The holiday season is finally here! I love to give gifts and bring a little festive sparkle to all your friends and family. If your shopping list is anything like mine, it’s probably six feet long with no end in sight. So today, I have the perfect pile of presents to place under your friend’s tree or stuff their adorable stockings with.
When it comes to gift giving, I’m super sentimental (no surprises there!). Every item I gift it is something I know my friends and family will love, and if they’re into beauty – I love to group multiple items together to make it extra special for them. If you’re a little late to the gift-buying game, it’s time to visit the Shoppers Drug Mart beautyBOUTIQUE where you’ll find a wide range of gift ideas that will be a joy to unwrap!

SCENT FOR THE QUEEN OF LUXE
Perfumes and Eau De Toilettes are my favorite go-to gifts. This scent is perfect for that special girlfriend who needs a little nudge to get in touch with her sensual side. I started seeing Carolina Herrera’s Velvet Fatale from their Good Girl Collection creep up at some of the airports’ duty-free stores. Now you can get it at your nearby Shoppers Drug Mart in their beautyBOUTIQUE section. The bottle looks amazing (do they make heels that high?) and the scent is dangerous, evocative and seductive. It is literally the perfect holiday scent, with distinct hints of jasmine, tonka, and cocoa. If you have the original Good Girl from Carolina Herrera, the Velvet Fatale is a touch similar but spicier with a bit of a sweet caramel scent to it. This is one scent your girlfriend will wear anytime she goes out on a date or wants to stand out from the crowd.

We all have that one friend who is always so busy and on the go that it’s (literally!) up to you to help them take a little time out for themselves. Plus, if your friend is a social butterfly (like my friend who is attending more than a dozen Christmas parties this month), this gift is a perfect way for them to stop and take a few minutes for R&R. GLAMGLOW™ Forget the Filter Set is great for anyone on the go to get a quick treatment to help instantly refine their pores and even out skin tone. Their INSTAMUD™ only needs 60 seconds to do serious magic for your skin, quickly taking it from dull and rough to glowing and super soft. The GLOWSTARTER™ will flood your skin with hydration to help your skin look radiant throughout the day. I love the small size and so will she because it’s super convenient for travel.

I am obsessed with glitter! If your friend loves glitter or shimmery eyeshadows and loves makeup, then STILA Enchanted Eyes Liquid Eye Shadow Set and Shimmering Heights Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Set is the perfect stocking stuffer! Both of these collections will make a statement and best part – they are long-lasting (so no touch ups) and a little goes a long way! My personal favorite is Kitten and Cloud from the Shimmering Heights Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Set. If I want to add a little drama, dab a little of the Smoky Storm color from the Enchanted Eyes Liquid Eye Shadow Set and voila!
