Dip Into Pretty Pedi Spacers in Tears of Joy—Clear

I’ve finally tossed my nasty sponge toe separators in favor of these super glam versions. They make every DIY at-home pedicure into a glamorous night in. $12.99,

Show Beauty Riche Leave-In Conditioner

This uber luxe hair care line isn’t just all looks. Next to Living Proof, it’s my favorite hair product line, one that is practically goof-proof (think of it as hair styling for dummies, aka, me). And now their new leave-in conditioner turns air-drying (because I can’t blow out my hair to save my life) into a veritable trip to the salon. $45,

Éminence Organic Skin Care Oils and Serums Signature Series Discovery Set

When I went to Morocco and couldn’t bring my beloved Skinceuticals C E Ferulic (it’s in a glass bottle, for goodness sakes!), I brought the mini size of the Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum from this gift set. Wow, was I pleasantly surprised. Despite the overly sweet orange scent, it’s a solid vitamin C serum. Now I’m excited to test out the other serums from this set before committing to a whole bottle. $79,

Makeup Geek HighlighterS

No, seriously, the prettiest, glimmery-est highlighter ever. This is no subtle glow. These stunning chromatic highlighters are for when you want to positively gleam. I roll my brush in Luster or Psychedelic, tap off the excess (for daytime, anyway), and roll onto the high planes of my face. The best part is these highlighters come in shades made for skin tones from porcelain to deep, so there’s at least three shades made for everyone. $48,

Diptyque Le Roi Sapin

What better gift than a limited edition candle redolent of a magical night in a lush pine forest? (Plus imagine all the Instagram bait flatlays featuring this candle.) $70,

Marc Jacobs Beauty Object of Desire Face and Eye Palette

It’s shiny, it’s vegan, and it’s got a luxe tassel zip. Oh, and of course, the do-it-all neutral eyeshadows, blush, and limited edition luminizer. $69,

Elemental Herbology Hyaluronic Booster Plus+ Intensive Moisture Serum

Skin care as a present? When the packaging is this pretty, absolutely. And when it’s a hyaluronic acid serum that’ll save your winter skin, I consider it an investment. $139,

JINsoon Holiday Pearl Collection

Three shades inspired by the luminosity of Mikimoto pearls, all in a chic reusable box. $42,
