4)    Stock their beauty bar: Grab a pretty basket and create a unique gift for mom.

5)    Gift Card: Can't decide? You can’t go wrong with the gift of choice! 

Treat Your Lovebird This Valentine's Day with Our Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and so are all the things that come along with it. You know what we mean—everywhere from the local market to Lenox Mall is drenched in goodies for your sweetheart. But more and more, Valentine’s Day is moving away from the traditional and towards something a little more meaningful. Don’t get us wrong, we’re still talking indulgence, just not in a trying every chocolate in the box kind of way. Yep, this year our gift guide includes things to make your other half feel good—from our favorite at home treatment kit to any of our services or products:

1. Bkr Bottles - Bkr claims that their water bottle will “change the way you drink water forever,” and the funny thing is—it will. The little glass bottle was born out of a desire to get away from cheap, wasteful water bottles, instead drinking from something clean, reusable and stylish. Bkr isn’t only a bottle, though. It embodies a lifestyle, one that thrives on cool minimalism and all things pretty. A beauty essential, it’s perfect gift for the uber stylish, yoga pro, or, you know, anyone who drinks water. And with many Bkr bottles boasting a heart design, it’ll add a little oomph to your Valentine’s Day.

2. Intraceuticals Essentials Kit - From our favorite “no-tox botox” Rejuvenate range, the Intraceuticals Essentials Kit is the epitome of the line’s mantra: revive, replenish, repeat. First, the Rejuvenate Daily Serum deeply hydrates, instantly improving skin’s texture and creating the ideal canvas for later makeup application. Next is the Rejuvenate Hydration Gel, which further hydrates, working in tandem with the Daily Serum to visibly reduce signs of aging. Lastly is Rejuvenate Moisture Binding Cream. It protects against free radicals, continues to nourish and enrich the skin, as well as defends it throughout the day. All a lesson in Hyaluronic Layering, the Essentials Kit is a gift we’d love to give ourselves, so it’s perfect for your sweetheart.

3. Aviary Gift Card - When you think about it, it’s really the perfect gift—especially when a little pampering is involved. Whether you end up treating your other half or your bff to one of our services including a facial, haircut or massage, or any of our products (dreamy day creams from Dr. Hauschka or soothing serums from Sircuit, anyone?), it’s sure to make them smile.

So whether you’re looking for a loved one or you just want to treat yourself this year, we have you covered.

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!

last-minute gift guide (don't worry, we've got ya covered)

As always, Christmas has snuck up on us and it being a mere week away doesn't mean we've got all of our gifts to give under the tree. Don't fret, though. We have something to bring a smile to everyone on your list. We promise. For the skin conscious - This is an easy one thanks to Clarisonic. The skin cleansing system who boasts the mantra, "Clearer skin is healthier skin," has been a favorite of ours for awhile. It works by using a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second, which, in turn, removes 6X more makeup and 2X more dirt than our hands ever could. There are options, too, with the Clarisonic Pro (perfect for the queen bee – as it is one itself – and is only available through estheticians), the Mia 2 (Pro's baby sister is the pick for the globe-trotter, complete with a handy travel case), the Clarisonic Opal (palm-sized and designed to help around the eyes) and the Clarisonic Face and Body (the ultimate all-over skin treat).

For the lock lover - A Mason Pearson hairbrush is one object every woman longs for. After all, we know the feeling. The not mass-produced, coveted brush originated in London in 1885 and hasn't changed much since – meaning it's an investment that will last for Christmases to come. The brushes come in four sizes, eight colors and three pads including Boar Bristle (for fine to normal locks), Boar Bristle and Nylon (for normal to thick locks) and Nylon (for those super thick locks) and promises to clean hair, stimulate the scalp and produce a healthy sheen. Yes, please, Santa.

For the one who has it all - Sometimes gift cards get a bad rap, but there's nothing bad about treating someone awesome to a hair cut or color, massage, facial or waxing complete with a therapist who will customize each treatment to address specific needs and wants. It'll even score them one of our favorite above mention gifts – without the stress of picking it out. And to that, we cheers the season of giving.
