With Christmas next Monday, we’re down to the last week to pick up gifts! If you’re in need of some last-minute ideas for the beauty, fashion, food or coffee lover in your life, here are a few of my top picks…
For the Beauty Lover
Makeup can be a tough one to gift, especially since we all have different preferences when it comes to shades, formulas, and finishes. But glowing skin? Now that’s something on everybody’s wishlist! To boost radiance (and indulge in pamper-worthy scents and formulas), Fresh’s luxurious skincare line is a sure stand-out. For starters, I’d highly recommend the Fresh Holiday Glow Skincare Set. Inside, you’ll find their best-selling Soy Face Cleanser, a jar of their scrumptious Sugar Face Polish (which smells and feels amazing!), and the subtly shimmery FreshFace Instant Glow Luminizer (a personal favorite of mine!). It’s the perfect gift for any age, and any skin type.
And for the ultimate lip treatment, Fresh Sugar Lip Prep ‘n’ Paint is the kit to get. It comes with everything you need to get smooth, healthy-looking lips, all winter long. Inside you’ll find their Sugar Lip Polish to exfoliate, and two Advanced Therapy formulas to deeply nourish and treat dry lips. For a touch of color on top of hydration, they’ve also included the Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 and Sugar Cream Lip Treatment in Buff.

For the Fashionista
Clothing can be another difficult gift to give since everyone has their own unique style, but there is one piece that most all of us can appreciate, especially in the winter, and that’s a nice cozy sweater. Chunky oversized knit sweaters in particular are a wardrobe essential this season, and they look especially chic paired with ankle boots and straight leg jeans!
For the Foodies
From the master chef to the cooking newbie, nothing beats adding some new and exotic spice blends to their kitchen. That’s where RawSpiceBar comes in. Through their Quarterly Spice Kit, they’ll send your special someone 6 freshly ground spices & blends (1 oz in size) each quarter. According to their website, that’s enough for them to cook 2 seasonally-inspired meals per week for 4 people! You can choose between a 6-month ($52) or 12-month ($88) subscription. After placing your order, they’ll email you a gift certificate that you can send directly to your giftee or print out (and possibly pair alongside any cooking essentials that they may be missing!).
If you have someone in your life who enjoys snacking – maybe a college student or working professional – Vegan Cuts Snack Box makes the perfect monthly treat (I know I loved getting these types of deliveries at work!). Inside, there’s an assortment of healthy (and super tasty) chips, cookies, teas, and more. You can choose to gift 1, 3, 6, or 12 months of deliveries. After placing your order, Vegan Cuts will send you a fancy digital gift card that you can either print or email. (Check out one of my past unboxings here to see an example!)
For the Coffee Lovers
And of course I can’t leave out the coffee enthusiasts (being one myself)! One gift idea that I’ve personally tried out and very much enjoy is Driftaway Coffee’s subscription service. Their packages include a unique selection of specialty coffees, sourced from all over the world. Simply choose the size of each delivery, frequency (monthly or every 2 weeks), and subscription length (3, 6, or 12 months). You can also choose to get just the first delivery shipped to you so that you can gift it in person, have them all sent directly to your giftee, or print/send an e-gift card. If you’re gifting the gift card or very first package in person, pair it with a coffee mug for an even more personalized gift!
