This holiday season give the gift of relaxation. Every women need a little luxury in her life, and what better way to lift her spirits and battle SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) then with a pampering spa gift.

Perfumes can be tricky since most women have their favorite, but a bath or skin care set will do wonders for her skin and make her feel good after all the wear and tear of the holiday season. So if you’re stuck on what to get your Mom, Girlfriend, Aunt, Grandmother or any other woman on your gift list, just check out my personal favorite beauty picks of the year below.

Kai Bubbles & Light - I’ve been a huge devotee of Kai products for years now, and I’m not alone. Most of the A-list (and Oprah herself) count themselves as fans. So I was really excited about the launch of their new Bubbles & Light Gift Set which includes their new bathing bubbles and scented candle. It can be used as bubble bath or a foaming shower wash, and like all of their products: is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. If she’s not already familiar with its light floral scent, she’ll be hooked like the rest of us soon.

Shoshanna for AHAVA Holiday Travel Set – Help her look and feel good on the go with this exclusive travel set by AHAVA spa and designer Shoshanna. Take a dip in the Dead Sea without ever boarding a plane with these mineral-rich body lotions, hand, and foot creams. All conveniently packaged in a designer case she’ll use over and over again.

Pacifica Shimmer & Glow Beautiful Body Kit – Scrub away those winter woes with this tropical infused spa set. Let her be magically transported to her own island oasis with this intoxicating blend of coconut, Hawaiian Coffee and sea minerals. This is another favorite natural brand of mine, featuring a soothing body scrub, a calming lotion and a lip quencher that will treat her head to toe.

Kiehl’s Jeff Koons Limited Edition Creme de Corps -  Great for art lovers, activists or just anyone with dry skin, this limited edition body creme by Kiehl’s feels almost as good to give, as it is to get. Packed with nourishing beta-carotene and oils; it definitely packs a punch against winter skin. And this limited edition not only features some legendary artwork, but also goes toward a great cause. Kiehl’s will donate 100% of the proceeds to the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children. Giving never felt this good.
