At holiday time, the thought that you put into each gift is something the recipient will always remember. And over the years, we’ve learned that gifts that recognize our loved ones’ needs and passions are often the most appreciated. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of gifts that anyone on your list would appreciate, from adventurous souls to precious fur babies.
Gifts for Adventurous Friends
Know someone who is curious by nature? How about that friend who’s always open to new experiences? Tapping into someone’s naturally adventurous side is simple when it comes to self-care. And you won’t break the bank with these small but mighty discovery sets. For the classic world explorer, the White Moss Discovery Set includes miniature versions of hair and body essentials plus “try me” vials of our matching eau de cologne and eau de parfum.
Shopping for an elegant friend with refined tastes? The regenerating Calycanthus Discovery Set abounds with classic floral notes of peony, neroli, and jasmine with musk, peach, and orange blossom honey on the finish. The combination of bar soap, shower gel, body lotion, and eau de parfum makes this the perfect layering set.
Gifts for Pet Owners and Fur Babies
No gift giving season would be complete without a few niceties for the furry friends in our lives. If you or someone you know loves that fresh-from-the-groomers scent, then having a high quality DIY grooming kit can turn bath time into bonding time. Dog shampoo should remove grime and odor while caring for both your dog’s coat and skin. Our vegan-friendly Delicate Dog Shampoo strengthens and nourishes your dog’s hair with rice protein and linseed oil. It also contains bamboo extract that works to untangle matted hair.
Man’s best friend also deserves a quality brush for detangling and distributing natural oils. Many dual-sided brushes use sub-par bristles, which can scratch and irritate your dog’s skin. Our Dog Brush uses gentle pins with rounded tips to gently ease out tangles along with natural boar’s bristles to increase shine and remove loose hair. When used daily, your dog’s coat will look fluffier, healthier, and shinier.
Hair Care Gifts for Kids
Whether you’re teaching your young granddaughter how to care for her long locks or instilling good self-care habits in your son, the right tool is essential. A gentle detangling brush unsnarls knots without tugging or aggravating your child’s tender scalp. Our No Tears Detanglers are crafted with sturdy, shock resistant beechwood, so they won’t break when dropped. Beechwood is soft to the touch, and each brush was made specifically for a child’s hand. And if your youngster’s hair is prone to frizz, these brushes are anti-static, and the bristles gently massage the scalp to encourage hair growth.
For kids with thick or curly hair, we recommend choosing natural bristles to help distribute the hair’s natural oils from scalp to ends. My First Hairbrush – Natural Strength & Shine is a child-sized version of our bestselling Kotibe Wood and Boar’s Bristles brush. The wave-shaped handle makes it easy to hold, so your child will enjoy the self-care process in comfort.
Gifts for Eco-Conscious Loved Ones
Almost everyone knows the importance of sustainability and eco-friendly practices, and giving gifts that are as good for the environment as they are for your loved ones is a wonderful way to celebrate every day of the year. Interest in waterless beauty products has exploded in recent years, and bar soap has never been in greater demand. Unlike mass produced bar soap that can strip the skin of essential oils, our triple cold milled soap bars are packed with skin loving ingredients as well as luxurious scents to invigorate or soothe your senses. Add a couple to a gift basket with one of our biodegradable brushes, and you’ll be doubly thanked for your kindness to both friends and Mother Earth.
And don’t forget that an Acca Kappa gift card makes a thoughtful addition to a holiday stocking or greeting card as well.
Happy Holidays from your friends at Acca Kappa!
