My 2012 gift desires (a video tutorial)

This time of year, I’m spending a lot of time writing gift guides for the various sites I contribute to.

Just by way of example, here’s some gift guides I’ve written so far that have already gone live (and more coming!):

Beauty brush cleaners for the tidy lady

Pretty jewelry gifts for your BFF

Non gift-card gifts for the diehard fashionista

What to buy for your manly man

Techy gifts for your guy

Beauty gifts for the girl who has everything

But ultimately, my desires fall back to, well, ME. My birthday is during the holiday season — and, for me, the ultimate holiday, and whatever the occasion for anyone else, it’s what I most want that is often at the top of many a gift list!

Last week, I went to Boston for the day to with P&G Beauty to visit  Gillette — I’ll share more about what I saw soon, but on my way back to NY, I stopped by Robert Verdi’s Luxe Lab (he is one of my favorite humans on earth, have I ever mentioned that?) – where P&G dolled me up in holiday-apropos hair and makeup, and then I got to pick some gifts for my own holiday wish list segment.

(They called it gift ideas, but whatever, it’s all about me, as I said.) Here’s some of what I most loved!
