The holiday season is upon us! That means exciting festivities, time with loved ones, and lots of gift giving! Luckily, gifting the people in your life with a little something special doesn’t have to be super stressful.
I’ve polled the experts (that’d be our trusted team of retail and service advisors!) to find out what products they’re recommending this year. Our answers—listed below—will have you making your list and checking it twice long before December 25 arrives.
Some of the most fun people to shop for are the ones we know best—friends and family! For the hair junkies, an appliance like a curling wand or ghd flat iron makes an awesome gift that not everyone would buy themselves. For makeup and skincare lovers, a basket filled with new products is the ultimate gift. Stop by and we’ll help you pick out products to include in a custom-made gift basket.
Want to give them something a little more special than just their favorite products? Opt for one of our limited-edition holiday gift sets! All of our holiday sets have an awesome value to give you the most bang for your buck during your holiday shopping and they often include exclusive products from some of our favorite beauty brands. Check out our recent blog post to find out what’s in this year’s gift sets.
And don’t forget about stocking stuffers! Many of the products we offer are universal—good for all skin and hair types. Grab a few minis of shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, moisturizer or cleanser for easy stocking stuffers. Small items like lip gloss, a rollerball fragrance, or nail polish make great options!
What better way to celebrate teachers than to give the gift of de-stressing? The Aveda Stress-Fix line offers body lotion, bath salts, cleansing oil, and more to help soothe and relax. Lavender runs throughout the whole line to offer natural stress relief. Pair a pampering product with a Cole’s Salon gift card for a quick and easy gift that any teacher would appreciate.
When it comes to coworkers, it’s best to stick with a gift that is good for everyone. Mini hand creams and hand sanitizers to keep at the office make great gifts. Oribe Cote d’Azur Hand Cream comes in 3.4oz and travel size—one to leave at your desk and one to keep with you. Eminence Tea Tree and Mint Hand Cleanser is a fun-sized hand sanitizer without the harsh chemicals that leaves hands moisturized and germ-free.
Our holiday hosts do so much for everyone—and while wine and flowers are a nice sign of appreciation, how about a more unique and thoughtful gift of self care? Whether it’s the gift of moisturizer for your host’s hands that have been busy in the kitchen all day, or a foot scrub for after the guests have left, you’ll be sure to find the perfect thank you gift at Cole’s.
Have someone in your life who seems impossible to shop for? A gift card is the most customizable gift that is good for everyone. Cole’s gift cards are perfect for anyone to stock up on their favorite products or use on that salon service they’ve always wanted to experience. As an added bonus this year—every $100 Cole’s gift card comes with a free gift!
While you’re thinking about everyone else this holiday season, remember to treat yourself! Indulge in some self-care with a massage, facial, or pedicure. Maybe even a gift set with your favorite beauty products would do the trick.
Do you have a mother-in-law, grandpa, or second cousin that you just don’t know what they like or need? Our retail and service advisors can help. Call in or stop by for a personal shopping experience to take the weight off your shoulders. Happy holidays!
