For some of us, wrapping our gifts is just as important as shopping for them. Which is precisely why there’s much to be said about products with pretty packaging. Take a diamond-shaped makeup case, for instance, or bathside bottles too beautiful to wrap up. These offerings in their opulent shells render all embellishment unnecessary and make our lives SO. MUCH. EASIER.
Below are 6 gift ideas so pretty, all you have to do is stick a card on them. Scroll!
1. Social Misfit Cosmetics Unicorn Brushes With Holographic Diamond Case, P2,199
This brush kit comes in a diamond case with an iridescent sheen. But that’s only part of the reason why it’s so covetable. Wait ‘til you see what’s inside the holo case: 10 unicorn-inspired makeup brushes for the face and eyes. Magical!
Shop it here.
2. Olivos Soaps, P279 each
Sigh, the packaging of this stuff is an artisanal sight to behold. But it’s the soaps themselves that make this idea gift-worthy. Each and every bar evokes the scent of an exotic locale. Regardless of what you pick, you’ll leave your shower with silky-smooth skin.
Shop it here, here, and here.
3. NYX Lippie Countdown Advent Calendar, P2,500
Nothing’s better than lipstick—except maybe 24 lipsticks. This lipstick calendar houses NYX’s best-selling shades in tiny little drawers. Expect Holy Grails like the Soft Matte Lip Creams and new releases like the Lip Lingeries for every day of the holiday month. If only every calendar could be like this!
Shop it here.
4. Good Virtues Co. Bath & Body Care, P160-P286
Bath products might seem like a boring gift, but when they’re enveloped in a vibrant floral pattern, that’s a different story. Going beyond the pretty bottles, though, these shower staples are great for your hair and skin. Each one is formulated with nutrients, minerals, and vitamins. After every bath, you’ll bloom!

5. Kailijumei Flower Jelly Lipstick With Mirror in Flame Red, on sale at P990 (limited time only)
Because of how utterly gorgeous it is, we’d almost feel guilty using this lipstick. Almost. The transparent bullet contains gold flecks and a tiny flower in the center. Once you swipe it on, the clear gloss transforms into a rosier version of your natural lip color. And as if that weren’t enough , the chrome-red packaging features a small mirror for easy application.
Shop it here.
6. Pyunkang Yul Skincare, P925-P1,450
Its apothecary-inspired packaging makes this skincare line look trustworthy already. And you know what, it actually is. A rising Korean brand, Pyunkang Yul is designed for any skin type, including sensitive skin. Its products are crafted with gentle, skin-loving ingredients guaranteed to keep breakouts at bay. For the committed aesthete, this is a skincare fantasy come to life.
