Making time to care for your body isn't always on everyone's checklist, but we think gifting a handmade marble body brush could entice them to take an extra five minutes to reap the exfoliating, nervous system-soothing benefits associated with dry brushing. Plus, it comes in six gorgeous marble colors.
If your loved one is into eyeshadow, you literally can't go wrong with a Pat McGrath palette. This one comes with 10 buildable, high-impact shades that sculpt, highlight, and transform the eyes.
Gifting hair products can be tricky. However, this three-blend oil works for even my dryness-prone 4c curls. If you snag this for a curly-haired person in your life, tell them we recommend this oil as a pre-poo. It's truly a game-changer (and the packaging is beautiful).
Supplements may not seem giftable, but for those who already take them daily or have mentioned wanting to integrate supplements into their routine, starting with a balancing blend is a nice place to start. The mixture is made with medicinal mushroom extracts and herbs that decrease fatigue, protect the immune system, and improve blood flow. Plus, this supplement pairs well with coffee, milk, and teas.
For the avid matcha drinker, this multi-tasking powder superfood blend serves up a guaranteed boost of energy. At the same time, your body soaks up the anti-inflammatory benefits and antioxidants, giving you healthier skin from the inside out. Try it in a smoothie or as a latte!
Resting isn't something that needs to be earned. This mantra might be difficult to get your hard-working best friend to understand fully, but CBD could be just what they need to help them feel relaxed.

Giving the gift of skincare is one thing that never goes out of style. Formulated by board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Chaneve Jeanniton, this vitamin C serum comes highly recommended. Even if your friend doesn't send a thank you note, their skin will show its gratitude.
This toothpaste from Twice, an oral care brand co-founded by Lenny Kravitz, is designed to help you start your day off right. It contains refreshing wintergreen and peppermint and is formulated to whiten teeth, decrease sensitivity, and strengthen enamel. Also nice: It's vegan, non-GMO, and cruelty-free. (The brand also offers a flavor designed for nighttime, with calming vanilla and lavender.)
Lipstick wearers typically have a signature shade. However, some are open to trying new formulas or striking new hues. UOMA Beauty's metallic lipstick offers six shades in a bold red tube. Whichever hue you decide to gift, we know it'll be a shimmering winner.
Fenty Beauty's foundation is one of the brand's highlights, but can we take a moment to talk about the Gloss Bomb? The universal gloss works on bare lips, liners, and over matte lipsticks when you want a little hydration. This trio comes in a dainty mini-set, so you don't have to choose just one.
Buying a fragrance for someone can be hit-or-miss. With this seven-piece set, your loved one can take their time finding their new favorite scent.
Eye serums are a must to keep the most delicate part of our skin hydrated. However, they're still an overlooked beauty item, especially for those just building a skincare routine.

If you're gifting this experience, you can purchase and send a gift card.
