The Ultimate Beauty Gift Guide For Every Budget

The Ultimate Beauty Gift Guide For Every Budget
Finding the best beauty gift sets for your friends and family that work with your budget can be tricky. There’s a lot of choice out there, almost too much, and it can be impossible to decide what to buy for who. Fortunately, we’ve waded through this year’s festive offering and selected some of our favourites, including the show-stopping luxury makeup gift sets from the likes of Rare Beauty and Byredo, and the budget-friendly skincare sets from Dr Jart+ and Biossance that look anything but budget.

Whether you’re looking for something specific (this year’s Diptyque candle set, or the must-have makeup gift set perhaps?) or have absolutely no idea, we’ve curated the ultimate gift guide for every budget, from under £30 to over £150…

Best Beauty Gift Sets To Buy In 2022 Under £30


Rare Beauty

Mini Matte Lipstick & Matte Lip Liner Duo, $20.00

The Budget-Friendly Makeup Gift Set
Selena Gomez’s makeup brand, Rare Beauty has been a runaway success since it launched with us in February and this mini duo is the best makeup gift set for under £20 in our opinion. The wearable nude hue and comfortable matte texture make both the lipstick and liner everyday essentials.



Glow Forth, Be Bright Set, $25.00

The Sustainable Skincare Gift Set
If the environment is at the top of their agenda, you’ll impress them with this travel-friendly skincare duo. Biossance puts sugarcane derived squalene at the centre of its formulas to ensure each and every one nourishes and strengthens skin. The Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil and Squalane + Omega Repair Cream are two of the brand’s bestsellers and perfect for keeping complexions balanced in chillier weather. Just in case the recipient asks, all the packaging is recyclable, and the formulas are vegan and cruelty-free.
