Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts For The Beauty Queen

Hi ladies! Today is a gift guide day on the blog, but it’s one I’m very excited to share with y’all! You girls know I love beauty and skincare products, so this one was very fun for me to put together. It’s hard to narrow down my top picks, honestly, but I believe everything below is the best of the best quality-wise! It’s filled with a mix items I personally use and love and items that have caught my eye and would love to get my hands on!

I wanted to be sure to share this gift guide before Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales ended because I know a lot of them will still be marked down, so keep an eye out for sales when you click the item you’d like to shop! I hope you enjoy this one and find a product or two for someone you love and also a little something for yourself! ALSO – apologies that the sales aren’t marked! We had to work really far ahead to get everything done before the holiday and can’t always wait until the sale launches to get these style boards made but I can assure you 95% of these items are on sale. If you can’t click on the item … I’ll highlight them specifically below!

A couple of call-out’s …

Primally Pure is where I get my charcoal natural deodorant that I am shocked to say I’m obsessed with. Enjoy 25% off with my code ALYSONHALEY25. Normally, my code offers you 10% off but this weekend ONLY they are giving an incredibly generous discount! ALL of their products are amazing, completely natural, made of no artificial materials, and cruelty free! Highly recommend!

There are a few items from Amazon I’d recommend like these microfiber headbands to keep your hair out of your face while taking your makeup off and these gentle and reusable makeup removing pads. They’re environmentally friendly and better for your skin than makeup removing wipes.

Also, Riki Loves Riki is offering 25% off their light-up mirror’s. I featured my new Riki Tall mirror yesterday on stories and so many of you said you snagged it, which I’m happy to hear. It’s a little pricey so I’d like to just say that I used the Riki Skinny before that for over a year and it is just as good and would also make a great gift!

    I’m still not receiving the newsletter that I signed up for a months back! Can someone please help with this!

    Also, I moved to Scotland from NYC 2 years ago (met my now-husband there whom is Scottish), but had followed AH when I lived in the states. Can we please please get some more shopping inspo/deals for the UK gals? I struggled with Black Friday this year!

    Thanks so much,

      Hi Brooke! Every week, on IG stories, I share who you can email to sort out newsletters if you’re not receiving them. I apologize that message hasn’t made it to the blog. Email Stacy, my assistant, at

      In regard to assisting UK gals, I completely understand it’s frustrating to not have someone to help you navigate all that there is going on with regard to sales where you are. I ask that you give me time to cater more to my UK followers. While I do appreciate that you are here and trust me enough to help you, my audience is 97% American and compiling Black Friday content for the US is quite a mission, even with a team AND while also preparing to celebrate a holiday. My hope is that, as time goes on and as the world normalizes, I’ll be able to grow my team here in the UK so that I can give more to those of you who follow me here. I had every intention of putting together a list strictly for UK girls [it’s halfway done in a draft on the blog] but there are only so many hours in a day and it just didn’t happen. It’s confusing for you guys, I’m sure, because it seems like common sense for me to share UK stuff now but, this is how I support myself and my business, so while I DO intend to grow the UK side of things …. it’s just been a very weird year to do so between our living situation / limited space, getting pregnant and not always feeling 100%, Covid, and just not shopping so much in general … and, for now, I needed to focus on helping the majority to stay afloat. Hope you can understand that position and also that I intend to be more helpful to my UK gals in the future!
