The colder it gets outside the more I find myself baking and filling my house with the wonderful holiday smells.  The kids and I have started plotting holiday crafts, and finally decided on a few DIY ideas for the holidays, but I think we’re going to do gingerbread cookies in a mason jar as gifts.  We did choclate chip coockies one year and everyone loved them, this year it’s gingerbread man cookies in a jar.  

If you’re looking for some DIY ideas for the holidays we have several we think you’ll enjoy!  They’re easy, fun, and inspired by some super scents!

You might have read our post about the Febreze Fall Collection, which we loved!  Well, the Home for the Holidays Collection is as good, maybe even a little sweeter, I’m not too sure… I know the Vanilla Late scent makes me want to make another coffee drink like I did with the fall cents only add a cinnamon stick for something a little more fun.

  • Apple Tart – I love the smell of apple, it whiteout a doubt makes me think of the holidays, and it’s one of my favorite holiday smells.  Febreze Apple Tart is amazing, a mouthwatering scent of succulent baked apples sprinkled with sugar and spice.  If you like the smell of anything apple baking on the holidays then you’ll love Apple Tart by Febreze.
  • Sugared Cranberry – Oh yummy, I have never tried sugared cranberries, but I do love cranberries and the smell of Febreze Sugared Cranberry. 
  • Toasted Almond – One of my favorite things is almonds, and that’s any time of year.  The Toasted Almond Febreze is AWESOME!  Imagine the richness of buttery almonds with a touch of sweetness behind a warm fire. 
  • Frosted Pine – One thing I miss about living back home with my mom and dad is the pine scent first thing in the morning.  The scent of being back home.  This amazing earthy fragrance smells like fresh cut family pine tree.
  • Vanilla Latte – I’m not sure what is not to love about the sweet vanilla and spices in steamed milk to warm your spirts this holiday season.  

Be sure to swing by Walmart.com and learn more about the Febreze Home for the Holidays Collection!  Don’t ask me to choose a favorite, it’s too hard this time of year, lol.  I am not even joking, I drive my husband crazy becasue this is the only time o fyear I put different scents in different rooms.  I love it, his nose gets confused, and everything will go back to normal after the holidays lol!
