Last minute gift ideas from Burt's Bees, Clinique, Weleda, Birks, Juicy Couture and Avon!

Still not done with your Christmas shopping? Judging from the mall parking lot when I drove by yesterday, you're not the only one so here are a few ideas for what to get those still on your list:

Burt's Bees Embossed Tin Set - $19.99 - fun, festive set comes with a Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey BodyLotion, Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and a Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate.

At select natural, grocery and drug stores as well as online at
Clinique A Season's Worth of Pretty - $39.00 with any Clinique purchase - a holiday palette that features an array of shades for lips, eyes and cheeks ready to be mixed and matched to create an assortment of looks for every occasion - includes: Butter Shine Lipstick in Crushed Grape, Parisian Red, Pink Goddess, Ambrosia and Adore U; Colour Surge Eye Shadow Palette featuring five shades; and Blushing Blush Powder Blusher in Pink Love, Precious Posy and Sunset Glow.

Weleda Skin Food - 75ml with Moisturizing Gloves - $20 - an intensively nourishing, deeply hydrating cream for dry, rough skin. Apply generously, then insert hands into gloves and allow the sunflower seed oil and extracts of organic chamomile, soothing rosemary leaf and Biodynamic calendula flower to penetrate deeply into the skin overnight. Restores and protects even the most stubborn of dry hands as well as softening cuticles.

Available at Rexall Pharma Plus, Whole Foods, Noah's Natural Foods as well as various other natural independent health food stores and online at
The Butterfly Pendant by Birks and Jenn Heil  - $150 - The sterling silver butterfly, was chosen as the central design element for this pendant, symbolizing the growth of an individual when given the opportunity to pursue their dreams. Wear the butterfly pendant by Birks and Jenn Heil and take part in a global movement to claim a brighter and safer future for girls. Birks will proudly donate a portion of the proceeds of the sales of this pendant in support of Plan Canada's Because I am a Girl initiative - when we support and empower girls around the world, they will, like butterflies, transform their lives and grow to become successful individuals who will be influencers in their communities and share their knowledge with those around them. 

Available at Birks, and through Gifts of Hope from Plan Canada -  
Viva La Juicy Limited Edition Parfum - 100ml - $120 - a playful and alluring mix of mandarin orange, wild berries, honeysuckle, gardenia and creamy amber notes. In a special edition bottle which is gilded and distressed to vintage perfection with a three-step proprietary metallization process, used for the first time on fragrance bottles. Playfully adorning the bottle is a heart-shaped charm pinned to a fuchsia bow, a unique collectible inspired by Juicy Couture accessories.

Available exclusively at The Bay.
I have it on good authority from my friendly neighbourhood Avon lady that they do keep product on hand - so yours would be a great resource for last minute gifts! Bath products are always great so may I suggest Avon So Luminous Dazzle Bath & Body - a collection of products scented with sparkling bergamot champagne, golden pear, crystallized ginger and radiant sandalwood - available in: Bath Nectar - 133ml - $12; Body Mist - 236ml - $14; Body Moisture Gel - 141g - $12; and Hair Mist - $14 or alternatively, my very favourite - Bubble Delight Bubble Bath - 700ml - $9.99 on sale for $6.99 right now! - which comes in the most amazing Sugar Plum Cream scent this year, if that doesn't scream Christmas, I don't know what does!

If you don't have your own Avon lady yet find one at 1-800-265-AVON or order online at
