12 Days of Gifts and Giving with fragrance, concert tickets and something for the stocking

 Hello Gorgeous,
Well, today as we are nearing the end of the 12 Days of Gifts and Giving Holiday Gift Guide with Makeup University, I want to share something from both ends of the spectrum.

As you know, personally, fragrance is my favorite gift. Then I also love travel and live events and finally, I want to share something that could be part gift, part gag, possibly a lump of coal and maybe even a fun experiment.

Ah, fragrance. I love all Chanel and Dior scents and pretty much anything Coty makes. Some celebrity fragrances are intriguing but here in lies the little fragrance that could!

I have been so impressed by the MaryKay Thinking of Love parfum and it's matching lotion. Remember, when giving fragrance, always give something to layer it with like the lotion, body wash or body powder. Why? Because it layers the scent to allow the wearer to adjust just how much scent for how long!  This fragrance is so romantic! It's perfect for a Christmas or Hanukkah gift.

Well, then if I did not get a fragrance for Christmas I truly want to get a pair of tickets to go to a live event. I love concerts, movies, theater shows and art exhibits. I was recently on The Linq in Las Vegas and saw this sign for one of my all time favorite bands, Jane's Addiction. I couldn't make that show-but that doesn't mean I wouldn't take tickets to see Michael Buble or Andre Boccelli!

 Finally, for fun and giggles-why not put as a stocking stuffer an item that is labeled "As Seen On TV"? The Amope Pedi-Perfect battery powered callus remover really works! I recently did an event for them and I was so surprised at how well this little power tool for pedicures really works! It's available at drugstores and mass retailers and is a perfect stocking stuffer.

So there is the Christmas gift giving from the favorite, to the luxury to the just for fun!

Remember, no matter what you give as a gift, it's where it comes from that matters. Not the store, or the price tag, but a gift given from the heart with the intention of blessing someone in the holiday season!

How about you? Have you finished your Christmas and Hanukkah shopping yet?
