Easy, Pretty, Beauty Gift Guide for the Holidays {American Beauty}


This gift guide is designed to delight the beauty product junkie.  American made beauty items are among some of the very best in gifts.  The only thing that makes a girl more excited than a brand new beauty product is a set of them!  Every holiday season, some of our most coveted items get grouped together in a pretty little package and offered at a great price.  This is a win for the giver and receiver alike.  As always, all items listed are made in USA.

Any product by Philosophy is a winner in my book but their holiday gift sets are an incredible value.  The seasonal scents are easily layered on for long lasting staying power.  Most scents have the shampoo, wash, and spray on scent.  Each box is colorful and includes a great saying like “sending you wishes for sweet joy”.  Philosophy is a great carefree and indulgent gift to give.  Many sets are under $25 this season.

The All Fired Up nail polish collection by Orly was released for fall but the shades of red and gold make perfect holiday manicures.  Several boxed collections are still available to give multiple colors from All Fired Up to the well manicured woman.

Little girls love all the luxuries women do.  Giving them a set by Piggy Paint allows them to have a taste of the big girl life with a product designed just for them.  Non-toxic, little bottle and brush with fun colors and packaging.  I will have a Piggy Paint feature coming soon, it’s a glowing review!

Right on time for winter the All Smiles Lip Balm set makes a great gift.  The boxes are vintage and playful.  The contents of the lip balm are smoothing and flavorful.  The base is made of beeswax and coconut oil, have you seen all the wonderful things coconut oil can do for you?!  Lip conditioning is definitely one of them.

Burt’s Bees Tips and Toes Kit will make a great addition to a stocking or wrapped up as a gift of its own.  This box set has everything you need for softening hands, feet and lips.  Coconut oil makes a return in this package as the featured ingredient.

Hair is often overlooked and neglected but the Chocolat Smoothing Collection by Carol’s Daughteris a treat.  This system is designed to control frizz.  It also nourishes hair and protects it from high heat tools used to dry and straighten hair. These formulas are natural and very nourishing.  The scents and results are divine.

I have more American Beauty gift guides coming to help you navigate some made in USA shopping lists this holiday season. Let me know if I can help you with any beauty questions to help you look your best in time for the holiday season.
