Faced with buying a Christmas gift for someone obsessed with beauty/skincare/makeup, etc? Worry not! There are so many wonderful options available that you can get for someone that will be universally loved by people of all skin types. Here are some great makeup and skincare Christmas gift ideas for the beauty obsessed on your list.
These fabulous gifts are all cruelty free and most are natural and organic as well. They will all be greatly appreciated by anyone who loves beauty. Plus, having tested most of these myself, I can attest to the fact they they are great for sensitive skinned beauties, too!
Makeup Gift Ideas
Is your giftee in love with makeup? Eyeshadow palettes, mascaras, and nail polish are great gift ideas, since you don’t have to worry about whether the shade will be right for them. Foundation or powder are probably best to avoid, since the chance of you picking the correct shade is practically zero (unless you already know which one to get).
The Urban Decay Naked palettes are all fantastic, and any beauty lover with adore you forever if you get them one. The Too Faced Chocolate Bar and tartelette palettes are excellent choices as well. These palettes all contain relatively neutral colours that will look great on any skintone.
Skincare Gift Ideas
Gifting skincare can be a difficult proposition, especially if you don’t know what your giftee’s skin type is. However, there are some products that are so universally adored that anyone can, and will, use them and love them.
Masks are great gift options since everyone could use some brightening or exfoliation, like you can get from Herbivore’s Blue Tansy AHA + BHA and Brightening masks. Herbivore’s Blue Clay Cleansing Bar is also a great stocking stuffer since it’s a reasonable price and will be effective for all skin types.
If you’re looking for some great natural, organic options then Kahina Giving Beauty and Tata Harper have some gorgeous gift sets. Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Mask is one of my favourites. May Lindstrom’s The Blue Cocoon is also an amazing gift for anyone since the solid blue balm is super hydrating and calming without actually being too heavy on sensitive or breakout prone skin. Another great balm-style product is Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm. It is super hydrating, but the natural oils and waxes it contains won’t clog pores. If your gift list has a super nerd on it, then they will love this set from NIOD. NIOD is one of the brands from Deciem Labs (based in Toronto) and all their products are very scientifically advanced and great for sensitive skin since they are formulated without irritants or fragrances.
Bath and Body Gift Ideas
Bath salts, body scrubs, lotions, and butters are awesome Christmas gifts. I personally love giving these types of presents since everyone is always so busy and lives can get hectic, especially over the holiday season. So these types of gifts force people to relax, take a time out, and really take care of themselves. Because when you take care of yourself, you can better care for others.
Herbivore makes some great bath and body options (I particularly like their Calm and Detox bath salts), as do One Love Organics and Josie Maran. Get a few different products from a few different brands and make a gift basket for someone, this is a great gift for anyone who tends to neglect themselves due to their busy schedule!
I hope these makeup and skincare Christmas gift ideas help you to find the perfect Christmas gift for your beauty obsessed recipient!
