Gifts For Her: Signature Scents

Before you know it, Christmas {or whatever holiday you choose to celebrate} will be here! While gifts aren't everything, we certainly understand it is widely practiced by many, so don't fall behind on fulfilling your friends and family's gift wish list. We have decided to pull some items from different gift categories to help you have some selections when choosing the perfect gift for a special girlfriend, your Mom or sister in your life.

Today, we have compiled our favorite fragrances for HER. When it comes to fragrances, you really cannot be stingy. Your scent is just as important as your outfit and often times your scent walks into a room before you do. When thinking of selections we have high end, splurge options like Café Rose by Tom Ford which gives off a strong, yet floral and sophisticated scent. Then you have a little more middle end scents to choose from like Si by Giorgio Armani or Bella by Vince Camuto which is a newer scent. Whichever scent you choose, opt for the gift set option! You get more bang with your buck as you can add in a lotion and often times smaller bottle of the perfume in addition to the actual perfume.

What are some of your favorite scents?

Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel!

"I have a little dreidel, I made it out of clay.  When it's dry and ready, then dreidel I shall play.  Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made it out of clay.  Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, then dreidel I shall play!"
-The Dreidel Song

In honor of Hanukkah, we decided to play a little game of dreidel.  How do you play, you ask?  Well, we have broken it down into easy steps!  Grab some chocolate gelt (chocolate coins covered in gold foil) and join in on the fun!

You will need:
-A friend or two (or more!) to play the game with
-A dreidel
-Chocolate gelt or any other fun tokens (candy, etc) 

1. Distribute the gelt evenly among players.
2. Take turns spinning the dreidel!  Each time before you spin, put one piece of gelt in the center, or "pot".
3. The letter the dreidel falls on determines what happens next. 
  • Shin: put one more piece of gelt in the pot.
  • Nun: do nothing.
  • Gimmel: take all of the gelt in the pot!
  • Hay: take half of the gelt in the pot.  If it's an odd number, round up.
4.  If you run out of gelt, you are out of the game... or you can ask another player to borrow!
5. Keep passing the dreidel, until someone wins the whole pot.
6. Winner eats the chocolate... hopefully your friends like to share!
7. To keep playing, each player can put a token back in the pot.  Resume the game.

Have fun playing this classic Hanukkah game, and Happy Hanukkah everyone!
