It is time to think about holiday gifts once again, and we found some spa gifts and stocking stuffers that are perfect for men and women on your list. Why not get an early start so you can actually enjoy the holidays this year?
Fizz & Bubble has the most delectable bath treats, that make you want to take a bite out of them, but don’t. It’s hard to decide between the Candy Cane and Gingerbread Milkshakes, Holiday Truffle Set or Cupcake Bath Fizzies in Peppermint, Mocha and Sugar Plum. As if the looks of these bath gifts are not enough, they all contain blends of Aloe Vera, and oils of Coconut, Grapeseed, Sweet Almond, Olive, Avocado, Sunflower and Jojoba. Just dig in. http://www.ulta.com.
Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter is formulated with natural Japanese Indigo, a botanical that is known for its soothing and healing properties. This thick and rich body butter has a natural blue hue from the Japanese Indigo that vanishes once it is applied to the skin. The gorgeous deep purple jar comes in decorative purple and blue box that shows the front of the jar. http://www.tatcha.com.
The Art of Shaving Lexington Power Gift Set is a great addition to any man’s shaving routine, and is also great for travel. It comes with a travel bag and the Lexington Collection 5 Blade Power Razor, Shaving Brush, Unscented Pre-Shave Oil, Unscented Shaving Cream and Unscented After–Shave Balm. http://www.theartofshaving.com.
Oojra essential oil diffusers make a great holiday gift, and there are several heavenly scents to choose from. My favorite is the Laos White Tea And Ginger. The diffusers come in beautiful black and gold boxes that look like gifts by just adding a ribbon. http://www.oojra.com.
Clarins has an absolutely intoxicating scented candle for the holidays. The Limited Edition Clarins Tonic Scented Candle comes in a gorgeous box, and the gold candleholder is even more beautiful. Designed to dress up any home for the holidays and beyond, it makes a perfect hostess gift. You may want to pick up one for yourself too. http://www.clarinsusa.com.
Give the gift of hair removal with a series of treatments at Romeo & Juliette Laser Hair Removal, the experts in laser hair removal. I absolutely love the ambience and expertise they provide. Just step off the elevator right into a hair free world. For me it was like heaven on earth to leave without hair on my upper lip. I noticed a difference in growth after just the first session. Romeo & Juliette has a variety of laser options that are safe for darker complexions. 5 East 57th Street, New York, NY 10022, 212-750-2000. http://www.romeojuliettelaserhairremoval.com.
The Art Naturals Essential Oil Diffuser is already on my holiday gift list. It is so easy to use and creates a fine mist of any essential oil you desire. Just fill with water and add 3-5 drops of essential oil, place the cap on the diffuser, and turn the power on. It makes a wonderful gift for anyone on your list who needs relief from stress, nasal and chest congestion or just loves to relax. Add the Art Naturals Top 8 Essential Oils Collection so the diffuser is ready to go. http://www.artnaturals.com.
The Sio Skin Pad is an overnight wrinkle smoother for the décolleté, and is nothing short of magic. Made with medical grade silicone that hydrates and helps the skin to produce collagen. It is so easy to just stick on the skin pad at night and wake up with a smoother, more youthful décolleté. I noticed results after just one night of wearing the pad. http://www.siobeauty.com.
The Earth Therapeutics Eyebrow Grooming Set has all the tools you need to keep eyebrows in check. This set includes an eyebrow shaver, tweezers, eyebrow scissors and an eyebrow/eyelash groomer. It is a fantastic travel set to take with you on trips or just in your handbag to make sure your eyebrows are always on fleek. http://www.earththerapeutics.net.
The TheraBand Foot Roller is what everyone needs to soothe tired feet during the holidays. This foam roller is only 1.5 inches in diameter and easily transported anywhere. It can even be chilled or frozen to help reduce inflammation or pain. http://www.performancehealth.com.
Somersets shaving oils for men and women are an ingenius invention that eliminates the need for bulky shaving creams and gels. All you do is squeeze a few drops of the oil and slather on to your legs. Honestly, my legs never felt smoother. One little bottle actually gives you 90 shaves. Pretty cool, and economical as well. http://www.Target.com.
The SurvivorEyes Brow Style & Stencil Kits were created by breast cancer survivor, Lisa Doble, and are designed to help women who lose their hair after undergoing cancer treatment. The kits are also beneficial to any woman with eyebrow hair loss and thinning. The Brow Style Kit comes with cosmetics to fill in brows, and the Stencil Kit comes with an applicator bush and stencils. The kits are small, and the stencils come in a variety of ten shapes so you can choose the best one for your face. It’s a confidence booster for anyone who wants more defined eyebrows. http://www.survivoreyes.com.
