You know that friend who is nearly impossible to shop for? This gifting season we've got it all wrapped up (and delivered) for you in the beauty department, really, just add a bow. Our editors searched all over to find three distinctive collections for any friend (or yourself) that are perfect for gift giving.


If your best is is more Posh Spice than Coachella Boho check out the Holiday Box by Glossybox for the holiday season. Packed with full-sized drama this 8-piece collection of new classics will have her polished to perfection as she party hops from Christmas through New Years Eve. Inside the luxe gold trimmed red velvet box you'll find Calvin Klein's Reveal fragrance, Cargo Texas liquid eyeliner, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics loose color concentrate in 'Smote,' NCLA 'Satin Sheets, Velvet Ropes' nail lacquer, Volcanic Minerals volumizing mascara by Korres, The Lip Bar's 'Crimson Wonderland' ravishing red lipstick, Teadora Nourishing Lip Butter, and moisturizing lip gloss by Jouer in a sheer shimmery 'Wind' shade. ($40 www.glossybox.com)


While we can't all be as crafty as Domestic Diva Martha Stewart we can at least pretend a little this season. For those crafty friends in your life we suggest a gift subscription to Handmade Beauty Box. Each carefully curated kit comes with everything you need to craft delightful loofah soaps (like the one shown here), nail polish, lip gloss, and more. Kits make between 3-24 items each. We like to think of each kit as a gift waiting to happen - one for the creator of the spa products, a perfect project for those rainy and snowy winter days, and one for the friends in her life. ($29.99 per month www.handmadebeautybox.com)


Anyone who's ever called out, "Calgon, take me away," will more than appreciate Packed Party's "You Pampered Thing, You" spa-for-one giftbox. The relaxing collection of five spa goodies includes Whish body butter and swipe deodorant, Eyestea herbal teabags for tired eyes, a satin eye mask for shutting out the chaos, and a bath bomb by Salus. Relaxation in a box and delivered to your door is only one of the many party boxes available from Packed Party. ($45 www.packedparty.com)
