7 Gift Sets to Buy Yourself Before You Have to Start Shopping for Everyone Else

Just like that, it's holiday gifting season. We know; it feels like just yesterday we were collecting summer skincare tips, and even shorter of a blip ago that we were sourcing Halloween makeup inspiration. Sheesh, time flies. But no matter the season, it's always a good time to snag a little something for the most important person on your holiday gifting list: you.

With all the gift giving that's about to go down, it might feel just a touch frivolous to spend any of that precious holiday budget on yourself. But you know what? You deserve it. And thankfully, we found some super-affordable beauty gift sets that are chock-full of little presents you'll actually want, and you'll also be able to put everything to good use throughout the holiday travel season and beyond. Just consider it #selfcare.

Ahead, check out the seven affordable beauty gift sets to grab for yourself before you shift your focus to everyone else.

If you want to spend $10 or less…

This one's for all the fans of the cult-favorite Weleda Skin Food. Now's your chance to come up on a travel-size version to accompany you to even the coldest of winter climates. Additionally, you'll get a tube of the luxurious lip salve, so you'll have quenched skin from head to toe. Ringing in at just under $10, this is probably the most guilt-free purchase you'll make for the rest of the year.

If you want to spend $20 or less…

This set is an absolute must. It features mini versions of Versed's beloved Stroke of Brilliance Brightening Serum and On the Rise Firming Serum, but the kicker is the facial roller tool. Similar tools retail for upward of $180 alone (yes, really), so this is a steal of a deal.

If you want to spend $30 or less…

This kit contains everything you need to create showstopping brows no matter where you are. It comes with a full-size Brow Wiz pencil, along with mini versions of the tinted Dipbrow Gel and Clear Brow Gel. Honestly, this set could replace all the brow products currently packed in your travel case.

If you want to spend $40 or less…

Two of the buzziest Los Angeles–based clean beauty brands have joined forces to create a gift set fit for a fashion girl. It contains Nécessaire's heavenly unscented body lotion and Kosasport LipFuel, a beloved balm containing hyaluronic acid. You need this.

Clean, organic body wash can officially come with you wherever you're headed this winter, with this killer set from cult-favorite bath-time brand Plant Apothecary. Whether you're looking to zen out in your shower at home or create a moment of peace on the go, this set will get you there.

If you want to spend $50 or less…

Your lips deserve a glossy upgrade this holiday season, and this collection of Gloss Bombs from Rihanna's Fenty Beauty is just the ticket. You'll get five minis of each shade in the range—and loads of compliments.

Exfoliate and moisturize that dry winter skin with this set's offering of ethically sourced shea butter, coconut oil, and essential oil–packed products. It's got self-love in the name, so who better to give it to than yourself?
