1. DYSON Hair Dryer // 2. COWSHED Bath & Body Oil // 3. ESTÉE LAUDER Mask // 4. NARS Lipstick // 5. NARS Palette

One of my favorite gifts to give (and receive!) are beauty buys. They’re an indulgence that a lot of people don’t buy for themselves which makes giving them all the more fun. Whether it’s a single bottle of nail polish, a skin-saving face mask, or a complete eyeshadow palette, they’re the kind of gifts that always feel like such a treat.  Here, four of my favorite beauty buys to stuff in their stocking this year.

  1. If you’re going to go big, go for the Dyson Hair Dryer. I can honestly say that I never thought I would recommend gifting a hair dryer, but that was before the Dyson. This hair dryer is amazing. It dries hair in a flash and does it without all the noise. It’s also incredibly lightweight which makes drying hair feel likes less of a workout. It’s worth the splurge.
  2.  I love all things Cowshed. This line makes some of the most fantastic all natural, Paraben-free skincare products. If you have a friend who loves to take baths, their oils are a perfect present. This one is my personal favorite. The hand wash would make a great hostess gift, too!
  3. One of my favorite gifts to give my girlfriends is a great lipstick. It’s the ideal stocking stuffer. In the past, my go-to has been Nars’ “Heat Wave.” It’s one of my all-time favorite shades of red.
  4. You can’t go wrong with one of Nars’ amazing color palettes. Ulta has a great selection with lots of options. My personal favorite is this cheek palette. It’s filled with the best of the basics – two highlighters, bronzer, and a couple of blush colors. This trio palette is another great option.
