Hollywood glam squads have unrivaled access to some of the starriest tresses and faces in the world — and as a result, some of the most innovative beauty products and coolest visage gadgets can be found their beauty kits. But the makeup, hair and skincare departments aren’t their only areas of expertise. Working with the rich and famous — and even joining their ranks — also means having many of life’s luxuries within arm’s reach.

That’s why we polled a handful of Hollywood beauty insiders to spill on the gifts that they love to give and receive. For Cassandra Grey, founder of the star-loved Los Angeles beauty boutique Violet Grey, Ladurée macarons and new skincare brand Eighth Day’s “miracle serum” are her go-tos for gifting. And when it comes to what they really want to unwrap for the holidays, beauty experts including makeup artist Kate Synnott (clients include Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning), board-certified dermatologist Dr. Shereen Idriss (who works with Ashley Graham and Paloma Elsesser) and A-list facialist Joanna Vargas (Elisabeth Moss, Greta Gerwig and Julianne Moore are in her care) are among those who are wishing for more quality time.

Salts from Senseurs D’Orient and L’Objet smell absolutely divine! Kopari makes incredible coconut sugar scrubs which smell sweet but also nourish the skin with natural oils.

Le Labo Santal 26 Cement Candle

“The Le Labo Santal 26 Cement Candle is the perfect gift for your boss or your investor, or whoever is making sure your bills are paid. It’s perfect because the warm and sophisticated signature scent is made of the finest ingredients, making it unique and inimitable. The concrete vessel is so refined, fitting that Axel Vervoordt aesthetic made so hot right now by Kim and Kanye, and is perfect because of its massive-yet-minimal, four-wick size. This will last the recipient all winter and whenever they see it or smell it, they will think of you fondly, remembering your exquisite, tasteful gift-giving ability, therefore reminding them of their worthy investment in you. Trust me on this one – it will be the best $485 you have ever spent.” Cassandra Grey, Violet Grey founder
