Money well spent: Gift sets offer variety and value

When it comes to gift giving, we all know that festive gift sets are every beauty lover’s dream. All the better if they include a great scented item!

Gifts sets are perfect for holiday gifting. They usually come already-packaged in festive wrapping, they include a variety of products and you usually get more bang for your buck. Check out our beauty gift set recommendations this year—each includes a great fragrance item to satiate our scent-loving sensibilities.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Rollerball Trio


Marc Jacobs has a cult following when it comes to the brand’s Daisy fragrance franchise. Not sure which one you should gift? Try all three—Daisy, Daisy Dream and Daisy Eau So Fresh—in the great (and travel friendly) rollerball packaging. Marc Jacobs Daisy Rollerball Trio, $59,

Too Faced The Chocolate Shop Gift Set


While there may not be any actual perfume in this gift set, the product does smell like cocoa. Too Faced infuses cocoa powder into its products—so the eyeshadow, blush and bronzer included in this set smells like chocolate! Too Faced The Chocolate Shop, $72 ($327 value),
