31 Last-Minute Beauty Gifts You Can Still Get in Time for Christmas

Audacity is at an all-time high this year, and time has been the biggest offender. Yes, I'm talking about actual hours, days, weeks, and months. They're flying by so fast that it's harder than ever to get a handle on anything let alone holiday shopping. And if you're shopping for a beauty lover or two, then the challenge of locating the perfect gift is all that more real. As we rapidly approach mid-December, the race is officially on.

Don't worry. The situation isn't dire… yet. But judging by time's complete lack of chill this year, I'd recommend getting on top of this situation before you wake up in a cold sweat on December 24 wishing you'd heeded this warning. Even though some of our favorite beauty retailers like Nordstrom, Sephora, and Violet Grey offer exceptionally fast shipping (and don't even get us started on Amazon), there's still not that much time to sort out a game plan.

To help you out, here are 31 last-minute beauty gifts, from skincare sets to bougie fragrances and all the tools your loved ones could want, that you can still get in time for Christmas. They're all so great and thoughtful that no one will know you waited this long to buy. Happy scrolling.
