Slide to see our fave picks:
- Amika Un.Done Texture Spray: This texture spray delivers tons of volume while leaving a matte finish. Love that beachy, touchable wavy hair look? Try this. Needing some texture but hate the crunch from typical texture sprays? Use this! The full OR travel-friendly size would be perfect for a favorite things party gift. Plus, it smells clean and fresh too!
- IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment: This lip treatment is going to blow your mind! It has this magical quality that transforms into your perfect shade of pink when applied, giving you a natural flush customized with your skin tone. Our whole team tried it and it showed up beautifully BUT differently on each person! We tried it in Honey, but reviewers rave about the Perfect Pink shade too. It's very hydrating and feels like you’re wearing chapstick, but looks like the prettiest lipstick!
- Socks: These flirty flutter socks instantly dress up a cute winter outfit! They are just as fun to show off as they are comfortable to wear. This pack comes with 6 beautiful neural colors to match sooo many different outfits. Soft, comfy and breathable!
- Rare Beauty Blush: Beautifully pigmented, a little goes a long way with this blush that blends seamlessly! We first fell in love with this blush last fall and ever since it’s been an absolute FAVE. We especially love it in the color “Happy”, but there’s lots of other really pretty colors to choose from.
- Box Slicer: This may seem like a boring gift, until you purchase it for yourself and realize you use it alllll of the time! A practical gift that will instantly become a lifesaver with opening all of those holiday packages this season. It has a ceramic blade that stays sharp up to 11 times longer than steel and a 3-position manual slider button for optimal control! Plus, a locking blade for safety.
- Essie Gel Couture Polish and Top Coat: This nail polish duo is all you need for an amazing, at-home manicure! The shade “Wearing Hue?” is a universal charmer, perfect for any skin tone and occasion, while the top coat seals the deal with beautiful shine and durability, no UV lamp needed. Seriously, some Team Mint Arrow girls say your nails will look just like gel using this combo. You're besties will quickly love these too!
- Mini Volcano Candle: This well-loved candle makes your whole home smelly heavenly! The scent is a mix of tropical fruits and sugared citrus, YUM. This little tin size makes it an easy item to gift. It truly never disappoints!
- Free People lookalike quilted tote bag: We are alllll about FP and FP lookalikes here, and we were soooo excited to find this tote bag! It is super spacious and the quilted padding is so cozy. This bag is so versatile, making it perfect for the gym, office, weekend getaway – you name it. Watch it become the winter wardrobe staple your everyone didn't know they needed!
- Lash Paradise Mascara: A mascara that delivers crazy good volume. This is our very favorite drugstore mascara, and a total dupe for Too Faced mascara. Apparently Beyonce's makeup artist is obsessed with it too so…#goodcompany? No flaking, smudging, or clumping, just feathery soft, full lashes all day long. This mascara is 10/10!
- Ice Roller: This nifty little gadget soothes away puffiness, fine lines, and any signs of seasonal stress from your skin. Wrap this up for your favorite things holiday party and watch as your besties ooh and aah over it —because who doesn't want to start the new year looking and feeling their absolute best?
