When you have no idea what to get your mom, your sister-in-law, your teenage brother or your Work Wife, skincare is always a good idea. With the best skincare gifts of 2021, you’re giving the gift of self-care. You’re telling someone it’s OK to take a few extra minutes in the morning and at night for themselves. And, you’re helping them find or keep using products that help them feel beautiful. Is there any better gift than that?
Now, we know that skincare can get expensive, so here’s a hack we like to use when we’re getting out besties present: Opting for the sets. These come from the same extremely loved brands, and often include best-selling products, but somehow cost less than the combined items would normally. It’s the best bang for your buck, and these goodie bags usually come in chic packaging that takes away the need for any wrapping. It’s a win for everyone involved.
There are a bunch of skincare sets out there, so we looked far and wide for the ones that have the best deals and the best products. These come from brands that celebrities love (ahem, Tatcha), as well as the companies that everyone on TikTok has praised (ahem, Dr. Jart+). Most of the prices fall under the $30-$50 range, but we also included a few high-end staples for those with luxe taste.
Below, check out 11 top-rated and money-saving skincare gift sets that you’ll feel good buying.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm Trio
Cleansing balms are the less-harsh, more sustainable alternative. They gently remove sticky makeup from your skin without stripping it of its natural oils. How’s this done? With the help of skin-soothing (non-clogging) oils like rose oleo extract. These oils wipe away makeup upon contact, but Elemis’s products have an added bonus: they contain skin-lifting collagen. Your skin will get a cleanse as well as a lift with any of these balms. Together, they retail for $96, but you’ll save $26 with this trio.

It includes the creamy Rose Glow & Get It balm that shoppers swear makes them look years younger, as well as a brightening serum ideal for rough mornings, and a neutralizing product that plumps skin and evens tone. All together, the trio is valued at $90, but you can save $30 with this set.
