It’s the holiday season, which means it’s time to do some gift shopping! We’re sharing our favorite picks for anyone on your list—check out all of our gift guides here!

If there’s anything this last year has taught us, it’s that baths will never go out of style, and sometimes there’s nothing better than soaking in a big tub. Salt scrubs and bath bombs are everywhere, and you can buy all sorts of accoutrements to personalize the bathing experience. The “bathleisure” trend is showing no signs of slowing down, and it’s something most of us can get behind. If anyone in your circle is a bathing beauty type, these bathleisure gifts will go over big.

1. Clear Your Head Kit

If a scalp massage sounds heavenly to you, it’ll probably sound that way to your sibling or coworker, too. This kit, which comes with a massager and essential oil mist, makes it easy to dive head first (get it?) into self-care.

2. Face Mask

This vegan peel is like gifting a glow up. Packed with powerful blue algae and vitamin C, it resurfaces and exfoliates to reduce the look of dark spots and discoloration. Splurge on a bottle for a pal who hasn’t had a facial in months. It’ll be much appreciated.
