Holiday 2010: Scentsy

Scentsy is a rapidly growing direct sales company that offers a variety of scented, wickless candles and new stuffed animals. They offer products for both moms and children this holiday season.

I have been a fan of Scentsy for a few years now so I couldn’t wait to try out some of the new scents and the adorable Scentsy Buddy!

GIFTS FOR MOMS:

Scentsy flameless candles. Since the candles are flameless, they provide a safer alternative for moms who worry about the fire hazard associated with traditional candles. The products are great for moms as they are affordable, stylish and kid-friendly. Because there are no flames they are a safe alternative to traditional candles – so you don’t have to worry about children or pets knocking them over and starting a fire!

With more than 80 fragrances to choose from — including scents like baked apple pie and green tea smoothie — and three sizes of warmers in more than 50 decorative styles (including DIY warmers for the craftier moms and even new holiday styles), Scentsy is ideal for any size and style space. All you need is a Scentsy ceramic warmer and scented wax bars. Simply plug in a Scentsy warmer, turn it on and place one or more sections of the Scentsy bar into the ceramic dish. As the wax melts (a low wattage light bulb heats the wax), it will release a fragrance into the air. Warmers are $15-$35 (depending on the size and collection) and Scentsy bars are $5 each.

GIFTs FOR KIDS:

 Scentsy has just released a new product, The Scentsy Buddy, a scented stuffed animal. Unlike a traditional stuffed animal, a Scentsy Buddy™ fills the air with fragrance thanks to a zippered pocket that holds a small pouch of food grade scent beads. These plush stuffed animals are $25 each and include one Scent Pak.

I picked Ollie the Elephant.  

Tell Ollie your secrets—he’s got a great memory! Elephants never forget, and their big, floppy ears make it easy for them to listen very closely. You’ll never have to tell Ollie anything twice!

Ollie loves living in the forest with the rest of the Buddies, but it’s so mushy and green, it affects his allergies. You don’t want to be near Ollie’s trunk when he lets out a loud ACHOOO! It’s best to keep an extra-large tissue handy at all times.

*A product was received.

    I cant believe how affordable and yummy these products are! And the shipping costs are very reasonable…a great plus this time of year especially. I am going to order for the God Mothers of our 3 kids here at home. I had not heard of the Scentsy Buddies though. What a nice way to freshen up a childs’ room!

    My husband and I are allergic to most scents so we have never wanted scented products around us at all.

    I love that they offer flameless products. Scentsy seems to be all the rage right now as I have several people at work that sell these products and I must admit they have the most amazing smells. I absolutely love the Scentsy Buddies, they are so soft and smell great.

    I like Ollie too!

    But I’m partial. Ollie was my daughter’s nickname.

    I’ve never owned a Scentsy product but I’m redoing my son’s bedroom. I like the idea of flameless candles.
