2018 Holiday Gift Ideas

  • 3 min read


It's that time of year again— the weather is cooling, holiday decorations are hitting shelves and we're all starting to plan which gifts we're going to buy for each person we love. There's something really special about giving a gift you know the recipient will not only adore but also use regularly. And, not to toot the jane iredale horn, but gorgeous makeup that helps maintain your skin's health is definitely a gift people will love (toot! toot!). We know makeup and skincare lovers come in all shapes, sizes, and personalities. So, here's some inspiration on what to give all of the different women (and some men) in your lives.

The Nurturers

We all know the woman who is always putting others before themselves. They're the first to offer a helping hand and the last to ask for help. This woman may be your mom, but she could also be your best friend, daughter, sister or wife. Regardless of who they are to you, they deserve a little indulgence this holiday season. If you give her something that gives back, you receive double points!

Gift Ideas for The Nurturers

The Fashionista

She's the first person you ask for fashion advice. She always knows what's on trend, but she's never the woman who gets sucked into flash-in-a-pan trends (and she'll write you a 1,000 word essay on the difference between "on trend" and "trendy.") If you know a fashionista, they're likely all about the eye makeup or the lip products, so here's what to get them.

The Fitness Lover

She's your gym buddy, the person you call at 6am to motivate you to get out of bed and into your sneakers for a quick run. She's also all about living a healthy lifestyle. That means treating her body (inside and out) with respect and never putting anything toxic in her mouth or on her skin. When picking a gift for her think clean makeup with SPF, organic skincare, and healthy skincare supplements.

The Nature Lover

Like Jane, this woman would spend the entire day in her garden if she could. When she isn't working or gardening, she might be volunteering at her local humane society or advocating for an endagered species. She's always environmentally concious, and loves products that support both animals and the Earth.

The Insta-Star

We all know a budding Insta-star. She loves documenting her life through videos and her beauty tips are likely reposted by thousands of people. She's an influencer in her own right, and built a community all on her own. If your daughter or niece is the next big Instagram or YouTube star, she'll love the shimmery and high-impact products.

The Conscious Groomer

This is the man that won't settle for washing his face with whatever's on the counter. He knows that even men should take care of their skin, and he takes simple steps to maintain a healthy skincare regimen. While his focus is his skin, he also knows the benefit of a little concealer because, let's face it, we all have those days.
