Ultimate Beauty Gift Sets Guide!

I get asked a lot this time of year for beauty gift suggestions. Today, I'm sharing a huge roundup of a little something for the ladies on your list. These products have all been approved by me, and you know I don't recommend something unless I love it. These are all available online, and I've linked to each item to make it even easier! Check for availability in stores. Oh, and I've got a separate post coming just for eye shadow palettes, so stay tuned for that. Enjoy!

body gift sets



  • L'Occitane Hand Creams--These are among my favorite creams for keeping my hands moisturized.
  • Soap & Glory Body Butters--While I make my own, I know it's easier to buy them! I love so many of S&G's products.
  • Philosophy Gingerbread House Kit--This kit features body washes/bubble bath and lip glosses, but pretty much any Philosophy gift set is great!

  • Deborah Lippman makes some cute polishes, and this is an ultimate sampler set.
  • OPI Take Ten Mini--So many classic shades that are great for the girl who occasionally wears polish, those starting a collection, those with little space, and for ME! ;)
  • Ciate Mini Mani Month--Think of this as an Advent calendar of polishes. I don't think I could wait every day to open!

Top Row
  • For the perfume lover--Sephora Favorite Fragrance Sampler--Ulta has their own versions, too.
  • For the teen or occasional makeup user--Tarte Thoughtful Treasures--This has Maracuja oil, a blush, and a lip crayon. It looks so natural. I love this kit.
  • For the lip crayon fanatic--Another Tarte set, and this one has 4 shiny and 4 matte!
Row 2
  • For the biggest beauty fan, aka me--I'm obsessed with this Sephora Glitz & Glam kit, featuring 8 items and a clutch. This is perfect for a night out or those holiday parties!
  • For the glamour girl--If you want to feel luxurious and glamorous, give this Dolce & Gabbana Lace set a try. This is a collection of nude shades for lips, lids, lashes and nails. This makeup set is such high quality and a really good deal.
  • For those who want a little of everything--You can't go wrong with the Little Love Potions from Benefit. Inside are 10 of their best-sellers. I've owned all of these products before and love them
Row 3
  • For the socialite--I've always said the shade "kitten" by Stila is THE most perfect shade of shadow. And this collection has 5 products and a woven bag. So, so pretty.
  • For the occasional wearer of makeup--I like this kit from Bare Minerals, as it gives such natural, light coverage.
  • For the mascara maniac, aka me--Ulta has a version of this too, and this is a great way to try many brands of mascara.
Row 4
  • For the blush lover, mua, or traveling makeup maven--If you love blush, then you need this LE blush palette from NARS. Inside are blushes, highlight, and bronzer. I recently shared this in my haul. I'm obsessed.
  • For the lipgloss lover--I really like Buxom lip glosses--they're among my favorite.
Hope you enjoyed! Happy Thanksgiving!
