Holiday Gift Guide Most Wanted Gifts 2013

Only ten days until Christmas! If you’re like me, you haven’t yet started your Christmas shopping and the hair-pulling due to the stress of the holidays has commenced. I’ve compiled 10 gifts that will make you look like you thought long and hard (and shopped early!) for your loved ones. You’re welcome.

  1. Osmia Organics Sunset Body Oil ($30 to $85). You knew this was gonna be on here. My little 2oz bottle of Sunset Body Oil is well loved, so I know your gift receiver would be so happy to unwrap this bottle of joy.
  2. Diptyque Candles, Set of 10 ($145). Ahhh Diptyque. My husband will never understand why I spend $80 on a regular sized candle. For those who have been wanting to splurge on these infamous scented candles, this set of 10 votives is for you. Contains: Thé, Cannelle, Roses, Jasmin, Baies, Tubereuse, Figuier, Feu de Bois, Ambre, Patchouli.
  3. Benefit Groovy Kind-a Love ($36). This complete makeup set will take you from day to night with some of Benefit’s best-selling products. Can’t go wrong with this one! Great for gifting to a makeup newbie. Contains deluxe sizes of the POREfessional, They’re Real! Mascara, Benetint, Dandelion & Gimme Fever, and a 4-eyeshadow palette.
  4. Jo Malone Cologne Collection ($100). Jo Malone is quickly becoming one of my favourite brands for fragrances. They are made to layer to create a custom scent for you. This set will make a wonderful gift for someone who deserves a bit of spoiling. 🙂 Contains 9ml colognes of Lime Basil & Mandarin, English Pear & Freesia, Blackberry & Bay, Peony & Blush Suede and Amber & Lavender.
  5. Pure + simple Be Fresh Anti-Aging Skincare Kit ($62). This isn’t a gift round up without a gift from my skincare go-to, Pure + simple. This anti-aging kit is not just for mature skin, but is also for those who are craving a bit more hydration during the colder seasons (um, me!). Great value for an awesome sampler of some of their most popular products. Contains: Rose Hydrosol, Collagen Elastin Plus, Cellular Repair Face Cream, Rejuvenating Rosehip Mask.
  6. Bliss Let It ‘Glow’ ($95). Bliss is well-known for their skin invigorating triple oxygen facials, and this set is truly a Bliss facial in a box.

  7. LUSH Mr. Frosty ($23.95). Okay guys… get ready for the cutest family of LUSH gift sets. Aren’t these the perfect stocking stuffers? Starting with Mr. Frosty, who is spicy and celebratory, with scents of cinnamon and champagne. Cheers! Contains: Bombardino Bath Bomb, Cinders Bath Bomb, Golden Wonder Bath Bomb.
  8. LUSH Mrs. Frosty ($23.95). The sweeter half of Mr. Frosty, the Mrs. smells of blackcurrant, lavender and ylang ylang. Gift this to a busy mom who truly deserves a soaking in the tub (at least for an hour!). Contains: The Comforter bubble bar, Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb, Butterball Bath Bomb.
  9. LUSH Baby Frosty ($17.95). Waaaahhhh so cute! Want a calming or festive bath? Why not have both! Contains: Butterball Bath Bomb, Father Christmas Bath Bomb.

  • What?? I thought I already commented on this LOL am I just going insane? (probably, just coming off of finals and all…) Love the gift guide! The Sunset oil is divine, I just want to bathe in it all the time. And I agree that Jo Malone does great fragrances. That set is calling my name but I shall resist 😉

    • Thank you for commenting, MM! LOL it is kinda quiet around here lately. I need to get the bigger bottle ASAP, as I only have 1/3 left of the small bottle of Sunset and I will cry if it runs out and I don’t have a backup. Holy run-on sentence. Whatevs.

      • 😀 no problem Geekz. Hope you had a very Merry Christmas! And oh god, I dread the day I run out of my little sample vial of Sunset because then I will inevitably want to buy out the entire store…
