Including a buncha stylish finds, beauty products, and accessories.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

What a year! The holidays are finally here! And while we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so we suggest shopping as early as you can.

Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

1. A remarkably glamorous padded and embellished headband they'll be snapping at all angles to catch its shine. That twinkly Insta filter that makes every object glimmer? Rumor has it, it was based off of this *exact* headband.

2. A bottle of Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional Super Setter spray, because no selfie is set without a lightweight, waterproof mist that secures makeup and lasts up to 16 hours *with* the added benefit of blurring pores for a satin-soft complexion. AKA they NEED this.

3. A gold-plated layered paperclip necklace complete with an initial coin pendant that will make anyone who receives it smile with glee. Personal, trendy, and perfect to add to their weekly photo buffet.

4. L’Oréal Lamellar Hair Treatment you can plop in their stocking with pride because this works like a treat in eight seconds, yes, SECONDS to transform straight and curly textures. Taming flyaways so their selfies can remain frizz-free? You, my friend, are a genius!

5. A vibrant faux fur trim coat, the likes of Phoebe Buffay would probably be coveting if she had the opportunity to. This totally 'grammable gem will keep them covered and looking, in a word: phenomenal.

6. A fabulous pair of polarized sunnies in a modern-day cat-eye shape (that also have UV protection!). So they can block the rays and accessorize their car selfie with something that looks ultra sophisticated *and* keeps their peepers safe.

7. An expensive-looking cropped sweater that'll make for a...forgive me lord for I'm about to pun...rawresome OOTD post. Accompany this with a gift tag that reads: "A gift for you and your black jeans."

8. Freck Beauty Slimelight giftable for the beauty enthusiast who's ready to redefine the meaning of the word "highlighter." This out-of-this-world pearlescent formula has a cream-like consistency that can be stroked across cheekbones for a strobe-like glow, dabbed around lids for a pop of shimmer, or mixed it in with a moisturizer for a look that'll re-energize their selfie game.

9. A unique and multi-functional cross-body so convenient, they can pack as much or as little as they want since it's essentially three bags in one! Holding all their essentials for a photoshoot day without forgoing their great style? Now that's a gift in and of itself.

10. A Glossier beauty set complete with not one, but THREE holy grails to make any Glossier stan giddy. Not only will their lashes, brows, *and* cheeks look picture perfect, but so will the bag that all of these goodies come in.

11. And perhaps some Glossier Wowder you can toss in as an add-on to soften shine as the final step in curating their look (no Insta filter required). I, for one, cannot stop bragging about its ability to blur pores because the moment this light powder hits, *poof* skin appears smoother and foundation stays put well into the night.

12. A collection of sheer socks so darling, they'll be proud to have them peek through their boots and loafers in their next mirror selfie. It's time they upgraded those dingy mismatched pairs for a whimsical set that'll look just glorious all year long.

13. A cutesy cropped cardigan that looks as sweet as a lollipop. They can pair it with so many bottoms that they already own and post their OOTD with a candy-filled emoji caption. No words necessary.

14. E.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation disguises blemishes at a shockingly affordable price and with a semi-matte, oil-free finish. For the friend who's looking for a quick fix to even out their skin for picture day, gift them this as it offers coverage while still allowing their lovely, natural glow to shine through.

15. A Latorice nail dip powder gift kit so when they snap their mirror selfies they can do so without any unsightly chips. This set provides them with the kind of staying power one could only dream of having for a fresh, fancy mani. This chip- and smudge-resistant dipping system is easy to do at home *and* contains vitamin E and calcium to strengthen the nail bed. Win-win, baby.

16. The TikTok famous BYO Blush Oil, which magically reacts to the pH of skin and actually changes color to adjust to different tones! That means everyone who uses it (incl. your lucky recipient) will have their own unique shade of blush. Plus, its feather-like formula withstands the heat, never feels greasy, and won't clog precious pores.

17. An adorably pictureworthy wool blend beret, giftable for anyone who's picked up a style note or two from the likes of Emily in Paris. Admittedly, I totally indulged in this guilty pleasure and will most likely take a peek at season two... I mean the fashion alone makes it worth a watch...

18. Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint, a best seller because it becomes one with your skin with a buildable formula that offers a soft pigment and won't leave your recipient with a cracked kisser. It comes with a precision applicator that moves with the natural shape of lips, so, humblebrag...applying signature shades for festive pics just got even easier.

19. A bottle of thermal color-changing nail polish that has astounded over 1,000 reviewers with its magical qualities. This vegan and cruelty-free formula alters its appearance based on temperature, so they can get two looks for the price of one! Now that's worth documenting on le feed.

20. A stunning jade roller and Gua Sha giftable set invented to level up their skincare routine and hit the accelerate button on serums' and oils' usual qualities. This baby soothes and targets fine lines so they can look and feel their best (even when the flash goes off!).

21. Pearl drop huggie earrings adorned with an ear cuff that'll illuminate the twinkle in their eye as soon as they open it. They never used to be someone who wore their hair up in pics, but now thanks these sparklers their updo's just got abundantly more glam.

22. Elizabeth Mott Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer, the practical gift that laughs in the face of oily lids and creases, since its paraben-free formula features a sebum-controlling powder that locks in eyeshadow and liner. Translation: their before-work selfie will look *just* as flawless as their clocking-out one.

23. One Size 24-Hour Liquid Eyeliner for the pal who slays their cat-eye flicks every single time. To you, they're a true inspiration so their handiwork deserves to be rewarded. Enter: The pen that's waterproof, smudge-proof...oh, and like your ever-reliable BFF, will *never* flake.

24. A glorious sequin shirt snappable at New Years, birthdays, work events... I could go on, but I think there's a better use of your time like carting this for your fashionable bestie.

25. Hot Tools One-Step Blow-Drying Brush so glorious, it handles two jobs in one and will cut their routine in half so they can achieve silky-smooth, frizz-free locks with less drying time. And! This tool has three different settings (cool, low, and high) and a 24-karat gold finish so they can get Pinterest-worthy results with something that'll make them feel like royalty.

26. Bread Beauty Hair-Mask to envelop natural curls in thick, cloudlike softness without weighing strands down. Their hair will now be THE thirst trap, thanks to Australian Kakadu plum and starflower oil that, together, reinforce hair follicles — which means less breakage and more velvety-soft texture. A holiday miracle, TBH.

27. A backless lace bodysuit capable of making any recipient swoon. This Insta-worthy number is totally giftable, but just make sure they wear a coat when it's cold out — odds are they won't want to cover this up ever, even in freezing temps.
