Annie's 2020 Holiday Gift Guide!

by Annie Lawless
While it’s been a crazy year, it’s important to celebrate the good in life with those near and dear this holiday season. We all could use a little love and cheer, and what better way to spread cheer than giving! I’ve compiled my gift guide with something for everyone, based on some of my most favorite gifts I’ve personally received, and things I am currently loving. I hope these gift ideas are helpful and make your holiday shopping easier, more fun, and maybe you will find a little something for yourself too!

GIFTS FOR GREAT HAIR

This mask is my go-to for an at home spa night when I want to give myself some extra TLC! It’s a great gift for this time when we are all home more because it feels rich, decadent, and luxurious. Nothing makes my hair softer or shinier than this mask.
This luxurious gift set contains all of the beauty sleep essentials. It comes with a silk pillowcase, sleep mask, scrunchie, and 2 skinny scrunchies to help prevent hair breakage and creasing. As someone who colors my hair, I now only use silk scrunchies and pillowcases to protect my already fragile strands, and this set is such a great all-in-one package.
 
This is a splurge, but so worth the investment and anyone would be thrilled to receive this beautiful gift! I purchased mine two years ago and cannot use anything else because I am so used to the way it feels in my hand and dries my hair. It is so lightweight, fast, and powerful while protecting from heat damage and being gentle on my hair. 

 

GIFTS FOR THE MAKEUP LOVER

This is a great beauty gift, because it is truly universal and for all skin types! It is a 3-in-1 skincare and makeup prep product with peptides, shea butter, rosehip oil, and sea buckthorn that acts as your serum, moisturizer, and primer. It is perfect for the mama in your life or girl on the go that needs something quick, easy, and convenient to cover all of her pre-makeup skincare bases in the morning.
 
This gorgeous little box is the perfect package for gifting this holiday season! I created the Baby Collection while I was pregnant with my daughter, and was feeling very inspired by this color story.  The romantic and feminine pink, red, and violet tones embody this special time in my life and are perfect for creating gorgeous holiday looks!
 
BIOGLITTER
Our newest launch is such a fun and appropriate gift for the glam girl in your life! These plant- based biodegradable glitters are perfect festive toppers for any eyeshadow look, gorgeous on the inner corner for an unexpected pop, and absolutely stunning worn alone all over the lid for that sparkly, extra special effect. Coming soon!
 
I always wear two shades of blush to create the most beautiful, healthy flush with dimension and gradient to really bring life and vitality to the skin. I use a lighter, more natural shade all over my cheekbones, and pop a brighter shade just on the apples of the cheeks for longer staying power and vibrancy. I curated these blush bundles that are the perfect pairings in complementary tones to achieve the look, complete with our ultra-soft cruelty free Make Me Blush Brush that applies your blush effortlessly every time. 
   
This is soooo cute for the glam girl in your life! This nylon pouch is an ideal size for carrying makeup essentials and brushes, and is easily wipeable so it doesn’t get disgusting. I love that it says what’s inside, making it perfect for travel and staying organized.
 
Need I say more? This is a basic, essential, necessity for anyone who wears makeup an such a fool proof gift because you know it will get used and you can never have enough. I love throwing a few of these in stockings and party favor bags for my makeup loving friends and family members.

GIFTS THAT ARE COZY

This is the coziest, most plush robe I have ever had! I feel instantly transported to a warm, cozy fireside in this decadent double-fleece robe. It is perfect for weekend mornings and nights in this holiday season!!
 
Super warm, thick, and snuggly. Need I say more? We don’t often treat ourselves to beautiful socks, which is why these beyond comfortable pair make such a great gift! I wear these all winter long under my boots and around the house when I want to be ultra comfortable.
 
These slippers feel so decadent and are such a treat for the homebody in your life! They are sooo cute, affordable, and comfortable with a soft memory foam insole, and have a nice solid sole that can be worn outside if needed. Because let’s be real, sometimes you just want to wear slippers to run errands.
 

GIFTS THAT SMELL GOOD

This unique and woodsy scent is my current favorite for winter! It is light, sexy, and perfect for the clean fragrance lover in your life.

This time of year, I am a sucker for pumpkin everything, and this candle is particularly delicious. I have been burning this non-stop and it fills the house with the most cozy, and comforting scent of holiday time.

GIFTS FOR GREAT SKIN

This gradual tanning lotion is my-go self-tanner because I can apply it like body cream out of the shower, while building a gorgeous natural tan that is forgiving and easy to use. It also smells great!

 

This is a must have for dry skin! This was actually gifted to me by a friend after I was complaining how dry my skin was during pregnancy, and it quickly became my favorite body cream because it actually works. It is so hydrating, sinks into the skin, and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling despite being very thick. Every time I apply this, my skin feels instantly better.
 
This is a beautiful face oil to gift a friend for an extra luxurious skincare experience because it is made of 100% pure, olive derived squalene. Squalene is non-comedogenic because it mimics the skins natural oils, so it is an oil that actually balances excess oil, soothes, and promotes a more plump and firm appearance. I use this so much during the winter months to keep my skin glowy, hydrated, and healthy.
 
My skin is extra dry in the winter, and this is a great mask that is suitable for all skin types because it is super hydrating, yet not too heavy! I love to put this on at night and sleep in it for deep hydration and baby soft skin by morning.
