On December 25, everyone will be running to see the goodies under the tree. But with these treats I’ll be running to my stocking!

Lip Service
Who can resist the tingle of C.O. Bigelow Mentha Pops Mentha Lip Shines or this six-pack with all your favorite flavors ($18, bbw.com)?






Glitz & Glam
For the fashionista who always has the latest handbag du jour, give the Luxe Link. Just attach the glitzy gizmo-some designs are adorned with Swarovski crystals-to any table to hang your purse in style ($35-$79, luxelink.com).





Eco Find
Going green never looked so cute when you tote around town an Envirosax bag ($8.50-$24.95, envirosax.com). There are so many designs to choose from and each holds up to two plastic grocery bags worth of shopping. And, they fold up small enough to fit in the palm of your hand!
GIVEAWAY!! Want an Envirosax bag of your own-for FREE? Here’s your chance. Just visit Envirosax.com and e-mail the name of your favorite design to essencegiveaway@envirosax.com. You may be one of 15 randomly selected winners to get a cool, new bag!



Head Case
Glammed out headbands are always a hit for day or night. We love these sparklers from Goody for New Year’s Eve ($4.99, drugstores nationwide).



Care Giver
Give a stocking stuffer with heart. Make-Up Designory (MUD) has partnered with NextAid, a nonprofit organization that helps build homes for AIDS orphans in Africa. One hundred percent of the proceeds of the sale of MUD’s limited-edition eye shadow palette ($25, makeupschool.com) go directly to NextAid to help fund its valiant efforts.




Classic Beauty
In celebration of their thirtieth anniversary, Banana Republic has reinvented its iconic Classic fragrance (100 ml, $48, Banana Republic stores nationwide). But don’t wait; the sophisticated eau de parfum is available for a limited time only!

Island Getaway
Imagine an exotic island trip in a tin. Voila! Carol’s Daughter Body Butters in Ecstasy, Love Butter and SweetHoneyDip ChocolateBrownSugah ($18 each, carolsdaughter.com) take you on a mini escape every time you rub yourself down in these fragrant body balms. 







Case Studies
As fashionable as they are functional, these sleek cosmetic and accessory bags from Trina can easily double as evening clutches. Shown here: Steel Yourself frame purse ($34, 800.833.5562 for stores).



Sweet Love
They look like sugary, gooey desserts but they’re actually soaps. Soapier Scoops ($10 each, soapier.com) shea butter soaps come in an array of delish “flavors.”
