The Care 2020 Gift Guide!

A selection of gifts curated by the Care Team (descriptions below). 

I love the act of giving – as my sister says, it’s one of my love languages. To me, it’s more about knowing the person, what makes them tick, what they like, and how I can show them I care even when I can’t see them in person (thanks, 2020!) 

Together with Natalia, Care’s Marketing Manager, we’ve picked a few key, thoughtful items for the people below (you may know one or all of them) to gift. Take a look for present inspiration, from sweet and cosy, pretty to practical, and absolutely luxurious. 

The Beauty Enthusiast 

She’s the friend (or family member) who looks fully made up on Zoom even at 8:30 in the morning.  The Beauty Enthusiast swears by jade rollers and cross checks her beauty know-how on Byrdie.  We think she will absolutely love these: 

The Overachievers Set:  

An absolute must-have for someone who takes pride in great skincare.  

Makeup Fridge:  

We mentioned she’s a pro – and this little makeup fridge will keep all her products cool. 

The Home Edit Bath Storage Solution:  

Are you as obsessed with The Home Edit gals as we are? This is a super neat gift for someone who has a lot of skincare and makeup. 

Crown Affair Comb (12):  

If she’s into beauty, we’re thinking she’s also way into hair care.  This beautiful comb comes in a holiday giftset, too. 

Face Masks: A stylish way to keep her face protected, with light and pretty patterns by BAGGU. 

The Superhero  

She’s absolutely amazing – how does she get it all done? This goes out to the moms, essential workers and teachers that always give it their all. The Superhero in your life doesn’t treat herself much, but deserves the very best! 

The Complete Care Set (10):

Having all five clean essentials to complete her skincare routine is a real everyday luxury. 

The Always Pan (9):  

Truly the best multi-tasking pan out there, and a lifesaver when it comes to meal prep. 

Wine Club Membership (14) 

Cheers! Botanica, one of Natalia’s favorite restaurants and shops in LA, has a fabulous wine club membership.  

Milk Bar Cookie Tin 

Milk Bar makes delicious, unique cookies like the Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow – what a mouthful! 

Everlane Cashmere Sweater 

So cosy. Everlane has practically perfect sweaters for a reasonable price.  

Coffee & Tumblr Duo 

She definitely needs a cup of coffee to keep her going!  Natalia’s favorite DTC coffee brand makes this handy Companion Tumbler.   

The Self-Care Lover 

Everyday pampering is something we can all get into. The Self-Care Lover you know is all about bubble baths with scented candles, a relaxation playlist (that includes Enyaof course!) and curling up with a good book. 

The Beauty Rest Duo II:  

A luxurious skincare gift that helps renew and repair – all she has to do is sleep. 

Sea La Vie Bath Set 

An adorable set complete with body butter and bath bombs, from my go-to gifting shop Becket Hitch. 

Eileen Fisher Organic Cotton Boucle Scarf 

This Italian yarn plush scarf looks just about perfect for a chilly day (I’d wear it indoors too). 

Vibrate Higher Daily 

Take it from Natalia – she says this book is perfect for some self-care time. 

Feu de Bois Diptyque Candle (2) 

There’s nothing quite as elegant as a Diptyque candle, and this is one of our favorite scents. 

Classic Bathrobe, Parachute (2) 

Hang out in this classic, comfy bathrobe by Parachute. 

The WFH Star 

This morning, I couldn’t get on my daughter’s Zoom call because the iPad was on the fritz, so I texted the WFH star. She responded ASAP and helped us out – so I owe her a great gift! 

Fresh + Bright Set:  

A skincare duo that helps perk up skin and keep it dewy and hydrated. 

MMLa Fleur Sweatshirt/Sweater 

MMLa Fleur makes genius outfits for the working woman – and we think this one is great for WFH. Bonus – no dry cleaning! 

Blue Light Glasses at Warby Parker (5) 

These Warby Parker frames (available with or without prescription strength lenses) come in very handy these days with all that screen time. 

Cashmere Joggers, C by Bloomingdale’s (13) 

Natalia says these are the best cashmere joggers out there. You could even pair them with the MMLa Fleur Sweatshirt/Sweater above. 

Atomic Habits (6) 

A key book for anyone working from home who wants to make changes to their daily routine. 

ZZ Plant, The Sill 

Great for adding some life to your WFH office set up – and low maintenance too! 

The Skincare Newbie 

It feels good to support the friend who’s just getting started on her beauty journey.  

The Daily Care Essentials Set:  

She’ll be self-care ready with four clean essentials made to maintain healthy, glowing skin. 

Worthy Threads Rainbow Tie Dye Hoodie (8) 

Pretty much the cutest thing to wear whether you’re going for a walk, around the house, or washing your face! 

Cuyana Vanity Case (7) 

A stylish way to store all of those new skincare goodies. 

Classic Slippers by Parachute (3) 

To elevate her pampering and lounging experience. 

Lunya Washable Silk Sleep Mask 

I find I get much better sleep with a sleep mask on – especially this one! 

Hand Wash & Body Balm Duo 

Skincare doesn’t mean just your complexion. Aesop’s The Chance Companion set cares for the hands and body, too. 

Happy Holidays, 

Michelle 

Once an Estée Lauder Marketing Executive, Michelle is now a Care Skincare Staff Writer and a big fan of their simple approach to skincare.  She lives with her husband and two small children, who keep her busy  23/7.
