In case the abundance of Pre-black Friday sales and earlier than usual decorations didn’t make this clear, the holiday season is officially here. Temps are dropping (way quicker than we’d like to admit), Sephora’s website is overflowing with exclusive kits and we’re jotting down wishlists for any and everyone to donate to. And since the holidays aren’t exactly about ourselves, we’re conjuring next-level gifts our loved ones will swoon over too. If you’re looking to gift something a little out-of-the-ordinary, but still super on-trend, we’ve got exactly what you need: this year’s best K-beauty holiday gift sets.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that K-beauty is the reason we’re obsessed with glass skin, cream skin, and any other trend that promises the glow-up of our dreams. And whether you have a friend that is already obsessed with this overseas sensation or clueless about its existence, anything from this category will broaden their horizon. The best gifts are the ones that absolutely blow your mind and force you to ask yourself, “where has this been all my life?!” In short, that’s the kind of reaction you can expect when K-beauty is in the mix.

So of course we rounded up top skincare starter sets, double-cleansing duos and ultra-hydrating masks, but we’ve thrown in a few unexpected makeup options, too. Because we’re doing this all in the name of experimentation, right?

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
