By: Erica Choi
Live from New York, it's another holiday gift guide! Because the more the merrier! And we're sure you're probably still stressing about what to get someone for the holidays that is the exact right amount of appropriate, yet thoughtful! We spoke with an absolute aesthetic queen whose taste is not only impeccable, but also makes us want to purchase these gifts for ourselves (oopsies). Her name is Erica Choi (you may know her as @eggcanvas), and she is here to drop some very fervently needed gift ideas for those of us who need inspiration most at this crucial time. Erica, plz go off!
Hi! My name is Erica Choi, and I am an NYC-based Creative Consultant, Esthetician, and Founder of SUPEREGG. SUPEREGG is my newly hatched baby – a clean and vegan skincare brand supported by powerful plant-based and cruelty-free beauty formulas. This holiday season, I’m gifting my loved ones everyday luxuries that can bring comfort, ease, and wellness into their daily lives.
For the co-worker who has an amazing handle on damage control
HYPERFADE does a great job at helping to brighten residual dark spot's appearance after a pustule has gone. Each little patch is layered with 24 self-dissolving micro-darts that melt within 2 hours of application. You can see visible brightening after a night’s rest.
For the sister with a dedicated skincare routine
Sound Renewal is like a blanket of nutrients for your skin. As a nourishing gel-cream of high-performing botanical extracts and antioxidants, it renews the skin to a dewy, radiant complexion. The pleasing circular shape of the packaging also fits perfectly in your hand (and on your vanity!).
For the cousin who skips brunch and sleeps in until noon
If you spend 1⁄3 of your life sleeping, I say make it the most comfortable and luxurious experience possible. Asceno’s camisole top and sleep shorts are also perfect for when applying your skincare routine or lounging around the apartment. Made of Asceno’s signature sand-washed silk, these pieces are absolute heaven and they come in the most beautiful shades.
For the wanderlust friend who is due for a trip to Tokyo
Matcha from Ippodo is the gold standard. Ummon from their collection has a powerful umami flavor, deep emerald green color, and sweet aroma. Combine it with oat milk, and you can make the best matcha latte on your block.
For the aunt who is a modern home decor aficionado
Trudon scents are absolutely delightful, and the L’Œuf is such a beautiful nod to the egg.
For the mom who makes her home, the spa
The ZIIP is one of the few beauty devices with the ability to show immediate results with its innovative technology. It’s basically a workout for your face and is truly effortless to integrate into your self-care rituals throughout the week.
