Home for the Holidays - Favorite Household Holiday Products

Some of the products in this post were provided by PR/the brand for consideration

I know, I know, household cleaning products aren't normally super thrilling (though I can't lie, I do love my cleaning products), but let's be serious, we all get a bit excited when the holiday scents start making their way to the shelves! With exactly a week left until Christmas, we're probably all doing the pre-Chritmas clean.  One of my favorite things about the holidays are the smells! I want everything--floors to ceilings--to smell like Christmas for my family and any guests. I've got a list of my favorite holiday household products from 2 of my favorite companies that will hopefully make prepping for the holidays a slightly more cheery experience!

Mrs. Meyers Profile

Mrs. Meyers is a brand I've liked for a long time--the scents remind me of where I grew up, everything works super well and Mrs. Meyers is environmentally-conscious as a brand. Named after it's creator, Mrs. Meyers puts out some of the best eco-conscious household cleaning products I've personally used and we regularly purchase their products over other brands.



Caldrea

Caldrea is a household product company that combines effective, safe cleaning formulas with aromatherapy. The products work extremely well and the scents are super lovely! If you're the type that finds most cleaning products to smell chemically or nauseating (that's me!), you have to get your hands on Caldrea products. 




Best Holiday Countertop Sprays - Mrs. Meyers and Caldrea

L to R - Mrs. Meyers Orange Clove, Caldrea Crimson Pear Ginger, Vanilla Quince Santal

1. Mrs. Meyers Orange Clove Countertop Spray

This smells so lovely! If you like citrus scents it's a nice fresh, warm citrus that makes your entire kitchen smell amazing after cleaning with it. It also works insanely well. I like this spray for use on my stovetop as well--takes everything right off.

Price
This retails for $3.99 (16 FL OZ)

Where to Buy
This is available wherever Mrs. Meyers products are sold. I personally have the best luck at Target with their products!

2. Caldrea Crimson Pear Ginger Countertop Spray

If you want something a bit more luxurious for cleaning your kitchen surfaces, this is a must! The Crimson Pear Ginger smells like a sophisticated blend of pear, ginger and spices with a tiny bit of sweet woodiness at the end. This cleans super well and smells amazing! 

Price
This retail for $9 (16 fl oz)

Where to Buy
This can be purchased anywhere Caldrea products are sold. I suggest checking Caldrea's online store finder.

3. Caldrea Vanilla Quince Santal

Like Crimson Pear Ginger this works really well for cleaning surfaces. It has a gentle vanilla scent (I hate chemical vanilla smells and this is really nice) that's a bit spicy and smooth.

Price
This retail for $9 (16 fl oz)

Where to Buy
This can be purchased anywhere Caldrea products are sold. I suggest checking Caldrea's online store finder.


Best Holiday Liquid Dish Soaps

L to R - Mrs. Meyers Cranberry, Caldrea Crimson Pear Ginger, Caldrea Vanilla Quince Santal

1. Mrs. Meyers Cranberry Liquid Dish Soap

I love cranberry scented things! The mix of tart and sweet is so lovely and it works so insanely well it makes washing dishes a much faster process (though still one of my least favorite things to do).

Price
This retails for $3.99 (16 fl oz)

Where to Buy
This is available wherever Mrs. Meyers products are sold. I personally have the best luck at Target with their products!

2. Caldrea Crimson Pear Ginger Liquid Dish Soap

This has the same scent as the countertop spray above--so nice! The scent does linger after you've cleaned, but it's not overpowering and I personally love it.

Price
This retail for $9 (16 fl oz)

Where to Buy
This can be purchased anywhere Caldrea products are sold. I suggest checking Caldrea's online store finder.

3. Caldrea Vanilla Quince Santal

Scented with the same fragrance as the countertop spray above, this works well and creates a classy scented sink full of suds--and yes, even a liquid dish soap can be classy if Caldrea has something to say about it!

Price
This retail for $9 (16 fl oz)

Where to Buy
This can be purchased anywhere Caldrea products are sold. I suggest checking Caldrea's online store finder.


Best Holiday Hand Soap and Moisturizer

L to R - Mrs. Meyers Iowa Pine liquid hand soap, Caldrea Crimson Pear Ginger hand lotion

1. Mrs. Meyers Iowa Pine Liquid Hand Soap

I always keep a kitchen hand soap by the sink in my kitchen (I'm a constant hand-washer, especially when I cook) and this is perfect for anyone that loves the smell of real pines. And when I say real, I do mean real! I am a New England so pines are pretty much everywhere. That smell will be forever ingrained in my memory. This has a strong, natural pine scent to it that is easily identifiable!

Price
This retail for $3.99 (12.5 fl oz)

Where to Buy
This is available wherever Mrs. Meyers products are sold. I personally have the best luck at Target with their products!

2. Caldrea Crimson Pear Ginger Hand Moisturizer

Of course with all the hand washing I do, I have to keep lotion nearby! I keep a pump in the kitchen, the bathroom and then tubes of it all over the house (and in my bag). This is a creamy lotion that smells amazing (like the other Crimson Pear Ginger products) and hydrates well. The pump is pretty enough it could be used in the kitchen or bathroom in my opinion. Caldrea even released these cute hand soap and moisturizer sets for the holidays that are super cute! I like using sets like this in the bathroom downstairs that people tend to frequent most when visiting. 

Price
This retails for $10.50

Where to Buy
This can be purchased anywhere Caldrea products are sold. I suggest checking Caldrea's online store finder.


Best Holiday Kitchen Candles

L to R - Mrs. Meyers Iowa Pin, Mrs. Meyers Orange Clove, Caldrea Crimson Pear Ginger

I'm a big fan of candles, but I'm insanely picky about scents. A lot of super chemically smelling ones give me major headaches and not many scents actually smell good to me. Both Mrs. Meyers and Caldrea put out kitchen candles for the holidays and all the ones I tested smelled really nice! I like to keep a few burning in the kitchen during the holiday. These don't have the fanciest packaging (though I love the shape of the Caldrea tin jar) so I feel as though these are most appropriate for burning slightly out of sight rather than on display.

1. Mrs. Meyers Iowa Pine Tin Candle

While Mrs. Meyers tin candles are simple in packaging, they smell amazing and throw a decent amount of fragrance while burning! This isn't the type of candle I'd put in the center of my table or in obvious view, but the type I like to burn out of sight near the stove. If you like the scent of real pines this candle is for you!

Price
This retail for $2.99 (12 hr burn time)

Where to Buy
This is available wherever Mrs. Meyers products are sold. I personally have the best luck at Target with their products!

2. Mrs. Meyers Orange Clove Tin Candle

I love this smell! It's home-y, warm and citrusy--such a perfect holiday scent. Again, this has the same tin packaging the Iowa Pine has so it's not something I'd put on display personally, but it throws an amazing scent and is definitely worth using in my opinion.

Price
This retail for $2.99 (12 hr burn time)

Where to Buy
This is available wherever Mrs. Meyers products are sold. I personally have the best luck at Target with their products!

3. Caldrea Crimson Pear Ginger Tin Candle

One of my favorite scents in the bunch, though they're all nice, I love the tin this candle comes in! It's small and cute, not overly decorative, but still nice. 

Price
This retails for $12.50 (up to 25 hrs of burn time)

Where to Buy
This can be purchased anywhere Caldrea products are sold. I suggest checking Caldrea's online store finder.
