COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Ideas In Gifts For The Ladi ' LIKE (HE IN EIFI LINES Try To Learn Her Favorite Brands Of Lotions, Perfume, Makeup fcy ALICIA I1AKT NBA Service Start' Writer The avemge woman on your , Ciiristma.s .shopping list, whether ; .she i.s 9 or 90 or somewhere iu be- I /.ween, wants generous quanutie.s o:' the things that men pretend to con- .side;- really 100 .silly and. in gen- <-ntI. jufii plain oui-anct-ou: luxuries. In other words, she. wants creams Dnd lotions anci perfume and makeup. Even thoug'li you think beauty item* are silly and toe, 100 luxurious, give them LO her unyv/ay. Thai i.s, unless you'd j rathej- yourself than the recipient. While you're about it, you might as well know ihat she prefers one i'ai lipstick in a beauii- lu! ctise to a pint-sized kit con- 'uuning liny dabs of two or three preparations. (We'll come to kits later. There are kits and then again jhere are k,ii£. you know.) She'd like a small 1'lacon of exquisite perfume belter than a lui-ie jug of junk. Unless you kno.v what her favorite cleansing rmd night creams are, better give her some wonderful bath oil or a couple of huge cakes of good bath soap or some sumptuous, foamy bath powder rather than cream:, you think she might like-. GIFT ORDER OF FACIALS However, if you do know what creams she uses, you can't go wrc^ on a large jar of each. In fact, you can't do better, except by playing Giant Santa and giving her a gift order for a couse of facials at her j favorite beauty salon. Little girls will like the smart manicure kits in cases whic^i car. be used for handbags: soap in animal, vegetable und fruit' .•ihdp;:;; irnagiitjilve dresser s.^t with the combs, brushes and mirrors scaled down in si^e to fit small, childish hands, and ligha;; scented bath powder, packed with soap suitable .for a child's skin.

Brand new and sure to make the sophisticate happy are: a red and white striped candy stick which holds' a box of dusting powder and a lipstick; : a wheel of fortune, containing bath prep- i.ratio::s and makeup (the top may be-used a>; a roulette wheel); a gold compact • with a show horse in enamel on the top; a glittering Christmas tree bauble which holds a flacon of perfume. If you give a fitted weekend case, make sure that the preparations can be securely anchored to the case. Nothing- is more demoralizing than to open a bag and find creams, lotions, bottles and toothpaste in a veritable knot with nightgown, slippers and handkerchiefs.
