Are you freaking out because the holidays are here and you haven’t even begun to shop for everyone on your list? These days we are busier than ever and we simply don’t have enough time to hit the malls and fight through the crowds. So I’ve put together a last minute online gift guide for everyone on your list. Whether you are buying for your best friend, your parents, your significant other, your co-worker or anyone else in your life, they are sure to love something on this list!
The Beauty Addict – DERMAFLASH $189.00
Sure you could buy make-up, but I’m sure your beauty lover has more make-up than she could ever possibly need. Instead buy something for the skin so she glows even without make-up! My new obsession is the DERMAFLASH Facial Exfoliating Device, which comfortably and discreetly sweeps away skin imperfections, dullness, and peach fuzz with a subtle sonic vibration. I was recently invited to a Meet and Treat and fell in love with how easy it is to use, my instant after glow and that DERMAFLASH was made specifically for women! In just three simple steps, it gently removes dead cells, debris, and fine hair from the cheeks, jawline, lip area, chin, and forehead immediately unveiling smoother, more vibrant, and younger-looking skin.
Your Favorite Fashionista – Zoe Report Box of Style $99
The Craft Beer Lover – Tavour $25 to $200
If you have a craft beer junkie in your life then look no further than Tavour! This is not your run of the mill beer of the month club. Tavour partners with award-winning craft brewers and gives their members access to beers you cannot get anywhere else. Each month you get notified of new releases and you order what you want! Craft beer nerds are all about limited releases, so this is the perfect gift for them. Tavour sent me a box to sample some of the current releases and I discovered an amazing new sour, vanilla porter and an IPA! All you have to do is buy a gift card, pick the amount between $25 and $200 and your e-gift is on its way!
The Person Who Has Everything – CrossPens $50 and up
I was recently asked by CrossPens to be a part of their ‘Long Story Short’ campaign and choose something personal to engrave on my pen and then share why. I knew right away what I wanted it to say of course, my life motto which my lovely readers know is ‘Shine Bright and Do you’! I then shared my story on Instagram of what this means to me and I can’t thank you enough for all of your kind feedback. I absolutely adore my personalized pen and know this is the perfect gift for that person in your life who has EVERYTHING!!! So I highly suggest you send a personalized gift. Engrave a pen, watch, desk set or leather accessory from Cross and find this person impressed!
And if you haven’t yet seen it, here is my #writegift story here:
Happy Thanksgiving Eve everybody! I’m so excited to announce I’m partnering with @crosspens to share my #longstoryshort At the age of twelve, I sacrificed a ‘normal’ childhood to pursue and achieved my dream of being a professional ballerina. Despite the overwhelming odds, I knew deep down that entertaining audiences and being creative was my true passion. The main lesson I’ve learned along the way is that true success and happiness can be found by believing in yourself and living authentically. That’s why my motto and what I engraved on my pen is ‘Shine Bright and Do You’! #writegift #giftidea #ad #stuartsays #styledbystuart
Your Favorite Foodie – Gardel’s Chimichurri Sauces $16.99 and $9.99
Let’s be honest, do you sometimes dread going out with your favorite foodie? They are ordering things off the menu you’ve never heard of … so they can of course be intimidating to please during the holidays! This year impress them with Gardel’s Chimichurri Sauces. I recently dined at Carlito Gardel’s restaurant in West Hollywood and I honestly did not want to leave. I was in such food bliss and enchanted by the family who owns and runs this incredible Argentinian Steakhouse. They shared a great story about how when they were still in Buenos Aires, the process of creating these chimichurris really brought the whole family together!
There are two different sauces. Gardel’s Chimichurri Auténtico and Gardel’s Chimichurri Spicy Balsamico. Enjoy the Auténtico on beef, wild game, seafood and vegetables, or even on its own with fine breads and savories. Elevate the experience using the Spicy Balsamico with a subtle blend of spice and sweetness in this proprietary twist on a classic. And luckily for my fellow Amazon Prime members, you can get both sauces on Amazon clicking the links below:

The Animal Lover – David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Adopt An Orphan Project Minimum of $50
Whether this person is an animal lover or likes to give back to the world, donating to DSWT’s Adopt an Orphan Project is an incredible gift to give. For a minimum of at least $50 you can contribute to the DSWT’s conservation activities, which has achieved world-wide acclaim through its hugely successful elephant and rhino rescue and rehabilitation program. The Orphans’ Project exists to offer hope for the future of Kenya’s threatened elephant and rhino populations as they struggle against the threat of poaching for their ivory and horn, and the loss of habitat due to human population pressures and conflict, deforestation and drought.
I was recently introduced to this incredible organization at a one-night-only exhibition of founding conservationist and international wildlife photographer KT Merry of Render Loyalty original series of profound film photographs featuring threatened elephants in Africa and give back to the organizations who save them. You can donate to this important cause online easily using your credit card or paypal account right here and easily to choose to donate in someone’s name.
