19 Luxurious Beauty Gifts That'll Actually Upgrade Their Routine

Ditch the cheap gift sets for something truly worthwhile.

Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!

1. A Clinique gift set with a serum to smooth fine lines, an eye treatment to tackle crows feet, and a moisturizer to tighten and plump. It's basically a facelift in a box.

2. A four-piece Glossier shower set, because it's time for them to ditch their drugstore body wash and treat their skin to something they'll actually look forward to using.

3. Or a set of four bestsellers hand-picked by Glossier's CEO that they can easily incorporate into their skin care and makeup routines.

4. A bottle of La Mer Créme de la Mer Moisturizer, which if you couldn't tell from its fancy name, is basically the holy grail of facial moisturizers.

5. A Fenty Skin set featuring all four products that launched this year, because who wouldn't want to receive the gift of Rihanna-approved skin?

Bottles of Fenty Skin Hydra Visor Moisturizer, Total Cleans'r, Fat Water Toner and Instant Reset Overnight Gel-Cream

6. The Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler, which is pricey, but is also the hair tool to end all hair tools. They'll be able to create bouncy curls, smooth waves, and dry their hair without using extreme heat.

7. A pillowcase that feels silky smooth to the touch — because it's literally made with silk. The smooth texture means their skin will stay protected from fine lines and wrinkles while they sleep, and they'll always wake up with smooth, frizz-free hair.

8. A four-piece set from Shiseido featuring a full-size firming serum and three sample sizes to help build up their routine.

9. An SK-II gift set so they can finally try the wildly popular Pietra Essence that people rave about for its ability to even skin tone and smooth out uneven texture.

10. A brightening primer by Yves Saint Laurent that uses apricot kernel and rice bran oils to provide a radiant finish on any skin tone.

11. A lip conditioner that's super creamy thanks to the inclusion of avocado oil and shea butter. They'll want it on them at all times, so it might just be the one lip balm they miraculously never lose.

12. A Pat McGrath palette filled with 18 creamy eye shadows, featuring shimmery purples and vibrant greens that are perfect for the holidays and subtle matte hues that they'll reach for all year long.
