    Lollia By Margot Elena Relax Duo

    Smashbox Cosmetics Try It Kit

    Caudalie Grape Cure Kit

    When holiday gifting or any gifting time comes around, I try to figure out what will be most memorable or used by those on my gift list.  Now, we all have a few beauty fanatics on our list, and you usually know just what their current beauty obsession is at the moment.  Whether it’s skin, makeup, hair, or other areas of focus, I always seem to find a few great beauty gifts at Birchbox.

    For the beautyistas on my  list, I found a few items I think they will love.  I ordered the Lollia by Margot Elena Relax Duo, Smashbox Cosmetics Try It Kit, and the Caudalie Grape Cure Set.  Beauty kits and duos make perfect gifts because the gift IMG_7508recipient receives a few items they like or new items to try.  If you’re gifting more than one item, kits also make great stocking stuffers.  The great thing about Birchbox beauty gifting is that the site has holiday gift options organized by gender, price, gifts sets and stocking stuffers to make your beauty holiday gift shopping simple and easy.  You can also select gift subscriptions, and gift subscription gift cards.  Since it’s that time of year where we all will be wrapping gifts, I thought I would share a few gift wrapping tips in today’s “Lifestyle Guide”.

    Lifestyle Guide:  Holiday Gift Wrapping Tips

    Start Wrapping Early – Eliminate the Christmas chaos, and a gift wrapping time crunch, and start wrapping gifts as you buy them.

    Store Wrapping Supplies In A Gift Wrap Bin Or Cabinet – Keep your tissue paper, ribbon, and wrapping paper organized IMG_7524and easily accessible in a single bin or cabinet.  This will lessen the chance of supplies from previous years getting lost and going unused.

    Use Double-Sided Tape – This tape is perfect for holiday gift wrapping because it stays put and out of sight.

    Recycle Gift Wrap – Don’t throw away all of your used wrapping paper and ribbon, instead, run it through a shredder and use it for lining gift boxes or bags.

    Use Color-Coded Wrapping – If you’re wrapping a lot of gifts this year, assign each family member a different color paper, and you won’t even need gift tags.

    Use Kraft Paper To Wrap Gifts – Kraft paper is an attractive and sturdy option to traditional gift wrap.  After wrapping , simply add special trimmings and gift tags to make your package even more special.

    Use Less Wrapping Paper – When wrapping the perfect box, 7494 R (1 of 1)remember, less is more.  The key to wrapping boxes is to not use too much paper.  The excess paper causes the package to be bulky and sloppy.

    I hope these “Lifestyle Guide” tips have given you a few ideas that will help make your holiday gift wrapping easier.
