Holiday Value Sets for Keeping, Splitting or Gifting

One of the best things about this time of year are all of the holiday gift sets that are coming out. Whether you give them out as gifts, or keep them as gifts for yourself, they offer amazing value. One of my favourite things, when we were younger, a few friends would do a gift exchange. Usually it was a little something for each person. I'd buy a few gift sets and separate them for each of my friends; nail polish, lip glosses even some treats like chocolates. It was such a fun thing to do.

So today, I'm going to show you some of my favourite gift sets that are currently available. Give them, split them or keep them, it's up to you!

Josie Maran Glowing Argan Oil Skincare Essentials (keep it)
This set has Josie Maran's well known 100% Pure Argan Oil and other items that will get your skin glowing. The items in this set work great together and the Argan Enlightenment Illuminzer is currently my go-to highlighter. This set is going to make your skin look great and glowing while you attend all those holiday parties.

Fresh Mini Mask Spa (split it)
There isn't a single lady out there that I can think of that doesn't like face masks. It's super relaxing and feels great. This gift set includes 5 x 30 ml masks (a pretty good size). Since each of these masks are different (Sugar Face Polish, Rose Face Mask, Umbrian Clay Mattifying Mask, Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask and Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask), it does help if you know what your friends prefer. While you're splitting it up, think about keeping one of them for yourself. The Sugar Face Polish and Black Tea Instant Perfecting Masks would be my top two choice!

Fresh Sugar Lip Power Couple (gift it)
These cold Canadian Winters are hard on our lips and surely your friends will agree, you can never have too much lip balm right now. So why not give them this cute Fresh Sugar Advance Therapy lip duo? The lip treatment smells like yummy lemon while the nourishing lip balm has a refreshing mint smell. Your friends will love you for getting this for them.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Mini Lipstick Charm (keep, split or gift it)
If you really want to spoil someone, why not get this mini lipstick trio from Charlotte Tilbury? This set contains Red Carpet Red, Very Victoria and Amazing Grace. These colours can easily go from day to night and are perfect to bring in the New Years. Whoever gets this gift will receive compliments and think about you each time.

Demeter Wet and Wonderful 1oz set (gift it)
We all have that friend who loves thunderstorms and the smell of the ocean. Why not help them enjoy that smell year-round with Demeter's Wet and Wonderful trio. They can be worn alone, layered, or used as a room spray, and are sure to bring back some old memories.

Burt's Bees Kissable Color (split or gift it)
Available in both a cool and warm collection, these lip shimmers make for a perfect stocking stuffer for that person who wants to moisturize and have just a touch of colour at the same time. Plus it's supporting a company who values bees and sustainability and the planet!

The Body Shop Handfuls of Happiness (split or gift it)
Along with dry lips comes dry hands. This trio comes in Moringa, Shea and British Rose scents. This set can easily be split into three or gifted to one individual. After all, I'm sure we all have one of those friends that should have some hand cream at their office, in their purse and at home. Help your friends keep their hands happy.

ColourPop Mile High Shadow Kit (keep or split)
Personally, this one would be really hard to give away. ColourPop eyeshadows are fantastic and very pigmented. The Mile High set offers a selection of  metallic, glitter and matte finishes in beautiful neutral colours. You can't go wrong with this set. Perfect for any makeup lovers on your list (or yourself!)

Got your eye on anything this year?
