Nail art manicure. Nails have gone way beyond just color. Spring for some nail art for someone you love. It doesn’t have to be on every finger. One accent nail can create a great look, but nail art is mainstream. And fun. And it costs just a little more than the traditional manicure.
Shape up the eyebrows. As we age, eyebrows become different colors and unruly. Taking someone to a salon or place where an eyebrow expert helps choose color and shape is one of the nicest things you can do for a gal pal, mom or daughter. Or get a gift card. Ulta’s brow bar is the best. It takes an expert to know how much makeup to use and how to apply it correctly. Brows frame your eyes. They need shape and color — don’t just let them go. This goes for the guys too.
Sample packs. I once got my daughter a sample pack of perfumes. It was terrific because she could try out a bunch of scents and buy the one she liked. Or not. Victoria’s Secret has a sampler pack of seven body sprays for $21, and they also offer a perfume sampler for $34. The same is true of face creams, moisturizers and more. If you know someone loves a specific brand, check out the sample packs that let your giftee test out some additional products.
Sample packs are usually discounted by a ton at the holidays, so now is the time to buy them.
Moisturizing socks and gloves. Our weather is hard on skin, so anything that’s soft on it is genius. Moisturizing socks and gloves sound like the nicest gift ever. This picture is from Sephora and good for up to 50 uses at $36, but almost every retailer has them in some form. You won’t get 50 wearings out of them, though.
Today closes out free shipping day for a lot of vendors, so make it a good online day if you’re buying. Happy shopping!
