There’s never a bad time to celebrate the women in your life. The holiday season, however, gives you every reason to take the opportunity to say to thank you to those superwomen in your orbit for all they do throughout the year, to show them that you care, that the things they selflessly do for you and others everyday does not go unnoticed.

With the explosion of online shopping, gift buying has never been easier. But the sheer amount of things so easily purchased has also made the task stressful and complicated.  

In attempting to narrow down your choices, it helps to know the bigger picture. With people having been through so much uncertainty in the last 18 months, there really is no need to go big and expensive when buying gifts. The key is to stay practical, and thoughtful, all at once. Not only do you want to select a gift the women in your life can use and enjoy, you also want to choose something that has meaning, and a bigger purpose.

So to help you on your quest to buy her the ideal present, we’ve honed in on these thoughtful holiday gift ideas that are sure to be meaningful long after they’ve been opened.

Studio Apartment Candles

Nothing is quite as evocative, as life affirming, as emotional as the sense of smell.  That’s why a smoldering scented candle from Studio Apartment will transform mundane spaces into extraordinary sanctuaries.

The Vancouver based candle company produces candles that are the pinnacle of perfection with a range of exotic scents that she will cherish time and time again. The candles are crafted from 100% natural coconut apricot wax that has a superior cold and hot throw compared to soy-based wax, and combined with plant-based fragrance oils that produce bold and desirous aromas. 

There’s no sacrificing quality and our environment as these candles contain no parabens, phthalates or synthetic dyes.  

Popular candles include the West Coast Cedar, the Neroli Blossom and the Sticks and Tabac. 

Muse Health Hand Sanitizer

With the sheer proliferation of hand sanitizers on the market over the last 18 months, you might not initially think of hand sanitizer as a unique and memorable gift idea this Christmas. Well think again, because not all hand sanitizers are created equal. 

Muse Health produces a dual action hand sanitizer and moisturizer that is sure to be her go-to sanitizer and for many reasons. Made with 62% ethyl alcohol, Muse Health offers a rich, gel-like texture that kills 99.9 percent of germs in 15 seconds. Even better, it’s packed with vitamin E and glycerin to keep her hands soft and supple no matter how many times she uses it. The company offers a fragrance-free version that provides the same instant protection and lasting hydration. It’s a gift that will both pamper and protect the women in your life. 

Muse Health also comes with a worthy mission as well. Their hand sanitizer is cruelty-free, vegan, and doesn’t contain any harmful ingredients like parabens, dyes, or synthetics.  The brand also instituted a Buy One-Give One initiative, donating a bottle of their hand sanitizer to communities in need for every one sold.

Larq Water Bottle PureVis

High end water bottles have become all the rage in the last few years, but Larq takes the trend to another level indeed. The LARQ Bottle PureVis is the world’s first self-cleaning water bottle and water purification system.  LARQ uses UV-C LED light to eliminate up to 99.9999% of bio-contaminants from your water and bottle giving you complete peace of mind.
