DIY Holiday Gift Baskets

DIY Holiday Gift Baskets

Gift giving is our favorite part of the holidays. We think the best presents are those that combine a little bit of store bought with a homemade twist. One way to share the love like this--a gift basket!

The best homemade gift baskets are more than just material possessions—they include a little bit of experience, a splash of nostalgia, and loads of thoughtfulness that make your loved ones truly feel loved.

If you’re drawing a blank, here are 3 gift basket ideas to get you started:


Whether she’s your roommate or lives on the other side of the country, the holidays are the perfect time to remind your best friend that you’re thankful for her. Our Winter Nights gift set is the perfect gift to help her flawlessly transition from day to night, accompanied by a paraben-free, cruelty-free bold red lip.

Arrange the gift set in a bag or basket with some of her favorite odds and ends. Our picks include a framed picture, this seasons hottest nail polish colors, and the holiday issue of her favorite magazine.

Our mothers and mother-figures are often our most cherished relationships. For the woman who’s always always giving to others, there’s no better gift than one of enjoyment and relaxation.

We suggest a gentle nudge by gifting her with a bottle of wine, a bottle of her favorite perfume, and our Glow Time gift set to pull her look together. It’s everything she needs to start a relaxing beauty routine before a holiday party, and she’ll have you to thank.

Our coworkers don’t get enough love. They celebrate our wins and understand our losses, listening to all of our thoughts in between. They’re a huge part of our happiness, and that’s something to commend.

But no matter how much you two may share, it’s best to err on the side of caution in the work place. Stick to some succulents for her desk, a beautiful candle, small, simple jewelry, and a few nude lip basics to use all year round.
