At the top of everyone’s wish list is to look good and feel good. Thankfully, you can help your favorite friend or family member do just that this holiday season. How exactly? By gifting one or more organic beauty products that they may not buy themselves. Check out some of the best – and most natural – gift ideas for the people on your shopping list who demand, or simply deserve safe, effective, and even swoon-worthy organic beauty products.
Everyone loves a hot shower or warm bath after a long day. But for those on your gift list, not any wash will do. You’ll want one with eye-catching packaging and organic ingredients that will nourish the skin long after the tub has drained. An extra bonus? Fun scents with names like Mother Teda's Tickled-Pink Grapefruit Natural Body Wash and Sister Shaye's Lullaby Lavender Natural Body Wash.
Your skin, as lovely as it is, is continuously shedding dead skin cells. Exfoliating products can help make sure they don’t build up and clog your pores. Enter body scrubs. Gentle scrubs like Gran Mona's Smooth Orange Organic Sugar Scrub used two to three times per week will help keep skin silky smooth instead of rough and dry. Share the love, and this little beauty secret, by adding a body scrub or sugar scrub to your gift-giving list.
We know, we know, you thought the point was to eliminate oily skin and now you’re reading that oils actually make great gifts? Here’s the truth about oils – they actually help boost the natural oils your skin already produces to keep it hydrated and protected. Use Gran Marvolene's Lavish Lavender Organic Oil on its own, mix it with lotion (or simply inhale its especially pleasant aroma). It is one multi-faceted beauty product you may have a hard time giving and not keeping.
Balms – The word itself actually means to “heal or soothe the skin.”What better beauty-related gift is there than one that offers healing?If your recipient is young in years, consider Baby Isaiah's Butter-Up Coconut Organic Balm to soothe the little one’s scrapes, rashes, and even skin disorders like eczema. Or to help a special someone survive those cold winter months, consider giving Cousin Sam's Cool Eucalyptus Organic Chest Rub. Most importantly, don’t forget that organic lip balm like Sister Stu's Sweet-Talk Organic Orange Lip Balm makes a great stocking stuffer…and it keeps those lips kissable for unplanned run-ins under the mistletoe!
If you’re not sure that just one product will show your true holiday spirit, put together a basket full of your favorite organic soaps and skin care items. Line the basket with tissue paper and accent it with colorful ribbon. Before you buy any beauty products, don’t be afraid to check the ingredient list to make sure those so-called “natural” products truly are natural. You’ll want to buy only certified organic beauty products that are paraben-free. Giving safe, nourishing, organic skincare products as gifts might just be the best decision you make this holiday season -- much better than that insanely large inflatable snowman you bought for the front lawn!
