Looking for something to give to that special someone this holiday season? Have a gift exchange at work or need something for your gal pals? Have teenagers (do I need to say more). I'm taking the guess work out of trying to find a unique gift for the women (and men) in your life with my top 7 picks this giving season. None of these will break the bank yet they all scream quality and thoughtfulness!

I've tried several of their products and what I love most is the Argan Oil after using their Keratin shampoo and conditioner. My entire family uses it and having a daughter with hair down to her knees I've tried everything to keep the tangles at bay. This stuff works wonders not only on her tangles but it adds so much shine, oh and it smells beyond amazing! Grab several of the products and create a custom gift basket for anyone this holiday season (great for the men on your list too) Learn more and where to buy: http://haskbeauty.com
What do you do when you find a rockstar product? Share of course! Maven Botanicals Enlightened brings your skin all it wants and nothing it doesn't. All organic ingredients and natural, never tested on animals. Oh and it smells wonderful, absorbs well and leaves no residue. Works great under your favorite foundation too. Don't let the size fool you, I use 2 pumps 2x a day so I expect this bottle to last me months.

Ladies always wanna look there best, these puppies are another gift that will have her wondering how you are so keen on this type of thing. Starting at only $7 per set you can afford to get more than one style. I've tried several falsies and Dollhouse Lashes are by far my favorite.
Starting at $7 Free standard shipping on U.S orders over $25.00
On October 1st, 2016 Dollhouse Lashes started donating a dollar per classic beauty sold to their local breast cancer resource center. Founded by two best friends with a passion for beauty, art, and making people feel good, their love for the industry initially started as kids, doing hair and makeup on each other at sleepovers. After starting a freelance company doing hair and makeup, they decided to give back by donating their time and resources to local cancer agencies.

Wine for any reason, sign me up but one that can support a cause you believe in.... I say cheers to that! Order by the half case or single bottle each purchase will benefit a charity of your choosing, Ordering by mail was so simple, shipping totally reasonable and the price per bottle is way less than I was expecting and what I normally would spend on a bottle. Oh and most importantly, they are by far some of the best wines I've had!
With an award winning collection of wines, gifts, and other gourmet products, every item provides a built-in donation to a meaningful cause partner, it's like double the gift giving!https://www.viaonehope.com/thatwinechick

The Queen Mary:
Where do I start! There are so many places I would love to visit during or after the holidays but The Queen Mary is one I would recommend for the charm, history and the mystery! This is where you can get super creative in your gift giving. Book a Sunday brunch, do a couples wine tasting, check out one of the many guided tours they offer or spend New Years Eve on board dancing and ringing in the New Year to spectacular fireworks!
Did you know? Admission to the Queen Mary of Free after 6pm. Enjoy the stunning views aboard the ship, walk her majestic passages and do some exploring of your own (blackout dates apply) http://www.queenmary.com
So there you have it! Hope I helped inspire your gift giving ideas for that special someone in your life. I have personally tried them all or else I wouldn't recommend them to you. Many are homegrown business so you will be supporting locally as well.
To help you start your gift giving I am giving away a (3) pack of Dollhouse Lashes (ones pictured above) for you to keep or to get a head start on filling your "Nice" list gifts!
