42 Crave-Worthy Holiday Beauty Gifts for Her
Our gift guide has the year’s best primping presents for all the beauty junkies in your life.
Custom hair solution
Depending on the hair type you’re buying for, you can tailor your beauty gifts for her appropriately (strengthening, smoothing, hydrating) with Pureology’s several Holiday Kits ($58). Gift sets include shampoo, conditioner, and three styling products.
If you’re looking for the best self-tanning lotions, there’s one product every women needs in her arsenal, and that’s Tom Ford’s Bronzing Gel. Don’t be scared off by the deep brown tint—this all-flattering gel looks nothing if not natural, ranking it among the perfect beauty gifts for her.
Luxe hand care
The eyes may be the window to the soul, but the hands are the window to your real age! Help a loved one fool the world with BYREDO’s pampering hand care collection, which includes hand wash, hand lotion, and cream, all formulated with the brand’s new rose scent.
Glacial water ornament
While glacial water is one of the last things you probably want touching your skin, turns out (when expertly blended into skincare) it’s an antidote for stressed skin, and that’s all of us after a little too much holiday fun. Skyn ICELAND harnesses the powers of glacial water in this Cleanser and Moisturizer Duo gift set ($15).
A-listers like Victoria Beckham swear by Dr. Lancer, and the Radiance Kit by Dr. Lancer ($75) is just the kit to show why. Included are all the must-haves to start a Lancer anti-aging regimen, including the brand’s best-selling product, The Method: Polish, an anti-aging exfoliator. (Just watch that you’re not making these exfoliating mistakes.)
A good kind of needle
This is the year of microneedling and if you’re not doing it already, now is the time to start. (We swear poking your skin with tiny needles is not as painful as it sounds!). Glopro ($145) is the clear leader in this category—within the first 12 minutes of appearing on the Home Shopping Network, $400,000 worth of the devices were sold. A few months later HSN had sold $4.4 million worth! Countless women swear by its ability to instantly minimize pores and boost radiancy. Here are the benefits of microneedling, if you’re not up to speed.
A higher level of skin care
The limited edition Drunk Elephant Come C About Me ($88) set is valued at $108 and includes the clean brand’s bestselling daily cleanser, hydration gel, potent vitamin C serum, and physical sunscreen in super cute packaging.
Beauty and energy boost
These beauty gifts for her aren’t just practical; they’re sustainable! Developed by an athlete and fitness trainer, Dope Naturally is a line of ingestible beauty products based on beets and watermelon seeds (nutritionists love these). Each product is designed to boost skin health, while also increasing energy levels and muscle recovery. There are no added sugars or flavors—just pure organic ingredients you can recognize, and everything actually tastes good! Add it to your water or smoothies, or mix it into yogurt or granola.
For those who like to lay back and soak in a bubble bath, there’s no better accessory than the Clarins Tonic Scented Candle ($75). Note, this is a deluxe size candle at 13.6 ounces (hence the three wicks). Here’s why a bath is just the de-stressor you didn’t know you needed.
Now that we’re heading into the dry winter season hair masks become crucial to maintain healthy hair. Phyto’s Mix and Mask Hair Trio ($29–$48 value) includes mini-sizes of their hydrating, volumizing, and repairing masks. Just make sure to choose the right hair mask for your hair type.
