5 Gift Ideas for Her – Holiday 2014

If you have a loved one who loves beauty things, then you will find that Sephora has some great options for gifts. This post will discuss affordable gift ideas for her, which cost between C$29 and $60, in addition to some tips to save on those gifts.

Sephora Sales Tips – Gifts for Her

If you are not familiar with Sephora and the promotions they do then it might surprise you to know that they habitually have sales or do 15%-20% off promotions. They also have a clearance section called “SALE” on their website.

If your girl, wife, sister, or what have you, wants something that is current (for example, the Naked2 Basics palette) then consider purchasing it either during the ongoing Friends and Family sale or during the VIB sale. To get 20% during the Friends and Family sale, you will need to get a code or physical coupon from someone who works for Sephora. If you don’t know anyone that works there then you can always part take in the VIB sale.

Sephora has a 15% off everything in store sale twice a year for beauty insiders, all you need to do is get the card (it’s free) and know the dates at which the sale occurs. The sale usually occurs in March/April and November; just in time for the holidays.

5 Holiday Beauty Gift Ideas for Her

Eye Products

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”344108″]

The Naked Basics 2 palette C$34.00 is a versatile, matte eye shadow palette with six shades in taupe-hued neutrals. It’s a fool proof gift for any girl/woman who wears neutral makeup on a daily basis (most of us do).

Why does it make a great gift? It works for all ages because it isn’t packed with glitter and she can use it on its own or with other makeup products in her stash. This palette works for most light to medium-dark skin tones. It’s great for everday use, but travel as well, due to its compact size. It’s also parabens free.

Lip Products

A great alternative to an eye shadow palette would be a lip set. Generally speaking, it is difficult to pick just one color that will suit someone ‘s complexion, so in this case I would recommend a variety set. You have two basic choices in this case; lipstick or lipgloss. I won’t even get into too much detail about lip stains or chubby pens for the sake of keeping this simple. Here are a few options with great ratings:

1. tarte Kiss & Belle Lipsurgence Lip Set  C$41.00 – includes 6 lip ‘crayons’ and 2 lip glosses

Why is this a good option? The Kiss & Belle Lipsurgence Lip Set includes a variety of shades and finishes. If you are not sure whether she prefers a matte, cream or glossy finish to the lips then this set includes a couple of each. Furthermore, the shades vary from nude, pink, red and plum. Basically, there’s a little of everything.

2. Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix C$29.00 – set of 4 lip products in a tin case

For the eco-concious beauty, Bite Beauty makes all their lip products from food grade ingredients that are 100% safe to be ingested, though I don’t recommend eating them as a snack. The Best Bite remix set includes a a nude, berry, plum, and red lip sticks in twist up pen form. All these shades are bound to get good use over the holiday season.

3. Buxom Winner Takes All Lip Set C$40.00

Last but not least, we have the Lip Gloss Set from Buxom, this is probably the best option for a younger girl or someone who isn’t keen on lipstick. The set includes a variety of shades like: peach, fuchsia, nude and three varying shades of pink. The set is highly rated for the product’s lasting power and moisturizing quality on the lips, perfect for winter weather.

Atelier Cologne Miniature Discovery Collection C$60.00

I would consider this last item to be a bit of a splurge, for some reason the widget above is showing $67, but it is indeed c$60. This is a set with 5 mini Atelier Colognes most popular scents. The set includes Orange Sanguine, Cédrat Enivrant, Vanille Insensée, Rose Anonyme and Vetiver Fatal.

What is unique about these is that they can be worn separately or mixed together.  I have personally tried on the Rose Anonyme and Orange Sanguine scent mixed together and they compliment each other so well.

In an intimate context – the great thing about gifting fragrances is that (if you gift them to your partner) it’s a treat for you as well! Or at least, that’s how I see it when I buy my bow a cologne I love…
