Branche Beauty Sleep - Creme Charmeuse Case
Jennifer Appenrodt, Commerce Editor
"I'm giving my mom this mulberry silk pillowcase since she was just complaining about seeing more wrinkles on the side she sleeps on! It minimizes the skin creasing caused by pillows while also smoothing the hair cuticle (no crazy bedhead!)."
|Scotch Nails - Whisper
Megan Scott, VP of Ecommerce
"I'm putting this nail polish in my niece's stocking. She's 5 years old and loves painting her nails and Scotch is safe, water based and non-toxic."
|Recipe for Men - Facial Moisturizer +
Letitia Wells, Director of Buying
"My boyfriend’s skincare regime is very simple and fuss-free, which is one of the reasons why he loves Recipe For Men! They offer great products that really help with mens’ specific skin issues."
|Lotus Wei - Mini Mist Collection
Jamie Park, Education Specialist
"I can’t wait to give this to my roommate because she loves perfume! These mists are designed to match your mood and she loves spritzing on different scents depending on how she feels. She’ll never be without a fresh floral scent this holiday season."
|Baby Foot - Foot Exfoliate Peel
Courtney Dunlop, Executive Editor, YouBeauty
"I bought Baby Foot for every woman in my family. They are going to be amazed at how the dead skin literally peels off their feet. It's such a satisfying experience that I had to share."
|First Aid Beauty - Feel FAB Kit
Ni'Kita Wilson, Cosmetic Chemist
"My sister is an experimenter so kits are a perfect way for her to play without commitment. This year she will be getting this FAB skincare kit!"
|Marula Oil - The Leakey Collection
Ray Aziz, Customer Service Manager
"This is the perfect gift for the person who has everything! I'm giving this to my sister. This oil will naturally brighten up her complexion without the need for makeup."
|A Perfume Organic – Urban Organic
Herschel Thompson, Director of Marketing
"For the last 15 years, my mother has used the same perfume as an ex-girlfriend. This has caused significant emotional distress and confusion. In an effort to remedy the situation, I’m giving my mother this perfume since I love the crisp, clean and invigorating botanical scent."
|Clarisea - Perfecting Clay Mask
Julie Giusti, Social Media Manager
"I know my dad would be into the idea of trying a face mask, but he's too much of a tough guy to actually do it on his own. This will be perfect for his sometimes-oily skin, and the clean packaging won't make him feel high-maintenance."
|Revolution Organics - Candy Cane Kisses Lip Gloss Duo Set
Veronica Ritter, Editorial Intern
"A girl can never have too many lipglosses so I'm getting my sister this adorable set. It's perfect because the two shades, light and dark, offer different looks to have fun and play with. On top of the natural-looking colors, it also moisturizes with shea butter. My sister and her lips will be thanking me!"
|Sophyto - Tocotrienol Super Skin Concentrate
Laura Kenney, Editor-in-Chief
"This has changed my skin. I'm worried about both acne and aging and its whopping concentration of healing Vitamin E targets both. My skin's calmer, brighter, and to a point where people are actually asking me what I'm using. That, to me, is the sign of a product that really works, and I want to give that feeling to everyone I know. This serum is skin-confidence, bottled."
