Let the Holiday Gift Guides Begin!

I have been waiting for this day all year! Curating holiday gift guides never gets old, but this go around we at Beaut Bets have decided to do something a little different. Instead of a week of jam-packed guides (which are a bit overwhelming, no?), we’re going to showcase ONE swoon-worthy gift idea each day from now through December 23. That means three weeks of the best, prettiest, most to-die-for products for you to give or receive. I won’t lie—I’ve lost a little sleep trying to whittle my list down to the things that truly make my heart skip a beat, but I think you’ll agree with this first gift after just one whiff:


I’ve been curious about this scent since it launched—and promptly sold out. What does a boyfriend smell like (it’s been awhile) and do I really want to smell like one? Answer: It smells like you, after you’ve been wearing your favorite amber/vanilla/spicy floral perfume while cuddling with McSteamy (NOT McDreamy—that would be Old Spice) in front of a fireplace. So yes, I would like to smell like a boyfriend, and on a daily basis. Additionally, everyone who smells me when I wear my Boyfriend, wants one for herself. Get in line, girls.  –Bets
