With all the excitement and glitz and glamour, the holidays can be pretty rough. Tough on our waistlines, hard on our moods, and really brutal on our wallets.
On a budget but need to buy gifts for friends and loved ones? Invest in some gift sets you can split up. One of the best things about holiday shopping (aside from the deals), are all the sets that the brands release. There are so many great gifts out there that let you fully experience the brand. Because of that, instead of gifting one gift, portion it up to give yourself a run for your money.
Too Faced Naughty Kisses & Sweet Cheeks Set
I talked about this one before in my Too Faced holiday round up and I love it because Too Faced individually packages these sets so no one will ever know you bought one set to begin with.
The Naughty Kisses & Sweet Cheeks set (C$45) contains three duos of the deluxe-size Lip Injection Ultimate Lip Plumper and two Lip Injection Glossy lip glosses, as well as three coordinating mini sizes of their Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blushes. They come housed in a small box with a To, From on the back.
Sephora Collection The Mini Kisses Lip Balm Trio
This trio from Sephora would be an awesome stocking stuffer, but it’s also a great finishing gift. You know when you buy someone something but you need just something small to toss in their bag to finish their gift? This is it.
Currently unavailable on Sephora’s site (check your local store!), this set contains three mini Kiss Me balms in Charming, Pink Bubblegum, and Cotton Candy.
Atelier Cologne Nécessaire Curated by Sylvie Ganter & Christopher Cervasel
Have a fragrance-loving friend? Although this set is perfect to gift on its own, you can also split up this six-fragrance set.
This Atelier Cologne set, C$95 at Sephora, contains the brand founders’ favourite scents from the line, including Sud Magnolia, Pomelo Paradis, Orange Sanguine, In Vanille Incense, Bois Blonds and Cadre Atlas. Each vial contains 4.14 ml of product, which are spray on (no rollerballs here!) and let me tell you, these smell amazing.
Sephora Collection The Surprising Four-Palette Set
Lastly, this Sephora Collection set looks like one palette at first glance, but it’s actually four palettes once you open the package.
This set includes two palettes for eyes (warm and cool) and two for complexion (a contour and highlight palette and blush and luminizer palette). Have a friend that needs more eyeshadows for her makeup or travel bag? Check. How about one who doesn’t have a control kit? Check.
This guy is also currently unavailable on Sephora’s site, but check your local store. They also have tons of other palettes that are affordable as well.
Just because other things may take priority this holiday season, there are tons of options out there to not break the bank on gifts.
Let me know what your favourite splittable gifts are!
