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, there's a beauty gift set to suit everyone.

As someone who loves beauty, I've really tried to select the most people-pleasing gifts. 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.

How I chose the best beauty gift sets 

  • Sought after brands: A beauty gift set should be an impressive present to open. I've kept to the most sought after brands in the beauty stratosphere. From luxury gifts from the likes of Charlotte Tilbury, MAC Cosmetics, Dior Beauty and Chanel, to the more affordable options.
  • A mix of budgets: A beauty gift set can either be a 'main' present or it can be a stocking filler, I've included plenty of options to cater for all budgets below. 
  • Easy to wrap: I'm sorry, but this is a bonus when it comes to a beauty gift set.
