Give the Gift of Beauty

Ada Polla Overall, my general guiding principle for gift giving is to give gifts I would love to receive but would never purchase for myself. That holds true with gifts of beauty. Indeed, while some skin care products such as moisturizers are a very intimate purchase, yet do not necessarily make the most adequate gifts, many beauty products do. Here are some of the beauty gifts on my list this year.

To my girlfriend Whitney who loves to take baths, I will give Molton Brown Relaxing Yuan Zhi Moisture Bath & Shower gel. It is my favorite of their collection, purple, and smells delicious.

To my girlfriend Emily who loves her mani-pedis, I will give Alchimie Forever 532nm Antioxidant Relief for Hands and Feet. This balm, packed with shea butter and jojoba, nourishes, softens calluses and cuticles, alleviates pain and swelling, and makes any mani-pedi last longer.

To my girlfriend Stephanie who never goes out of the house without wearing lipstick, I will give the Stila Lip Glaze The Sweet Six kit. Beautiful sheer colors in cute packaging, one for every mood!

And to my friend Tommy, I will give Alchimie Forever’s best-selling Nd:YAG Antioxidant Defense Gel For Men. Ideal to calm the skin after shaving, this oil-free gel is ideal for any man who shaves, metro or not.

Choosing thoughtful, personal gifts for family and friends is one of the pleasures of the holiday season. And the gift of beauty is always the right size.
