All the Beauty Advent Calendars That I'm Gifting This Year

It seems like the holidays creep up on us faster every year. Now that Thanksgiving has passed, the holiday season is in full swing at almost every store. Christmas trees are popping up, holiday music is playing in the background everywhere you go, and the delightful smells of hot cocoa and gingerbread are floating in the air.

With all that the holidays bring, gift giving (and receiving!) is a big priority for many people. If you’re feeling a little stuck on what to buy for your beauty-loving friend, or if you’re looking to treat yourself this holiday season, I’ve come up with a list of beauty advent calendars that are perfect for any beauty enthusiast.


It’s no secret Argan oil is one of the best ingredients you can use to achieve healthy hair and smooth skin. It can be hard to maintain healthy hair and skin during the colder months because skin and hair tends to dry out with the constant cold wind and temperatures This beauty vault contains amazing products that help you maintain moisturized skin and healthy hair, such as the cult favorite Moroccanoil Hair Treatment ($34), as well as an amazing heat protectant spray, hand cream, dry body oil and much more.

Self-care is so important, so give the gift of seven amazing beauty samples that are sure to bring relaxation this season! Not only does this advent calendar contain carefully curated skincare products, but each product is hidden behind a door that has a wonderfully positive message written on it. This advent calendar contains samples of an essential oil roll-on stick, herbal towelettes, Hum Nutrition Daily Cleanse Supplements ($25), natural deodorant, hair oil, moisturizing stick and body oil.

This adorable twelve-day advent calendar from Urban Outfitters brings little makeup and skincare surprises that are full of good ingredients. You can expect samples of the Kopari Deodorant ($14), Benefit They’re Real! Mascara ($25), Caudalie Vinopure Skin Perfecting Serum ($79), Bliss Jelly Glow Peel ($12) and many other cult-favorite products.

This classy holiday advent calendar is a great gift for anyone, but I think it’s especially perfect for your mom or aunt. With products from brands like Sunday Riley, Mario Badescu, Caudalie and Verb, it’s easy to give the gift of luxurious beauty this year.
