The Ultimate Guide to Christmas Beauty Gift Sets

Tis the season! …to start stressing about Christmas gifts. Her Campus brings you the ultimate festive guide for buying makeup and beauty gift sets that any girl would love to unwrap under the Christmas tree – from great stocking fillers to the ultimate Christmas splurges.

Disclaimer:  This is essentially just as much a Christmas gift guide as a list of ‘boxes of pretty things we’ve been drooling over since October’…

 

Stocking Fillers – Under £15

Soap & Glory Your Own Sweet Lime £10.00 from Boots

You can’t go wrong with any Soap & Glory products, for the smell alone! Bath products are the perfect safe option if you don’t know someone very well or are generally stuck for ideas!

 

Topshop Lip and Cream Blush Set – £12

Topshop makeup, rumoured to be developed by MAC, is slowly becoming a fierce contender in the makeup world. This duo gift set comes in two shades but our favourite is Lips in Wicked and Cream Blush in Head Over Heels.

 

Eyelure New York Lash Wardrobe – £12 from Topshop

Yes – a false eyelash WARDROBE for all your eyelash coordinating needs. (Also 95p cheaper if bought from Topshop rather than Boots).

 

Vanilla Brulee Tube of Treasures – £15 from The Body Shop

The Body Shop’s new scent for Christmas is what dreams are made of – if your dreams include coating yourself in vanilla custard. So naturally many dreams will be crushed if they decide to discontinue it after Christmas…

 

Solid Buys – Gift Sets for £30 and under

EOS Assorted Lip Balms Pack of 3 – £19.50 at Selfridges

Great gift for someone who’s been dying to try the biggest craze to hit lip hydration since lip smackers…

 

Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Box o’ Blushes Set – £29.50 from Boots

Christmas is the perfect time to try out luxury makeup products that you’d normally feel bad about splashing out for. Benefit’s gift sets are always great value for money but we couldn’t actually believe our eyes when I saw this gift set with all of their bestselling blushers, Hoola Bronzer and Watts Up Highlighter all in one place! Benefit know how to treat ‘em.

 

Champney’s Distant Shores Body Conditioning Kit – £30 from Boots

There’s been a real theme of amazing smells in this article… but Champney’s really do deserve a life time achievement award for their Distant Shores scent. This skincare set is the ultimate luxury spa experience in your home for someone who deserves to be pampered this Christmas. 

 

Sleek MakeUp Party Box Gift Set – £30 from Superdrug

All of the brands best products in a box – a perfect introduction to another rising star in makeup!

 

One can dream… Gift sets over any student’s budgets

Nars The Vault – £330 at Selfridges

Give the gift of a lifetime of perfect lips and nails this Christmas…

 

Charlotte Tilbury Gift Boxes – £145 -£165 from Selfridges

Gorgeous makeup in gorgeous packaging from the world’s most sought-after makeup artist. The Vintage Vamp set is our favourite for the festive season.

 

Urban Decay’s Exclusive Naked Vault – £180 from Selfridges

The only item on our list that is so coveted it sold out before it even officially went on sale. The beauty junkie’s dream gift containing all three full-sized Naked and Flushed palettes, three glosses and three double ended eye kohls. 

I'm a second year English Language and Literature student at the University of Nottingham who is worryingly obsessed with organising and could spend an entire day in Boots comparing makeup and beauty products. Aside from this... I love a good night out, green tea, dogs, artsy fartsy films, cooking and being overly competitive in board games.
