For her

Holiday 2012 gift guide for her by Heather B. Armstrong

A lot of what I’m recommending this year are things I already own and use on a daily basis (see: mascara, conditioner, makeup wipes, wallet). They are a tiny bit more expensive than products with less of a brand name, but those are the day-to-day things that need to be reliable. And I’m much more willing to invest in those little things than spend an exorbitant amount of money on a single piece of clothing I might wear once. These are gifts that will be put to use.
