The biggest shopping day of the year is upon us! While getting pushed and shoved for a great deal is a thrill for some, I’d rather stay in my jammies and sip hot cocoa all day the day after Thanksgiving. So I thought I’d put together a gift guide for the hair and beauty lover on your list (even if that person is you!). The best part? You can make your list and check it twice from the comfort of your couch.
1. Snappee Hair Ties
Perfect for the girl who has thick or unruly hair, Snappee hair ties – you guessed it – can be snapped and unsnapped in to place, saving you from knots and chunks of missing hair. If I had a dollar for each time I either had to cut a hair tie out of my hair, or removed a hair tie along with enough hair to make a wig, I’d be a rich lady. Another great feature? These hair ties aren’t made from elastic, so they don’t stretch out permanently. Just put them in the wash, and the return to their original condition. How awesome is that? They are currently offering 10% off your first order on their website!
2. Holster Brands Hot Iron Holster
How many times have you accidentally melted your brush or left a scorched spot on your bathroom counter top with your flat iron? Knocked your curling wand on the floor because you don’t have enough counter space? If you’re hot tool accident prone like me, the Hot Iron Holster from Holster Brands, will change your life. Simply place the silicone holster on your counter (or even over the edge of a pedestal sink) and stick your hot tools in. No more melting things, no more knocking your hot tools off the counter or sink. I have one in my bathroom, and I absolutely love it! The Hot Iron Holster is available in several different colors.
3. Birchbox Subscription
If you aren’t familiar with Birchbox, it’s a monthly subscription service that allows you to try hair, beauty and skincare items for $10 a month. You fill out a profile to customize your box to your preferences, and Birchbox sends 4-5 samples tailored for you! The best part? You review your samples for points that are redeemable for free product from the Birchbox shop! You can choose between a 3, 6, and 12 month option. Click here to gift, or sign up for yourself!
4. Ingredient Conscious Skincare Kit
If you have a sensitive skin beauty on your list, then look no further. This curated set from Birchbox offers 5 skincare products that are parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and petrochemicals free. You’ll be able to exfoliate and moisturize without turning your face red, or breaking out.
5. Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette
The Naked line by Urban Decay is seriously one of my favorites. I have each of the palettes, and wear them pretty much on a day to day basis. I often get asked what my favorite is, or what the best one to start with is. While I think that depends on personal preference, you can’t go wrong with the Naked Ultimate Basics. This palette offers a selection of Urban Decay’s most popular matte shades, and are easy to apply for beginners and experts alike. I love that it comes with a large mirror and a dual ended eye shadow brush, and is paraben free. Check it out at Sephora.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday spent with family and friends!
