Gift Yourself This Season With Influencer-Approved Essentials

In the spirit of giving this season? Of course you are. TBH, what’s more fun than shopping around and picking out a brand new planner for your super organized BFF or a beautifully sentimental picture frame for your mom?

But let’s be real: it’s never a bad idea to give yourself a little something special as well. There’s truly no better time than the holidays to give yourself some well-deserved gifts than the holiday season.

That’s why we’ve picked out our top products to spoil yourself with this season, all specially selected from this year’s InfluenceHer Holiday Essentials Kit. Here are our top picks to treat yourself to this season:

A creamy matte lip look

You’ll want to have a statement-making lipstick from the Almay Lip Vibes Collection on hand at all times during the holidays. Our fave shades are Dance Now, a bold and bright pink shade, and Girl Boss, a softer pink shade with a little sheen. These are total essential for adding that extra ~something~ for any holiday party or hometown reunion with your BFFs.

A minty snack

The holiday-inspired LUNA Bars will become your new snack obsession during the winter months. The Chocolate Peppermint Stick and Mint Chocolate Chip LUNA Bars are bursting with rich chocolate and real mint and peppermint candy that you’ll want to savor. And best of all, these bars will give you all the energy to keep you going during those long days of holiday shopping.

A tropical vibe during the winter

Feel like you’re on a summer getaway with Alba Botanica’s line of Hawaiian skincare, including a must-have Hawaiian detox face scrub, tropical lip balm trio, and line of botanically-based cleansers and moisturizers. Not only is Alba Botanica good for the body, but it’s good for the Earth with their biodegradable formulas and packaging.

An upgrade for your toiletries
