Call me particular, or call me my mother’s daughter, but I really love it when things match. Complete sets of things stroke my functioning-adult ego like nothing else, which is precisely why I’m a huge fan of wonderful gift sets for women. Instead of an oversized bag filled with haphazard items one might find at a dollar store – a.k.a. “The Birthday Fun Bag,” and how my friends actually used to exchange gifts back in high school – you can instead give someone a mature and thoughtful set that covers all your bases on gift giving.
While most people tend to think of beauty baskets and makeup palettes when they say the words “gift set” (and don't worry, there are a few of those here, too), an expertly curated gift set can suit any type of woman, whether she’s outdoorsy, athletic, artistic, culinarily inclined, or just loves to relax. The key here is finding something that’s functional, well-rounded, and presented in an aesthetically pleasing form that also serves a purpose. Not sure where to start? Check out these awesome gift sets for any woman. All you need to do is buy it and wrap it, and soon you'll be hearing the words, “Oh, insert-name-here! You’ve entirely outdone yourself with your maturity and understanding of my personality!”
