The holidays are almost here, but there’s still time to pick up some nifty items that make you feel good. Here are three very different gifts that will make you feel good…and I do mean, “good” in so three very different ways.
The Gift That Makes You Feel Good Because It Gives Back: Kiehl’s Limited Edition Creme de Corps Whipped Body Butters is in Kiehls boutiques and on Kiehls.com in not just one, but two fragrances, Grapefruit and Coriander. This beloved classic from Kiehls is one of those things that devotees can’t live through Winter, without. And if your skin tends to be dry, you need it 24/7 365 days a year!
Creme de Corps Whipped Body Butters are seriously rich in hydration to make “lizard” skin back into smooth, soft, non-itchy skin in an instant (and I do mean, almost instantly). It offers 24-hour hydration and am air-whipped for instant penetration so all that goodness is absorbed and not left sitting in grease on your skin’s surface. It has no parabens, glycols or silicones.
But more importantly for those who like to do good as well as feel good, 100% of the net profits, up to $100,000, will be donated to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign to support efforts to end childhood hunger in America. The limited edition jars are each topped with a label that was designed by 11-year-old Sofie Shore, the daughter of Share Our Strength co-founder, Debbie Shore. An attractive, 8 ounce jar is just $38.00 and will provide relief not just for hungry kids, but for hydration starved skin. This is a gift to give yourself, too (personally, I’d go for the uplifting scent of grapefruit to get me going in the mornings on those still dark days of Winter).
*Note – the Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter in Grapefruit Available exclusively at Kiehl’s retail stores and Kiehls.com. Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter in Coriander Available exclusively through Kiehl’s specialty retail partners, such as Nordstrom.

The Gift to Make Yourself Feel happy: Going to Grandma’s for the holidays? While some families and friends respect total privacy, others do not. And if you’re flying somewhere consider that these days, your privacy is limited. One way to enjoy privacy and pleasure is with the Mia 2 by LELO (srp. $69.00). This lipstick device can literally rock your world. It is 100% waterproof with a smooth FDA-approved ABS shell (hard plastic) in deep rose, pink or black. Don’t let the small size fool you –it’ deceptively powerful, easy to use, without too many bells & whistles to learn, but still, the MIA™ has 6 patterns for a full 1.5 hours of continuous use, to pop into your makeup bag. It comes with a satin storage pouch, user manual, and full 1-Year warranty. Rocket yourself to another dimension and be smiling, no matter where you are. Visit the Lelo.com website to learn more
The Gift That Is Good for Your Budget: You might not think there’s much you can give for under $10.00, especially at the last minute, but these Glam Rock Wristlet bags from Soho Beauty are easy to love. Metallic quilted bags big enough to stuff with a phone and other party essentials, also double as a delightful makeup bag for a glamour girl. We like the gold, purple and hot pink hues that not only look festive, they let you find your “must-haves” easily in your big tote or handbag during the day, too. Give them for just $10.00 “as-is” or tuck a cute purse mirror and a new lipstick in a bold red into the bag, and you’re still “on budget” and ready to make someone’s holiday happy, even if it’s last minute. Get yours at just $10 at Walgreens stores nationwide or visit http://sohobeauty.com/
