For those of you that are either hosts or are always attending events or parties you know how essential it is to have your go to’s of perfect gift giving options. My rule of thumb for gifting has always been to only gift something I would want to be gifted or buy myself so here is a list of a few of my favorite Beauty items that not only do I adore using but also adore gifting. Happy gifting!

I recently discovered L’Occitane’s Beauty line through their newest Spa by The Bay at The Ritz Carlton San Francisco and these products are incredible. After experiencing this facial I wanted to share some of these amazing products with friends and below are a few of my favorite gift giving goodies from L’Occitane including the L’Occitane Shea Travel Treats Set $16, L’Occitane Beauty Collection $34 & L’Occitane Divine Skinecare Gift Set $190.
2. Jo Malone London
Starting during my retail days in New York working at Bloomingdale’s I fell in love with Jo Malone London fragrances. Not only because they have such lovely, elegant scents I’ve been using for years but I really like the brand as a whole. Their stores are beautiful offering amazing customer services and I really love the simplicity of their elegant cream and black packaging. So of course Jo Malone London has become a brand not only used daily in my life but also a great option for gifting. A few my favorite scents are Wild Bluebell & Nectarine Blossom & Honey.
3. Benefit Cosmetics
As a San Francisco girl I’ve become a regular at Benefit not only for their great eye brow service but also for their Rolling Lash Curling Mascara and fabulous eye They’re Real! Big Sexy Eye Kit. I can’t live without this lengthening mascara so it seems like the perfect gift for any gal.
4. Malin + Goetz
During my recent stay in London at The Mondrian London which you can read about here I got hooked on the Malin + Goetz products. This great Malin + Goetz Essential Kit includes all the toiletries you could need. And if you’re into candles like I am, the Votive Candle Set is great so your lucky gift received can try all three of these fabulous fragrances. It’s also nice to pack on a trip so wherever you are you have a lovely scented fragrance making you feel at home.
5. Bobbi Brown
I’ve been a fan of Bobbi Brown cosmetics since I was a young girl and met Bobbi at the Winnetka Book Stall (a local book store where I grew up). I adore all of her products and below are a few great ones I can’t live with out which means I also love giving as gifts. The Luxe Lip Color, Cool Dusk Eye Palette (limited edition) & The Party to Go Lip & Eye Palette.
I recently learned about a new product line Retrouve developed by beauty visionary Jami Morse Heidegger and her husband, Klaus Heidegger, for their own personal use. The line wields new technologies and high-octane active ingredients in superior concentrations and unprecedented textures to set a new standard in luxury skincare.
Trailblazers in the cosmetics industry, Jami and Klaus steered the family’s skincare line, Kiehl’s Since 1851, into a cult beauty brand after taking over the reins from Jami’s father, Aaron Morse, in 1988. I have been using the below products for a few months and I love how silky the serum and moisturizer leave my skin. I also adore the light yet effective face wash.
Another favorite of mien in my beauty regime is Tatcha. I adore their Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil and Supple Moisture Rich Thick Cream. The Tatcha Bestseller kit (shown below) is great so someone new to Tatcha can try everything and decide what product is best for you.
