With Christmas a little more than two weeks away, now is the time to make sure you’ve found the perfect gifts for all your friends and family. To help you out, we’ve compiled a roundup of five beauty gifts for the gals in your life—and at under $50 a pop, they won’t break your budget.
For the glam bestie:
Ted Baker’s Cosmetics Case in Light Pink ($45) is the perfect little pouch for your friend to tote around all her makeup must-haves. The glossy patent leather makes this case super durable so she can toss it in her suitcase when she travels, or in her workbag on her commute. And the little black bow is so irresistibly charming!
For the hard-working coworker:
Treat your stressed out colleague to Crabtree and Evelyn’s Holiday Hand Care Set ($22), which she’ll be able to use all year round. The luxurious, high quality hand creams deeply moisturize and the seasonal-inspired scents will take her on a mini-vacation long after the holiday season is over. Plus, the set comes with three tubes—one for the desk, one for the purse, and one for the night table.
For the edgy trend-setter:
We all have that friend who seems to be two seasons ahead of the fashion curve. For her, the Deborah Lippmann Starlight Set ($49) is a great compilation of glittery nail polishes to add to her arsenal. Festive for the holidays when used as accents—or rock-and-roll gam when used for a full-out manicure—your stylish friend will be able to put these sparkly shades to good use!
For the youthful mom:
Help your mom maintain her youthful radiance—while giving her a chance to relax—by gifting her with a mask. Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Extreme Ultra Firming Mask ($42) deeply hydrates the skin while lifting and brightening to help decrease signs of aging. Weekly masks are a great way to unwind after a long week, and your mom definitely deserves it.
For the budding beauties:
For your younger friends and cousins who are just starting to grow their makeup collection, Lancome Juicy Tubes Dazzling Pink Lip Gloss Set ($30) is a great addition. The super sheer glosses are age appropriate for younger girls but still have enough shine and tint to make the wearer feel special.
