Kiehl's Holiday Gift Wishlist

It's that time of year again where you want to get gifts for almost everyone but aren't quite sure what to get for little Timmy's teacher or the UPS man (since he spends so much time at my house I feel like I need to get him something), or the Barista at your local coffee house.  Well I have 7 great gift ideas from Kiehl's.  One of my more favorite skin care companies has so many sweet gifts for almost everyone in your life.  I personally am a new addict to their Creme de Corps lotion and I have put a few of the items form this list on MY wishlist for Mr. Sith to pick up. (HINT HINT).  But what I like most about Kiehl's is their customer service.  They have wonderful customer service at their counters, stand alone stores and on line!  They are generous with samples when you visit a counter or store and have a wonderful attitude about returns.  Should you purchase anything from them that is not 100% pleasing to you, you can return it for a full refund.  That's even true of the Kiehl's website too!  But I bet you will have a hard time finding something that needs to be returned in the first place.  So let's take a look at 7 gifts that I think are some of the best offerings for this year!

1. Aromatic Blends Orange Flower & Lychee Gift Set - $70.00
I put this first because I'm worried Mr.Sith won't read this full post and he will miss the fact that I REALLY want this for the holidays!  (HINT HINT MR. SITH!). Dubbed "the complete fragrant body collection", this fragrant set is a fusion of Orange Flower and Lychee sweetened with a touch of honey and rounded out by Moroccan Rose.  This I have tested in person and i must say...DELIGHTFUL!  I NEED this in my life, and you do too!  This set includes:
  • Orange Flower & Lychee Aromatic Mist (1oz)
  • Orange Flower & Lychee Skin-Softening Body Lotion (8.4oz)
  • Orange Flower & Lychee Skin-Softening Cleanser (8.4oz)
Perfect for scent layering making sure that the wonderful and delicate fragrance is with you all day long.   You can purchase this at Kiehl', Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

2.  Lip Balm Giftables - $30.00
Kiehl's #1 bestseller comes in 4 varieties in this keen little set.  This lip balm has been one of Kiehl's best sellers since 1969 (Hey that's even before I was born!). I have gone through many tubes of this lip balm in the past and must say it feels great but also smells amazing too. The colorful boxes in this set contain four versions of Kiehl's lip balm.
  • Lip Balm #1 (0.5 oz.)
  • Lip Balm #1 Vanilla (0.5 oz.)
  • Lip Balm #1 Coconut (0.5 oz.)
  • Lip Balm #1 Mango (0.5 oz.)
This could be a great stocking stuffer or the perfect thank you gift or a hint to your loved one to get their lips in shape for kissing at midnight on New Year's Eve!  You can purchase this at Kiehl', Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

3.  Creme de Corps Collection - $64.00
As a new devotee of Kiehl's Creme de Corps I can tell you that this set would make anyone unfamiliar with the Creme de Corps collection fall madly in love.  Have a friend or co worker with painfully dry skin? Maybe a relative that is always complaining about dry winters?  This might be the perfect set for them!  3 Creme de Corps products and 3 other Kiehl's products, all, rich in all-day hydration, make an ideal gift for pampering dry skin. This set includes:
  • Creme de Corps Nurturing Body Moisturizer (8.4 oz)
  • Creme de Corps Travel Size (2.5 oz)
  • Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Body Polish (6.8 oz)
  • Lip Balm #1 (0.5 oz)
  • Ultra Facial Cream (0.25 oz)
  • Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate (0.17 oz).
I like the travel size Creme de Corps to have in my bag at all times this winter. I refuse to have painful dry hands for even one second this year. You can purchase this at Kiehl', Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

