There seems to be a small pool of gifts to give a beauty lover: a neutral eyeshadow palette, a brush set, lipstick, a jade roller. Instead, we rounded up unique, exciting beauty gifts that are sure to have the recipient at their vanity in no time. The top gadgets, functional makeup bags, luxurious skincare, and deals you can't miss round out a new crop of gifts for the beauty obsessed in your life that'll have them thanking you until next year.

The Everygirl’s gift guide is curated by our editorial team with some items hand-picked by editors from our sponsors. If you buy something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission, at no cost to you. As always, we only choose items we genuinely love, use, have purchased ourselves, or recommend.
