Whether you're in search of the perfect gift for the beauty junkie in your life or you just want to snag something special for yourself this season, we've got the plug.

Below, 10 gifts from Caribbean-owned businesses, TSD hopes will bring your loved ones joy and happiness this season. Plus, like last week, we've added a likkle brawta!

1. FENTY SKIN by Rihanna Fenty Skin Start'rs Full-Size Bundle [ @fentyskin]

Kick-start your 2021 #SkinGoals with the Fenty Skin Start'rs Full-Size Bundle. It's touted as Rihanna's go-to routine for glowing skin and requires three simple steps: Cleanse, tone and hydrate.

2. Ital Rejuve Jamaican Black Castor Oil [ @italrejuve]

Bad hair days are one of the things we're leaving in 2020! Our 2021 hair goals: Thick, lustrous hair that makes everyone green with envy! This Jamaican Black Castor Oil, blended by pharmacist Kimberley Forbes, is the ideal gift for anyone who wants to have hair like a dream.

3. Yardie Cosmetics Chups Liquid Lipstick [ @yardiecosmetics]

These days there are two type of mask-wearers: Those who have given up make-up all together, and those who are still about the glam. If you know someone who sounds like the latter, then do them a favour and add this festive red liquid lipstick to their make-up bag. It's uber-bright and perfectly captures the holiday spirit. Best of all, it goes on as a liquid, then dries down to a matte finish that promises not to smudge!

4. REAL Soap [ @realsoap_caribbean]

As the end of the year draws nigh, the world is still observing COVID-19 protocols of washing hands with soap frequently. Problem is finding a soap that ticks all the boxes: Robust cleansing abilities, great lather, anti-bacterial, lightly scented and moisturising. No worries, it's time to get REAL! 100% Caribbean REAL! TSD recommends REAL soap, a line crafted in Dominica with coconut oil from Guyana and Jamaican sea salt, then packaged in cartons from St Lucia and wrappers made in Trinidad. Whether it be the Aloe & Glycerine, Turmeric & Tea Tree Oil, or the Vitamin E & Coconut oil, REAL soap has the perfect bar to suit your needs.

5. Skin Positivity Black Seed + Avocado Face Serum by Marianna's Kitchen

The Black Seed + Avocado Face Serum promises a lot with its antiviral and antifungal properties, fatty acids which nourish, keeping skin supple and hydrated, and its amazing minerals and vitamin content.
