From serums and scrubs to award-winning elixirs, these are the beauty gifts we're hoping to be gifted sometime soon.


We all have that one person in our life who is an absolute beauty guru — they always know about the latest products, can perfectly apply winged eyeliner, and have a beauty routine that would put a Hollywood starlet to shame. But when it comes to finding the perfect gift for them, it can be a challenge to know where to start.

Taking the guesswork out of gifting, we've scoured the market to bring you the ultimate guide to the best beauty gifts for the makeup maven in your life. From luxurious skincare sets to high-tech beauty gadgets, we've got something for every budget and every beauty need. 

Read on for our top picks for the best beauty gifts we're buying (and adding to wish lists of our own) for our nearest and dearest.
