With the holidays fast approaching, everyone’s favorite season for gift giving (and, okay, receiving) is near. While finding the best holiday deals may not be what the season is really about, there’s no denying that treating your loved ones to amazing gifts is a huge part of how we celebrate. Unsurprisingly, this also means that the winter holidays are generally considered the most expensive of the year, with the average American spending close to $1,500 on holiday-related purchases throughout the season.1 And that’s not all — data shows that by early November, more than 60 percent of consumers have already started their holiday shopping.2
That’s why more and more retailers are now unveiling their festive decorations, Christmas deals, and holiday sales as early as September — way before famous annual shopping events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
That being said, you don’t have to blow your budget to score the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. Kiehl’s is offering high-value gifts at amazing prices all season long to help make your holiday shopping stress-free and enjoyable. Whether you shop in store or online, you can save big on the best skincare, hair care, and body care products, acing your holiday shopping (with money left to spend when those after-Christmas sales begin). Ahead, find Kiehl’s best holiday beauty deals for 2023 to shop for every person on your list.
