I hope you enjoyed my previous gift posts: Makeup & Beauty Gift Ideas for Every Beauty Level and Beauty, Geek and Candy Box Gift Ideas for Everyone on Your List.
I am fond of my girly glam girls because they are easy to shop for. K. could use a new eyeshadow palette, E. likes lipsticks, etc. The hardest part is making sure I don’t get them something they already have, but that’s what gift receipts are for.
Surprisingly, most of my girl friends don’t wear makeup or only wear a couple of specific products from very distinct brands. They don’t like variety, and to a beauty blogger, that’s almost heartbreaking. Almost.
As I’m going through the Sephora website and noticing I’m only 200 points away from renewing my VIB Rouge membership, I scoured the website top to bottom to find gifts for my non-beauty loving friends. Luckily, I scored for several people on my list. Call it selfish since I’m trying to build up my points, but truth is if I didn’t find anything, I would have wildly spent the $200 on myself and bought them Apple gift cards. Luck [and determination] was on my side.
My friend C. is a big fan of hiking. She loves being outdoors and is very much into fitness. This Supergoop giftset is the perfect gift for an outdoorsy chick like her.
Another alternative to the Supergoop! set is this mineral one by Coola. It contains 4 TSA approved products, ready to be gifted to any beach-loving or hike-loving person.
Even if your friends don’t like makeup, who can say no to a gorgeous perfume sampler? The Sephora Favorites Perfume Sampler contains a bunch of different scents and a certificate for one full size bottle of their fave.
Receiving my Foreo changed my skin care game. You don’t have to gift your friend a $200 skin care tool, but there are plenty of other less expensive ones that work wonders. This includes the Foreo Play, which lasts for about 100 uses.
If she’s a fan of microdermabrasion treatments, the PMD Personal Microderm tool might be her favorite gift. It is an “at-home skincare tool that provides the same brilliant results as professional, in-office microdermabrasion treatments.”
My friend Andi wishes she had the time to straighten her hair every day. A straightening hair brush can do the work of a flat iron in less time.
