A Last Minute Gift Giving Guide FOR the Guys!

I talk a lot about beauty goodies for the ladies and for the kiddies, but what about the menfolk? They like to look and smell good too! And if they don't, well it's our job as ladies to lead them in that direction. Men can be notoriously difficult to shop for (or perhaps it's just the men in my life), but it is possible to get your guys the perfect present! For the ultimate luxury, you can  transform his daily grooming regimen from a chore into a masculine ritual. Selecting the right gift has never been easier; just use his personality as a guide. So here are a few suggestions for some  lovely gifts for the various men in your life, like your father (or father in law or boyfriend's father),  or your brother, and especially for your man (because there is nothing in the world like a good smelling man)...

A War of the Roses Where Everybody Wins! AKA: A Gift Guide

Fresh roses are awesome (if you're into that sort of thing), but they're pretty for a while and then they die... and leave a mess. So if you want to give the gift of roses, perhaps ponder something a bit more permanent-like skincare!

Gift the "Hostess with the Mostess" with Roux Maison!

I hate doing laundry. Well, technically, I hate folding laundry and putting it away. The sorting and actual washing is ok-but I hang a lot of our clothes to dry to in order to maintain their size, color, and shape and it's a general pain in my backside. But I digress...

I think it has been fairly well established that I like for things to smell good. That goes for my household products as well, including laundry detergent. So I surely would not turn up my nose (or even be mildly offended) if someone graciously gifted me with the luxury, eco friendly goodness that is Roux Maison laundry products..

Great Gift Sets From Josie Maran! AKA: A Gift Guide Part Deux

If you've been a reader for a while, then it's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Josie Maran Cosmetics. So of course I had to mention some of the great gift sets the brand has to offer this holiday season:

Moroccan Bazaar Argan Skin & Hair Bestsellers

The Moroccan Bazaar Argan Skin & Hair Bestsellers ($39 at Sephora) is a set of Josie’s bestselling products for healthy skin and hair. What it does:This must-have set features Josie’s best Argan-infused essentials for lustrous skin and hair. Perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin, this set includes Josie’s 100% Pure Argan Oil, Argan Cleansing Oil, Argan Balm, Whipped Argan Oil, Argan Hair Serum, and Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 40, each in a perfectly portable travel size! 

(This would be the perfect introduction for someone who does not know the wonders of Josie Maran Cosmetics and argan oil. I love that it is perfect for traveling as well or pick your can't leave home without it pieces to throw in your purse!)

Moroccan Bazaar Shimmer & Glow Argan Essentials

The Moroccan Bazaar Shimmer & Glow Argan Essentials ($28 at Sephora) is a set of Josie’s must-have products for luminous skin. What it does:Get a glow on the go with a handcrafted Moroccan makeup bag full of Josie’s must-haves for radiant skin. The handcrafted makeup bag was carefully woven in Morocco and supports sustainable employment for artisans. This set includes Josie’s 100% Pure Argan Oil, Argan High Gloss Lip Quench, Argan Illuminizer, and Argan Color Stick in Rosey, all in adorably portable travel sizes. 

(This set is great for the little lady in your life! I'm super picky about the cosmetics I allow my oldest (12 year old) daughter to wear, but I would have no qualms at all about her using the items in this kit. I think it's quite lovely for anyone that is looking to simplify their makeup routine or incorporate more natural pieces to their collection.)

Get Glowing - Argan Beautiful Skin

The Get Glowing - Argan Beautiful Skin ($64 at Sephora) is a five-piece set of Josie’s must-haves for naturally glowing skin. She believes that healthy skin is happy, beautiful skin, and this collection has everything you need to nourish your body and face from the inside out. Explore the versatility of Argan Oil and use it to hydrate and nourish from head to toe. The Argan Balm is a fragrance-free, petroleum-free formula that leaves the skin soft and supple and the velvety body butter soothes skin while indulging the senses. Top it all off with the illuminating powder and a swipe of pretty, pink gloss to complete your gorgeous glow. This set contains an 8 oz. Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter, 0.5 oz 100% Pure Argan Oil, 0.12 oz Argan Natural Volume Lip Gloss in Petal Pink, 0.28 oz Argan Illuminizing Powder, an a 1 oz Argan Balm.

(I'd legit swoon if I received this gift set! The Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter is full sized, and Sephora.com can't keep it in stock! Add to that the powder, balm, and lip gloss-if you can get your hands on this deluxe set, you'll be making someone a very happy camper!)

I hope you lovelies find these guides helpful. I will keep on the look out for goodies, deals, and gift sets from my favorite brands to share, and I hope that you get to take advantage of some of these great deals. This is the perfect time to introduce your loved ones to your favorites or take the opportunity to find a new favorite for yourself! Until next time...
