Holiday parties are about to ramp up and you don’t want to arrive empty handed. A hostess/host gift goes along away and doesn’t have to break the bank. Taking  a few extra minutes to wrap the gift in tissue and twine makes it extra special. Below are a few of our favorites options for every type of host!

 

Classic gift

A set of coasters is a classic gift that every house needs. Keep it festive this year with these gold etched CB2 coasters. Not only can they be used at the party but throughout the entire season.

 A Gift for any Host

If you don’t know your hostess the safest gift is always a candle or bottle of bubbly. Our favorite candles this year are made by Tatine. These comes individually wrapped with a quote on each candle.  For the bubbly, get festive with a bottle of Prosecco or if you’re feeling extra exotic bring Cava.

Outside of the box gift

There is no easy way around keeping the bathroom smelling fresh, especially when throwing a holiday party. Leave it to AESOP to create Post Poo drops. Aromatic, botanical, deodorizing drops not only smell terrific, but the packing is chic and discreet.

 

For the Outdoor Lover

Whether your host/hostess is a golfer, gardener or sun worshipper, a hand cream is always a good fit. The tops of the hands get dry, dehydrated and sun damaged. Hands to Heart is the perfect gift for a man or a woman.

The Gift of Sleep 

Studies have shown a dark room is more conducive to a good night’s sleep. A silk eye mask is the perfect addition to anyones night time ritual. SLIP silk eye masks are available in a variety of colors and will satisfy the lightest sleeper’s eyes.

 

The holiday season has started which means lower temperatures, holiday parties, sugar and late nights. This year it is easier than you think to keep skin glowing and young. Take the time to recognize the culprits that make us look drab and tired and then fight them with this years season saviors

The NO glow culprits

Here at Goldfaden MD, we love all things GOLD. You may have seen us rocking the gold tips manicure on our Instagram from time to time, so we wanted to share it with you. Below you will find simple steps on how to get these gold tips at home.

What you’ll need to get your gold tips: bandaids (for shaping purposes), Goldfaden MD Vital Boost (for cuticle moisture), gold nail polish by a brand of your choice.

Now for the steps…

1. Make sure your hands and nails are clean before you begin. Remove all existing nail polish with natural nail polish remover (Here are some tips from Good Housekeeping on finding a natural, non-toxic nail polish remover).

2. Apply Goldfaden MD Vital Boost to each of your cuticles for extra moisture.

3. Apply a bandaid to your nail with the curved edge facing up. Leave a little room between the tip of the bandaid and the tip of your nail for a perfectly curved tip.

4. Apply nail polish to your nail – going from the edge of the bandaid up toward the tip of your nail until the entire nail tip is covered.

5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 until each of your nails is dry. Carefully remove the bandaid and apply a top coat.

And you’re done! Be sure to share your final results with us on FacebookTwitter or Instagram using the hashtag #GoldfadenGoldTips
