And by things that I want to buy for other people, I really mean things that I want to buy for myself.
Victoria's Secret Tank & Yoga Set, $49.50 at victoriassecret.com: This is such a great 'lounging around in my room pretending to study for finals' outfit that one, is adorable, two, wouldn't shame you if you had to walk down to do laundry or grab a snack, and three, works equally well as separates. It comes a bunch of different colors, and I can say from personal experience that their yoga pants are fab AND actually great for doing yoga in.
LUSH Christmas Tweets gift set, $27.95 at lushusa.com: Lush has fab holiday gift sets. They're all holiday themed and come pre-wrapped in these adorable boxes. This one has Snowcake soap, Vanilla Fountain bath bomb, Smitten hand creme, and Lil Pud bath bomb. It's great for anyone who loves taking baths, and that soap will last forever.
LUSH Christmas Candy Box, $39.95 at lushusa.com: This gift set has Snow Fairy shower gel, Candy Cane bubble bar, Rockstar soap, Honey I Washed the Kids soap, Bubblegum lip scrub and Snow Fairy lip tint. This would be great for any girly girl, with all the pink and super-sweet scents (the honey soap literally smells like candy), and I love how well the products coordinate. Also, I'm dying to try a bubble bar--they're like concentrated bubble bath. Someone buy me this? Please?
Essie 2010 Winter Collection 6 Pc Cube, $25.95 at amazon.com: This is a great deal. Essie's usually run about $8, and here you get 6 full-sized bottles. So you're basically saving $20 and getting some fab colors. This includes Smoking Hot, a mauvey grey, Masquerade Belle, a vampy red jelly, Silken Cord, a fiery orange red, Going Incognito, a forest green, Hot Coco, which is exactly what it sounds like, and Luxedo, a very dark vampy purple.
Too Faced Pixie Perfect, $42 at sephora.com: I love holiday sets. This is such a steal. You get the adorable bag (so great for traveling), an eyeshadow quad with Velvet Revolver, Enchanted Forest, Totally Toasted, and Peach Fuzz, a Papa Don't Peach blush and Sun Bunny bronzer, Shadow Insurance primer, Glamour Gloss in Plush, and Lash Injection mascara. That's $110 of product for less than half of that price. Such a win.
Philosophy Share the Joy Set, $36 at sephora.com: Speaking of great holiday sets, this has matching shower gels and lip glosses in Candy Cane, Cinnamon Buns, Bubbly (champagne), and Peppermint Bark. I love this because you get to try a lot of the Philosophy scents for not a lot of money, and heck, even 4 lipglosses for $36 is a good deal. Through in the shower gels and you're making out like a bandit.
