Last minute present? Gift sets are the way to go

Gift sets often get a bad rap—baskets of stale fruitcake and overly scented body washes might come to mind, but not all gift sets are created equally. There are plenty of reasons why today's improved gift sets should make your gift-giving list. Your boss, your friends and your family will thank you.

They're perfect for your hard-to-shop-for friend

When you don't know what to get someone, variety rules. Whether they're a generalist, book lover or beauty enthusiast, gift sets offer an assortment of items that guarantees they'll find use of one of the set's products, if not all of them.

Gift sets are budget friendly

If you're looking to get more bang for your buck, gift sets are the way to go. The price is a win-win-win—the shopper gets a deal, the receiver gets variety, and the store gets to sell off extra product and discontinued items. Bonus: many sets come with a freebie like a tote bag that you can tack on or keep for yourself. If you're really crafty you can try making one of your own gift baskets filled with things like homemade jams, diy jewelry, monogram mugs, decor, bath bombs and more. Left over stocking stuffers? Use those too.

Don't know your gift-tee very well? Get them a gift set!

Shopping for a boss, a teacher or an acquaintance is difficult—but not impossible. Enter the the gift set. When you're not sure what their interests include, these packages offer an assortment of goodies that cover the basics. You don't even have to narrow your choice to a beauty, fashion, or food set—there are many that contain a little bit of everything.

Shop these beauty gift sets that are packed with goodies and easy on the wallet too.
