From beauty advent calendars to winter-themed sets to beautifully boxed perfumes, you are bound to find the perfect gift to give right here.

Beauty goes beyond just make-up. (Plus, we have not been wearing much makeup this year due to the fact that we have been wearing masks to help flatten the curve). Beauty is also present in self-care and self-love. And a lot of these product recommendations are also going to be focused towards that because they can also remind those we care about to take time for themselves.

So without further ado, let’s get into some exciting beauty and self-care gift recommendations for the winter holidays:

A Beauty Advent Calendar

We have probably seen a lot of these on the internet or in a beauty store at some point. And they certainly look exciting. After all, who wouldn’t want to get an exciting new beauty product each day?

Especially when facing yet another wave of lockdown, it really is the little details that make things feel good. By giving the gift of a beauty advent calendar, you are giving your friend or family member something to look forward to!

With these holiday-themed gifts, they will get self-care and beauty products that they will be able to use and enjoy long after December. And they will have an entertaining memory that they won’t forget so quickly!

A Holiday-Themed Beauty Set

Just because times are tough right now doesn’t mean we need to be bah humbug about it. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel! And a holiday-themed beauty set could be just what the doctor ordered to making everything feel merry and bright again. 

Moreover, there are all different kinds of holiday sets to choose from. What kinds of beauty products does your family member or close friend use the most? For instance, you can get a holiday set of just:

  • Face masks
  • Perfumes
  • Makeup
  • Lotions
  • Or even sets of body and hair products!

There are really all kinds of beauty and self-care holiday sets out there to choose from. So you are bound to find something that will help brighten up the season for your loved one and show them that you care!

Nail Polish

There are many nail polish colours out there that can help evoke holiday feelings. But the important thing to consider when gifting nail polish is what types of colours your loved one would actually wear. You definitely don’t want to get them any shades that they’ll never use.

A lot of people really enjoy reds, greens, silver, blues, and gold for the season. If you know your gal really well, you will probably know what her preference in this department is leaning towards. 

You can also gift fun things like nail decals, nail art pens, and anything else to that effect if she likes to get creative when painting her nails at home. You know your loved ones best, so you can guess or ask around to see what types of nail polishes or nail art gifts might be the most exciting!

Plus, with the second wave, doing nails at home could be a good past time while the world works on healing. 

Make-Up Kits

If you or someone you love is obsessed with make-up and chooses to expresses themselves through it, then make-up kits are the perfect gift for them. There so many great brands out there that offer great values during the holidays on their make-up sets. And these kits have it all, from lipstick to eyeliner to mascara to foundation.

Experimenting with make-up has become a new trend as more and more people are exploring make-up as an art form. Social media feeds are filled with jaw dropping makeup videos. If you have not seen these creative videos we definitely recommend checking them out. Who knows, maybe you will want to but yourself a makeup kit and start getting creative in your own way.

In the past few years going natural with little to no makeup has made quite the come back. And with the quarantine down time, we have all stated loving going bare faced. So what better way to encourage someone to love their skin again than with a skin care set.
