Not sure what gift to give that glamour girl or guy in your life?
In "The Early Show"'s "Early Holiday Unwrapped" series, beauty expert Jenn Falik's shared some great grooming gift ideas for anyone on your last-minute shopping list.
But do beauty products really make good gifts?
Falik said you can give some beauty items that everyone will be happy to receive.
"I really do advise you to stay away from perfumes because that really is a subjective gift and something personal to each individual," she said.
But what about men and beauty products -- are there really things for them they will appreciate?
Falik said men shouldn't be scared of the word "beauty."
"So many of today's products are made for men by men who really understand a man's grooming needs," she said. "Keep it simple and make it something he doesn't have to return!"
Products Falik featured on "The Early Show":
Falik's take: "Since we know she needs her beauty sleep, this is a comfy but stylish sleep shirt and pj's inspired by a men's button down. I am also a big fan of bundling gifts -- a nice personal touch -- so bundling the night shirt or pajamas with the very cool Molton Brown Aroma Rocks is a nice touch -- they are beautiful pebbles soaked with sleep-inducing scent, designed to be kept by your bed."
Smartbox Serenity Kit- $119 at www.smartbox.com
Falik's take: "So cool- brand new, you give the gift of an activity -- all paid for, and the recipient can choose the pampering experience of their choice with the Serenity SmartBox. Each Smartbox is presented in a CD-size box featuring a color guidebook with full details of each activity or escape. The Serenity Smartbox offers beauty, health and wellness treatments including, Vichy showers and ice cream pedicures, champagne manicures and lemongrass body scrubs, and more."
Stila Makeup Player- $69.90 at http://www.stilabeautytube.net/default.asp
Falik's take: "Part makeup artist-style train case, part media player docking station with speaker system, this portable vanity blends cutting edge technology with Pro Artist expertise, giving girls the tricks and tools that they need to do their makeup however they wish.. Simply download free tutorials from the StilaBeautyTube onto a mobile device, dock it into the Player, and unleash your inner artist with the press of a button."
The Teen Vogue Handbook: An Insider's Guide to Careers in Fashion-$14.95 at Amazon.com
Falik's take: "Teen Vogue grants budding stylistas an all-access pass into the high-profile and glamorous world of fashion.
With superb photos, interviews with industry icons such as Marc Jacobs, Bruce Weber, and Patrick Demarchelier, and six sections that include information from editors and assistants, the handbook serves as a link between the style-conscious girl and the seemingly impenetrable fashion world."
ULTIMATE GLAMOUR CONNOISEURS
Nars 15th Anniversary Palette- $75 at www.sephora.com
Falik's take: "This is for a true beauty maven, a collection of Nars' most popular shades ever (it even brings back some that have been discontinued but women still pine over). It is limited edition -- and sure to become a coveted beauty collectible."
Sephora Men's Deluxe Fragrance Sampler- $50 at www.sephora.com
