It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, and everything Christmas/Hanukkah/holiday season is already being shoved down our throats. IDK about you, but this has me thinking about what I’m going to give my friends and family this holiday season.. and as sickly obsessed with everything skincare/makeup/hair related that I am, I’m thinking about the best gifts for women in my life. This isn’t easy.

What do you give your mom when she deserves an island but you can only afford a candle? Or your bestie who is always there for you even when you’re acting like a total psychopath? I always feel incredibly appreciated and touched when a friend or family member gives me a gift that they picked specifically for me, and that they thought they would love. Something even better – giving someone this feeling.

We’ve rounded up the best holiday gift ideas for women that will help you make these tough decisions. Whether you’re on a budget or ready to splurge, there is something here for the amazing women in your life. Trust us, they’ll love these.

Do I even need to explain why this would be an amazing gift? Not only do you get a full eyeshadow palette with every color you could ever need, but you ALSO get a blush, highlighter, bronzer, mascara, glossy lip paint, and a black liquid eyeliner. Bring this on vacation and you’ll barely have to bring anything else.
