Planet-Friendly Gifting for Every Holiday Budget
We know the most sustainable gift options aren’t always kind on your budget. But this year, we’re leaving that notion behind. With our limited-edition holiday 2020 collection, you can feel good with planet-friendly gifting for every single budget — whether you’re looking for a small gift swap item for your coworker, or holiday gift sets under $50 for your close family members.
It’s about more than just the price range, though. With our holiday beauty gift sets, there are options for every personality and clean beauty preference, from iconic complexion favorites, to bright pops of color, to 100% vegan skincare (that’s 100% ready for any holiday road tripping needs). We’re breaking down a few of our favorite holiday gift ideas, by price range, with details on how you can give good AND do good this season. Not to mention, our holiday treats all ready-to-gift, so you won’t have to factor in any wasteful (and unnecessarily expensive) wrapping paper into your gifting budget. Keep on reading — this is the only holiday gift guide you’ll need this year.
Holiday Gifts Under $25
Superfruit Mask Duo
Self-care during the holiday season is always a must. After navigating crazy online sales and checking shopping lists twice, a moment of zen is just what’s needed. This limited-edition set features two vegan formulas with superfruit extracts: a Cranberry Exfoliating Mask and a Blueberry Nourishing Mask. Plus, you can always go half-sies and keep one for yourself. Oh, and did we mention the box has zero plastic, for easy recycling?
Full-Size GEN NUDE Patent Lip Lacquer
Small but mighty, this lip lacquer is an essential for small gifting occasions: think gift swap, stocking stuffer, present topper — you name it. It’s even adorned with ready-to-gift packaging made from FSC-certified paper and a ribbon, so you can just hang it from the fireplace with care. The covetable lipstick-gloss hybrid comes in a universally flattering cinnamon pink shade that’s the perfect touch for any holiday look.
MINERAL VEIL Finishing Powder Duo Full-Size and Free Mini
Okay, so we know this pick is right at the top of your $25 budget, but can you blame us? Not only does this kit include our best-selling setting powder, but it also has a mini one to use on the go. It’s the perfect set for your friend or family member who’s constantly doing their makeup in the car or any fan of a polished, flawless finish. And the limited-edition decorative caps are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic.

Good Tidings GEN NUDE Eyeshadow Palette
This time of the year, color is all around. Exclusively ours, this limited-edition GEN NUDE palette features whimsical shades for any look: from a soft wash of shimmer to a dramatic, jewel-toned smoky eye. When it’s all used up, you can simply remove the mirror and tray and recycle the innovative paperboard palette.
ORIGINAL Loose Mineral Foundation SPF 15 Deluxe Collector’s Edition
There’s a good reason we bring this gift back year after year: it’s loved by everyone. There’s nothing more iconic than our ORIGINAL Foundation — and this year it’s all dressed up in a festive deluxe jar made with post-consumer recycled plastic. Good for your skin, good for the planet — we won’t tell anyone if you get one for yourself, too.
Mini SKINLONGEVITY Long Life Herb Trio
The perfect skincare set doesn’t exist — actually, wait, yes it does. It’s this trio of travel-size favorites. The 100% vegan formulas strengthen your skin barrier with the help of boosted Long Life Herb, a unique superfood that is responsibly sourced from Okinawa, Japan. And, it’s suitable for all ages and skin types, so it’s truly a perfect pick for anyone on your list.

MINERALIST Lipstick Vault
If you’re going to splurge, you might as well really splurge. This gift is perfect for the die-hard lipstick lover. Featuring 15 full-size vegan lipsticks, they can truly create endless clean beauty looks — no matter if they’re feeling like something dark and moody (may we suggest the shade Perception) or they’re in the mood for a classic neutral (like the shade Memory). And in a box with custom, nature-inspired motifs from Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Bachman, this one’s definitely covetable and ready-to-gift just as it is.
GIVE YOUR FAVORITES Customizable Clean Makeup Set
Not finding the perfect holiday makeup kit for your loved one? Why not customize one for them. You get to choose 3 full-size items, including a clean, vegan foundation and 2 face, lip or eye products. Plus, they’re all packaged in a bag made from recycled plastic bottles. What’s not to love?
