As we kick off December, I thought you'd enjoy some gift suggestions to jump-start your holiday shopping. Today, I'll start with some beauty goodies for the ladies with some great gift ideas for your friends, bridesmaids, sisters, mother, future mother-in-law, and all the other women in your life. Check back for gift ideas for brides, guys and couples.
For the on-the-go girl:
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant ($53) - Highly recommened by the ladies on The Knot's NYC message board and Weddingbee, Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant is a rice-based power you mix with water.
