Best Gift for Best Friend:

Viva La Juicy Noir, Juicy, Holiday Gifts 2013, Holiday 2013

Juicy Couture’s Viva La Juicy Luxe Limited Edition perfume is pure luxe in a bottle.  A super-rich glam Parfum edition of Viva La Juicy with highlighted rich berry, honeysuckle and sandalwood scents, even the packaging screams va-va-voom with its black bow around a white enamel bottle and luxurious satin box.

C&E La Source beautiful hands, Crabtree and Evelyn, Holiday Gifts 2013, Holiday 2013

Or, you could perhaps gift her Crabtree & Evelyn’s La Source Beautiful Hands.  The package contains everything you need for beautiful nails.  It features Snowdrop Nail Lacquer, Petal Pink Nail Lacquer, La Source Hand Therapy, La Source Nail & Cuticle Therapy and Holiday Nail buffer.

Best Gift for Friend Who Looks to Cook:

Black apron, Holiday Gifts 2013, Holiday 2013

We’ve recommended a lot of cookbooks over the years, but this year fell in love with the Barbara Ann Company’s sequined black apron.  Think the “little black dress” of aprons, this piece is eye-catching, sophisticated and perfect for entertaining.

We think you might be interested in knowing about a product sure to catch people’s eye this season – a classically styled black sequin apron. Think: the little black dress of aprons.

Another gift a cook is sure to love is the KLEVA Sharp knife sharpener is a dream come true.  It uses tungsten carbide technology to extend the life of almost any knife, including hardened steel knives and even serrated blades (like bread knives and hunting knives). It’s instant and quite miraculous.  A must-have for any kitchen.

Best Gift for Chocoholic Friend:

Purdys HimalayanPinkSaltCaramels, Purdy's, chocolate, Purdy's chocolatier, holiday gifts 2013, holiday 2013

Purdy’s Chocolatier has the most decadent Christmas Himalayan Pink Salt Caramel.  Wrapped in stunning gold Christmas packaging, it is the perfect size and taste to brighten anyone’s day.  The official description reads, “Mr. Purdy’s original caramel recipe from 1907 forms the base of this delectable treat. The caramels are then enrobed in creamy milk chocolate or decadent dark chocolate, and sprinkled with Himalayan Pink Salt.”

Best Hostess Gift:

The Body Shop’s Ginger Sparkle Reed Diffuser releases the pleasant, fresh scent of ginger throughout the day.  It can last up to 8 weeks and is the sort of gift a hostess and open and use immediately during the party or save for later.

Purdys EnglishToffee, Purdy's Chocolatier, Holiday Gifts 2013, Holiday Gift Guide 2013, Holiday 2013

Or, for something sweeter, Purdy’s Chocolatier’s Christmas English Toffee, packaged in gold wrapping with a cheerful red ribbon, is sure to please any hostess, whether she chooses to serve it at the party or indulge in some post-party.

Best Gift for Friend Who is Down on His/Her Luck:

Rhonda Byrne started a massive laws of attraction movement with the release of her book and movie The Secret.  Her latest book “Hero” continues that tradition with sayings and stories from successful people.  It’s a great self-motivator and a reminder of the infinite possibilities in and of life.

Best Gift for Your Fashionista Friend:

This holiday season, sparkling or ideally diamonte straps are very trendy.  They are typically placed on a little black dress, but if you are more in the mood to make it a gift for your boyfriend, then they can be placed on lingerie easily as well.  Rio Rox has come up with some striking chunky ones that look elegant yet fashion forward.

Best Gift for An Injured Friend:

Dr Cool, Holiday Gift Guide 2013, Holiday Gifts 2013, Holiday 2013

Dr. Cool Recovery-On-The-Go Wraps are life-savers when you are injured.  Simply wrap what aches in the wrap and if you wish, place the wrap in the freezer first to truly ice down your injury.  The wraps are very effective and come in some very fashionable colours including hot pink.

Best Gift for A Metrosexual Friend:

absinthe-manicure-gift-set, Body Shop, The Body Shop, metrosexual, Holiday Gift Guide 2013, Holiday Gifts 2013, Holiday 2013

The Body Shop’s Absinthe Manicure Gift Set makes for an ideal present for someone who appreciates nail care.  Absinthe is an anise-flavoured spirit with a masculine, pine with hint of mint scent.  Combined with the woodsy green look and the overall packaging of the set make it work very nicely as a man’s gift, although of course it can be given to a woman as well.

Best Gift for a Friend Who Likes Baths:

ginger-sparkle-reed-diffuser_z, Holiday Gifts 2013, Holiday Gift Guide 2013, Holiday 2013

LUSH Cosmetics’ Melting Snowman Luxury Bath Melt softens the skin with its magical formula of cocoa and shea butters combined with almond oil.  Spicy cinnamon and clove oils are mixed with sweet orange and lime for a festive scent.  One very cool feature of this product is that when you drop the bath melt into the tub, it dissolves like a real snowman, carrot nose and all!
