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:
An absolute must-have for someone who takes pride in great skincare.
We mentioned she’s a pro – and this little makeup fridge will keep all her products cool.
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.
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!
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 makes delicious, unique cookies like the Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow – what a mouthful!
So cosy. Everlane has practically perfect sweaters for a reasonable price.
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 Enya, of course!) and curling up with a good book.
A luxurious skincare gift that helps renew and repair – all she has to do is sleep.
An adorable set complete with body butter and bath bombs, from my go-to gifting shop Becket Hitch.
This Italian yarn plush scarf looks just about perfect for a chilly day (I’d wear it indoors too).
Take it from Natalia – she says this book is perfect for some self-care time.
There’s nothing quite as elegant as a Diptyque candle, and this is one of our favorite scents.
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!
A skincare duo that helps perk up skin and keep it dewy and hydrated.
MMLa Fleur makes genius outfits for the working woman – and we think this one is great for WFH. Bonus – no dry cleaning!
These Warby Parker frames (available with or without prescription strength lenses) come in very handy these days with all that screen time.
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.
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.
She’ll be self-care ready with four clean essentials made to maintain healthy, glowing skin.
Pretty much the cutest thing to wear whether you’re going for a walk, around the house, or washing your face!
A stylish way to store all of those new skincare goodies.
Classic Slippers by Parachute (3)
To elevate her pampering and lounging experience.
I find I get much better sleep with a sleep mask on – especially this one!
Skincare doesn’t mean just your complexion. Aesop’s The Chance Companion set cares for the hands and body, too.
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.