4.  Ultimate Man Refueling Set - $58.00
This collection of classic Kiehl's for men formulas is the perfect answer to gift giving for that one (or more than one) man in your life that could use a good sprucing up, or for ones that already take care of their skin.  Have an uncle that is always sharply dressed and freshly shaved?  What about a male co-worker that you owe for helping you that big project?  Your dad in need of a good pick me up?  Well this set of every day classic Kiehl's formulas for men will do the trick.  This set includes:
  • Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash (8.4 oz)
  • Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream White Eagle (5.0 oz)
  • Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment For Men (2.5 oz)
  • Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm (0.17 oz)
  • “Ultimate Man” Body Scrub Soap (3.2 oz)
  • Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (1.0 oz).
And remember, some guys don't want to admit it, but they really do love hand lotion and lip balm in the winter.  You can purchase this at Kiehl', Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

 5.  Kiehl's Greatest Hits Collection - $44.00
If your favorite band isn't releasing a "Christmas Album" this year they are probably coming out with a "Greatest Hits Album" instead.  Well Kiehl's also has a Greatest Hits collection and this one may just make you look and feel like a rock star. This collection of classic customer favorites allow you to experience some of the most iconic, yet innovative, Kiehl’s formulations for skin and hair.  This set includes:
  • Amino Acid Shampoo (2.5oz)
  • Amino Acid Conditioner (2.5oz)
  • Creme de Corps Body Moisturizer (2.5 oz)
  • Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Body Polish (2.5 oz)
  • Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (2.5 oz.)
  • Ultra Facial Cream (0.25 oz)
  • Midnight Recovery Concentrate (0.14 oz)
This is a great introduction to the Kiehl's brand for your budding product obsessed niece, sister or whomever have been "bitten" by the product bug!  You can purchase this at Kiehl' and Neiman Marcus.

6.  Aromatic Blends Coffret Set - $55.00
Coffret is a French word for Box or Boxed set (loosely translated). And everyone knows how wonderful the French are with fragrance.  Well Kiehl's has also expanded into the fragrance arena and they are offering a set of all 4 of their Aromatic Blends Scents arranged in a beautiful gift box.  This set will carry you away on a fragrant journey around the world. Each scent pairing is sourced the world over for the most unique, effective ingredients. This set contains:
  • Orange Flower & Lychee Fragrance Spray (10ml)
  • Vanilla & Cedarwood Fragrance Spray (10ml)
  • Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit Fragrance Spray (10ml)
  • Fig Leaf & Sage Fragrance Spray (10ml)
I have sniffed all four scents and my personal favorites are Orange Flower & Lychee and Fig Leaf & Sage. But I have to say that the Vanilla & Cedarwood and the Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit are also really very nice.  In fact, now that I think about it, I don't really know which one is my favorite. I think I want (NEED) them all.  Are you paying attention MR. SITH?  (HINT HINT) You can purchase this at Kiehl', Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

7.  Limited Edition Kenny Scharf Creme de Corps - Various Sizes and Prices
Of course I saved the BEST for last. My new obsession, Kiehl's Creme de Corps lotion!  This time the classic lotion comes with a limited edition label or outer wrapping designed by famous Pop Art Surrealist, Kenny Scharf.  If you want to read my review, you can read it HERE.  If you want to learn more about Kenny Scharf and Pop Art Surrealism you can read my post HERE.  These bottles feature the vibrant work, Globo Mundo, by Kenny Scharf.  In collaboration with Mr. Scharf, Kiehl’s will raise $200,000 for children’s causes around the world.  In the United States, 100% of net profits will support RxArt,  a non-profit organization committed to fostering artistic expression for young patients in pediatric hospitals. The classic Creme de Corps formula is:
  • Ideal for normal-to-dry skin, including extremely dry skin
  • Leaves skin soft, smooth and elegantly hydrated
  • A customer favorite for over four decades
The 8.4 fl. oz. bottle retails for $29.50. The 16.9 fl. oz. bottle retails for $48.00 and the super duper sized 1 liter pump bottle retails for $75.00.  You can purchase these at Kiehl', Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

  1. I like these sets, not too much frill or anything (except maybe the last set, with the crazy packaging). A very good no-nonsense gift :-)
