Gift Guide by Passion: Beauty

Another creative related passion to gift for is beauty. This is an easy one since, let’s be honest, we all want to be beautiful. Some are just born that way while the rest of us spend hours on end researching every beauty product, trend, tip, and trick known to man. If someone you’re buying for this holiday season is the latter of the two, here are some good gift options.

Subscription Boxes

Subscription boxes are a great gift for nearly anyone. But the beauty subscription boxes really are the core of it all and I think the best of them. Beauty junkies are notorious for wasting products because they buy every single one of the out there. Every time a product is recommended or they see a shiny ad promising they will be the next Victoria’s Secret model they run out and buy whatever the hell it is. A lot of the time to be let down in some way (i.e. she isn’t a Victoria’s Secret model).

Subscription beauty boxes are perfect because the top of the field chooses the products and tailors them to you/her. So you’re mom, sister-in-law, and best friend can all sample the best of beauty with no regrets.
