As gender fluidity fills through our culture and more and more people are beginning to blur the old school boundaries of binary gender identity, I’ve been seeing so many amazing gender-neutral brands emerging in both the fashion and beauty spaces. A lot of them offer gender-inclusive products that make wonderful gifts this holiday season!
Read on to see some of my personal favorites that I’ve come across so far.
Founded by celebrity makeup artist Dillon Peña, Leland Francis is a luxury natural beauty brand that offers vegan skincare products free of fillers and fragrances. Everything is handmade and formulated in the United States. The skincare line is gender-neutral and designed to be suitable for all skin types. The multi-purpose Melting Balm that works as a cleanser, mask, as well as an overnight balm, or the non-toxic Luxe Face Oil that helps minimize fine lines are wonderful gift options.

The NYC-based luxury leather accessories brand Jeff Wan created a collection of chic reversible wrap bracelets that are designed for both men and women. The bracelet comes in 4 sizes — XS, S, M, and L — and is available in 13 different color combinations. Priced at $65 each, the bracelets make a great gift option for couples.

This cult-favorite line of clean, multi-purpose products, founded by two co-founders, Emily and Oliver, are designed for all genders. They place the focus on — skin! Their highly-rated Golden Hour Recover Cream is a hydrating moisturizer suitable for all skin types. It’s rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and E, and essential fatty acids like omega 3, 6, 7, and 9 oils.
This catch-all case has five interior drop-in pockets that make organizing small things so much easier. Snap it down for compact travel or roll it back for easy access. The best part? It’s made of 100% recycled polyester (from recycled plastic bottles to be exact!) with a water-resistant finish. The color options are very gender-neutral, making them suitable to gift anyone.
KOTN is an ethical clothing brand that uses fine natural fibers to make quality wardrobe staples for both men and women. The comfortable sweatshirts are my personal favorite. I gifted my cousin and her husband matching sweatshirts for their wedding anniversary and they both loved it! The sweatshirts come in a variety of colors and styles, with many unisex options available.
Sustainable cashmere brand Naadam makes quality gender-neutral winter accessories, including beanies, gloves, and scarves. The soft and warm scarves are made of 100% Mongolian cashmere and come in 10 different colors.
This rich, woody unisex fragrance is a signature Le Labo perfume designed for both men and women. It features leathery, musky notes that mimic the soft drift of smoke. It's a great "warm" scent to gift during the holiday season.
Away's tiniest "suitcase" is made with the same durable aluminum shell as their Aluminum Edition suitcases, but downsized to safe-keep small travel essentials, toiletries, and other personal belongings. My husband and I both each have the Mini in black and white, and we love ours!
Founded in New York City, Aerangis is a luxury home fragrance brand offering a collection of quality scented candles. The brand now offers 2 different gift sets, priced just below $100, that come with a complimentary wick trimmer. The beautiful reusable candle jars are tastefully designed for any chic home.
This Italian slow fashion brand, Marta Scarampi, offers a sustainble collection of handmade pieces made of the ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon fiber made from recycled fishnets and other nylon waste. The collection includes a set of 2 unisex face masks that are waterproof and machine-washable.
