• Prove you know them best through their favorite scent. Gifts are also well appreciated when the recipient knows it has been hand-picked, especially for them. Show that you know them like the back of your hand through their favorite scents. For those who like the sweet contrast of floral and musky, the Givenchy Irresistible Eau de Toilette Fraiche features a bright and spicy scent, with top notes of pink peppercorn extract and middle notes of rose water. Keeping up with the theme is the Flower by Kenzo L’Absolue, a spicy floral fragrance crafted by Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas for women that transcend the poppy into a captivating spicy floral scent. The Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Ruby Orchid perfectly pairs a voluptuous, rich Ruby Orchid Flower accord and an intensely sensual and surprisingly opulent Red Foxy Vanilla Bean accord. Reminiscent of a bright sky after a rainy day, the Maison Margiela Replica When The Rain Stops is a woody aquatic fragrance that opens with a vibrant pink pepper essence blended with the fresh and luminous Rose petal essence. On the other hand, the Dunhill Driven Black Eau de Parfum woody floral fragrance opens with an exciting blend of Bergamot, Lime, Red Apple, and Plum; and delivers freshness with an unexpected blend of Cardamom, Cinnamon, and Jasmine. Crystalline yet powerful, the Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Eau de Parfum is a Woody Aromatic Aquatic masculine fragrance that captures the original marine signature, while infusing the juice with a new molecule, Yodanol, that allows its freshness to last infinitely.

• Essential items they can use throughout the year. Speaking of practical gifts, another surefire way to please your loved ones is through gifts for everyday use. Ensure they stay hydrated during workouts with the Aladdin Active Hydration Bottle which features a leak-proof lid and vacuum-insulated stainless steel interior that keeps the drink cold for 15 hours and iced for 40 hours.
