Whether you're at home, jetting away to see family, hitting the slopes or escaping winter over the holidays, here is my roundup of cool, travel-friendly beauty finds sure to excite any friend or family member during your gift-giving extravaganza!
1/ For the Luxury Lover This limited-edition Burberry Lip Gloss Purse Charm is the perfect gift. Featuring a faux-leather tassel attached to an engraved cube filled WITH a gorgeous pink moisturizing lip gloss, this beauty gift looks as elegant in your bag as it does on your lips. Find it: Nordstrom for $85
2/ For the Trendsetter Ciaté created this super innovative Caviar Manicure Set. Ciaté's brainchild is Charlotte Knight, who wanted to develop something extravagent and different for the cover of a magazine shoot. The result was these Caviar Manicure Sets, which create a sophisticated three-dimensional look for nails. The set includes a base color polish and Caviar Pearls which are applied on top. My favorite shade is Candy Shop which is described as "an explosion of juicy brights on a bed of deep marine aqua." Find it: Sephora for $25
3/ For the Fashionista Jane Tran Los Angeles has fabulous hair accessories at affordable prices. This pretty, vintage-looking butterfly bobby pin is enhanced with stones and dresses up any hairstyle. Find it: Beauty.com for $15
4/ For the Eco-Conscious Aromatherapy Associates makes the most decadent, award-winning, 100% natural bath oils around. For the holidays they created an amazing set of 9 bestselling oils, which can be added to the bath or used in the shower to make skin incredibly soft. Find it: Beautyhabit for $74
