Beauty gift sets are ideal holiday gifts: They’re easy to pick up last minute (hello, Sephora!), have beautiful packaging, and are something you’d never buy yourself. But what if your special someone isn’t into spending hours putting on makeup or doing their hair? We feel them. That’s why we’ve pulled together 10 beauty gifts—from holiday sets to tools—that’ll speed up, simplify, or enhance their low-key routine.
Wander Beauty Eye-Conic Kit
This kit comes with five hard-working products that make getting ready to go out a breeze: a gel eyeliner that also acts as an eye shadow; mascara that doubles as a lash curler; a pencil that works on eyes, lips, and brows; and two liquid eye shadows that can be used in a million different ways.
Verb Style Messy, Style Easy
If their hair care routine is nothing more than shampoo-and-condition, introduce them to these three worthwhile additions (hair spray, sea spray, and dry shampoo) from an under-the-radar brand.
TenOverTen On-the-Go Nail Care Essentials
For the person who thinks manicures are a waste of time. This minimal kit will keep their nails healthy and happy with a rose cuticle oil, biodegradable polish-remover wipes, a strengthening base coat, and a chip-resistant top coat.
Kiss Gold Edition Comb Straightener
This straightener styles hair in half the time and does more than just straighten: It can lift roots, style bangs, add volume, whatever. And how great is that price tag?
Ursa Major The Minimalist Skin Care Set
This natural skin care brand packaged together some of its best products to create a set that’s simple but also ultra-effective.
Kérastase Core Collection Gift Sets
Kérastase is pretty much a universally loved brand—but it’s also a pretty penny, so chances are your giftee doesn’t splurge on it regularly. Treat them to one of Kérastase’s pretty holiday gift sets.
Ouai To-Go Kit
These mini products will come in handy while your recipient is on the go. The foam-based dry shampoo cleanses in a pinch, the wave spray adds a bit of oomph, and the hair oil keeps flyaways in check.
InStyler Max Wet to Dry Rotating Iron
There’s no better beauty shortcut than a wet-to-dry styling tool. This popular iron dries hair safely and effectively, without damaging the hair cuticle.
Bite Beauty The Perfect Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick Set
A bold lip goes a long way. Gift them four super-wearable shades in a holiday-appropriate tin.
Dr. Brandt Holiday Glow Kit
This Dr. Brandt kit will revitalize holiday party-weary skin in just three steps. The adorable makeup bag doesn’t hurt either.
