It’s almost that time of year again: you know, the time when you’re obligated to blow a good chunk of your hard-earned money on your family and friends. If your inner circle is anything like mine, they sure as hell expect something nice. Oven mitts just aren’t going to fly for my mom anymore, and my dad balks in the face of an Office Max fountain pen. I’m not going to lie, buying and giving gifts is hard, mostly because you can’t guarantee that someone will like something unless they’ve explicitly said what they’d want… and where’s the fun in that? For my people, my foolproof gift-buying agenda is to delve into Sephora and not emerge until a) my debit card cracks in half or b) I’ve got something for everyone (whichever comes first). Seriously, male or female, there’s not a single person I know who will deny a body butter in their favorite scent or a luxurious herbal bubble bath. My holiday gift guide stays true to that and regardless of age, gender, or skin type, everybody will be smelling good and feeling even better.
