The Best Body Products That Smell Like Christmas

Updated 10/31/18

There's no denying the power of fragrance, especially around the holidays. A whiff of spicy ginger, cinnamon, or clotted cream can conjure up memories of just about every merry moment of years past. Then there's burnt sugar, peppermint, and steamy cocoa. I'm getting excited just thinking about it. I can't wait to purchase a few products that'll have me dreaming of all that holiday goodness weeks before I start assembling decorations. 

With that in mind, I pulled together a few favorite body products with scents of pine, cloves, and muddled plum. With these in tow, there's no way you'll avoid the holiday spirit this time around. I guarantee it. Keep scrolling for all the goods.
