The 9 Best Bath & Body Works Gift Sets This Holiday Season

With its large variety of bathroom staple products and ever-changing seasonal scenes, Bath & Body Works is one of our favorite stops when we want to indulge. And, with the holidays just around the corner, the brand also comes in clutch for finding the perfect gifts. According to a survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Spinbrush (via SWNS Digital), 81% of American adults prefer receiving gifts they can use throughout the year, and 33% expect to receive self-care items every holiday season. Bath & Body Works offers both: products we actually need to stay clean (its soaps and hand sanitizers are lifesavers), as well as feel-good fragrances that fit perfectly into me-time moments (lotions and body mists? Yes please).


To make holiday shopping even easier, Bath & Body Works offers a range of gift sets already curated and finished off with festive packaging — the hardest part is choosing from the wide variety of options. To simplify things (because the holiday season is already hectic enough), we chose the nine best gift sets for everyone on your list. All you have to do is hit "Add to bag."

How we selected products

If you've ever walked into a Bath & Body Works store, you know the brand has an overwhelming number of products and fragrance lines to choose from. To narrow down the best gift sets, we first eliminated any options that don't fit the holiday vibes — bye-bye, birthday Bath Fizzies set. We then scoured the Bath & Body Works website for top-rated products based on customer reviews and ranked gift sets that include these crowd-pleasing favorites.


With the OnePoll/Spinbrush survey in mind, we then made sure to include practical products that can be easily incorporated into anyone's self-care routine, no matter how basic or elaborate it might be. You'll find gift sets containing 3-in-1 shower gels, spa-like aromatherapy items, and beauty products. We also made sure to include sets that would appeal to a variety of recipients, from your long-time bestie to your dad. Finally, we considered price, making sure to include sets that fit any budget. At the lower end, you'll find a set priced at $9.95, and if you're looking to splurge, the most expensive sets on the list will run you back $49.95.
