This box has everything you need to care for yourself this winter, including products from a few of our favorite brands, new and old. Not to mention, any of these products make a perfect gift for anyone on your holiday list.

  • WAY OF WILL Elevate Essential Oil Set: Sweet Orange Oil & Eucalyptus Oil – The Sweet Orange Oil is for energizing and the Eucalyptus Oil is for revitalizing to keep you feeling like your best self.

We survey our members year-round about trends and brands they are excited about, products they want to see in the box and more,” said Kitchens. “Our number one most requested item for winter was a cozy blanket, and we are delivering on that with one of our winter box hero items, the Mark & Graham colorblock throw. This is the perfect blanket that looks great as a living room accent and can be taken on the go for all your holiday travels.”

In addition to the excitement surrounding the products inside the box each season, FabFitFun continually engages a new philanthropic partner, and this season the featured charity is The Kindness Factory, a non-profit organization that promotes and encourages acts of kindness in the community whether its something simple as complimenting a friend, or providing a meal to someone in need. When founder Kath Koschel lost her partner to suicide, she found it was the kindness of those around her that helped her through the journey towards recovery. Understanding the power of kindness, she launched The Kindness Factory to encourage people to show kindness to themselves and others. Their goal is to reach 1 million acts of kindness by 2020. FabFitFun members will be able to donate to the kindness Factory in $1 and $5 increments during the Add-Ons portion of sales.

Barbie® honors Savannah Guthrie And Hoda Kotb As Role Models With One-Of-A-Kind Dolls

TODAY Show Co-hosts Celebrated as Part of the Barbie Shero Program to Inspire the Next Generation of Girls

Barbie® honors journalists Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb as role models, or “Sheroes,” for breaking boundaries to inspire the next generation of girls. The pair made history as the first female duo to anchor NBC’s TODAY Show in the franchise’s 66-year history. This milestone furthers girls and women alike, as the co-hosts bring a diverse perspective in the newsroom at a time when it’s needed most. Guthrie and Kotb will be awarded one-of-a-kind dolls in their likeness at the Glamour Women of the Year Summit.

Savannah and Hoda OOAK Barbie Dolls

Barbie® honors journalists Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb as role models, or “Sheroes,” for breaking boundaries to inspire the next generation of girls.

This effort is part of the brand’s commitment to showing girls more role models through the Dream Gap Project, an ongoing global initiative to raise awareness around limiting factors that prevent girls from reaching their full potential. Research has shown that starting at the

age of five, many girls are less likely than boys to view their own gender as smart and begin to lose confidence in their own competence — this is coined the “Dream Gap.”

To help close the Dream Gap, Barbie is committed to highlighting a minimum of 10 role models annually, because showing girls more role models is an effective way to inspire their limitless potential. To date, the brand has surpassed this goal by highlighting more than 20 historical and modern role models in 2018.

As we head into our 60th year, it is important that we continue to shine a light on female role models – or Sheroes as we call them – like Savannah and Hoda, to show girls they can be anything,” said Lisa McKnight, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Barbie. “Savannah and Hoda have modernized morning news and allowed more women and girls to see themselves, and their stories reflected on television.”

At the Glamour Women of the Year Summit, Barbie will honor Guthrie and Kotb on stage and lead a conversation around supporting girls. This is not the first time Barbie has partnered with Glamour, as the brand honored Ibtihaj Muhammad, the first American Olympian to compete while wearing a hijab, and Ashley Graham, model, and body activist, at past Glamour Women of the Year events.

I’m so proud to continue the partnership with Barbie and The Dream Gap, especially in what we at Glamour consider to be the year of the woman,” said editor-in-chief Samantha Barry. “It’s more important than ever to show young girls that nothing is out of reach. These dolls represent a landmark moment for women this year, and I hope to inspire the next generation of women journalists.”

While the co-hosts are gifted one-of-a-kind dolls, young fans can imagine themselves in the newsroom with the Barbie TV News Team Doll set, and play out different roles in other fields with more than 50 career doll options to choose from this holiday season.
