Holiday shopping for loved ones is one of our favorite things to do - so we decided to share the love and to make things a whole lot easier for you, with our very own Holiday Gift Guide!
Team LT’s philosophy is that you should give gifts that will bring someone happiness, while also supporting a brand that emanates something you believe in. That way you know you’ve picked something special, for that someone special. Without further ado, here is our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide that *hopefully* has a little something for everyone on your list. If anything, we hope this gives you some gift-spiration. Happy Shopping!
Sayran | Halu Chain
‘Halu’ translates to ‘sweet’ in Arabic so we plan on giving this eye-inspired symbol of protection, to the sweet soul in our life who loves to accessorize. The necklace is handmade with gold plated hardware and beaded eyes, right here in Los Angeles.
Inspired by her Kurdish culture, Sayran hand-makes all the unique jewelry pieces on her site and we think they make great *tinty* presents, for anyone who loves to wear jewelry with a meaning behind it! You’ll be the favorite gift giver this year with any Sayran piece, while also supporting a woman-owned small business.
The Radhi Weekender is a premium vegan leather bag with a production process that is less harmful than even other vegan leather products, and is 100% cruelty-free. The designers thought of everything one could possibly need in a travel bag, from the size, to the number of pockets, soft interior lining and a sliding suitcase handle.
What do we do when our favorite conscious living friend, teams up with a 100% cruelty free fashion house? We immediately hit add to cart. There is a challenge in finding beautiful, high-quality travel bags, that are also sleek and functional. Salima (the Founder of Samara) and Radhi Devlukia-Shetty recognized this challenge and designed a solution. Tint Fam, this is THE gift for the serial traveller in your life.
Cuyana | Recycled Cashmere Soft Wrap Sweater
Gift someone the softest sweater, crafted in the best possible way, with this beautiful Recycled Cashmere Soft Wrap Sweater from Cuyana.
There’s a reason we teamed up with fashion brand, Cuyana, for our LA and NYC Pop Ups, Tint Fam. They just released a new line of clothing, made in Italy from 95% recycled cashmere! Each sweater is created by recycling existing sweaters and breaking them down to fibers which are in turn, spun into new, high-quality yarns. The original colors of the fibers are preserved to eliminate dyes from the manufacturing process, therefore avoiding the use of excess water and energy. We’re here for these sustainability practices, not to mention, Cuyana was founded by two women of color.
Taylor Jay | Berry Cowl Jumper
If this doesn’t look like the comfiest Jumpsuit in the world… you’re not looking close enough. The 100% cotton jumper is a versatile, fashionable and comfortable piece for the person in your life that is always on-the-go.
Taylor Jay is known for her elevated fashion pieces and is on our list of go-to brands, for luxury basics. With comfort, inclusivity and sustainability featured in all of the pieces, we’re more than happy to support this WOC-founded brand, especially with “a promise to all women to empower them with clothing that will adapt to their evolution.”
P.F. Candle Co. | Essentials Gift Set
Three best-selling mini soy candles, packaged in a P.F. branded kraft box set and ready for gifting!
We’re suckers for a good candle, especially when they come from a business that started as a one-woman operation AND whose products are all vegan, cruelty-free, and phthalate-free. Scents are so personal that it’s hard to pick the right one for your candle loving friend - that’s why sets like this one, make the perfect gifts. P.S. The candles are also made from 100% domestically-grown soy wax - ensuring goodness for health and environment.
Ranavat | Jasmine Tonique Hydrating Mist
One of our favorite Ranavat products is the Jasmine Tonique Hydrating Mist. It’s packed full of antioxidants and defends against environmental stressors aka the must-have gift for anyone on your list who needs some serious TLC.
Inspired by her love of Ayurvedic tradition, Michelle Ranavat has created some majestic botanical products with the highest standard of ingredients... and we think they’d all make incredible gifts. The WOC founded brand only uses the purest botanicals that are never diluted with unnecessary additives, along with being cruelty-free, gluten-free, non-gmo, palm-free and devoid of synthetic fragrances!
Fenty Beauty | Glossy Posse Mini Collection
We couldn’t create a Holiday Gift Guide and not include one of our most popular *Tinted Picks* - so here we have a mini gloss bomb in the bestselling shade Fu$$y PLUS 4 more new shades!
The great thing about this set is that you can gift the whole set to one person, or use each individual gloss as a stunning stocking stuffer. Don’t forget you’d be supporting an inclusive, woc-owned brand that is also 100% cruelty-free!
e.l.f. xo Nabela Noor | Complete Collection
Our favorite boundary breaking Bangladeshi-American, Nabela Noor, collaborated with beauty brand e.l.f. Cosmetics and the collection is a no-brainer when it comes to gift giving.
The beauty influencer is known for her empowering attitude, all about embracing what makes you uniquely beautiful. Basically Tint Fam, this is a collab we’re excited to support and get behind, especially because e.l.f. is cruelty-free, paraben-free and 100% vegan.
Anastasia Beverly Hills | Jackie Aina Palette
The Jackie Aina x ABH eyeshadow palette is a limited edition collection of 14 all-new shadows, perfect for the person in your life who loves themselves some glam. The wide range of shades allow for everything from cool to warm and neutral to bold looks. With Jackie’s makeup expertise behind this palette, you know it’s one not to be missed out on.
Youtuber, Influencer, Content Creator, Queen and Advocate for visibility of people of color in the cosmetic industry, Jackie, has done so much for WOC and is a genuine person who we love and always want to support.
LIVE TINTED | THE HUESTICKS
Last but by no means least, The Huesticks! Vegan, Clean, Cruelty-Free, Hypoallergenic and packed full of skin care ingredients - there really is no downside.
You’ve tried them for yourself, now share the *tinty* love with your friends and family. Each Huestick comes individually packaged so you can gift someone the full set, or separate them for fun stocking stuffers. (You can even keep one as a gift to yourself!) The Huesticks make especially great gifts for the person in your life who likes to wear a little makeup but doesn’t want to use 10 different products on the daily. Shop the set of three including PERK, RISE & ORIGIN as is, or MIX & MATCH any three shades, only on livetinted.com.
That’s everything for the Holiday Gift Guide 2019! Tint Fam, we hope this guide was helpful and would love to know if you purchase anything on the list or if you have any other ideas, in the comments below. We’re looking forward to this upcoming season and the New Year and hope y’all have a safe and happy end of the year!
Happy Holidays! xo Team Live Tinted
