The best holiday gift guide for finding perfect gifts for your mom, BFF, coworker and more! We’ve also included 4 Pinterest-worthy gift wrap how-tos and a price tiered gift guide with over 20 gifts!
There will always be those same culprits who answer “nothing” when urged to reveal what gifts they’d like to receive for the holidays. Time to make an executive decision for these overly-low maintenance gift recipients: get them something you know they’ll use, something that will improve their lives, and something that shows you care. Gifting natural skin, hair, and body care is always a safe bet -- rather than gifting ‘junk food’ for skin and body, gifting organic and natural is like loading up a gift basket with goodies from your local farmers market. Now that’s some classy gift-giving!
We’ve got the lowdown on holiday gift giving, and it’s all here to make your holiday season a breeze! Read on for a gift guide for every budget, our top picks for the top names on your list, and 4 totally Pinterest-worthy, easy as pie gift wrapping tutorials that will leave your friends and family speechless.

Best Gifts for Your Favorites
As you can see, we’re featuring some all-star gift sets this holiday season. Check out our fave picks for a few of the biggest names on your gift list!
For mom, we’re loving anything that says “I love you… now pamper yourself for once!” For that special lady in our lives, we’re obsessed with gifting hydrogel sheet masks that can transport her straight to the spa, and will have her snapping and sending selfies to you all day long. These cooling, gel textured masks are made with organic aloe juice, and will deeply soothe and hydrate mom’s skin.
Sorry Dad, but sometimes you’re definitely the hardest to shop for. If your dad is a low maintenance dude, chances are he doesn’t have much of a skin, body, or hair care regimen. Get Dad’s feet wet with an online gift card and show him the ropes by picking a routine that works just for him. Another option is to make his routine easy peasy with a skin soothing body care set that he can suds up with and use to keep working hands and skin healthy.
Shopping for your bestie is the next best thing to shopping for yourself; you get to shop for the stuff you want, without the guilt of spending money on yourself when you’re on a holiday budget. Snag a neutral makeup palette that’s versatile enough to fit any skin tone, a sultry lipstick duo with both a glossy and matte option, and perhaps a long-lasting, Ultra Lengthening Mascara in your bestie’s signature shade for good measure.
You’re on the grind together, sharing in your goals, victories, and failures (along with a few laughs). Reward your fave coworkers with a gift that means something to someone who works hard for a living: we’re thinking spa-worthy or desk-friendly is the best way to go. To help them unwind after an especially tense holiday season, gift them with detoxifying and soothing bath soaks, made with crystallized kelp from the Brittany Coast of France. For their desk, hit them with a cute and useful duo of Hand Buttercream and Lip Butter.
If Granny is into her skin, we’ve got just the thing. Set her up with a luxury skin care set that will gently cleanse her skin with soft butters and oils, a serum that will boost elasticity and gently brighten her complexion, and a superhero PM face cream that works wonders on signs of aging and smells divine. Another safe bet from Grandma? Load her up with a skin safe, toxin-free body care set that she’ll love sharing when her kids and grandkids come to visit.
GIFTING PRO TIP: Overthinking a gift? Want to gift your BFF with a foundation she’ll love, but not sure what shade she wears? We’re so so happy to introduce our 100% PURE online gift card! Get gifting with a gift of $10, $25, $50, $100, $150, $200, or $250 that will unlock all of their beauty and skin care dreams.
Pinterest-Worthy Gift Wrap Guide: Furoshiki Fabric Wrapping
This year, we’re taking our holiday gift wrap inspiration straight from Japan! You can ditch the tape, the messy rolls of wrapping paper, and won’t have to worry about running out of paper on that last fold -- this gift wrap method utilizes only a single piece of fabric per gift! You can purchase pieces of Furoshiki wrapping fabric online, but we prefer to use gently used scarves, brand new giftable scarves, or upcycled fabrics. While these may look complicated at first glance, we promise they’re much easier to tackle than origami, and they’ll stun the gift recipient with their beauty and chic simplicity.
We’ve learned our chic techniques from the sustainability and empowerment blog at 1 Million Women, an inspiring organization of women committed to bettering our planet’s future. We’ve used their helpful guide for this sustainable gift wrap method, and have tested out the gorgeous results on some of our favorite gift ideas for moms, grandmas, friends, and coworkers. Check out our super simple tutorials below!
Gift for Mom: Caffeine Mask 5pk + Bright Eyes 5pk
Furoshiki wrap method: Sao Tsutsumi
Use this gift wrap method for flat gifts; these types of gifts can sometimes fall, well, flat when it comes to gift wrapping (think sad calendar wrapped in plain old paper). We stacked a little Bright Eyes 5pk on top of a Caffeine Mask 5pk, but you can also use this super simple gift wrap tactic for any square, rectangular, triangular, or circular gift as long as they’re semi-flat.
Gift for Granny: 3 Butter Soaps
Furoshiki wrap method: Otsukai Tsutsumi
Use this gift wrap method for small to medium square gifts. We stacked 3 Butter Soap bars together, but you can also use this super simple gift wrap tactic for any square our stoutly rectangle gift like jewelry, watch, or wallet boxes.
Gift for BFF: PN2 + Ultra Lengthening Mascara + Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick + Bamboo Blur
Furoshiki wrap method: Entou Tsutsumi
This gift wrap method comes in clutch when you’re wrapping a bundle of oddly shaped gifts! We built a customized care package for our bestie that includes a rectangular makeup palette, a long cylindrical mascara, a short cylindrical lipstick, and a round and flat Bamboo Blur Powder. Despite all of these fruit pigmented® cosmetics being completely different sizes, the end result is a neat little package wrapped with care and beautiful to behold.
Gift for Coworker: Bath Salt Duo
Furoshiki wrap method: Bin Tsutsumi 2
Use this gift wrap method for a duo of taller, more cylindrical items that you want to stay together. Think wine or beer bottles, candles, or bath salts-- we chose two glass jars of fine bath salts made from crystallized kelp!
This holiday season, we’ve got your back. We hope you’ve enjoyed our customized holiday gift guide, and have learned some stunning gift wrap ideas that you can use for any occasion. Check back on our blog for more useful guides and helpful skin care hints!
