THE VERY BEST OF BEAUTY GIFT SETS

Whether it’s skincare, makeup, haircare or fragrance, gifting beauty products can be a bit of a gamble. But beauty gift sets? Well, they’re your golden ticket to present perfection. Not only will the lucky recipient receive tons of new products but there’s no guesswork needed to pick the right shade and they often come in beautiful boxes that don’t require gift wrap, so it’s one less thing for you to check off your list.

Yet the best thing about beauty gift sets is the fact there’s one to suit everyone on your list. Yes, even your hard-to-shop-for dad! So, without further ado, allow us to present to you the very best beauty gift sets on offer this year. We’ve even taken the liberty of matching each gift set to someone on your list to make things even easier.

GIFT FOR… YOU

To begin our ultimate beauty gift guide, we’re starting with the most important person you have on your list…you! If you’ve not yet tried the viral Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder, now is the time. Finely milled and weightless, this flawless invisible powder features micro-refined silica and soft-focus light-reflecting particles, which instantly blur imperfections and minimise the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles without creasing or caking.
