Holiday shopping on your mind? We’re here to help! We rounded up our fave $50 and under picks from some of our friends — you’re bound to find something for everybody on your list:
No offense to chapstick but IMO, there’s no reason to sacrifice *fierce* lip color for moisture. That’s why Winky Lux’s Ruby Glimmer and Rose Glimmer Balm Ornaments are at the top of our list. These best-selling, vegan balms apply clear and respond to your skin’s pH-levels to create the perfect shade of pink. (For even more moisture, we recommend their new Snowflake Lip Oil Ornament, too — it’s loaded with avocado, sunflower, olive, and jojoba oils.)
Who wouldn’t want an excuse to abandon those years-old half-empty bottles of $3 drugstore nail polish? Check out Sundays’s Wellness Gift Box to customize 3 bottles of polish in your BFF’s fave colors — their vibrant polishes feature an opaque gloss finish, are long-lasting & chip resistant, and yup, non-toxic! They also hooked us up with 15% off using code SUNDAYSTHINX, valid from now until Dec 31.
New year, new bras — that’s definitely not an actual saying, but it should be. For all-day comfort and support (even and especially for our bigger-chested buds), Lively can’t be beat. The new moms in your life will be obsessed with the Mesh Trim Maternity Bralette, promise! (Comfy? Check. Supportive? Check. Easy breastfeeding? Check check check.)
Well, it is 2020 — and it looks like our new fave accessory is here to stay a li’l longer. But we’re totally over maskne, so help your buds out with a set of organic face masks by MATE. They’re made using 100% organic cotton that are so soft & breathable, they’ll forget they’re wearing one. Each pack includes five reusable non-medical grade masks in an array of chic colors.
For your buds that got in touch with their craftier side during all that stay-at-home time, we recommend the beginner-friendly Avanto Beanie Knitting Kit by We Are Knitters. It includes everything you need to make a cozy, slouchy beanie.
Our new fave workout class is SaltDrop: a beat-driven, mat-based celebration of movement. Taught by master instructors (including our bada$$ VP of PR, CJ, so it’s def a go-to for Team Thinx!), SaltDrop features challenging fitness classes that are accessible to all levels right from your living room.
Your period proud pals will love Olly’s ~empowering collection of self-care solutions for women~. These vitamins and supplements tackle hormone balance during your cycle, dreaded *bloat*, libido boosting ;), and supporting urinary tract health.
For the BFFs you can talk to about *everything*, set them up with an upgrade for their self-care *down there*. Our picks are Honey Pot’s Sensitive System, which includes Honey Pot’s Sensitive System (includes their Sensitive Wash, Sensitive Wipes, Lavender Spray, and Duo tampons), or a Starter Pack from Fohm which reduces waste by turning regular toilet paper into wet wipes using a natural, scent-free cleanser. And you know we’re gifting every person with a period we know with one of our Sparkle & Scotch gift boxes, featuring our newest holiday hues.
