If you haven’t checked the calendar, heads up, it’s officially December which means two things—1) Maria Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You is living rent free in your brain, and 2) it’s the start of gift-giving season. IDK about you, but I tend to wait until the very last minute to buy gifts, and every year I promise myself that “I’m going to start early this year!” until inevitably, it’s the week before Christmas and I’m still empty-handed. 

When I’ve tried to go all psycho-analysis on myself, I’ve realized that most of the time, the reason I wait is because I have no effing clue what to get anyone. Wait, OMG, you have the same problem? What a coincidence…because I just polled the entire Betches HQ to find out the Betchiest gifts of 2023 for that exact reason. 

Whether you’re in need of gifts for the group chat, for your boss’s boss’s boss, or for the Amazon delivery person (because they worked extra hard at your house this year, oops) we have the Betchiest breakdown on all the best gifts this year. So, get your credit card ready…Things are about to get ~festive~.

For the person who uses TikTok exclusively as inspo for their skincare routine

We all have the one person in the group that we turn to for beauty advice, the makeup girlies if you will—well, now’s the time to treat them to a little beauty treat or two. From makeup to skincare, and the best gift sets in the game, here are the perfect gifts to give the beauty lover in your life. (p.s. if you need even more inspo, we’ve got  an entire beauty gift guide waiting for you.)
