It’s time to queue up Michael Buble’s ‘Winter Wonderland’ (and light this candle for ambiance) because the holiday season is officially upon us. Here at Shop Good, we believe there is no better present than reminding your loved ones that incorporating clean beauty and wellness doesn’t have to be hard! Nourishing self-care and dewy skin comes in all shapes, sizes, and swoon-worthy gifts too.
Between swiping on your favorite burgundy lipstick and running to (yet) another holiday party, living up to your thoughtful gifting ambitions can go from fun to stress — trust us, we’ve been there. We want to gift you easy shopping this season with a curated guide for everyone in your life. From your mom to your work wife – we’ve sorted through the BEST IN CLEAN to keep things easy breezy for you. Ready?
Here’s how we broke it down: For Your Sis / For Your BFF / For Your Mom / For the New Momma / For Your Work Wife / For Your Man / Gifts Under $20 / Kits (Grab and Go Gifts!) / For Anyone on Your List / Favorite Local Gifts Around San Diego
