It’s beginning to look a lot like the holiday shopping season!
Buying gifts for people we care about is fun, and it lets you show them what they mean to you. Yet, when you combine the challenge of finding the right present for your choosy sister, your mom (who says she doesn’t want anything), or your bestie who has everything with finding a parking space in a mall parking lot this time of year is enough to turn “ho, ho, ho” into “no, no, no!” Well, move over, Santa, cause there’s a new efficient gift giver in town (i.e., you!)
Cross everyone off your list with the help of Think Dirty’s carefully curated 2022 holiday gift guide that has something for everyone. It’s overflowing with gift ideas in clean beauty, as well as clean skincare and household products. So settle down, skip the long lineups in the stores (and crowded parking lots), and start shopping from the comfort of your couch!

PiperWai Natural Deodorant Cream — $13 USD
Absorb moisture and prevent underarm odour with the creamy Natural Deodorant Cream, made with activated charcoal, shea butter and coconut oil. No aluminum here! A pea-sized dollop scooped out of the tub made of recycled ocean waste plastic (OWP) is all your gift recipient needs to apply to his or her armpits. And you both can feel good about it: Using OWP reduces CO2 emissions by 60 percent, and removes 10 plastic bags from the ocean, which keeps marine life safe and happy.
Viori Hidden Waterfall Shampoo Bar — $18 USD
Almost too pretty to use, but your gift recipients will be glad they did. Viori’s shampoo bar is great for all hair types, handcrafted with Longsheng rice, cocoa butter, aloe vera, and bamboo to cleanse, moisturize, and strengthen their hair and leave it with a musky, sweet vanilla scent that’s reminiscent of the forested paths that lead to the Longsheng waterfalls in China.
Viori Hidden Waterfall Conditioner Bar — $18 USD
Pair Viori’s shampoo bar with its conditioner bar, best for normal to oil hair. It’s been crafted to renew, rejuvenate and repair hair with ingredients that include shea butter, cocoa butter, Longsheng rice water, rice bran oil, broccoli seed oil, and vitamins B5 and B8. Result? Soft, shiny, musky vanilla-scented locks your gift recipient may not be able to stop tossing around.
Kind Laundry Laundry Detergent Sheets — $19.95 USD
Clean laundry sheets with accolades! Oprah’s Favorite “Sustainable Laundry Detergent” and winner of Better Homes & Garden’s Best Eco-Friendly Laundry Detergent Award of 2021 is super easy to use: just throw a sheet into the washer with dirty clothes. The best part? The laundry sheets are made with simple plant-derived ingredients that do the job even in cold water. We also love these sheets because they’re lightweight and travel-friendly!

EpiLynx Nourishing Face Moisturizer For Very Dry Skin — $29 USD
Skin that’s very dry, sensitive, or prone to psoriasis, eczema, or rosacea, rejoice: EpiLynx’s Think Dirty-verified “milky” and vegan moisturizer will calm and soothe inflammation, and provide up to 48 hours of hydration, thanks to ingredients that include ashwagandha, neem oil, sea buckthorn oil, borage seed oil, aloe vera gel, and helichrysum extract baobab protein. (That last one is a water-soluble extract that comes from the African baobab tree, which is also known as the “Tree of Life.”)
EpiLynx Gentle Face Cleanser — Hydrating Facial — $29 USD
Something about foaming apple, cucumber seed oil, and Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice just sounds soothing, right? Find these natural ingredients, as well as other antioxidants, in the Think Dirty-verified vegan face cleanser/face wash that will leave your loved one’s skin silky and hydrated, especially if it’s dry, stressed, or sensitive.

Gaia Bare Care Bare Skin Goddess Trio — $47 USD
Good things happen in threes, especially when they include organic, plant-based ingredients! The Bare Skin Goddess Trio includes the Epilixir Ingrown Oil Wax & Shave Aftercare, She’s Goddess Daily Cleanse Bar, and the choice of one Exfoliant Bar: Grit Rid of It, or Gritty Goddess. Your loved one can treat and prevent ingrown hairs, the appearance of “chicken skin,” and those small, dark spots on her legs after she shaves that look like the seeds on the skin of a strawberry (“strawberry skin.”)

Primal Life Organics Real White Dental Boost—$59 USD
If you have a buddy who likes the look of a bright, white smile but is sensitive to whitening agents, give him something to smile about. Primal Life Organic’s concentrated paste is made with nano-hydroxyapatite mineral to whiten and strengthen teeth and reduce sensitivity.

It’s a great product for whitening on the go!
Alchimie Forever Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask — $60 USD
What do you get when you combine softening oats and soothing wild pansies with anti-aging resveratrol from grape extracts and redness-reducing European blueberry?

No harsh cleaning-product smell afterward, either — this kit is fragrance-free.
