When I was young, bath salts (often in a woven, swan-shaped basket) was the gift du jour for women. I know this because I was on the receiving end of my fair share. As you can imagine, after a while it became increasingly difficult to look surprised and – being more of a shower gal myself – ended up regifting many of them to friends and family who were, no doubt, as excited as I was to receive *yet another* container of them.

Fast forward to 2019: the term ‘bath salts’ has a whole different, drug-related meaning (yikes!), and we have loads more options when it comes to skin- and body care beauty spoils. But instead of giving your loved ones just one specific product, why not get them gift sets? Because one thing that everyone loves is options. Go big or go home, right?

Gift-set gifting

Finding the perfect gift for someone is no easy feat (if you disagree, I’m accepting help!). This is why handing over a solitary item (like bath salts) is such a risk. There is – however – an easy way to significantly reduce said risk and score yourself some serious points with your nearest and dearest.

And they are called gift sets. Beauty ones, in particular, are popular over the festive season, with loads of brands curating boxes of products especially for the holiday season.
