The Best Clean Beauty Gift Sets for Christmas 2021

Our selection of the best clean beauty gift sets for Christmas is perfect for everyone on your list!

By Chiara Spagnoli Gabardi

Gift giving can be tough. It seems that sometimes, no matter how hard we try, it’s really hard to buy the perfect gift. So – how can we get it right?

First of all, and most obviously, give what you think the recipient would like to receive – something that smells nice, feels good, or is useful.

Secondly, don’t go too crazy on the fanciness. Giving a skin cream is one thing; giving a gift certificate for a five star salon that’s on the other side of town and only has availability Monday mornings until 1.30 becomes a chore for the recipient.

Finally, don’t be afraid to repeat gift themes! If you’ve got a circle of five friends to buy for, it’s fine to get them all luxurious scarves, movie tickets, or beauty products.

Clean Beauty Gift Sets for Christmas (or any other occasion) are, in my experience, always a winner. They tick a lot of boxes: they’re useful, aromatic, are perfect for people of all ages and genders, and are beautifully packaged, too.

Here, I’ve tried to make your Christmas shopping that little bit easier by suggesting some such indulgent clean beauty gift sets that anyone -including you- would be happy to receive.

  1. Just a good one especially for its versatility, can be for man or woman, young or old (so great secret Santa or grab bag gift!) is a travel set or gift set from Yu-Be Skin Care. I’ve found their line to be much more effective than something the more frou-frou products so the fact they make sets is great around the holidays.
