The holidays are almost here! Which means it’s time to start shopping for the people you love most. Not sure where to start? Why not put together a DIY gift basket with hand-picked products that match their personality. Good gifting doesn’t have to be difficult, time-consuming—or expensive! From foodies to bookworms to the beauty obsessed, we’ve got gift ideas—complete with makeup, skin care, hair care, and hair styling products—for everyone on your list this year.
Gift the bookworm in your life beauty products that they can use while they’re scouring the pages of their latest read, like an overnight face mask and a moisturizing hair mask. Pair together the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Intensive Overnight Mask, which will help restore skin firmness and elasticity, and the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask, which will nourish dry strands.
Someone who is always on the go will surely appreciate easy-to-use, travel-friendly products, like the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Radiant Smoothing Wet Cleansing Towelettes, which remove makeup and help exfoliate and smooth skin. Pair them with some easy to apply face makeup that they can toss into their travel bag, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Foundation Shaping Sticks and L'Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Highlighter Shaping Sticks. Lastly, add a good dry shampoo—which is a must for any on-the-go girl—into the mix. We recommend the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo since it has an invisible finish.
Whether you’re gifting to a baker, chef, or just a foodie at heart, putting together a sweet treat-themed beauty basket is sure to please. Lucky for you, we’ve got a myriad of decadent food-inspired makeup and skin care products to choose from. Bundle together a chocolate-scented lipstick, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick, and the L'Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Cocoa Scrub, which is formulated with three pure sugars and finely crushed cocoa (yum!). While you’re at it, add the L'Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup, which has a soft, velvety texture and a fruity scent, to their gift. Chocolate and fruit—two of our favorite things!
For your eco-conscious friend or relative, gift them some beauty products formulated with ingredients sourced from the Earth, like clay and charcoal! Grab the L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser and L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask and don’t hesitate to make a joke about the fact that they essentially received coal in their stocking.
Anyone who works out a lot knows how important it is to remove makeup before hitting the gym, then cleanse your skin again afterward. For the fitness fiend in your life, create a gift set that features the the L'Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types and the L'Oréal Paris Ideal Clean All Skin Types Makeup Removing Towelettes, both of which can easily be tossed in their gym bag. Arm them with a good facial moisturizer as well, which they can apply post-cleansing. We love the L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Day Cream, which is formulated with manuka honey and nurturing oils to help keep skin replenished and hydrated.
Rather than trying to pick out specific makeup shades for the beauty junkie in your life, gift them a makeup palette or two and they’re sure to love it. The L'Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette and the L'Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette are a winning combination. And of course, every beauty queen knows you can never have enough makeup blenders! Toss in a L'Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender for good measure and they will surely be thanking you for months to come.
Stuck on what to get the girl who doesn’t like much at all? When it comes to makeup, gift them a multi-use, multi-action product like a BB cream, which is basically a facial moisturizer, color-corrector, primer, and tinted moisturizer in one! We love the L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Anti-Fatigue (For All Skin Types) and the L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Anti-Redness (For All Skin Tones). (Feel like gifting yourself something nice too?
