Spa

By Stephanie Ila Silver-Silberstein

She took care of you when you were sick, attended every ballet recital and she’ll baby-sit your children free of charge. She’s your best friend in the world, and she gives you unconditional love (and only a smidgeon of guilt, right?). How can you possibly express your gratitude? The gift of spa is a good start.

Valsey & Me Personalized Soaps

Inside this handcrafted paper-mache treasure chest are 40 individual soap chips (each measuring 2″ x 1″ by 1/8 ” thick, perfect for single use). With its elegant presentation and personalized messages, The Valsey & Me Personalized Soap Box is hands down one of the most perfect housewarming/hostess gifts ever! Each chip is hand cut, made using only the finest natural ingredients and comes in one of 5 scents. Each piece of soap is individually hand wrapped and then personalized with your name or other phrase of your choice. These soaps are so pretty, you won’t want anyone to actually use them! But don’t fret; you can always get a refill! Visit http://www.valseyandme.com.

Deep Sea Cosmetics

http://www.deepseacosmetics.com

My mom and I discovered Deep Sea Cosmetics at an upscale mall in Miami. The saleswoman convinced my mom to let her try the nail system out on her and as if starring in an infomercial, my mom instantly became a believer. It’s been almost a month and her polish-free nails are still shiny after spending only a few minutes with their incredible nail buffer at the mall. This relatively inexpensive (when you consider adding up those frequent manicures) and easy to use nail kit will have you believing too. Trust me. Visit http://www.deepseacosmetics.com for this and other products rich in Dead Sea minerals.
