It’s the holidays and sometimes you gotta splurge. Whether it’s for yourself, a coworker or dear friend, here’s a round up of some of my favorite luxe gifts that make me feel like a million bucks! Also head to glamour.com to see some of my other holiday beauty picks!
Venus et Fleur
These flower arrangements are magic. Beautifully packaged roses in every color that are real and they last a year! I told you they were magic. I have the four rose style from Saks but they have loads of different arrangements on their site. And they smell like a fresh cut bouquet! I’ve had mine for two months and they still smell as beautiful as the day I got them. No watering or maintenance needed. So good!
Thompson Ferrier Candle
I’m big on candles (you should see my collection), Thompson Ferrier candles go a step beyond! They are works of art and so edgy, I love them all!!!!! But if I had to choose the elephant, skulls, pineapple, and buddha heads are my favorites! That’s actually not true, every time I’m on their site I have new ones I’m lusting over. You can check them out at Bloomingdale’s, Barneys and Shopbop, but I also saw certain styles discounted on gilt.
SpaceNK Holiday Heroes Best of Space NK
This is a treat! It’s no secret we LOVE the assortment of beauty products at SpaceNK. This holiday they compiled their Best Of products which includes the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray (2.2oz), By Terry Baume de Rose (0.35oz), Eve Lom Cleanser (1.7oz), Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment (0.5 oz), Smith & Cult Shattered Souls Nail Lacquer (0.5 fl.oz) Lipstick Queen Frog Prince Lipstick (0.12 oz) and Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara (0.18oz) wrapped in a SpaceNK Gold Cosmetic bag for $99 ($230 value)! So many of my favorite products at a stellar deal.
PS as of Monday December 25th SpaceNK will be offering a post-holiday sale of up to 50% off!
Harry’s The Give Deluxe Set
We needed something for the guys! They can be so tough to shop for, but fortunately Harry’s has made gift giving so simple. For $35 they have the cutest shave kit, packaged in a bag and delivered in the cutest box and is filled with a razor, razor stand, Shave Gel and Post-Shave Balm. It’s the perfect gift for any guy (unless he’s Santa) that’s on your list!
They also have a number of other shave products and sets (this one is only $20!) that are highly giftable.
Creed Silver Mountain Water, $425
Is there really anything more luxe then a Creed fragrance for the holiday? While I’m generally an Aventus girl, for the holidays I switched it up the their Silver Mountain Water fragrance. This best-selling modern scent is perfectly captured from its snowy white bottle to it’s infamously rich and sweet fragrance.
PS: You can add personalized engraving on Creed’s website for the perfect holiday gift. I’m keeping my initial charm forever!
Molton Brown Everything
I’m really into their Russian Leather Candle (available in two candle sizes, they also have an Eau de Toilette version), it’s a woody tobacco, warm scent that I can’t wait for my apartment to smell like. They also have some amazing holiday gifts (check them out HERE).
As far as hostess or office gifts you literally can never go grown with their candles, liquid hand soaps and body washes. Also if you’re in NYC stop by the Lotte New York Palace! Molton Brown has a lifesize advent calendar (I actually want that for Christmas!) and are giving away a complimentary Molton Brown gift in the lobby from 5:30-7:30pm until Christmas Eve. When I was there I got a full size fragrance!
Tom Ford Soleil Eye and Cheek Palette
It may seem a little personal to buy someone makeup. Unless it’s Tom Ford. Then whether it’s their iconic Black Orchid fragrance or this eye and cheek palette you just want to marvel at it’s beauty. The packaging is exceptional, it looks like a mini-clutch, their formulas are perfection, and this palette is a winner for the holidays. It features four eyeshadow shades, a highlight and blush. If their just a cheek person, go straight for the Tom Ford Sheer Cheek Duos, they’re so pretty!!!!!!
JBL headphones have been a big hit around the office. They have a number of different styles but our favorites their wireless headphones specifically the JBL E55BT Quincy Edition ($199) and Everest Elite 750 NC ($299.95). The Quincy Edition is named after and created in collaboration with legendary GRAMMY® winner Quincy Jones. Designed with ergonomic materials, rich metallic finishes it’s available in colors Dusty Rose and Space Grey. Finished with a stylish leather headband the set is very comfortable and packs a 20-hours of battery life.
The Everest Elite 750 NC is part of their Everest 2.0 Series and combines cutting-edge technology for an unparalleled listening experience. Equipped with the latest Adaptive Noise-Cancelling (ANC) technology you can adjust the level of unwanted (or wanted) background noise. It also features JBL’s TruNote™ Auto Sound Calibration technology that adjusts sound based on the user’s ear anatomy to deliver the best possible listening experience. The series is available in gunmetal, mountain silver and steel blue.
Natura Brasil Acai Set
For a great hostess gift, Natura Brasil is an amazing hair and skin brand that’s committed to sustainability and well-being. They work directly with over 30 local communities in the Amazon, including more than 300 families to help develop and benefit the forest. For the holidays they have an amazing assortment of affordable sets including the Acai set ($32.50) which includes their bestselling Acai exfoliating soap and Acai hand cream wrapped in a raffia pouch. The bag is handmade by the Artesanato do Trancado Tupinamba, a Copartt cooperative in Bahia, Brazil. They also have some sets in their hand-made baskets which I’m lusting after.
