How do I choose the right makeup gift set for her?
The best makeup gift sets are those that are connected to her daily makeup routine. Give her those makeup products that she actually uses, and try to stay away from anything that might hint she isn’t beautiful or needs extra makeup help to cover up imperfections.
The best way to get it right is to have a look in her bathroom if you have the opportunity to do so. Alternatively, you can ask her friends or family members to give tips.
When it comes to the contents of the makeup gift set, there are two recommended approaches:
- If she uses a certain brand, f.e. an eyeliner from Bobbie Brown, give her a gift set containing a variety of shades from that brand. She’ll love to try new variants of her trusted brand.
- If you know she loves using a certain makeup product, f.e. eyeliner, give her a gift set containing such products of a very premium brand that she would not easily buy for herself.
Either way, you will want to give her a makeup gift set instead of one single product, and this is because the chances will be higher if she likes at least one product or item within the set.
How do I choose the right beauty gift set for her?
The best beauty gift sets are those that contain products with which she can give herself luxurious pampering.
Again, your best bet is to include several products within your beauty gift set to increase the chances she actually likes one or more of them.
The most appreciated beauty gift sets for women contain one or more of the following products:
- A body scrub removes dead skin cells, making the skin soft and smooth.
- Lotions to rehydrate the skin. Note that women use different lotions for their body, hands & face. So adding one of each to a beauty & makeup gift set is definitely ok.
- A serum is a skincare product that contains a high concentration of performance ingredients and should be used underneath a moisturizer or treatment mask. Serums are usually the most expensive beauty products, yet they are of course also the most potent.
You are convinced she indeed loves to pamper herself, but you are looking for other pamper & relaxation gifts besides creams & lotions? In this case, you will want to check out our list of relaxation gifts for women.
Which beauty and makeup gift sets to avoid?
Although most women will love most beauty or makeup gift sets they receive, there are certain products that you definitely need to stay away from:
- Anti-aging products: Whatever you do, don’t give her a set of products that are labeled “fights the 7 signs of aging.” Understandably, she will interpret this as a sign that you think she is starting to look old and, even worse, that she needs to do something about it.
- Anti-cellulite products: Cellulite is one of the most common conditions among women, but also one that often leads them to have a complex about their body and feel insecure. So a big no-no is to give her a gift set of products that point out this sensitive topic.
- Diet or slimming products: Any beauty or a makeup gift set that insinuates a woman is overweight will not be appreciated.
Luckily, there aren’t too many beauty and makeup gift sets out there that contain these products (don’t take it as a challenge to find some), but keep these points in mind if you ever plan to create a gift basket yourself.
Are beauty and makeup gift sets a good idea for new moms?
Yes and no.
You are definitely on the right track if you’re thinking about buying a new mom a gift for herself. She just went through 9 months of agony followed by the most painful experience in her life. Most people stick to gifts for the baby or sometimes an occasional (gag) gift for the dad, but the mom is often left wanting.
Beauty gift sets are a great idea to give to any woman who has just had a baby. After everything her body went through, some quality pampering and relaxation were well deserved.
Makeup gift sets could also be appreciated. After all, it has been a long time since she has been able to feel like a sexy woman. But you will want to watch out if you don’t send any signals that she might need makeup because she looks awful.
