’Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that’s a full month (31 days!) in which we’ll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life—and maybe even a spoiled pet or two.
What gets us the most stoked for holiday beauty? Not the influx of glittery, sparkly products, but rather, all of the sets that brands put out this time of year that make the task of gift-giving way simpler.
We all have at least one beauty-obsessed friend in our lives, and what could be a more thoughtful gift than a limited-edition set of a brand’s most covetable products or a neatly packaged assortment of purse-sized essentials? Throw in some festive holiday packaging, and you have a gift that’s bound to be a crowd-pleaser. Have we mentioned that you normally end up saving quite a few more bucks than if you bought each product separately? It’s a win-win.
But we’re being realistic here. Some of these sets can get pretty pricey, so we rounded up the season’s best offerings for $50 and under. Starting at just $16, the 20 must-have beauty gifts await, below.
