It is officially November, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Do you know what that means? It means it is almost Christmas. Yes, the holidays are about family and friends, time spent together, etc. etc. But let’s be real: We love presents. We really do, and there’s no point in denying it. However, unless you are a heartless ghoul, you understand the importance of giving as well. Don’t expect to receive anything if you don’t want to give!

While we agree with this policy, it’s understandable if you think the process is stressful. Heck, we aren’t mind-readers, and knowing exactly what to get your loved one is a hard task. But we’re here to help. To inspire you, we’ll pitch you themed ideas for great holiday gift. This week’s theme? Beauty!

1) Kahina Giving Beauty: Argan Oil $36+
