Shopping for the Season

As the holidays are approaching fast, I have started the daunting task of shopping for gifts. I consider myself very lucky to have family & friends that love the same things I do – needless to say, I think they have very good taste :)

I wanted to share some of the goodies I found at Target & Target.com. It’s my favorite place to shop since it’s so convenient and I can get everything I need in one place – talk about a time saver for busy moms!

Here are some of the things that I’ll be looking to gift for the holidays…

 

My Mother (60′s)

Pixi Fake Awake Kit $28.00
My mother is a bit of a makeup minimalist so this kit is perfect for her. Concealer duo, cream brightener, cream highlighter, flesh coloured powder & peachy powder, cheek & lip stain and a luminous gloss – it has all she needs in a travel friendly kit.
She’ll love the awakening look it gives – she has not had much sleep since she had me when she was 17 years old (and then had 4 more monsters after that)!

 

My Mother-in-Law (90 this year, sharp, strong & loves pampering treats!)

Comfort Products Foot Massager $19.90
What a luxury – when she sits down to read at night she can get a foot massage at the press of a button!

 

My Sisters (30’s)

Simply Shabby Chic Etched Bath Coordinates $9.99-$29.99
I fell in love with these vintage-looking bathroom deluxe organizers – I’m sure my sisters will too!

 

My girlfriends (40′s)

Pixi Get Gorgeous Kit $30
Some of my all-time favorite Pixi products are in this set which contains:

Succulent Lip Twin in Opal Orchid
Endless Silky Eye Pen in BlackNoir
Fairy Light Solo in Boho Bronze
Beauty Blush in Perkiest Pink

This Target.com exclusive set won’t be seen ever again and is an amazing value, so grab one while it’s in stock!

 

My Pregnant Friends (20-40’s)

Weleda Body Oil Essential Kit $14.99
Body oils are so luxurious for soon-to-be-moms to use. I think I definitely need one of these myself as well, even though I’m definitely not pregnant!

 

My Son’s Girlfriend (early 20’s)

Soho Picadilly Beauty case $32.99
We all know it’s hard to keep your makeup organized, but this traincase helps a lot. Trendy & practical with room for lots of makeup – what’s not to love?!

 

My Teenage Niece (15-ish)

Pretika SonicDermbrasion Facial Brush $45.99
This is great to teach teenage girls the importance of taking care of your skin from an early age.
Deep cleansing and massaging of skin is the key to clear & healthy skin, and it’s an important step in making any makeup you apply after look as good as it can.

 

My Preteen Niece (8-ish)

Lip Smacker Party Pack in Skittles $8.79
My view is no real makeup before 13 (and at 13 it’s a must to buy them a makeup lesson to learn age appropriate makeup from a professional). Lip balm or nail colour is ok.
These flavoured lip balms are nice because girls can play around with them but they are not too “makeup-y”. We want to keep them being little girls as long as possible! They grow up too fast nowadays!

 

My Baby Nieces (the last of my many nieces :) 2 cutie pies just arrived in my family!)

California Baby Shampoo & Bodywash
Love this natural baby brand – and love the calming lavender for baths before bedtime.
It even comes with a bubble blower so they are easily distracted when you want to wash their hair! :) What a genius idea!

You have to love being able to get the majority of your gifts in one place!
