There’s something here for everyone in this holiday roundup to inspire gifts for the very tough-to-buy-for:
For Beauty Junkies
If you have beauty product-lovers on your radar this season, then UNDRGRND Beauty, an incubator for undiscovered beauty, is a fantastic source for new and clean beauty brands. For example, these two new brands from Australia would be ideal; one is a makeup brand, the other a skincare line.

Aranyani brand has exquisite purses, and now will be offering a special edition leather and red onyx bracelet too.

It is also known for possessing the power to heal, provide strength, and support in difficult and confusing times (Hello? 2020!) and to relieve stress. The bracelet is available in off-white, camel, and light blue ($140). Peruse the various bracelets at https://aranyani.com/collections/bracelets.
