The Most Gorgeous Beauty Gifts, Inside And Out

It's the plot of countless holiday commercials and funny home videos: Kid unwraps pricey toy, then proceeds to fling it aside and make merry with the cardboard box, shiny paper and big, fancy ribbon that it came wrapped up in. We'd like to say that at a certain age you grow out of this obsession with pretty packaging, but these holiday beauty products prove otherwise. Artfully wrapped, boxed, and arranged in an array of lovely coverings, the only difference in the case of these gorgeous goodies is that we're just as delighted to play with the products they conceal as well.
