We all have that friend or family member who's impossible to shop for come the holidays, whether they have every desired product or they've shunned material goods altogether. For that individual, we propose something that doesn't come in a box and requires no unwrapping but guarantees they'll get to enjoy a little time for themselves and make some memories. Give them the gift of experience, as there is an endless list of luxurious beauty services and activities that promise to pamper and please that special someone. So if you're at a loss for deciding on a gift that's sure to impress your hardest-to-please beauty lover this holiday season, consider an experiential gift.
