Hi --

I need a nice hostess gift...I learned she loves the lavender fragrance, which I do not. Since I don't I'm not a good judge of who has a really quality product.

Off hand I can only think of Crabtree & Evelyn or Bath and Body Works...what's out there that would be an "upscale" gesture?
Online or brick-and-mortar suggestions welcome. (I'm in area of Houston, TX.)

Skin lotion? Bath gel? Soap? Shampoo/conditioner? etc....

Many thanks, ladies!

Le Couvent des Minimes Lavender & Acacia Extra Gentle Creamy Scrub, 10.5 oz. - Skin care - Beauty - Macy's

A deco pillow filled with real lavender and flaxseed or buckwheat is so relaxing to just lay on.
Aromatherapy without effort. Look for one of those.

L'Occitanne has some great lavender products. If you don't have a store near you they have a website. Jo Malone has a lavender line if you want to go very upscale.

Thank you, Pitt-T! I may just head off to Macy's today to see this collection. Appreciate the recommendation.

Oh - just saw the reply from longboat too -- many thanks! I know L'Occitane (sp?)
is a fine line too. Thanks again ladies!

Love L'Occitanne lavender bath soap....so fragrant!

L'Occitane is yummy! I cannot live without their shea butter, I buy it in the large tins and use it for every thing.
And yes Jo Malone is expensive but totally worth it, especially the fragrances.

I received a spa blanket from this place as a gift and I love it. It has that inner pad you put in the microwave and a soft purple velvety slipcover. It's like $60 but so worth it. They specialize in lavender!

Wow, this site has some lovely looking products! I've sent them an email asking if/how they do gift packaging. If they do I may just go with them! I am fussy about gift-giving though; I like to have seen the items myself. But I may make an exception here. Thanks for the link, and to everyone else for their replies too! Some of these forums are so helpful!
