'Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that's a full month 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.
Every beauty lover knows that the most exciting part of the holiday season is the influx of beauty sets that hit the shelves as soon as Thanksgiving has passed. Who could be bothered with eggnog and gingerbread cookies when there are Glossier and Fenty Beauty bundles to be had?!
Not only are these giftable sets the best way to snag a group of cult-favorite products in one fell swoop, but they also allow us to try—and fall in love with—other products we wouldn't think to purchase on their own.
We rounded up the best of the best this year has to offer. From black light-activated beauty to sheet masks for your butt (yes, these are a thing) to a box of eyeliners, each of these is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Check out our picks, below—perfect for giving those you love, including yourself.
