Is anyone else finding Christmas shopping really overwhelming? I feel like there are so many different gift ideas out there, and everytime I go online and try to make a start, I end up forgetting what I was looking for in the first place. Plus, my family and friends haven’t asked for a single thing this year, so I’ve been left to my own devices to try and figure out what to get them. Instead of overcomplicating things and trying to look for something totally unique, I’ve decided to go back to the one gift that I can always rely on as a beauty editor. That’s right, I’m talking about a perfume gift set. I feel like these clever sets are often overlooked during the festive season, but they are actually a great way of trying out a new perfume and getting your hands on some extra goodies too. Plus, I’ve never seen anyone look disappointed after receiving one of these gifts. Don’t get me wrong, Christmas is definitely not about what presents you open, but if you are struggling to buy for someone and you want to treat them to something special, I believe that a perfume is a great way to go.
As mentioned above, I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t want to receive a perfume gift set. Not only do most of these sets come with a full-size version of your favourite perfume, but they often come with handy travel sizes that are great for throwing in your handbag or matching body creams and shower gels to help make your fragrance last all day long. Not only that, but they come packaged in beautiful boxes, which makes it look like you made a lot more effort than you actually did. So, what are you waiting for? Keep on scrolling to see the 14 best, beauty-editor approved perfume gift sets to shop this Christmas…
There’s nothing I love more than a Jo Malone box waiting for me under the tree. This gorgeous gift set contains my favourite perfume from the brand, English Pear and Freesia, alongside a body and hand wash and a travel-sized candle.
Le Labo’s Santal 33 is such a popular scent, and for good reason. Treat someone to this stylish set which comes with a shower gel and body lotion to layer your fragrance.

If you’re yet to smell Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s famous Baccarat Rouge 540, then you’re seriously missing out. It’s sweet, it’s musky and it’s perfect for this time of year. Why not opt for this gift set which contains a mini hair mist, body oil and sparkling body oil?
First of all, how stunning is this gift? Tom Ford’s signature packaging is enough to get me excited, but the fact that it comes with a 50ml perfume and a 10ml travel spray has just sealed the deal.

Another gorgeous, floral option is My Way by Giorgio Armani. Treat a special someone to this gift set which comes with the pretty perfume and a travel-sized bottle that’s perfect for trips away.
I always recommend Angel’s Share by Kilian Paris to anyone who is looking for a more festive scent.

Plus, the addition of the embossed travel-sized atomiser would make any perfume lover very happy.
Worth £110, this Prada gift set contains the iconic Paradoxe perfume and a matching travel spray. I happen to think that this box would look great sitting under the tree…
