(Psst, they make excellent gifts for socially distant Secret Santa celebrations, too.) Just add a festive ribbon, and you’re set.
Paul & Joe Lipstick Case 048
This is the one lipstick case that any self-respecting cat lover cannot live without. Paul & Joe’s adorable collection of cases (many of which feature founder Sophie Mechaly’s own feline friends, Nounette and Gipsy) can be mixed-and-matched with any of their nourishing lipstick refills. If you’re not sure about your giftee’s go-to color, we suggest Le Marais — it’s a subtle berry kiss that’s perfect for the holidays.
Christophe Robin Healthy Glow Ritual Gift Set
Help them ring in the new year with their healthiest hair ever, thanks to Christophe Robin’s Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt and Hydrating Melting Mask with Aloe Vera. The first step in the set detoxes and exfoliates the scalp (like a next-level shampoo), while the follow-up hair mask leaves hair silky-smooth and shiny.
Eyeko Spellbound Shimmer Eye Set
This set by Eyeko brings the holiday drama in the very best way. Complete with Galactic Lid Gloss, Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner, and the brand’s caffeine-enhanced Lash Alert Mascara, it’ll make even a New Year’s Eve spent at home feel like a party.
Take My Face Off Mitty Snowman
Take My Face Off has come up with an adorably eco-friendly set that practically begs to be snuggled into a stocking this holiday season. The Mitty Snowman (a.k.a. “SnowMitty”) is a washable replacement for wasteful cotton balls and wipes made from super-soft, luxe Korean polyester that truly lasts. It removes makeup without tugging at delicate skin, leaving complexions so fresh and so clean. All your giftee needs to do is add their favorite cleanser, and voilà.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask Berry
This powerful little pink pot is like the best face mask ever — but for lips. The antioxidant-rich ingredients (including the brand’s signature Moisture Wrap technology) go to work overnight to reveal hydrated, smooth, supple lips the moment they wake up. Pair it with one of our favorite lipstick or lip balms for a coordinated DIY set.
Epicuren Discovery French Lavender After Bath
Epicuren’s obsession-worthy moisturizers are crafted with supremely nourishing ingredients (such as kukui nut seed oil, niacinamide, and biotin) for a post-bath or shower lotion that sinks in quickly and keeps skin hydrated for hours. This relaxing lavender scent is ideal for evening use, while their orange blossom and coconut scents are irresistible any time of day.
Smith & Cult Decadent Nostalgia Set
Add a little sparkle to their season with Smith & Cult’s Decadent Nostalgia set, complete with a nail file, deep Bordeaux hue “Lovers Creep,” and rose gold foil polish “1972” (all bundled in a luxe velvet bag). The best part? Smith & Cult’s polishes are vegan and “8-free,” meaning they’re formulated without eight of the most toxic ingredients typically found in nail polish.
Purlisse Green Tea + Vitamin C Brightening Sheet Mask
These masks by Asian-inspired skincare line, Purlisse are exactly what the doctor ordered after 2020 — soothing, brightening, and even anti-aging (because, honestly, this year shouldn’t count).
