BeautyPopStop's Holiday His & Hers December Gift Guide Vol 7

Some of the products in this post were provided by PR/the brand for consideration

I just wanted to take a quick minute to let you know that while our holiday gift guide will continue to run as planned, it may be another week or so before posts in other series begin going up as I've been dealing with some health issues. I have an appointment tomorrow that should (hopefully) push me in the right direction and get me back to 100% soon. We'll see! I wanted to let you know in case you've been hoping to see even more from me before Christmas!

It's that time of year again! Each year BeautyPopStop publishes a holiday gift guide geared towards men and women, featuring a variety of exciting products. The Hubs and I have put our heads together once again (don't forget to check out his men's section above for men's products) and we have some pretty amazing gift ideas to share with you this year!

Each edition features one gift idea for women (or general beauty lovers), one gift idea for men and one stocking stuffer (items $25 and under).

Fresh Set of 5 Sugar Rush Gift Sized Lip Treatments

If you follow me on instagram you've probably seen me post pictures of Fresh's Sugar lip treatments more than once. They are my favorite lip balms! They're thick, hydrating, smoothing, long-lasting ... just perfection. This set is absolutely fantastic! There's a nice mix of clear and tinted balms and flavors. You could easily give this as one gift or break up the set and add them to multiple gifts--which is often what I do for variety. While I love them all, Sugar and Sugar Rose are my 2 favorites--though it's a hard choice! 

This set includes:
  • Sugar
  • Sugar Rose
  • Sugar Honey
  • Sugar Cherry 
  • Sugar Berry


This set retails for $42

Where to Buy

This Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment set is available through QVC's site

Nook HD 7-inch Tablet/Reader

We are a Nook family. We had the Nook Color and recently Patrick surprised me with a Nook HD as an early Christmas present and I love it! He actually wants one for himself--we'll see what turns up under the tree this year! For that reason, it's made our "his" gift suggestion for this volume.

If you have the Nook Color then the Nook HD will feel like a noticeable upgrade. The actual tablet is sleeker and less bulky feeling, the screen is more crisp and it's far faster. The browser is actually really decent, unlike our experience with the Nook Color.

Why do we prefer the Nook HD over other tablets at comparable price tags? Honestly, it's partially because the boys and I are such avid readers so the instant and seamless integration with Barnes and Noble is fabulous. Also, having the option for expandable memory is key in my opinion. The lack of a camera is annoying, but with such amazing camera phones and an actual camera within our constant reach, it's something we're willing to sacrifice.

While this may not be everyone's first choice, our experience with it has been a great one and given it's budget-friendly (for a tablet) price tag, the Hubs and I think it's a great gift option for the men (or women) on your gift list. 

Note: Our Nooks have all come with a 1 year warranty and we have actually used it in the past and had one of our old Nook Color tablets replaced when it died on us. It's fairly hassle-free, but if you plan to hold off upgrading for a couple years you may want to consider additional coverage. 


The Nook HD retails for $129

Where to Buy

This can be purchased directly through Barnes and Noble's website.

Pacifica Body Butter Collection

I absolutely love Pacifica, but their body butters are some of their stand-out products in my opinion! They smell amazing and hydrate well--paraben-free to boot! This set of 3 (2.5 oz each) tubes of body butters is a perfect stocking stuffer, whether you put an entire set in one stocking or split them up between 3!

This set includes the following scents:
  • Tuscan Blood Orange - moderate, fresh orange smell
  • Hawaiian Ruby Guava - subtle guava and something else I couldn't recall
  • Indian Coconut Nectar - super subtle coconut


This set retails for $14.99 (currently on sale at Target for $13.49)

Where to Buy

I believe this has sold out on Pacifica's site, but it is available as of the time of this post through Target's site. 

What do you think? Will you be consider any of these gifts for those on your holiday list?
