Holiday gifting can be tough, especially when there’s so much out there to shop for! A gift we never tire of receiving is the gift of skincare… and for good reason! A simple and effective skincare routine is an investment in the long-term health of your skin - who wouldn’t love that?
If you’re giving skincare to your loved ones this year, we’re here to guide you in the right direction.
Know your recipient's skin type?
If you know your recipient’s skin type, it makes shopping a little easier on your end. Our skincare sets are curated by general skin types with recommendations for products that typically work well for those constitutions. These sets include a travel-size cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and/or serum and are a great introduction for anyone new to organic skincare.
Our Starter Set is a simple three-step routine: Gentle Cleanser (travel size), Rose Water Toner (travel size), Daily Face Cream ($95) that includes our best-selling products great for most skin types, especially normal skin. It’s a simple and effective routine that makes it easy to nurture the skin.
The Dry Skin Set is a three-step routine: Essential Enzymes (travel size), Rose Geranium Hydrosol (travel size), Restorative Face Cream ($105) that works great for those who have dry/dehydrated skin or who live in cold weather or low humidity locations.
The Acne-Prone Skin Set is a four-step routine: Gentle Cleanser (travel size), Toner (travel size), Hydrating Serum, and Clarity Oil ($162) that’s wonderful for teens or those who struggle with blemishes. A simple yet powerful routine that protects the skin and addresses breakouts.
The Oily/Congested Skin Set is a four-step routine: Balancing Oil Cleanser (travel size), Rose Geranium Hydrosol (travel size), Hydrating Serum, Replenishing Facial Oil ($165) - perfect for those who have excess sebum in the skin or congested, blemish-prone skin.

If your recipient is in between skin types, feel free to reach out to us and our Master Estheticians can guide you to the right skincare set.
Don’t know your recipient’s skin type?
No worries! We have many amazing products to gift your loved one this year.
Giving gift sets
If you’re looking to give a skincare set, our Starter Set is a great go-to for all skin types and a perfect introduction to organic, plant-based skincare.
We also have powdered masks sold in an Apothecary Set and Remedy Set which pair perfectly with our Essential Enzymes. Our Apothecary Set includes all four of our powdered masks: Kale Mask, Flower Mask, Exfoliation Mask, and Sulfur Mask - this collection is a vital addition to any home apothecary. Our Remedy Set includes six each of our Sulfur Mask and Exfoliation Mask, both indicated for blemish-prone and inflamed skin. These sets also pair wonderfully with our Beyond Botnia tools!
Skincare stocking stuffers
For stocking stuffers, our travel-size products and travel roll are the perfect addition to any stocking. Beyond Botnia tools like facial brushes, mother of pearl shell spoons, eye pillows, and reusable hemp facial pads also make great gifts for skincare fanatics.
As estheticians, we love gifting Hydrosols this time of year. We like to think of hydrosols as powerful single-ingredient skincare. They are the water by-product of a botanical that includes the immune system of a plant. Our seasonal hydrosol plants are harvested at the peak of their potency and distilled in an alembic still, creating a beautiful tonic that’s a wonderful addition to any skincare routine. Because different plants contain different plant immunities, you always want to check for contraindications depending on the plant used for the hydrosol, especially for pregnant women and new moms.
For gifting skincare under the tree
Looking for something broadly appealing? Our body products are great for everyone!
Botnia’s Body Cream has a cult following, especially because our spa partners love using it in their treatments to massage the arms, feet, and legs during a facial. It’s a great introductory product that works for all. It even comes in a cute little travel-size tin if you’re looking for a stocking stuffer. In addition to Body Cream, our Relaxing Bath Salts make a great pairing, especially for those who love taking baths. No bathtub? The Luminous Body Scrub, a hydrating blend of botanical oils and butters that smooth skin texture and restore your radiance, is a good alternative for those who only have a shower.
Anyone who works with their hands will love our Gentle Hand Soap and Gentle Hand Lotion (which can also be used all over the body), a deluxe nourishing duo that keeps hands supple and soft all year round.
For skincare addicts
If you’re feeling extra giving, you can always book a Botnia Facial with one of our spa partners around the nation, offering one of the best experiences your recipient is sure to love.
As always, for those pickier recipients who prefer to choose their own presents, our e-gift card is a good option for the skincare lover in your life. We offer complimentary skincare consultations with our gift cards if your friend or family member needs recommendations for a unique skincare routine made just for them.
No matter what you decide to give this year, skincare and self-care are thoughtful gifts that nourish and make your loved one feel extra special. We’re always here to help make any recommendations, so please feel free to reach out to us via DM or email anytime! Thank you for thinking of us and for buying skincare from Botnia! Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season!
