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.

Sarah Potempa is one of these most fun celebrity stylists to follow on Instagram. Whether she's helping celebrities like Lea Michele or Kate McKinnon get ready for the red carpet or taking on a viral challenge (such as 100 days of hairstyles), she offers endless inspiration.

She also created one of the most genius hot tools ever — the Beachwaver — which is a rotating curling iron. And this year (for the second time!), Beachwaver is the official sponsor of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris, meaning it will be used to give all of those Angels bombshell waves.

But before Sarah heads to Paris, she shared her top picks for holiday gifting and approach to shopping:

"I love giving personal and meaningful gifts," she told us via email. "Being in the beauty industry, I have a lot of incredibly talented friends that have created their own lines out of their experience. I love supporting them and spreading the love."

"My friend Troy Surratt is a makeup artist who has been in the industry for years, and he created this eyelash curler. He personally showed me how to use it and told me to hold it on my lashes for at least 10 seconds and bend it under. I would gift it to my friends who are also working moms, because even if you don’t have a lot of time to get ready in the morning, giving your lashes a quick curl really makes a difference!"

"This is the iron used backstage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and it creates beautiful waves on any hair type and texture. We partnered with Swarovski to design the iron specifically for the Victoria’s Secret Angels, and it’s amazing that you can use the same tool right at home!"

Beachwaver Pro Swarovski Limited Edition ($250)

"The giving keys are so meaningful, and I've personally gifted them to so many friends when I feel like they needed it. They help create real connections between people because once you feel like you have fulfilled the word on the key, you pass it along to someone who needs it more than you. It’s the perfect gift to remind your loved ones how much they mean to you!"

Giving Keys ($39)

"My team loves collaborating with Tarte, and they are always creating such fun, innovative makeup. I love to switch up my lip color depending on my mood or the occasion, and this set comes with such a great variety of colors. It’s the perfect gift to give to your female relatives, because there’s a color that everyone can wear!"

"There are so many cool hair accessories in Jen Akin's collection. It's the perfect gift for your niece or a friend who is up to date with the latest trends and loves to play around with their hair. One of my favorite things is to incorporate these accessories into different braids and beachwaved hair styles!"

Jen Atkin x Chloe + Isabel Hair Accessories ($32)

"The Mini On Set brush is the perfect stocking stuffer! The nylon-boar bristle combination keeps strands smooth, healthy, and frizz free. It’s perfect for sticking in your purse or clutch for quick touch ups. I would give it to any of my friends who are always on the go!"

"My friend Matin, who is an incredible celebrity makeup artist, was one of the founders of Afghan hands. He is a wonderful, talented person who gives back. His organization helps Afghan women who have suffered through trauma become educated and earn a living through embroidery. Each scarf is beautiful and detailed, and proceeds go to women and children in need. It’s a gift you can feel good giving to anyone and each scarf tells a story.
As a mom with kids, I think this scarf is so beautiful because it represents motherhood, and when I'm traveling, I like to have a constant reminder of family."

"Fiona Stiles is an amazing makeup artist and friend of mine. Her lip crayons have been used on so many celebrities and are perfect to grab and go. Even if you don't wear any other makeup, adding a pink lip is always a good idea, and this color lasts all day. Any friends who are beauty gurus would be sure to appreciate it!"

Fiona Stiles Color Impact Matte Lip Crayon ($16)

"A lot of my friends travel in the Winter and this is a great gift for anyone who is going somewhere warm! These bags are stylish, durable, and handmade by artisans all over the world. Plus the proceeds go directly back to the artisans and their families. When you're going to the beach, it's the perfect time to accessorize with fun pops of color that you may not wear in day-to-day life. This artisan is from Madagascar and the colors are meant to represent Madagascar's vibrant culture, which I love."

The Little Market Beach Bags ($136)
