Holiday Gifts for the Beauty Lover

October 16, 2020

Disclosure: Thank you to HSN and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post.

I’ve got some breaking news for you friends – there are only 10 Fridays left until Christmas. Which means only 9 weekends to shop. And something tells me a lot of us are going to be doing most of our holiday shopping online this year, which means we need to allow extra time for shipping. Long story short, it’s time to talk holiday gifting, folks. Let’s get to it.

I love to give gift sets of beauty items to the lipstick-wearing, eye-popping, good-smelling [as in, she likes perfume], women in my life. Otherwise known as the beauty lovers. Whether it’s a caboodle full of goodies [remember those – yeah, they’re back], or a simple sampler or two, it’s such a fun way to let them try some new beauty items! Some of my go-to beauty brands have put together holiday gift sets, for your eyes, lips, hair, and so much more.

This year, I turned to HSN for these gifts! HSN offers exclusive promotions and special values every day on top brands and popular products that we’re already shopping! I’m talking Sam Edelman, Apple, Benefit Cosmetics, and more! Plus there are a ton of unique brands that I wouldn’t have known about before, like g by Giuliana and WVVY by fitty brittty! Not only can you usually watch a short video clip about the features and “how-to’s” of the product, buy you can also use Flex Pay to purchase! This means you can split the cost up into three or more payments, paying just a portion upfront, and paying the rest with 0% interest down the road! Talk about a no-brainer! And with “Today’s Specials” and “Smart Deals” constantly evolving, there is always something to come back to HSN for!

I’ve pulled together a few of my favorite beauty gifts that will have her saying “Joy to the World!” when she sees them under the tree this year! Plus, check out these areas for even more ideas for the beauty lover: stocking stuffers, gift sets, and gifts under $30!

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.

If there is one thing I have learned over the past year of life it is that 30 minutes on a bike can change your life in the best way possible. After years of hearing how great a workout on a stationary bike can be, Shawn & I finally decided to put the pedal to […]
