Healthline only shows you brands and products that we stand behind.Our team thoroughly researches and evaluates the recommendations we make on our site. To establish that the product manufacturers addressed safety and efficacy standards, we:
- Evaluate ingredients and composition: Do they have the potential to cause harm?
- Fact-check all health claims: Do they align with the current body of scientific evidence?
- Assess the brand: Does it operate with integrity and adhere to industry best practices?
Celebrities — though their big or small-screen presence can often seem larger than life, really, they’re folks who enjoy nice things just like the rest of us.
With that in mind, there is something to be said for a celebrity endorsement of a product, especially if it feels honest (or if they have some stake in the game). And with the holidays swiftly approaching, gift ideas with some extra clout can be welcome.

For the athlete
- Celeb endorsement: Cody Rigsby, DeAndre Hopkins, Cristiano Ronaldo
- Price: $$$$
What do Peloton’s Cody Rigsby, the Arizona Cardinals’ DeAndre Hopkins, and soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo all have in common? They’re all brand ambassadors for Therabody, the company that created the popular percussion massager Theragun.
The Theragun Mini is the most gift-worthy (and budget-friendly) of the Theragun line. It’s more compact than the other models — hence the name — but still comes equipped with three speed settings and 150 minutes of battery life from a full charge.
Reviewers love that the Theragun Mini is quieter than the larger models and still delivers that hurts-so-good percussive massage that many folks have come to love. One reviewer sums it up nicely: “Perfect size to hold comfortably and soft to the touch, making it easy to use. Does a fantastic job breaking up knots in muscles. The quality is unbeatable.”
For the friend who needs some zen
- Celeb endorsement: Harry Styles, Idris Elba, LeBron James, Laura Dern, Regé-Jean Page (the list goes on!)
- Price: $$ (subscription)
Meditation has gone mainstream, and we’re not mad about it! As if meditation apps haven’t already made meditation more accessible, Calm has a slew of celebrity-narrated stories to encourage relaxation or help you drift to sleep.
In the app, you can listen to a bedtime story read by soothing celeb voices like Idris Elba, Cynthia Erivo, Harry Styles, and Laura Dern. Or, if you’re looking for a little inspiration, LeBron James and Matthew McConaughey have plenty to share.
The gift of meditation is an awesome pick for anyone in your life, but Calm is also great for parents, as there’s a ton of kid-friendly material on the platform. Beyond guided meditations, there are stories, soundscapes, masterclasses, and guided movement videos.
You can find out what a few Healthline editors think of Calm by reading our full review.
For the bookworm
Reese’s Book Club Box
- Celeb endorsement: Reese Witherspoon
- Price: $
If you’ve ever listened to an interview with her, you know that Reese Witherspoon loves to read. Reese’s Book Club uses an app to spotlight a book each month, and every book has a female character at the center of the story.
However, you don’t need to be in the club to make this an awesome gift for the bookworm in your life. You can craft a one-off box with the Reese-recommended read (say that five times fast) of your choice, and a few extra custom goodies like a bandana, chocolate, and fuzzy socks.
Reese’s Book Club has a ton of fans — over 2.4 million on Instagram to be exact. Instagram is also a great way to see which of Reese’s favorite books are being turned into films or TV shows through her production company Hello Sunshine.
For the loungewear lover
- Celeb endorsement: Lizzo and Kate Hudson
- Price: $$
When she’s not tearing up the flute during one of her concerts, Lizzo has been hard at work on a new endeavor: a size-inclusive shapewear and loungewear brand called YITTY. The brand lives under Kate Hudson’s Fabletics and has size options ranging from XS to 6X.
You’ll find plenty of underwear and bodysuits on the site, but we think the most gift-able choice for any Lizzo fan is this cozy Major Label EP hoodie that comes in seven different color options.
While Fabletics is typically a membership-based brand, you can buy this hoodie without one. Reviewers love it, saying, “High quality material, very soft, and comfortable. Flattering style, and I like showing my love for Lizzo by wearing it!”
For that sparkly someone
Serena Williams Jewelry Starburst Stud Earrings
- Celeb endorsement: Serena Williams
- Price: $$$$
As if being the GOAT of tennis wasn’t enough, Serena Williams also started her own clothing and jewelry line! Her jewelry company (Serena Williams Jewelry, of course) uses ethically sourced diamonds and metals, and crafts their pieces in a facility certified by the Responsible Jewelry Council.
With 10K white gold and pavé diamonds, these Starburst Stud earrings are a great gift for any Serena fan — or any fan of sparkles for that matter.
For the host with the most
Betty Buzz Tonic
- Celeb endorsement: Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively
- Price: $$
Easily one of Hollywood’s most beloved power couples, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are pretty much unstoppable these days. In addition to being actors, owners of Welsh football club Wrexham AFC, and generous donors of all sorts of organizations, the two also own their own beverage companies.
Lively’s new collection of naturally flavored mixers and tonics, Betty Buzz, which also happens to be branded with an aviation theme (ugh, could you two be any cuter?) offers a range of flavors for those who love a little extra sizzle in their sip.
We’ve actually tried Betty Buzz and the flavors and bubbles are top-notch. This beverage makes a festive gift for anyone who loves entertaining.
