Oh Em Gee! It’s Dec 9 and you have a little more than two weeks to get your act together. And by “get your act together” — I mean, complete your holiday shopping. Leading up to the holidays, I have provided several holiday gift guides to help you navigate the gift giving scene. Click here, here, and here for gift ideas for makeup, bath/ body, and affordable fragrances respectively.
But you know what? I’m just a chatty Blogger Girl who knows a thing or two about beauty. I’m no taste-maker extraordinaire. . . like say, Robert Verdi. So to further assist your holiday shopping efforts, I give you Robert Verdi’s Holiday Gift Guide. From the Do-It-All Mom who selflessly gives all year ’round, to your Glam Gal Pal, and everyone in between — Robert has you covered.
…and away we go!
