You know the type—they're the person who obsesses over the latest hair tool launches, owns 20 different red lipsticks (we get it, not all red shades are created equal), and has a skincare stash that rivals that of a Sephora. When it comes to finding a holiday gift for this friend/family member/S.O. there are tons—and we mean tons—of beauty gifts to choose from. You can go the route of big-ticket tools and devices, choose from ultra-curated skincare gifts, explore an abundance of makeup gifts, or nab a scent from our collection of fragrance gift sets. One thing for certain; a beauty gift is a chic way of saying, "You're fabulous."
