Holiday Gift Sets

IMG_1542Tis the season for the holiday gift set bonanza, not only at stores like Sephora, Ulta, and Nordstrom, but also Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and Target.  These items are available now and will most likely be sold out before the first snowflake falls. So each Friday I will be featuring holiday sets on my blog. I will let you know where I bought the items and the purchase price. (And if there are any deals!) There will be items for every budget level and I will include a product review. Be sure to check back each Friday!

The Delectable Dream Cream Hand Cream Gift Set by Cake Beauty comes in six limited edition scents and is $19 at (online only) and $18 at

  • Clementine (1.0 oz)
  • Sweet Mint (1.0 oz)
  • Candy Sparkle (1.0 oz)
  • Iced Gingerbread (1.0 oz)
  • Shortbread (1.0 oz)
  • Snow Sugar (1.0 oz)

The hand creams are enriched with shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe vera to smooth, nourish, and rejuvenate hands and cuticles. This hand cream works extremely well. It smells fantastic, but the scents are not overpowering. The hand cream is not greasy. It soaks in very quickly and leaves your hands smooth and hydrated.

The delectable Bod Squad by Cake Beauty. from Delectable! Each lotion is enriched with coconut oil, shea butter, and aloe vera to hydrate and nourish even the driest of skin. These are limited edition holiday scents. This is $16 at (online only) and $16 at

Gift set includes:

  • Sweet Mint (2.0 oz)
  • Clementine (2.0 oz)
  • Candy Sparkle (2.0 oz)
  • Iced Gingerbread (2.0 oz)

I like using lotions with intensive moisturizing lotions like coconut oil and shea butter in the fall and winter. I like the fact that the scents match up with the hand lotions. (Sometimes you can have too many competing scents in products.) The scents are not over strong, but will linger pleasantly for a few hours.

Cake Beauty advertises itself as 100% Vegan and Cruelty Free. They do not use parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and talc in their products.

Is it worth it? Yes! The products are wonderful. The scents are amazing and will put you in the holiday spirit. You can split the sets and make stocking-stuffers for multiple people.   And the tubes are a good size. (You won’t be using up Iced Gingerbread next August–unless you want to. As I always say–you do you.)

Disclaimer–I purchased all products discussed in this post.  This is not sponsored.

So what holiday gift sets have you excited? What have you already purchased? Let us know in the comments below.

While you shop at your favorite online store, or put on makeup, why not listen to a good book? Starter Zone, the first book of my new YA/LitRPG series, The Revelation Chronicles, is now available on Audible!


When hydrologists inscribe the consciousness of a human mind onto a single drop of water, a Revelation sweeps the land. The wealthy race to upload their minds into self-contained virtual realities nicknamed Aquariums. In these containers people achieve every hope, dream, and desire. But governments wage war for control of the technology. Terrorist attacks cause massive destruction. The Aquariums fail. Inscribed human minds leech into the water cycle, wreaking havoc.

Street gangs rule the cities in the three years since the fall of civilization. Sixteen-year-old Cami and her younger sister Alby struggle to survive. Every drop of untreated water puts their lives in peril. Caught and imprisoned by soldiers who plan to sell them into slavery, Cami will do anything to escape and rescue her sister. Even if it means leaving the real word for a life in the realms, a new game-like reality created by the hydrologists for the chosen few.

But life in the realms isn’t as simple as it seems. Magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as the sisters navigate their new surroundings. And they encounter more dangerous enemies than any they faced in the real world.

Time to play the game.
