to trap the bugs.
All she has to do when a sticky board is full is slide it out from the top and use another board (three are included).
At first, you may not think this is a great gift idea, but when those flying insects and moths invade her abode, she will thank you for the DynaTrap gift every single day.
Get it in white or black. For more information Visit the DynaTrap website: https://dynatrap.com/introducing-dynatrap-flylight
Gourmet Snack Attack!
Who doesn’t love popcorn gifts? And it’s even better when it’s with amazing gourmet flavors from Maddie & Maize such as the ones in our photo. The all-natural, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free popcorn featuring Vegan flavors comes in both savory and sweet flavors tailor-made for parties and sensational snacking.
We tried a bunch of both: Lemon Raspberry Layer Cake, Bourbon Barbecue, Dark Chocolate Caramel, Thai Coconut Curry, Birthday Cake, Cookies & Cream and Aged White Cheddar.I
These are sophisticated flavors, especially the Thai Coconut Curry and Bourbon Barbeque, but the sweet versions have a delicious drizzle of icing...so delicious too!

We’ve found a novel way to scent your work area, a small room or even your car. GuruNanda makes 100% pure essential oils. They also make this GuruNanda Natural Mist, a USB powered plug-in essential oil diffuser that adds your choice of aromatherapy mist to the air directly from the bottle. You can also plug it in an outlet.
Whether she’s into relaxing, energizing or calming scents, or just wants to cover up kitty’s cat box or a stale smell in her car (in a USB outlet), the GuruNanda Natural Mist does it. This makes a unique gift idea!
Tip: clean the diffuser plate with a cotton swap when changing oils. Get it for $16.99 in the pharmacy section of select Walmart stores or at https://www.GuruNanda.com
