Beauty gifts are among the biggest crowd pleasers—every woman is happy to receive one and many come pre-wrapped in clever packaging.

1. Kiehl's Limited Edition Creme Kenny Scharf Body Butter

kiehls

What's better than yummy Kiehl's body butter in a jar featuring a colorful label by pop surrealist Kenny Scharf? The soy milk and honey whipped body butter is air-whipped so it absorbs quickly to hydrate, protect and soften skin, plus it has no parabens, glycols or silicones. Best of all 100 percent of the net profits of the sale will support RxArt, a non-profit national organization that helps young patients overcome their challenges through art.

2. Nars Debbie Harry Palette

Nars Warhol

It's hard to choose just one product from the Nars Andy Warhol collection, but this Debbie Harry Palette is a certain standout. The palette is inspired by Andy Warhol's 1980 art work of the Blondie singer. The palette features four eye shadows in Twinkling Purple, Sparkling Turquoise, White Shimmer, Starry Black and two blushes in Shimmering Pink Champagne and Brilliant Cream.

Like many of the pieces in the collection, it features a quote from the pop artist, this one is: "I always say, one’s company, two’s a crowd, and three’s a party.” Right on, Andy.
