Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
Sure, the average hair dryer may get the job done, but why drive a used Toyota if you can get behind the wheel of a Roll Royce? Unlike any of its predecessors, Dyson’s dryer is equipped with a 13 blades in its motor which takes its sound frequency above human range, and a powerful airflow that cuts drying time in half. Even better: The dryer is good for your hair’s health. It’s equipped with a glass bead sensor that measures temperature every 20 seconds so that your strands never get overheated.

This soft silk pillowcase will not only guarantee your giftee a good night’s rest, it also prevents waking up to a bad hair day. Silk will stop strands from dragging, pulling, and creasing as they sleep.
Buly 1803 Pommade Concrète Balm
When it comes to hand creams, it doesn't get more rich and luxurious than Buly's tube. The historic French beauty brand's formula is enriched with soothing chamomile water and moisturizing shea butter to keep weathered hands soft and smooth.

Mason Pearson Popular Mix Brush
There's a reason this brush that costs more than your cable bill can be found in every hair-pro's kit. Its boar bristles distribute natural oils from the scalp and down the hair shaft to condition strands while removing debris. The brush's rubber base also forms to the contours of your head as you use it.

Givenchy Beauty Le Soin Noir Lace Face Masks x 4
We like a lot of face masks, but we’ve never loved one as much as Givenchy’s lace version. Selfie opportunities aside, its creamy formula made of brightening black algae sap, moisturizing oat extract, and firming kigella extract, is a luxe way to a hydrated, glowing complexion.
Givenchy | $330
Clive Christian 1872 Women's Pure Perfume Spray
If you really want to express your feelings through a holiday gift, Clive Christian’s fragrance is your best bet. The hero note of this scent is rose de mai, which has often been associated with the presence of an angel.
