Top Beauty Gift Ideas for the Beauty Guru

Top Beauty Gift Ideas for the Beauty Guru by popular Washington D.C. life and style blogger, Alicia Tenise: image of a woman sitting on the floor with various beauty products.

Can you believe that we’re only 2.5 weeks away from Christmas? I definitely can’t! Admittedly, I’ve procrastinated this year, and I am just now starting the bulk of my shopping. You would think that a person who puts gift guides together as part of her job would knock out her holiday shopping pretty fast, right? Welp, sadly that’s not the case!

Procrastination aside, I’ve been looking forward to this beauty gift ideas guide for a while. I’ve had the chance to try out a ton of beauty products this year, and I wanted to round up the favorites that I think would make for the perfect beauty gift ideas. Tom surprised me with a Nume Curling Wand Set last Christmas, and it has been in heavy rotation ever since. I love that it came with multiple barrels, and it heats up incredibly fast, and I’ve been able to travel with it and use it internationally without any issues. I use the 1″ barrel the most if you only have the budget for one barrel instead of the full set.

Large Cosmetics Case | Blow-Dryer Brush | Travel Brush Set
Drunk Elephant Set | Moroccan Oil Hydration Set
Viktor & Rolf Fragrance | Beautyblender Set | Jade Roller

I also had the opportunity to try out the Drybar The Brush Crush Heated Straightening Brush at NYFW a few months ago, and it worked miracles — I ended up snagging one for myself! I struggled to find products that could get my hair super sleek and straight, and this tool was just what I needed. Use the brush to straighten your hair and use a flat iron to style it to perfection.

For makeup, I love to create looks with the new Naked Cherry Palette, and I think the mini ornament version of their All Nighter Setting Spray would be a perfect stocking stuffer. IT Cosmetics brushes have been a favorite of mine for years (I only buy their brushes at this point!), and I think this travel gift set would be a big hit. I also got a Vera Bradley Travel Organizer over the summer, and I never travel without it: it holds all of my makeup and skincare products with ease while I’m on the road and is super durable. I travel at least once a week and I am thrilled with the quality of this organizer!

As far as skincare is concerned, my Caudalie masks are some of my favorites — and I think this mask trio would make for the perfect stocking stuffer. Jade rollers are also all the rage in the beauty world and are the ideal affordable gift pick. Lastly, this Moroccanoil 10-Year Anniversary Collection Set contains their best selling products for hair and body and these products are game-changing!
