Holiday Gift Guide: The Party Girl

Check out these 9 gifts -- some serious, some tongue in cheek -- for the party girl on your list!

Korres Party Survival Kit ($29) The perfect way to revitalize the bod the day after that incredible holiday bash. Includes 0.34 oz Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizer SPF 6, 0.17 oz Evening Primrose Eye Cream, 1.69 oz Guava Body Butter, 1.69 oz Guava Showergel, 0.47 oz Milk Proteins 3 in 1 Cleansing Emulsion, and Lemon Refreshing Chewing Gum (yes, even gum!)

DuWop iGels Variety Pack ($25) Three masks that refresh and soothe the eye area. Blue refreshes tired eyes with lavender, chamomile, and yarrow root, Purple smoothes fine lines with vitamin C and plant collagen, and Orange brightens darkness with arnica and vitamin K. Package with the Korres Party Survival Kit for a match made in after-party heaven.

Philosophy The Holiday Party ($28) A pair of delicious 3-in-1's, in Pomegranate Bubbly and Lavender Bubbly, for a festive bath. Would also make a great hostess gift for the girl who needs to unwind after throwing that New Year' Eve fiesta.

shu uemura Dazzling Topaz Diamante False Eyelashes ($25) For your friend who's always the life of the party! These lush brown lashes are bejeweled with amber colored crystals.

NARS Safer Set ($37) NARS Orgasm Multiple packaged with 2 NARS-branded condoms. Like I said when I first wrote this up, it's the perfect gift for the Samantha Jones of your group (NEVER even think about buying this for a Charlotte, though!). A portion of the sale benefits amfAR, The American Foundation for AIDS Research.

Estee Lauder Golden Alligator Compact ($33) Every party girl needs a fab compact to pull out of her Chanel purse for touch-ups. This golden compact from Estee Lauder is super cute, refillable, and won't break the bank, at only $33.

Dianne Brill Lip Lingerie - Panties in a Bunch ($47) I absolutely love this cheeky little lip gloss set, packaged like a box of bonbons. Set includes 6 knickers-inspired lip glosses in shades ranging from warm nude to scarlet.

LUSH Ibiza Party Shampoo ($26) Even though you might be jealous of the friend who's spending her holiday vacation in some far-off (and WARM) locale, send her off graciously with a bottle of this fab shampoo specifically formulated for late nights out clubbing. Get the big bottle, or buy a small one and pack it with other vacation and party essentials for a custom gift.

Benefit Justine Case ($30) Everything a party girl needs for on-the-go touchups in mini size. The face that the Some Kinda Gorgeous is embedded in the box is a bit annoying, but the other three products can be popped into even the tiniest clutch. Lilliputian versions of California Kissin' (breath freshening lip gloss), Benetint lip and cheek stain, and Eyecon dark circle fading miracle.
