We know it's hard to find the right gifts for your loved ones, so we've compiled a ton of fashion and beauty-focused gift guides tailored to a range of interests and budgets. Check out our latest below and find more right here.

Korean beauty's popularity in the U.S. market has remained steady ever since its initial meteoric rise several years ago — and with good reason. Products developed for K-beauty brands tend to be especially innovative, fun and (here's the really important part) effective. What's more, Korean products often also have the most adorable packaging in existence (think lip glosses shaped like teddy bears and hand lotion in a banana-shaped containers). All of these attributes make these items especially giftable.

Today, the Korean beauty phenomenon goes way beyond sheet masks and essences, and it can all become kind of overwhelming. So we tapped several experts of the K-beauty world — Charlotte Cho of Soko Glam, Christine Chang and Sarah Lee from Glow Recipe, Alicia Yoon of Peach & Lily and Jessica Jeong, the head of U.S. marketing for the cult Korean brand Missha — to share their favorite products that will make the best, unique gifts this holiday season.
