Every holiday season we come together with family and friends to celebrate and give thanks. It’s a time for snuggling up by the fire with hot cocoa and watching those old reruns of "A Christmas Story" and "Miracle on 34th Street." But the holidays are not just about laying back and relaxing. With Christmas fast approaching, we are faced with the challenge of finding the perfect gift for all of our beauty-savvy friends. If you haven’t yet thought about what gifts to give, don’t worry! Here is our CG gift guide to finding the perfect present that won’t break the bank.
