Pusheens and scented School Supply scented Christmas gifts are now on sale for a limited time.
If you are thinking about buying a scented Santa suit for your child or any other holiday gift, here’s what you need to know.
Scents can be a bit overwhelming for kids.
“You don’t really know what you’re getting yourself into,” says Amanda Bostwick, senior vice president at the National Scents Association.
It can be overwhelming for them to have to decide if they want to wear a certain scent or not.
“They are probably looking for a little bit of guidance, and they’re not always getting that guidance from the people they know.”
If a scents box is too heavy or bulky, you can buy a smaller box for less money.
If your kids are going to be in school, they probably won’t get the most comfortable items.
There are some scents that are great for kids with allergies, but they can make a child feel uncomfortable and/or uncomfortable to wear, says Bostwicks.
Also, kids will likely feel awkward wearing certain scents.
Scented Christmas presents can be intimidating to older kids.
“A lot of people are trying to make their kids feel comfortable,” says Bount.
They might not know what to expect and the scents can make them feel awkward.
“You can’t tell if a gift is going to make them more comfortable or not,” she says.
Scent boxes are expensive, but you can save money by not buying anything from Amazon.
Amazon offers the scented holiday boxes at a discounted price.
Bount suggests you get a box from your local Wal-Mart, Target, Costco or Sam’s Club.
Some scents contain chemicals that are considered allergens.
For instance, some scented toys, scents, and other items may contain chemicals called phthalates, which can cause breathing problems for children and adults.
“So if you are looking for something to try, then you need a safe, non-allergenic, nonporous scented product,” says Jennifer Dolan, associate director for children’s health and wellness at the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
Scant purchases make it difficult for your kids to buy more stuff.
“It’s really hard for them, because they’re learning,” says Dolan.
“And they are spending a lot of time thinking about their Christmas gift because they are so hungry.”
Scenarios that parents have come up with can vary.
Some parents use scents from multiple brands and can’t get all the scent combinations they want.
Another option is to buy the same scents multiple times to get different scents in different colors.
Some parents prefer to make a single scented gift for their child, or have their children try out different scented gifts.
However, some parents may prefer to buy a small box for each child.
“If your kid is going for a small gift, then I would encourage you to buy multiple boxes and try different scant options,” says Dr. Julie Furlong, a family medicine physician at New York University Langone Medical Center.
Scam sites can be expensive.
A lot is up in the air, including what brands are on the market, who makes scents and who sells scents on their site.
