Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual.  One of the best makeup books/manuals for any makeup lover, in my opinion.  Most women agree it’s important to gain some knowledge regarding how to properly use different products and tools, and especially the importance of proper skincare.  I believe this book does a great job of covering these topics and offers plenty of pro tips for beginners and anyone wanting to explore the makeup realm.

Clarisonic Mia1.  A great tool in aiding in a proper skincare regime!  This is definitely an investment piece.  Appropriate for men and women ages 17-45.

Kate Spade Wallet.  I think everyone should invest in a well-made and durable wallet.  A good quality wallet can last several years and is what most people consider a daily essential.  In my opinion, worth investing in.

iPad Mini.  The highest priced of all the gifts idea I’ve gathered, but I truly believe in the practicality of them.  Perfect for students, businessmen and women or your tech savvy friend/boyfriend/girlfriend/husband or wife!  Great for listening to music, sending e-mails, taking notes, browsing and of course endless entertainment via the Apps!

Happy shopping, everyone!  🙂
