Miranda Kerr is passionate about many things. Mom, supermodel, entrepreneur, and nature child, a quick perusal of her Instagram will give you insight into a few of her favorite things—sun, wellness, florals—typically nestled in between glossy editorial photos of the supermodel doing what she does best—serving. On Kerr’s off-duty days, her scenes are often set against a breathtaking backdrop of lush greenery and still waters, with the sun’s speckled reflection beaming off the model’s sculpted cheekbones.
Of course, a nutrient-rich beauty routine (from head to toe) and wellness rituals are paramount for the model, whose brand, Kora Organics, marries those two passions together. If Santa were a five-foot-nine Australian supermodel, everyone would receive the gift of wellness. So it comes as no surprise that it’s that same synergy Kerr references for her holiday season gift shopping. If ever there was a person to trust with nailing down the perfect gift for the beauty buff in your life, who better than the walking glow filter herself? Scroll down for the supermodel’s guide to self-care gifting this holiday season.
My holiday gifting tip is…
to tailor each gift to the person you’re giving it to. Think about their lifestyle, passions, and hobbies—it makes the gift that much more personable and meaningful.
For the beauty lover:
KORA Organics Turmeric Glow Collection, $62
Gone are the days of a maximalist skincare routine. Thanks to this trio, you’re just three short steps away from Kerr’s signature glow. Gently wash away any oil and dirt with the Turmeric Foaming Cleanser, an antioxidant-rich formula that cocktails turmeric, noni, aloe, and more to set the stage for the next steps: masking and moisture. All three bestsellers brighten and rejuvenate the skin with ease.
Kerr says: “This is the perfect set I would give to any beauty or skincare lover. The kit includes a trio of KORA’s best-selling Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask, Turmeric Glow Moisturizer, and Turmeric Glow Foaming Cleanser for glowing, healthy skin.”
For the busy mom:
The Sculpt Society Subscription, $179 annually
Life during the pandemic sparked an interest in at-home workouts, but returning to a somewhat normal post-lockdown life doesn’t mean the virtual fun has to stop. Megan Roup, the founder of The Sculpt Society, keeps you moving even when you feel like giving up with dance-based cardio workouts (fun fact: she used to dance for the Brooklyn Nets), sans the shame or fear many people feel as they step inside a gym’s doors. TSS meets you where you’re at in your fitness journey with target programs for moms (TSS Mama), to fitness obsessives, and every level in between.
Kerr says: “This is the best gift for the fitness enthusiast or a busy mom, and Megan Roup’s program is such a fun and easy way to get moving, no matter where you are. I’ve learned how to incorporate Megan’s quickie workouts into my busy mom/work life. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming to dedicate a full hour to working out when you’re so busy, which is why I love the short quickie option. You really feel like you are getting such great results and can do it in little 15 to 20-minute increments throughout the day.”
For the techie:
Oura Ring, $499
Fitness gadgets aren’t always the most flattering and are often bulky in design and noticeable. Good thing no one will be able to tell you’re tracking your fitness goals with an Oura Ring on. The fitness brand has a sleek design wrapped in five different shades—black, silver, stealth, rose gold, and yellow—to match any lifestyle.
Kerr says: “Perfect for the tech and wellness lover; this tracks everything! It tracks your sleep and it’s so good to make sure you’ve done your steps for the day. Plus, it even inspires you to get to bed earlier—it’s a good motivator.”
My personal wishlist gift is…
art from my three sons.
“It is so special to me when my children make me something. I love framing their art and displaying it around the house because it adds so much life to our home. The kids are very much into arts and crafts, and Flynn especially loves drawing. He has such attention to detail and is a true artist.”
