There’s really no better gift for another woman-whether she’s your mom, a friend or a daughter, than beauty products. Luckily, every holiday season most beauty brands (if not all) take this into account and offer up pre-packaged gift sets at prices that just can’t be beat. So how do you decide which to buy? We suggest the ones that give back.
For instance, Aveda-a brand that partners with charities year-round, has created eight limited-edition sets that benefit communities in Nepal. The Holiday 2011 Collection features some of the brand’s all time favorite products gift-wrapped in lokta paper made by indigenous papermakers in Nepal.
It’s a program Aveda has worked on over the past four years that has created jobs for more than 3,800 papermakers and has helped over 1,000 Nepalese families buy food, clothing, fix their homes, and best of all-send their children to school. All because we treat ourselves to these fabulous gifts.
Take a look at the offerings on Aveda’s website to find out which sets are available. One of our favorites is Shine Brilliant that comes with two Aveda Lip Shine glosses made with ingredients like beta carotene and jojoba oils with a vanilla, cinnamon-peppermint taste. They make your lips glow without feeling sticky and make a great stocking stuffer.
