The holidays are always a fun time to shop for beauty products. Brands always come out with limited-edition products and there are tons of deals and opportunities to get free gifts with purchases. It’s also a great time to splurge on something you’ve been eyeing (#treatyoself) or snag an impressive deal for the makeup hoarder in your life. My favorite type of beauty gift to give is always a gift set. There are so many tempting ones out right now in every category from makeup to skincare to fragrance, plus the packaging is always really cute and festive 🙂
I love gift sets because you get a sampling of products– it’s a great opportunity to give someone the chance to test a few colors or types of products instead of just giving them one item in a large size. Gift sets are always discounted too so you get more bang for your buck.
HOLIDAY BEAUTY GIFT SETS
Clinique Pop Party Set $29.50 ($65 value)
When you purchase this limited-edition Clinique lipstick set you’ll also receive a free Clinique sample bag with a bunch of goodies including a mini cleansing balm, moisturizing gel, Chubby Stick balm and a mascara.
SETS WHERE YOU’LL RECEIVE A FREE GIFT WITH PURCHASE
YSL Black Opium (shop the Holiday gift set here) | Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb (shop the Holiday gift set here) | Clarisonic Mia 1, Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush System
Perfumes and fragrance gift sets make great holiday gifts! These are two of my favorites 🙂 And if you really want to impress the beauty addict in your life (and keep their skin looking fab) get them a Clarisonic. This little guy exfoliates and removes dirt and oil 6x better than if you washed your face with your hands!
SKINCARE & FRAGRANCE
I love anything that helps keep my makeup and toiletries organized when traveling. If you know a person that’s always on the go, consider surprising them with a new cosmetics bag and brush roll. I love this set from Kusshi— the compartments in this brush roll are all different widths so you can fit makeup brushes and products of all sizes.
BEAUTY TOOLS & DEVICES
Laura Geller Red Carpet Ready Palette & Color Luster Lip Topper Duo
Makeup makes great stocking stuffers! How cute are these two compact sets?
Last but not least: hair! I included a few products and gift sets from my favorite brands below. If you’re not comfortable purchasing someone haircare, then I’d suggest going for a tool. Hair dryers and curling iron are things that people use for years and never think to replace. Surprise them with a new one under the tree 🙂
