We're Making A List...
For the fragrance lover
Not everyone loves fragrances, but for those of us who know women (or men!) with a scent affinity, the holidays are the perfect time to treat them to something new! Two of our top picks this season? Vintage Bloom by Jessica Simpson ($30-$65) and Avon For Him Fragrance Sampler ($23)
For the hair gal
Give the hair-loving lady in your life a little luxury this season with Oribe's Ultra Gentle Collection. For $68, she'll get an Ultra Gentle Shampoo, Ultra Gentle Conditioner and Masque for Beautiful Color. Another gift idea? ColorProof Evolved Color Care’s Holiday Totes ($60-75), available in three varieties: volumizing, moisturizing and argan oil smoothing. Our fave part? The brand's products are 100 percent vegan, and sulfate, paraben and gluten free!
For the nail fan
Deborah Lippmann never fails to disappoint us with her gorgeous nail hues, and this holiday season the nail guru has done it again with her Christmas in the City set! Available exclusively at Nordstrom for $42, the set features three Christmas-ready shades any nail lover is sure to fall for. Does your nail gal have a passion for metallics? Gift her NCLA's The Ritz set ($39), a sleek trio of bold metallic hues sure to get her noticed.
For the makeup maven
One of our fave parts of the holiday season? All the fab makeup palettes that the best brands release! Two we're crushing on this December? Sonia Kashuk's limited edition Formal Affair Face Palette ($20) and Sephora's Jumbo Liner 12 Hour Wear Waterproof Set ($24). Makeup lovers, rejoice!
For the body beauty
Winter is about to hit us with all its dry skin annoyingness, and we're all going to need some body backup! With that in mind, it's the perfect time to gift the spa-loving gal with a luxurious body set, like this Green Tea one from Elizabeth Arden ($42). On a tight budget this year? Opt for Olay's Winter Wonderful set ($10)!
Bonus gift idea!
The holidays are a joyful time but let's get real — they can also be quite stressful! To help deal with the pressure of the season, gift a loved one (or yourself!) Earth Therapeutics' Holistic Stress Management Kit ($20). Featuring an anti-stress massage soap, silk eye pillow, massage lotion and eye compress, the kit has everything you'll need to escape from thoughts of screaming kids and present shopping!
