Forget the tree, the lights, the snow, and even chilly nights spent bundled up in front of Netflix binging on Top Chef. As great as each of those things are, the best part of the season is the limited-edition holiday collections. This is the time of year where top beauty brands wrap up their very best products in a single, specially-packaged bundle that makes our hearts beat just a little faster. Our favorite Tom Ford lipsticks in a single box? Yep, it's happening. A Glossier beauty kit in our favorite shade of pink?
Yes, the brand delivered.
These holiday collections not only look beautiful, but they also come at price points that, when compared to purchasing them separately, are brilliant ways to grab your dream products at a friendlier price point. Not that you're buying these for yourself, of course—these are definitely all purchases for our loved ones. Keep scrolling for a peek at 12 of the best holiday collections your favorite beauty brands put together just for the season.

The search for the perfect winter-ready candle is over—we found one, two, three of them. Diptyque has curated a collection of holiday candles that makes us want to deck the halls. This collection's three scents are Sparkling Incense, Delicious Spices (with notes of gingerbread!), and The Festive Fir Tree.
A rose-themed holiday collection is not something we're about to argue with. It's actually kind of brilliant—who doesn't want to open up a box filled with luxurious pink goodies inside? That's exactly what Herbivore has done in its collaboration with Urban Outfitters. This beauty collection includes a Pink Clay Bar Soap, Pink Clay Exfoliating Mask, and Rose Hibiscus Face Mist. Everything is—dare we say it—coming up roses in this gift set.
Yes, this is a lip kit and, yes, this is perhaps the most ingenious packaging we've seen in a holiday beauty collection yet.

The classic Rouge Louboutin Lip Color is collected here in three finishes: Silky Satin, Velvet Matte, and Sheer Voile.
We were very curious to see what every It girl's favorite beauty brand would whip up for the holidays, and the Black Tie Set is everything our hearts desired.
