Holiday Gift Guide: Skincare Gifts They’ll Actually Love Under $30

Holiday Gift Guide: Skincare Gifts They’ll Actually Love Under $30

Yep, you heard it here! Holiday shopping is now in full swing, so I thought I’d help you out with a list of badass gift ideas for anyone and everyone on your nice list this year. Think: holiday gift ideas for teachers, your mother-in-law, book club buds and even that super picky BFF who’s impossible to shop for!

So, ready to become a holiday hero? Sit back, relax and scroll through my top holiday skincare picks, all for around $30 or less. Oh, and I also made sure that I only suggested quality, family-owned businesses that you can feel good about supporting this holiday season.

Ready? Let’s dive in!

First and foremost, I love Skylar because it’s a natural fragrance brand. Even better? All of their scents are fresh and light. My favorite fragrance of theirs is Capri because I love citrus, but I’m tempted to try the spicy, seductive, warm Arrow scent for the holidays. This is a perfect gift for gal pals, Mom or Aunt Milly (who desperately needs a major perfume overall).

I love this simple, natural soap (it even has “simple” in the name!). Meant Simply lathers really well, plus it has a great unisex scent and comes in the most adorable tin. So, that pretty much makes it the perfect gift for teachers, bosses or Uncle Eddie (who probably needs to shower before the next family gathering...just sayin’).

This may seem like a strange gift, but if you’re an avid soccer mom like myself, this little bottle has been a life-saver. Field Botanical’s Smell My Feet is an ideal gift for sports moms, coaches or a white elephant gift at work! Oh, and they also sell Smell My Pits and Smell My Bod, all under $30 a piece, so they basically have your holiday stink covered on every front!

I can’t get enough of Primally Pure’s ever-popular deodorant. Blue Tansey and Charcoal are my all-time faves. At a price point of only $16, they’re perfect for book club buds, or anyone in your life looking to improve their wellness game for 2020. (Side note: I spent over a year looking for a natural deodorant that actually works, and this is definitely it. So, thankfully I can now workout at my Crossfit gym without wondering if that horribly smelling person is me...)

Cliff Original Beard Balm Slider ($9.99) + Charcoal Face Wash ($15.99)

This one’s for all the men in your life. If you’re on the lookout for an amazing gift they’ll actually love, then look no further than Cliff Original. These small-batch grooming and styling products are made with real ingredients, which makes them a BIG winner in my book. My husband loves the Charcoal Face Wash and Beard Balm, which you can purchase for under $30! This is the perfect stocking stuffer for Dad or that special guy in your life. Oh, and if you’re looking to support a family-owned business with the most genuinely kind founder, then Cliff Original should be your go-to!

Hey, moms! This one’s for you. Wiley Body just came out with a new addition to their baby line, and I’m beyond excited about it. This all-in-one, non-greasy body oil is perfect for post-bath hydration to lock in moisture, leaving your baby’s skin feeling super soft and hydrated. Or, try adding a bit to your bath water for a super hydrating soak! Pair this with a three-pack of Honest Hazel Eye Gels, and you’ll be all set this holiday season!

This beautiful dry brush is a great gift that offers so much benefit. Dry brushing helps to exfoliate the skin, increase circulation and detoxify the body. It also helps to invigorate and energize (hint, hint: do this prior to any holiday shopping outing!). This is the perfect gift for Mom, grandma or your mother-in-law.

Who wouldn’t love the gift of sun protection? This is a 100% mineral based translucent powder, perfect for daily use and on the go. It’s a great gift idea for your hairdresser, co-worker or babysitter. Remember, sun protection isn’t just a summertime trend! Especially if you’re planning on hitting the slopes this winter season...

Formulated with a unique blend of nourishing oils, these lip jellies are more than just color and shine—they’re perfect for even the most sensitive skin types! This hypoallergenic lip gloss is just begging to be your daughter’s next stocking stuffer. But if you want to go above and beyond, purchase one for that gal pal gift exchange or the piano teacher!

We all have that one friend who’s super hard to shop for (you know, the one who has great taste and already has everything?). Well, look no further than my Staples Sample Trio. It lets your picky-as-can-be friend try all three of my results-driven, plant-based skin serums. Even better, they make the perfect travel companions, and you can feel confident you are gifting quality, clean serums that are ideal for even the most sensitive skin types. Regularly priced at $29, you can grab this awesome trio for only $19 now through Christmas when you use code HOLIDAYCHEER at checkout. Gift it to your gal pals, sisters or even yourself (come on, you deserve it!).
