So we are officially off to the races, the shopping races, that is. Only twenty-nine shopping days left until Christmas! So what’s my go-to gift this year? For women, overall, I still find the scented body lotion one of the best gifts you can give a woman. It’s personal yet not personal at the same time and most importantly, something the recipient probably wouldn’t pick up themselves.
I’m adding to the above pick this year with a perfumed candle. I mean, who doesn’t love a great candle and in their favorite scent? You really can’t go wrong.
Two that I’ve enjoyed that fall under this category are ALAïA PARIS Scented Candle ($89/5.2oz @ saks.com) Body Lotion ($55/6.7oz @ saks.com) and the Scented Body Cream ($95/6.9oz @ saks.com). This is the brand’s first fragrance ever and it took a few to grow on me as it’s not like anything else I have or normally go for. It’s described as airy notes and pink pepper; freesia and peony; animal notes and musk.
