The beauty gift
Offer a perfume
This is often the first gift that one thinks of doing to a woman and yet, the likes of perfume are very personal. Tip to remember: in large perfumeries you can ask for a small sample of the perfume chosen so that it can test it without opening the bottle (and therefore exchange it if it does not suit).
Small budget: avoid the supermarket perfume boxes, it’s really cheap. At shopping mall, you will find perfumes not too expensive (and often they make reductions -50% on a product of your choice: to watch!). It is a popular 5 year anniversary gift for her now days.
Big budget: near the holidays, Sephora offers very nice gift boxes .
If she is wearing make-up , chances are she likes it. If you do not know what to choose, go to perfumery and choose a palette: it is an assortment mostly of makeup (eyelids, cheeks …) with sometimes also mascara and / or lipstick. The pallets Urban Decay such proven and are much appreciated.
If she likes the natural ingredients, go to Lush or have you guided parapharmacy .
Small budget: This is the fashion of nail polish ! Take advantage of it to offer them, especially since the ones you will find in supermarkets, are affordable and of very good quality. Good plan: go to Kiko : their products are of good quality and their prices, unbeatable!
Offer a massage, care
If you are not sure of yourself, you can always offer a hand massage for example. Indeed, it is less engaging than a body massage (she may hesitate to undress if she is shy) or even face. Choose an institute, beauty salon or spa recognized and located near its home.
Small budget: zap the institute by directly offering a book on self-massage .
Large budget: professional devices are becoming more democratic: offer them the opportunity to make themselves beautiful at home! If she likes to style her hair, go for the Rolls for hair straighteners / loopers: a GHD iron or a Steampod . For a good facial cleansing, opt for a Clarisonic brush . And to put an end to the chore of waxing once and for all, offer him an epilator with pulsed light !
Smart option: offer a beauty box
If you do not know exactly what to choose, you can opt for a beauty box, that is, a surprise box containing several beauty products, care and make-up that the person will enjoy discovering. These boxes are often available either for a single purchase or as a subscription. I tested half a dozen beauty boxes and the best according to me is the Birchbox ! It has been more than 2 years since I receive it every month and I have never been disappointed …
