Holiday Gift Giving

This is my favorite time of year for beauty products, because you get a chance to give someone that beauty splurge they have been pining after, or give a gift set with a variety of products to try.  There are some wonderful values and fun stocking stuffers, too.

Countdown the days with these fun beauty advent calendars:

Benefit Party Poppers – SURPRISE…it’s the 12 days of gorgeous! Open up this holiday set to play an original “Bene-song” then pop open each door to reveal a glamorous goodie for a full face look. It’s priced to please.

L’occitane Advent calendar 

KAI is one of my favorite product lines ever things ever and it  is great for gifting.  

This year, I will be gifting the CandleReed Diffuser and Body Buffers.

They also make fabulous and unexpected hostess gifts.

I love giving gift sets, because they are a great value and gives the recipient a chance to try a few different things.  Here are some of my favorites from FRESH:

Find your happily-ever-after lip look with the ultimate Sugar sampler featuring sheer nourishment for day and night and ultra-flattering shades.

Indulge in a spa-worthy skincare ritual at home. Whether purifying, hydrating, exfoliating, or firming, these pampering treatments reveal soft, supple skin.

Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15: A sheer rosy tint that moisturizes, smoothes, and protects the lips. 

A good quality brush set is always a great gift idea.  I am loving this one this season:

Treat your loved one with a splurge-worthy hair tool:
