Holiday Gift Guide for Her 2011

As we head into the Christmas season, i'd like to share a few of my top gift choices for females.  This list will include both beauty and non beauty related items, and includes both high end gifts and gifts for the person on a budget, and I made sure to add a lot of different options. So, let's get started...


Harajuku Lovers Jingle G
This perfume retails for $25 US, and is perfect for the holidays! This is a sweet, warm, musky, very cozy scent that any girl would love!   This perfume has a hook in the hat, which enables it to become a christmas tree ornament as well, which is pretty cool.  This can be purchased at Sephora.

Sephora by OPI two piece full-size nail polish set 
This retails for $10 US.  For $10 you get 2 full sized nail lacquer's in Silver blasted, and 'just a little dangerous' which is a deep purple with fine glitter.  If the person you're looking to buy for loves nail polish, this is perfect for them!  It's a high end product for a low end price, what could be better?  This can be purchased at Sephora.
Sephora Collection Makeup Studio Blockbuster
This retails for $49.50 US, and I actually got this for my 11 year old sister who's just starting to get into makeup.  I already have a post about this, so i'll link it here.  Basically, this is a little more of a higher end gift and is perfect for someone who's looking to expand their makeup collection, or is just getting into makeup.  This can be purchased at Sephora.
Mistle-Toes Shea infused Lounge Socks 
These retail for $7.50 each, or $9.50 for the knee socks.  These come in a bunch of really fun different designs and are super soft and fuzzy.  These are scented, and just smell like fresh laundry to me, and are infused with Shea butter to keep your feet moisturized.  The scent lasts for 8-10 washes, and the Shea butter lasts for up to 25 washes.  You can also purchase Shea-infused gloves, and this can be purchased at bath and body works. 



Lush Bath Bombs/Bubble Bars/Bath Melts
I'm not going to recommend specific products, because that kind of depends on the person you're buying for's taste.  Lush's holiday products are absolutely adorable, and includes everything from a melting snow man bath melt to an "Abombinaball" bath bomb.  Prices range from $2.00-$50.00 CND depending on what you're purchasing.  Lush also has Holiday gift sets for teachers, friends, Secret Santa exchanges, and for loved ones.
Candles
Always a classic, candles are a great gift for the person on a budget!  Bath and Body Works sells 14.5 oz filled candles for $19.95 in a range of different delectable scents, some of my personal favourites are cranberry woods, apple crumble, warm vanilla sugar, and homemade cookies!  BBW also sells a range of different holiday inspired candle sleeves, pricing varies but all are between $4-20 US. 
 
Sephora Favorites Lash Stash
This mascara sampler set retails for $45 US, and contains 10 of Sephora's most popular mascaras, and a 1 oz Clinique eye makeup remover.  8 mascaras are sample sized, while 2 of them are full sized!  If the person you're buying for loves mascara, this is for her! This can be purchased at Sephora.
Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip 
This six piece lip kit retails for $25, and is perfect for the girl who is all about lip products!  It contains lip stains, glosses, and lip sticks from brands including Tarte, Lancome, Smashbox and Benefit.  This set can be purchased at Sephora. 

Juicy Couture Striped Scarf
For the fashionista, this Juicy Couture scarf currently retails for $18, which is crazy considering the fact that it's Juicy Couture!  This can be wrapped around your hair, or your bag, and is pink, black and white...very chic!  Get this while you still can!  This can be purchased at Juicy Couture.  

Guess One Love Charity Bracelet
This retails for $30 US,and again, I wrote a post about it so i'll link that here.  Basically, $20 of every bracelet sold goes to help charity, it's a beautiful, exclusive bracelet for a great cause!  Can be purchased at Guess.   
Juicy Couture Starter Charm Bracelet 
This retails for $42 US.  "14-karat yellow gold plated brass open-link chain
Toggle clasp with signature "J" and heart charms".  Honestly, i think that any piece of jewelry is the perfect holiday gift for a girl, because it makes her feel special.  I love the juicy couture charm bracelet personally, I think it's beautiful and it comes in a range of different colors.   If the girl you're shopping for already has a charm bracelet, getting her a charm or two is a great idea! 


Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System
This is definitely more of an extravagant gift, that I personally would love to receive for Christmas.  The clarisonic Mia retails for $119 and comes in a variety of different colors and patterns.  Basically, you apply your face cleanser, and turn the Clarisonic Mia on and rub it around your face in circular motions, and it removes any dirt and oil, and excess makeup.  So, this gift is definitely a great option for someone who is really into skin care, or looking to start taking better care of their skin. This can be purchased at Sephora.

  2. That seriously sucks, Celeste! I believe www.sephora.fr DOES ship to the UK, so you can google sephora.fr and google translate it to english if you don't understand French. Sadly, Sephora.fr doesn't carry the lip, mascara, or nail varnish sets. But they do have the blockbuster palette http://www.sephora.fr/Maquillage/Palettes-Coffrets/Multi-usages/Palette-Studio-Maquillage/P673002

    I hope this helped!
