Holiday gift sets make for an amazing present for a few reasons. For one, you get to try new makeup and skincare products without committing to a full size. Secondly, they’re the perfect size for travel! Take a look at our top picks for the best beauty gift sets for women!


Best Holiday Beauty Gift Sets


One of my very favorite things about holiday shopping is the variety of beauty gift sets for women – mini samples of your favorite products that not only make the perfect companions for travel but they’re also super affordable!

I always stock up on a gift set or two from MAC, Sephora, and Lancôme. They have some of my favorite products and most of the time you get so much more bang for your buck than buying just one item!

You pay the regular price for your favorite beauty product but you get all the bonus mini samples as part of the gift set. Both my beauty routine and my travel packing needs win – it’s the perfect combination of practical and stylish travel beauty products.
