If you've ever fallen down the skincare YouTube rabbit hole, you're one of them. (Perhaps you saw one of our Go to Bed with Me videos while down there?) If you know your AHAs from your BHAs, you're one of them. If the names Hyram and Susan matter more to you than Brad and Angelina, you're one of them. We're talking about skincare obsessives—those devoted to the art, science, and luxury of a perfected skin care routine. The 21 gifts below are catered to those of us—or that one friend or relative—who would rather throw cash at bottles of serum than bottles of champagne. Skincare stans can be hard to shop for, but the sets below are so good they should come without a receipt. Ahead, the best skincare gift sets for the 2021 holiday season.
