After attending Nordstrom’s holiday event earlier this month, I went through all of the pages in its Holiday Gifts section (really! It’s my job!) so you can keep your tabs at a minimum and your sanity in check. And while gifting season is in full swing the beauty section still remains the biggest highlight. Whether you want to get great value on luxury gift sets or simply to gift products you know and love, Nordstrom truly outdid itself with its selection.

If you find yourself at the NYC flagship, you can also stop by the Swarovski pop-up, where some of your favorite pieces from UGG, Marshall Columbia, and Larroudé are adorned with crystals. You can shop and gift a variety of crystal-studded pieces from fashion to home and holiday. If you can’t make it to the store, there are still plenty of gift-worthy pieces online.

Below, my favorite picks which start as low as $20.

You can never go wrong with a lipstick set from M.A.C.

While the shelf life of this product isn’t the best, according to our shopping writer Chinea Rodriguez, she loves how it keeps your brows into place all day.

Gift this viral hand-cream trio that keeps even the driest hands moisturized without feeling greasy. The box features a few seasonal scents that won’t overwhelm.

Housed in a vessel worth a space on their beauty shelf, this luxe Byredo balm is perfect for your friend who loves everything beauty. They likely haven’t splurged on these scented balms that are available in moisturizing chamomile, bergamot, or mint.

Give the gift of moisturized skin with this body treatment set from Néccesaire which includes two full-sized products.

Socks make a great stocking stuffer but so do tanks. We’ve made it our mission to find the best tanks out there and Skims is surely included.

Skip the New York Yankees cap and choose this fun option from Spanish brand Paloma Wool.

If they haven’t bought one for themselves yet, become the best gift giver ever by getting them this starter kit that’s editor approved.

An oven and an air-fryer, all in one. Our Place does it again. And if our data means anything, it’s one of the most bought products this cyber weekend!

Inspired by The Row’s pre-fall show that was styled with what looked like spa slippers? Us too. That’s why house slippers are on our list as best gifts this season.

Turn to gifting luxury beauty products this holiday season. This crowd-favorite moisturizer that smoothes and revives dry skin is worth every penny.

Keep up the hygge gifting with this vibrant and fun bathrobe from Dusen Dusen.

Along with pairing perfectly with a suitcase, this lightweight suitcase has nine pockets to fit shoes, water bottles, and much more, making it the perfect gift for the traveler on your list.

Best Splurge-worthy Gift Ideas

While it’s pretty pricey, this shimmering body oil is only a fraction of the cost of the viral scent and is just as good, maybe even better. Infused with crystal and gold powder and a blend of moisturizing oils, this will leave them glowing all year round.

Everybody knows (and expects) Santal 33 but we believe Another 13 is the superior option. With hints of musk, moss, and jasmine seeds this bottle will last them more than a year since one spritz goes a long way.

Is it a splurge-worthy listicle if we don’t include at least one Dyson hair product?

Speaking of Dyson, anybody who loves cleaning will appreciate a Dyson vacuum.
