Uncategorized Spring Gift Guide

April 5, 2019by Courtney Elise0

Spring is in the air! Easter has come and gone, Mother’s Day, Bridal Showers and more are just around the corner!

I’ve put together a few of my favorite things  that I think that special someone in your life might love too for any occasion!

Disclaimer- some of these items I am an affiliate and/or consultant for. However, most are just items I like and think you will too and I get nothing in return if you buy them!

For the safer beauty product lover (mother’s day and/or father’s day options)

The “Flawless in Five” set is a great way to help the special lady in your life make the switch to safer make-up. It includes SIX total products. Foundation, concealer, brow pencil or gel, mascara, blush and a lip gloss! This was my first purchase ever and I have never looked back.

PRO TIP since it is an investment at $150 ($187 value) try splitting the cost between your brothers and sisters to give to your mom!

Counterman Shave Regimen   Beauty Counter has safer skin care for the bearded guy in your life too. Or the one who shaves a lot! You can find 3 different sets to choose from or purchase individual products! Great gift idea for a groom to be and it’s never too early to start planning for Father’s Day!

For the new or soon to be parents

Welcome Baby Gift Set is the ultimate and super thoughtful baby shower gift. Safe ingredients that any new mom or dad would love. Only $65

Milestone blanket – inexpensive and SO ADORABLE

Make it a basket: bathtub theme with Beauty Counter’s Baby Wash , with a washcloth and towel set like this one 

For the Newlyweds

His and hers coffee mugs Hubby an Wifey $15

Instant Pot – I use mine ALL the time $70 (ON SALE)

6 in 1 cake plate  We use this as a platter, for salads, punch bowl, chips and salsa! We use it for so many things! $21

For the Vacationers

Safer Sunscreen  Countersun mineral sunscreen, goes on like a dream and will protect you from those summer ray’s! Travel size only $20

Book Girl Stop Apologizing– Rachel Hollis- everyone needs a good read laying by the pool or on the beach! less than $15

Book Food Freedom Forever– Melissa Urban- another great by the pool, on the plane, toes in the sand read! less than $13

Hydro Flask Water Bottle– must stay hydrated while you’re out in the sun. This bottle is less than $30

For the coffee lover

Yeti Mug with handle- I have this mug and LOVE it. Keeps my coffee hot (or cold) and it is super cute! Under $25

nutpods – only the best dairy-free creamer on the planet. It’s unsweet too because your special someone is already sweet enough 🙂 The new caramel is AMAZING but you can always do an e-gift card and let them pick out their own! If you’re a first time nutpod purchaser use my code “CoffeeCarrotsandCurls” for 15% off your order!

Coffee Candle need I say more? I have purchased several of these for myself and others as gifts and they are ALWAYS a hit.  $15

Other Favorite Coffee Mugs: $20 and under

My Mother Was Right About Everything

Dad, You’ve Always Been Like a Father To Me

Hello Beautiful initial mug

I Like Romantic Walks Down Every Aisle at Target


Make it a basket: Give it solo or add candle to a basket with a coffee mug, and some coffee beans and maybe a carton of nutpods or a Starbucks gift card!

Collagen – I love Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. There are SO many to choose from now. From collagen water, to collagen creamers or flavorless and odorless peptides you can add to your coffee. Benefits include improved joint health, glowing skin, strengthening hair, nails, better quality of sleep and improved metabolism. PRO TIP- this is an investment which is why it would make SUCH a great gift on it’s own or in a basket with other coffee products! This is also great in smoothies!

You can be creative with any of these gifts in multiple different ways. These ideas can be a starting point to create your own incredible basket for the new parents who need self-care too and deserve safer skincare products (yes, dad too)! Not to mention, the new mama might love the rejuvenating skin care to help feel refreshed with late night feedings. And remember, you don’t have to purchase the full set as you can buy individual products too.

At the end of the day, any effort you put into someone’s gift is what matters. Even if it’s just an “I appreciate you” note. Send a gift, or snail mail, just let the special someone’s in your life know that you care about them.
