The Holiday Gifts You'll Want to Keep for Yourself

They say it’s better to give than to receive. But sometimes, you come across a gift that’s so good you kinda want to hold on to it. There’s nothing wrong with giving yourself a gift, right?! Whether you actually give these out or put them under the tree with your own name on them will be our dirty little secret. Either way, we can only imagine the rate at which your shopping list is multiplying, so we made things easy on ya and put together a gift guide for the beauty lovers in your life!


Makeup and Hair BOP

Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil Vault

While this $295 bad boy is currently sold out, word on the street is that it will be back in stock shortly. And with a gift this awesome (40 full-sized 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils), we’d bet big bucks that you’ll be keeping this one for yourself. No judgment here!

Lancôme Limited Edition Brush Set

It’s a well-known fact that you can never have too many makeup brushes. Get this set for the makeup pro in your circle or gift it to that one friend who always complains that she uses one brush to apply everything.


YSL The Kiss and Love Collection

For all the mothers and grandmothers out there who refuse to leave the house without lipstick on, this should keep them well stocked for years to come.


Kérastase Elixir Ultime Holiday Gift Set

The gift of gorgeous hair? Heck to the yes.


Kiehl’s Lip Balm Giftables – Limited Edition Costello & TagliaPietra

Because we all know someone who has a tube of Chapstick in their pocket, car, purse, desk, other purse, attached to their keys … upgrade them to these pretty (and protecting) lippies.





Skin, Nails and Fragrance BOP


The Body Shop Frosted Cranberry Feel Good Tin Gift Set

Not only is this the cutest and most festive gift of all time, but it’s filled with cranberry-scented goodies you’ll want to eat (but please don’t)!


Essie 2015 Hostess Kit

You can’t go to a holiday party without holiday-inspired nails! And with four shades to choose from, you, er, someone else will be ready for any office or family get-together.

Clarisonic Smart Profile Pink Holiday Set

If you don’t know someone who’s always wanted one of these, good, keep it for yourself! Your skin will thank you for this head-to-toe cleansing brush, especially now that it’s winter.

Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia Holiday Set

The iconic scent of Acqua Di Gioia now comes in a holiday scent with body lotion and two rollerballs, so the receiver can smell fab wherever they go.


Baxter of California Vitamin Cleansing Bar Trio

You may think soap to be an odd choice, but with signature scents like Italian lime and pomegranate, bergamont and pear, and flora and cassis, you’ll be getting requests for one of these sets every holiday season!
