Best Small Beauty Gifts for Any Occasion

Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, holiday, or even a thank you, beauty products make great gifts. And there’s nothing we love more than shopping for them! If you share this joy (and we bet you do!), check out the following bookmarkable gift list — for absolutely any occasion!

Best beauty gifts

Lip Balm

Everyone's lips need some care now and again. A balm set like Kiehl’s Lip Balm Giftables packages lip protection and fun together in a cute and colorful kit. The Kiehl's box includes four sweet scents: original, cranberry, mint and mango.

Lip Color

How often do we splurge on a truly special lip color? Your best friend will flip if you do it for her. L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive, for example, comes in six unique shades, each created to match a specific skin tone.

Hair Sets

Nothing says, "I love your hair" like giving someone great haircare products. Shower her with the gift of smooth, soft locks with a set like Shu Uemura Art of Hair Cleansing Oil Gift Set. It includes a shampoo, conditioner and a travel-sized protective oil in a pretty bottle.

Nice Nails

It's easy to forget the joys of really nice nail polish if you're always buying the cheap stuff. Remind a friend how much she deserves to be pampered with a high-shine, red nail polish like YSL La Laque Couture in Rouge Expressionniste, which comes in a sleek, logo-adorned glass bottle.

Pretty Palettes

It takes forever to build a great collection of makeup that both coordinates and gives you lots of choice. The right palette set can do it all at once. A gift like NYX Cosmetics Waiting For Tonight Palette comes packed with everything your friend needs for a night out on the town, including eye shadows, blushes, eyebrow pencils, concealers, lip glosses and bronzer.

Sweet Scents

Indulge your mom with a fresh and slightly fruity fragrance like Lancôme La Vie est Belle. Elegant and classic, the bottle is beautiful, and the name, La Vie est Belle, means “Life is Beautiful" — just how spending time with our moms makes us feel!

Body Washes

Treat someone to an at-home spa experience with a refreshing, full-fragrance body wash, such as Giorgio Armani Beauty Si Body Wash. This formula contains notes of blackcurrant nectar and musky blond wood.

For the Boys

Yes, even your boy can benefit from beauty products. Give him a gift that benefits you as well, like Z Zenga Aftershave Lotion, which is lightly infused with Z Zenga’s signature scent and will leave his face feeling smooth and looking fresh.
