One of my favorite gifts to give during the holiday season is those of the beauty variety. There’s something about handing someone that helps with self-care that can really touch the heart. That said, I do have my limits. If you’ll notice, there’s nothing of the fragrance variety down there. It’s my firm belief that unless you know exactly what kind of fragrance your gift recipient likes or you’re about to buy them their favorite scent, it’s better to stick with other products. Perfume is deeply personal. It’s like buying someone underwear as a gift: you’d better get it right, or it’s going to go horribly wrong.
This is the largest of the gift guides because there are just so many awesome things in here from all the brands I love and know deliver what they promise at a variety of price points. From bath sets to awesome hair products to the best nail and makeup items you can buy, here’s my personal favorite beauty booty for that special someone. Happy Shopping!
