We know how it goes. The closer it gets to the holidays, the more you start to panic that you haven’t chosen the *perfect* gift for everyone on your list. Or maybe you’ve chosen one gift but still want something extra. For instance, if you splurged on the latest pricey blow dryer you might still want to enhance it with a thoughtful stocking stuffer as well. Here’s a thought, what if you treat them to something you know they’ll love and use? May we humbly suggest some of our top-selling hair care products?
Shampoo or styling products make perfect stocking stuffers. They’re also a great idea since you don’t have to worry about sizing – it’s always the right fit! And to make things a bit easier, we’ll break things down by top-selling shampoo, conditioner, and hair treatment products to give you an idea of what your mom, bestie, aunt, niece, sister-in-law, and every friend on your list really wants.

For Curly Girls
Have a cousin with curls, coils, locks, or dreads? Well, gift-giving just got a whole lot easier. We think the entire Curl Talk collection will make a phenomenal gift. Choose one (or all!) products from the collection and wrap festive ribbons around the bottles individually or wrap for a surprise gift. Curl Talk™ 3-in-1 Conditioner can be used as a conditioner or a leave in treatment to add softness and shine. Curl Talk™ Frizz Control Sculpting Gel allows you to scrunch or comb without any flakes while controlling frizz. Curl Talk™ Defining Cream helps define every single teeny or tremendous curl. Curl Talk™ Activating Mousse helps enhance the look of curls. And Curl Talk™ Hard Hold Gel is great at tackling frizz on even rainy blah days. Top things off with Curl Talk™ Scalp & Hair Treatment Oil which nourishes all curls. You can round out this gift by adding a cute hair wrap or silk kerchief.
For Your Zen Friend
If you have a friend who loves yoga or Pilates and is happiest when meditating, you know that she’s always looking for ways to keep calm and happy. Help her create a mini spa retreat with Not Your Mother’s Matcha Green Tea & Wild Apple Blossom Nutrient Rich collection. While in theory these products are best for wavy hair, they add a moisture boost to hair in need of moisture or extra treatment. Bonus points if you add a cute handwritten spa card explaining your gift. For instance, add the Matcha Green Tea & Wild Apple Blossom Hair Mask and let your friend know that it’s boosted with antioxidants (and good vibes only!).

For the Beachy Babe
What is it about the ocean that makes so many people feel happier and more relaxed? Well, we’re here for it! If your mom has embraced the Coastal Grandma trend full on, she’ll probably love our Beach Babe collection. Beach Babe Sea Salt Spray adds texture and the right kind of messiness, while Beach Babe Sea Salt Spray allows anyone to create soft perfect beachy waves. And she won’t have to head to the salon for a treatment if you gift her Blonde Hair Lightener. While it won’t create butter colored highlights on brunettes, it will add a lift to most shades. Check out the entire Beach Babe collection here. (Did we mention how incredible each and every vegan product smells? Ahhhh).
Some thoughts on gifting hair care products:
- While we package products for minimum waste, we do advise making sure your gift won’t leak. Use a small piece of clear tape over the opening of each bottle to ensure your gift doesn’t ruin anything placed nearby.
- Listen to your friends or fam. If your niece talks about how much she looooves her curls, it’s a great idea to treat her to product that enhances what she already has. But if she complains about frizz, consider opting for treatment products and let her know you’re coming over to share a home spa day together.
- And finally, consider including a note that lets your favorite friend know that you chose her gift with intent. Nearly every Not Your Mother’s product is sulfate free, vegan, Sulfate surfactant free. A thoughtful gift can be thoughtful on many levels.
