Gift Ideas Wanted! Help Us Create the Ultimate Community Chosen Holiday Gift Guide

Sephora Holiday Sign it's the beauty you give.png

 

EDIT 10/28: You've spoken, and your Community Chosen gifts can be found here!

 

Itโ€™s the most magical time of year, especially for those of us who live our best life during peak shopping season, but shopping for gifts doesnโ€™t come easily for everyone. The pressure of coming up with the best beauty gifts for everyone on your list can be a major struggle for some, taking out the joy that should come with spreading holiday beauty cheer. So we figured weโ€™d call in some reinforcements โ€“ the BIC! We want YOUR expert help to crowdsource the ULTIMATE holiday gift guide.

 

EDIT: We love what you've shared so far, so we're extending the deadline to contribute your Sephora gift ideas! Please fill out this form by Monday, October 14th! If you're on the app, please make sure to visit on desktop or the mobile website in order to access the form link.

 

*Please note: These might not be the exact categories we end up using in our final guide โ€“ theyโ€™re just to help spark that gift-giving spirit and inspire your ideas. Donโ€™t forget to share your own gifting category ideas in the form as well!

Re: Gift Ideas Wanted! Help Us Create the Ultimate Community Chosen Holiday Gift Guide

Just submitted my responses! This is my first time filling out the holiday guide form. I've missed it past years or simply didn't have the time. Thanks for extending submissions till today @TeamBIC ! Was really helpful for me to think about all my recipients and devise a good shopping plan!^^

Re: Gift Ideas Wanted! Help Us Create the Ultimate Community Chosen Holiday Gift Guide

Doing this atm hopefully I finish before 12am PST ๐Ÿ˜‰ .. I'm not going to even pretend to be quick when it comes to making beauty product decisions lol.

Re: Gift Ideas Wanted! Help Us Create the Ultimate Community Chosen Holiday Gift Guide

That was a lot of fun @TeamBIC, and I wanted to mention that I appreciated the option at the end to have the list sent to yourself. That will be helpful! ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Gift Ideas Wanted! Help Us Create the Ultimate Community Chosen Holiday Gift Guide

I think I put waay too much thought into this ๐Ÿ˜‚ I filled it out as if I were in those positions, what would I want? It took me HOURS ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ Lol 

Re: Gift Ideas Wanted! Help Us Create the Ultimate Community Chosen Holiday Gift Guide

I had a blast putting this list together, I'm so curious of what the final list will look like! 

Re: Gift Ideas Wanted! Help Us Create the Ultimate Community Chosen Holiday Gift Guide

This was soooo fun. I loved that there was a "teacher" category included. ๐Ÿ™‚ As an expert on what gifts to give teachers - lotion and hand-cream sets are ALWAYS much needed with all the hand santizer and hand washing we do around kids, haha!

Re: Gift Ideas Wanted! Help Us Create the Ultimate Community Chosen Holiday Gift Guide

I just spent a good 30 minutes answering all these great questions. Itโ€™s helped me think about who Iโ€™m shopping for this year and what options exist! And not to mention itโ€™s a nice way of learning about the new holiday sets online. ๐Ÿ™‚

Has anyone started shopping their own list for themselves?...asking for a friend ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคท

Re: Gift Ideas Wanted! Help Us Create the Ultimate Community Chosen Holiday Gift Guide

I have a terrible habit of buying 2 of every gift when holiday shopping. One for them, one for me. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

 

Re: Gift Ideas Wanted! Help Us Create the Ultimate Community Chosen Holiday Gift Guide

I have the bad habit of making sure I get my wish list items first, before getting gifts for other people. lol <333
