As much as I love me a good pumpkin spice latte, gingerbread is where it's at. I can't get over the mix of spicy and sweet perfection that is this blissful holiday treat, which is why I've pulled together the best gingerbread-scented beauty products out there! Whether you want to keep these for yourself or are looking for holiday presents for friends, every single one is the best way to get into the Christmas spirit.
Looking back, I think I have my grandmother to blame for my gingerbread obsession. Every year up until she passed away, my sister and I would spend Christmas Eve Eve (yes, eve eve) at her and my grandpa's home making gingerbread houses. While they never looked quite as good as gingerbread houses worthy of living in (I usually couldn't resist taking a bite out of the roof), one whiff of the sweet bread takes me right back to memories of being an eight year old with my fingers caked in frosting and sprinkles.
Sense of smell brings back the most vivid memories, and if you're anything like me, gingerbread will give you all the holiday feels, even if it's not coming out of the kitchen or your mug. Put down your gingerbread latte for a second and check out these dreamy gingerbread-scented products!
