The holidays are always my favorite time of year. There’s the gift giving and the holiday parties – what’s not to love? I’m taking some of the stress out of gift giving by sharing some great gift ideas that I would love to find in my stocking or under my tree. From great services to some fabulous gift sets, I think there is something for everyone.
Gift Certificate for Brows by Kristina
Ladies (and gents), who doesn’t want to have perfectly groomed and shaped brows by the Kristina Garncarz? Why not get a gift card for a brow shaping or lash lift and tint? It would make the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone! Available at the Strand Salon, River Edge.
Alison’s Aesthetics is my go-to for facials in the area. Allison offers HydraFacial, Dermaplaning, teen facials and more. Stop in and pick up a customized gift certificate for the holidays. Available at The Trokhan Group, Closter.
Who doesn’t want to make their New Year’s Resolutions stick? How about a two-hour weight loss and wellness consultation or a “pantry clean out?” These are just a few of the fabulous services that Audrey Zona offers. I would love to receive one of these gifts; it’s the perfect Christmas or Hanukkah gift. Available at www.livezohealthy.com.
Jardin Infusions Holiday Bundle
I love this new Bergen County company that features non-GMO 3-calorie floral-infused champagne mixers. This is the perfect stocking stuffer for any of your friends. Available at www.jardininfusions.com.
OG Gems Bracelets
I love this local Bergen County jewelry company. Created by two sisters, Theresa and Justine Gigante, they have tons of beautiful pieces for guys and girls. Buy one or buy a stack. Available at www.oggems.com.
Ela Rae Jewelry
Another great jewelry option that is a favorite of mine is Ela Rae. Also created by local Bergen County girls, their semi-precious stone line is a gorgeous and has endless layering pieces. They are the perfect gift for the girl who has everything. Available at Anthropologie, Edgewater.
Joy by Dior Perfume
This is the newest scent from Dior, and I am loving it! I think perfume is the perfect gift for the holidays. It’s one of those things that people don’t always buy themselves. This perfume is the perfect blend of musk and sandalwood. With the name Joy, I think it’s perfect for the holiday season. Available at Nordstrom, Paramus.
Kate Somerville Radically Radiant Set
I love this brand and this set comes with one of my favorite weekly treatments, the Exfolikate Mask. If you want some really great anti-aging products, this kit is for you. Available at Sephora, Paramus.
Oribe Gold Lust Set
One of my favorite hair care lines is Oribe, and I think it makes the perfect gift. I love this set that features their amazing shampoo and conditioner and a travel size of their hair oil. Available at J&Co. Salon, Paramus.
Laura Mercier Stardust Radiant Glow Palette
This limited edition highlight palette is perfect for the holiday season, as it will give you a glowing radiant look – just in time for that New Year’s Eve party. Available at Blue Mercury, Closter.
