If you have a friend or family member just as obsessed with makeup, hair, and skin care as you are, these gifts will get them grinning from ear to ear, and they're all for $30 or less. Now that's something to carol about. On Kirbie: Shoshanna dress

What happens when anime and beauty collide? We get a gorgeously girlie makeup palette, and that's exactly what the collaboration between Shu Uemura and Japanese artist Takashi Murakami has delivered. The Heart-Full Pink Parallel Eyes and Cheek Palette ($69) contains a smattering of pretty pink makeup hues. Seven iridescent and satin eye shadows dance around a cheek color, which are perfect for creating a delicate, feminine look. The kit also contains two dual-sided shadow brushes for ultimate flexibility in your makeup application. But what we love most about this palette is the adorable illustrations that decorate the front of the case, bringing us back to our Sunday mornings watching Sailor Moon with a bowl of Cheerios. Who doesn't love some nostalgia with their makeup?
