Come holiday season, I often find myself overwhelmed by the number of incredible beauty gift sets available at places like Sephora, Nordstrom, Ulta, and BlueMercury.
Soooo I decided to do a guide that specifically focuses on what are (in my opinion) the absolute best beauty gift sets for skincare and makeup.
A lot of amazing skincare and makeup brands release limited edition sets that include smaller, trial-sized versions of their products at deep discounts, so it’s an amazing time to stock up for yourself too.
Below are my picks from this year.
Note that some of these from last year have sold out, but I’ll be updating the links to newer gift sets as they become available.
I spent hours combing through ALL the sets available and narrowed it down to a selection that I think offer the best value. Enjoy!

BlueMercury is one of the BEST places to snag beauty gift sets. Each year they do exclusive combos (that often include full-size products) and this year's is one of their best.

Laneige's Dream & Wonder Gift Set features their cult-favorite Lip Sleeping Mask in a full-sized original scent and two deluxe sample-sized, limited-edition scents.
For just $7 more than the Lip Mask alone, you get not one, but two mini masks to take on the road with you wherever you go.
