The countdown to Christmas is well underway, but Christmas came early for Latin superstar Becky G. It all started with the singer notching a spot on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list and tearfully announcing her achievement on Instagram. Then, a few weeks later, saying “Yes” to her now-fiance (soccer player Sebastian Lletget) under a hazy sunset in LA.
With so much love and happiness in the air, the holidays at Becky G’s house will undoubtedly feel like a heartfelt Hallmark Christmas rom-com. She has a successful career and the romance of her dreams—all that remains are the mountain of gifts, right?
In the spirit of holiday cheer, Becky G gave us a glimpse of what she’s buying loved ones this Christmas season.
My holiday gifting tip is…
BEING PRESENT—that is truly the greatest gift anyone can give. Being intentional about how we connect with loved ones, even strangers, this holiday season can change lives. Kindness and a smile are priceless.
For the beauty star:
Treslúce Beauty Midnight Deseos, $35
Becky G has always experimented with her makeup looks, but a smoldering toasty neutral eye is her go-to look. This palette was tailor-made for those who prefer natural, soft glam with pops of shimmer. Choose from 18 shades that run the gamut, from earth-toned mattes to metallics to light neutrals.
Becky says: “I’m not just saying this because I created it, but our Treslúce Beauty Midnight Deseos limited-edition shadow palette is a makeup must-have. From one beauty lover to another, I HIGHLY recommend it.”
For the Pinterest quote lover:
Rupi Kaur Milk and Honey, $14.99
At some point in your Twitter scroll, you’ve come across a quote from Rupi Kaur, or an image of a page culled from one of her bestselling books. The bestselling poet has published several books throughout her career, but Milk and Honey—her first self-published poetry collection—is the best place to start.
Becky says: Depending on how well you know the person & their interests, book gifting is always nice! It doesn’t have to cost much but can be very thoughtful. Rupi Kaur has some amazing poetry books.
For the natural beauty hoarder:
Lé Trois Apothecary Winter Solstice Ritual Cleanser, $18
Traveling the world as a Latin superstar can be exhausting, but Becky G always has a piece of Inglewood in her luggage. This cleanser is made by a QWOC LA-based apothecary on a mission to make relaxation and healing accessible for all.
Becky says: “Good energy is essential and makes a great gift! Lé Trois Apothecary is a small business based in Los Angeles. Their ritual cleanser No.1: Release comes with me everywhere I go! I also love their crystal burners. They have so many great things. I highly recommend making a care package from your favorite local business for your loved ones.
My personal wishlist gift is…
I truly can’t think of anything I could want. I am beyond blessed. If I had to choose, maybe a gift card to The Container Store so I can continue organizing my house.
