I was on Nordstrom.com for so many hours to try to find the perfect Luxe beauty gift sets to gift out during the upcoming holidays and to share with you here today. There are so many great deals that many brands are putting together but I picked 20 sets in total out of hundreds.
All of the gifts I have here, I have to say that they are a little pricey but if you have a large budget and are ready to spend and save, these below gift sets will be waiting for you. Even though they’re expensive you will sure get a great value out of them. I’m going to list by the highest value offer first and go down to the less expensive ones.
Before we get into the list, I have a new giveaway going on today located at the end of this post.

Today I have another clean holiday gift guide for those who seek for clean and cruelty-free skincare products to gift this year. All of these clean, cruelty-free skincare products are my favorites that I’ve been using on a daily basis. There are 11 items, starting from cleaner to an overnight mask.
Again, I’m loving all of them but I’m not going to get into to much details to help save you some holiday shopping time. I will leave a short reason why I love each product the most below.
I hope you find the perfect gift for you and for your loved ones.
Let’s get right into it, shall we?
OSEA Ocean Cleansing Milk
This cleanser is very gentle and soothing. I love the creamy texture and how it makes my skin feel so soft and clean. Most of the ingredients are organic. Perfect gift for people who have sensitive skin.
Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil
One of my favorite face oils that helps reduce my acne scars. This face oil also makes my skin brighter and clearer.
Pai Skincare Chamomile and Rosehip Calming Day Cream
Very soothing and calming day cream that hydrates my skin and leaves it super soft for hours. Absorbs quickly with no irritation.
This is my all time favorite eye cream that helps reduce puffiness and dark under eyes. My husband and I have already gone through 3 tubes and we can’t live without it. My father in law is loving it too. This is definitely a perfect gift for those who have under eye issues.
Well Done Crystal Facial Roller
Jade facial roller helps to stimulate collagen production. I use it day and night after applying my face oils and moisturizers. It’s very cold to the touch which helps diminish the look of my pores.
Biossance Squalane + Mineral SPF 45
This is a lightweight, and non-greasy mineral sunscreen lotion that helps even skintone. I use it as a makeup base and it helps my makeup go on smoothly.
Dr Roebuck’s Bondi Hydrating Mist
I love the fruity scent of this mist. The pump is very easy to use and sprays a lot of mist out at once. I use it every time I feel my skin starting to turn dehydrated during the day. Absolutely love everything about this hydrating mist.
100% Pure Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants Potent PM Serum
This serum absorbs very quickly and feels so light on the skin. I love the refreshing citrus scent of this serum. It helps brighten an uneven skin tone. It’s also gentle enough to use around your eyes.
100% Pure Retinol Restorative Overnight Balm
Waking up with a soft, smooth and supple skin after using this overnight balm. Just a heads up though, you might feel weird and wonder how can you go to sleep with this overnight balm on because of the rich oily balm effect. But trust me, if you give it a try for one night, you will want to use it every night. This will be a perfect gift for those who are a fan of retinol and love to have younger looking skin.
Overtime Mask – Summer Fridays
Love the two in one benefits of this mask. Not only is it a mask but it’s also an exfoliator. This pumpkin mask is a lot more gentle than most of the pumpkin masks on the market. I use it once a week and every time it leaves my skin very soft and clean. This is a perfect holiday mask. I have a blog post about “Best Face Masks for All Skin Problems” that includes a full review of this overtime mask, feel free to check it out.
Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Revitalizing Eye Mask
My under eyes area are looking much brighter and hydrated. I was skeptical to try this eye mask at first as I had heard some reviews about how hard it is to apply. But after experiencing the process for myself, there’s no such thing as ‘hard to apply’ for this eye mask. It was simple and quick to apply and only 15 minutes of your day will make your under eyes smoother and supple.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope this post is helping you to get some ideas on clean skincare shopping for you, your friends and family.

