Manicure in a jar
Nail scissors, nail clippers, pretty nail files, nail brush, nail polish and polish remover wipes – all available at retail pharmacies. Fill a jar with nail product treats to make an easy-to-transport beauty kit. You can be creative and make something other than a mani jar – pedicures and facial jars are also great ideas, especially if you know what products the gift recipient likes to use.
