Give Luxury.

The best gifts are often those luxurious items that one does not buy for oneself. For many women, that can mean high end beauty products, and this is where you come in. This holiday season, think about the gift of luxury. A gift that says, go ahead, it's okay. Take a minute for yourself.

The following list is full of amazing quality products that actually do what they claim to do.  Each of these items makes a beautiful stand alone gift as well as a great stocking stuffer. The best part is that most of the items are easy on the wallet. And what woman does not love a small box? Trust me, she will be excited.

Best Beauty Gifts for the Women in Your Life:

**Under $200
Mason Pearson brushes are always at the top of every beauty essentials list and this one is no exception. It's a classic she will have forever.

{Mason Pearson, Handy All Boar Brush, $190.}

The best hairdryer ever. Travel version.

{T3, Featherweight Travel Journey Dryer, $130.}

**Under $100.

A hydrating treat for your body during the cold winter months. Buy the big bottle, you won't regret it.
Gorgeous compact inside and out. And the perfect smoky eye colors for New Year's Eve.

{YSL, Palette Smoking Noir, $65.}

**Under $50.

The only bronzer she will ever need.

{Nars, Bronzing Powder, $33.}

A super chic duo of nail polish that will look amazing sitting on her vanity and on her nails. One is a satin finish and one is matte depending on her mood.

{YSL Manicure Couture No6, $30.}

The gold standard of nail polish. Who wouldn't be excited to find this in their stocking? It's hard to choose just one shade.

Skip the fake lash application and give DiorShow Mascara. One swipe for dramatic lashes. The carbon black color is just a bonus.

You need this. I have a travel size tube in my car and one in my handbag. I keep the large size at home. Your hands will thank you. Give one as a gift if you can part with it. (The travel size is only $10!)

{L'Occitane, Shea Hand Cream, $26.}

So ladies, have you tried all of the incredible products on this list? My top three picks are the Mason Pearson brush, Chanel nail polish, and L’Occitane hand cream. They are products that are perfect for women of all ages. I must own the YSL Couture Duo.

For the other special people in your life, try these:

It's never too early to take care of your skin. Here is one fabulous way to pamper a newborn.

{Mustela, Newborn Set, $39.}

The gold standard for diaper rash treatment.

And don't forget to pamper the men in your life too.

Because he won't buy this stuff for himself, but will love that you did.

Treat everyday like you are on the runway.
