This holiday season, POPSUGAR Beauty tapped some of our favorite influencers, including popular brand owners, bloggers, pros, and celebrities, to share the gifts they would like to receive or give. Find more gifting inspiration here.
When it comes to natural beauty, Tata Harper leads the pack. Her eponymous brand of holistic skin care products is handmade on her farm in Vermont and has grown a cult following. First of all, the products smell and feel amazing (super botanical and fresh!), and as a user, I can attest that they actually work.
Since Tata has such great advice — such as when to toss expired products or how to curate a less-toxic skin care routine — we asked her for holiday shopping advice.
"Getting gifts for friends can be a lot of fun, but can definitely be challenging," Tata said. "When I'm looking for gifts, I think about my friends' interests, so I can give them something that really feels special and like it was selected just for them. I usually look for things they wouldn't necessarily buy for themselves, things that will make them feel good, that will pamper them, or products that will help make their lives better or easier. When it comes to wellness-related gifts, I focus on things that will give peace of mind, since most people are trying to find what's right for them and are looking for tips or guidance."
Here, she rounded up her holistic gift-giving picks for the holiday season.
