    1. A pack of 15 Etude House sheet masks to ramp up their skincare routine with moisturizing, soothing, firming, and brightening benefits all in one — and if they're a good friend, they'll ask you to sheet mask with them. *hint hint*

    Amazon

    They come in Collagen, Pomegranate, Strawberry, Snail, Manuka Honey, Lemon, Ceraamide, Green Tea, Aloe, Tea Tree, Hyaluronic Acid, Pearl, and Damask Rose. Yaaaaas.

    Promising review: "These sheet masks are so light and thin, but so effective with their essence. The essence isn't sticky at all and there's so much of it that you can apply to your neck, hands, knees, etc., for deep moisturizing. These don't have any irritating ingredients that can trigger sensitive skin and acne, or any parabens either." —Yasmine V.

    Get the pack of 15 from Amazon for $14.99.

    2. A double-ended wing stamp/liner pen that'll foolproof their whole dang morning routines and shave off precious minutes spent trying to draw perfect cat eyes — there's nothing like helping your friends feel like badasses or makeup pros.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Check out how a BuzzFeed editor uses a v similar one to create the ~perfect~ cat eye!

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying this isn't my first cat eye rodeo. I've tried the taping method, normal liquid liner, plastic winged stamping devices, stencils, all of it! Well, this gem arrived and I immediately had to try it out, all while laughing at how terrible this would probably turn out...but to my surprise I put the left cat eye on first and it was perfect. I thought this was a fluke and did the right eye...again, it came out clean and perfect! I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN ABLE TO DO A CAT EYE IN UNDER 10 MINUTES, LET ALONE THE TWO MINUTES THIS TOOK TO DO! There were no sloppy streaks that I had to touch up or anything you would expect. Just a clean crisp line. I can now do a cat eye EVERY day and look/feel like a badass. Everyone can think I spend hours doing my makeup in the morning." —LadyMeow

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three sizes).

    3. A L'Occitane shea butter holiday ornament set for, you guessed it, ~buttery soft~ skin — no matter how harsh the elements decide to be on their bod. #prettypackaging

    4. An Amika Holiday Perk Up Dry Shampoo Ornament so their hair stays looking salon-fresh even though they've been way too busy to wash their hair in a timely manner.

    Amazon

    Promising review (of the full-size version): "This has to be my favorite dry shampoo. I love the way it smells; it's neither fruity or chemical-y. You have to shake the bottle well before applying, or there will be a whitish hue, and after applying, massage it into your scalp. I’ve found that it really gives me a boost in volume. I seem to get more compliments on my hair when I’ve used this than when my hair is actually clean! I will continue to repurchase." —Tara

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    5. A 10-pack of makeup brushes that'll put a ~gleam~ in their eyes every time they do their makeup — and not to mention, the metallic purple case is super pretty and great for on-the-go touchups.

    Amazon

    This set comes with a powder brush, angled contour brush, foundation brush, nose shadow brush, flat shadow brush, eyeshadow brush, eyebrow brush, lip brush, eyeliner brush, and eyelash-combing brush.

    Promising review: "I am shocked at how good these brushes are — they are pretty and efficient. I have spent this much money on an individual brush before, so I am elated that I got so many for such a great price. They are really soft and my favorite part is that they are made of synthetic materials, so they are cruelty-free. The case is also perfect, because it keeps my brushes clean when I travel, which keeps my face clean and prevents any acne breakouts (much better than the ziplock bag I was using previously). I definitely recommend these brushes!" —Twin2855

    Get the set of 10 from Amazon for $14.92.

    6. A set of vegan bath bombs to give them an excuse to relax, after they've been running around being the best friend, sibling, child, or significant other and attending to everyone else's needs — and thanks to boatloads of essential oils, they'll step out of the tub with silky smooth skin.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Each bath bomb is packed with organic essential oils like peppermint, sweet orange, lemon, rose, lavender, and citronella essential oils.

    Promising review: "Vegan and organic ingredients! They come individually wrapped in a very cute box (I bought it for myself, but it would make a great gift box). My favorite scents so far are definitely rose and lavender. I don't have a jacuzzi tub or anything fancy, but one bath bomb makes my entire bathroom smell wonderful and my body felt very relaxed after I step out of the tub. I pair this with my essential oils diffuser and it's basically a spa day for me. My skin felt really smooth after the bath. For the price I think it's definitely worth it!" —Shiberu

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $13.59+ (available in five styles).

    7. A Mario Badescu travel or full-sized set with three best-selling and beloved facial sprays: cucumber and green tea, rosewater and herbs, and chamomile and lavender to give their skin a quick refresh or spritz of hydration whenever they need it — yes to 24/7 pampering!

