I don’t know a girl who doesn’t love receiving something not only beautiful, but also beautifying.  While we’ve outgrown the ol’ Bath & Body Works gift sets, it’s still wonderful to give (and receive!) the gift of beauty.  I could have listed a hundred products that would make more than stellar gifts, but I have whittled it down to ten as to not overwhelm you.  Maybe these gifts didn’t tickle your fancy, but they did get you thinking about buying someone special something from the beauty department.  Here are a few tips to keep in mind while shopping:

  1. Don’t give something offensive like a waxing kit (even if she does have a hairy upper lip).
  2. Perfume is way too personal (unless recipient has told you EXACTLY which fragrance she’s wishing for).
  3.  When in doubt, go for something with lots of options, like a kit where she can mix and match to make the perfect shade.
