It's All Funktional...

I'm was just cruising thru Etsy today looking for some great handmade gifts I could give this holiday season. When I stumbled upon Funktional Spas shoppe. What really caught my eye was the "Men's Holiday Gift Combo."

It's so rare to find items like this in a men's type scent. I don't know about you, but I love to snuggle up to my hubby when he's wearing an a great smelling cologne. This gift box is perfectly priced at just $15.00!

If you looking for something more girly, check out the Holiday Tin ~ Lip Gloss and Perfume Set,

or the Holiday Relax & Be Fine Combo. They would be perfect for teacher gifts, co-workers or your favorite niece. They also retail for just $15.00.

Whoever's on your list this holiday season, I'm sure would love to get the gift of pampering themselves in goodness from Funktional Spa.
