Christmas Gifts for the Ladies in Your Life (Under $20) makes it easy to get beautiful, safe, and fun gifts into the hands of the women in your life!
I don’t know about you, but every year I go through the same motions: I freak out about how busy the holidays are barely skate into the Christmas break from school, only to remember on the last night that we haven’t done gifts for the teachers, staff, and other women in our lives who help with our kids. I’m sure if I had a yoga teacher or fitness instructor I’d panic about them too. Christmas gifts are hard in general, but when they’re for someone who you’re not particularly close to but who makes a massive difference in your life? Well, it’s even more difficult then.
While gift giving is not my strongest love language, I do love the gifts I give to be personal and meaningful. I want it to be obvious that I was thinking only about that person when I selected their gift! So this year I’m doing things a little differently, and thought I’d share here to inspire. Because truthfully – how good is it going to feel for the person you’re buying for if you have a beautiful thoughtful gift for them? And how good will it feel for YOU to have that beautiful, thoughtful gift done ahead of time? I know for me it has felt REALLY STINKING GOOD – much better than the procrastination/panic from the past 4 years!
Let me preface the next part with this: Beautycounter products make a great gift, any time. However, the holidays are super special because we have several different sets that can be broken into smaller gifts, all at really great price points. Heck, it’s even a great time to stock up for yourself! If you’re interested in seeing all of the holiday products just click here, and if you have questions about which ones are best for you or others you can always shoot me an email at hsdisarro (at) gmail (dot) com.
So here’s my gift idea: lip care and lip color are a great option for ANYONE, even the ones who don’t wear a lot of makeup. Even more importantly SAFER lip care/lip color are even better; I highly doubt we want the people we love slathering their lips in products that contain harmful ingredients and high levels of heavy metals. Right? Right. One of Beautycounter’s amazing holiday sets are the Mini Lip Gloss Vault and the Mini Color Intense Lipstick Vault. Both vaults contain 10 different lip colors that are not only universally flattering and beautiful, but come out to less than $8 (lipsticks) or less than $9 (lip glosses). Perfect for gifting!
Once you get the lip color then choose a cute, cheap mug (check Marshall’s, Home Goods, or even the Dollar Store for inexpensive but cute options), and grab a $5 (or more) Starbucks/Amazon gift card. Put the lip color and the card in a little cellophane bag, tie with a cute ribbon, and place in the mug. Done and done! Whether you’re using it as a teacher gift or a stocking stuffer, this 3-in-1 Christmas gift is the perfect way to show you care!
