Our holiday gifting motto this year? In the spirit of Oprah, “You get a beauty set! You get a beauty set! You get a beauty set!” That’s because they’re easy to wrap, cost-effective and often packed with best-selling or buzzy items that are worth a try. We’re talking product bundles so good—from brands including Dr. Dennis Gross, Briogeo and Olive & June—we fully intend on keeping a few for ourselves. Here, the 12 best holiday beauty sets to shop this year.

1. Kosas The Clean Start Set: Lip Alert
Here’s a gift even your too-cool cousin will appreciate: This trio of Kosas’s most popular lip products.

2. Best Of Dermstore Problem Solution: Hydrating Regimen
Have a skincare junkie on your list? Get her this curated holiday set from Dermstore. It features $241-worth of products from brands like Dr. Dennis Gross, SkinCeuticals and Obagi, for just $75. (Handy travel bag included).
3. Briogeo Scalp Revival Soothing Solutions Value Set
You’ve raved about Briogeo’s scalp massager to your sister too many times to count, so it’s about time you got her one of her own. And while you’re at it, you may as well gift her this set, which also contains the brand’s Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo, Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Scalp Mask, Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment and Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo.
4. Skinceuticals Anti-aging System
This set features SkinCeuticals’s legendary C E Ferulic treatment, which means it's bound to sell out. Just keep in mind that with anti-aging in the name, you might offend your MIL if you stick this skincare bundle in her stocking. Oh well, guess you’ll just have to keep it for yourself…
