• Claire’s Life: Robert Verdi’s Holiday Gift Guide

    Happy Monday ladies and gents!
    Yesterday, after wrapping our holiday staff shoot at Robert Verdi’s Luxe Laboratory (stay tuned for the pix!), I chatted with our kind host about a few of his fun ideas for holiday gifts:

    From electronics to tea, from novels to nail polish, Robert has an eye for fly. Check out his suggestions for everyone on your list:

    For the Do-It-All Mom, he suggests calming Tea from TeaForte.com, an Herbal Essences Shower set, and a good novel to relax in the bathtub–he likes, The Liar, The B*tch, and the Wardrobe by Allie Kingsley. Stash all your goodies in a Rugby Striped Bin from the Container Store.

    He earmarked lots of Covergirl beauty products for the Glam Gal, including Blast Flipstick, Clump Crusher Mascara, and Nail Gloss. Keep your teeth white with Crest White Strips and Oral B Floss. Clean up errant spills with a Tide To Go Instant Stain Remover and accent any look with a glittery Lauren Merkin clutch.

    The DIY Dad can never get enough Gillette Razors and Duracell batteries (duh!).

    Furry friends also get love with Iams treats and fabulous ponchos (meow!).

    Hip Holiday Hostesses can enjoy Thomas Paul Bath Mats, Dawn Dish Detergent, and an Umbra soap pump.

    Have In Laws? Gift ’em the practical. Few households can ever have enough Puffs Tissues, Mr. Clean, Bounty Paper Towels, or Cascade. Wrap everything in a Jessica Cushman Rope Tote.

    The Timely Techie probably doesn’t need more than a RumbaTime Perry Watch.

    Gift the Techno Teen UrbanEars headphones and a BlueTooth Silicone Keyboard from Brookstone.

    If you’re a jetsetter you seriously need to know about the Rise and Hang bag. So cool! Mask tired eyes with Robert Verdi sunglasses (what else?), and avoid lacing up shoes with Hickies hands free laces.

    Whether you’re a Busy Boss or a Savvy Socialite, you can make use of a Parker Pen and Moleskin Notebook. Stay organized with large lacquer rectangle boxes from the Container Store, and make calls on the go with an HTC Smartphone.

    And lastly, fun for the whole family: Dance Central 3 with XBox Kinect.
    Quite an eclectic mix! Did anything catch your eye?

    Stay tuned for The Fashion Bomb’s Holiday Gift Guide tomorrow!
