  • Revolve Beauty 2023 Advent Calendar

    They’re probably already shopping Revolve for all of their sure-to-be-stunning holiday looks but they won’t expect to be given an advent calendar to accompany said looks. Revolve Beauty’s 2023 Advent Calendar is on it with all of the buzziest brands, like J.Lo Beauty, Tower 28, Summer Fridays, and Sol de Janeiro — serving up 24 goodies (6 of which are full-size) that’ll upgrade any beauty collection.

  • Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Lucky Chest Of Beauty Secrets

    We can’t think of a better way to count down the days to Christmas than with Charlotte’s Lucky Chest Of Beauty Stars — nor can we choose our favorite best seller hidden within its shimmery drawers. A travel-size Magic Cream? The Best of Beauty-winning Pillow Talk Matte Beauty Blush Wand? If this advent calendar had a horoscope, it would predict you’ll be glowing all winter long…and beyond.

  • Dermstore Holiday Beauty Box

    While Dermstore’s Holiday Beauty Box isn’t technically an advent calendar — in that the products aren’t hidden behind closed doors — we can’t help but give it a shoutout. You already know Dermstore is the destination for efficacious skin care but let’s get into some of our faves from this curated set, which is valued at — get this — over $750. The skin-care-obsessed people in your life will adore the Dr. Loretta firming face mask, Elemis resurfacing toner pads, and Kate Somerville SPF 50 setting spray, among so much more in this 21-piece box.

  • Diptyque Holiday Advent Calendar

    The more scents, the merrier. Trust us when we say the friend who always has a candle lit up as soon as the temperatures dip below 60 degrees will be talking about the Diptyque Holiday Advent Calendar for years to come. And with 25 candles — including the brand’s best-selling scents, such as the berry-forward Baies and fireside-inspired Feu de Bois — perfumes, and even some hand-care items tossed in, I don’t think they’ll mind sharing the wealth with you. After all, you made a huge investment in your friendship. Wink wink.
