Help her get the best night of beauty sleep with this silk eye mask and pillowcase. Cotton can suck moisture from hair and skin, leaving it frizzy and dull. Silk, on the other hand, locks moisture in and won’t tug at hair or pull on skin, which prevents strands from breaking and fine lines from forming. The result: a more refreshed complexion and princess like vibes.

Fragrance is almost always a good idea (especially if you know what she likes), but one that can be used in multiple ways is even better. This whimsical scent of rose, foliage, and patchouli not only works on skin as a fragrance, but can also be spritzed into a load of laundry—in place of fabric softener—to scent linens and clothes.
