She has a ton of lip balm holders to choose from. They are great to hook onto keys, jeans, back packs and more! Never go digging for your lip balm again!

And how adorable is this idea to jazz up the boring gift cards? Coordinate your gift card and lip balm holder, throw in your favorite Gettin’ Lippy lip balm and you have a fun and functional gift!
