The Luxe List – Gift Giving Ideas From Tatcha

It’s time to create your gift lists, both gifts you wish to receive and gifts you want to give.

Today I’m looking at The Luxe List. Exquisite gifts for the girl who enjoys something extra special, extra fabulous.

These make sensational business gifts, and hostess gifts too.

I am so completely enamored of Tatcha and their incredible high performance, luxurious skin care products. I have written about them before here and here.

Tatcha products are divine.

I recently found out too that every purchase you make from Tatcha provides schooling for an underprivileged girl. 

Beautiful Faces, Beautiful Futures

“The greatest secret I learned from the geisha was that beauty begins in the heart and the mind.”

Victoria Tsai

Tatcha founder Victoria Tsai believes that the best way to help girls become beautiful is to give them the opportunity to develop their minds.

As such she began a partnership with Room To Read, an organization commited to changing the world through education. Through this partnership every full sized purchase of Tatcha’s skin care products funds an entire day of school for a girl somewhere in the world.

Back to gift giving, here are three gift sets makinkg it to both my “giving” list, and the list of gifts I’m secretly coveting.


Kokoro Golden Lip and Mirror Set


This is such a perfect gift! A beautiful set with Camellia Lip Balm and a gold plated mirror.
Camellia oil is super healing and nourishing, and makes for the best lip balm I have ever used. I have Camellia lip balm in both my pro makeup kit and my personal makeup stash.
The packaging and presentation of every Tatcha product is sensational, making the opening of the products and event in itself.
I also love this one as a bride or bridesmaid gift.

Christmas Wish List ~ Coffee Table Books

I adore beautiful coffee table books.
In fact they are one of the few things I collect.
This year I have four coffee table books on my Christmas list.
Any of these books make a perfect gift for anyone who enjoys fashion and style, as well as the perfect gift for yourself.

The Little Black Jacket, Chanel’s Classic Revisited By Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld

I am pretty much obsessed with Carine Roitfeld and everything she does. My Christmas List is topped with this gorgeous book celebrating Chanel’s little black jacket. Her partnership with Karl Lagerfeld always yields the spectacular, and this glorious tome will not disappoint.

Oscar De La Renta, The Style, Inspiration And Life of Oscar De La Renta


Somewhat bittersweet with his recent passing, this updated version of the 2002 book celebrates Oscar de la Renta’s milestones in the world of fashion and style.

“Oscar completely understands who he is and who he is dressing… He’s never tried to be avant-garde or difficult. He just does really good clothes, never overtly sexy but attractive, colorful, and feminine,”  Anna Wintour.


Over 160 images in a beautiful hard slipcase.

Fabulous Quotes ~ Manolo Blahnik

I adore great quotes.
And I adore Manolo Blahnik.
In the September 2014 issue of Allure Magazine he listed 10 beautiful things a woman should own. Or maybe it was just a list of 10 beautiful things.
Anyway he had some glorious quotes in there.

Manolo-Blahnik-Summer-2014

The first was expected “A high heel transforms you. It changes the way you walk, the way you dress…”


But my favorite was when discussing Hermes bags.
He loves an Hermes Tote that I couldn’t find online, but I liked the bag below, The Garden Party Bag $3450.00

Hermes-Garden-Party-Bag

And the quote?
“I like all things from Hermes, but the problem is that you have vile celebrities in America wearing a Birkin like it is a trophy. So I like this one that is very simple.”


Haha!
