I dropped in on Oolala at opening time the morning after Winter Walk. As might be expected, owner Jessica Prill was running a bit slow but offered her ideas by phone. Her trusty employee, Emma Closser, was there to guide me to the gifts.
It started with Munki Munki lounge wear. These (what we used to call) pajamas come in 100% cotton or a cotton-silk blend and are, according to Emma, “incredibly cozy”.
Next on the list was the Dr. Hauschka line of “really great” skin-care products. They are widely regarded as being extremely effective and are 15% off for the month of December, including the starter-kit.
A Minnesota product suggestion was the Tula-Blu candles. These long-burning soy candles are soot-free and currently feature some special holiday scents.
Finally, there are the Thymes products, including the new Moonflower scent. The combination of the scent-coordinated bath salts, candle, and body lotion struck me as a truly affectionate, even amorous, gift set idea.
So, for some romantic gift ideas, pop into Oolala and let Jessica or Emma give you some thoughtful advice.
