Now that my daughter is ten she is starting to pay more attention to her appearance. Obviously, I don’t let her wear makeup out of the house yet. (She should really thank me for that because she is still experimenting and at this point her signature look is bright blue eye shadow and pink lipstick like Barbie.) She takes a lot of care in the morning with her clothing, hair and earrings and I recently decided it would be nice to buy her a special fragrance.
Last week I went into CVS to pick up wrapping paper and ribbons for my Christmas presents and ventured into the perfume aisle. I have to say that I was really surprised with the amount of inexpensive, name-brand gift sets that they carry there! There are some brands which are making it so much easier to pay for perfume now though, such as afterpay for perfume. It certainly helps when you are trying to budget for the holidays. The Holidays are so busy, and trying to figure out the perfect gift for everyone in your family can be stressful, but thankfully, Coty Holiday Gift Sets bring ease to gift buying. They have scents from Beyonce, Vera Wang and Nautica (just to name a few). The one that really caught my eye for Taylor was Katy Perry’s Mad Potion. It came complete with perfume, body lotion and shower gel and it was only $19.99! Plus, there is a $4 off coupon here.
Each year I take Taylor to see a concert. It is kind of our “thing”. One of our absolute favorites was Katy Perry’s Prismatic World Tour. We went to see it in the Summer of 2013 and it was an excellent show. I love that we can do this together and we create so many fun memories rocking out to our favorite music.
I thought it would be fun to wrap the gift set with white paper and some pretty foil washi tape instead of the usual red and green paper I am putting on everyone else’s gifts. I bought a three pack of it here and I decided to use it to create a Christmas tree pattern. The best part about washi tape is that if you don’t like your design, you can just peel it off and start over and it wont damage the wrapping paper underneath.
I hope my little lady loves her perfume and every time she wears it she thinks of me and our fun time together at the Katy Perry show!
Here are some more fun ways to gift a memory this holiday season.
