The Cut Staff’s Very Personal Beauty Gift Guide


Every good gift-giver knows that the best presents are personal. Which is why most gift guides are kind of a crap shoot: How can you expect to learn anything useful from an impersonal listicle? Because we recognize that all of us are buying gifts conforming to very specific parameters — like trying to find a moisturizer for your mom that doesn't smell floral (harder than you might think) — the Cut has devised this highly specific gift guide based on members of our staff. We hope that reading through archetypes like "Your Friend Who Has a Sex Podcast" and "Your Friend Who Is an Unfussy Human" will help you to make your own very personal gifting decisions this season, whether they be presents for others or for yourself.
