Gift Guide 2015: Beauty Gifts

I can't believe that it is already time for Holiday Gift Guides!  Christmas is just over a month away, which means now is the time to get your shopping done to avoid all the crazy crowds.  I have a few Gift Guides coming up over the next few weeks, but today's guide is for the lady on your list who is a beauty lover.  Whether your Mom, best friend, sister or whoever else you have to gift loves all things makeup, skincare, and more this is the list for them!

All the items on this guide each retail for under $100 and quite a few are valued at much more then their prices.  The most expensive item I've picked is the Clarisonic Mia, which at $99.00 is well worth the money, give this to anyone on your gift list who loves clear, glowing skin.  A more inexpensive pick for the skincare lover in your life is the Peter Thomas Roth Mini Mask Magic Kit, for $20.00 you'll get three of the brand's most popular masks and give the gift of beautiful skin.  For fun body products everyone will love try Philosophy's Gingerbread House Set, Pink Sugar's Creamy Body Lotion (my favorite scent!), and L'Occitane's Hand Cream Trio (they make the best hand cream!).  One of the coolest gifts on the list is the Sephora Favorites Perfume Sampler, it includes eleven samples of Sephora's most popular perfumes and a certificate to redeem for a full size bottle of the receiver's favorite one.

Next, everyone knows a girl who loves makeup and this guide has no shortage of presents for her!  Three items that are fun and really great prices are the Tarte Shine Bright Statement Lash Essentials for $20.00 (how great is that eyelash curler?!), the Fresh Sugar Rosé Ritual for $18.00, and Deborah Lippmann Roses in the Snow Nail Polish Set for only $15.00.  Any of the Urban Decay Naked Palette's are a perfect gift because they're a makeup staple just about anyone can use, my personal favorite is the Naked 2 Palette.  Another makeup staple is good makeup brushes and I love these rose gold Sephora Collection Makeup Brushes and too cute leopard pouch to keep them in.  One last fun makeup gift is the Le Grand Chateau kit from Too Faced, it's only $49.00 (but is valued at $215.00!) and includes eighteen eyeshadows, two blushes, a bronzer, and mascara; the items are broken up into three different palettes and can be gifted all as one or separately.

The most universal gift from this guide, and something absolutely every girl can use is Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit for Her.  I've been using these little kits for years now and they make the best gifts.  They're filled with everything one might need in a pinch, bandages, Advil, clear nail polish, stain remover, deodorant, and much more.  They come in a variety of pouch styles and have different kits for women, men, bridesmaids, and more, making them something for literally everyone on your list!

I'm loving all of the presents here and hopefully this can help you with some of your shopping.  My goal is to have my shopping done before Thanksgiving so I'm not super stressed during finals.  What are your shopping plans for Christmas this year?  Do you like to get it done ahead of time or wait for the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals?  Let me know below!
