HOLIDAY: Giftybox.com

Addicted to beauty? Well, just you wait. You just might find yourself addicted to Giftybox.com too…

You choose a theme, while your recipient gets to choose the activity. Giving an experience is extremely personal, not to mention, if you are looking for a gift for “the person who has it all,” giving an adventure or a class or a winery tour might just be the best way to go.

How it works:

   * As a buyer, you pick the theme you want to give based on whatever suits the personality of the recipient: winery tour/tasting, spa experience, adventure (e.g. scuba diving, scenic flights, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, 4×4 tours, etc.), classes (dance, martial arts, cooking, etc.)

   * Once you pick a theme, the gift recipient receives a guidebook of all the options in the theme (beautifully packaged) so that he/she can choose the specific activity (based on preferences and location)


It may seem as if this is an expensive gift, but in fact, the prices range from $34.99 to $129.

HOLIDAY: Aveda 100% Comfort

Looking for a gift for a ‘stressed coworker’? Yep, that’s exactly a category on the Aveda Gift giving website. You don’t believe me? Go look!

See? Left sidebar, under lifestyle…..

How about a stressed anyone?

Browsing through, I would pick this one:

100% Comfort

ShampureTM Shampoo
1.7 fl oz/50 ml
ShampureTM Conditioner
1.7 fl oz/50 ml
Hand ReliefTM
1.4 fl oz/40 ml
Replenishing Body Moisturizer
1.4 fl oz/40 ml
Lip Saver

Gift sets come prewrapped—ready for giving.

First of all, you just can’t go wrong with the Aveda Shampure scent.. to die for… plus they are all travel sizes, and so it’s a great way to have someone try it out… without an overdose of a size on something that just may not be it for them.
Elke’s tip? Put a bit of Shampure Shampoo in your bath… lather and the scent will woo you over..
yep. I can see why they called it 100% Comfort…

HOLIDAY: ADesign Brushes

Hey, you.

Over there.

Gotta get a holiday present for a makeup artist friend?

Well here ya go.

The Makeup Artist’s dream….
From ADesign Brushes (which are amazing by the way…) this little mini set is everything a makeup dreams about. Why? It’s small, compact, and the brushes WORK. It’s great to take on set, to use for touch ups. So you don’t have to take the whole dang brush collection with you (and yes, they can be quite big at times…) but this little thing is genius.
Heck, I want one for myself. Forget work!
Includes 6 essential mini handle brushes with full size brush heads.

  • Powder
  • Foundation
  • Baby Buki
  • Shadow
  • Angled Liner
  • Brow brush.
