It’s time to give gifts. While the process can be painful and wrought with angst, it doesn’t have to be, especially when you give your friends and family one or more of the following items:

Kiehl’s Whipped Creme de Corps Body Butter: A decadent treat that is super moisturizing with shea and jojoba butters. I am a longtime fan of Kiehl’s products, but this generous pot of soy milk and honey infused heaven is just so magical, I haven’t been able to stop talking about it since it was given to me as a gift. And the scent? Intoxicatingly delish. $48, Neiman Marcus and others

Melvin Jewlery: This Charlotte-based jewelry line is having a moment (featured on the HBO show “Girls” among other places). For the second year in a row has made it on to my list of gifting must-haves. (And yes, it’s on my personal wish list as well). Made in America, the cheeky, ahead-of-the-curve collections are full-on attention-grabbers, in the most chic way, of course. shopmelvin.com or Poole Shop

Everpurse: A clutch that charges your mobile phone without needing a source of electricity? That’s Everpurse: the stylish solution to the #firstworld problem of over-using your iPhone and running out of juice with no outlet close by. Starting at $189, everpurse.com
