Oh, decisions, decisions. From the skin care fanatic friend to the #makeupoftheday selfie aficionado, there seems to be a plethora of beauty gifts for everyone. Even better, these gift sets cost less than the actual value of the individual products, so you may well just want to get one (or two) for yourself.

I don’t need this, said no one ever about the brand’s (dare we say it?) iconic lip tints. With SPF 15, lip nourishing botanical oils, and in the sheerest, prettiest shades, these eight lip tints (and one lip treatment) are hydrate without that sticky, waxy feel and are stashable in every bag your lucky friend owns. $77 (valued at $109), fresh.com
