10 amazing holiday gifts under $100

Sharing is caring!

My previous post (holiday gifts under $30) focused on more affordable presents that still had great value. With this list of holiday gifts under $100 I’ll show you nice presents whose prices vary between $30 and $100.  The items below are listed from least expensive to most expensive. 

Sephora – Starlit Brush Set – $39 ($85 value)

This is a really cute set that’ll please any makeup beginner. It contains: a foundation brush, an angled brush, and three eye brushes. Oh, and there’s a pouch, too! This set is cruelty-free and not tested on animals. 

MAC Cosmetics x Patrick Starrr – Boy About Town Kit – $42.50

MAC Cosmetics and Patrick Starrr have managed to perfectly encapsulate what holiday glam should be. A bright red lip and a clever mixture of dark and shimmery shadows. This isn’t the first collaboration between Patrick Starrr and MAC and all the previous ones have been very successful. I reviewed their Spring collection here

Too Faced – Peaches and Dream Makeup Set – $52

The Sweet Peach scented palette has been tremendously popular amongst beauty lovers, bloggers and influencers and it is now available in a great value set that includes the palette, a highlighter/blush/bronzer palette, and a peach shade lip oil. 

Ren – Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil – $48

holiday gifts under $100

REN is well-known (and loved) for their super clean skin care range: it’s vegan, paraben free, sulphate free, and fragrance free. A must try for sensitive skins! This particular oil is perfect for indulging in a peaceful, relaxing bath. It is known for its stress relieving and soothing properties. Skin is left soft, supple, and moisturized to perfection.

Tata Harper – Tata’s Daily Essentials Kit – $75 ($117 value)

God, I wish someone would buy me this kit (boyfriend, I hope you realise I’m making this list of holiday gifts under $100 for you). Tata Harper is another (super clean) brand I personally cannot afford and I’ve been dreaming of trying out a selection of their products. This kit is exactly what I’d want. It contains: a cleanser, a mask, a floral essence, a serum, a moisturizer, an eye cream and a nutrient complex (not sure what that is but I want it too). It’s good for all skin types and will help with fine lines, wrinkles, dryness and redness. 

Tom Ford – Lip Color – $55

Okay. If you want to buy the *one* product that’ll make a lasting impression, go for a Tom Ford lipstick. They’re super expensive, but any makeup lover knows that having one in their collection is a huge achievement. The shade range is quite impressive, so choose wisely. I’ll have the Scarlet Rouge, thanks. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Sultry Palette – $45

holiday gifts under $100

I can’t quite explain why, but every Anastasia Beverly Hills palette release is a huge compulsive purchase trigger for us makeup addicts. We don’t know why we want it, but we want it. And usually, we purchase it. So nip it in the bud and buy it for us. You can’t go wrong. 

Peter Thomas Roth – You Got the Power Anti-Aging Kit – $95 ($158 value)

Look, there’s nothing wrong with buying anti-aging products. This brand is the goat and any skin care lover knows that. If the beauty lover in your life is, well, on the aging side, s/he’ll be happy to see that you know how to cater to his/her needs. End of story. And for Michael Jackson’s sake: look at the value of this set!

Yves Saint Laurent – Mon Paris Beauty Gift Set – $92 ($115 value)

We’re almost at the end of this list of holiday gifts under $100 and I just couldn’t not mention YSL. I’d die for this kit. It has a full size perfume, a lipstick and a mascara. Unless you know your beauty addict is a fan of this perfume, it’s probably a good idea to make sure they like the scent before buying this. 

Hourglass – Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palette – $80

I’m aware that this sounds like a mouthful, but just trust me: it’s the perfect palette for everything face-related. It has a lighting powder, a blush, a bronzer, a highlighter and a strobe lighting powder, which will all make the skin look softer and younger, and lit from within. 

I hope you’ve found my list of holiday gifts under $100 useful or that it has inspired you a little. If your budget is more limited, make sure to check out my list of holiday gifts under $30. If you have more money to spend, there’s a list of holiday gifts over $100 on the blog.

    I would love to splurge on a Tom Ford lipstick. I do collect lipsticks like crazy, and carry at least four of them with me at all times in my bag.I also would like to to try Tata Harper–that’s good deal.
