One of my new favorite shops and sites is Violet Grey. She does these terrific beauty sets. This one is Post Party Recovery. Everyone can use a little of that this time of year. You can also stick your head in that champagne bucket filled with ice. Or do both.

So you’ve got four days until those gifts have to be at a their destinations.  Thank heavens for the internet.  You can get most things sent overnight. Perfect for those who hate to shop and or procrastinators.   But you better start now if you don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.    Here are some ideas from me, cause, well,  I do this every year – not to mention I love to tell people what to buy.

 

Happy Shopping….

A set of hunter green luggage. It will remind one of Christmas  it gets used.  Make it super special and maybe throw in some plane tickets.
