When you're trying to come up with that perfect gift for a special person in your life, think hard about what will make your gift attractive. Ultimately, the "winner" will be something that improves the life of the recipient, and one of the best ways to guarantee this is to give a pampering gift. Think about it... who doesn't want to be pampered?
However, giving any gift related to beauty needs to be handled sensitively. Imagine if you received a beautiful, expensive, opulent jar of cream to get rid of your crows feet. Would you honestly be 100% thrilled with the giver?
The key to giving successful beauty gifts is to give things that make people feel better about their health and beauty without making them wonder if you have been keeping tabs on the deterioration of their looks.
With this delicate balance in mind, I've crafted a wonderful gift list that contains items for every budget and both genders. These suggestions are designed to make everyone on your "nice" list feel like they have just landed in the lap of luxury over and over again.
Masada Bath Salts: Tea Tree & Peppermint Dead Sea Minerals - Prepare for those New Year's blowouts with 100% natural Dead Sea Mineral Salts. These luxurious bath salts not only smooth and revitalize skin with a minty, strengthening mixture of peppermint and tea tree oil, but they also refresh fatigued muscles, promote energy and concentration and are even recommended by physicians. These bath salts are top of the line and spa-quality, and you don't have to mention that they also relieve (temporarily) arthritis, psoriasis, rheumatism, eczema and even lower back pain.
Perhaps best of all, they actually cure overindulgence because Dead Sea minerals are naturally potent detoxifiers. When you give this gift you know your friend will be feeling fabulous both the night before and the day after thanks to your thoughtfulness. Also, they come in a huge jar that will last for months so your friend can enjoy your gift over and over again.
Philosophy Candy Cane Lane Set - This festive box of delightful treats for each of the five senses is made by Philosophy and is based around the cool, crisp, invigorating scent of the everyone's favorite, ubiquitous seasonal candy - the candy cane.
The set contains foaming bubble bath, shower gel, body lotion and "high gloss, high flavor" lip shine. Clean yourself up, wake yourself up and glam yourself up all with one wonderful holiday greetings set. These products are known for their quality and universal beauty appeal. They even come in a number of seasonal "flavors" like Peppermint Bark and Melting Marshmallow for you and your friends to enjoy.
Braun Series 5-550CC Shaver System: Special Holiday Edition - This fully adaptable, triple action cutting system is designed specifically for the most comfortable, thorough, smooth shave imaginable. The "triple action cutting system" gets skin smooth and silky, while the razor automatically cleans, charges and lubricates itself so that you basically get a brand new razor each morning when you remove it from its charger.
Also, if you forget to charge it, it takes only five minutes to rev this razor up. Help any man condition and protect his skin all while getting the best shave he's ever had by giving him the 550CC Shaver System Holiday Edition for Christmas.
100% Pure Therapeutic Grade Basic Sample Essential Oil Gift Set - Not everyone manages to stay calm throughout the holidays, and some people even dread them because of the added stress that they bring to our lives. Help out your favorite, stressed-out friend with some soothing, effective aromatherapy oils guaranteed to lighten the load on their minds and brighten their homes as well.
The Top Six collection from Eden's Garden includes eucalyptus, lavender, lemongrass, peppermint, sweet orange and tea tree oils nestled in a gorgeous, designer box. Whether your friend needs extra energy, a clear mind or a calm and level head for the holiday season, these essential oils will do the trick all while adding a lovely, spa-quality, soothing aspect to any decor.
Since all of Eden's Garden products are 100% pure therapeutic grade, you're essentially giving your friend the gift of six individual spa treatments in their own home. Many use these oils in lotions, for massage and even in cleaning products to give the entire home a positive atmosphere.
Whether your friend has enjoyed aromatherapy for years or needs to experience the benefits for the first time, they will love the way that they feel when they use your thoughtful gift again and again.
Eminence Organic Skincare. Sugar Plum Whip Moisturizer - There is no better vision of sugar plums to dance in your head than this highly effective, opulent, whipped moisturizer with a hint of sweet, holiday zing that will last for months after the season ends.
Plum extracts and evening primrose oil provide intense hydration while fighting signs of aging, and this nutritious fruit whip is entirely organic, making it ideal for normal, dry and sensitive skin types. This whip is not only highly effective as a protective moisturizer, but it can be used as a massage cream when slightly diluted with water as well.
Treat your friends to a soothing experience that will let them spoil themselves and their skin throughout the dry, cold winter months with this popular moisturizer and exclusive brand.
If you're having trouble making your holiday list this year, then these products should help you fill in the gaps on your gift giving list with thoughtful, useful presents that will make your friends and loved ones feel good for months after the wrapping paper has been crumpled and thrown away and the tree has been dragged down to the curb.
Give the gift of a truly enjoyable present this year - one that you know will be treasured right down to the last drop of essential oil, smudge of moisture whip or bubble of bubble bath. By giving these thoughtful health and beauty gifts this year, you can be certain that you will pass the gift-giving test with flying colors.