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a pro makeup artist and this palette is better quality than many of higher-end brands. Especially UD, as their palettes are chalky/powdery and have a ton of fallout. I absolutely love CS, their palettes and brushes." —Deanna Leviso

    Get the Revealed Eyeshadow Palettes from Amazon for $17.49+ (available in Revealed, Revealed Smoky Eye, Revealed 2, Revealed 3, and Revealed Matte).

They're infused with aloe vera and Vitamin E to make sure my lips stay moisturized on the go, and I'm really happy they're cruelty free" —Fromgirltogirl

    Amazon

    This set includes face masks in Detoxifying, Exfoliating, Hydrating, and Revitalizing.

    Promising review: "Out of the four masks, the shea chamomile was the best. It hydrated, moisturized, smoothed, and gave my skin a nice glow. I only used about a teaspoon for my whole face (and stored the rest in airtight Tupperware). Left it on for about 15-20 mins, rinsed, let my face dry, applied moisturizer and voila...I was beautiful again!" —Kim

    19. A Tony Moly Tako Pore Blackhead Scrub Stick, which might just be the cutest skincare product they've ever owned — and it might just make blackhead cleaning exciting. Cellulose beads act as a physical exfoliator while a blend of charcoal powder and citric acid chemically exfoliate to clear pores of excess sebum and tighten them up, so they're way less visible to the human eye.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "Here’s the thing: a scrub is never going to solve your blackhead issues long term. But there is truly no other product like this. It’s an amazing quick fix to get your pores unclogged and less noticeable, and once you’ve done that, slap on some retinol/salicylic acid with a moisturizer to prevent those pores from getting nasty again. Adorable packaging, unique product, and it's effective!" —Molly K. Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $9.37.

    20. A twilight and dusk eyeshadow palette that'll take them by surprise when they find out it looks the same as Huda Beauty's Rose Gold Remastered Palette — wait, so it has amazing pigment and payoff at a sixth of the price? Hello, what a steal!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've only had this for about three days and I just can't stop playing with all the colors. OMG, are the mattes pigmented!! Never have I seen such great mattes in a cheap palette — they're even hard to find in pricier palettes. So beautiful and versatile. It's a collection of my FAVORITE shades and I couldn't be happier!" —Merkury Volkanic

    Get it from Amazon for $11.

    21. A Tweexy nail polish holder to help them achieve a gorgeous, at-home manicure they won't mess up within five minutes for once in their lives — and while you're at it, pick one up for yourself because you deserve the same!

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? Definitely helps with DIY nail projects. When I had no idea this polish holder existed, I tried to find creative ways to hold my polish, so that it would be in a convenient spot. However, I never found that really worked for me, or felt comfortable. This holder holds all of my nail polishes easily and is very comfortable to wear. I love that the finger holes on the bottom are not enclosed so you can just pull the holder off without ruining your paint job. Just one tip: move the holder to your pointer finger when doing your thumb." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in 19 colors/patterns).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these so much! The shimmer is awesome. I got a ton of compliments. Super pigmented and little to no fallout. I work 12 hour days and this eye makeup was stuck in place! You might need to play around with it a bit before going out in public, because once it’s on it’s there." —Katie B.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    Amazon

    One side is magnified 5x or 10x, and the other side is a regular mirror.

    Promising review: "Everything I hoped it would be, and more. Small, lightweight, sleek design, solid construction, and both the regular and the magnifying mirrors deliver clear images. I purchased a similar mirror with high ratings at the same time (I couldn't decide which to get, so I got both), and this one is the clear winner. In fact, I ordered three more so I could keep one in the car, bathroom, purse, etc." —Mick

    31. A pair of Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oils that'll go above and beyond as the moisturizers of choice for any skincare-obsessed friend, especially if they're frequently on the go and subjected to lots of drying flight time — the light version is perfect for daytime, while the original is slightly heavier and ready to do double-duty while they sleep.

    Sephora

    This set includes:

    100 percent Pure Argan Oil

    100 percent Pure Argan Oil Light

    Promising review: "I love the practicality of these two oils, as I travel a lot and they are the perfect size. I tend to use the original argan oil at night and the light one during the day. I usually apply the oil after Josie's Face Butter. It absorbs so quickly and traps in moisture all day. I sometimes like to take a drop of oil and mix it into my foundation too. In warmer weather, I use the light argan oil as my only moisturizer, and it really helps to balance my oil and keep my foundation fresh all day. I also love using this in my hair at night on my ends, or I will put a few drops into my shampoo or conditioner. Last winter I had some eczema around my eyes and a few patches on my face, and the argan oil healed it incredibly! My mom has rosacea and she absolutely swears by this oil too — it's the only product that doesn't irritate her skin. Great for dry cuticles in the winter too. I'll be snapping up a few of these as stocking stuffers for sure!" —Racquel04

    Get it from Sephora for $19.
