1. A gorgeous cruelty-free and vegan green créme nail polish for getting them in the mood for cozy nights and that "sipping hot chocolate by the fireplace" mood. It's a one-step polish (meaning they don't need a base coat or topcoat) and has argan oil, pro vitamin B5, and vitamin C for stronger nails!

2. A cruelty-free peach lip balm to keep their lips smooth and soothed this season. With natural fruit extracts like peach (of course) and strawberry, a sweet peach scent, and the cute bear packaging to top it off, they'll find this gift absolutely ~peachy~!

3. A soft silicone brush that'll really get into their pores and deeply cleanse, massage, and exfoliate without irritating. It foams up nicely and the funny jellyfish shape will make their routine even more fun!

4. A Y2K-themed eyeshadow palette to take them back in time to the 2000s this winter. With three different color options, the fun bright shades will be perfect to dress up any holiday look.

5. An egg mellow 6-in-1 cream because it's a firming cream, serum, priming moisturizer, neck cream, eye cream, and sleeping mask! What all this means is that their skin will be bouncy, resilient, and well-moisturized. It's so egg-cellent, they probably won't look at another moisturizer again.

6. A pack of pimple patches they can slap onto those pesky zits that just have to appear right before Christmas. I swear by this brand, and these patches are both effective and fast. Just leave it on overnight and get ready to enter a new week with clearer skin.

7. An eyebrow soap to make their natural brows look thicker and fluffier à la Lily Collins, and set brow hairs in place with its natural beeswax formula. So if they've wanted to rock fluffy, natural brows since forever, you can give them that chance!

8. A hair treatment that works its magic in eight seconds to give them shinier, more hydrated locks — no matter their hair type. Magic indeed!

9. A peach cotton finish powder because it uses peach and Japanese saké (yep!) to set makeup, absorb oil and sweat, and deliver a matte finish that's silky, not dry. Those same extracts also soothe troubled skin, prevent dryness, and promote skin elasticity, making it perfect for acne-prone types. The sweet peach scent is great too. Show me another powder like this one!

10. A cute water gel lip tint to hydrate their lips with soapberry extract. It tints completely, leaving them with juicy color. Plus, look at the ice cream packaging!

11. These gorgeous holiday-themed nail wraps that'll make them want to show off their nails all holiday season long, and is a huge upgrade from basic nail polish! Their at-home mani just got much fancier (and easier!).

12. A ~surreal~ iridescent mermaid scrunchie to elevate their daily (read: boring) ponytail or bun in a totally dreamy way. They can leave it on their wrist as a pretty accessory too!

13. A set of cica sheet masks that uses damask rose, cherry blossom, green tea, and of course, cica, to deeply hydrate, brighten, and soothe and cool damaged, irritated skin. Plus, the sheet masks themselves are silky soft and will feel so nice on skin, they'll never want to take them off. Their skin will be left feeling like velvet!

14. A velvet lip tint to grant their lips a long-lasting petal-like bloom of color that's velvety, weightless, and bold. Even when it fades, it'll leave a pretty stain. Because who has time for precise lip liner and perfectly applied lipstick every day? Their lips will look like a flower.

15. These adorable mini wave barrettes for adding a retro pop of color to their hairstyles, even when their hair is just down! These'll photograph really well too, as you can see!

16. A silk hair serum to save their hair texture and take it from rough to silky (it's literally in the name!). It is lightweight and versatile, using nutrients to boost hair health, soften strands, hydrate, and provide shine. It's a must-have!

the bottle

17. A bottle of Bio-Oil because it has its own cult of devotees; that's how sworn by it is! Many use it to help fade scars (even the oldest ones), soothe dryness, and moisturize without clogging pores. It's famous for how it can be used literally anywhere on your body! During this pandemic, people also use it for their super dry hands from hand-washing and sanitizing.

18. A multi-use soothing aloe vera gel that feels nothing but refreshing on skin. Whether they have acne, inflammation, sunburn, or even shaving irritation, they can use this for immediate relief and hydration. It soothes where you need it to — it's literally in the name!

19. An inexpensive but effective lash serum to nourish for healthier and stronger lashes! Plus, applying this along your eye line helps soothe your delicate eye area from heavy makeup and liner as well.

20. A light and creamy jelly cleanser that'll balance and soften skin with ingredients so gentle it's even safe for your eyes. They'll never have to deal with that tight, stripped feeling that's common after using a face wash. Sounds like a dream!

21. A cult-fave hair protein mask to restore the purity of their hair. It helps with oil control, frizziness, damaged hair, the works! It's lightweight too so no heavy ingredients involved.

22. A pack of oil-blotting sheets made with natural bamboo charcoal to whisk away the oil on their entire face anytime, anywhere, any day. The sheets are soft, don't disturb makeup, and come with 100 in a pack so they last forever. Just blot and you'll be good as new!

23. A matte liquid lipstick that'll really make a statement and dress them up, even when the rest of them is dressed down. And because it pretty much never comes off, they don't have to keep reapplying 😉.

24. An adorable headband for keeping back their hair and bangs while they cleanse, do their skincare routine, or apply makeup. There's plenty of uses for this little item!

25. A lavender calming bar that uses real lavender petals that you can see around the soap to gently exfoliate while anti-bacterial properties temper inflammation and irritation. They get a deluxe soothing experience and softer skin!

26. A body brush to gently massage, exfoliate, and improve blood circulation. It has rounded nodules and can be used in both wet and dry brushing. Reviewers say it helps for cellulite, dry skin, and stretch marks! Plus, it's durable so it'll last you.

27. A lip lifter gloss because not only is it super hydrating but also enhances their lips, making them look plump and adding color so they can wear it alone or over lipstick. Little effort, big results! Flaky, washed-out lipstick? No thanks!
