You love your family and friends, and you are no penny-pinching Penelope, but nobody is perfect and you may realize today that you have forgotten a key gift or two for a loved one…

Just in time to save the day, here are our Women’s Mafia Endorsed Gifts, many of which you can order online and then add to their Ipod or send directly to their house!

Gifts For Her:
Skincare Set from FaceIt Skincare – Starting at only $25 for the minty fresh ReFresh Facial Cleansing Scrub (which we are OBSESSED with!), this line by MIT wunderkind Allison Gallo actually works. Gift the gift of flawless, touchable skin.
Daily Defender $40, Dream Beautifully $45, Smooth Eyeperator $50


Massage by Downtime Spa – You may remember meeting Downtime Massage founder Greg Cartwright at the Women’s Mafia Insider’s Lounge – and if you were really lucky you got to try one of his signature De-Stress Muscle Relaxer Massages – a combination of relaxing deep-tissue massage and aromatherapy that will leave you and your loved-ones in pure bliss. The massage is normally $125, but they have amazing Christmas specials and Women’s Mafia members get 20% off for a limited time. Be sure to mention when booking!

Gifts for Him:
For your high-adventure photo enthusiast, swing by REI or call your local outdoor store to score aflexible, light-weight tripod that can attach to nearly anything – be it the handles of a motocycle to for Indie film-making or the branch that gives you the perfect angle on a mountain at dawn. The Joby Gorillapod starts at $22 at REI and Amazon.

Ipod Touch – When it comes to gadgets, few tech toys are more cool than the 3rd Generation Itouch from Apple. Guys love the sleek design and that it can pack a ton of games, music, movies, videos and web-access with its new built-in Wi-Fi. Latest models starting at $199 at your local Apple or Best Buy stores.
