GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
People again rave about and enjoy the benefits of naturally hypoallergenic silk pillow cases. Won’t they love a gift that eliminates face creases and bed head/frizzy hair?

Several lower priced silk pillow cases received great ratings as well..
Does sleeping on silk really help your hair and skin?
When it comes to bed head and wrinkles, yes! Studies show that friction from tossing and turning causes creases in the skin, but a silky smooth surface minimizes this effect in the long run. Similarly, hair glides over this type of fabric, so you’re less likely to wake with frizz and tangles. As with most claims, be wary of unrealistic promises and don’t expect major changes liker fewer breakouts.
Your eco conscious or office gift recipient might appreciate living beauty. Gift easy care succulents, like the Living Quart Succulent . No fuss plants in unique shapes and unusual colors. Keep indoors or on patio. Gift several green or colorful succulent plants in a terrarium or planter; solo or in an interesting grouping. Or give them a whole tray full to flourish with the Unique Succulent Collection of 12. With care, this gift should flourish year after year. Several other varieties available.

For those forever moisturizing their hands, gift the Lanolips Hand Cream Intense or Lanolips Everyday Hand Cream. Not only will the aroma delight, so will the cream made with heavy duty lanolin.

makes moisturizing lip and all over creams.

Face rollers like the Rose Quartz Crystal Facial Roller are all the rage for increasing circulation to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles; reducing puffiness under eye circles, etc — a mini facelift every day! Both women and men use and love this. Rose quartz, often an ingredient in skin care products, allegedly improves circulation and calm complexion. Since these have been around in Chinese skin care since the 17th century, hard to argue with the value of the stone. The Jade Rollers are most popular as that was the original stone used; and thus cost more ($63)
For more “manly” beauty, the Men’s Grab & Go Essentials or the Mighty Moisture Set make perfect gifts. Grab and Go offers head to toe hydration from face wash to hand cream to body scrub. The Mighty Moisture Set also covers him head to toe, including the lips. Both include 5 products. Combo Tip: He could use either with the Roller for maximum effectiveness.$48 Free shipping Nordstrom
