Holiday Gift Guide part 1

I have always wanted to do a holiday gift guide and now I can. I plan to try to cover all price ranges.

I like to think I am a great gift giver, not only do I love it, but I pay attention always to the things people point out as liking. I also am not afraid to ask someone what they would like for Christmas. It's a sure way of getting them something they really want.

So some guidelines- don't be afraid to ask what someone would like, and don't be afraid to tell them that it's cool if it isn't what they want to return it. Enclose a gift receipt if you can. This way you need never know if they returned it. Hopefully you'll give a great gift, and lets face it, a gift of beauty almost always works, so you're in the right place.
Many times I also have helped people ( sometimes total strangers in a store) pick out something for someone else. I would love to be a personal shopper, so I am opening up the comments for you to state your gift challenges,and I will try and help. It doesn't have to be beauty/fashion related, but that would most in keeping with our theme.

On to the gift guide

When the Penhaligons catalog arrived , well I wanted lots of stuff from it, but also I immediately saw this shower gel set and thought what a great gift. You get six 50 ML shower gels including Lily of the valley and Lavandula. Penhaligons is great quality , and it comes in a nice gift box. $ 55.00.

Fresh Hesperides Gift Set. I have this , the price point is so good , and the scent is a citrus beauty. You get a lotion, soap, and an EDT. This is a perfect scent for anyone who loves citrus, but also for one who doesn't want something overpowering . $ 38.00

Everyone would love to get a gift in that iconic blue Tiffanys box. If your budget doesn't run to jewelry, Tiffany has two perfumes. Both are beautiful full florals. These used to be more widely available but now are just on the company website as far as I can tell, and in stores. They will wrap them in that blue box as well. Tiffany EDP 1.7 oz is 75.00, 3.4 oz 100.00 ( Pure Tiffany priced separately. )

Kiehls has released several holiday exclusive candle scents including Pear Tree Corner . Pear is a great year round scent, and through 11/26 use code FRIDAY to get 20% off. ( All the holiday scents also come in body gel and lotion)
