We’ve always believed that when you have no idea what to get someone for the holidays, makeup is almost always a perfect option. Think about it: Makeup is one size fits all, so you don’t have to worry about getting the wrong size. It’s luxurious yet inexpensive, and it’s pretty and fun. Holiday collections are also everywhere, which makes gifting that much easier. Speaking of holiday sets, we’re obsessed with Birchbox-curated value sets, which come packed with fun products and represent the kind of variety that will make any beauty lover happy. Seriously, they have SO MANY OPTIONS. Need something for your mom? One of these will probably work. Trying to get your sister a cute gift? Ditto. Attempting to think of the perfect gift for your roommate? Your bestie? Your sister-in-law? Well…ok, you get the picture.
The point is that sets like these are total lifesavers for anyone who is looking stock up on gifts that’ll be perfect for just about anyone. There’s a kit chock-full of great hair products and another one with plenty of well-received skincare items. Our tip? Buy one of each and pull them out whenever you need a smart, elegantly packaged gift for just about anyone! Our favorite options are below.
