Holiday Gift Guide: The Vintage-savvy Romantic

 Sparkle, Neely, sparkle: This is the 2011 BBJ Holiday Gift Guide. For more gift-worthy items for everyone on your list, check out my other offerings.

Remember learning about “if-then” statements in school? I’m going to let you in on a little secret: If your giftee likes a good ruffle in muted tones, tends to favor a slightly retro style of dress (though not enough to be considered a retrophile), and pops into Anthropologie at every possible opportunity–you can bet she likes a modern apothecary-style beauty product and these holiday offerings totally fit the bill. Here, my favorite holiday offerings to dress up her boudoir (she uses that word) in style.

Mor Queen Of Hearts Gift Tin ($40) A rectangular tin houses all you need to cleanse and hydrate throughout the winter (or even the summer, where it currently is in Australia, where this beauty brand is based). She’ll avoid opening the beautifully bedecked blood orange soap, hand cream and lip macaron balm in blood orange as well (an olfactory trip to the Italian Riviera, BTW–tell her to pack her virtual passport). Best of all? The tin is perfect for storing hair accoutrements post-holiday season.

Tokyo Milk Roller Parfum De Cigarro in Truth ($24) Tokyomilk is one of my favorite boutique beauty brands and this season, they’ve packaged their latest scents in convenient glass roller-balls, but didn’t skimp on the allure of alchemy. Truth features fragrance notes of Blood Orange, Osmanthus, Crushed Cedar, Sugared Vanilla. It’s excellent for stocking stuffers, as well.

Lollia With Faces Aglow Gift Collection ($60) Romantical girls tend to favor candlelight because it encourages handsy behavior and makes any gal look perfectly made up. I personally wish I could dim the damn lights everywhere. She’ll adore this duo of  fabulous fragranced fire-bearers in two thrilling scents: Another Quiet Day and Sleeping Under The Stars.
