Do oranges remind you of the holidays? I remember making pomander balls (oranges studded with cloves) in the days before Christmas when I was a little girl.the spicy aroma of cloves and the sweetness of orange instantly made me get into the holiday spirit. It still does.
It's one of my favorite essential oils. In fact, it's a hit for many because of it's sweet aroma and familiarity. It's a favorite of all ages, too. What I love about orange is that it is so versatile -- sunny and welcoming in the summer, yet warm and inviting in the winter.
I have been searching all over the net for some really fabulous orange gifts for our gift guide today. If you have someone on your gift list this year who loves oranges, these gift ideas will comes in handy.

I love Orange Marmalade. One of my favorite breakfast spots makes an orange marmalade stuffed French toast (it also has cream cheese in the filling) -- and I like it on biscuits, toast, and English muffins as well. I also do thumbprint cookies this time of year using orange marmalade. The Blood Orange Marmalade from Stonewall Kitchen is a delicious choice and would be lovely in a gift basket for the foodie in your life.