For the master chef
HexClad Starter Bundle
- Celeb endorsement: Gordon Ramsay
- Price: $$$$
Whether you love him or hate him (or are just plain scared of him), there’s no denying that Gordon Ramsay is one of the most noteworthy chefs of this century. We received high recs for HexClad, Ramsay’s cookware brand, which is nontoxic, nonstick, induction-friendly, and even dishwasher safe!
For the master chef in your life, this HexClad Starter Bundle is a great way to elevate their kitchen to cook like the pros. It includes an 8-inch pan and 1-quart pot and, while pricey, the brand seems to live up to their nonstick, even-cooking claims.
One reviewer says, “The functionality of the cookware is the best I’ve experienced. Food does not stick and very easy to clean. In fact I find the pans inspiring me to cook more.”
For the coffee snob
Nespresso VertuoPlus Starter Kit
- Celeb endorsement: George Clooney
- Price: $$$$
The dashing George Clooney has been the face of Nespresso for years, and that doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon. As he seems to be someone with very nice taste, we’ll go ahead and trust his judgment.
Nespresso’s newer VertuoPlus not only makes a smooth cuppa joe or espresso, but it also looks great on the kitchen counter. And in addition to the sleek matte machine, this starter pack includes two starter packs of coffee pods, a dispenser, and two small mugs.
For the person in your life who loves their daily brew, the gift of coffee will definitely not disappoint — especially when it takes less than 5 minutes to brew. And, with over 2,000 reviews on Nespresso’s website, people are huge fans of this machine.
For the health nut
Jem Organics Cinnamon Maca Almond Butter
- Celeb endorsement: Brie Larson
- Price: $
Brie Larson is typically seen zipping around as Captain Marvel or behind the wheel in a Nissan commercial. But if you follow her on Instagram, you know she throws a lot of unsponsored love at products she adores. One example is this Cinnamon Maca Almond Butter from Jem Organics, which she snapped a photo with and captioned “non spon, I’m just genuinely obsessed.”
This almond butter is packed with U.S. Department of Agriculture certified organic almonds, cinnamon, maca, vanilla, and coconut sugar for a little sweetness. Larson isn’t alone in her love for this nut butter by a long shot. One reviewer (out of many happy customers) says, “It is the best nut butter I’ve ever had (and I’ve tried almost all of them on the market). Jem has a premium quality, texture, and amazing flavor.”
With reviews like that, we think it would make a great addition to a gift basket for a teacher or a stocking stuffer for the foodie in your life.
For the skin care savvy
Fenty Skin Start’r Set
- Celeb endorsement: Rihanna
- Price: $
As the youngest self-made female billionaire, Rihanna is pretty much set in the money department. But, with Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin, her skin tone-inclusive, environmentally conscious makeup and skin care line, we feel OK about giving her a few more of our dollars.
People have fallen head over heels for Fenty since the brand exploded on the scene in 2017. And for anyone wanting to get to know the brand, this travel-sized set from Fenty Skin is a great place to start.
While skin care is different for everyone, the Total Cleans’r, Fat Water toner, and Hydra Vizor SPF moisturizer are a hit, with most of the over 11,000 reviews on the Fenty website. One person writes, “This product not only smells amazing but also feels amazing on your face. It’s lightweight and is very moisturizing.”

For the makeup maven
Rare Beauty Discovery Eyeshadow Palette
- Celeb endorsement: Selena Gomez
- Price: $
Whether she’s sleuthing around on the TV show “Only Murders in the Building” or sharing her vocals on a track, Selena Gomez always looks incredible. Luckily, she’s decided to share her tricks with the rest of us through her makeup line, Rare Beauty.
With seven vegan, cruelty-free, and dermatologist-tested shades, her Came to Play eyeshadow palette is a fun gift for anyone who likes to add a pop of color to their look.
Folks love this palette, with one reviewer saying, “It’s so beautifully packaged, the quality is great, the pigment was incredible, and it’s smooth and easy to apply.”
We’ve also tried a few Rare Beauty products ourselves, and adored the blush. Something else to love? Proceeds from each Rare Beauty purchase go toward Rare Impact, which helps people access mental health resources. The gift that keeps on giving!
For the cosmetically curious
SolaWave Red Light Therapy Wand
- Celeb endorsement: Rosario Dawson, Lil Nas X, Joey King, Sydney Sweeney
- Price: $$$$
Celebs like Rosario Dawson, Joey King, Sydney Sweeney, and Lil Nas X (just to name a few!) are fans of the SolaWave Red Light Therapy Wand. It uses micro currents and red light to provide a warming, therapeutic massage for your face and neck, which SolaWave says helps depuff and energize skin when used three times per week.
While there’s still a lot to learn about red light therapy, research suggests it’s beneficial for
For the jet-setter
Béis Travel Cosmetic Case
- Celeb endorsement: Shay Mitchell
- Price: $$
For anyone who likes to “shay-cation” like actor and entrepreneur Shay Mitchell, this travel cosmetic case from her company Béis makes a great gift. It comes in beige and black, and has a pocket for your brushes, an easy-to-clean faux leather outer, and a handy travel mirror.
With over 2,000 reviews on the Béis website, people really love this case. One reviewer sums up most of the feedback by saying, “I really like this bag! It’s bigger than I thought, the detachable brush sleeve is genius, and the included mirror is a nice touch. It seems well made and sturdy, and I love that it holds its shape when tucked inside other large bags.”
The only common complaint is that there aren’t any dividers inside beyond the brush sleeve.
