Helga Surratt, president of About Faces Day Spa & Salon, has the task of shopping for a good friend who's a "fashionable, beautiful woman with great taste." To create an experience of pure indulgence, she's creating a gift bag filled with some of her favorite things. It starts with a bottle of champagne. Then a Tocca "Cleopatra" candle. Godiva chocolates are a must. And, of course, a Chenille robe from Nordstrom for cold days. "She can sit around her home [in her robe] with a bottle of Champagne, box of chocolates, while smelling the candle," Surratt said. "I think she'd really enjoy this."
