What do you get the beauty junkie who has everything? Here’s a quick list to provide some holiday gift inspiration for your favorite skin care lover or makeup maven.

Holiday Exclusives
The recipient of your gift may have all of her favorite day-to-day items already, but she certainly doesn’t have this year’s holiday exclusives! Most beauty brands offer special kits and palettes only available through the holiday season, often with a special holiday price tag attached. If you do some covert digging, you can easily discover your loved one’s favorite brands and product types, and find a great holiday beauty product that will surprise and delight her.

Build a Bundle
If you feel like going above and beyond, build your own product bundle! Fill a new beauty travel bag with some fresh mascara (something we all need every couple months!), a new lip gloss shade, and a  resealable pack of makeup remover wipes. If you stay true to must-have products that always need replacing, you’ll never run into the issue of duplicate or unnecessary gifts.

Target Concerns
For some, this may be a touchy area, so know your giftee well before attempting to treat their skin care concerns. However, if you’re gifting for your best friend, sister, or simply a very open family member, knowing their skin care issues and trying to help them out may be seen as the most thoughtful gift possible! Research and choose a great acne spot treatment, rosacea cream, or powdered blotting tissues — whatever would care for your dear one’s biggest skin care issues.

Package it alongside something fun (new eyeshadow, anyone?), and maybe a little product information if it’s something they haven’t tried before. Done right, and your friend or family member will be touched that you took so much care to find them something they would love.

Order a Gift Set
When all else fails, pre-made beauty gift sets are a great way to go. They make a statement, treat a variety of concerns, and usually come with a discounted price tag. Plus, if you don’t know your loved one’s skin type or product preferences, gift sets are often made for the multitudes, ensuring that your recipient’s skin is cared for, no matter what their skin care concerns.
