Beauty gift sets are some of our favorite holiday presents, and usually they're real crowd-pleasers. However, sometimes you may receive beauty gifts that you just won't ever use, whether it's a fragrance you're not a huge fan of or a makeup palette you already own. Whatever the case may be, regifting is the easy answer to this common situation. Just as there are guidelines for gifting with beauty presents, regifting with unwanted items also requires a few rules. Keep scrolling to learn three easy tips on how to tactfully regift.
If you have a BFF with a January birthday who loves makeup, then grab a handful of leftover stocking stuffers, and create a gift set of your own. You know the recipient well, so why not help them explore new brands and trending colors by combining unwanted makeup? This solution is ideal for getting rid of those minis that were stuffed in your stocking or even leftovers from a set you received that you already own or aren't feeling. Either way, this DIY route is easy, free, and will make a splendid gift.
This one goes without saying, but much like regifting the person who originally bought you the gift, don't give your monogrammed makeup bag or personalized fragrance to anyone. Instead, find a new use for it. We could all use a little more organization in our lives. Use that hundredth makeup bag as storage for those lip colors you save for special occasions, and keep the fragrance you're not so keen on in a guest bathroom for visitors who may want to try it out. It's all about getting creative with this one, but definitely don't wrap it up and give it away.
Give the gift of pampering—because we all love any excuse to indulge in an at-home spa session. A bath set of body wash, lotion, and oils can be bulky, and a true beauty girl already has her bathroom stocked. Pass on the gift set to anyone from a co-worker to your mom, and you're guaranteed to bring a smile to their face.
