It just isn't practical for me to arrange childcare and travel to treat my skin right, when I

You can give a beauty gift that is a little more "one size fits most". They can also give you the opportunity to introduce someone who isn't very knowledgable about skincare, or who isn't very experimental, to some great new products. Finally, what I think is the main reason skincare gift sets are so
