In the past, I’ve agonized until the very last second to find the most creative and unique Christmas gift ideas for my friends and family. I’d shop for days on end and stay up all night long on Christmas Eve to make sure each and every gift was wrapped and ready. This year, I just don’t have the time or energy for that kind of thing, so I’m switching gears. I’m sticking to the basics and gifting my all-time favorite products. I spend most of my days testing out new products, so why wouldn’t I want to share the best of the best with my loved ones? Today I’m sharing two of my favorite gift sets for the holidays. They feature some of my favorite products, and they’re both under $15 at Walmart!
You guys know that the Dove dry shampoo is one of my beauty must-haves. I use it to create all of my second-day hairstyles, and it’s perfect for touching up your roots after a long day of travel. I just recently ran to Walmart to re-stock my shampoo, and I noticed this Dove Hair Dry Shampoo Bonus Holiday Gift Pack on the aisle end-cap. This holiday gift set includes three of the best products Dove’s hair care range: the Dove Intensive Care shampoo and conditioner and the Refresh + Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo. When I saw this trio of products, I automatically placed one of the sets in my cart for myself, but then I started thinking about just how perfect it would be as an affordable holiday gift idea. Getting three full-size products for less than $10 is hard to beat!
I’ve used several bottles of the Dove Intensive Care shampoo and conditioner over the years, and I’ve always been a fan of the moisturizing formula and the heavenly clean scent. And of course, I’m totally in love with the dry shampoo. My family and friends are always asking me about my favorite beauty products, and this affordable holiday gift set allows me to share three of my favorite products for under $10. This trio comes conveniently wrapped, so it’s easy to fit inside a gift bag or pop into a Christmas stocking.
If you’re not into gift sets, or you’re hoping to create custom gifts for each member of your family, this gift set is a still a fabulous option. When you buy these products as a set, you’re paying less per product than you normally would. It’s a great idea to buy the set to get the savings, and then split up the different products as you’d like. While I’m gifting several of the Dove Hair Dry Shampoo Bonus Holiday Gift Pack as a set, I have one friend in mind who is specifically crazy about dry shampoo. I popped the dry shampoo out of my kit (since I already have two back-ups) and added a few extra baubles to create a gift that’s 100% her. You could also split up the trio to make three individual stocking stuffers for friends and family. Either way, the value of the kit is ah-mazing!
While the Dove kit is honestly a unisex gift, I thought it was only fair to share a gift idea for the men in your life as well. Men are notoriously hard to shop for, but honestly, the AXE Dark Temptation Holiday Gift Pack will please any guy on your Christmas shopping list. While I was at Walmart, I picked up this gift set for my brother. I headed home to photograph the set and before I could snap even one picture, my husband started eyeing the products. He attempted to steal the body wash and the trendy dopp bag, but I thankfully grabbed them out of his hands before he got away. Long story short, I’m going to need to buy a few more of these kits before Christmas, because I can already tell that everyone’s going to be jealous of this kit.
So why is the AXE Dark Temptation Holiday Gift Pack the perfect Christmas gift idea for men? First of all, most men hate shopping for bath products even though they use them on a daily basis. This gift set allows them to skip the shopping trip and still smell fresh. Secondly, you can buy them four full-size products and a cool dopp bag to hold all of their products for less than $15. If you bought each of these items individually, you’d be shelling out quite a bit more cash. And finally, the Axe Dark Temptation scent smells really good. It includes hot chocolate, amber, and red peppercorn notes, and the sweet and spicy scent is delightfully manly (in a good way).
And honestly…my husband never notices any of the products in the house. I have bins and boxes and bags galore of beauty products, and he literally never notices any of the products; however, he briefly strolled by this kit and wanted it for himself. To me, that speaks volumes. This kit is made for men, and it’s gonna make your holiday shopping for the men in your life quick, easy, and affordable!
This Christmas, give the gift of style to anyone on your list with the Unilever Holiday Gift Packs available at Walmart. They’re more personal than a generic gift card, but they’re just as quick and easy. With multiple sets available, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list- including the last-minute additions. Today I shared my favorite from Dove and Axe, but be sure to head to Walmart to see all of the best holiday gift sets!
