12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide: For the Domestic Goddess

See also

On Sunday morning as you’re struggling to pick up the phone and order your trust bacon, egg and cheese, she’s somehow managed to make a quiche. Fresh flowers? She’s got them in every room while you barely manage to keep alive your cactus (those things are supposed to be indestructible, right?). The Domestic Goddess puts us all to shame with her organic meals, handmade everything, and perfectly decorated rooms. But her hands - between all of the scrubbing, baking, fluffing and folding – have seen better days.

This holiday get her the gift that will make her feel rewarded for her hard work on the home front, and still will look chic in the kitchen! The Kitchen Essentials Kit in Spiced Chestnut from longtime home experts, Williams Sonoma.

The comforting blend soothes with the warm, buttery fragrance of chestnut essence, spiced with aromatic cinnamon and clove. Gift sets include a hand soap formulated with soothing olive oil, aloe vera and glycerin, a hand lotion with natural shea butter and vitamin-rich botanical oils, and dish soap containing soapbark extract, a natural degreaser. What’s more - all are earth-friendly, containing no parabens, ammonia, chlorine or lauramide DEA.

In a chic wire caddy, the kitchen essentials kit is exactly as it claims, an essential. A little reminder that, as she whisks, soaks, juices and purees, to pamper everyone who enters her home, that she deserves a little pampering, too.
