One of the best parts of the holiday is to enjoy the scents of the season. From decadent peppermint scents to the sweet aroma that comes from baking Santa some cookies, there are so many festive fragrances in the air — especially when it comes to hand sanitizers. Now, you can treat your friends and family to these holiday hand sanitizers that will make the cutest addition to your stocking stuffer gifts.
Although hand sanitizers have always been a classic stocking stuffer choice, this year, the usefulness of some extra germ defense is even greater due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Keep in mind when shopping for holiday hand sanitizers that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends using hand sanitizers that have a minimum of 60% alcohol.
So, this season, why not treat everyone on your list, including yourself, in Christmas style with some festive hand sanitizers? Luckily, you can fight bacteria while still celebrating the holidays with winter mint hand sanitizers wrapped in personalized bottles. Or, you can surprise your loved ones with cranberry cider disinfectant to remind them to wash their hands and enjoy the season.
These pocket-sized and winter-themed gifts double as handy essentials and whimsical treats. Your loved ones won't stop thanking you for this thoughtful gift, and will think of you every time they pull out their cute bottle from their pocket or purse.
