Housewives Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

The holidays will be here before you know it and thankfully, once again, Nordstrom has our backs with the most amazing collection of beauty gifts and sets to date. Whether you’re looking for a small yet chic gift for a friend or to splurge on something for your sig other (or yourself, because, well, after this year we all deserve it), I’ve found amazing options that are tried and true by our fave celebs.

I would LOVE to get any of these gifts. The amazing thing about gifting someone products from luxury beauty brands is that while people may not have yet tried the products themselves the reputation of these brands speak for themselves and packs a real punch when the open the package! Can’t afford to buy your bestie a YSL purse? Don’t worry, a YSL lipstick set has a luxe feel for a small, small fraction of the price! Plus, the savings on a lot of these gifts are not to be passed up.

Since there are so many amazing choices that are ALL great it may be hard to narrow down, so I added my top 8 faves at the bottom which I’ll totally be scooping up for the people on my list along with why! However, even things that aren’t on the list are things I’d love to spot under my tree.

And with that, happy shopping and happy gifting…

(In no particular order)

1 Lancer Skincare Rapid Results Set $50

After Tracy Tutor revealed she is obsessed with Dr. Lancer’s products when I interviewed her on Closet Confessions I followed suit. They’re pricey (like no regular sized individual product is even under $50), so giving someone the ability to try a variety and decide on their face is amazing. I gave this set to my mom for her birthday and she loves it!

2 Dior Lip Glow + Care Set $70 ($100 Value)

After spotting Meredith Marks and Kathy Hilton using gloss by this brand, in addition to having some other Real Housewives fans on the roster, we know this gift is fit for even the most fabulous. This set is in a neutral, almost sheer color so it’s a no-brainer for anyone! I’m also a huge fan of their lash primer which is also included.

3 Glam Glow Thirsty Mud Hydrating Mask $25

I think I have given this gift to just about all of my close friends and it’s the best. It smells amazing and is a mask you can rub into your skin after you let it sit to maximize moisture. I’m scooping this up this year to take to a holiday “My Favorite Things” happy hour! It’s a great gift at an affordable price.

4 Mario Badescu Full Size Drying Lotion, Face Mist + Lip Balm $19 ($33 Value)

If the person you’re gifting doesn’t use Mario Badescu products yet, they are soon to be hooked. Whether we’re talking about Lala Kent, fans of BBH, BBH’s Faryn or my husband and I, we all love these products!

5 La Mer Soothing Regimine Set $95

Everyone knows La Mer is synonymous with luxury, and it comes with the price tag to prove it. To buy the cream alone starts at $95, so this is a great way to give a taste of luxury to anyone who seeks it. 

6 Charlotte Tilbury Cream $70

This skincare brand has always been a celeb favorite, and after seeing these products on the Real Housewives of New York and in Melissa Gorga and Kathy Hilton’s bathrooms, it’s safe to say even our fanciest friends will be more than happy to put any of these products on their face.

7 Tom Ford Soleil Body Oil Set $72 ($90 Value)

The minute we spotted this product on Kyle Richards’ vanity I needed it. The minute we spotted it on Tracy Tutor’s vanity soon after I NEEEEEDED it! This is a great opportunity to gift a friend both shades (to buy just one full size is $100, and these are a little under half the size each), especially if they have an upcoming trip and are about to shimmer in the sun, or just want to feel like they do.

8 Peter Thomas Roth Peel + Reveal Best-Seller Set $68

Peter Thomas Roth eye patches are also a fave of Kyle Richards and Tracy Tutor, and now mine! I’m so into this brand and this combo is the gift that will keep on giving!
