The holiday season is without a doubt the most exciting time of year to be a beauty lover, thanks to all the beauty gifts and sets.
Starting all the way back in early October, our favorite beauty brands begin to release their holiday collections, from 25 day beauty-filled advent calendars to curated gift sets of their best skincare and makeup products. (It’s a thing of beauty… literally.)
But because there are so many amazing beauty collaborations and collections released during the holidays, it can be difficult for gift givers to narrow down which beauty picks would be perfect for that special someone in their life, whether that person is a beauty expert or just starting to get into makeup.
So, to help you check off your gift list, here are 10 of Jewel’s favorite beauty gifts* for everyone on your shopping list this holiday season:

1. Luxe Ultime Ambre Vanille Luxe Body Collection by Laura Mercier
When it comes to self-care and relaxation, there is nothing that hits the spot more than a rich, luxurious bath with all the fixings — bubbles, bath crème, lush body wash, and rich scents of vanilla and brown sugar. This four-piece collection from Laura Mercier comes with all of this and more, creating the perfect collection for your loved one to create their own opulent spa night at home.
2. The Cosmetics Fridge by Cosmo
$100, Urban Outfitters
One big tech trend in the beauty world this year is the cosmetic fridge. And no, we’re not talking about a mini fridge that goes in your beauty room for when you want to have mimosas when getting ready on Saturday night. (Although, how great does that sound?!) The Cosmo Cosmetics Fridge was specifically created to store beauty items that work best when chilled, like facial rollers, serums, eye gels, sheet masks, and more. Plus, it’s looks really cute on a beauty vanity.
3. Greek Brightening Essentials Holiday Set by Korres
Winter weather is notorious for bringing dry, dull skin with it. But this set of award-winning, illuminating skincare products from Korres, including a cleanser, serum, moisturizer, and sleeping facial, can help to bring a little bit of life back to your skin. The Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial specifically is the skincare favorite of our Jewel Social Media Manager, Rilee. “I put this on before I head to bed (after washing my face), and it’s amazing how even and refreshed my skin looks when I wake up in the morning. It does all the work while I sleep!”
4. Limited Edition Filmstar Bronze & Glow Highlighter & Brush Kit by Charlotte Tilbury
$75, Charlotte Tilbury
This gorgeous face powder set is about as magical and glamorous as it gets when it comes to beauty gifts. Featuring the best selling Filmstar Bronze & Glow golden highlighter and sun-kissed bronzer by Charlotte Tilbury, this kit is perfect for beauty lovers who love the “no makeup” makeup look but want a little extra glow. Plus, the set comes with a matching face brush and is encased in a limited edition, starburst design that is embellished with crystals from Swarovski® — making it a beautiful gift that shines even without gift wrap.
5. Foreo Luna 3 by Foreo
Another hot tech holiday gift you can give to beauty lovers this season is a tech tool that will change their skin routine for the (much, much) better. The sonic cleansers by Foreo, including their new Luna 3 model, were designed to increase circulation in your skin, as well as exfoliate your skin without pulling on it. This latest model by Foreo sends 8,000 T-Sonic™ pulsations per minute into your pores to clean your face better than pretty much anything else on the planet. Fancy, huh?
6. ClarinsMen Hydration Kit by Clarins
Skincare sets are also a great idea for the guy in your life, especially when they come packed with a start-to-finish skincare routine that they don’t have to think twice about. This ClarinsMen Hydration Kit is an awesome 5-piece grooming set that promotes ultra-smooth, hydrated skin for all skin types. It has everything a guy needs in their basic skincare routine — face wash, shampoo & shower wash, moisture balm, shave ease oil, and even a sharp toiletry bag to store it all in.
7. Merry Masking Face Mask Set from Kiehl’s
For the person in your life who is really into skincare, a lavish face mask is always one of our favorite beauty gifts. This three mask set of nature-inspired face masks from Kiehl’s makes for the most amazing winter night in. (Just picture laying around, sipping eggnog next to the fire while enjoying a Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Mask. Ahh… sounds like the perfect gift.)
8. Luxe Gems Jewel-Toned Eye Shadow Palette by Bobbi Brown
$75, Bobbi Brown
Once again, we promise we didn’t pick this Gems Eye Shadow Palette just for the name. Instead, we did because of the gorgeous jewel tones and stunning gold starburst packaging. This eye palette by Bobbi Brown features seven ultra-blendable chromatic pigments that have a multidimensional, 3D metallic finish that are perfect for creating a rich, smokey night-out look.
9. Lip Glorifier Lip Balm by Clé de Peau Beauté
$45, Clé de Peau Beauté
Lip balms are a go-to stocking stuffer in our world, mostly due to the cold, winter weather here in Detroit that makes dry lips a very real thing. But this Lip Glorifier by Clé de Peau Beauté is so much more than a typical lip balm. This luxurious lip tint not only restores softness and a dewy look to the lips, but it also adds a hint of rosiness in response to the moisture level of your lips. This would be the perfect gift for anyone just getting into makeup, or even for a long-time beauty lover looking for a new winter handbag staple.
10. 5-Piece Cologne Collection by Jo Malone London
$115, Saks Fifth Avenue
Fragrance is always a wonderful gift to give to someone who might not splurge on it themselves. However, it’s also such a personal choice that it’s hard to decide which fragrance to gift. Luckily, this beautiful 5-piece collection from Jo Malone London gives the gift of choice, along with five of their best-selling scents. Your recipient can choose from fan favorite scents like Lime Basil & Mandarin, English Pear & Freesia, Honeysuckle & Davana, Peony & Blush Suede, or Wood Sage & Sea Salt (our personal fav) — or they can layer combinations to create their own signature scent.
