What makes
a great gift?

What goes into a great gift? It should be personal enough that they know you care, useful enough that they’ll use it, and a little bit indulgent. We may be a bit biased, but makeup and skincare can check all the boxes, especially when you make the perfect match between product and loved one. So here is the holiday gift guide that delivers comfort and joy—and seals your reputation as one great gifter.


For the one looking to up their skin game.

Our Great Skin Everywhere Set is the perfect gift for someone looking to commit to a routine in the new year. Whether this is a gift for her, him, or a gift for friends, this set includes all the steps you need to build better skin. Each set includes a cleanser, clarifying lotion, and moisturizer – in two options depending on skin type with travel-sized minis included.

For the one who loves a best-seller.

Set your white elephant’s imagination free this holiday season with our Clinique MVPs. This kit is especially curated to spotlight some of our most-loved products, including Moisture Surge, High Impact Mascara, All About Clean Liquid Facial Soap, and Quickliner for Eyes. You’re really going to win at Secret Santa this year.

For the one with winter skin (even in summer).

For that friend who’s always looking for the perfect dry weather moisturizer, Moisture Surge™ 100H is the answer, and 100 hours of hydration is a pretty epic gift. It’s lush gel-cream texture is soothing and cool on the skin, while Aloe Bioferment and HA Complex dive deep for a long-lasting dewy glow.

For the one breaking up with lash extensions.

It’s all about length, and High Impact™ Mascara totally gets it. This is the gift of lusher, plusher, longer-looking lashes in an easy swipe. Pair with High Impact™ Lash Amplifying Serum so your friend can jumpstart nourished lashes with a nightly conditioning serum. They won’t even miss those faux.

For the one on a nostalgia trip.

Remind your friend just how fresh a nostalgic scent can be. We’ll bet they remember Clinique Happy™ Perfume Spray from their past, or maybe it’s still a fave. Either way, this is a gift under $50 that brings it back with fresh vibrant notes of ruby red grapefruit, bergamot, Hawaiian wedding flower, and spring mimosa. Give the gift of smelling good.
