BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

2020 holiday gift guide_beauty insider community.png

 

Shopping for all your loved ones can be a fun but challenging time around the holiday season, but this year, Team BIC has got you covered! We recently surveyed some of the Beauty Insider Community’s most dedicated beauty lovers, our Bosses, and asked them what they thought were the best makeup, skincare, hair, and fragrance gifts this year. We received incredibly thoughtful responses from our Bosses – know that these recommendations come from serious beauty expertise!

 

Keep reading to check out some of the top gift ideas recommended by our BIC Bosses (in no particular order). Even though we’re only quoting a few of them below, this was a group effort made possible by ALL our Bosses. THANK YOU to all our Bosses who participated! 💖

 

1. Briogeo Merry Multi-Masking Kit ft. Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Honey Bear Hair Mask 

“You get some humectants with the honey, some protein and moisture. A great rotation of hair masks!” – @GG84 

 

2. Drunk Elephant Firmy The Day Kit 

“You get to try some of Drunk Elephant’s bestselling items that work on almost every skin type and treat dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and loss of firmness and elasticity.” – @SportyGirly125 

 

3. Hourglass Ambient™ Lighting Face Palette – Sculpture 

“Besides how gorgeous the pans are, this is one of the most versatile face palettes for creating a soft and dreamy glow.” @eshoe 

 

4. Olaplex Holiday Hair Fix Kit 

“My hair was always dry and brittle until I started using Olaplex 3. It has brought my dry dull hair back to life. My hair is now shinny and smooth. I also love that this kit comes with the shampoo, conditioner and the bond smoother. This is a perfect kit to give anyone.” – @ather 

 

5. PAT McGRATH LABS Mega Mothership: Celestial Divinity Eyeshadow Palette 

 “This palette is such a great deal. The shadows are the same fabulous quality and pigmentation as the smaller palettes, but you get 18 shades to play with. The packaging is gorgeous and includes such intricate detail. This would be a perfect gift for Pat McGrath devotees as well as those new to the brand.” – @PrettyPaint

 

6. Sephora Favorites Holiday Perfume Sampler Set 

“This is such a great way to test a bunch of bestselling scents and then you can use the included scent certificate to purchase your favorite one for free!” – @quspork 

 

7. Sephora Favorites Mini Perfume Travel Set 

“… for someone wanting to dabble in fragrance, this kit is a good way to sample some and decide what scents work for you without the traditional high price tag of perfumes.” – @ShortErica 

 

8. Slip Beauty Sleep Collection Gift Set White/Pink 

“Regardless of hair type, sleeping on silk is the best for your hair.  All other fabrics can dry the hair out, encourage split ends and so on.  Worth the purchase!” – @ElleElleG 

 

9. Sol de Janeiro Wild Extravaganza Set 

“This is a fun self-care gift that will leave your giftee smelling sooooo good!” – @Tamara76 

 

10. Too Faced Christmas Snuggles & Melted Kisses Liquid Lipstick Set 

“These are beautiful colors for the holidays. They are easy to apply, dry fast without drying out my lips, wear comfortably, last a long time, and smell wonderful! You can gift these lippies as a set or break them up to make individual gifts.” – @itsfi

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

great ideas 😉 thanks a lot!

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

I’m so sad that the Sephora holiday perfume sampler set is sold out. Is there going to be restock?

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

Thanks for compiling this awesome list @TeamBIC 

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

I second the Drunk Elephant Firmy The Day Kit . The C-Firma serum is a must-have in my skincare rotation for quickly fading any possible acne scarring after a bad breakout.  With the current discount of 10% for BI members, it's like buying the C-Firma at full price and getting 4 other travel-sized Drunk Elephant products for free.  Great recommendation, @SportyGirly125 !  

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

@TeamBIC Great recommendations!

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

@TeamBIC  Wow such a great gifting guide!! I know I will pick up a few of these!!

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

@TeamBIC Thank you for including my recommendation!  Sol De Janeiro products make the best gifts!

 

I actually second all of these recommendations and may have purchased them all for myself and/or for gifts during the F&F and Holiday Sale this year!!!!💗💗💗

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

I loved reading what others are recommending for those on their lists this year @TeamBIC! That Slip Beauty Sleep Collection Gift Set White/Pink looks especially luxe and something I need to gently suggest to my husband ☃️☺️

 

ETA: thank you @ElleElleG for helping me finish my Christmas Wish List 🎄🛍

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

@eshoe I got one from Nordstrom Rack and can’t wait to use it. 

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

Ooooh lucky you, @SportyGirly125! I went a couple of weeks ago and the entire store was downsized. Less displays, and further spread apart. I am going to be keeping my eyes out for it online.

 

The question I have though, and I’ve researched it and am not convinced by what I’ve found: just how much of your facial product rubs off onto the pillow case? Many nights I use a sleeping mask, an oil, etc. my face is not dry when I go to sleep, and I intentionally am supine when falling asleep for that reason.

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

I try to wait about half an hour before my head actually hits the pillow after finishing up my skincare since I'm a side sleeper, @eshoe but I haven't had any issues with getting residue on the Slip pillowcases. 

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

Thank you @quspork that’s good to know. I usually start my skincare pretty early but some nights I have to tuck my hand under my cheek so it doesn’t rub off onto the pillow, depending on which products I’ve used. I just don’t want to spend $$$ on a pillowcase and immediately ruin it with facial oils!

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

@eshoe I got mine online. I’m a back sleeper and I don’t toss and turn much. My husband says I sleep pretty stiff and don’t move at all. 

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

Lucky you, @SportyGirly125 - sounds like you sleep peacefully at night☺️

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

@TeamBIC Loved reading this list - esp the input fromt he BICers.  I'm most interested in the Olaplex for gifting.  

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

@greeneyedgirl107  It’s literally my favourite!!! 

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

@ather The friend I want to get it for, though, doesn't like to use silicones in her hair products.  I recently sent her an e-mail asking if she changed her mind, but she never got back to me.  So, IDK if she'll change her policy for Olaplex!

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

@greeneyedgirl107  I had stopped using silicones and sulphates but my hairdresser recommended Olaplex when it was only in salons. And I’m glad I tried it!! I love the whole line! 

Re: BIC Boss Buys: Top 10 Gift Ideas for the 2020 Holiday Season

Awesome recommendations @TeamBIC  , I see some products that I need to pick .
