Holiday Gift Guide: Bath & Body

Welcome to Beauty Addict's 2008 Holiday Gift Guides! Between now and Black Friday, I'll publish nine gift guides covering everyone on your list, from bath lovers and fragrance junkies to teens, party girls, and men! Read on for nine picks for the bath & body addict in your life:

Jo Malone Bath Oil Collection ($85) A luxurious gift that will make any bath-phile squeal with glee. Six mini Jo Malone bath oils in Orange Blossom, Grapefruit, Pomegranate Noir, Lime Basil & Mandarin, Amber & Lavender and White Jasmine and Mint.

Philosophy Warm by the Fire ($25) Just one of many delicious holiday offerings from Philosophy, this little set offers Double Rich Hot Cocoa 3-in-1, Melting Marshmallow Cream Body Souffle, and Smores Lip Shine.

Best of Bliss Set ($55) A most excellent sampler, with these 5 can't-miss products: Lemon + Sage Body Butter, Hot Salt Scrub, High Intensity Hand Cream, Triple Oxygen Energizing Mask, and The Youth As We Know It Moisture Cream.

Bath & Body Works Sleep in Heavenly Peace Set ($35) I haven't yet met anyone who doesn't love the delicious, warm scent of Warm Milk & Honey from B&BW's Aromatherapy Sleep line. And you get plenty of it in this set! 8 oz. Luxe Bath, 2 oz. Body Lotion, 4 oz. Pillow Mist, 0.3 oz. Instant Aromatherapy in Sound Sleep and a 6" White Lambie plush.

Frederic Fekkai La Creme Luxueuse ($65) I think I first discovered this incredible body cream a few years ago on Oprah's Favorite Things list, and I've been hooked ever since. It's dense, packed with shea butter, and smells...well, it smells expensive. And the jar is elegant. That makes it good gift material in my book!

The Body Shop Cranberry Joyful Times Set ($35) Cranberry only comes around once a year at The Body Shop, and it's so festive and pretty. Set includes 1.7 oz Cranberry Body Butter, 8.4 fl oz Cranberry Bath & Shower Gel, 2.5 fl oz Cranberry Body Polish, and a Cranberry Mini Votive.

Molton Brown Intoxicating Davana Blossom Foaming Bath Oil ($68) This is so good, I can barely even describe it. It indeed smells absolutely intoxicating, and works as either a bath oil or as a shower oil (think a more luxe version of my beloved L'Occitane, also featured here). The bottle is gorgeous, big (300 ml) and impressive. If you're feeling especially generous, pick up the Davana Blossom set, which includes the bath oil plus the eau de parfum and the body creme, for $170.

L'Occitane Almond Body Care Set ($60) Most of you know that the Amande Shower Oil is one of my all time favorite products -- and I've gifted it to friends many times, always met with raves. This set gets you the Oil, Almond Milk Concentrate (light body cream), and a mini Almond Delicious Paste (scrub).

Lush Christmas Star Set ($39.95) Truth be told, any of the Lush holiday sets would make a great gift, but I especially like this one for its glittery star shaped box. Houses Angel's Delight and Rock Star soaps (both in star shapes), Gold Star and Jingle Star bubble bars, and Christmas Party and Twinkle and bath bombs.
