At last, the ever-expanding beauty bubble has become a genderless playground for every member on your holiday shopping list. And when shopping for a gift for the wedding party members on your list, bride, groom, and everything in between, there’s a trick that’s worth considering: Unlike those ever-so-carefully-selected items of clothing, beauty always fits.
A luxury fragrance in the form of a luminary candle, like Frederic Malle’s Bois de Santal, for example, will always find a place to throw its smokey scent. Or perhaps the year’s arguably most buzzed-about cult product, Augustinus Bader’s The Rich Cream (beloved by makeup artists like Gucci Westman) makes sense for a bride searching for day-of skincare secrets. Now that wellness, even the woo woo kind, is fully embraced, consider broadening your horizons. Soft’s Ritual Set, complete with Moisture Mask, matches, and palo santo wood collected from naturally fallen branches (the only way they’ll share those chill-out powers!) offers a unisex excuse to take a personal moment. WTHN’s Ear Seed Kit, complete with gold and crystal options, could bring the traditional Chinese medicine methods of balance and relaxation to any stressed-out groom before (or after) that elaborate winter wedding finally ensues.
