The holidays are the perfect opportunity to make loved ones feel super special. This is, after all, the time of year when it's perfectly fitting to give and receive a little extra pampering. And what better way to show how much you care than to break away from the usual and gift something extraordinary? If you're at a loss for what to get the splurge-worthy people in your life, look no further than luxury beauty gift sets that'll excite anyone — even that person on your gifting list who seems to already have everything. The only trouble is, these gifts are so good, you'll have a hard time letting them go.
Luxury beauty is pretty much the crème de la crème of holiday gifting. The products are practically guaranteed to be good, the packaging is always top notch, and they're gifts that keep on giving because they can be used over and over again. Basically, the gift of high-end beauty is a win all around, and well worth the slightly steep price tag for the warranted "wow" factor when opened up by the lucky recipient.
And since the world of luxe beauty is expansive as any, you'll have no shortage of extravagant options to choose from to gift to your nearest and dearest. From fine fragrances to high-end hair products to sumptuous skin care, there's a posh pick for just about every person on your list.
For fans of gorgeously packaged, opulent perfumes, a collection of luxury fragrances is sure to fit the bill. And since no one does exclusive, expensive-smelling scents quite like Tom Ford, opt for the brand's Private Blend Collection Coffret, $350. The collectable set includes six iconic fragrances from the line, from summery and sultry Soleil Blanc to rich and woodsy Tobacco Vanille Oud. It's an ideal gift for someone who loves to switch up or even layer their signature scent.
Skin care connoisseurs can be hard to shop for, especially if they've already got a huge assemblage of go-to products in their arsenal. Fortify their collection by gifting them a set of luxurious serums that'll seamlessly incorporate into their routine, like the Tata Harper More Serum set. The two-serum kit, $138, has a fine-line reducing Rejuvenating Serum and a glow-boosting Resurfacing Serum — both of which are cult-faves from the line. Fans of the brand and new converts alike will be glad to receive the set, especially as winter takes a toll on skin.
And for the friend who spends all her disposable income on blowouts, give the gift of great hair — without the salon. Snag the supercharged combo of Dyson's revolutionary hair dryer and Ouai's much-loved hair care products in the Dyson Blown-A-OUAI Noir Set, available at Sephora for $399. In it you'll get the top-notch dryer along with Ouai leave-in conditioner, hair and body oil, texturizing spray, and styling mist. All that equals professional-level blowouts from the comfort of home.
Makeup mavens are also sure to be delighted by this year's selection of luxury beauty buys, like the Givenchy Beauty Red Collection. The $295 set of five bold matte lipsticks and five super-shiny nail lacquers is ideal for those who like to make a statement in bold shades of red — and with enough exciting shades to switch it up each day of the work week, she's sure to be pleased with this set for some time.
Plenty more high-end beauty kits await your discovery this holiday season, some of which you'll love so much you wouldn't be blamed if you decide to keep them for yourself. Browse below for a selection of the best luxe beauty sets to give (and keep) this year.
