Which are ridiculously irresistible because they’re so freakin’ festive. Not to mention practically pre-wrapped, saving you time.

But, you could literally just hand someone a Sephora bag, and it’d be better than a wrapped present because they’d know something awesome is inside.

Of course, those magical holiday gift sets can also be your kryptonite. Granted, you have good intentions with those samplers — you’re going to spread them among friends, right?
