With just two weekends left to gift *good* on time, (Dec. 16 is the S/G deadline!) our Founder, Leah, shares what’s on her gift list for her closest friends + fam. From her absolute favorite facial oil RN, to the quick and snappy last-minute grabs, we hope this helps to inspire fabulous self-care gifting for both you and yours as we approach the holiday shopping finish line!
1 KYPRIS ‘Beauty Elixir I: 1,000 Roses‘ Ever since our launch of the Kypris line, I have found a daily affinity for this rich oil which targets dry or UV-exposed skin. The bio-identical CoQ10 and Bulgarian rose essential oil feel sooo lux and my skin literally drinks it up morning and night. If you’re wanting to gift a wow-factor, luxurious skincare product for someone who loves results…this is it.
2 SHOP GOOD ‘Hat – Beige‘ Sun or no sun, hats on! Even in wintertime, the sun’s rays can counter all that good lovin’ you gift your skin. This new line of S/G hats is personally my favorite ever, and it’s the perfect gift for your clean beauty bestie to wear year round!
3 SHOP GOOD ‘At Home Facial Package‘ Gift a facial – at home. Our Holistic Estheticians custom blend and build every facial package fresh at the time it’s ordered, all personalized based on the inputs you provide. It’s the closest thing to seeing our esthetician team at the spa.
4 SHOP GOOD Holiday Kits: ‘Good Mood‘ / ‘Good Skin‘ / ‘Good Glow‘ In classic S/G style, we’ve done the work for you and created these ready-to-gift kits featuring a mix of our absolute faves across skincare (Good Skin Kit), makeup (Good Glow Kit) and wellness (Good Mood Kit)! I love them for the grab-and-go gift when you’re in a pinch; they’re all packed up in our Shop Good carryall, including a card insert with directions and a cute little holiday tag. Bundled at $60 and featuring brands like Ilia, Kypris, Sun Potion and more, you may be grabbing more than one, speeding up your gift shopping and leaving more time for Y-O-U!
5 SHOP GOOD ‘The Good Life Candle‘My team and I spent months working with this dream team: Gina (a truly multi-talented being – she’s founder of former SG brand, Veyali, our web designer and an incredibly skilled nose) and Sarah, candle connoisseur and founder of Often Wander – to custom create our line of Shop Good candles. When I say I have never come across Essential Oil candles as strong and addicting as these on the market, I kid you not. It’s the gift of ‘cozy’ without any synthetic fragrance. Psst – Did you know ‘The Good Life’ candle was custom crafted to smell like the inside of our shops?!
6 BODHA ‘Tenderness Incense‘ Brand new to our shop shelves – and something that your skincare or wellness-obsessed friend may not yet own! Our buying team hand selected Bodha’s exclusive scent crafted with rose, geranium + shiso leaf, for its decadent yet soothing aroma. I love the story behind it – Tenderness was crafted in collaboration with a 5th generation woman-run incense house on Japan’s incense island. Pair it with their minimalist brass sphere holder for the complete aesthetic.
7 HATCH MAMA ‘Belly Oil‘ + ‘Nourish Lotion‘ Lots of new mamas in my circle of friends this year and I’m gifting them gorgeous items from our newest line, Hatch Mama. During my own pregnancy, I found that layering an ultra-rich and hydrating cream underneath a super soothing belly oil, kept my growing belly’s skin soft, supple and healthy. And, I mean, what new mama wouldn’t want these gorgeous bottles on their bedside table?!
8 WONDER VALLEY ‘Hinoki Bar‘ W-O-W with this gorgeous and thoughtful stocking stuffer that transports your loved ones to a Japanese forest. The bar works into a thick lather for the ultimate bathing experience and immediately soothes my dry winter skin. I can’t get over the packaging with artwork by Logan Maxwell Hagege. Wonder Valley does it again.
9 MOON JUICE ‘Ting‘ The holiday grind cues my mid-afternoon slumps. To bring me a lift and a noticeable reset, I’m grabbing this powder formula by Moon Juice. Packed with a B Complex (from organic Tulsi and Guava), and methylated B12 to encourage optimal serotonin levels. It’s sweetened with organic monk fruit, which helps to avoid a too-sweet or biting flavor like other powdered beverages.
10 THE NUE CO. ‘Forest Lungs‘ Upon first whiff I knew this would be a gifting hit and it has not left the prime real estate on my bedside table. It’s a unisex fragrance that also serves as an anti-stress aromatherapy tool due to its woodsy, tart and grounding aromatic blend. A thoughtful and functional gift for literally everyone on your list utilizing the healing power of nature!
11 MOUNT LAI ‘Jade Eye Mask‘ A show-stopping gift for any wellness warrior. This mask is made with pure Jade, known as the stone of eternal youth. Sign us up for a soothing, cooling and de-puffing eye treatment while manifesting all the *good* in 2022.
12 GOOP ‘GoopGenes All in One Nourishing Skincare Kit‘ Hydration station. This savvy trio of Goop’s best-sellers is such an easy way to gift someone special a taste of powerful + luxurious skincare. I love this skincare set for when I’m on the go and can’t carry my full-size bottles with me while traveling. With a nourishing eye cream, hydrating face cream and glow-inducing face oil this set feels like a skin treat you’ll want to savor, down to the very last drop.
13 ACT + ACRE ‘Scalp Gua Sha‘ Everyone needs one of these. Because, what’s better than a scalp massage? Gift unique, luxury self care with this hand-cut jade comb from Act + Acre. Other than feeling insanely amazing, using this scalp tool regularly can also help to stimulate the hair follicles for increased blood flow and hair growth.
14 SUN POTION ‘Yin Power‘ Of all my Shop Good purchases over the years, this has been the most life changing, so naturally, I had to include. Yin has helped completely regulate my periods and I believe it also helped prep my body for pregnancy. Just a little in my coffee each AM has been an effortless ritual over the years, providing supercharged, hormone-loving benefits from adaptogens ashwagandha, reishi, He Shou Wu and pearl. This is the perfect gift for someone looking to supercharge their wellness routine in 2022 and make things happen!
