Have you hit that point in the holiday shopping season yet where you have half of your list crossed off but the other half stares back at you just as blankly as you stare at it? You know what I’m talking about, the family and friends that you never know what to buy, so you end up buying them a gift card to some major retailer and end up drowning your guilt from your uncreative gift giving in spiked eggnog all season long. Look, we’ve all been there and not one single one of us wants to pop out of our jeans thanks to a billion calorie beverage that’s only good when you add too much rum to it.
In an effort to make our holiday shopping a little more efficient, I have put together my first annual Ultimate Gift Guide! I have hand-picked 8 companies that I think can fulfill on even the toughest of gift recipients!
This holiday, solve every beauty junkie’s frustration with luxury beauty tools by ADROIT Beauty™.

You put on a little Tanceuticals lotion at night and 6-8 hours later you wake up with a gorgeous, natural-looking tan that doesn’t wash off. And you never spend a second in the sun or a tanning bed!
The secret is an all-natural tanning ingredient called DHA (dihydroxyacetone). You see, this ingredient interacts with the dead skin cells on the outermost layer of your skin. This reaction actually gives those cells a beautiful bronze color.
It’s completely safe and lasts until all those dead skin cells are eventually sloughed off– about 5-7 days.
It’s winter. We all want to be tan. Done, done, and done. Besides, Tanceuticals is my favorite self tanner right now, and a great way to keep a safe glow throughout winter. It produces a dark, natural tan and smells freaking awesome! It’s been my go to, so this is the perfect gift for those of you who like to stay tan all year round (and who doesn’t?). Our friends at Tanceuticals is also offering my readers 15% off of their purchase when you use code JENNY15 at checkout.
