Gift sets are some of my favorite items to give during the holidays because (1) they cut the guessing game in gift-giving (2) they make awesome stocking stuffers (3) you can mix and match and come up with your own customized gift sets. As a receiver, any of these will definitely thrill me to the max!

1. Lisa Hoffman Holiday Serenity Travel Trio ($49). This set features three signature scents which are perfect for the holidays. Japanese Agarwood is woodsy, accented with zesty bergamot, spiced ginger and warm amber. Tuscan Fig is sweet with notes of tuscan fig, vanilla bean, honeysuckle, coconut wood and gardenia. French Clay Sage is refreshing, invigorated with french clay sage, yellow freesia, cotton and linen accords. They are spray-on, subtly-fragrant and purse-friendly.
