Best Celeb Gifts to Buy

Nordstrom / Free People / Naghedi / Mejuri

We all have those friends and family members who seem impossible to shop for. Whether it's due to oddly specific hobbies or comments like, “I don’t need gifts," we know how challenging it can be to find a gift for them. But for anyone on your list who has an affinity for celebrities (and the things they buy), finding something that their favorite star has used and loved might be just what you need.

To help you out even more, we rounded up the most giftable products as seen on our favorite celebrities for you to gift your friends and family this holiday season. You can select from Kate Hudson and Oprah Winfrey’s favorite pearl earrings, Jessica Alba’s woven tote bag, Meghan Markle’s go-to lipstick, and more. And if you don’t see something you like off the back, don’t worry — we’ll be updating this story regularly, so check back to see what else we can find. 

Read on for what to buy.

The North Face 1996 Retro Nuptse Jacket


North Face

What do Hailey Bieber and Emily Ratajkowski have in common? Well, a lot of things, but most importantly, this jacket. Seen on both models, the puffer wins points for how warm and functional it is on top of being particularly stylish in a retro sort of way. We even crowned it the best puffer for warmth, so we promise it's good.

Nècessaire Eucalyptus Body Wash



Not only did we name this our best overall body wash for how well the formula works, but it also has Courteney Cox's stamp of approval. “With body wash, I don’t want it to have a scent that competes with my perfume, and the fragrance [in this] isn’t overpowering,” she explains. The refreshing eucalyptus scent will linger delicately on the skin without being too heavy. On the formula, Cox told us, “It makes you feel clean, and it looks good in the shower, too.”

BaubleBar Astro 18K Gold Necklace

Astro 18K Gold Necklace

As seen on Katie Holmes, this necklace from BaubleBar will delight any astrology fan. The double-sided necklace allows for versatility with a colorful front that displays all the birthstones at the center of the pendant. On the opposite side, a more neutral gold and diamond face makes it easy to match with everything in your closet.

Naghedi Jet Setter Small Tote

Jet Setter Small Tote

Jessica Alba called this woven neoprene tote from female-owned brand Naghedi “big enough to fit all the things and is from one of my fave female-founded small businesses that is great for everyday essentials." It will hold all of their necessities yet looks a touch more elevated than their usual schlepping tote.

Augustinus Bader The Cream

Augustinus Bader The Cream


Any celebrity with good skin must know a thing or two about what skincare products to use — and when they all use the same thing, that’s when you know it’s probably worthwhile. Priyanka Chopra, Jennifer Anison, Karen Elson, and Hailey Bieber all swear by this (yes, expensive) moisturizer from Augustinus Bader. It certainly will be a splurge but at the same time an excellent gift for anyone who wants skin like the stars.

Mejuri Organic Pearl Hoops

Mejuri Organic Pearl Hoops


Pearls had a major moment this year — and if you ask us, it’s still a thing. Layered with an 18k gold layer on sterling silver, this delicate pair from Mejuri features a freshwater pearl. Both Kate Hudson and Oprah Winfrey have been seen sporting the earrings. But many more celebrities love Mejuri pieces (we give you a rundown here) in case this pair isn’t quite speaking to you.

M. Gemi The Matilde Due

The Matilde Due

Gigi Hadid wears these M.Gemi slides as a more elevated version of Birkenstocks. The comfy leather will mold to your feet over time, especially because the buckles can be adjusted, while the cork sole and EVA bottom will ensure the shoe will feel lightweight as you walk around.

Alo Yoga Oversized Sherpa Trench

Alo Yoga Oversized Trench


But we also have our eye on this Katie Holmes' loved coat that always somehow sells out. Buy it (quickly) in camel, white, black, or a dusty rose for the person who revolves her entire outfit around her outerwear.

Free People Dolman Quilted Knit Jacket

Free People Dolman Quilted Knit Jacket

Another excellent layering piece beloved by Taylor Swift, Emma Roberts, Hilary Duff, and more, this slouchy jacket comes in 14 colors (so you can give it to more than one person) and can seamlessly integrate into any closet.

Spanx Booty Boost Active 7/8 Leggings

Spanx Booty Boost Active 7/8 Leggings


But if they prefer to lounge in leggings rather than work out, Jennifer Garner prefers this pair of booty-lifting leggings from Spanx, which has also been spotted on Reese Witherspoon and Kourtney Kardashian. They’ll make any recipient look and feel their best. We also suggest the Spanx faux leather leggings, which we named our best overall in that category.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury 

In case they prefer a bullet lipstick, instead of a liquid, Meghan Markle swears by Charlotte Tilbury, especially the shade Very Victoria, as does Amal Clooney. We also recommend gifting Megan Fox’s favorite Patrick Ta lipstick or the Gucci Lipstick Salma Hayek loves.

Nike Air Force 1 '07

NIKE Air Force 1 '07 Sneaker


And if they're not a runner, give them a pair of Air Force 1s, the Gen-Z-loved classic sneaker that comes recommended by Chloë and Halle Bailey. Opt for the all-white if they prefer a minimalist silhouette or spice it up a bit with colored accents, like gold or green.
