The Best in Holiday 2012 Gift Finds is an ongoing series until December that celebrates the practical to the extravagant, the unusual to the commonly needed items of everyday life.
From food, wine and spirits to beauty, clothing and even home goods and appliances, we have been trying and testing and ultimately weeding out the good stuff you should consider for giving this holiday season. Take us shopping with you.

Arbonne Holiday 2012 features gifts created with botanically based ingredients and earth-friendly packaging. These exclusive gifts are a pleasure to receive, and a portion of two specific products - The Angel Fragrance and The Angel Wings Holiday Ornament - goes to support the Arbonne Charitable Foundation.
Every year Arbonne introduces new sets for gifting and we were fortunate to try two, the Ginger Citrus set, and Pampermint for the feet. Both formulas - as all Arbonne products - are never tested on animals and do not contain animal-derived ingredients or animal by-products.
For those who want to support made in the USA item, notes that these body care items are without any animal products or animal by-products, Parabens, Formaldehyde-donating preservatives, or any of these awful petroleum-based ingredients: Benzene, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Phthalates, Toluene or PABA.
Arbonne Holiday Ginger Citrus Luxury Gift Set
(Body Wash, Sugar Scrub and Body Butter)
The natural paper materials used for the big box include their signature citrus and ginger spice scented body treats, including Body Wash, Sugar Scrub and Body Butter. An $88 value, for $74. All work together to give glowing smooth skin and it smells heavenly.
Pampermint Footcare gift set
One item your family with fight over. The foot scrub is revelatory, waking up tired feet and for runners, male or female, a must-have. Real peppermint scrubs and moisturizes feet in comfort with a pair of plush socks to wear overnight. Set includes FootWork Foot Scrub (340 g) SoleMate Foot Cream (255 g) and Signature Socks in a holiday gift box.
We loved the natural peppermint fragrance in both of these products, and that the foot scrub is a creamy potion laced with pumice which is a great exfoliator.
