Best Beauty Gift Ideas for the Holidays

Best Beauty Gifts For the Beauty Junkie That Has Everything

We all know her, that girl that has everything. She follows all the top beauty bloggers and vloggers, always has the latest palette, and even follows @trendmood (or is it @trendmood1 now?) on Instagram. Don’t worry, that’s basically me and I think she’ll LOVE any of these ideas!

  • Slip Beauty Sleep Gift Set, $119
    Ah, the gift of beauty rest! Ok, maybe not exactly, but it’s about as close you can get to giving someone a restful night’s sleep. Slip was a pioneer in bringing silk pillowcases and sleep masks to the masses, and this set is perfect for any beauty lover. Silk is great for both hair and skin, as it’s said to be anti-aging plus prevents sleep creases and bedhead!
    Order by 12/22 at 12pm EST for delivery by 12/24. Or, select in-store pick up and have it gift wrapped for free!
  • Frigidaire Skincare Fridge, $29
    The trendy gift this year? Definitely a skin fridge! This retro cutie comes in several fun colors and is the perfect size to store sheet masks, facial toners, masks, and a drink or two! She can put this on her desk or keep it in the bathroom for convenience.
    Delivery cannot be guaranteed by Christmas Eve. Check your local store for in-store pickup!
  • PMD Clean Pro, $99 or Clean Pro Rose Quartz, $179
    We all know about those skincare face brushes, but this one is a little different. Instead of having to replace the brush heads, the PMD Clean Pro is made from silicone, which resists bacteria and can easily be rinsed off after use. The Rose Quartz version is super luxe and even warms up for a spa-like experience, right in your own bathroom!
    Order by 12/21 at 9am PST for FLASH 2-day shipping.
  • Solinotes The Perfume Book, $45
    Stumped on fragrances? Never fear, give her the gift that allows her to be her own perfume maker! With Solinotes’ Perfume Book, she’ll get a vial of their best-selling scents that can be mixed and layered for a scent that’s all her own. My personal go-to is layering Rose with Vanille!
    Because of the nature of this gift, delivery cannot be guaranteed by Christmas Eve. Check your local store for in-store pickup!
  • Curology Customized Skincare, starting at $4.95
    Know someone with problematic skin? Curology’s dermatologist consultation and customized skincare formula has been a gamechanger for my own and many other skincare routines. While you technically can’t sign up on someone’s behalf, this could make a great gift for a daughter, granddaughter, or someone else close to you who might need help signing up.
    Curology takes about 7-10 business days to ship once you’ve signed up and finished your consultation.
  • Rituals The Ritual of Sakura Kit, $25
    If you ask me, Rituals is one of the most underrated bath and body brands. Their products smell amazing (Sakura happens to be my favorite) and are surprisingly affordable for the quality. Their gift sets are a great value and I think anyone would be thrilled to receive this!

    2019 was the year I got hooked on nail polish strips. It all began on a trip to Disneyland where my nails looked ratchet and it was driving me nuts, so I found some in a beauty shop. It just so happened, they were put to good use and I got engaged! So let this be a lesson; always travel with nail polish strips! ;) Just kidding, but they are pretty awesome and would be the perfect stocking stuffer!
