52 - Monotheme Apotheose de Rose Gift Sets

Monotheme Apotheose de Rose gift sets

I started off on the right track: I advanced all my Christmas shopping sometime in October. When I kept bugging all of you to advance your gift shopping, I really was already doing mine! However, what I didn’t foresee was that I would suddenly join the corporate world again before this year ended, and then all of a sudden, I was swept up in the rigorous daily grind and world of never-ending deadlines, with very little time to finish my Christmas shopping—this time for new officemates!

And now, Christmas is over, and there are still some people on my list that I still don’t have gifts for. Good thing I already know where I can get gifts that are sure to be loved, used, and appreciated: Rustan’s The Beauty Source. Are you in the same situation I’m in, where you never really got to finish your Christmas shopping and you just buy gifts post-Christmas for the people you have yet to see? We’re in this together. Allow me to give you a sneak peek at what you can buy.

I got a preview of Rustan’s The Beauty Source’s holiday offerings at the premiere department store’s annual Beauty Addict fete, now on its third year, this time with a Jem and the Holograms theme. It’s that one day each year when the entire beauty complex—from the cosmetic and toiletry to the perfumery and skincare divisions—transforms into one fun fair, complete with games, giveaways, photo booths, and booze.

Among the beauty brands available in Rustan’s that you can shop fabulous gifts from are Chanel, Clarins, La Prairie, Sisley, Nars, Diptyque, Annick Goutal, Estee Lauder, Clinique, La Mer, Benefit, Bobbi Brown, Guerlain, Hermes, Murad, Perricone, Lancome, M.A.C, L’Occitane, and Acca Kappa.
