As a beauty editor for almost two decades, you better believe my friends and family are anxiously awaiting their holiday gifts from me, as they know I always have the goods on the hottest must-haves of the season. Ahead, I rounded up my favorite beauty and grooming gifts to give (and hopefully receive) this holiday season.
The Best Beauty & Grooming Gifts for 2023
Now this is the ultimate stocking stuffer! The No Glue Mani is being taken to the next level! Create a MAJOR moment in minutes with colorFX by imPRESS. This is color reimagined, with chrome-like effects that cannot be achieved from any ordinary nail polish. Press these on and cue the compliments!
Get everything you need for a DIY eyelash extensions look in one complete kit. Ultimate kit comes with all the essentials needed to apply and remove your Falscara lash wisps, including their latest additions: Prep & Primer and Easy Gel Remover. (Yes, there are the lashes everyone is raving about on TikTok!)
Give the gift of elegance this holiday season with this 4-Piece Braid Styling Gift Set. Style and strengthen as you seal in moisture and add shine with our Maximum Hold Braiding Gel. Boost shine and prevent frizz with our Styling Foam Mousse.
Lash luxury for the holidays! Limited Edition curated 4-pair multipack comes with its own full-size tube of KISS Lash Couture SUPERSTRONG Clear Lash Adhesive! Matte Black Faux Mink lashes have a diffused matte finish that looks more natural than any other lashes. NYE is on the way and this is the perfect way to add some drama to your look, instantly.
Give the gift of beauty sleep! Specially woven to be the perfect blend of brilliance and strength, these silk pillowcases are made with proprietary DiamondSilk™ which feels buttery soft and has a radiant sheen. All silk pillowcases are great for hair and skin health, but our silk pillowcase offers a smoother, shinier experience. (I am personally obsessed!)
I scoped this luxury gift set out for my 21-year-old son. It has everything he needs to get his skin looking great (including an amazing skin scrub), plus it all comes in a travel case he can use when he’s on the go. (Just hope he doesn’t read this and spoil the surprise!)
Nothing harnesses the magic of the season like the one and only Snow Fairy– with an incomparable nostalgic scent that transports you to a sweet, bubbly wonderland! If you know someone who just can’t get enough of the bubblegum sweetness of Snow Fairy, this is the perfect way to spoil them. Packed with nearly every one of the Snow Fairy products in Lush’s Christmas range, you’ll make the beauty lover in your list feel like a true pampered pixie. Bonus – it’s Vegan, which is why it will be PERFECT for my 19-year-old daughter!
The second I first sniffed this luxury candle I knew it would be the best gift for my mom and dad, who not only love Italy, but just moved into a new home. Amalfi is an oasis of natural charm. Undeniably citrusy with a twist of succulent melon, a sunbaked ripeness reveals the fullness of fruit. The fragrance is richly infused in a luxurious, proprietary soy-wax blend candle with a 100% cotton wick, hand poured into a modern blue glass keepsake jar.
Sparkling pressed glitter that lends a fairy-like shimmer to your eyes, face, and body. Designed with a blend of magical champagne and baby peach glitters, this mesmerizing formula will be turning heads from miles away.
Designed by Celebrity MUA Elaina Badro, this luxe makeup brush collection guarantees to deliver a seamlessly flawless finish for any cosmetic junkie. With high-grade bristles, copper ferrules, and premium wooden handles, each of the six luxury brushes included in this kit is designed with performance and functionality in mind. (Perfect for any beauty lover on your list)
Although this isn’t exactly a beauty product (I would consider more fashion related), a close friend asked me if there are any nipple covers on the market that actually work and look good under clothes and I finally found a brand I love. (So, I will gift this to her, along with a tank top I know she will love!) Gatherall nipple covers can worn up to 30 times – the Ultra thin adhesive solid silicone nipple covers with tapered edge technology stay flushed to your skin and seamless under your clothes. They’re 100% opaque & no-show- unlike others in the market.
Should you find yourself under the mistletoe, this great-smelling, thick but not too sticky, lip mask moisturizes and nourishes lips to perfection. Formulated with mineral oil, castor oil, cocoa seed butter, and more nutrient-rich ingredients, it delivers deep hydration and a pretty, glossy pink finish so you are prepared to pucker up.
I am all for DIY beauty treatments that help you skip the pricey procedures and take the power of amazing skin in your own hands. This multi-effect skincare beauty tool provides a full luxurious med spa-like experience. Depuff, reduce swelling, remove makeup, lift, firm, promote collagen production, cleanse, and reduce wrinkle. (I want this for myself!!)
Guys, throw away your disgusting loofah, it’s not manly and it’s gross. Meet your new shower buddy, the Black Wolf Sonic Scrubber. With its telescopic and detachable handle, it’s been designed to reach all angles of your body and face super easy plus this baby is rechargeable, lasts for 3 hrs of use and it’s waterproof. (This one is going to my hubby!)
This designer unisex perfume is the perfect earthy woody fragrance with a hint of adventure. The ethereal scent makes a great gift for any fragrance lover on your list! Sacred Santal bridges gender boundaries, evoking the timeless essence of personal freedom and wild spirit. Immerse in the deep, rich tones of leather, harmoniously entwined with the delicate whispers of iris and violet leaf. (It smells incredibly amazing and you can’t beat the price!)
