Buy One for Friend, Keep One for Yourself Holiday Gift Sets

friend holiday gift ideas

Ok, ok, I admit it I’m a buy one for a friend, buy one for me kinda gift giver! I’m particularly guilty of this when I shop for my sister. Typically I’ll sit down at my computer late Thanksgiving night and I do all my shopping for my sister online in one go. I seem to always get into trouble during this time as there are so many sales and cute items and I end up purchasing gifts not only for her but one for me as well.

So yeah, I have that buy one for her, buy one for me gift mentality.

This can prove a good thing though with so many Holiday Gift Sets on QVC that can be broken down into two gifts or even sometimes three or four! This can save a good deal of money as for $20 to $50 you get three or four gifts out of one item!

So here’s my list of great Buy One for Friend, Keep One for Yourself Holiday Gift Sets!

1. Tarte Deluxe Maracuja Lip Gloss Set $32
It doesn’t get an easier than this gloss set because each of the 15 Tarte Lipglosses are already broken down into three gift boxes that contain five glosses each! So keep one for yourself and gift the other two away to friends or stuff them in stockings! Either way this set gets you one massive set of glosses as a gift or three individual gloss gifts!

2. L’Occitane 9-Piece Bath & Body Collection $87
Gift L’Occitane with these four gift sets that have an array of L’Occitane Bath & Body goodies housed in cute gift boxes!

3. Bare Minerals Love at First Light 3 Palette Collection $79
How cute are these Bare Minerals sets? Each one has two eyeshadows, one blush, lipgloss, and either a highlighter or illuminating mineral veil. They are packaged in three different boxes so you can split them up to create three gifts (oh, well, two, don’t forget to keep one for yourself)!

4. Philosophy Peppermint Stick Shower Duo $25
Two peppermint stick shower gels from Philosophy, one for you, one for a friend, housed in cute gift bags ready for gifting!

5. First Aid Beauty Set of 4 Ultra Repair Cream $36
Give the gift of skincare with this four piece set of Fist Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. Each 4 oz cream is boxed with a tag ready for gifting!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.
