Last day of Holiday Gift Guides! Today’s edit focuses on the beauty outliers – fragrance, hair and body care. Fragrance can be a tough one to gift but I’m confident that the two picks I selected will be universally loved. My hair care picks focus on efficiency and texture and my body care picks are about smelling amazing and having soft, supple skin. I hope my lists have made your holiday shopping a breeze (or inspired you to ask Santa for something extra special). Here are my fragrance hair and body care gift ideas…
1 – Body Care Travel Kit, 2 – Fragrance (Oribe), 3 – Texture Spray, 4 – Fragrance (Tom Ford), 5 – Straightening Brush, 6 – Brazilian Body Set, 7 – Flat Iron, 8 – Hair Turban, 9 – Styling Set, 10 – Almond Set
Tree Hut makes the highest rated body scrub at Ulta, so when I saw it in this sweet $14 set complete with body wash, body butter, body lotion and the scrub, I knew it would be a great hostess gift, stocking stuffer or emergency Secret Santa item. Get it here.
I got this fragrance as a gift last year and I constantly get compliments on it. If you’ve ever smelled Oribe hair products, THIS perfume is the same scent! Described as bergamot, white butterfly jasmine, and warm sandalwood, it’s a crowd pleaser.

Always trying to find the next best beachy texture spray, I picked up this IGK spray at Sephora a few weeks ago and have to say… it’s amazing. I’ve enjoyed drybar’s, Ouai’s and amika’s in the past, but the IGK is the MOST texturizing spray I’ve ever tried. Includes ingredients that actually hydrate your hair, as well. Get yours at Sephora here.
I’m in love with this fragrance, but this is certainly one you save for a sale or gifting occasion because it will run you $225. Smells like literal heaven and sunshine in a sexy vacation kind of way; I have yet to meet someone who DOESN’T love this scent.

As a huge fan of amika, I recently tried this brush and love the convenience of it! If you don’t like the super pin-straight look of what a flat-iron does to your hair, but need a little smoothing after blow drying – this is for you. If you let your hair air dry before bed, but need some polishing in the morning – this is for you. It heats up to 450, has a ceramic base and bristles and provides a shiny, frizz free finish. I’m IN LOVE with how quick it makes straightening/smoothing out the ends of my hair. Order from Sephora here.
Everyone is raving about this Brazilian Bum Bum body butter for its delectable scent and super hydrating, skin-firming results, so when I saw this duo, which includes a body wash in the same scent and the firming cream, I thought it was a great deal. Get yours here.
It’s no secret this is the best flat-iron on the market lately. Everyone loves it – garners a 4.6/5 rating on Sephora.com – because it’s just as effective at straightening your hair as it is in creating waves because of its curved design. A little pricier than other flat irons, this is definitely a solid choice for someone who loves styling their hair. Get it at Sephora here. If sold out at Sephora, try this link.
Ok, so this may just look like your standard Turbie Twist/Turban thing, but it’s not. I liked the idea of Turbie Twist, but did anyone else notice that they started smelling like mildew after maybe two uses!? I tried this Aquis one and it’s BETTER than Turbie Twist because it absorbs more water, plus I can use it way more times than twice before it needs to be washed. Total thumbs up… plus, it has a cute print. Pick it up here.
I really like the Ouai hair product line. Currently, I have their hair oil and texturizing hair spray, but I’m about to try the wave spray, too. This is a great mini gift set for the giftee who loves having Kardashian-esque hair (Jen Atkin, Oaui founder, is Khloe Kardashian’s hair stylist). Get it here for $25.
L’Occitane’s Amande (almond) line is my all time favorite in body care. It smells so light and clean. There isn’t anything from the amande line I don’t like – hand cream, body concentrate, shower oil, dry oil – it’s ALL beautiful. I loved this set because of the value. Use the shower oil as a body wash, shaving lotion or even shampoo… then finish off with the veil which has a very microfine shimmer. Order here.
Ok, everyone. That wraps it up for my holiday gift guides. I can’t believe Christmas is NEXT WEEK. Kind of glad 2016 is almost over, though. Very much looking forward to 2017. I hope this fragrance, hair, and body care gift guide helped you and please share if you think it will help someone you know 🙂
