Christmas Gift Suggestion List Gifts for Wives or Sweetheart Should Be Chosen Thoughtfully By BETTY CLARKE AP Tcalurc Service Writer Every year husbands and beaux and brothers «nd fathers spend thousands of dollars on beauty gifts that arc hardly worth the giving, Most -men don't know what wives or sweethearts like, but they feel obligated to buy iomcthing feminine, so they head for the beauty counters. Well, gentlemen, here arc some idea about gifts women would buy for themselves. A really nice compact is one of the first things, usually the bigger the better. Usually, too, she wants only two items in that compact; powder and rouge. She likes her lipstick scpcratc, but would be doubly pleased if the lipstick container complemented her compact. Loose-powder compacts, incidental ly. usually are better choices than those containing cake powder, be cause then a woman can fill the com pact with her own powder. Also on mast women's lists are comb brush and mirror sets. Sterling sil vcr still is the most elegant thin, you can buy. Don't buy just any set marked "sterling" even if it look: like a bargain. Be sure it's a good heavy sterling made by a good reliable company. If your funds arc limited but you .still want silver, choose good silver pliite rather than a light sterling. Among Ihc newest hair sets this year is a lovely one fashioned aftei n Victorian pattern. Three-piece, made of platic, the set comes in ivory and several pastel colors. It's especially suitable for young girls and is charming in period bedroom. Perfumes and can dc colognes arc, of course, old favorites. But if you're going in for perfumes it's a good idea to know something about what you're getting. There's one good rule (virtually never observed) about buying perfumes: Take your lime. Wander past the perfumes counter one day and gut the sulsogirl to put a drop or two of scents you like best on a piece of blotting paper. Label each piece of paper, take it home and sec if the odor lasts over night. Cheaper perfumes contain less essential oil. so their odor won't last so well. Manicure sets are favorites always, too. Year after year they continue to be close to the top of the selling lists. But be sure the sets you buy have good nail files, scissors, orange sticks and a. supply of emery boardsa—s well as the polish polish remover and cuticle oil or cream. One of the nicest sets we've seen is of brown pin-seal, looks like a book and snaps so the bottles dont rattle and the implements can't get dislodged.
