Today’s blog will be about what to get someone you really don’t know well. For example your brother’s new girlfriend or for a co worker. Here is my top 3 picks in bath and body, makeup and nails.
Gift Ideas for the Bath and Body lover:
So I picked up a Christmas soap and lip set from Peculiar Potions. A etsy store where goth meet Harry Potter.
Here is what the box looks like.
Here what it looks like inside. For my soap I pick fireside cordial which smells like a smoky raspberry. Which I love. Also got two lip balms in Eggnog and Champagne. It normally comes with a candy cane one which I opted out for the champagne one.
The box cost 12.96 Canadian with shipping cost 20.56. Came in two weeks.
