This season get the perfect gift for everyone on your list, from your mom to your best friend. Or maybe for some that are picky or have expensive taste. The options are endless but some brands are truly offering the best in luxury when it comes to product quality, options, presentation, performance… Go glam and go luxe! Here are some of my favorites that I would personally love to get as Christmas gift!
At Commodity, passionate artisans and accomplished entrepreneurs come together on equal ground to create and innovate premium lifestyle offerings. The result: fragrance, body and home experiences that give you room to express yourself and enhance the way you live. This holiday season Commodity is offering The Style Guide Fragrance Discovery for only 24$ . 9 of the most loved scent lets you discover the best from the brand, find your new signature scent or mix and match and layer different ones to create your unique creation.
Beside great discovery kits Commodity recently launched home candles as well as expanded their body line with offering Bath bars (who doesn’t love layering?). Bath bars make great gift for men, since often they do not like shower gels (like my husband). Commodity’s soapers enrich a neutral vegetable base with a proprietary blend of ingredients, including chia seed oil, pistachio butter, cupuacu butter and coconut oil. Blended together, they provide nourishing, moisturizing and soothing benefits while gently cleansing skin. I am so excited they are come in Orris and Tonka, since Orris is one of my favorite Commodity scents. I am so excited to see this brand expanding and I am hoping to see more products in their body line in the future.
L’occitane has mastered the gift of luxury. Their presentation is unmatched in my humble opinion. Year round they offer great gift sets but for holidays they truly have outdone themselves. Options range from 15$ to a couple of hundred of dollars and all the sets come beautifully packed and carefully picked so you can give the gift of luxury without breaking the bank. My favorites are new and limited edition Terre de Lumière Eau de Parfum. In its special Gold Edition, Terre de Lumière Eau de Parfum is more precious than ever. Haloed with rays of gold, this bottle would delight anyone who received it. Inspired by the Golden Hour, a unique moment in time right before the sun sets when the light embraces the sky. Perfect for the most beautiful time of the year, it makes the most beautiful gift. With zesty and aromatic top notes, this unique fragrance unexpectedly develops into delicate aromas of lavender, honey and almond from the South of France.
There are some L’occitane products I can not live without and one of them is their Almond shower oil. In this Delicious Almond body collection, you get the best selling Almond shower oil, Almond milk concentrate, Almond delicious hand cream, Almond delicious soap and Almond supple skin oil. This is the gift of pure indulgence and so perfect for keeping skin soft and silky smooth during winter.
For the makeup lover in your life give the gift of the most luxurious brushes on the market. Artis offers a variety of face, eye and lip brushes and for the holidays they are offering some really nice gift sets that are a great value. Typically you will never find these brushes on sale! Besides being beautiful Artis brushes offer remarkable results. Check out their holiday bundles here https://www.artisbrush.com/#/holiday-bundles-2017/

Sometimes when gifting others you can actually be gifting yourself too. Buy a fragrance for a man in your life that you can share!

I have tried a couple of Amore Pacific products in the past and my absolute favorite is Treatment Enzyme Peel- A water activated exfoliator that dissolves dead surface skin cells without harsh abrasiveness for an instantly brighter skin. This thing is magical!! The difference it made in how my skin looked was visible after only one use. It is my must have since then and I always try to incorporate it into my skincare regimen no matter what other products I am using or testing. I am so glad to see Amore Pacific is offering gorgeous sets for the holiday season and here are the two I really liked – one offers their newest Essential Creme fluid and the other has 12 mini products – what a perfect introduction to the brand!

Two words I like to use to describe Clarisonic – life changing. If you are beauty addict like me you will know what I mean. Who needs Clarisonic? EVERYONE. Men, women, those who use a lot of makeup, those who don’t, those who want to take the best care of their skin… It simply does what it promises. It is a long-term investment in your skin. I started using Clarisonic 7 years ago and never looked back. I started with Mia, then got Mia 2 and my favorite Mia fit. I talked about Sonic foundation brush HERE . That is another gem from Clarisonic and I am so happy to see Clarisonic enter the makeup game. In their Holiday shop, they are offering super cute Stocking stuffer combos of cleansing brush and foundation brush – check it out HERE
I also love that they partnered up with Tatcha, Kiehls, It cosmetics, Boscia … to offer started skincare gift sets. You can see more HERE .
