Best Beauty Gifts

The holiday season is upon us. How did that happen?! 

My favorite things to give friends and family throughout the year, especially during the holiday season, are my favorite health and beauty products. 

Maybe it's just me, but I love trying out new beauty products and sampling new healthy recipes. Sometimes finding simple and practical gifts for friends and family can be overwhelming. I hope this helps! 

Here are a few of my favorite health and beauty picks from 2017 that will make perfect gifts for the holidays.

Sara Happ. HANDS DOWN my favorite gift to give. I have posted about Sara's products before. My closest friends know these products are a permanent staple in my beauty regime. I use the lip scrub daily, and never go to sleep without applying the lip slip. The Plump & Prime was released this year, too! I have consistently used it for 4 weeks and can tell a significant difference! The packaging is so beautiful you don't even need to wrap them. 



REPLICA - I must confess. I solely purchased this perfume because of their branding but have been hooked since! It is my absolute favorite line of fragrances. When I wear Beach Walk, I dream that Oklahoma will one day sprout up an ocean. This little set is the perfect gift for friends that have a more minimalistic style.

The Stranded Shop - I've said it before, and I'll say it again. This product is AMAZING. It doesn't leave your hair with that white powdery look and isn't chalky. It is THE PERFECT powder dry shampoo. PERIOD. 

Violet Grey - Buying makeup, or any beauty product, for friends and family can ultimately be a major fail. You may love a new eye shadow palette, face serum, or oil, and your sister/best friend, well, not so much. Instead of spending money on products that will be put in a drawer and quickly forgotten, invest in this cute little makeup bag, and you'll be loved forever. It's simple and understated, but the recipient can fill it with her own fave products.

Kristin Ess: Target - All of my dreams have officially come true [well, close. If I could actually sit in Kristin Ess's chair, my life would be complete]. So, since she lives in California, I will settle for simply using her products as the next best thing! I am loving her line that recently launched at Target! These are my two favorites, and they come in an adorable little set. 

essie - My mother is QUEEN when it comes to gifting themed baskets at Christmas. It's a fun tradition I like to participate in, too. So, if you are in the market for a fun themed basket, you can never go wrong with a DIY home manicure kit, starting off, of course, with your favorite Essie polish. It adds a fun personal touch to your gift. My current favorite color is Wicked.



A few of these products have been in my beauty rotation for quite some time. I am a creature of habit. When I find something I love, I rarely let it go, or I always end up circling back.
