I am using some host credits to purchase the nursery warmer for a friend who is having a baby next year. However, I don't know what type of scents to buy as I don't know what she likes. When you buy a gift for someone, how do you pick out the scents. It seems like something that would be so personal (like perfume).

If I don't have any idea to their preferences, I give them at least 3 scents, all of very different categories - maybe one spice, one clean and one fruity. Then let the recipient know that I'd be happy to swap them out for different scents if there is something they really didn't care for.

Okay, good idea.

I also agree, give them a few and let them know that you have others for them to choose from if they want to.

Thanks Lisa... it was time for a change!

As far as variety in gift scents, you may be introducing the recipient to a scent she may have never selected herself but will end up loving it after she warms it.

Giving a variety is a great idea. I also find vanilla is usually pretty safe for gifts, as it tends to be very popular.

I also link them to the top sellers list that is released each month in the newsletter. I post this info on my Scentsy blog and FB.

A variety is always a good idea. Also, consider sticking to scents that aren't going to be too overwhelming. Vanilla Walnut is a good mild choice, I know I'm also selling quite a bit of Christmas Cottage. Go through the "Favorites" scents and you should find a good selection. And I too always trade scents out if they hate them.
