I’ve got another Nordstrom Beauty post today, and I’m SO PUMPED!
Today is all about HOLIDAY BEAUTY SETS!
I always love the holiday beauty sets at Nordstrom, but while looking online at Nordstrom over the past several weeks, I was having trouble finding any. I was bummed and thought they had fallen short this year. BUT THEN I WENT IN STORE LAST WEEK. AND Y’ALL! All of their sets are DARLING!
It seems that the online pictures don’t always do a great job at sharing the fact that it’s a holiday set that’s packaged up all cute, but going in store definitely proved otherwise. I went a little bit crazy scooping up what I thought were the best sets to share with y’all.
Beauty sets like the ones I’m highlighting today are EXCELLENT gifts for so many reasons, but especially because they are one size fits all! You don’t have to wonder if the item is going to fit, and you can pretty much guarantee sets like this will be a hit for most people on your list.
As you can see, I might have gone a bit holiday gift set crazy. What can I say, I was feeling festive, and I wanted to share several options.
And seriously, look how beautiful the packaging is. (All of these pieces are linked and highlighted below.)

HOLIDAY GIFT SETS
First of all, this Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Set is GORGEOEUS. The products come in this big box (I added the bow) and the presentation is so beautiful. I can’t think of one lady on my Christmas list that wouldn’t absolutely love to receive this stunning boxed set.
This is what you see when you open the box.
This set includes the Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads that I already use AND LOVE. And it also includes the Resurfacing Facial Wash that I’m excited to try!
Several influencers I follow (and trust) have been recommending these Resurfacing Pads for years. I was always interested when they would sing their praises, but I had some similar pads from a different product line that I loved that kept me from trying the Elemis pads. Well, when the Elemis pads went on sale back in March, I finally tried them and instantly fell in love. Now I use my other pads several nights a week and still use and love them, but I have started using the Elemis pads each morning. They wake up my face, they get off every little bit of skincare from the night before and any oils that might have accumulated overnight, and they just leave me feeling incredibly refreshed. After using them I moisturize, apply sunscreen, and then apply makeup as normal.
This Clarins Advent Calendar is next level and also makes a gorgeous gift.
It contains 12 super popular Clarins products. This really is a PERFECT gift for the beauty lover!

How much fun to open up a little drawer to see what fun beauty surprise you get that day!
This Gucci Lipstick Trio is a total luxury gift for the lady that has everything. It comes in this pretty green Gucci box, and the lipstick cases are beautiful.
And look how pretty the colors are!

– So Gingerbread Exfoliating Sugar Scrub (1.76 oz.)
– So Sugar Plum Exfoliating Sugar Scrub (1.76 oz.)
With three full size products in this set, you could gift the entire set to one lucky lady, or you could separate the products out and they would make great stocking stuffers. I would like to receive this set, but I also think it would be super cute for a teen girl. The packaging is whimsical and fun.
I LOVE THIS SET, and it’s such an incredible deal.
These glosses are HIGH shine (y’all know I love a shiny lip), super moisturizing, and “starlight” and “sugarplum” are both so pretty! It says these are “mini” glosses, but I don’t consider them to be mini at all. I wore them to my friend’s birthday party this weekend, and they felt and looked great all night long. I like them so much in fact that I’m actually considering buying a couple of extra to last me a good long while. (I got a MAC lipstick holiday set a couple of years ago, but the colors never came back, and I miss them.) A $56 value, this set is ONLY $28!
These mini perfumes are perfect for travel, and I like keeping one in my makeup bag at all times for when I need a little refresh. This set sold out last year pretty quickly, so grab it before it’s gone! It’s a total steal at $24, and it’s a great way to try out several of the most popular Tocca scents. Erika gave this to me once (I think it was maybe at a Favorite Things party), and I loved it! It was so fun trying out all of the scents, and I definitely found some personal favorites. After I loved receiving it so much, I’ve given the set several times as a gift as well.
The Burberry Her scent is my absolute favorite scent right now. My friend Ralonda introduced me to it one day when she got in my car and I couldn’t get over how amazing she smelled! I bought the full-size perfume that day, but I think these little perfumes are adorable.
There’s also a great Her set HERE that includes a full-size perfume, a lotion, and a travel perfume.
Do you need a little something for your man for Christmas? This Kiehl’s Men’s Energizing Essentials Set includes everything he needs to cleanse, moisturize and exfoliate his face. This will be under the tree for Chris for sure.\

I saw an influencer singing the praises of the Westman Atelier cheek balm on ig several weeks ago, so when I saw this set, it flew into my cart! How To Use: Apply Baby Cheeks Blush Stick directly to cheeks or use fingers to dab onto cheeks or lips and gently blend. Wear the Liquid Lip Balm alone or layer over lipstick to add shine without stickiness.
I hear that cream blushes like this are supposed to be so much better for mature skin than powder blushes, so my mature skin definitely need to try it out.
I don’t use hand cream, but my mom loves hand cream, so I grabbed this set for her! The cream is thick, rich, and incredibly hydrating.
The little tubes are so easy to just throw in your purse, in your nightstand drawer, etc. And the packaging is just so so pretty!
Just look how pretty all of the packaging is! And because it’s a gift set, you’re spending less than what the products would retail for individually AND you’re getting the benefit of the gorgeous presentation.
Like I said at the beginning of the post, I love to give these types of gifts! I think holiday beauty sets are actually genius to give because there’s no burden on me to know the sizing of the recipient, I don’t know any lady that doesn’t love beauty products, and I love to feel like I’m getting a deal (and these sets are total deals). Plus, the presentation is always so pretty that I’m just proud to gift it!

NORDSTROM 2022 BEAUTY POST REVIEW
As I mentioned at the beginning of today’s post, I’ve done several beauty posts already this year.
Let’s take a walk down memory lane before you go…
The most popular one with y’all was definitely the one I did last month!
Click HERE for my Charlotte Tilbury Full Face Review! I had my makeup done by Sarah (a regional artist with Charlotte Tilbury), and I LOVED the results. I especially loved the change she made with my eye makeup, and I’ve continued with the products and her recommendations for how to apply the products. This post will tell you everything you need to know.
And click HERE for all of the Charlotte Tilbury sets that are available right now.
Click HERE for the GET YOUR GLOW ON post.
Click HERE for the Let’s Talk About Eyes post. (Although I’m now using the new method in the Charlotte Tilbury post linked above!)
Click HERE for the post where I highlighted Lancome products.
Click HERE for some fun beauty finds.
Click HERE for September’s makeup favorites where I talk about 3 different lipsticks. In the below pictures I’m wearing this lip liner (in “pillow talk medium”) with all of the lipsticks, and I’m wearing the Anastasia Diamond Gloss on top of all 3 colors. I ALWAYS wear a gloss with a lipstick, and this gloss gives me the extreme shine that I often desire without altering the color of the lipstick. The Anastasia Gloss is killer. It gives incredibly high shine with just the tiniest bit of a shimmer, but not too much shimmer, because I wear it every single day.
Sidenote: When I see my eye makeup like this it looks so harsh to me now! I’m so pleased with the newer and fresher look that I’m doing now!
That’s all for today, y’all! I hope this post was helpful and you were able to find a new product or two for your personal beauty arsenal!
