Let’s get this gift guide party started, shall we?!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE putting together all these pretty things, and I want them to be a go to resource for you all season long which is why I do them!  I hope I’m saving you a few steps in your busy day to knock some shopping off of your list with these beauty and self care gifts for the gals on your list!  I have so many great ideas in this post, tons of different ways for you to create your very own little gift sets!  Read on my friends!

Give the gift of relaxation

2020 has been a crazy year, so why not give a gift of calm?  I started using Equilibria back in March, and I’ve seen such a BIG difference in my overall mood and level of anxiety.  I take the CBD drops and the capsules, but they have these fun bath bombs and soaking salts which would be the perfect gift for anyone that needs some pampering! I love this bath pillow from Amazon – would be a great addition to the salts or bath bombs! You could also gift someone a subscription (they can cancel at anytime), and print out their order + gift it with this cute pink pill box!  While we are on the topic of bath, the Beautycounter Ultimate Rewnewal Bath Set is AHHH-MAZING!  This is truly a one stop shop gift right down to the packaging.  Dry brushing is great for removing winter time skin, and the Beautycounter body oil leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated –NOT greasy.  The body wash by Beautycounter is another fun gift idea, and would be perfect paired with these silicone sponges.  I’ve been using these for several months now and they are SO much better than the colorful loofahs that can get gross fast.

Hair and Nailcare Gifts

One of my latest Amazon beauty finds is the Tangle Teezer brush. It comes in several colors and is great for using on wet hair to get the knots out.  Throw in your favorite dry shampoo and you have a great gift idea for any teen girl, fellow mom friend, hairstylist etc on your list!  I also love these affordable satin pillowcases.  They are great for reducing staticky hair, and for your skin too!  These super absorbent hair towels are great alone or added with the Tangle Teezer and maybe a gift card to their fave salon.  Olive + June is a brand I started using earlier this year and I haven’t paid for a manicure since.  The poppy tool is awesome, and really does help give you a controlled and salon style mani without the salon.  The Olive and June topcoat is a MUST.  I swear it is what makes these manicures last for 7+ days with NO CHIPPING.  The brand is sold at Target too, so it’s super convenient!  It would make a great gift for any teens you have on your list too as I know they can sometimes be difficult to shop for. Pair an Olive and June nail polish with a great cuticle set from Tweezerman!  By far the best out there for clippers and tweezers!

Beautycounter Holiday Sets

I’ve mentioned Beautycounter products a few times already in this post, but I’ve got a few more great gift ideas!  The best part is – you don’t even have to wrap these if you don’t want to because the packaging alone is FAB!  They also have a ton of sets that are perfect for breaking apart into separate gifts for people on your list like teachers, friends, neighbors etc which I will get to soon. First though, is the Brightside Duo. It is is my everyday go to.  I use the C Serum everyday, and the peel every other day.  If you have a friend that’s been talking about wanting to get into a new skincare regimen, this is a great place to start.

The Counter+ Charcoal facial mask is a great way to pamper someone.  Pair it with these inexpensive + cute little silicone make up brushes and these black washcloths for an easy application/removal and nice gift set!  It’s like a mini facial from the comforts of home!

I’ve shared my love for Beautycounter lip gloss in a recent blog post which you can read here, and their holiday gloss sets are perfection!  The lip jelly shimmer sets are a must for yourself, but also for breaking apart and throwing one into a larger gift for someone.  They are also completely safe so giving them to any girls, tweens, and teens on your list is acceptable too!  Layla is getting one in her stocking, and I just put one in a 7 year olds bday gift as well!  I love the Beyond Gloss trio set too!  This would be perfect paired with a fun lippy clip!  These are great for attaching to the inside of your purse or gym bag so you never lose your gloss/chapstick! AND, I have promo code from Lippy Clip too!  Use EMILY10 to get 10% off your purchase!  They have sanitizer clips too, tis the season! 🙂

Other Beauty + Self Care Ideas

A great stocking stuffer (male or female) are the 1oz. Bag Balm tins.  I use this stuff year round, but particularly in the winter on dry chapped lips.  I sometimes will use this as a base layer before applying lip gloss/lipstick.

If you’re looking for a fresh, not overpowering scent to gift this holiday season look no further.  The Glossier fragrance is perfect for all ages (I gifted this to my mom last year and she’s still a fan).  It was one of my top sellers last season!  Free shipping over $30 too!

A pack of these colorful spa headbands are a great item to add to beauty gifts.  One pack will cost you less than $10 and you can break it apart into multiple gifts!  WINNING!

These clear, acrylic makeup organizers are a pretty way to store and display items.  You can build and create your own depending on how many items pieces you need!

My favorite cosmetic travel bag would make a fun gift!  You can stuff it with virtually any of the items listed above!  And it comes in TONS of prints + patterns too!

An ice roller is a fantastic way to reduce puffiness in the face.  It also helps with headaches, which is what I find myself using this for the most!

If you don’t have a Jade Roller yet, treat yourself to one and grab one as a gift.  It’s the perfect addition to any lotions or serums listed above!

And that concludes this gift guide!  I hope you have checked someone off your list {and maybe treated yo’self too} along the way!  Am I forgetting anything that I should add?  Tell me in the comments!
