Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year. It is a time of reflection, celebration, being of service, and a time we celebrate the birth of Christ. Right now we are in the midst of difficult times and so this year I made a conscious choice to purchase gifts under $30 dollars.

If you want the aromatherapy benefits of an essential oil diffuser but don’t care for all the bells and whistles, the PureMist diffuser from SpaRoom is the aroma diffuser for you. SpaRoom has made a name for itself in the aromatherapy arena and you can find SpaRoom products in most big retailers (like Target and Walmart).
This aroma diffuser in particular offers a great mist output of diffused essential oil for a low price — less-expensive diffusers often put out a weaker mist. The PureMist diffuser has an LED light that changes colors, a 100-milliliter water capacity and a maximum three-hour run time. $30 AT SPAROOM

This bamboo platter is the perfect starting block to layer on favorites like brie, sharp cheddar, and goat cheese alongside jams, assorted nuts, and crackers.
