The 2019 holiday gift guide:4 gift box ideas for your skincare loving friend

The end of the year and the perfect time to share a well-curated gift box. Considering most people are running helter-skelter I thought christmas is a time for giving and decided to be nice and save you the trouble of having to look for a gift yourself.

Here are some gift boxes I have seen online from companies I trust which I would love to find under the Christmas tree.

Because this is a skincare and beauty blog as you can expect most of the items I will pick are leaning in that direction, however, if I notice something that is too good to leave out you can be sure it will end up on my list.

So let’s get started.


Although the brand is not very active on Instagram, they have a fully functional and beautiful website where you can order their products. However, one thing they are good at doing is curating a gift box every year that is irresistible and this year is no different. In time for the holidays, they have come up with a Phoenix line which for the yuletide period comes in a gift box.
