2023 Gift Guide for Him & Her

While we love the holidays, holiday shopping can be stressful and time-consuming, putting a damper on the season we’re supposed to enjoy together. Whether you’re looking for cute stocking stuffers, gift basket fillers, or perfect presents, you can stop your search here with gift ideas for your significant other, kids, family, and friends.

Want to know the best part? From high-end handpicks to mid-range mentions and ultra-affordable options, you don’t need to blow your budget to check off your nice list.

For the ladies in your life, we put together some of our favorite makeup, nail, hair styling, and fragrance finds.

If none of these seem just right, opt for a self-care gift basket with at-home spa day essentials to help her relax and rejuvenate.

She can tighten and tone her skin with NuFACE’s MINI Facial Toning Device, or try a stone roller for calming and skin-soothing serenity, such as Revlon’s Oil-absorbing Volcanic Stone Roller. Then help her relax with a moisturizing sheet mask, such as TONYMOLY’s Wonder Aloe Chok Chok Mask Sheet.


For the glam gals, makeup is a must. Products like foundations and concealers may be difficult to pick as everyone has a formula and color they prefer, makeup like blushes, eyeshadows, and glosses are easy picks with a wide variety of fun colors, finishes, and even packaging.

Combine multiple makeup options together for a basket or bouquet, then tie it all together with a bow and add their favorite sweet treat to seal the deal.

Learn about some of our favorite makeup brands on our blog, such as Sigma Beauty and Skindinavia, or our other most-sought-after and top picks like BPerfect, Dose of Colors, Eyeko, Fancii, Girlactik, J. Cat Beauty, Jason Wu Beauty, Kimchi Chic Beauty, KROMA, Madluv, Palladio, and Pretty Vulgar, to name just a few!


A perfect stocking stuffer, nail polish not only comes in every color under the sun but also fun finishes from soft mattes or glossy gels to shimmering metallics and light-catching glitters.

Keeping hands well-manicured also makes a good first impression, but taking care of cuticles is something not enough people put time into. Nail oils not only keep the skin soft and supple but aid in new nail growth as well.

Hair Styling

More than guys, girls tend to be pretty particular about their hair. While they may have their routine down to a science, there are always a few things missing from their collection.

A new dryer, flat iron, or curler is a perfect gift for those who like to set and style a particular look, but even a new brush can be a great gift option. After all, when was the last time you swapped your hairbrush for a fresh one?

A classic present the women in your life will always appreciate is a new perfume. With fresh, floral fragrances, sweet scents, and warm, musky aromas, perfumes are perfect picks to show her you know her and what she likes.

While perfumes are traditionally given to romantic partners, even moms, sisters, or good gal pals would swoon over a new bottle of their favorite fragrance, or adore a unique aroma they haven’t gotten to try.

Some of our favorite fragrance brands include the all-natural Abel, adorable and festive Illume, ultra-fine Lady Primrose, and floral Kai.


Men are notoriously harder to shop for than women, but you’re not without luck! From shaving essentials and skincare saviors to facial hair tamers and classic colognes, there are plenty of present options for all the guys in your life.

At the end of the day, gift-giving is about showing loved ones you care, and any gift will do. But you can go above and beyond his expectations this year with a high-end find he wouldn’t have gotten himself, or a gift basket of all of his old favorites, and some new ones!

You can also check out some of our favorite brands for guys grooming like Flagship, as well as Grooming Lounge and Jack Black, both of which you can learn more about on our blog!


For clean-cut fellas, an aftershave matching his signature scent is a great gift he might have never thought of for himself.

A new shaver can help keep your guy silky smooth, but even those who like to maintain a beard or mustache can use a trimmer to create crisp lines or maintain his grooming routine.

Bath & Shower

From shampoos and cleansers to styling creams and skincare, there are numerous options to get a guy when it comes to bath and body.

Just like his afterhsave, you can match his favorite cologne to a new deodorant or body wash.

Men also tend to skimp when it comes to skincare, so providing a new moisturizer, toner, or scrub can help him feel fresh and flawless.

Or, for the men rocking some facial hair in your life, you can get washed, oils, brushes, and balms so he can maintain his hair down to the last strand.


Colognes are a classic gift no man can turn down. While he may be running low on his signature scent, presenting him with a fresh fragrance can also be a welcome surprise for the holidays as he starts the new year with a new alluring aroma.
