The Ultimate 2018 Pampering Gift Guide
It’s the most wonderful time of the year—unless you’re still trying to figure out what to gift everyone on your list. Never fear, Posh is here! We’ve got 36 pampering ideas you can give separately or use to create your own gift bundles. The best part: just about everything is under $25.
Gifts for Someone Sassy
Scented with our customer-fave sweet orchard citrus scent, Sassyooma™ So Soapy is an ultra-luxe bath bar made with 4 types of coconut for our creamiest lather ever! Pair it with Ann Shen’s popular new book, Bad Girls Throughout History ($19.95 at Urban Outfitters), and the palm-sized Mako Round Stainless Steel Flask ($13.99) from World Market.

Gifts Fit for a Queen
Only the finest for this gift-getter! Start with Ice Queen™ Purifying Gentle Peel-Off Face Mask; it features a gelatin-free formula that gently refreshes skin with lava water. Tie hair up with a Knotted Velvet Scrunchie from Free People ($8) and snack on Sugarfina Champagne Bears made with real Dom Pérignon Vintage Champagne ($9.95 at Sur La Table) while the mask sits, about 20 minutes.

Gifts for Bath Time
Give the perfect soak with sulfate-free Bubble Up™ All Mixd Up, filled with skin-softening, mineral-rich sea salt and sunflower oil. We love pairing this big bag of bath salts with soy candles from Illume; the Balsam & Cedar Good Natured Soy Candle is perfect for the holidays ($18 at Anthropologie). Throw in a Lenrue Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker in rose gold to complete your bundle (starting at $12.99, multiple sellers).

Gifts for Hands
Everyone on your list will appreciate a little love for their hands, especially during winter when they tend to get dry and crack. Sulfate-free When in Foam™ Foaming Hand Soaps don’t strip skin when you wash because they’re formulated with coconut oil and glycerin. Follow up with sodium hyaluronate-rich Ain’t That the Youth™ Super Moisturizing Hand Crème and cover up with these faux fur mittens from American Eagle Outfitters ($15.95) before heading out.

Gifts for Lips
Give the perfect pout with Smoocheroo™ Mega Lip Plumper, filled with mint and capsicum to naturally plump while conditioning lips with shea butter. To help it stay on, pair with the U Konserve Stainless Steel Straw & Brush Set ($5.95 at Earth Hero), and get bonus points for gifting environmentally friendly. Add in this Natural Life Compact Mirror ($8) to complete your lip bundle.

Gifts for Fitness Lovers
If get-up-and-go-getters are on your shopping list, stuff their stockings with Hips Don’t Lie™ Caffeinated Body Crème and this stylish Contigo ThermaLock Hydration Bottle ($19.99 at Target). Need something to put under the tree as well? How about the Gaiam Premium Cushion & Support Yoga Kit; it includes a non-slip yoga mat and foam yoga block ($14.98 at Gaiam).

Gifts that Cleanse
Out with the old, in with the new! These gifts are perfect for anyone ready for a fresh start: The Stripper™ Body Mask deep cleans pores with activated charcoal, The Little Book of Letting Go helps cleanse mind, spirit, and soul ($15.26 at Barnes & Noble), and the Get Clean® Stackable Tea Tin features 3 types of detoxifying tea for AM, PM, and all day ($14 from The Republic of Tea).

Gifts for Staying In
The weather outside is frightful! Give the gift of a cozy day in with cashmere-soft You Could Use a Hug™ Chunk Big Bath Bar filled with gently exfoliating cat’s claw bark and cotton, cozy “Happy Llamakah” socks ($3 at Target), and a warm cup of coffee or cocoa in an adorable mug. We can’t get enough of this cute Sloth-Shaped Mug ($16 at Urban Outfitters).

Gifts for Night Time
Night time was made for pampering, especially when it involves Good Hydrations™ In Shower Lotion with soothing lavender essential oil. Post shower, your gift-getter will love stepping into Restoration Hardware’s Luxe Faux Fur Slippers ($20) or relieving tired eyes with a lavender-filled eye pillow ($15 on Etsy). It can be used hot or cold and comes in lots of pretty patterns.

Gifts for Looking Glam
When you look good, you feel good, which is why giving glam gifts counts as pampering. Try these holiday party-worthy picks: Pinking Out Loud™ Liquid Highlighter looks stunning on all skin tones, Bachca Paris Bobby Pins ($5.60 at Anthropologie) are finished with gold and ivory for a more dramatic updo, and Kate Spade New York Mini Small Square Stud Earrings add just the right amount of glitter ($19.20 at Nordstrom).

Gifts for New Routines
Make 2019 the year for your best self with gifts that are all about routines, like Defiant™ Naked Youth Face Serum with micronized pearl powder and moringa oil to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, 52 Lists for Happiness ($16.95 at Anthropologie)—a weekly journal for positivity, balance, and joy, and this rose quartz face roller ($25 at Macy’s).

Gifts to Celebrate the Season
There’s just something nostalgic about oranges at Christmas. Laura Ingalls Wilder even wrote about getting one in her stocking each year in Little House on the Prairie. We took that tradition and made it a little more pampering with The Healer™ Snarky Bar and Santa’s Little Healer™ Skin Stick, scented with orange, vanilla, and peppermint essential oils. Top off this bundle with a classic Terry’s Chocolate Orange ($2.50 at Target).
