Christmas is next Tuesday.  Can you believe it? If you’ve been hustling hard to make your 2019 as magical as Cardi’s 2017, you may have fallen behind on your gift grabbing duties. (I know those blog posts and breathtaking outfits don’t assemble themselves.) No need to worry, Join Dough helped me source five girl powered gift options that are sure to dazzle all the special women in your circle.

Powered by Kim Blackwell and Kent King,  Boss + Bae is a monthly subscription box service that provides makeup, hair, skincare, bath, body and lifestyle products to the doorsteps of women of color.  The marketing prowess of this All Star team turns their boxes into hot commodities—often selling out each month. According to Boss + Bae, “each box is curated to embrace and enhance the natural beauty you posses both inside and out, with products that inspire creativity, joy, discovery and self-love.”  Enjoy the unboxing video below to get a feel for what the brand carries.

The January box includes the “Bella” Blush by the company’s indie beauty favorite, Juvia’s Place.

2. For the Momprenuer: Momma Bird Tee, The Bee And The Fox $28

Your friends with little ones are sure to swoon over this absolutely adorable Momma Bird tee that comes with a Little Bird onsie add-on.  The reviews left on the site by moms who’ve ordered from the brand all raved about how excited they were to match with their bundles of joy.

“I absolutely love my Mama Bird T-shirt, especially when I can wear it with my daughter in her ‘Baby Bird’ T shirt. They wash well, and arrived in great time with gorgeous packaging. I’m super impressed and I would without a doubt purchase from the Bee the Fox again.”

3. For The Nail Addict: Clio 25th & June $12

Getting pampered shouldn’t mean subjecting yourself to harsh, toxic chemicals.  Get your favorite nail addict to go vegan with this gorgeous polish in “sultry chocolate-brown”.


4. For the MUA: Versailles Matte Lip Whip, Beauty Bakerie $20

According to Beauty Bakerie buyers can look forward to a lip color that is, “smudge-proof and royal, Versailles Lip Whip goes on liquid and dries matte. With all-day coverage in just one pigmented application, the berry-sienna hue will make you feel fit to be the queen of your very own Château.”

5. For The Free Spirit, AKA the Unicorn: Celestial Crown Clip, Wild And Free Jewelry $29

We all have that one woman in our lives who creates magic wherever she goes.  I suggest delighting her with a gift that is as uniquely royal as she is.  Wild and Free Jewelry makes one of a kind Celestial Crown Clips to order.  The crown features a, “delicate collection of cosmic charms on a metal chain that easily clips into the hair with extension clips for a no hassle, lightweight crown.”
