25 Holiday 2016 Gift Sets That Are Perfect For Splitting With Friends — PHOTOS
Whether you're shopping for yourself or a friend, gift sets are always a fun way to go for holiday presents. But something that's even more fun than finding the best set is making one yourself by combining different holiday gift sets that are perfect for splitting with friends. That way, everyone can have a slice of each beauty gift (and you won't even have to choose just one). Plus, if you're the kind of person who can't help but to shop for herself while shopping for her friends (guilty), it's easy, not to mention pretty awesome, to include yourself when making these beauty gift baskets.
So instead of deciding between lipstick and lotion, mix and match different sets to give you and your friends everything you deserve this holiday season. Making your gift bags will be almost as fun as ripping everything open and comparing swatches. The only problem will be choosing which sets to split. So to help you decide, I've rounded up 25 of 2016's best holiday sets that have everything from liquid lipsticks, to highlighters, to bath bombs, to perfume. No matter which ones you choose, you'll totally be spreading the beauty cheer this year.
