1. bareMinerals Greatest Performers ($22, but a $57 value!)
Believe me when I say, bareMinerals truly has the best holiday offerings from any beauty brand around, so it was hard for me to choose one of my favs, but...Greatest Performers is only $22 and includes SIX of the brand's top attractions. Prime Time Foundation Primer...Mineral Veil Finishing Powder...READY eyeshadow 2.0 The High Society (Waltz + Debutante)...Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara in Intense Black...Beauty Blush...Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Rebel. Whew. This has everything, so is really the perfect go-to gift for any beauty gal!
2. COACH Poppy Wildflower ($65)
Every year there's an "it" fragrance and judging by the more than 500 "loves" this one got on Sephora's site, I'd say this one is a huge hit. And what a gorgeous bottle! Inspired by the playful COACH Poppy, Wildflower is the spirited and untamed sister. This scent is very intriguing with delicate notes of orange flower and muguet and a hint of musk at its base. Throw in patchouli, iris and vanilla and it makes for a truly amazing fragrance like no other! What a great gift for the fragrance lover.
3. Ruby + Ed Whiskers Slippers ($60)
I mean, really. Who can resist these faux fur kitty slippers from Ruby & Ed? Metallic whiskers and ears with a jewel nose, these are the cutest (softest!) slippers around. It's the perfect (coziest) gift for anyone, really. (P.S. They run slightly large, so size down if you're in between sizes!)
4. Hape Jungle Buddies Paint & Play ($15.99)
This eco-friendly brand is a fav around our house, and if you have a budding artist who is 4+, he or she will love this paint set that includes 12 paints, plus stickers, so they can paint the wooden jungle animals. This is just too, too cute - and what a great way to practice those art skills!
5. Soft as a Baby Block Set (sale, $39)
From The Land of Nod, these soft baby blocks are the sweetest things. The blocks include letters, numbers and fun patterns with a rattle inside each of them. They're not only practical, they're so, so pretty! (and can't beat a sale...)
6. Artist's Surplus Art Jar ($29)
Also from The Land of Nod, this is basically a huge plastic jar full of all kinds of goodies...googly eyes, glue pens, construction paper, beads and on and on. There are so many fun things in this to let your kiddo's imagine run wild! Lots and lots of future projects here and what a great way to stay busy inside over these next few cold months!
