21 Holiday Beauty Gift Sets That Are Universal Crowd-Pleasers

Updated 11/12/18

Holiday beauty gifts sets are a saving grace this time of year for many reasons. A) You'll get more bang for your buck by gifting friends or family with a variety of exciting new finds for a fraction of the price. B) You'll need not worry about gifting someone with something they might not like, as variety is the name of the game when it comes to beauty gift sets. And C) They're the ultimate solution for the constant conundrum that haunts those of us who are gift-challenged every holiday season.

Plus, another great perk (or challenge, depending on your outlook) is just how many holiday gift sets our favorite beauty brands and retailers present us with each year.
