In the next days or so, I will hunt for the best holiday gift sets pegged at a certain amount. For this post, we are looking at $25 or less sets that are sold in department stores or exclusive beauty retail shops. These are definitely eye candies! They are ideal as stocking stuffers or exchange gifts- something a makeup junkie would like to have…

….Why I like sets (1) I can give them as is  (2) I can split the inclusions, then mix and match with the other sets (i.e. lip glaze + eye shadow + nail polish = one elated recipient!)

By the way, let me share with you the worst company exchange gift I received: a freebie FHM magazine + calendar  (It’s not kris kringle). Employees were asked to bring at least $5 worth of random gift. Imagine my reaction when I tore the wrapper! Oh well, I gave it to a guy officemate. What the hell will I do with a men’s magazine? 

And before I forget, head to Starbucks USA (I’m not sure with other countries) between Nov 17- 20, 2011,  2-5 pm!  It’s Buy One Get One Free for its Holiday Drink.
