It’s finally that time of year. Bring on the JOY of the holidays I say!
After the hoops that 2020 has put us through, I think the holidays are going to be the bright spot we need to finish out this year on a high note! So bring on the sparkle, the tinsel, the decorations, the music, the food, the trees…I’m here for ALL OF IT!!
The saying, “It’s better to give, than to receive,” has never felt more true. I mean is there anything more fulfilling than giving someone a gift they weren’t expecting and then seeing the smile it puts on their face?? It’s my favorite feeling.
I usually do a holiday gift-giving post once a year closer to December. BUT this year I’m actually doing this one further in advance than usual.
Start Crossing Off That Gift List Ladies!
I’m doing this gift guide earlier for slightly selfish reasons because I have made myself a promise that I am NOT waiting until the last minute to buy gifts for my loved ones this year! This is because it creates unwanted stress on me, that could easily be avoided by planning and buying ahead. I figured by sharing my beauty gift picks early, it will encourage ME and YOU to go ahead and start crossing off people from our lists!
If you’re overwhelmed with what to buy for that beauty obsessed daughter, mother, bestie, etc, I have done some leg work for you. The big perk of this post is that all of my picks are under $50 and MAKEUP focused because, well, holiday budgets are REAL.
Here are 10 gorgeous gift ideas from around the web. Snatch them up before December 25th comes knocking…
