11th Hour Holiday Gifts

Ok party people, it’s super-crunch time! The apps are being passed and the cider’s being spiked. Now it’s time to get your gifts on! Here’s a quick rundown to cover some of the coolest chicks you know…

For the” girly girl” beauty lover:
Tarte’s Puttin’ on the Glitz (limited-edition) color collection & clutch includes an old Hollywood-inspired metallic faux-python leather silver clutch, three interchangeable palettes chockfull of shadows, bronzer, blush, and a one shade-fits-all gloss. tartecosmetics.com

The Smashbox Be Discovered holiday palette has got everything—quite possibly the only thing you’d ever need to skip town carrying! Among the wonder-set’s highlights are 45 shadows, 9 Cream Eye Liners, 4 mini brushes, and 6 glosses. Check it out at smashbox.com

For the “keepin’ it real” skincare lover:
Clarisonic is a must-have for any skincare fanatic, and Sephora’s Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System is a can’t-miss gift! The kit includes the awesome travel-friendly Clarisonic Mia and four award-winning skin care formulation samples. Head over to the Westfield Sherman Oaks Macy’s or Sephora to pick one up.

The TRIA Hair Removal Laser is a godsend for the smooth ‘n’ bare-obsessed. It’s truly the ultimate gift this season for these skincare enthusiasts! This laser technology provides the same lasting results as the doctor’s office, but done from the comfort of home. Check it out at triabeauty.com.

DISCLAIMER: it’s probably best to make sure you know someone is interested in hair-removal before gifting this type of item. Just a suggestion.

For she who likes to light one up:
L’Artisan Parfumeur has a gorgeous trio of Mini scented candle coffrets. These babies will make her home feel like she’s relaxing with a good book under a giant tree in Tuscany. Scents include Mûre Sauvage, Oranger en Fleurs and Intérieur Figuier. artisanparfumeur.com

Created by Romano Ricci, the Juliette Has a Gun collection is filled with a fragrance dichotomy of rock ‘n’ roll elegance. If she likes Diptyque’s Feu de Bois scent, introduce her to his slightly edgier cousin Lucifer. Find ‘em at Planet Blue Escentials in Malibu or BeautyHabit.com.

For the “Sugar ‘n’ Spice” girl:
For the girl who likes life on the sweet side, the products from Lalicious are a taste of heaven. True story, the Brown Sugar & Vanilla scrub will make you want to eat your arm right there in the shower! Surf over to Lalicious.com and grab a few Collection Gift Sets ASAP.

Known for their oddly enticing bacon and chocolate concoctions, Vosges isn’t your ordinary candy shop. For the girl (or guy) who likes to mix up their sweet and savory a bit, arrive with their silver Holiday Gift Box in-hand! The collection comes wrapped in signature grosgrain ribbon and is a total reflection of the chic shop itself. Set includes: Holiday Truffle Collection, Holiday Gingerbread Toffee, and Holiday Mini Candy Bar Library. Shop ‘til your heart’s content at the Beverly Hills location or check out vosgeschocolate.com.

For the girl in need of some R & R:

A gift certificate to the Hotel Bel-Air Spa by La Prairie is all the stuffing any stocking could ask for! All her favorite La Prairie products—Luminous White Caviar, Platinum Rare, etc—are front and center at this gorgeous new haven on the hotel property. Give her the gift of lavish pampering! hotelbelair.com/la-prairie-spa

For the girl who loves being pampered, but doesn’t need all the frill, book her some time at Ona Spa on Beverly Blvd. They just rang in their 10-Year Anniversary and are in full celebration-mode. This month they’re offering 15% off of all Ona Spa Polish treatments and moisturizing body wraps. onaspa.com
