The pampering gal's holiday gift guide
Some gals prefer diamonds and bling for the holidays, but some of us would much rather get a day of pampering instead of another ring or bracelet. For those of you shopping for a pampering princess in your life or just for those of you looking for inspiration for your own wish list, SheKnows presents the pampering gift guide you won't want to miss!
Philosophy Baking Spirits Bright Set
Who doesn't love to fill their shower time with baking scents? We sure do! This tempting trio ($25, macys.com) features three shampoo/shower gel/bubble bath combos in delicious baking scents -- cinnamon apple streusel, Christmas cookie and maple pecan crumble – and comes in an adorable package that reminds us of baking Christmas cookies as a child. Add this one to that list, ladies!
Spa & Wellness Gift Card by Spa Week
Yeah, yeah, we know a gift card doesn't top the list of most creative gifts, but who in their right mind would choose creative over a day of sheer bliss? Yep that's right ladies, we're talking a day of pampering at the spa of your choice! Spa Week, the masters of all things pampering, is now offering its spa gift cards (accepted at over 4,500 spas and wellness facilities across the country) at major retailers and we are definitely adding this little baby to our list. Plus, now through Dec. 31, you can get a $100 gift card for just $89.99 and a free box! Are you listening Santa?!
Bliss Mistle "Toes" and Two Turtle "Gloves" Gift Sets
We're betting that any pampering princess in your life has at least heard of Bliss Spas. Heck, she probably spends most of her free weekends there! For the times when she can't make it out to the spa (we shriek at the horror!), give her one of these adorable gift sets. Mistle "Toes" ($48, blissworld.com) will transform your dry winter feet with a spa-strength super-smoothing foot duo (socks and cream) and Turtle "Gloves" ($48, blissworld.com) will soften your rough winter hands with its gel-lined glamour gloves and high intensity hand cream.

We love gifts that come in pretty packaging, so when we first laid eyes on this little baby, we were excited to say the least. This gift box ($95, lalicious.com) from the all-natural brand is filled with pampering surprises like full sized Whipped Soap, Sugar Souffle Scrub, Body Butter and Body Oil. You can choose from eight scrumptious scents including Peppermint and our fave, Brown Sugar and Vanilla. This gift is a no brainer choice, really!

Check it out yourself or give the gift of banished dry hands this winter!
Shoshanna for AHAVA Travel Set
We've been a fan of AHAVA for a while, but the brand has won us over even more with this gorgeous pampering set. AHAVA has partnered up with Shoshanna to create a limited edition travel set ($35, ahavaus.com) featuring a colorful, cute travel case and a moisturizing trio (Mineral Body Lotion, Mineral Hand Cream and Dermud Enriched Intensive Foot Cream).
