12 Christmas Gift Sets So Good, You’ll Want to Buy One For Yourself

The 'Bootique' has something for everyone this Christmas

A massive, jaw-dropping gift set for everyone on your gift list.

Receiving gifts is always nice and never something to take for granted. But sometimes, when you've opened your third present packed with shower gel and matching body cream and watched your brother open his fifth set of Lynx Africa, things can start to get boring.

Now, we're not blaming anyone, buying gifts is hard – like doing long division hard.  Add that onto the fact that most stores are yet to realise that people want more from their gift sets. But the one store bringing the excitement back into Christmas gifts is none other than Boots. 

In the past year, the store has introduced a staggering 35 new beauty brands to its shelves. Along with the newbies — including Too Faced, Urban Decay, and Fenty Beauty — comes brand-spanking-new gift sets, 1102 to be exact.

Christmas research conducted for Boots found that this year, people want to focus on the most special people in their lives by buying fewer but better gifts. But the more thoughtful a gift has to be, the more stressful Christmas can become. The research also found that more than a third of us are worried about choosing the right gift.

To help solve this problem, Boots is launching hundreds of individual ‘Bootiques’: gift edits curated around the countless personalities that make up the fantastic people that we love. Using its unique database, Boots has built a Bootique for everyone. Whether it's the 'hard to impress mother-in-law', the friend who has everything or you, the person who really deserves to treat themselves, Boots has done the hard work for you. Bootiques will appear online and in Boots stores to take the stress out of Christmas. 

There will even be a ‘Build Your Own Bootique’ online tool to share with friends and family. So, to get things started, we decided to build our very own Bootique.  Keep scrolling to see which gift sets friends and family (not forgetting yourself) would be absolutely delighted to tear open.
