For the Holidays: Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Gift Set

Gift sets are a great holiday present for the people on your list that you just don’t know what to get. We all have those people. Perhaps you don’t know them that well. Or maybe you’ve known them for years, but they’re just so hard to shop for.

Well, if there’s a chance your hard-to-shop-for person might like a bath and body gift set, you might want to consider the Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Gift Set. This set features all-natural vegan ingredients straight from the Amazon.

Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Gift Set: The BagThe Amazonia Preciosa Gift Set comes in this nice case/toiletry bag. Half of it is plastic and the other half is a nice burlap-style fabric.

Also, the tag that comes attached to the gift set actually has seeds in it. Throw it in some dirt and see what grows!

Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Gift Set: The ContentsInside, you get travel-sized versions of the following:

  • Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Hand & Body Lotion
  • Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Scrub Shower Gel
  • Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Cupuacu Shampoo
  • Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Cupuacu Conditioner

A Note About the Scent: There are no artificial fragrances in this set, however, it does have natural oils from the Amazonia Preciosa Tree—and it has a very distinct scent.

I’ve never smelled a bath and body product quite like this. To me, it smells like wood smoke with a hefty dash of nutmeg. It’s smoky and spicy and only very slightly sweet. Because of this, it would be perfect for both men and women. (Don’t worry—you don’t notice the scent much once you’re out of the shower.)

While I found the scent odd, I really liked it. It was so unique.

Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Gift Set: Hand & Body LotionThe Hand & Body Lotion, the only thing in this gift set that doesn’t come in a jar, is super lightweight. It’s a good lotion if you live in (or are traveling to) a mild or humid climate. Though, if you have really dry skin, this might not be enough.

Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Gift Set: Scrub Shower GelThe Scrub Shower Gel has tiny little beads that help you gently exfoliate skin. While it does have those exfoliators, it’s not jam-packed with them, so you can still use this on a daily basis.

Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Gift Set: Shampoo and ConditionerIf you hate sulfates in your hair products, then you’ll love the Cupuacu Shampoo and Conditioner. While the shampoo doesn’t suds-up a lot, it does still leave hair clean and fresh.

The conditioner is made for “Normal and Straight Hair.” I’m not exactly sure what that means, but it made my naturally curly hair feel relatively soft. Also, the conditioner has the strongest scent of all the products in this gift set.

It’s gift time!

Okay, let’s see if this is right for those hard-to-shop-for people on your holiday list.

The Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Gift Set is perfect for…

  • both men and women
  • those that love gift sets
  • people who like unique smoky/spicy scents
  • those that prefer bath and body sets without any artificial scents
  • travelers

  • gifts under $50

You can pick this up at the Surya Brasil website, health food stores and specialty shops for $38.
