If you want a foolproof gift, go with beauty products. I don’t know any woman who wouldn’t love a box of French-milled soaps or a bottle of Jo Malone perfume. There is simply something about colorful eye shadow palettes, creamy lotions and trendy nail polishes that brings joy to sisters, mothers, colleagues and other girl friends in your life. (Men, do not try this at home, though—anything bigger than a little blue box will not go over very well.) Click below are some of our favorite beauty gift items.
