A gift of self-care like a manicure is always a win. Whether you're treating yourself, your mom, or your best friend, everyone enjoys freshly buffed, trimmed, and glossy fingernails. But this year, when the impulse to buy a $25 gift card to the nail salon strikes (and it will, because it's easy), consider the more thoughtful present for a mani lover: a DIY nail kit.
Sure, back in the day a dopp kit with stainless-steel nail clippers might have been a boring gift. But today, with the way nail art has blown up, manicure sets are chic and useful — with sharp trimmers, cuticle oil, top coat, and an emery board, all held inside a suede carrying case.
Ahead, find the best manicure kits money can buy — the gift that will help you, or your best friend, quit a steady salon habit.
