Decadently Affordable Stocking Stuffers
By Yasmin Jorge


We're down to the wire with the holidays - and the mad dash is on for thoughtful presents and stocking fillers. Here are some last-minute ideas that will make everyone feel special and smell yummy too. You'll be angels, not Scrooges, when giving these goodies.

The Body Shop® offers an extensive range of ready-made and personalized treats sure to spread seasonal cheer and joy. Heck, we're always happy getting products from this innovative, responsible retailer any time of year!

The new Candied Ginger Collection warms and invigorates with a therapeutic combination of sweet and spicy notes, while the Spiced Vanilla Collection cocoons and pampers with an indulgent blend of aromatic spices and oriental flowers. The popular Cranberry Joy Collection bursts with a mix of festive, fruity sweetness. Collection items include body butters, body and hand lotions, soaps, shower gels, lip balms, candles, home fragrance oils, and more - all scrumptious and sure to spoil.


The Body Shop products are available in-store and online at http://www.thebodyshop-usa.com.

Yardley soaps are a pleasure to give and get. These indulgent, vintage-chic, oval bath bars are made with natural antioxidants and creamy moisturizing properties to soothe and soften the weariest Santas. They are available in six classic botanical fragrances including English Lavender, Oatmeal and Almond, Lemon Verbena, Aloe and Cucumber, Cocoa Butter, and Pomegranate Rose.


Yardley soaps are available at all major drugstores nationwide.

Twirl by Kate Spade is so joyous and crisp, we may wrap bottles and put them under our trees. Here's a scent that will make you want to pick up that party dress and dancing shoes after exchanging gifts. Fragrance notes are pink watermelon mingled with blackberry and red currant, and enhanced with orange blossom, star jasmine, tiare flower and sweet magnolia. Twirl is finished with luminous musks and a touch of French macaron (straight from the patisserie, of course). Your partner will happily nibble on you, a modern day Holly Golightly - sexy, playful and ready to celebrate.


The Twirl Collection includes eau de parfum, body cream, body lotion, and shower gel. It is available at Sephora shops and online at http://www.sephora.com.

Happy holiday shopping, pretty elves. And stock these treasures for yourselves too.




The Perfect Last Minute Gift Idea - Holiday Sweets
By Candice Sabatini

Need that last minute gift, but still unsure of what to buy to thank them for all the favors? You owe them something and you know it. Face it, they have all the gizmos they want, and another tchotchke will only sit on a shelf and collect dust. Send them something delicious and irresistible now, and they may even consider inviting you to their place in the Hamptons next summer!


Sweet Sally's mission is "Yesterday's memories delivered today" and if you grew up in NYC eating amazing mandel bread, outrageous rugelah and oh...don't even get me started...those delicious black & white cookies, then this delivery-only bakeshop is calling out to you. Gift them the Hanukkah Bucket of Treats. Eight treats, a different one for each night of the holiday, includes individually wrapped mandel bread, coconut macaroons, big apple crackle, chocolate and raspberry rugelah, a jumbo chocolate chip cookie, and a brownie. And just for good luck, there's some chocolate gelt and dreidels too. And if your friends are waiting for Santa instead of Hanukkah Harry, Sally has been baking for them too, so send Christmas tree and poinsettia cookies that they'll rave about. All products are fully kosher and use no preservatives. Gluten free pastries are also available. Oh and order a little something for your home too - force yourself bubbelah.

Hannukkah Bucket $55. 00 http://www.sweetsallys.com


We all know Petrossian for their divine caviar and smoked sturgeon, and when it comes to sweets, again, they don't disappoint. There are lots of choices and hard to narrow it down to one fave. Try this Apres-Midi Tea Basket, a wicker basket filled with pretty tins of Earl Grey and Green teas, lemon scented sugar, a dozen yummy macaroons, eight marvelous Madeleines, a bar of light-as-air nougat, a pecan lemon cake, and peach coulis which is truly decadent drizzled over the cake. With a gift this elegant and delicious, you won't have to fish around for compliments.

Tea Basket $170.00 Petrossian, 911 7th Ave (57th St), NYC or order online http://www.petrossian.com
