This gift guide was so fun to put together! Fun fact: I love Youtube beauty tutorials and have a long, long list of items from those videos that I never buy for myself. But I’d love to receive as a gift — so of course, this guide was the easiest to put together because basically, I want all these things. Ha!

Let’s talk luxe! Starting with the new Kristin Ess rotating curling iron from Target. I love Kristin Ess and her hair products so this curling iron is top of my list! (It puts my current $15 curling iron to shame!) I also have big heart eyes for this Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer, all the fabulous beauty vloggers die over this and I think I would, too! This T3 Blowdryer is the favorite that I’ve used for years (except this one is nice and updated! Way fancier than my older way.) And last but not least on the luxe list, this Simple Human Vanity Mirror is deluxe for sure! So amazing for anyone who takes their makeup seriously.

Moving down the list to everyday items, this silk hair wrap is amazing for hair that you want to keep from tangling in the night. Keep that blowout, girl! Plus — how fabulous would you or your friend look going to bed with this wrap on? Very chic, dear. VERY CHIC. If you’re into giving the classic gift of perfume, I’ve sampled this Byredo ‘Gypsy Water’ Fragrance and love the light floral fragrance, perfect for anyone on your list! Or how about giving the gift of brand new makeup brushes? Speaking my love language right there because Lord knows mine are old, cheap and due for an update and I know I’m not the only one!

I love the holiday releases from my favorite beauty brands, like this shimmer highlight collection from Charlotte Tilbury, made to look like bars of gold. Adorable and so fancy. Or this metallic nude palette from Sephora — what a great stocking stuffer this would be! Speaking of stocking stuffers, Colleen Rothschild has a smaller size of the Radiant Cleansing Balm that I would happily wake up to on Christmas morning. (It’s the perfect travel size, too!)

Not to leave out these fabulous mask duos from Glossier — I haven’t tried them yet but it’s on my list! I love everything Glossier so I doubt that I’d be disappointed. I’ve also been thinking about jumping on the jade facial roller trend as well. Imagine these two together in one present? The ultimate best friend gift!

Another thought for the beauty lover: retailers like Sephora and Ulta have a ton of special gift sets this time of year! Also a great thing to take advantage of it you aren’t quite sure your friend or family members preferred shade or favorite brand. Why not give a few different products to try? I’ve made it easy for you — I’ve linked them below!
