With the holiday season upon us and the long months of January and February on the horizon, we’ve curated some of our favorite things to enjoy during the holidays and well into 2023. After all, joy doesn’t begin in December and end at the cusp of January! Here are six L’AVANT Collective go-to’s to get you outside, keep you organized, help you practice self-care, win the best-guest-ever distinction, and keep lips kissably soft, all year long. 

Cheers to a (new) year of JOY! 

Cloth bag with 2022 tag on it

Funboy Midnight Racer Snowmobile Sled- $99

Surprise someone special with a gift of spontaneity and joy. Ride in style on the bunny hills with this sleek houndstooth snowmobile and bring it back out in the summer for an Insta-ready float. Bonus? Houndstooth is always in style. 

Mali and Lili Estelle Organizational Tote $88 

This is THE bag! This tote is great for anyone and any occasion: Teachers, sister, mom, or even throwing a curve-ball for your “white elephant” party (something to fight over!). It fits all the essentials, lives up to its “organizational tote” name—no more hunting for your keys— and has the added bonus of being vegan leather. It’s no secret that we at L’AVANT love beautiful and functional design, and this bags ticks all the boxes. 

Kari Gran: Essential Serum, $65

Packed with vitamins, this silky Essential Serum is a hydration savior. With a blend of 15 plant and essential oils, this speaks to our motto of clean, luxurious living. So good we want to share with everyone! 

Josh Rosebrook: Nourish Lift Trio, $85 

We love Josh Rosebrook for his clean, effective, and thoughtfully formulated skincare. This rich natural hair care trio gives nourishment, moisture and balance to all hair types with a beautiful formulation that uses plant power, essential oils, and is made in the USA. Let the divine spa-like scent and luxurious feel of this shampoo, conditioner, and volumizing root spray elevate an everyday experience for you, or any of your loved ones. 

Hello Robin Cookies: The Classic Chocolate Chip; $24 for a dozen, $17 for bake at home

Who doesn’t love a cookie?! And when it’s done right, you usually end up having more than one. That’s why these Hello Robin cookies make the ideal host or hostess gift. Come bearing a little sugar to win over everyone. We suggest bringing a pint of ice cream, too! 

Rel No Duh Essential Lip Balm in Frick Yes $16 

No matter what time of year, soft, moisturized lips are a must-have. This plant-based lip balm delivers conditioning relief for dry lips with just a touch of tint and shine—so good, you’ll want one in every pocket! For a go-to shade you’ll wonder why you didn’t discover sooner, check out  “Frick Yes,” a blush nude that looks great on everyone.
