It’s so very early to worry about the gift giving season isn’t it? But I really want to get a jump start on Gift Giving Guides this year and one particular guide that REALLY needs an extra early preview is my Unique Guide to Gift Giving via Etailers.
I love Etailers ummm wait scratch that….I’m addicted to Etailers. What are Etailers? Etailers are basically smaller shops or homegrowns as I refer to them. It’s normally run by a single person sometimes two and products are handmade in most cases from scratch. These products include bath and body goodies, perfumes, perfume oils, and in some cases even cosmetics. I love purchasing gifts from Etailers because it makes the gift giving experience really unique and special because seriously some of these items just can’t be purchased in any store or shop you’d find at the mall.
I’m also starting this guide a little earlier because many of these shops are popular and they sometimes have a lead shipping time which takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks (or more) to get your items since they are being freshly made. I’ve personally shopped from these stores myself however I can’t vouch for their shipping time so please if you’re gifting someone do take the shipping time into consideration prior to ordering. Again, this is why this particular gift guide is going up early.
In other news…
I’ll be doing other gift guides over the next month and into December. Hopefully you’ll find each of these guides a helpful way to discover some great presents for friends and family. If you have an idea for a particular guide I’d love to hear it, do comment and share.

Anyone get a chance to see the new Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Body Double Mists yet? Victoria’s Secret has a cute display of three new scents available for the Holidays that are priced at 3 for $25.
Take the jump to learn more and see photos.
My views have not changed much in regards to Lush Solid Perfume but I’m making an exception to my rules because damn I heart Snow Fairy.
Check out my thoughts on the brand new Lush Snow Fairy Solid Perfume after the jump!
Although I’m generally a foody, fruity, sweet type of girl when it comes to fragrances one floral note that gets me each and every time would be roses.
Jump ahead to think pink with Jo Malone Red Roses Cologne.
When it comes to makeup, fragrances, shoes, bags….ok…let’s leave it at makeup and fragrance for now. When it comes to these things the Muse tends to come down with a bad case of the pokemon disease. This disease makes her want to collect items…very bad for your health my friends. Now this could be an eyeshadow….she can’t just haul the green shade she really has to haul the green, the blue, the pink, the purple, and the yellow, another words, the entire collection.
If you happen to have this disease the only known cure is hauling all of the items you are currently wanting. Take for example the Harajuku Lovers Fragrances…god those things are so bloody addicting. Seriously, do I have to pick just one? Heck No! I want them all!
Now you can have them all at a really good price too.
Considering it’s the big Sephora Friends and Family Event you can haul the brand new Harajuku Lovers Snow Bunnies Gift Set for $80 bucks. This knocks down each girl to $16 each. The normal cost for the set is $100 but you can use the FF2009 promo code and snag ’em for 20% off which breaks them down to $80 for all five scents plus they come in a little hat box. I went ahead and hauled them so I can have the hat box as I already have the fragrances. As for each of the girl’s I’m keeping them to use as host gifts for Christmas parties, or to give to my mail girl, etc….why not break them down and give them as gifts right? Only problem is I’ll be passing on the dreaded pokemon disease to the person I give the one fragrance too….I imagine they’ll soon want to haul all of ’em like me.
Oh well, it’s the though that counts, I can’t account for the sickness that comes with it.
You can haul them now at Sephora.
