Beauty Gift Ideas for your Girlfriends

The best people to spoil for the holiday season is our girlfriends. Why? Mainly because our true gal pals have been at our sides throughout the whole year that has passed, meaning they are way overdue a great gift. Plus, shopping for girly beauty and cosmetic inspired gifts is actually really fun!

However, although we all know that no gift is more appreciated than that of beauty, what do you buy for girlfriend who is pretty much the girl-who-has-everything?

I can tell you from experience that the last thing any beauty addict needs is more of the same. As a product hoarder myself, I know that girls who really love makeup already have enough eye shadow palettes, foundations, and mascaras to open up their own shop. If you want to get them something really special that looks as though you have really thought of something they may ‘need’, then focus on the more unique, exclusive and special.


Whether you’re trying to pick a gift for your best friend who is never seen without lipstick, or the girl who only wears designer fragrance, there’s something for everyone here. From travel items to starter kits, I’ve pulled together some extra special options — they’re so cute you won’t even know how to pick your favorite!

Even your 'girl-who-has-everything' friend may not own a balancing Rosewater mist! This refreshing spritz from Jurlique lifts your mood and hydrates the skin lightly with a cooling texture and uplifting scent.

Another unusual gift - and one your bestie may not think to buy - is these Anastacia Brow Stencils! This patented set of stencils includes five shapes to suit any face shape, and are durable, easy to use and easy to clean. An easy way to give the gift of fab brows!

Have a friend who has recently been under a lot of stress? This 3-step spa-at-home facial makes skin remarkably radiant and glowing, as if you just had a professional bliss spa facial! It contains all the creams, masks and peels sachets to reveal beautiful stress-free skin.

Have a friend whose expecting? Treat her to a surprise gift dedicated to pregnancy! Treat her skin to Mama Mio's Gorgeous Glow 3-Step Set, a skincare set where each product will leave her feeling fresh, balanced and revitalised.

Your friend may think she has all the top beauty products, but we bet she hasn't experienced a 24k Gold Mask before! This extra special mask from Peter Thomas Roth is the ultimate luxurious anti-aging treatment, infused with pure 24K gold and colloidal gold, to help lift and firm skin and impart an opulent glow. This is sure to impress her!

This Flawless Glow set is designed to let you easily achieve a flawless complexion. Combining a tinted gel cream and translucent finishing powder, complete with a Mini Smoothing Face Brush and complimentary makeup pouch, it's the set of make-up dreams.

Does your gal pal love the gym? Or perhaps she's wanting to join, but can't find the motivation? This 'New Gym Kit' is a beauty product version, providing all the essentials to freshen up on the go. The clever products transform post-workout, tired skin into healthy looking, hydrated skin that is bursting with moisture.

Give the gift of clear, youthful skin! The LUNA mini is a revolutionary facial-cleansing device, combining sophisticated T-Sonic™ pulsations with a gentle silicone brush. Great for providing the deepest clean! Plus, you can pick a bold color to match your buddies personality.

Firstly - it's a fantastic bold pink. Secondly, the MakeUp Eraser is a reusable, ultra-soft cloth that removes makeup with only warm water, making it an ideal choice. A lovely stocking filler for the girl who loves piling on the dramatic make-up...

CC cream, BB Cream, tinted moisturizer.... or trusty foundation? We'll go for another option, please! Impress your friend by giving her the most talked about Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream from bareMinerals, which is ideal for smoothing the skin and providing coverage. She won;t have experienced anything like it!

Every girl wants to uncover the secrets to a striking contour, so set them off the right way with a professional angled contour brush.
