'Tis the season of eleventh hour mall meltdowns and "what should I get my mother-in-law?" anxiety. Thankfully, the best beauty brands have introduced gifts sure to make holiday shopping a zillion times easier. Check out our roundup of beauty gifts for everyone from your favorite product-junkie-vegan to your label-loving little sister.
Every budding makeup artist needs to own a fabulous brush kit. Surprise her (or him) with Sephora’s Complete Starter Brush Kit ($45). It includes 10 of the beauty emporium’s most popular brushes in a cute traveling case.
Gift your favorite little one with an elegant body care set. We love Noodle & Boo Essential Baby Care Set ($15), which comes with a lotion, shampoo, and body wash, all paraben-free and formulated for sensitive baby skin.
Instead of splurging on fancy manicure gift certificates, gift your nail-obsessed friend with Dashing Diva Design Nails On the Go Kit ($8). These pre-glued, press-on nails come in four eternally trendy shades, including gold matte, gold metallic, silver metallic and red metallic.
Your beauty-loving, vegan sister-in-law needs Lush Vegan Christmas Present ($26.95) in her life. The already-wrapped (love this) present is chock full of Lush’s signature all-natural goodies, including bath bubbles, two fizzy bath bombs and a marzipan-scented “Snowcake” soap.
Gift your favorite girly-girl/tech geek with the Stila Makeup Player ($70), which features a docking station and speaker system. Listen to music while you get ready, or download beauty tutorials from the StilaBeauty Tube—simply dock them into the Makeup Player, listen to the instructions, and create the hottest looks of the season.
Perfect for your favorite party girl, MAC Cosmetics Magic, Mirth, & Mischief Naughty Noir Eye Bag ($36) comes with everything you need to create a drop dead gorgeous smoky eye, including Shimmertime Pigment, Blacktrack Fluidline, Zoomblack Zoom Lash, and an Eye Liner Brush. Plus, the little pewter case is to die for.
