Zero hour. Christmas Eve. You forgot someone. I did it this year and I’m kicking myself hard in the you know where. Obviously you need to pick up something and you want it to be nice but it’s not necessarily going to be right off the recipients wish list. However, it also doesn’t have to be junky or thoughtless. This is now the time to get that pre-packaged gift set – and here are some of my faves from this season (a mix of beauty, bath, body… you name it – it’ll cover someone on your list):
IT Cosmetics. You can basically buy anything from this brand and it’s a winner. They have some beautiful gift sets including this Buki Brush Set* ($48.00, exclusive to QVC) as well as other limited holiday kits and brush kits (see more on Top 9 Luxury Beauty Buys).
Fresh. They are so on point with gift sets this year. Sugar Legends is my fave but if you have a skincare lover you need to get them The Mask Bar* ($108, check in store for availability) or any of the other ones still available online. All are great products and a great value!
Murad. This brand hosts some of my favorite skincare products like the Clarifying Cleanser and Makeup Removal Wipes. Now they have a Youth Builder Bodycare Preview Kit* ($18.00 // Murad) that I’m loving just as much as the skincare! The set is a great price and the perfect gift for a skincare lover.
BITE Beauty. If you love the Agave Lip Mask (which
most all do) you’ll definitely want to gift yourself and those you forgot love with the Lip Love Kit ( $36.00 $25.00 // Sephora). This is currently on sale at Sephora for $25.00 (along with many other products) and you can get another 20% off of the sale price with code EXTRAROUGE (use it now if you’re VIB Rouge) or EXTRA20 (Dec 25-Jan1).
Also, subscription boxes are where it’s at. Everyone loves getting mail every single month and the boxes available cover all budgets and all genres. Here are some of my faves for beauty/fashion:
- Glossybox* ($21/month – reviews)
- POPSUGAR Must Have* ($39.95/month – reviews)
- ipsy ($10/month – reviews)
- Beauty Box 5* ($12/month – reviews)
- Birchbox ($10/month – reviews)
- Scentbird* ($14.95/month – reviews)
- Wantable ($36/month – reviews)
Have a Happy Holiday!

I’d gladly take the IT brushes. I think giving a subscription would be a great last minute gift.

I finished up my shopping, last night. Found a whole pile of the Tarte Away Oui Go sets at my local Ulta and snagged one for my SIL. I hope that she likes it as much as I do. 😀 I lied… I still need to get a last little something for the hubbs… he is being closed mouthed about what he wants. As usual. Maybe I’ll just slide him some cash and let him get whatever catches his eye.