It’s that joyous time of the year again and everyone is busy shopping for gifts, planning and hosting parties, and looking to send out holiday greeting cards. With all of the joyful tasks you have to do, I don’t want you to run out of energy, so I am sharing with you today 3 tips to create a memorable personalized holiday card with ease. So, you will get this family photoshoot ready and won’t have to deal with unnecessary stress.
Let’s dive into it.
Know where to take pictures and who will be your photographer
Planning where to take a picture is the first most important matter you should take it in consideration. If you have never been to the place before, I recommend you take an hour of your day to go visit the place and find the right spot you think will look good on your card.
You should go to there around the same time you’re planning to do a real photoshoot, to see how slow or busy your venue is. Planning where to take pictures ahead of time, will lower your stress and make everything a lot easier for your photoshoot day.
Looking into the rules and regulations of the place is also a good idea because some place will ask you to pay or will fine you if you take pictures without permission.
Knowing who will take your picture is also a must. Are you going to hire a professional photographer or will you ask your family member for a favor to take family photo for you.
If you’re planning to take pictures at your own home, that’s the best place of all. Make sure you list down all of your props and have them ready for your day.
This year we took a trip to Japan and planned to do a Christmas card photoshoot there. So we picked a garden near our hotel as a venue, Kiyosumi Garden. It is a traditional Japanese stroll garden located in Fukagawa, Tokyo. It was constructed along classic principles in 1878-85, during the Meiji Period. There are three big islands and a teahouse on the pond. The garden covers an area of about 81,000 square meters. (Source: Wikipedia)
We love the greenery, the bonsai trees and the architecture, that will make our card a little bit different than a usual Holiday cards. Here are a few photos from the garden and the photos we are using on our family photo Christmas card.
Know who will be in the pictures and what to wear
This might sound like a no brainer but seriously knowing who will be in the picture is a must. Will you include your furry baby(ies)? Knowing the amount of people can make your shoot go smoothly and you will be sure not to forget anyone.
With this tip, it will help you arrange the right outfits or special costumes for each person. Or at least you can tell everyone what type of cloths and or color you would like them to wear.
For our family, we tried and packed our outfits in the suitcase and once we were in Japan, we were ready to get everything done.
I would have to say this is one of the most important parts of your holiday cards, you have to know where to design and print your cards out. I personally recommend using Minted.com to create your holiday cards.

I’m into Cruelty Free & Vegan products this year as you already know. So I’m sharing this cute gift under $25 idea (Cruelty Free & Vegan products of course!) today for those who are on a budget to shop for their girlfriends and family.
I received these Cruelty Free & Vegan Nail Lacquers and So Rich Cuticle Oil Duo from NCLA to review on my Instagram. Since I’m very impressed with their products and I know they will make good gifts so I decided to go ahead and create this short Holiday Gift Gide post for you here today.
Happy new week love! I’m so excited to share with you today the first Holiday Gift Guide of the year. This year I am taking my gift guide to the next level because I am now paying more attention to what I choose to put on my skin and yours. So this gift guide will be about clean and cruelty free makeup products. Either you want to gift yourself or start introducing all clean makeup to your loved ones, this post will be a perfect place to start your clean beauty adventure.
I have put together this DIY Clean gift box that includes my favorites filled with all things clean and cruelty free from primer to vegan cosmetic cases, 15 products in total.
If you are ready, let’s dive into it!
The first product I put in this gift box is the Vapour’s HALO ILLUMINATOR. It is formulated with Vapour’s Herbal Enlightenment Complex of Frankincense, Tulsi and Lotus to support healthy glowing skin. Made with 70% organic ingredients, non-toxic and cruelty-free. What I love about this illuminator are that it’s so easy to apply with its silky smooth, lightweight and blend-able texture.
Also, this illumination stick will not clog pores which is why I love it so much. It gives such a beautiful healthy glow which you can use it day or night, at work or a night out.
I always apply it on the center of my forehead, under the brow, top of cheekbone, along the nose and on cupid’s bow. But you can actually apply it on the inner corner of your eyes, center of chin and use it to add some glow to your shoulders, collarbones and décolletage.
This Vapour’s HALO ILLUMINATOR will be a perfect gift for this upcoming holiday for those who seek for clean, cruelty free and glowy skin.
Two in one balm for perfect lips and cheeks. I love these balms a lot because they give such pretty colors and help to moisturize your skin and lips at the same time. They smell so good!
Vegan Cosmetic Case
I’ve picked a few transparent vegan makeup cases for you here. The reason why I choose transparent bags is because you can see through the bag which makes it a lot easier for you to find your products.
I hope you get some ideas on what products to put in your own holiday clean makeup gift box this year. I made this box for my sister so I hope she will enjoy all of the products!
Thank you for stopping by allaboutgoodvibes.com today. I will be posting more clean beauty products and holiday gift guides here soon. So make sure you stop by.
Have a wonderful week, love!
