Expert advice to finding the perfect Christmas giftFinding a great Christmas gift can be tricky, and shoppers are running out of time to locate the perfect present. Luckily, etiquette expert Anna Post recently shared some gift-giving tips with StyleList.com.

According to Post, bath and body gift sets are functional (everyone must bathe!), pretty and sure to be appreciated by all – who doesn't love being pampered? But remember to choose items that have a personalized touch.

"If friends recently traveled to Italy, make them a gift basket full of Italian gourmet treats and pampering products such as olive body butter. Include a personal note such as, 'I hope this gift takes you back to Italy!'" Post suggested to the news source.

Caswell-Massey Sandalwood Worldly Pleasures Collection is a wonderful treat for gals who adore the far east, while those with a sweet tooth may prefer Caswell-Massey Classic Vanilla Orchid Gift Set.

If you choose to put together your own collection of goodies, Post recommends selecting three products, such as hand lotion, lip balm and a candle. You can opt for items that boast the same scent, such as L'Occitaine Cherry Blossom products, or different treats that appeal to the recipient depending upon her mood – a peppermint body wash for invigoration, lavender bath salts for relaxation and and vanilla body lotion to indulge her.

Shave kits and fragrance sets – a great gift for him

Shave kits and fragrance sets - a great gift for himShopping for a new beau can be tricky – you haven't been together long enough to give an overly intimate gift, but you want the present to express how much you care about him. Instead of picking up a sweater (too impersonal) or a fancy gold watch (too expensive for the beginning of a relationship!), opt for a gift set filled with products he'll appreciate and enjoy.

If your man hates his 5 o'clock shadow, a shave kit is a great idea. He'll get a closer shave and his face will always be kissably smooth. The eShave Ultimate Shaving Set includes fantastic products – pre-shave oil, shaving cream and aftershave – as well as the right tools, such as a 3-blade razor and a shaving brush.

For a present that's a bit more intimate, why not give your guy a fragrance set? A collection of deliciously scented items is sure to be a hit. Most sets include a few different products like cologne, body wash and aftershave, that boast a single scent, such as the Calvin Klein Eternity For Men Gift Set. But there are also collections ideal for men with varied tastes.

The Giorgio Armani Your Scent Your Style Gift Set contains three of the brand's most popular fragrances, giving guys different scents to wear depending on their preference.

What a Teenage Girl Wants?

       
Thursday, December 14th, 2006

Teenagers can be hard to shop for—especially teenage girls. There’s no telling what’s “hot” nowadays so, until you’re given a specific list, it can be near impossible to grab something “cool”.

Don’t even ponder the thought of picking out clothes, trends change in a sec these days and it’s more likely that your gift will be found under the bed than on the girl.

Want some safe gift selections? Here are some great ideas: You can never go wrong with gift certificates. Take note of “hot” stores and buy a gift card. If you’re unsure about which stores she likes, buy a mall gift certificate that she can use in any shop. Movie and restaurant gift certificates always make great gifts.

Bath and body products are always wanted. Try some good-smelling body washes or scrubs, or even some light and delicate facial products.

How about a makeover? Ask a professional makeup artist at any cosmetic counter to show her how to get just the right look! She’ll also learn how to apply makeup and how imperative skin care is.

Men Need Pampering Too!!!

Who ever said that men don’t like to be pampered? Here’s a thought, when you’re searching for the perfect gift for the perfect man in your life you don’t have to walk into the sporting goods aisle. Men can enjoy things instead of a round of golf or NFL Sunday. Just as us ladies, a man will need to take care and upkeep his personal hygiene. A man is less likely to spend the time or the money buying indulgent beauty products that a woman would. And for this reason, male beauty products make phenomenal gifts.

Here are some great gift ideas for a special man: “A nice shaving kit with a sensitive lotion and aftershave, Indulgent body scrubs and cleansers, A magnificent facial cleanser, toner, and moisturizer, A total travel kit, A massage,A gift certificate to a great salon“.

Just because he may not be caught dead buying it for himself doesn’t mean that he won’t love that pampering! If you live with him and he doesn’t desire pampering gifts, try putting what you want him to smell like in the shower and guarantee he’ll use it, instead of using yours!
