“This is my grown-up Christmas list”
The holidays are just around the corner and its time to get the last few names checked off the very long list of gifts. The holidays are about more than gifts but somehow year after year we find ourselves agonizing of what would make the perfect gift for our precious loved ones.
So without further adieu, I will share with you some of my top picks for under the tree ( or menorah )this holiday season. My 2017 Holiday Gift Guide!
Gifts For her :
Gifts for the fitness junkie:
The Splurge :
I have tried to give you all a wide range of price points for My Gift Guide to fit any budget. Also, any cosmetics are to the best of my knowledge, cruelty-free. As well as all leather will be vegan because personally I am vegan and I don’t support cruel practices. The below products are some of my favs that would be a great addition to the stocking stuffers lists. Stocking we’re always my favorite part so I gave them some special attention.
Stocking Stuffer Ideas:
Nail Polish from Essie:
Essie has come out with a great holiday and gala collection. They have both the normal polishes we all know and love plus the Gel couture collections that give you the benefits of a chip-free gel polish in the comfort of your own home and the best part … No lamps needed!
I love both formulas and I have loved Essie polishes ever since I can remember ! they make great stocking stuffers and some of my favorite shades from the collections is Be Cherry and Ring in the bling from their original formula and Holiday collection Gel Couture Sizzling hot and Gel Couture Gala; front page worthy
Oh so Organic 24 hour Liquid Bronzer:
This is a great long lasting bronzer to give us all a little glow. The liquid bronzer is long lasting, great buildable coverage and is by the only brand I trust for my spray tans Tan On The Run.
You can buy the tan alone for $30 CDN or with the Kabuki brush for $45. All products and brushes are Vegan and Cruelty-Free.
Green Beaver Sensitive Aloe Exfoliant($16.99) & Sensitive Aloe Day Cream ($20)
Green beaver have some amazing reasonably priced facial care. Their products are really great for most skin types and they are Vegan and Cruelty-Free. This Canadian Brand would be a great addition to anyone’s stocking. Products are available on their website and also whole foods.
Marc Anthony has some of my favorite Cruelty-Free hair products. From Their shampoos to styling products you are sure to find some great additions to your family stockings. The best part is they have a wide range of travel sized products that make them a perfect fit. Marc Anthony haircare also has great prices and can be found at Walmart and a wide variety of drugstores.
I have recently tried these little fragrances and I really love them. They are only $4.99 and make everything smell good. These fragrances are light and last for hours. My Personal favorites are White Petals: a very floral scent and Vannila Milkshake: which smells exactly as you would imagine it too.
Makeup Sponges and Brushes:
For the beauty lovers on your list, I think cosmetic brushes and sponges make great add-ons for stocking stuffers. While I know beauty blenders can be expensive I Personally love the mini Miracle sponges by Real Techniques, Brushes by Eco-Tools, Mary Kay blending sponge, and some of my top fav vegan brushes are by Royal and Langnickel.These all have options to fit any budget.
For those on your list who don’t like liquid bronzers these will for sure be a hit. These pressed bronzing minerals actually give you a lasting tan long after you have washed it off. They are available in 2 shades and run you $45 but well worth it.
This hand cream is the only cream I have ever loved. Not only does it smell amazing but its nongreasy and makes your hands beyond soft. Pick this up for all the ladies on your list,Ii promise you won’t regret it!
These little roll-ons have a variety of different scents and are one of my fav vegan perfumes. Pacifica makes great products and these are reasonably priced and are great for women on the goas they fit easily into any handbag. They also have a range of fragrances to match any age group you are looking for. My personal favorites are Mediterranean Fig and Indian Coconut Nectar. They also have gift sets shown in my For her Gifts.
I have only recently picked up this oil but I am soo in love. This illuminating oil is a great addition to your winter skincare line and makes a great gift for any of the ladies on your list. DERMA E is fully Vegan, Cruelty-free, and GMO-Free. I pick up my Derma e products from whole foods and they have so many other great products to choose from.

Petit Vour Is a vegan and cruelty-free online shop but they also have a great subscription box that would make a great gift for any beauty/makeup enthusiasts on your list. The subscription boxes come in 3,6 and 12-month packages which is great if you are on a budget. The boxes are really great and each box is worth between $45-$60 and it’s a great way to try new things to find what works best for you.
