Bath and Body Gift Set

I bought this as a birthday gift for a friend to help her de-stress and she loved it as soon as she opened it! When it arrived, it was beautifully packaged and set up perfectly so you could see everything in it. The bag/case it came in was also lovely! I had looked up a few lavender sets but this was by far the best!

The Bath and Body Gift Set is a lovely and thoughtful gift. Any friend who’s crazy about spa and body care will love this set. It features a 200ml shower gel, 110ml body lotion, 200ml bubble bath, 2 extra large 150g rose bath bombs, and 80g leaf shaped bath soap. The ingredients are from the highest quality – each product is 100% paraben and cruelty-free.

Le Creuset Stoneware 16-Ounce Honey Pot

Love this! It is a pretty small pot, so it doesn't take up much room. The honey dipper holds a lot of honey without dripping quickly. Love this honey pot!

The Le Creuset Stoneware 16-Ounce Honey Pot is a lovely birthday gift for that friend who has a sweet tooth. This Le Creuset pot looks gorgeous for storing honey, but it is also oven-safe, microwave-safe and dishwasher-safe. This pot holds up to 16 ounces of honey in a non-porous enamel finish that resists odors, chipping, staining, and cracking.

Black Metal Tabletop Jewelry Organizer

This was a great thing to add to my dresser! If anyone has read the magic art of tidying up by marie kondo - this is totally approved! A clear dresser makes me a happier girl and this actually helps me wear my jewelry b/c it's right there in the open!

The Modern Black Metal 3 Tier Tabletop Bracelet & Necklace Jewelry Organizer is a fantastic way to organize and makes a lovely gift. Featuring 3 vertical poles at 3 different heights, this organizer has a classic black finish that fits any décor. Each pole of the tree supports a ball-capped crossbar that can be used to hang bracelets and necklaces.

Rose Quartz Roller for Face

I LOVE this roller! Not only does it work exactly as I was hoping, the rose quartz looks better in person. It's smooth, not squeaky, and has my skin already feeling smoother. Getting some for my best friends for Christmas!

The Rose Quartz Roller for Face is a lovely face massager that makes a fantastic birthday gift for anyone who takes skin care seriously. This roller is made of pure rose quartz, that eliminates skin puffiness, fine lines, and dark circles. By rolling on the skin surface, the movement improves circulation and pushes toxins through the lymphatic system.

Slip Sleep Mask

A silky, soft, comfortable mask for a first time user!

The Slip Sleep Mask makes such a fantastic birthday gift for anyone you know that treasures their sleep, or who needs to block out natural sunlight. It is an anti-aging mask that provides the ultimate combination of thickness, softness, shine, and durability. Made of a natural, high-grade, long fiber mulberry silk, this mask doesn't grab the hair or draw moisture from the face like cotton.

GH GOLD HORSE Slim Blocking Card Holder

This is exactly what I wanted. Super slim, with a ton of card slots, a clear id slot, and other pockets for a few bills/cash. I used it while traveling through Europe and it was perfect for that.

The GH GOLD HORSE Slim RFID Blocking Card Holder is a gorgeous and slim front pocket wallet that makes a useful gift. This rose gold wallet is super thin and feels amazingly soft - it is made with a durable and beautiful full grain genuine leather and features 4 card slots, 3 larger slots, and an I.D. holder.

High Density Anti-Tear Exercise Yoga Mat

Very soft, comfortable. My entire family is using it, even though i purchased it for my self. Great product. Everybody should own one.

Friends who practice yoga will find this mat comfortable and roomy - it features a high-density foam material with double sided non-slip surfaces. This mat also features a secure strapping system and is extremely lightweight, great to transport and store.

Relaxing Bath Salts & Essential Oils

It has a pleasant lavender fragrance and provides a very soothing bath experience. I would recommend this product. This bath salt really helps relieve my sore muscles. I'm not sure if it's the Arnica or the dead Sea salt in it makes a big difference compared to plain epsom salt but this definitely works better and I don't need to use as much of this compared to the epsom salt.

Friends who love to lounge and relax in the tub will adore the Relaxing Bath Salts & Essential Oils. This gift will get them to enjoy lovely bends of dead sea salt, Epsom salt, soothing oils, and lavender. These oils and salts are amazing to nourish, hydrate, and soothe anyone’s skin and soul.

St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse

Self tan that lasts for a week and I exfoliate my skin almost every time I have a shower. You can have a perfect tan even only after an hour. I am pretty pale and the result looks very natural, no orange-effect at all.

The St. Tropez Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse is a thoughtful gift for a tan craving friend. This bronzing mousse is super lightweight and easy to apply, delivering an ultra-even all-over tan. The velvety mouse gives a tan that lasts for days, and the tanning develops from lighter to darker depending on how long the mouse is left on the skin.

Remedy Health Foot, Heel and Callus Repair Kit

The heal socks have done wonders for my feet in just a few days. I learned quickly to put them on right before bedtime as walking with them on is not that comfortable. But between the lotion and socks my feet are softer and less pain.

The Remedy Health Foot, Heel and Callus Repair Kit is a thoughtful gift for that friend who loves to have well groomed feet. This kit features an easy-to-use overnight foot moisture spa treatment, which heals dry feet, calluses, cracked heels, and more. The aloe vera based lotion moisturizes the feet during the night while the two trans-dermal cotton gel heel sleeves keep the cream in its place.

Rolling Pins Cookies

This embossed rolling pin works great! I tried it with both regular cookies and fondant, the designs were looking beautiful in both. Rolling pin works great, it's everything that I thought it would be and shipped right on time.

These embossed rolling pins are a great gift for bakers, carved deeply so they don’t have to push hard to decorate the dough, and it’s made of laser-engraved, natural beech wood. It is easy to clean and dry, requiring only ventilation to dry completely before storing.

Chardonnay and Merlot Wine Soap Set

These soaps smell amazing! I bought them as a gift and they could not be more perfect. They are a nice size. Not too big and not too small. The whole mailbox and house smell heavenly just having them here.

The Chardonnay and Merlot Wine Soap Set is a lovely birthday gift for that wine-loving friend. This set features two 4-ounce bars of soap, beautifully labeled and packaged together in an organza bag with a satin bow. These soap bars have a wonderful fragrance that is a mix of white grapes, berries, and a touch of rich oak.

This is a beautiful, creative pendant. It is so pretty in person. I bought it for a gift along with matching earrings. They arrived quickly in the mail. I highly recommend these products and may buy some for myself.

It can be given as a gift to a beloved friend or family member - the real dried flowers are preserved in resin and surrounded by a sterling silver setting.
