Holiday gift giving can get insanely expensive. And while it might be nice to give ultra-luxurious "designer" beauty products, you don't really need to break the bank. Instead, go no further than your friendly, neighborhood Target for some incredible beauty gifts that will make the recipient feel great and that won't hurt your wallet.
As I've mentioned before, Boots is a well-known drugstore chain in England. When I lived in London, a trip to Boots was every bit as satisfying as a trip to the Body Shop, and it usually cost a lot less. Now, Boots products are for sale here in America, at Target and CVS. Boots products are consistently excellent. They have several different lines of products, and are really worth checking out. They combine interesting ingredients, package their goods well, are high quality, and are very affordable.
This holiday season, Boots has some gift sets that make for a brilliant way to get acquainted with the brand. Pick up one of these for a gift, or for a gift to yourself:
Boots N0. 7 Lip and Body Shimmer Set, $9.99 at Target: Includes bronze and champagne lipglosses and white and bronze body shimmer. This one is a lot of fun for the younger set and will make your recipient sparkle on New Year's Eve!
Mediterranean Travel Selections, $11.99 at Target: I apologize that I don't have a picture for this gift set, because it's among my favorites. It includes travel sizes of their Bergamot Body Wash, Lemon Verbena Bath Cream, Walnut Hand and Nail Cream, and Almond Body Butter. This would be a perfect gift if you have a friend who travels a lot. I've personally tried all the items in the set, and let me just say YUM! They smell great and my favorite is the Almond Body Butter. And at this price, you really should consider picking one up for yourself!
Boots Fresh! Selection Box, $14.99 at CVS only: This is such a fun kit! Make bath time special with Sweet As Money Bath Milk, Strawberry Surprise Body Cream, Chocolate Fix Body Wash, Banana Bonanza Bath Crystals, Pink Grapefruit Swirl Soap, and an apple-shaped body polisher. This is so sweet, so cute...perfect for that 'tween in your life...or for someone who could use a little sugar this season.
Mediterranean Bath and Body Treats, $19.99 at Target: Again, you really can't go wrong with the Mediterranean line of products from Boots. This deluxe set contains full sizes of Bergamot Body Wash, Walnut Hand and Nail Cream, Lemon Verbena Bath Cream, and Almond Body Butter as well as a body brush and two votive candles.
