Best Value Beauty Gift Sets for Christmas 2018

Christmas is only 5 days away, and in case you’re a last minute shopper, I’m sharing the best value beauty gift sets for Christmas 2018. Whether your budget is $5 to $350, there are so many options available at your local Shoppers Drug Mart, Loblaws Superstore or Sephora. To celebrate the holiday season, I’m also giving away a luxury beauty prize set from Burt’s Bees and Laura Mercier. Keep reading below to enter to win!

Best Value Beauty Gift Sets for Christmas 2018: under $40

I’ve yet to meet a person who didn’t like bath bombs. It’s why a festive bath bomb set is the ultimate stocking-stuffer. These Me Bath bath bombs in Snow Kissed Cranberry are cruelty free and around $5. I’ve spotted them at Loblaws Superstore and are perfect for adding into a gift basket as well.

Burt’s Bees is also a universally-appreciated brand, with its natural ingredients and versatile products. This year both the Essentials Travel Kit and Naturally Soft Hands gift sets are lovely for grandparents, caregivers and Secret Santa. I’ll be giving away the Essentials Travel Kit, be sure to enter the form below!

Who isn’t in need of a new lip balm in the winter months? This EOS Holiday set is around $10, and I’ve seen it at Loblaws! It makes a great gift for teachers or young teens as well.

For around $30, the Fresh Destination Sugar Lip kit is a wonderful value. You get three minis of Fresh’s iconic Sugar Lip Treatment, and can even break them apart to share. You can also offer a full size Fresh Zodiac Collection Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy collection. This item pairs perfectly with a new deck of tarot cards.

Best skincare gift sets for Christmas

This year, I was introduced to Laline, a body care brand from Israel. Their cornerstone ingredient is dead sea salt, combined with luxurious moisturizers. All month, I’ve been using the Dead Sea Minerals Salt Scrub with Argan Oil in the shower to remove dead skin. The packaging is so lovely, and perfect for gift-giving to bring the spa home.

I’m a MASSIVE fan of Fresh skincare. Their masks (black tea instant perfecting mask and rose face masks, specifically) are my holy grails for getting rid of winter lizzard skin. The Fresh Masks for Miles set is the ULTIMATE skincare gift. Featuring four different Fresh face masks and a scrub, it’s great for giving as a unit to the skincare obsessed or splitting up into skincare gift bags. The Mindful Masking Set (pictured above) is a more economical option, with my two favourites as well as the Lotus Youth Preserve Face Mask.

Best Value Beauty Gift Sets for Christmas 2018: Makeup and Palettes

This season, I have fallen completely in love with Laura Mercier’s holiday gift set offerings. The Laura Mercier Nights Out eyeshadow palette comes packaged in a luxurious golden case, and the shades are very unique. While I tend to stick to the left side of the palette, the deep emeralds and sapphire jewel tones are perfect for Holiday makeup looks or New Year’s Eve. At $69, it’s a beautiful luxury palette.

If you’re shopping for a novice makeup lover, the Laura Mercier Shadows & Brights Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection, is an amazing value for $50. I use this set for easy, 30 second eye-makeup look, using only my fingers! These minis are also great for travel.

The Pret-A-Powder Limited Edition Powder & Puff from Laura Mercier is also a lovely item to gift. With limited edition packaging, it offers a rich, golden glow and is great for darker shades. I’m giving away this product as well!

I’ve also become obsessed with the Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick, that came as a duo in the Velour A Deux Lip Duo Rose. This universally-flattering deep rose adds a moisturizing, matte finish to lips. I’ve added this lipstick to my top 10 favourites of all time!

In the luxury category, a Eye Colour Quad palette or Refining Pressed Powder from Clé de Peau Beauté’s Holiday line, Féeries d’Hiver is a lovely gift.

Another must-have palette this season is Urban Decay’s Born to Run palette. This eyeshadow palette has a ton of matte and metallic shades in a wide variety of colours.

Lastly, the Quo line from Shoppers Drug Mart has dozens of amazing beauty gifts. From makeup brushes to makeup sponge advent calendars, I love how this line is accessible, and you can shop late! The All About Eyes Kit has so many shadows and matching liners, while the Lip Gloss Trio and Lip Gloss Ornament make for the perfect stocking stuffer! I love picking up a couple extra items and keeping them on hand for last-minute gifts.
