Oribe products smell like pure heaven (what I imagine heaven smells like), so I always recommend the brand as a perfect holiday gift. Oribe's collection of luxurious hair care products and treatments have taken the industry by storm, and it's no secret why. From the luxurious packaging to the best-selling products, the brand is loved by many. The Beautiful Color Travel Collection is one of my top picks because it includes a travel size shampoo and conditioner, plus a full size split end seal. This set would be great for someone who travels often and has colored treated hair. My luxury gift guide this season includes not one, but two Oribe sets.
