The 4 Holiday Gift Sets I'm Giving (and Wanting) This Year

Posted 12/09/10 at 04:10PM by Audrey Fine

Full disclosure: I am often guilty of gifting what I wish I were receiving. And, as a result, most of my close friends and family end up with oodles of beauty bounty under their trees. Here's a sneak peek at what I'm going to be getting thank you notes for this year. (If you want to know the other beauty bounty I'm busy wrapping up, you can see it here.)

No. 1 Lush Christmas Star, $34.95
This has long been a favorite gift. Who can resist this festive star that's packed with six of their fabled bath bombs? Not I!

No. 2 Philosophy Candy Cane Lane, $22
A too-cute retro canister is chockfull of the three pepperminty goodies, Candy Cane bubble bath, shower gel and lip shine. Delish!

No. 3 Burt's Bees Holiday Grab Bag, $25 (down from $50!)
Who wouldn't love a potluck sack full of 12 earth friendly creams, lotions and maybe even toothpaste? The best part is that no two are alike.

No. 4 Nars Bento Box, $125
For the high end diva on your list comes this "extremely limited" box that contains two hand-poured Kabuki cups filled with two new shades of lip color -- Maiko and Sakura. It comes with a lip brush and is as chic as it is cool.

Looking for a perfect stocking stuffer? This is my favorite $10 gift. And, anyone who loves mascara will adore this great Sephora find.
And the survey says...

    The NARS Bento Box looks AMAZING. I never wear colors that bright, but I still wanted this set because it looks so pretty.

    i love christmas themed gifts and bath products too! bath and body works has the best! and their small hand lotion/sanitizer versions make nice stocking stuffers.

    I have Philosophy's Candy Cane lip shine and I have tried the shower gel and I say GO FOR IT! The lip gloss in particular is utterly worth it. A great amount of shine that is perfect for layering over a colored lip stick and the mint keeps your breath smelling fresh all day. I would LOVE the Nars bento box because the brush looks super cute and the red looks like a true classic pin up girl color.
