If you have a skincare enthusiast on your list, they will love this new part of their routine.
This Amazon top-rated steamer uses nano-ionic steam, which is 10 times more effective at penetrating the surface of the skin. It also includes five skin tools to help with the extraction of blackheads and whiteheads.
The steamer also has two other amazing functions, which makes DIY facials a breeze.

If your friend loves dramatic lashes, a heated eyelash curler is a great gift! The Chella is portable and travel-friendly so your beauty lover never has to be without it. This is the one I personally have, and I love it.
Reviewers report that it heats up quickly and the results last longer than a traditional curler, and it’s just $22.
5. The Original BeautyBlender ($20)
The BeautyBlender is a makeup lovers best friend! They’re exactly what you need for perfectly blended makeup!
If you don’t own a BeautyBlender here’s the details. Get this little sponge wet and use it to blend just about everything – foundation, concealer, bronzer. It works like magic!
Chances are the lady on your list that you’re shopping for already owns one of these. But take a look at it….does it look old and gross? You’ll look like a boss when you gift her one and tell her you noticed that hers was looking a bit dull. 😉
- Top-selling makeup sponge
- Super-soft, exclusive, latex-free foam quickly blends makeup for an easy application and flawless, skin-like finish.
- Use it with foundations, powders, and any other complexion product.
I’m always on the hunt for the best ways to get fuller hair, and a scalp scrub is a great (and luxurious feeling) way to get it. This Philip B. scrub smells amazing and feels even better. Close your eyes and you might think you’re treating yourself to a spa day.
- Removes dirt, oil and buildup
- Avocado, sea salt, peppermint and eucalyptus oils exfoliate
- Witch hazel water, arnica flower extract and aloe leaf juice cleanse
- Vegan and cruelty-free
Release stress with this indulgent body scrub, made from crushed amethyst gemstone and epsom salt. Clinical tests found it makes skin instantly softer and smooths away dryness and flakiness.
8. Facial Roller ($28)
Facial rollers all the rage and I can almost guarantee you that the lady you’re shopping for has wanted to try one of these. This simple tool is easy to use — you simply roll over your face in an outward direction for a relaxing facial massage, leaving skin radiant.
I carry a ton of tension in my face so when I’m feeling stressed I roll it out with my rose quartz roller and immediately feel more relaxed!
This gift is great for oil lovers (putting a drop of an oil on this before rolling is amazing I’ve heard!) or anyone who is stressed out (haha!).
This is a great one-size-fits-all gift — you don’t have to worry about shades or sizes. If you’ve ever stepped into an Anthropologie store, you know how luxurious and calming this smells! Bring that feeling home with this Capri Blue Volcano room spray.
10. L’Occitane Hand Cream Set ($29)
This L’Occitane Hand Cream Set is ideal for women in cold weather locations or who always have dry hands. L’Occitane has some of the amazing hand cream. These 3 hand creams include Almond Delicious, Shea Butter and Lavender Hand Cream.
This trio is perfect so you are never left without something to take care of dry hands! I have these tubes at my desk, in our diaper bag and in my purse so I always am within reach of good quality lotion!
My husband got this for a couple years ago and it’s one of my favorite things! This is my absolute favorite hand cream and I also love that L’Occitane employs women in Africa to give them a fair wage and a way to support their family.
11. Caudalie Instant Detox Mask ($39)
This mask is good for girls who are prone to breakouts (you don’t have to mention that to her, of course!) or love trying new masks.
This Caudalie Instant Detox Mask is my guilty pleasure. It’s a plant-based purifying clay mask that cleanses and tightens your pores! This mask has a light texture that feels so good.
I love doing masks because they force me to sit and chill out for a bit. Bonus is this makes your face look and feel amazing afterwards!
Also check out this post for a few other masks I love!
I have friends who swear by this funny looking stone! The practice of Gua Sha visibly lifts and contours your face — plus it’s basically a daily facial massage!
Any makeup lover would be thrilled to get this Slip Silk Pillowcase as a gift! This silk pillowcase is perfect for anyone who who has hair breakage, concerned about wrinkles or…sleeps (haha!).
