If there is one thing these crazy past 2 years has taught us – never underestimate the power of washing your hands. Unfortunately it has also reminded us that lots of washing = dry skin. For the gal pal who’s always cracking you up, give her a gift that will keep her hands from feeling that way. Two gentle formulas designed to revive dry hands. Both the Hand Wash and Hand Cream are packed with nourishing ingredients, such as organic aloe and calming chamomile, and leave a subtle, refreshing citrus scent. Beauty Counter only uses high quality ingredients in sustainable packaging and they also actively support and give back to organizations striving to improve the beauty industry’s standards for what goes into their products and the packages they are made of.
Your cardio-loving gal pal is going to love these. Built with all the bells and whistles an athlete could want including impact-resistant polarized lenses with UV400 protection, soft rubber nose pads that keep her frames on her face when things get sweaty, and quality spring hinges that ensure a solid fit without pinching. We’re loving these smoky gray and yellow lens option but guess what? There is literally a rainbow of other color options for both the frames and the lenses. Still don’t see the combo you like? Check out the Custom option area and design your friend her new favorite workout glasses from the ground up.

For the friend who never shirks from a hands-on project. This instructional book contains illustrated tool guides, how-to projects, essential skills, and stories from real-world builder girls and women.

There are cookies, and then there are cookies. Guess which these are? If your gal pal’s spirit animal is Cookie Monster, she’ll be doing cartwheels for these. Milk Bar is a sweet (and occasionally savory) shop that’s been turning familiar treats upside down and on their heads, shaking up the dessert scene since 2008. Bon Appetit magazine called them “one of the most exciting bakeries in the country.” Their flavorful treats are delish and sometimes unexpected (like their Cornflake-Chocolate-Chip-Marshmallow cookie). What a sweet choice!
