Christmas Shopping

Do you know a cool place in Houston to shop? Share it with us here at Metroblogging Houston. After all there are only 17 shopping days left until Christmas.

If you know someone who likes scents then I would like to recommend L’Occitane. L’Occitane is a French fragrance boutique and has locations in the Galleria, Memorial City and Highland Village.

The store has a wide range of products including perfume, bath and shower products, body and hand lotions, and face, sun and hair care among other items. And if you are like me and have had bad reactions to scented soap (waaahhhhh!!!) L’Occitane also offers a range of home fragrance products including room spray, sachets, incense and candles. I like these fragrances because they are not overwhelming and sickeningly sweet. It is a light fragrance that does not over power. Some of the scents they offer are Rose, Magnolia, Lavender, Sweet Almond, Clementine and Cinnamon Orange (that’s the candle I have.) The prices range between $10 – 30 per item. I know I will be back before the Christmas Countdown Clock hits zero.

    Check out Sweet Tooth Bath and Body. Right now available mostly on the web (www.esweettooth.com). I wish that I had some type of involvement with this company and concept because it is AWESOME!!!!! If you go to the web site you will see that the products (bath, body, home scents) are bakery theme designed. I just ordered the “frozen hot cocoa” scent in a shower gel as a stocking stuffer. The owner has arranged with a couple of boutiques to sell her products with one of the boutiques being in the Spring area and another being in Highland Village (??-not sure, check the site). If the web offered smell o vision you would max out your credit card on just one visit.
