Ask Belle: The Best Gift Ever
Dec 8, 2010
Thanks for the gift guides. Today’s were great. Just one question, what is the best gift that you’ve ever received?
Removing priceless, sentimental gifts (like my Papa’s Navy peacoat) from consideration, the best gift that I have ever received is my Clarisonic. Nothing makes me feel more gorgeous and refreshed than freshly scrubbed skin, and your skin will never be cleaner than when you use the Clarisonic.
If you need a gift for your mother, your sister, or your best friend, the Mia is a great gift. Toss in a great beauty product (serums absorb better post-exfoliation) like Ole Henriksen Truth Serum or Kate Somerville Quench, and you have a Spa Day in a Box. What woman wouldn’t want that?
And men, if you need a stocking stuffer for your wife, fiancé or girlfriend, this is a great choice. Now, it cannot be your primary gift (jewelry and shoes, gentlemen, jewelry and shoes). But if you need to augment the main present, a Mia is an awesome choice. (And no, no woman I know would look at this gift and say, “My husband thinks I have bad skin!” as she bursts into tears. But that’s because I know women who don’t over-interpret their man’s every move. So plan accordingly.)
Until someone Santa drops a $10,000 shopping spree in my stocking, this will continue to be the Best Gift Ever. I use it every day, and every time I use it, I think, “Man, I love this thing.” It’s my electronic skincare Superman.
