Here are some of my favorite gift ideas for this year


For Her:

Virginia Stone ‘Eyes’ – Virginia Stone’s first product to launch from her collection, ‘Eyes’, is more than just an eye cream. She
customizers her products to best benefit each skin type and packages it in a gorgeous, all eco-friendly ceramic luxador box that makes for a stunning presentation. Choose from the fairest skin type, Kavesi, medium skin type Jasari, to darkest skin type Odaja. (Virginia Stone ‘Eye’, $185)

Ayuna Skincare – Suitable for all skin types but focused on Anti-aging. Their philosophy is that anti-aging implies an intrinsic war against aging. AYUNA • Less Is Beauty dares to disrupt this mindset and replaces it with WELL•AGING, a modern and integrated approach to beauty which embraces a lifestyle that promotes aging gracefully.  The result is a visible improvement in skin texture, wrinkles, redness, elasticity & dark spots. All of the products come packaged in eco-friendly, beautiful boxes but the skincare kits make for a great presentation for larger gifts for mom or another lucky lady in your life. (Ayuna Skincare, $38 – $240)

Makana Bath Salts – Give the gift of relaxation to the hard working woman in your life with a bottle of calming bath salts to enjoy. Makana also makes 100% soy based candles with phthalate-free natural fragrance and essential oils and lead-free cotton wicking, available in scents that match their relaxing bath salts. (Makana Studios, $12 – $32)









Modern Minerals Lip Gloss – Modern Minerals is one of my favorite makeup brands and I never leave home without one of their glosses since I got my first on. The emotive glosses are actually blended with Lotus Wei scents using flower and gem essence magnify love, inner strength, compassion and living in the present moment. The invigorating gloss collection incorporates the sweet, tingly invigorating properties of Ayurvedic Swertia Chirata Extract and Asian Dragon Fruit to enhance the appearance of fullness.  This sweet + spicy blend leave your lips feeling fresh and a little tingly which I love (Shop Modern Minerals, $25)

LVX Nail Polish in Alchemy – I am impressed with the quality and colors LVX creates, every time! Not only are the polishes beautiful but they are 7- toxic free, cruelty-free and vegan. I like the color Alchemy especially for the holidays and New Years with their gel top coat for a touch of holiday sparkle to any outfit – and don’t forget their nail polish removers too. Made with oils instead of toxic chemicals and harsh alcohols these not only work but  also leave your nails moisturized (LVX Polish in Alchemy, $18. LVX Gel Top Coat, $20. LVX Nail Polish Remover, $20)


For Him:

Falling Whistle – Falling Whistle Necklace – This unisex accessory is more than just a beautiful necklace but also a symbol that you are a whistleblower for peace – check out the product to read the full story (Falling Whistles, $50).

GOA Skincare – We’ve all got vices – alcohol, sun, smoking or stress – these products are made to reduce the appearance of the vices the man in your life has. This packaging is sexy and the gift sets especially make for beautiful gifts because they’re already packaged but even the single products are the perfect gift – in fact, my dad will be getting one for Christmas this year – shhh – don’t tell him. (Shop GOA Skincare, $28 – $205)

Strange Invisible Perfumes – A top luxury brand on the market, Strange Invisible Perfumes make an impression that lasts. Of course, my favorite is the Black Rosette – the dark side of roses. Hydro-distilled essences of rose and Moroccan spearmint cling to the menacing aroma of leather (Strange Invisible Perfumes, Black Rosette (50 ml), $385).
