Springtime Birthday Beauty Gift Guide
Gift packs (especially those with beauty products and tasty treats) are universally loved. If you’re struggling with what to buy for a Spring birthday buddy, make a gift pack!
Here’s my guide for a Springtime birthday gift pack for friends who love beauty as much as we do…
Hydrating and brightening face masks
Face masks are a perfect gift idea, as many people don’t think to buy one for themselves. Pick out a natural sheet mask filled with juicy serums and free from synthetic fragrance. The Formula 10.0.6 Soak Your Face Mask ($7.49) is excellent for giving the skin a tall glass of water. This is kind of like saying “you deserve time out to chill, rest, and pamper yourself”.
Vitamin C facial spray
Springtime means fresh, vibrant skin, and Vitamin C is the ticket. Facial sprays are fun and easy to use either under or over your morning and evening skincare. They also give the skin a drink and a glow-up during the day. The Pacifica Sea + C Brightening Mist ($7) has a simple ingredients list with Vitamin C and Kelp as the stars.
Creamy blush and highlight palette
Cream products are coming back, especially for Spring. They’re naturally dewy, easy to apply with the fingers, and blend seamlessly into the skin and base products. A fresh complexion with rosy cheeks and light-catching high points is a gift for the gods. The Kosas Color & Light ($34) cream blush and highlight palette is buildable and contains loving ingredients such as rosehip seed oil.
A light night cream
It’s so easy to get into the habit of slapping on your everyday moisturizer at night, especially when you run out of night cream. Give the birthday girl or boy the gift of overnight Spring skin replenishment with a dedicated night cream.
The Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Face Cream ($48) is completely divine, giving brightness, youth, and moisture. However, it’s pretty pricey. The Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Anti-Wrinkle Deep Wrinkle Night Moisturizer ($19.49) is more wallet-friendly but still very effective.
Note: maybe it’s a good idea to add a little note to the night cream “P.S I’m not suggesting you’re getting old or have wrinkles.”
A lip scrub and lippie
Springtime is all about renewing, refreshing, and looking on the bright side. It’s also about glowing, fresh skin and happy colors. A lip scrub is a much-needed beauty weapon after the drying months of Winter.
Pop a lip scrub into the basket, and a fresh, flattering lip color to make the most of those smooth, scrubbed-up kissers. The LiveGlam “Girls Just Wanna Have Sun” KissMe Collection includes a scrub pencil (no messy fingers!), nude brown, and matte coral liquid lippie to suit basically anyone.
To polish it all off, throw in a bottle of their favorite wine, most-loved chocolate treats, and a card with all of your love!
