I'm a Beauty Editor, But I Still Want These 31 Gift Sets

As a beauty editor, I am lucky enough to be sent the newest beauty products to test and review regularly. I am so excited each time I get to unbox the latest launches to try and report back on for work. A dream, right? You might think that I get jaded with the number of beauty products that pass by my desk, but the reality is far from that, especially when it comes to beauty gift sets during the festive season.

Beauty gift sets always make a good present—whether it's for a lucky recipient or even for yourself. I often buy beauty sets for loved ones at this time of the year. Whether it's miniature sizes of their favourite makeup or a limited-edition candle, they always go down well. They're also a great way to try a few different products from a brand (usually with great savings, FYI), and of course, there is the beautiful packaging and contents that come with gift sets.

Despite my job—or perhaps because of it—I have a long wish list of beauty gifts that I'm lusting after this year. From haircare and skincare to fragrance and wellness, to stocking fillers and investment gift sets, these are the beauty gift sets that any beauty lover will want to receive.
