You can also take her to the complimentary Clinique Pick Your Pout Lip Makeover service, by making an appointment at any Clinique counter, so she can try on the shades for herself.
8. Wish her the best of luck
Nutcrackers are linked to Christmas because of the German tradition of gifting them as a sign of good luck.
