With Christmas only 5 days away, I wanted to share a few last-minute beauty gift ideas that are perfect for anyone on your holiday gifting list! From candle sets to lip balms under $10 – this beauty gift guide has it all. Best off, most of the items featured can be picked up your local Shoppers Drug Mart or reserved for online pickup!
Shoppers Drug Mart has a host of the best beauty gift ideas, including some new and exciting brands! Shoppers Drug Mart now carries Buxom, ItCosmetics and Nest Fragrances. My absolute favourite Nest Fragrances scent is Rose Oud Noir, and this luxurious large candle is a wonderful gift! I’m so excited that they’re available at Shoppers Drug Mart now.
Another classic gift idea is a bottle of perfume, and Valentino’s newest Voce Viva perfume is very beautiful for any woman, with notes of Italian bergamot, orange blossom absolute and crystal moss accord. This perfume and hundreds of others are available at your local Shoppers, and if you can’t decide, they also offer a Fragrance Sampler & Certificate, so that your recipient can pick out their favourite scent! They also have this option for men, which makes a great gift for dads and boyfriends alike.
Shoppers Drug Mart also stocks some amazing beauty gift sets for stocking stuffers including a Burt’s Bees lipbalm set and Quo Beauty Christmas crackers that are so fun to open on Christmas! I plan on gifting them to the women in my life so we can all virtually pop them on Christmas Day!
For the holiday season, Nest New York has some incredible gift sets and holiday scents. A classic reed diffuser makes a wonderful virtual hostess gift! I keep the Blue Cypress & Snow Reed Diffuser in my living room because the scent is so powerful, and I love the elegant glass bottle with frosted stripes. They are a sleek unisex design too, so they’re great for anyone.
The Nest New York Hearth Classic Candle is very rich, indulgent and masculine! I love this scent and can totally picture myself enjoying this scent by the fire at the cottage soon! I also love the gold etched glass holder – I plan on keeping it to store makeup brushes when it’s done too.
Last but not least, the Nest New York Festive Votive Trio candle set features an irresistible trio of scented candles including: Holiday, Blue Cypress & Snow and Birchwood Pine (my personal fave of the three). These three candles come wrapped in a beautiful box – mine is actually sitting under my tree, it’s so gorgeous!
I have been using Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for years, and was so excited to discover their holiday gift sets. The Icons set is a great value and features two of my favourites: the Drying Lotion for zapping breakouts and the Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater to keep your skin soothed and hydrated during dry winters! This one is on sale for under $20 too, so you can’t go wrong with this stocking stuffer!
For an even larger set, the Dewy Skin Collection features some of Mario Badescu’s classics including the lip balm and Witch Hazel and Rosewater Toner. It’s a total steal for only $36.50!
The Body Shop has some INCREDIBLE gift sets for the holidays. Easily some of the Best Beauty Gift Ideas for the holidays, with wonderful stocking stuffers around $10! My favourites include the Protecting Moringa Big Gift Box (which includes a body butter, body mist, loofah, hand cream and more!). I am also obsessed with the Winter Jasmine Duo is only $10 and features an adorable mint green loofah, body butter and body scrub. And of course the handcream is a stocking stuffer you can’t go wrong with!
One of my fave haircare brands, Briogeo has an awesome gift set, Detox + Restore Kit which features their Scalp Revival Scalp Scrub Shampoo + Don’t Despair Repair Hair Mask which I always keep in my haircare rotation. The scalp shampoo is amazing and leaves your scalp all tingly. I highly recommend using this one with a scalp scrubber to work it in deep. The Don’t Despair Repair Hair Mask is one of my favourite treatments and leaves my hair so silky and soft! This is perfect for anyone who uses hot tools especially – it’s a weekly ritual for me between my regular conditioner.
Quo Beauty from Shoppers Drug Mart also has some incredible beauty sets out for Christmas. From makeup brushes to gel eye patches to adorable headbands and lip balms. I love that the new Quo Beauty line is also now Cruelty Free bunny certified! It’s incredible to see an in-house drugstore brand make this leap, and the packaging is super cute! I will be giving away a special bundle on my Instagram account, so stay tuned!
I hope you enjoyed this roundup of the best beauty gift ideas for Christmas 2020! Now that we’re all spending more time at home, I love gifts that indulge in self care. Whether it’s a rich Nest candle or a comforting tube of hand cream, there are so many options for anyone!
