The lip balms over at Fresh are cult-faves for a reason. So, why not treat your pal to a six-piece set of the top sellers in mini form? Perf for on-the-go or travel, these balms are ultra-hydrating and even a few are formulated with SPF. Plus, save the red Sugar Icon one for a night out as its bold red shade is super pigmented as well as rich and smooth. The set comes in a gorgeous red tin that can be reused, too!

Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Holiday Set

It’s no secret that winter is a tough season. It’s cold AF, the sun barely shines, and the icy wind isn’t very nice to our skin and hair. However, this holiday set from Alterna Haircare is here to help you. The cleansing and replenishing shampoo and conditioner help to restore moisture and protect your tresses. Plus, the set comes with the brand’s famous CC Cream for added smoothness and manageability.

Jo Malone Travel Size Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne Set

Fragrance is always a super popular gifting option for the holidays, but if there’s any brand you choose, a top pick is always Jo Malone. The iconic London brand is known for its complex scents that are just a cut above other ones out there. This set is further proof, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg either as its a little over 50 bucks. The mini candle, cologne, and body cream are everything your giftee needs to indulge in some heavenly TLC enveloped in the brand’s gorgeous scents.
