Come on, Barbie, let’s go party — and holiday shop while we’re at it.
The iconic doll who does it all is also a pro at purchasing gifts that wow — and she has some exclusive picks for New York Post readers. She covers everyone on her list, and she can help you with yours — from what to get your besties, her sisters Stacie and Skipper, and, of course, something for the Ken in your life.
“Whether a gift is something silly, something needed, or something thoughtful, I love bringing joy to friends and family during the holiday season,” Barbie told The Post.
Below are her carefully curated gifts for the holidays, so you and your friends can live in a Barbie world just like the famous, trend-setting doll.
“A holiday treat that looks as good as it tastes, this Milk Bar Peppermint Bark Cake is as Insta-worthy as it is delish,” raved Barbie, probably in between bites of this yummy wintry confection.
Milk Bar is known for its holiday flavors, and after you enjoy the pumpkin cake for Thanksgiving, ship this minty treat to a friend and make their holidays that much sweeter. (Milk Bar can send the tasty treat anywhere in the country to friends near and far.) The cake features layers of peppermint-soaked dark-chocolate, with crunchy cocoa crumbs, chocolate fudge and peppermint frosting, and it’s topped with crushed candy cane.
Customize your very own Barbie Dreamhouse with this easy-to-use wallpaper from Society6.
“With everyone staying at home and staring at the walls, let’s jazz them up! Graphic prints and pops of color are an easy DIY project to create a new vibe,” said Barbie.
Society6’s team of artists offer a huge variety of prints and patterns, one for every room of your (doll)house.
“I love to accessorize and BaubleBar has so many fun styles to choose from. A gift card allows anyone to express their own unique style personality!” said Barbie.
While she may come with her own caboodle of accessories, someone on your holiday list may be in need of some sparkle. Gift cards can be given in amounts ranging from $25 to $500, and with the option for an e-gift card or a traditional printed one, it’s never been easier to gift some glitz.
“What’s a better gift than a great night’s sleep? Snooze in style with this zodiac-themed eye mask — special shout-out to my fellow Pisces!” said a well-rested Barbie.
Whether you’re a Pisces like Barbie (and Ken!) or not, the silky-smooth eye masks at Bloomingdale’s portend a good night’s sleep for whoever wears one. The embroidered mask has a silk-covered elastic band to fit all head shapes and sizes and won’t pull your hair while you sleep.
Strike a pose, Barbie — a yoga pose, that is!
Barbie and friends know how important it is to take some time for reflection while getting in your 30 minutes of activity per day. Do both with this yoga mat from Yoga Direct. Sold at Walmart, the ⅛-inch mat comes in a variety of Barbie-approved colors such as lavender, orange and pink.
“Encourage self-care — it’s the gift that keeps on giving!” said Barbie.
“Chi makes the best hair tools, and I recommend gifting this one early. It’s perfect for getting glam before any virtual holiday parties!” said Barbie.
The blonde is exactly right, as this exclusive collaboration is a great gift and is a hot-pink pick for any beauty lover. Get Barbie’s signature high ponytail with the Chi flat iron, made with a 1-inch titanium plate and an LED temperature display. The straightener is only available online on the Ulta website, so feel free to throw in some other Barbie-branded must-haves while you’re at it.
“Take any holiday party to the next level with the Rocket Man’s greatest hits! I love it on vinyl for the full experience,” said Barbie, in between tracks.
Barbie is a huge Elton John fan herself, slipping into her own “Tiny Dancer” persona now and then. Listen to Sir Elton’s music the way it was meant to be heard — on vinyl, and with a perfect mix of his greatest hits. The album includes classics such as “Rocket Man,” “Candle in the Wind” and his duet with George Michael, “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me.”
Barbie thinks that everyone should be able to get an education, so they can grow up to be who they want to be. That’s why a donation to She’s The First makes for an empowering gift for anyone on your list.
“She’s The First is an incredible organization that educates and empowers girls. Making a donation in a friend’s name is all about the purpose, not the purchase!” explained Barbie.
The purpose is to help provide girls with access to education and build support systems to help guide them through to graduation. Especially during the coronavirus pandemic, this gift will not only warm the heart of the recipient whose name is honored with the contribution, but it will make an impact on another girl in the world.
Take your look from the boardroom to the ballroom with a makeup look fit for a CEO.
A perfect gift for the boss babe in your life, the lipstick and nail-polish duo from Pür Cosmetics comes in a beautiful red that commands a room just by walking into it. The set contains one Pür x Barbie Iconic Lips lipstick in CEO and a Butter London x Barbie CEO Patent Shine nail lacquer.
“This makeup duo is an easy way to add some holiday glam to any at-home look!” said Barbie.
“Put your best face forward — on video calls! This daily illuminating moisturizer promises to give skin a hydrated glow,” said the fresh-faced doll.
Have porcelain skin just like Barbie with the “mega-illuminating” moisturizer from GlamGlow. The limited-edition crossover is made with hyaluronic acid, green tea and illuminating pearls to promote a healthy look for normal, dry and combination skin. The skin-care staple is available at Sephora, both online and for in-store pickup at select locations.
