1.) My First pick is the gift of pampering, because let’s face it, it’s been a long year and everyone needs a little pampering! Repeat this again!

I pick Urban Skin Care in Bankers Hill. Owners Larissa & Erin have been in business over 13 years and really know how to pamper their clients.

You know what I love about this place and what sets it apart? It is not crowded, and it is an intimate, personal experience when you go there. They do everything from massages, hand treatments, facials, (the GQ facial for the man in your life), YES YOUR MAN WANTS AND NEEDS A FACIAL LADIES!!! They can shut down the spa just for you. You get a comfy robe, a glass of champagne, a beer for the man, and guess what? No noisy crowded spa because that is not relaxing. They use organic, natural products and they will recommend them for you! Stop in and pick up a gift card ASAP!

2.) My Second pick is really going to wow your partner: It is the Most romantic present you can get. You get an A+ if you get this for your partner, trust me! It is The Pop Up Picnic from Lauren Sharon!
You pick a romantic location to have a picnic (popular areas are La Jolla Shores, Sunset Cliffs, or Balboa park)

You can also get a gift card for your partner and plan the picnic together! This is the Best San Diego date night hands down!

3.) My Third choice is for the man in your life. Every lady wants their man to look good and smell good right? Lord Wallington is lifestyle brand for your man.

A Local veteran owned company run by owner Immanuel Ontiveros, Immanuel makes custom bow ties, neckties, and pocket squares as well as grooming products for men. They are all made in the USA and are absolutely gorgeous. The craftsmanship and detail is superb! He even has a den area where men can buy cool goods for their home or office.
Some of my picks:

I love the gift sets which come with either a bow tie or a neck tie and some grooming products and they are reasonable! They start at $70.00!

4.) My Final holiday gift idea is for the woman in your life. We are hard to please I know but we want something unique. Trust me, Vavavida is just right for that lady in your life!

Owner Antoine Didienne created a collection of fair trade boho chic accessories hand made from women in countries around the world. A Portion of the proceeds go back to non profits that are helping empower woman which makes every lady feel good about a purchase like this!

My faves are:

the Boomika Rosecomb Ring (made of bone from cow in India) The detail is amazon and it is hand carved. $30.00
(A cool fact: cows are sacred in India so when one dies, they like to use the bones for a good cause and recycle them)

The other must have: Sari Pocket tote: Made of recycled Sari from India: lightweight and durable and the prints are amazing! Only $20.00
(your lady can pop this in her purse and pull it out for the evening to carry gym items or go grocery shopping!