I got this a few years ago and love it! There are so many benefits to silk pillowcases like less wrinkles, less hair breakage and overall feeling like a QUEEN.
14. Claw Clip Set
Replace their plain bobby pins and hair ties with trendy two-tone claw clips! They instantly add some interest to any outfit.
Or you can get her pearl headbands!
This Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray is great for women who have fine hair or who love big, thick hair and fun hairstyles!
This is by far my favorite texturizing spray! I bought it for all of my girlfriends last year to get them obsessed as well. I’ve shared about it here if you want some additional tips!
This T3 Micro Curling Wand Trio is a splurge but you (or whoever you’re shopping for) deserves to be splurged on, right? This is perfect for anyone who loves curling or styling their hair!
I splurged on this about a year ago and am SO glad I did. My hair looks so much better when I curl it and there’s so many things I can do with these 3 pieces.
17. Artis Brush
Honestly I don’t think you can go wrong with any Artis brush but I personally own their foundation brush. I love using this brush and I feel like it allows me to use less foundation since it helps cover my face so well! It’s a splurge but that’s what Christmas is for!
This brush (or any of their other brushes) are great for anyone who loves makeup and already has a collection of brushes on their vanity!
- Made with over 250,000 fibers, densely packed into a plush brush head that gives you seamless blending and flawless results.
- Largest Artis tool for blending liquid, cream, and powder formulations
- Can be used to apply products anywhere on the face and body.
There is no greater self care than a good night’s sleep! This weighted eye mask blocks out light as well as providing soothing pressure to help with migraines, stress, anxiety and more.
This Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit is perfect for anyone who travels (bronzer + highlighter in one!), loves simplicity with their products or loves to contour!
This contour kit has 5 beautiful shades that you can use for sculpting and defining features or just doing easy shading!
Each shade is removable and refillable so you can fill what you want when you want. I’ve been using these for over a year and love them!
I picked up a jar of Laneige’s lip sleeping mask a few months ago and don’t know how I ever slept without it! It’s a super hydrating leave-on mask that both soothes and moisturizes your lips overnight.
This is the perfect stocking stuffer for your wife or a sweet little add on for your favorite babysitter.
- Moisture Wrap™ technology boasts hyaluronic acid and minerals to form a protective film over the lips to lock in moisture and active ingredients
- Allure Best of Beauty award winner
- Enriched with vitamin C and antioxidants
- Free from parabens and phthalates
21. Follain Lip Balm
Got a natural beauty in your life who doesn’t use much more than Chapstick? Give them a little upgrade with this lip balm! It’s wonderfully creamy and all natural.
22. Love 31
I started using this earlier this year and have fallen in love with it. It smells beautiful, goes on well and my face looks and feels fresh and amazing after I put it on!
Over 90 versions went in to perfecting this produce so you know it’s made to perfection!
Groomed brows aren’t going out of style anytime soon. Boy Brow is great for anyone on your list, whether they already have a brow routine or not. It’s a simple addition to what they do or can be worn alone for quick, fuller brows.
Give her an excuse to put her feet up! Baby Foot products are miracle workers for rough dry feet. Wear this exfoliating peel for an hour and get soft smooth feet within a week as dead skin cells peel off.
I did this (and so did my husband) this past spring and it really works! Just be warned – your feet peel for about a week so make sure she doesn’t use it right before a beach vaca!
25. Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath Lip Gloss
Get the plump-lip look with just a quick application of lip gloss. The Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath makes lips full, firm and moisturized. It’s great for a night out, family photos or a New Year’s Eve party!
The quickest way to feel pampered is to take care of puffy tired eyes! These fan favorite eye gels from Skyn Iceland de-puff, soothe and brighten.
27. Omnilux ContourTM FACE
I’ve been using the Omnilux Contour red light for a few months and love it! These masks do all sorts of things – they reduce fine lines and wrinkles, help reduce redness and pigmentation, promote healthier, younger looking skin and more.
This is a splurge item but it’s a splurge item that’s worth it!
I’m crossing my fingers that Rishi picks up that weighted eye mask for me. What are you hoping is under your tree this year?
