Ah, the holidays: snow on the ground, Christmas lights in the trees, and hundreds of value gift sets at Sephora.

I'm a notorious sucker for holiday gift sets and have been known to hoard them for myself every December. You just can't beat the value of some of these sets! They're a great opportunity to try out a few products from a brand you've been interested in, and they make excellent gifts for the ladies (and gents!) in your lives. 

In addition to gift sets, I've added a few fan-favorites and limited edition products to this list which I think would make great gifts.

If you're looking to buy a beauty gift for your friends and loved ones, check out my curated list.
