If you’ve been putting it off, it’s time to crack down and get serious about gift buying. I know it can be a bit of a daunting task to come up with gift ideas for so many different people, but I’m hoping this gift guide will inspire you to get the job done!
Hubby/BF: Blu-rays are the way to go. If your guy is a Bond fan, Amazon.com has a fab deal on the Bond 50: The Complete 23 Bond Film Collection with Skyfall. This series is hot, hot, hot for the holidays! And if your guy is like my guy, there is nothing quite a wonderful as a new flatscreen to watch those Bond flicks on! For the techie, check out an iPad Mini, This is not only the best version of the iPad so far but also has incredible apps options and a robust media ecosystem. You really cannot go wrong with that one. Hubby swears by it (but not at it; it’s so easy to use!) If your man is a fitness buff he will love the new Nike Fuel SE, the hottest fitness device on the market! For the stylishman, a gorgeous cashmere sweater will have him looking great and staying warm!
Sister/Best Friend: Every woman has a soft spot for jewelry, and whether your sister/bestie is a necklace, bracelet or earring girl The Silver Loft has gorgeous one-of-a-kind handmade pieces every girl will love! AND most of them can be personalized!! Makeup is another way to go—some of my favorite shadows and lipstick/glosses have come to me as gifts. Tarte is topping our lists here at She She Me. We’ve in love with their line of Maracuja skin care and makeup products, which are nutrient rich and hydrating. And how familiar are you with Too Faced? I use the Better Than Sex Modern Matte kit every morning.
Mother/Mother-in-Law: If she lives in another state/country, consider a webcam. She’ll love the idea of being able to have a face-to-face chat, especially if you have little ones who don’t get to see their grandma much! Handbags are another great option for Mom, and if you want to be forever known as the "favorite" a sweet cashmere scarf is sure to do the trick! For the "foodie" mom, Lucy Jane's Best Cookbook — a collection of tried-and-true holiday favorites from appetizers to main courses to desserts — will be a sure-fire hit! And what mom/grandma doesn't love a personalized Christmas ornament?
Father/Father-in-Law: If he doesn’t already have one, get that father a digital frame! And make it even better by pre loading it with family photos. Another cool electronic gift is a weather forecaster. He can keep it on his desk or dresser and always know whether it’s a good day for golf! For the fashion conscious father/father-in-law, a fabulous retro-dress shirt from Jack Robie (your dad will get the reference to Cary Grant, thus boosting your street cred several levels). Word of advice: you'd better snap one up for your hubby or boyfriend as well!
Coworker:Treats are a favorite gift at the workplace. And lucky for those of us who are a bit kitchen-challenged, there are many different sources for "home-made" goodies!
Gifts for the Kidlets: For younger kids, Babylegs make a fabulous gift! So cute and practical. Wii games are a great idea for kids 4-6 and up; Ultimate I Spy is fun for the whole family. Teens love gift cards, and frankly—so do I. Win-win.

Le Couvent Des Minimes
400 years ago, a convent was built in the village of Mane in the South of France to shelter the botanist monks of the Minims, who used their considerable knowledge of plants to tend a garden of curative herbs and flowers. Centuries later, the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary continued the original convention of cultivating beneficial ingredients to help strengthen and restore those in need through food recipes. The sisters used the power of plants to nourish and heal their community, restoring well-being in a spirit of generosity. This emphasis on nourishing care through nature inspired Le Couvent des Minimes’ own simple yet powerful natural fragrance and skincare recipes, the basis of a collection of efficacious formulas that draw on the heritage and traditions of the convent of Mane.
