The Ultimate Self-Care Gift Guide

Let’s break it down: YOU want to give everyone on your list thoughtful gifts they will actually use (and love). WE want to make it effortless for you.

Let’s do this! We’ve put together a self-care gift guide stocked with the Aveda holiday gift sets that NUOVO guests love to give (and receive) year after year.

All Aveda products for hair, skin and body are 100% vegan, cruelty free, nourishing, and formulated with the finest ingredients Mother Nature can provide. Of course, all have that tantalizing Aveda aroma. All come pre-wrapped and ready to give . . . this year with the most gorgeous Phillip Lim packaging.

Not to mention . . . it’s smart shopping! Bundled in limited-edition gift sets, these best selling Aveda products are 20% less than if sold separately.

Get your shopping over and done now, and make everyone happy! Here are some ideas:


Intense, long-lasting moisture to-go? It doesn’t come from the North Pole, but from Aveda’s Moisturizing Travel Trio. Quenching Lip Saver and travel-size Hand Relief and Foot Relief all have a clean, unisex aroma and deep hydration that lasts and lasts.


Thank your favorite teacher for their endless patience with the iconic Shampure aroma to soothe frazzled nerves. Shampure Aromatic Essentials contains Shampure’s gentle, mini-size shampoo and conditioner plus full-size, limited-edition Pure-Fume mist for body, air freshening, or to give bedding a calming spritz.


Put a little sparkle in their life with the plumping, moisturizing Feed My Lips Gloss Duo. Both provide iridescent shine to be worn alone or over a favorite lip color to add that extra va-va-voom. The mini glosses come in two shades: gold and rose gold.


Tick off all mom’s boxes by giving her something both practical and luxurious . . . brings a spa right to her shower . . . and lets her enjoy good hair days, every day.

If her tresses crave moisture, she’ll love the Nutriplenish Hydration Set in Deep or Light, both of which come with a fabulous trio of Phillip Lim scrunchies. Or, if it’s damage repair mom needs, the Botanical Repair Strengthening Deluxe Collection will give her tresses a quick turnaround (and comes with the cutest Phillip Lim terry hair towel we ever saw).


Raising your significant other couldn’t have been easy. Show your appreciation by lavishing her hard-working hands and feet with deep, decadent moisture both home and on-the-go. Hand Relief & Foot Relief Home & Travel Essentials contain Aveda’s best selling hand and foot cremes in both full and travel sizes, to soothe and soften even the driest of extremities.


Level up his shave kit with the Invigorating Gift Set for Him. Aveda Men’s high-performing Pure-Formance Shave Cream protects from irritation and razor burn while smelling seriously great. Also comes with an energizing Rosemary Mint Hand & Body Wash and unscented, soothing Lip Saver for all-day moisture and relief.


Introduce the blonde in your life to their new must-have hair care with the Blonde Revival Purple Toning Gift Set. This shampoo and conditioner banishes brassiness, keeps color true between salon touch-ups, and gently infuses hair with softness. (The gift comes with an awesome Phillip Lim scrunchie set, too!)


Their glorious curls are enviable, but not easy to maintain. Anyone on your list blessed with bountiful curls will open a Nutriplenish Moisture Collection in Deep or Light and say “How did you know?” Both formulas provide long-lasting hair hydration with decadent superfood formulas—and both come with a wide-tooth detangling comb which (trust us) anyone with curls will need.


Set the stage for a girls’ night IN with the necessities: a face masque, bottle of wine, movie and lots to talk about. The Botanical Kinetics Face Masque Essentials set contains a full-size clay masque, intense hydrating masque, and facial application brush.


Delight the hostess with the mostest with the Hand Relief Iconic Trio in three gorgeous, limited-edition aromas . . . calming Shampure, sweet Cherry Almond, and uplifting Rosemary Mint . . . to drench dry winter skin in healing, soothing moisture.


Ever had that awkward moment when someone arrives with an unexpected gift and you have nothing to reciprocate? By now, you’ve learned to have a pre-wrapped item on hand for these moments, and here is this year’s: a Rosemary Mint Bath Set. Complete with a bath bar and Hand Relief moisturizing creme in the energizing unisex Rosemary Mint aroma, it’s so universally appealing they’ll never know you didn’t buy it just for them!


Everyone loves luxe prezzies in stashable sizes . . . and SO many Aveda products come in travel sizes. They are portable, practical, TSA-friendly, and make fabulous gifts. For a personal touch, browse from a wide variety of hair, skin and body products at NUOVO, or shop online here.
