It sounds outrageous, but it’s that time of year again! Time to pull out the holiday decor, draft up those shopping lists and find presents for all the friends and family – whew!  It’s exhausting just thinking about everything that has to be done in time.  But breathe, Beauty. Just breathe.  We've got some ideas for taking care of YOU (and that shopping list) during this busy time of year.

For starters:  Put YOU in the calendar.

Whether it's a dedicated time each week or a small portion of every day, scheduling self-care is one way to ensure it gets done! Block off 30 minutes to an hour every day to do something that makes you feel good -- getting in a good workout, taking a walk, curling up with a good book or soaking in the tub with your favorite bubble bath (*wink wink). It's your self-care time, enjoy it how you see fit!  As long as you take some time away from the to-do list in order to do you, it counts. Don't put added pressure on yourself to find something outside of your routine and call it 'self-care' -- always find a ritual or routine that feels natural and focus on that.

Ok, now, sharpen that pencil and let's get to the list! 

No matter who you’re shopping for, body and skin care products are always a hit.  So many of us neglect self-care or pampering time so when you’re gifted with deliciously scented products or plant-based formulas that nourish and hydrate skin, it means a lot!

Enter Deep Steep:  Our products are high quality, feature plant-based ingredients that are free from sulfates, dyes and other skin-irritating ingredients, and smell amaaaaaazing. Check out this year's list of gifts that everyone on your list can appreciate 😉

1. Bubbles!

Whether it’s 2 minutes or 20 minutes, the time we spend caring for our bodies is time well spent when we allow our troubles to wash away. Inspired by the beauty and benefits of ancient Japanese bathing rituals, Deep Steep celebrates self care as a way to renew and replenish the body-mind-spirit connection.

It's no secret that a hot tub of frothy scented bubbles is sure to relax even the busiest elf!  An excellent gift for both the head of household and the head of hearth- be it the super-powered-stay-at-home partner or the frequent flyer - a Bubble Bath by Deep Steep is the ultimate Thank You gift.

With scents ranging from Brown Sugar Vanilla and Fig Apricot to Lavender Chamomile and Rosemary Mint, there's a relaxing scent for everyone on your nice list!
