So skip the jet lag altogether with these Genestra Sleep Gummies instead! Besides helping reset the body’s sleep-wake cycle, these delicious gummies help you fall asleep faster and sleep longer.
24″ Rx Matrix Hollow Roller
Like you, your family and friends might sometimes find themselves feeling tense and stressed. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of a holiday season and neglect the body’s needs. An effective foam roller can help relieve muscle tension, improve circulation, improve flexibility, and promote relaxation. Foam rollers are also great for getting a workout!

The right lip balm is like a best friend—it’ll never fail you, and it will always be there to comfort you.
This winter season, Jack Black’s soothing Moisture Therapy Lip Balms SPF 25 make a great gift. In addition to providing long-lasting hydration and smooth lips all year-round, these award-winning flavours also protect lips from the sun. Remember to use them daily to maintain smooth lips throughout the colder months.
Tom Ford Oud Wood Candle
While you’re stressing about what to get your loved ones this holiday season, remember that scent plays a big role in mood and memory. A scented candle is a great way to help relax the mind while keeping things fresh.
A luxury brand like Tom Ford is known for its quality products that are presented with exquisite packaging. The Tom Ford Oud Wood Candle has an exotic blend of smoky woods including rare oud, sandalwood, rosewood, Eastern spices and sensual amber—revealing oud wood’s rich and compelling power within an opulent composition.

Dressing up for Christmas is a fun way to get into the holiday spirit. If you know someone who loves dressing up, the Remington® Shine Therapy™ makes a great gift!
Its Advanced Ceramic plates use nine times more ceramic to provide even, consistent heat. These ceramic plates contain a micro-conditioner, antioxidant-rich Argan oil, and protein-rich Keratin, ensuring that smooth results are achieved without damaging the hair. With this styling tool, they can achieve their preferred look, whether they want straight, shiny hair or sultry, smooth curls.
Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash Duo
If you know someone who suffers from dry skin in the winter, this is the perfect gift. The Aveeno® Skin Relief Body Wash Duo is a rich, creamy lather that cleanses and moisturizes, with no harsh chemicals that irritate sensitive skin. This gentle formula removes dirt and impurities from the skin without disrupting the skin’s natural moisture barrier, leaving it feeling soft and smooth afterward. A perfect Secret Santa gift or stocking stuffer!
Vivier Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30
Don’t think you need sunscreen because it’s winter? Think again. While UVB rays are less intense during the colder months, they’re still high enough to burn and damage the skin.
Vivier Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 is a lightweight, water-based sunscreen with an SPF 30 broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Plus, it’s infused with Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5 to moisturize and protect against free-radical damage while absorbing quickly into the skin. The result is a light formula that feels great on your face — and helps prevent wrinkles!
The Vivier QuintiSerum™
Your friends probably already have plenty to stress about this holiday season, so don’t add to it by having them worry about their skin. This concentrated multi-purpose antioxidant serum is designed to target the advanced signs of aging and reduce further signs of aging. The Vivier QuintiSerum™ is enriched with 15% Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and a combination of 5 proprietary peptides known to boost collagen production, improve skin elasticity, and strengthen the skin barrier. Fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed, and the skin is hydrated, firmer and younger looking.
Endy Weighted Blanket
The holidays are a time when people often find themselves with more stress than usual, due to the many activities that are oh-so-present during this season. If you’ve ever felt like you needed someone to wrap you in a warm hug, then the Endy Weighted Blanket is what you need.
The Endy Weighted Blanket is designed with soft pockets of weighted glass beads that are evenly distributed throughout the blanket’s quilted core for balanced, relaxing pressure. This creates a sensation of overall calm and relaxation that encourages feelings of reduced stress and anxiety—allowing you to sleep through the night without waking up in the middle of it!
