(Photos courtesy)Hate to break it to you, but you have one more shopping weekend before Christmas. If that causes you to go into a panic, serves you right. Just kidding! Relax we have you covered. We present to you our last, last-minute beauty gift guide to help you in your quest to find the perfect gifts for the various beauty fanatics in your life. You're welcome.

For your sister:

We suggest an all-in-one gift like Kiehl's Creme de Corps Collection. We're big fans of Kiehl's Creme de Corps, and this gift set is sure to please any working woman. If lotion isn't quite her thing, why not a nice fragrance? Bath & Body Works luxe Forever Midnight perfume is sensual and spicy, yet very wearable. Your sister can thank you later.

Kiehl's Creme de Corps, $65, NeimanMarcus.com.
Bath & Body Works Forever Midnight, $45, BathandBodyWorks.com.

For your mom:

(Photos courtesy Le Couvent des Minimes and Clarisonic)If your mom is one of those people who's constantly saying, "Don't buy me anything. I don't need anything," it's time to really treat her. Right now, we're really into Le Couvent des Minimes Botanical Cologne of the Minims Christmas Trio, which includes an invigorating citrus fragrance, shower gel, and soap bar. But if you really want your mom to take a load off, treat her to the indulgent but oh-so fun Clarisonic Pedi Foot Transformation System. It buffs, soothes, and transforms feet a.k.a Momma will be happy.

Le Couvent des Minimes Botanical Cologne of the Minims Christmas Trio, $48.50, LeCouventdesMinimes.com.
Clarisonic Pedi Foot Transformation System, $199, Clarisonic.com, Sephora, Nordstrom, Dillard's.

For your BFF:

(Photos courtesy Sephora and Too Faced)Although your BFF would probably be content with a night of Domino's and Love Actually, it's time to show her how much she means to you with something pretty. Help her channel her inner Alexa Chung with Eyeko's Alexa Chung Eye Do Mascara & Liquid Eyeliner Set. (Finally, a cat eye made easy.) But in case your bestie is more of an on-the-go type, this cell phone and makeup combo case from Too Faced is a must.

EyeKo Alexa Chung Eye Do Mascara & Liquid Eyeliner Set, $39, Sephora and Sephora.com
Too Faced Jingle All the Way Cell Phone Case, $19, TooFaced.com.

For your work colleague/sort of friend:

(Photos courtesy L'Occitane and Philosophy)For that person you work with and are sort of/kind of friends with, finding the perfect gift can be a real challenge. But you can't go wrong with practical things that smell nice. And by that we obviously mean soap. L'Occitane has a set of four Bonne Mere Soaps plus tray that are probably the cutest little soaps we've seen in a while. Looking for a gift that's a tad more holiday centric? Philosophy's Holiday Handbook gift set features three hand creams with flavors as scrumptious as Christmas itself. We're talking Home-made Honey Buns, Spiced Gingerbread Cookie, and Cranberry Medley. Who's hungry now?

L'Occitane Set of Four Bonne Mere Soaps and Tray, $25, QVC.com.
Philosophy Holiday Handbook, $16, Philosophy.com.

For your mother-in-law:

(Photos courtesy Lollia and Frederic Malle)Whether this will be the first holiday you've spent with your mother-in-law or it's the 10th one, finding the perfect gift is always a nail biter. Show her you care with a gift that will liven up her whole home. Frederic Malle's Joyeux Noel Candle smells of pine, amber cinnamon, and get ready, cotton candy. Now we're talking. And if you really want to win your mother-in-law over, give the gift that even Oprah would love. Lollia's Relax Foaming Evening Bubble Bath was featured as one of Oprah's favorite things and has some of the most gorgeous packaging. You know what that means? No wrapping!

Frederic Malle Joyeux Noel Candle, $95, FredericMalle.com, Barneys, Barneys.com.
Lollia Relax Evening Bubble Bath, $34, LolliaLife.com.

For the teen girl in your life:

(Photos couretsy Caboodles and Topshop)It might be a few years since you last ventured into a mind of a teenage girl. Well, news flash: They like a lot of the same things you do. So if you're panicking thinking you have to get something that has Justin Bieber's face on it, calm down. You don't have to venture into Bieber territory...unless you want to. Caboodles—yes, your favorite beauty organizer from middle school—has served up some pretty cool beauty cases this holiday season. This silver Pro Cosmetic Case will hold so much makeup, your teen won't know what hit her. And if the teen in your life really wants to express herself, Topshop has some super cool nails stickers to let her spell out just what she's feeling.

Caboodles Pro Cosmetic Case, $33.75, Ulta, Ulta.com.
Topshop Exclamation Nail Stickers, $6, Topshop, Topshop.com.

We hope our beauty gift guide will let you breathe one big sigh of relief. Oh, but we're not quite done. We didn't forget about you! Yes, we think you deserve a little something-something for doing all this hard work. That's why we're letting you treat yourself to Domino's and Love Actually. Best.Gift.Ever.
