2) Votre Vu Winter WonderHands Bébé Duette Gift Set ($79)
Ever since I got my hands on Votre Vu’s super cute bebe Duette Luxe Hand Creme and Lip Balm combo, I have been obsessed! It’s a brilliant duo of of a travel sized beautifully moisturizing warm almond and coconut hand creme paired with an emollient vitamin E lip balm in the cap! Brilliant! The lip balm comes in the original clear and a new rose-hue framboise infused sheer balm. And Winter WonderHands comes with three sets of these cult fav duos, each wrapped in their own bag so that you can keep one set and give the others away. I love traveling with a duette because it’s a 2 in 1 product and it smells divine. If you love this brand, here’s another great gift set Little Miss Hard to Buy For Holiday Gift Set ($45)
Stila does it again with this holiday inspired set of their best-selling smudge stick waterproof eye liners.

Lather always has such fabulous and well-priced holiday gift sets. The Nutcracker Sweet is a yummy and totally addictive duo of an almond-infused body buff and body butter.

I recently visited the newly opened Hollywood & Highland L’Occitane store and had the privilege of going on a fabulous shopping spree! I totally fell in love with the Limited Edition Marvellous Flowers Eau de Toilette, a gorgeous intoxicating fragrance of sparkling red fruit notes followed by a soft trail of peony and rose. OMG to die for! And this beautifully packaged set includes a wonderful collection of products in this swoon worthy scent: an eau de toilette, shower gel, hand cream and soap, divine! And while I was shopping, I also got introduced to their cult fav Almond products and the Almond Enchantment Gift Set ($68) is definitely another fab gift set to give this season.
Senna holds a special place in my heart since this was THE make-up store of my youth and has continued to wow and inspire into my adulthood. I am totally smitten with the Haute Nudes Sultry warm toned make-up set right now (the Haute Nudes Mystic Cool Rosy Nudes Palette ($48) is also pretty fab!) Each palette contains six shimmer and velvet matte eye colors, one soft sheer matte blush. one luminous highlighter and a Get the Look Booklet that illustrates how to achieve two stunning looks (day and night) with one palette. GORGEOUS!
