One of the most challenging things about the holidays is coming up with gift ideas. Although I love shopping and buying gifts, even I occasionally get challenged. You, too? I’ve put together a gift guide of some of my favorites this season; hopefully this will spark an idea or two!

The Too Faced Cosmetics Gingerbread Holiday Collection is the cutest I’ve seen all season. Not only is the packaging adorable, it’s scented deliciously, too! Gift her one of the super-pigmented eyeshadow palettes…both the Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette and the Extra Spicy Eyeshadow Palette feature warm shades, with bold pops of color. This is a palette she’ll use over and over!

One thing you can never have enough of is makeup brushes. The Your Brush Magic! Set from IT Cosmetics is practical, as well as beautiful. I use IT Cosmetics brushes every day, and they’re some of the best out there. This set has 5 full size essential brushes, plus a travel case. The lucite handles are so luxe, you can leave this set out on your vanity, or stow in the case.

Kerastase has the most elegant boxed full-sized haircare sets for the holidays. Most women can benefit from a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner for color-treated hair; the Reflection Gift Set is perfect. I also love that the L’incroyable Blowdry Hair Lotion is included, which offers frizz protection and heat protection up to 450º.

If you’re gifting someone that’s into wellness, CBD products are the latest must-have products. Physicians Grade PRIME has expertly crafted their CBD products to soothe and relax. All products are tested for purity, potency and safety by a third party independent lab. These products are great for soothing body and mind, calming irritated skin and hydrating.

What’s prettier at the holidays than a sexy shimmer? Urban Decay won’t leave you out in the cold! The new Scented Sparkling Body Powders are available in three scents: Honey (gold shimmer), Heat (bronze shimmer), and Cherry (pink shimmer). This glittery powder can be dusted on shoulders, décolletage, or legs for a sexed-up shimmer.

Physicians Formula has a variety of holiday gift sets that would be loved by gals of any age. The Rosé All Day Glow Squad set has an assortment of six travel-sized brightening skincare products. The Ultimate Murumuru Butter Collection is a blockbuster set, with 58 shades of Murumuru Butter eyeshadows and more! You can find these sets in Target and other mass retailers.

If you’re down to buying stocking stuffers, the Fresh® Sugar Lip Treatment SPF15 in the new Icon (classic red) shade is perfect for under the mistletoe! And no worries about drying out your lips–instead, this lip balm hydrates and conditions. The Icon shade has a satin finish, and you can use as a stain, or build color. Love!
