FOR THE HARD TO SHOP FOR
Now, what to buy for the hard to shop for person? Perhaps the biggest challenge when it comes to gift-giving is picking out items for those that are not very close to you, like office colleagues or a distant family member. How do you please them? Keep it safe by picking gifts that are “universally” appreciated. And I don’t mean mugs and photo frames. Gift cards are always safe and sure. Try gift cards from any popular stores—bookstores, clothing stores, home store Lowes and Home Depot is always overlooked for gift cards, yet so useful). Other useful cards include Whole Foods or Fresh Market and of course, Starbucks. You can’t go wrong with those!
DRESS FOR THE HOLIDAYS
With your gift in tow you are ready do dazzle them at the holiday party, make sure your holiday look is just right. For party-ready lips, you can’t go wrong with red. Just make sure to choose the right red for your skin tone. But this season, be daring with deeper shade of red, like burgundy. A lot like that red wine you’d be sipping all night!
Your probably running around looking for ideas for gifts but look what I’ve found lurking in cyber space (or your nearby store). Everyone loves accessories, and these are some of the best of the lot. Grab ’em while they’re hot!
