There’s a slight chill in the air, red and green ornaments aplumb, and twinkly light-strewn streets — all signs that the holidays are here! As the holiday gifting extravaganza begins, we’re kicking off the season with our annual milk + honey gift guide. Here, you’ll find the perfect present for her, him, your parents, under $150, and even luxurious presents for yourself!
We gave thanks on Thursday, we shopped on Brown Amber Saturday, and now it’s time to give back. On Giving Tuesday, we donate our time, money, and our voices to important organizations that help improve our community. From food banks to animal shelters, these are some of our favorite local organizations.
It’s time to indulge your champagne wishes and caviar dreams with Sugarfina candy. This luxurious candy brand features gummy bears, malts, dark chocolates, and other sweet treats from artisan candy makers across the world.

Let’s meet these sweet treats…
Our best-selling blend — No. 46, a mix of sandalwood, vetiver, and cardamom — is now available as a cream deodorant. Like all of our deodorants, it is 100% aluminum-free, plant-based, effective, and keeps you feeling fresh all day long.
Baking soda eliminates odor-causing bacteria, while organic arrow root powder absorbs wetness to keep you dry. Together, this powerful duo allows your body to sweat and release toxins. Unlike traditional petroleum-based deodorants, which can cause skin irritation, Cream Deodorant No. 46 has a soothing combination of organic coconut oil, shea fruit butter, and beeswax to calm and moisturize, allowing your skin to breathe. The exotic blend of organic sandalwood, vetiver, and cardamom essential oils not only relaxes the senses but are also natural antibacterial agents.
Winter is coming. While winter in Texas is relatively mild, your skin still feels the effects of the change in climate. In fact, many of us may start to notice our skin becoming tighter, itchier, and rougher — the tale-tale signs of winter skin. That’s where Baudelaire body brushes come in handy.
Blondes, brunettes, redheads, and now pastels? If you’ve checked Pinterest, Twitter, or Instagram, you’ll notice you that the pastel hair craze is becoming more and more popular. Our Hill Country Galleria manager, Rhianon, decided to take on this trend and try dusky rosegold hair! With our talented stylist, Tanya F. at the helm, she was able to go from blonde to the perfect shade of pastel pink.
You’ve got your cleanser, toner, your favorite serums, but your skincare routine is missing something big… Well, actually, it’s quite small: FOREO’s Luna mini. With 8,000 sonic pulsations per minute, this facial brush is essential to achieving brighter, clearer, and healthier skin. To help you make the most of your LUNA mini, we asked our 2nd Street District assistant manager, Jen, to show us how she uses her LUNA mini.
Bright, bold, and deep cleansing, FOREO is our new innovative beauty product available at all milk + honey locations. These revolutionary facial brushes are a must-have for all skin types and pair great with your OSEA or CosMedix skincare routine.
Founded in 2013, this Swedish-based company has been impacting the beauty industry with its products since its inception. In fact, for the last three years, FOREO has been racking up all kinds of awards: Best New Beauty Breakthrough from the Beauty Shortlist, Harpers Bazaar Best of the Best Awards, and NYLON’s 2015 Beauty Hit List to name a few.
Let’s meet the brushes…
Strobing. It’s not a new dance move or new millennial saying — it’s actually refers to contouring’s dramatically simpler sister. Curious? Youngblood’s Illuminating Palette provides an easy way to get in on the trend. Developed with six unique highlighting shades, this palette is perfect for all types of skin tones.
Let’s learn how to strobe.
Magenta, periwinkle, and lilac are no longer just crayon colors. The bright shades are now part of a new hair “movement” — the multicolor hair trend. Similar to creating dimensional blondes or brunettes, our 2nd Street District stylist, Jess, uses pinks, purples, and reds to transform her client Nora from a pastel blonde to a bright pink mermaid.
