Holiday Gift Guide: 12 Stylish Picks

The holidays are drawing near so I’ve searched high and low for the best gifts at all price points. Here are my picks for presents I would love to give OR get. I think you will find something for everyone on your list!

1. allPop Art Portrait, BUY NOW, $149 to $369
I am a huge fan of personalized gifts and love the allPop Art custom portraits. Whether you want to “Warhol-ize” or “Lichtenstein-ize” your best friend, uncle, or favorite pet, it’s a fun and meaningful present. Just send in a photo of your choice and allPop will turn it into a customized piece of art. I recently purchased an allPop gift certificate for a dear friend who was thrilled to receive it. It’s also listed as one of Oprah’s “favorite one of a kind personalized gifts.”

2. Striiv Fitness Device, BUY NOW, $99.95
The Striiv fitness device transforms your gift giving into a fun and hi-tech way to get fit! A lot more than just a pedometer, the fitness device offers motivational tools, interactive features, and an easy to read LCD screen. It is sleek and small, easy to carry on your keychain, belt loop, or bag, and every step you take counts as a donation to charity at no cost to you! Talk about the gift that keeps on giving.

3. Jacques Levine slippers, BUY NOW, $98
Who doesn’t need a new and great-looking pair of slippers? The new Jacques Levine collection is fashion forward with these ballet-style slippers. They are elegant and luxurious and look so great you will want to wear them outside! Jacques Levine is recognized for their feminine touches, and soft kidskin construction.  Available in several fun colors and patterns.

4. Stephanie Johnson ML Traveler Make-up Case, BUY NOW, $74
With all of the great products to give and receive, your beauty junkies need something stylish to tote around their beauty bounty. These cases come in so many chic patterns — I personally own the “Lima” made of purple, gray and black faux python and use it as my every day make-up bag. The bag also has two removable mesh compartments in the center so products  stay organized and are easy to find. Celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Ginnifer Goodwin and Penelope Cruz among others are all fans too!

5. L’Occitane Hand Cream Bouquet, BUY NOW, $50
L’Occitane makes so many fab products so it’s no surprise that these are my favorite hand creams. This special holiday edition makes a great gift set with six delicious scents, including Coca Flower, Desert Rose, and Vanilla Flower. They are travel size, and I love that they are easy to divide among different handbags.

 

Body Washes We Love

Whether you need a wake-up call in the morning or a soothing bath after work, there is a body wash right for you. Instead of reaching for your AM coffee, try out a citrus-scented wash to perk you up. If you have sensitive skin and are in need of nutrients and hydration, try a creamy or oil-infused wash, sure to soften and revitalize your skin. No matter your budget, you’ll find one that’s perfect for your skin-type. They certainly beat using bar soaps!

1. Kio Kio- Citrus Petal and Tartara
Made with mineral-rich spring water, sustainably harvested plant extracts and organic ingredients from New Zealand this body wash not only does good for the body, but also the environment. The citrus petal and tartara scent is flowery with a hint of lemon to wake you up and soften your skin at the same time.

2. L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil
iconImagine bathing or showering with a body wash that smells of sweet almonds and has an amazingly soothing feel to it! L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil is super moisturizing and made with 100% Provence Almond Oil. Besides cleansing and hydrating the skin, it’s also a favorite to use for shaving. Everyone who tries this product is addicted (including the guys)!

3. Peter Thomas Roth Mega-Rich™ Body Wash
Although almost all hotels leave an array of bath products for visitors to use, the quality is not always up to par. Hilton Hotels decided to commission Peter Thomas Roth to create a luxury line of unisex bath and body products that everyone would love. The body wash is full of vitamins A, B, and C, and it cleanses the skin while nourishing and revitalizing it. With its exfoliating beads and refreshing grapefruit scent, you’ll feel like you’re on vacation every time you use it!
Buy Now, $18

4. Lush- Creamed Almond and Coconut Shower Smoothie
This body wash is unique as it is more of a cream/moisturizer than a simple shower gel. Made with almond oil which is high in vitamin E, it is especially good for those who have naturally dry skin. Although it’s called an “almond and coconut smoothie”, it is not overpowering at all. Rather, it emits a subtle scent: a mix of vanilla, jasmine and ylang.
Buy Now, $18

5. Bliss Lemon + Sage Soapy Suds Body Wash + Bubbling Bath
Start off your morning in a great mood with this uplifting sage and lemon body wash by bliss. The easy-pump top allows for just enough lather in order to give you extremely soft, vitamin-rich skin. Formulated for even the most sensitive skin, this wash doubles as a bubble bath too!
Buy Now, $18

6. Booth’s Triple Action Bath, Shower & Hair Wash Revitalizing Rosemary Mint
Booth’s Triple Action Bath, Shower & Hair Wash is an all-in-one shampoo, body wash, and bubble bath. In a subtle Rosemary Mint scent, it’s perfect to perk you up in the morning and start off the day right. This product is not only convenient at home, but also for multi-tasking or travelers on the go!
Buy Now, $7

7. St. Ives Purify Exfoliating Body Wash
This exfoliating body wash isn’t harsh at all like many others, but cleans deep with tiny beads to renew the skins surface and softness. Made with sea kelp and mineral salts, this cleanser revives the skin with vitamins and anti-oxidants. Plus, it emits a soothing beachy scent that we love.

