Today I put together a gift basket for a silent auction. A description for the basket came to me as I was driving home after purchasing I Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora Ephron. On the front of the yellow book is a prescription bottle.
As I wrote the description, I thought of the friends who would love to receive the basket as a gift.
The gift giving season is near, so I thought I should share the gift basket idea in case you’re looking for the just-right gift for a friend (or yourself).
I Call it The Pick-Me-Up Prescription:
To be taken with coffee, tea, or wine and something divine. It can be taken at any time.
- Soothing Mineral Bath Salts do wonders when you need a calming evening soak. Sprinkle in the shower for a calm and refreshing beginning to your day.
- Discover yourself, relax, and restore the inner you as you breathe in the aromatic essential oils in the JAFRA spa Mud Mask. It can be used on your face or body.
- Spritz on some Paris et Moi whenever you’d like romance to entrez votre vie (enter your life).
- Read some Nora Ephron whenever you’re in need of some perspective, a good laugh, and the words of a wise woman.
The Spa and Perfume Goodies:
Normal retail on the Mud Mask is $31 and on the Soothing Mineral Salts is $30. Right now through October 31st, you can purchase both for a total of $32. Clicking on the above pictures will take you to the products and the special.
Books I Recommend for a Pick Me Up:
I have read each and every one of these books and they all make me smile. Ephron’s writing is like that of a best friend who will tell you the things on their mind that they shouldn’t. Yes, Please by Amy Poehler made me laugh and feel more love for myself and all women everywhere. Joan Didion‘s writing is that of the wise friend. The type of friend that can be counted on for the exact advice you didn’t know you needed.
