By Emily Taylor, Editorial Assistant |
Hear us out: while it may not be fall quite yet (mark your cals, the first day is Monday!), the colder season is definitely approaching. We see it in the leaves changing colors, smell it in our holiday candles and taste it in our pumpkin spice lattes. But besides an assortment of "denim on denim on denim" fashion trends and vampy makeup, the introduction of fall means holidays and lots of gift giving. Not sure where to start? Below, we've rounded up the best-of-the-best beauty presents so good, we want to keep them for ourselves.

Homesick New York Candle ($30)
For the far-away friend or relative, Homesick candles make the perfect gift and absolutely nail the nostalgia with candles that represent every single state and several cities across the country.

For the friend in need of the royal treatment this season, we present you with Mason Pearson's Popular Mix Brush.