Mother’s Day Gifts for Every Mom

By Melissa Meyers

MothersDay_collagenew

Mother’s day is approaching fast which brings with it the task of finding the perfect gift for Mom.  There are plenty of new products out there that are sure to suit even the pickiest of mothers.  I have something unique and special for every type of mom:

1. Foodie Mom Gwyneth Paltrow’s New Cookbook – “My Father’s Daughter”
I went to Gwyneth’s book signing at Barnes and Noble a few weeks ago to pick up a copy of her new cook book to review. Thanks to Glee, we all know superstar celeb Gwyneth can sing, but did you know she can cook? In “My Father’s Daughter” she shares her recipes that celebrate family and togetherness.  With a foreword by master chef Mario Batali, you know the recipes must be delicious! They are also remarkably easy for even the most gastronomically challenged Mom.  Plus, there’s something for every palatte from the exotic tuna and ginger burgers to chicken and dumplings to wood oven pizza. I literally want to try every recipe in this book.

2. Fashionable Mom
Rich Rocks Jewelry

Rich Rocks is a fabulous costume jewelry line with a celebrity following that appeals to women of all ages. The cast of Gossip Girl certainly loves their baubles–Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Kelly Rutherford to name a few.  The selection is carefully edited and there is something for everyone. For the classic mom, I love the elegant pair of silver clover hoops (very Van Cleef). The boho Mom will adore the leaf earrings with champagne crystals and the hip Mom would enjoy the oversized hanging smokey dangle earrings.  Also, all of the jewelry looks luxe and the pieces have a nice weight to them.
Buy Now – Clover hoops – $75

Buy Now – Leaf earrings – $40

Buy Now – Smokey dangle earrings – $75

Jennifer Miller Jewelry
Another great costume jewelry line and designer who is always on trend is Jennifer Miller. I am crazy about their dog tag necklace engraved with the sentiment, “LUV U MOM.” I like this one for the cool Mom who lives in jeans and t-shirts. It also has a yellow gold-plated cut out heart charm disk to add to the style. Made of sterling silver on a 30” stainless ball chain, the necklace looks very substantial and is the perfect Mother’s Day gift for Mom from the kids.
Buy Now – $175

3. Pampered Mom L’Occitane Sparkling Verbena Skin Care Set
If you’re mom loves the spa, pamper her this Mother’s Day with this Sparkling Verbena set from L’Occitane.  This kit has everything Mom needs to relax including shower gel, body lotion, a delicious verbena scented sachet, shea butter hand cream and shea butter soap in milk and verbena scent.  It even comes with a Mother’s Day card. I am a huge fan of these products and use them regularly.  It is SO nice when someone buys them for you!

4. Beauty Junkie Mom “All About My Mother” Make-up Gift Pack
Celebrity make-up artist Napoleon Perdis “All About My Mother” gift pack comes wrapped and ready to go in a lovely gift box.  The make-up kit includes a cute vintage-inspired coin case with universally flattering shades of eyeshadow, cream blush and lip color.  I love the lip color because it is shiny but not sticky and the four color eye shadow palette has the hottest colors of the season.  Cream blush is super easy to use and all of the makeup in the kit comes with “how to” instructions (available in two different color palettes).
Buy Now – $49 ($100 value)

5. Techie Mom PhotoOp Ipad Case
If your Mom is anything like me, she never goes anywhere without her iPad.  Luckily, PhotoOp makes an iPad case that you can personalize with an adorable photo of the kids.  All moms appreciate personalized gifts! Just email PhotoOp the picture you would like to use as a jpeg, and they will send you the ipad case. Available in leather or fabric.
Buy Now – Leather – $150, Fabric – $120 (Call the studio at 212-362-1911 to place an order)

6. Eco-Conscious Mom Recycled Windshield White Wine Decanter from Gifts.com
A sophisticated and modern wine decanter made from recycled auto-glass is the ideal gift for the eco-conscious Mom.  What’s really cool about this decanter is that it has an open ice chamber that chills wine without diluting it.  Every decanter is unique and handmade in Colombia making it a special gift that any Earth-friendly mother will love to have in her home.  I would use it as a decorative piece and for chilling ice tea or lemonade!

8. Organized Mom (or one who wants to be) PurseN Purse Organizers
Whether your Mom loves to be organized or if your Mom is the type who can’t find anything in her purse (sound familiar?), the PurseN purse inserts are a fashionable and functional gift.  These organizers make it easy to change from purse to purse without leaving behind any of your go-to items and keep bags clean.

LoveQuotes Scarf
9. Charitable Mom Love Quotes Scarves
Loved by celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Hudson, and Jennifer Aniston for their luxe fabric, chic colors and charitable cause, Phyllis Wiener’s “Love Quotes” scarves make a perfect gift for the chic Mom who wants to give back. The scarves, available at lovequotesnyc.com, come in an array of gorgeous colors and can be worn around your neck, as a shawl, or on the beach as a cover up.  They also happen to be the perfect size and are amazingly soft.  I want them in every color! Plus, 10% of the proceeds are donated to international children’s charities.  Each scarf comes with its own special quote, making it a truly heartfelt gift.  P.S. Did you see Sofia Vergara in the new Pepsi commercial sporting the Regatta blue one as a pareo?
