The big day really isn’t that far off, so get ahead of the shopping game by snapping up one (or many) of these incredible Christmas beauty gifts.

You might still be revelling in the throes of autumn, with its influx of gripping TV dramas and pumpkin-hued eyeshadow palettes, but take it from us: now’s the time to look ahead and start ticking off the bulk of your Christmas shopping.

Why? Because the bulk of this year’s Christmas beauty gift sets have already landed in-store and online. And as you’ll know from years of scrambling for last-minute gifts on Christmas Eve (just us?), the best ones really don’t stay in stock for long.

The problem is knowing how to decipher which gift sets are actually worth every penny and which ones will simply sit gathering dust at the back of a cupboard for months to come. As well as considering the cost-to-value ratio (gift sets often offer a huge saving), it’s important to consider the recipient. Make-up, skincare and haircare choices can be quite personal, so look for sets that feature seriously indulgent, genuinely useful beauty heroes they’re sure to love.

Below, we’ve rounded up the best Christmas beauty gift sets for 2021 to shop now – but don’t forget to check out our list of the greatest beauty advent calendars while you’re at it.
