The holidays are quickly approaching and we know two things are on your mind: gifts and your holiday menu. Lucky for us Beauty and Lifestyle Expert Milly Almodovar is here to give us some suggestions on making it a great holiday season.
1. LEGO® DOTS sets enhance imagination through making and customizing room decor items or jewelry, bringing the joy of LEGO play to a new group of kids. Kids can customize their DOTS sets using the design ideas from the packaging or use their creativity and design skills to make up their own imaginative patterns for the toy. Kids can also swap the tiles with any other DOTs sets and use them to enhance any LEGO set. These sets are perfect for kids 6 years and up with a passion for arts and crafts.
Lego Dots Pencil Holder. This Fun kit includes a craftable rocket ship with an opening window frame for a picture or drawing and back storage space to hold pencils, stationery or whatever kids like. LEGO® DOTS Pencil Holder. Age 6+ , $20
LEGO® DOTS Bag Tag Panda and Narwhal, it features a sturdy cube with a hanger, a key-shaped tile remover, and plenty of colorful tiles. Great for stocking stuffers or when traveling to see family and friends for the holidays. These sets are available for purchase at LEGO.com, LEGO Retail stores and other major retailers.

2. Catrice True Skin High Coverage Concealer. It’s waterproof, it’s lightweight and it provides up to 18 hours of hydrating, high coverage wear. It comes in 15 shades so there’s a shade for everyone you know. It also contains hyaluronic acid so it moisturizes and it melts into skin without settling into fine lines. It’s going to cover any dark circles, blemishes, and redness you may have. It’s vegan and only $7.00 at catricecosmetics.com and Amazon.
3. Eucerin Hydrating Cleansing Gel is clinically formulated for sensitive skin, it’s made with hyaluronic acid to help maintain skin’s moisture balance and their APG cleansing complex which is an effective yet extra mild cleansing complex gently lifts away impurities without stripping the skin. You can find it at CVS for $10.99.
With the weather getting colder and skin getting drier, the gift of great hydrated skin is key. These Eucerin products are a must-have as gifts. Did you know Eucerin is recommended by dermatologists and has been one of the world’s most trusted skincare brands for more than 100 years.
There’s also the Eucerin Intensive Repair Oil balm.
It melts on skin contact, deeply moisturizing in one application, brightening dull skin for an all-day glow. It’s formulated with skin essential oils, natural moisturizing factors, and Vitamin C. You can find it at Walmart for $9.99.
4. Finally for the foodie in your life. Most people think of the traditional versions of the Thanksgiving dishes we’ve come to know and love, but this Thanksgiving I urge you to try something out of the box like House Foods America’s recipe for Tofu & Cauliflower Garlic Mash to impress your guests.
House Foods’ Organic Soft Tofu has recipes for other Thanksgiving dishes like a Creamy Tofu Green Bean Casserole, a Tofu Pumpkin Pie, and more. You can find these recipes and a store locator on the House Foods website!
