-Estee Lauder Red Sea Face Powder compact. Having received one of these a few years back as a gift, I can tell you it's a good one . There are many nice ones, some only at certain stores, some wide release. This one is at all counters. If you buy one, they'll love it. $ 45.00

-L'Occitane Hand Lotion Set- We all need lots of hand lotion. Why not treat someone to one of the nicest out there. I always feel that, if it comes from L'Occitane, then it's a good gift. Set incl. Rose, HoneyLemon & Cherry Blossom. New and LE $ 25.00

-Lucy B Lemon Myrtle Lip Balm- Lip Balms are always needed. I give lots out each year. This one has a smell of lemonade and isn't one she'll have seen everywhere else. $ 18.00.

-Aveda Ritual of Relief Hand Care Set- Aveda has put together some lovely gift sets in many price points. a favorites is the hand & foot care set. I have this hand lotion and it is easily one of the best, if not the best. I have ever used. Creamy, long lasting and really moisturizing. Last thru hand washing too. Set incl. full size each hand lotion and foot loiton, and travel size of each.

A neat part-Aveda has purchased Lokta paper handmade in Nepal for the super pretty, needs no wrapping, packaging of the gift collection.

This helps employ 1,282 women and men, preserve 90,000 acres of Himalayan forest and send the children of 500 families to school. Nice. $ 40.00
