The Perfect Beauty Gift to Give a Friend

I struggle with buying gifts for people.

I’m a practical gift-giver, almost always defaulting to a gift card. That may be because I like to shop and I like to use gift cards, but I’ve found that they are quite boring compared to a thoughtful gift.

So after racking my brain for a few days on a gift to get for a friend, I realized that the answer was right in front of me. A lovely set of beauty products is such a nice thing to receive and is usually one of those things women don’t buy for themselves. It’s a bit of a splurge, or can be, so that makes it a perfect gift.

I’ve scoured the internet and gathered 10 of my top choices for beauty gifts for the women in your life. We’ve only got a few short months until Christmas, so start thinking about that as you browse!
