This holiday season, POPSUGAR Beauty tapped some of our favorite influencers, including popular brand owners, bloggers, pros, and celebrities, to share the gifts they would like to receive or give. Find more gifting inspiration here.
You can thank Jerrod Blandino for your Too Faced obsession! He created what is perhaps one of the most indulgent, kitschy brands out there. (Hello! There's a chocolate chip palette!) Jerrod is also one of the peppiest creatives in the beauty biz (learn more about how he got started here). Since he is just that spirited and has awesome taste (Too Faced partnered with Beautyblender and Kat Von D this year!), we wanted to get his advice on holiday gift giving.

It is important to know the difference between a gift and a present. Yes — there's a difference. A gift is more frivolous and simple, but a present is unique and takes a lot of love and thought. I always try and imagine what would make the person really happy — something they wouldn't buy for themselves, and something that is a true reflection of how I see them."
