With the holidays fast approaching, finding the right gifts for everyone on your list can be a daunting task. Socks and ties are often the first go-tos for men, and of course, every woman in your life would appreciate gift certificates to their favorite stores. Rather than defaulting to these boring options, however, it's time to think outside the box. This year, give your loved ones the staying power of self-confidence and pamper them with luxury and comfort. This year, give them the gift of beauty.
Skin concerns? Go neutral instead
Most people have a tried and true skin care routine that has been refined to match their needs. For this reason, people often shy away from giving new products to their loved ones without first knowing a little bit about their existing regimens. Although there may be some truth in this mentality, the fun of gift-giving is in the element of surprise.
Rather than fretting over the specifics, try taking a neutral approach. For instance, women in your life who agonize over their fine lines and wrinkles would love the Elemis Pro-Collagen Jewels. This set includes everything from lifting treatments to anti aging eye care. This collection seeks to reverse the caress of time by targeting deep lines and dryness, and the youthful and reusable packaging will let the recipient take her products wherever she goes.
For a slightly younger audience, the Elemis Beauty Treasures provide women with the assets - a peel, a cleanser, a moisturizer and more - for a full pampering session that can be done again and again. Similar to the pro-collagen option, this set comes with a convenient carrying case that's perfect for travel necessities.
Don't forget the men
Guys are hard to buy for, too. They're even more difficult to find a perfect present for in the world of beauty, but they don't have to be. If you have any men in your life who haven't tried a scrub, for instance, try putting the Elemis Energising Skin Scrub in their stockings. More often than not, they'll try it a few times alone and then begin asking for it next year.
Rather than avoiding beauty gifts, consider who the recipient is and ask yourself if they would appreciate something that could have a long-term effect on their self-confidence. Then, have fun shopping!
