Look, you’re busy. Between festive parties with friends, your office Secret Santa and going back home for the holidays, you need to think smarter—not harder—when it comes to your shopping this year. Did you know that you can get all of your gifts at the same place you stock up on your toothpaste, cold medications and late-night munchies? Shoppers Drug Mart is your one-stop-shop for gifts for everyone from your super-picky best friend to your mom who swears she doesn’t need anything.
And the best part? You’ll earn PC Optimum points with every purchase—an extra-special gift for yourself (and your wallet). Plus, you can get free delivery on all orders over $50.
We asked Shoppers Beauty Pro Chanel Cruz to share her must-have holiday gift sets (which are sure to sell out fast). Get ‘em before they’re gone!
The recipe for #NoFilter skin
Kylie Skin Hydrate + Glow Mini Set, $58
A four-step skincare routine, created by Kylie Jenner herself, in one Instagram-worthy package? We’re listening. “Skincare sets are great gifting options for those looking to get glowing skin,” says Cruz. This set of minis, exclusive to Shoppers Drug Mart, comes with a face mask, face moisturizer, eye cream and coconut body lotion that all work together to give you glowing, plump and moisturized skin on the go. Is your BFF going on a last-minute winter getaway to Cabo? She can just throw these in her carry-on and breeze through security, and when she lands at her destination, she’ll look like she just got a two-hour facial. A truly priceless gift. Thank us later!
The pop star-approved fragrance
Ariana Grande Cloud Gift Set, $82
*Out of stock online, but still available in store
“It’s my go-to fragrance,” says Cruz of the intoxicating mix of lavender blossom, juicy pear, creamy coconut, vanilla orchid and musk. “This set comes with a travel-size bottle that’s perfect for popping into your purse on those days where you’re racing to an after-work holiday event.” How cute is the retro cassette packaging that stylishly holds the two perfumes and a shower gel? And given that a full size of the Cloud eau de parfum is $78, this gift set is a steal. Fair warning to the receiver: people will stop you on the street and ask what perfume you’re wearing. It’s up to you whether you’d like to keep it a secret.
The moisture-boosting essential
Drunk Elephant Welcome to Lala Land, $84
This popular skincare brand—which is probably all over your TikTok For You page—just launched its new Lala Retro whipped moisturizer gift set, and it’s worth a spot under the tree. You’ll get a full and a travel size of this repairing and replenishing cream that’s infused with six rare, wild-harvested oils, a plant ceramide complex and omega acids. Translation: Your skin will be able to retain moisture for longer and be protected against environmental stressors. Who doesn’t want that?
The secret to perfect holiday hair
Quo Beauty 1” Ceramic Straightener, $37.99
With holiday parties in full swing, give the gift of fabulous hair with the high-performance 1” Ceramic Straightener from Quo Beauty. This straightener is made with rose gold ceramic technology that creates silky smooth, frizz-free, and high-shine results. Friends and loved ones with fully booked social calendars will be eternally grateful.
The self-care starter pack
Air and Water Holiday Bliss 7-Piece Beauty Luxuries Robe Set, $47
Nothing says “’Tis the season to ignore all of my responsibilities, put my phone on airplane mode and bury myself under the comforter” more than this luxurious set. It comes with a fluffy hotel-style robe, three rich body butters and two nourishing hand creams (a.k.a. everything you need for a night of rest, relaxation and Real Housewives). “This is the perfect set for you or someone on your list who needs the gift of self-care during this busy season,” says Cruz. With scents like Rosé Champagne, Wild Vanilla, Peony Bouquet and Rosé Cake, each lotion is more delicious-smelling than the next. Bonus tip: you can even divide them up among your friends for their stockings.
