Let's face it: The holidays are expensive — what with all the splurging on parties, gifts, and (cough) new clothes and makeup. The gift department is undoubtedly the most painful on the wallet, so naturally we started thinking about how we could save a few bucks while still giving killer presents.
We scoured the gift-set offerings this season, and challenged ourselves to see how many presents we could get out of one purchase. (Think: Sets that come stocked with deluxe sample-size or full-size products.) It's not about being cheap, it's about being resourceful and still giving gifts that everyone will love without going broke in the process. Buy a set and split it up, or buy a couple and mix and match to create little personalized bundles for your friends and family.
