Finding the perfect Christmas present can be no mean feat, but we all know a chic beauty gift set can be a fail-safe option. Plus, they're usually easy to wrap and look substantial enough to hand over. Obviously, you can't choose just any old gift set - for example, it's probably not a good idea to buy a lipstick trio for a friend who rarely wears lippy - but if you know your sister/mum/best friend/work wife is always desperate for the latest Glossier launch, or she's forever reading up on skincare in her Caroline Hiron's book, there's a beauty gift set to suit everyone.
RELATED: Shop the best gifts for her
As someone who loves beauty, I've really tried to select the most people-pleasing gifts. From Glossier to Chanel, MAC, and Charlotte Tilbury, I've looked up all the beauty faves and tried to be mindful of all budgets. If you're looking up gifts for yourself (it's a thing!), grab your pen and paper because your list to Santa is about to get LONG.
