Over the years, few brands have won the hearts of our editors like Burt's Bees. Ask anyone on the Well+Good team for their top drugstore brands, and Burt's Bees is sure to be one of them. Why? It's consistent, it's affordable, and it's a goldmine for high-quality beauty and wellness products that actually work.

That's why, come gifting season, Burt's Bees is something you'll always find on our editor's shopping lists. This year, the brand has launched some stellar limited edition kits and customizable products that have our editors swooning over their creativity and convenience. Other editors are gifting favorite products that you can find throughout the year, but deserve a place under everyone's tree nonetheless. Whether it's stocking stuffers, full-blown skin-care kits, or last minute White Elephant gifts, Burt's Bees really has something for everyone—even those hard-to-impress friends and family. Below, the gifts we're giving our hives this year that are worth a spot on your shopping list.

The Burt's Bees products we're gifting this year (that you should, too) 

New Mama Bundle — $40.00

For new and expecting mothers, this gift is a treat. “My best friend is about to have a baby, and you better believe this gift set will be showing up on her doorstep,” says Zoe Weiner, W+G senior beauty editor. “I love that it has treats for both mom and babe, which will hopefully make her life easier—and more relaxing—during those first few months of sleepless nights.”

Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream — $6.00

Gina Vaynshteyn, W+G senior commerce editor, says this lemony cream makes for an easy stocking stuffer.

“I’ve been using this cuticle cream since I was in middle school—truly, the lemon butter scent brings. me. back,” she says. “As a part of my weekend self-care routine, I do my nails, so to keep my cuticles soft and nails from getting brittle, I use this stuff constantly. I’ve never experienced a chip, and my nails always look freshly done.”


Limited-Edition Holiday Lip Surprise Gift — $20.00

“Some of my favorite childhood Christmas memories were opening an advent calendar and seeing what as behind each tiny door,” says W+G beauty writer, Kara Brown “This set brings up some of this nostalgia on a scaled down version, allowing your gift-ee to enjoy five mini surprises.” Those surprises? A Beeswax Lip Balm, Pomegranate Lip Balm, Fig Lip Shimmer, Overnight Lip Treatment, and the Rose Tinted Lip Balm.

Kissable Color Warm Collection Gift — $10.00

If you’re on my shopping list, chances are you’re getting this lip trio. I’m not much of a lipstick gal, which is why I love these shimmery lip balms that give a kiss (pun intended) of color without overdoing it and that signature mint tingle. For those gift-ees who prefer warmer shades, they have a kit of warm tones, too.

Essential Burt's Bees Kit Gift — $10.00

Have that friend that’s hard to please? Saanya Ali, W+G editorial projects associate, recommends this back-to-basics gift. “Everyone has that one hard to shop for gift-ee on their list. The Burt’s Bees’ essentials kit makes it easy,” she says. “I love it because it has the perfect combo of travel sized essentials for an on the go holiday season and the milk and honey body lotion smells divine.”

Sensitive Facial Cleanser — $10.00

Ali Finney, W+G deputy editor of brand initiatives, loves this $10 cleanser thanks to wonders its worked on her skin.

“Not only is it good at nixxing the most stubborn mascara that likes to park it below my eyes, it’s also is like an old-fashioned cold cream in that it douses your skin with moisture rather than stripping it of natural oils,” she says. “What’s more, because it’s made with sensitive skin types in mind, it’s a pretty no-fail option to gift in a stocking stuffer or take to a White Elephant party.”

Grooming Essentials Kit For Men

“My boyfriend has been begging me to put together a skin-care routine for him (the perks of dating a beauty editor, I guess!), and I’m so excited to surprise him with this one,” Weiner says. “It offers all of the essentials—a face wash, a shaving cream, a moisturizer, and a lip balm—and makes it very clear how each step in the routine should be used. Plus, the packaging is super chic, which means it will look right at home next to the dozen-plus skin-care products of my own that I’ve migrated into his bathroom.”

9-Pack Lip Balm Holiday Gift Set — $26.00

Finally, I’m getting myself this lip balm set. Why? Because I am one of those people who can’t keep a lip balm to save her life. This set comes with nine flavors including tried-and-true Burt’s Bees’ flavors, like pomegranate, vanilla bean, and coconut pear.
