Gift Guide Part 4: Gift Sets

giftsets.jpgSome of the most unique and fun presents come in groups! Gift sets can seem more personal since they usually represent the interests of the recipient, and they also are great because included are a bunch of little surpises instead of one singular gift. One of my favorite things to do is create my own gift baskets for friends and family, the downside is it can be a time consuming task and the cost can skyrocket without realizing it!  Fortunately, many stores and websites take the hard work off our backs and sell pre-made gift sets featuring as many themes as you can imagine. For foodies, cooks and superstar hostesses on your list, Dean and Deluca is the place to check out! They have an amazing gift inventory for any budget. Some of my picks are the destination baskets such as St. Helena, the Rise and Shine set is perfect for breakfast lovers and the Dean and Deluca’s Best set is a variety of yummy house favorites. Dean and Deluca has spice sets, coffee and tea gifts, cheese plates, chocolate and pastries sets- pretty much any food gift you want you can find here! For a huge selection of bath and body sets, there’s plenty more than what’s available at your local Bath and Body Works.  Philosophy is a fun and inventive company with so many fab gift sets its hard to pick just one!  Whether you’re looking for fruity, floral, bakery, or even mixed drinks scents, Philosphy has them all. Try the Holiday House, Holiday Traincase or the Amazing Grace Set. Philosophy has more than just great bath products, they also have amazing skincare, haircare, makeup and fragrances as well. For makeup sets, it’s pretty simple. As I’ve said many times before, you can’t find more brands, ideas and gifts than at Sephora! As for clothing, Cherry Tees is a must see! They have a few tee samplers that feature their high quality shirts packaged in vintage wooden fruit crates with a gift tag and candy attached.  They also have cute buckets of tanks and tee of the month clubs too! That’s all I have for now but if you all know of any shops or sites that offer exceptional gift sets then let me know!

    I plan on doing variations of this for my mom & sister. Gift certificates to their favorite shops mixed in with items I know they’ll want along with the ever-popular toiletry items from L’Occitane and Body Shop. Can’t fail.

    I love doing things like that too, there’s so many options! I just made one for my parent’s anniv with good wine, cheese, crackers, olives, chocolate and a jazz cd I made from my Itunes, they loved it!
