The Gift of Luxury

If you're looking for a special gift for a special friend, why not go whole hog?  If money is no limit, here some things to consider...
CLARISONIC Mia 2 - Black Cherry Croc Sonic Skin Cleansing System ($159)
Clarisonic cleansers have been around for ages, but many people (myself included) are reluctant to pick one up because of the cost.  Because of that, there are tons of imitators on the market. It's the holiday season, so why not splurge on the real deal? Mia 2, enhanced with two speeds, a two-year warranty and CLARISONIC's patented T-TIMER®, allows you to customize your skincare needs while still providing all of the sonic cleansing benefits and compact, travel-friendly design that you know and love from the original Mia. The essential first step in your skincare regimen, this goes beyond cleansing by using sonic technology to gently yet deeply cleanse pores without abrasion or harsh chemicals.

Sephora Collection Embossed Traincase - Black Houndstooth ($110)
I adore traincases. They look so professional. Seriously...they mean business! Carry your beauty collection in style with this set of luxurious train cases. Bathed in a glossy houndstooth pattern, these chic organizers will have you looking smart and sophisticated on the go. Pack the perfectly sized mini with just your essentials or house an entire beauty collection in the full-size organizer. The high-quality, durable cases latch closed to keep your favorite products safe and sound wherever you travel.

Full-Sized Bottle of Perfume (costs vary!)
Perfume is insanely expensive...well, good perfume.  If you know someone's favorite scent, buying them a full-sized bottle is a very luxurious gift.  It's personal and can be a defining thing.  I have my signature scent--I am not telling you what it is!--but buying the big size of it is pricey and seems greedy.  But having someone five me a full size? That would be the height of luxury! 

Mason Pearson Handy Mixture Nylon and Boar Bristle Hair Brush ($120)
Developed and patented more than 100 years ago, Mason Pearson's hair brush is the ultimate grooming tool. Only the finest, premium-grade boar bristle, which is gentle to the hair and scalp, is used. Brushing with a Mason Pearson hair brush is the best way to distribute the natural oils while exfoliating the scalp and stimulating circulation of the hair follicles. The patented pneumatic cushion conforms to the contours of the scalp, which optimizes brushing with minimal effort. All Mason Pearson hair brushes are handmade in England. The animals are not harmed in the collection of the boar bristles. A nylon cleaning brush is included. This mixture has a nylon 'spike' to facilitate brushing through thick, textured or wavy hair, yet may be used on all hair types.
