A Very Green Gift Guide

Happy holidays, folks! The season of giving is officially upon us, and with it comes and onslaught of gift guides from just about every blogger out there. Personally, I not only love reading gift guides but adore making them, so I figured I'd throw a few of my own into the ring. Below you'll actually find five gift guides - one encompassing skincare, one for hair, makeup, fragrance, as well as one for health and wellness. So read on, and I hope you enjoy the guide!

For the Skincare Addict

1. May Lindstrom The Jasmine Garden: This hydrating, clarifying face mist screams of luxury. It's the product you might not need, but the beautiful formula makes for a great gift.
2. Kypris Beauty Elixir I - 1,000 Roses: Any skin type will adore this deeply hydrating facial oil - review here.
3. Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask: Let's face it, anything from Tata Harper would make a great gift, but this mask in particular is a great way to relax and allow yourself to pamper yourself at home - review here.
4. Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel: This shower gel smells unbelievable, and its only available this time of year! A must have, definitely on my own list - review here.
5. One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum: OLO is a brand that can do no wrong, but everything from the formula to the packaging of this body serum of their's is fantastic.
6. Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil: There are very few night oils I'd recommend more than this luxurious blue tansy + Retinol-infused formula - review here.
7. Herbivore Botanicals Mini Facial Oil Set: I absolutely adore all of Herbivore's oils, and their mini roller ball set makes for a particularly great way to try them all at once. Check out my review of two of the oils here.
8. Prtty Peaushun Body Lotion: If you have a loved one that loves glowing skin (or is going on a vacation soon) than this is a lotion they'd almost certainly enjoy - review here.
9. Osmia Organics Spa Mini Set: I can say from personal experience that I'm always up for receiving a gift that allows me to have a little spa experience from my own home, so this mini spa set from Osmia looks pretty awesome.
10. Aquarian Soul Bath Soak Vial in Coconut RoseAquarian Soul makes the best smelling formulas, so this little vial of Coconut Rose bath soak sounds absolutely delectable.

For the Makeup Maven

1. Artis Brush Elite Mirror 5 Brush Set: These brushes have changed my life for the better, and I can't imagine a tool my fellow makeup lovers would enjoy receiving more than these. Check out my full review of the set here.
2. Tata Haper Very Bronzing: I'm totally inept when it comes to contouring, but even I have been able to (somewhat) attempt it using this incredibly creamy formula.
3. Kari Gran Jolene Lip Whip: This limited edition color has become my new go-to. The flattering shade would look wonderful on anyone.
4. W3ll People Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara: A good natural mascara is hard to come by, and a great one is darn near impossible. This mascara is a cult-favorite for a reason - review here.
5. Treat Collection Polish in Blue Sky: Some of the best polishes I've ever used, with an unbelievably great array of shades. This blue is one of my particular favorites, but chances are you'll be able to find one that your friend/family member/loved one would like in their collection - review here.
6. Vapour Organic Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss: Some times you just need a good lip gloss, you know? This is a great, yummy formula - review here.
7. RMS Living Luminizer: The best highlighter on the market. Hands down. Review here.

Simply e-mail the brand for a personalized shade match, and let your loved one use the best foundation on the market. Review here.
9. Jane Iredale In the Blink of a Smokey Eye Set: Jane Iredale can do no wrong in my eyes, but this smokey eye set might be one of my favorites from the line. While I haven't tried it personally, you can see my thoughts on this wonderful brand here.
10. Kjaer Weis Essential Trio 3: Kjaer Weis' products are not only beautifully packaged, they're simply great formulas. This trio allows you to try out three products from the line at once, all packed within a beautiful red box. Read up my thoughts on Kjaer Weis here.
11. Alima Pure The Ultimate Pencil Set: Is it too late for me to add this to my own list? Seven natural eyeliner pencils in every shade you'll ever need. Mic drop.
12. Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask: Part skincare, part makeup. If you know someone with dry lips, I cannot recommend this hydrating mask enough. It can be worn alone or over makeup for the most moisturized lips of your life.
14. Sappho Organics Magnetic Compact: Store all your green beauty tins in this convenient little travel-friendly compact.
