25 Beauty Gift Sets That Are An Unboxing Dream

We have to give credit where credit is due: Perhaps more so than any other industry, beauty brands have really figured out how to nail the whole Instagrammable packaging thing. From immaculately carved glass jars (filled with even more immaculate dollops of fancy face cream), to zero-waste eyeshadow palettes that are every bit as covetable as conventional ones, every year, it seems, beauty packaging tends to just get better and better (and more sustainable!).
However, things get taken to a whole other level during the holidays, when brands release their best and brightest offerings: Jam-packed advent calendars and boxes galore, plus limited-edition sets that are ideal for sharing with friends or keeping all for yourself. (We're not above a little "to me, from me" indulgence, mmkay?)
With gifting season in full swing, we've put together the best hair, makeup, and skin care holiday sets that are too good to not shop this year — starting at just $19.
