With the holidays fast approaching, everyone’s favorite season for gift giving (and, okay, receiving) is nearly upon us. 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 $1,000 on holiday-related purchases throughout the season.* And that’s not all—data shows that by early November, more than 60% of consumers have already started their holiday shopping.* That’s why more and more retailers are now unveiling their festive decorations, Christmas deals, and holiday sales as early as September—way before the famous annual shopping “holidays” like Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
That being said, you don’t have to blow your budget (or brave massive crowds) to score the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. At Kiehl’s, we’re 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 our 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 deals for 2022.
These perfect pairings deserve a spot on your holiday shopping list.
