Wondering what to get the leading pals on your holiday list? After all, they’re the ones who have consistently had your back during one rollercoaster of a year, and what better way to show you care about them - and the world around them - than with aconscientious beauty gift that’s both chic and clean?
From shimmer-swept eye kits to saturated lip crayons (and plenty of luxury skincare and creams to help brace them for the cold ahead), we’ve rounded up gift ideas from fellow green beauty brands for elevating their everyday and play.
Give the minimalist a chance to shine *just enough* with this sleek recycled pouch from Ilia, which unzips to reveal a lengthening mascara, balmy tinted lip oil, multi-stick, and gel liner pencil - perfect for making the transition from that Zoom holiday party or happy hour.
We curated our cult favorites and top-selling shades into 3 different trilogies, ready and wrapped for anyone on your list. Choose from the Classics, the Pops, or the Liquid Assets. The perfect set to tell your story or gift to someone really special.
Buying skincare for someone else can be challenging, which is why we love this low-fuss, high-reward set from Tata Harper. Not only does it have everything she needs to build a proper regimen, including the brand’s award-winning Resurfacing Mask (yes, it’s that good), but it’s formulated for a wide range of skin types and concerns (meaning she won’t be offended when she reads the box).
Bite Beauty’s crayons offer the color payoff and forgiveness of a crayon with the precision of a pencil. This trio in particular includes three versatile shades - Negroni (candy apple), Anejo (medium pinkish brown) and Sazerac (neutral pink-nude) - for different moods and occasions (last time we checked, it was also on sale).
Protect her skin from cold temps and harsh winds with these argan oil and shea butter-rich body butters from Josie Maran, which smell and glide on like a dream, absorb easily (no grease!), and can be split up for stocking stuffers and add-ons. Currently sniffing: Vanilla Apricot.
Do her prep work with this dynamic duo from Lilah B., starring two of the brand’s infamous glow-getters. They contain jojoba oil and fig extract for giving skin a moisturizing antioxidant boost and come in convenient, commute-friendly spritzers. (If you’re looking for extra credit, the brand’silluminator has stolen the hearts of at least 8,000 Sephora shoppers.)
Speaking of commuting, we can’t get enough of this colorful curation of minis from Drunk Elephant, including hair and body hits such as the brand’s Wild Marula Tangle Spray (a must for windy days) and Kamili Body Cleanser (so creamy). Scoop it up for the friend who’s always (or, um, seldom) prepared.
This quartet of blendable, next-level naturals from Roen Beauty oozes luxury - a promising suitor for the girl who likes to party or pretty much has everything.
We still need protection from harmful rays during winter months (especially when hitting the slopes), and what better way to show her you care than with a chic sunscreen dopp kit? This quilted case was designed as part of Supergoop!’s latest collab with MZ Wallace and comes pre-packed with the brand’s beloved Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 (goes on clear for all skin tones) andCloud 9 100% Mineral Sun Balm SPF 40 (she won’t even know she’s wearing it).
Great for lower budgets and little somethings, this sleek ensemble from EcoTools has everything she needs to perfect her makeup look, complete with a tray for easy storing. (Bonus points if you throw in theseScented Soap Roses for the ultimate girl’s night in.)
Biossance’s overnight set includes the brand’sSqualane + Omega Repair Cream, Squalane + Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum and Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream (so refreshing!) for repairing skin as you snooze - perfect for the busy girl who could use a few extra hours in the day.
Add an extra pop of sparkle to your present by throwing in one of our shimmery shades or pile on the generosity by stacking on one of our just-dropped Trilogy Boxes, and peep more products our team can’t get enough of here.
