Beauty and Personal Care Gift Sets - UK - August 2016

“Beauty sets remain a popular gift choice, particularly at Christmas, with high levels of festive spending keeping the market afloat. Beauty-conscious young women are most likely to ask for sets as gifts, or buy for themselves to save money on individual products. However, older consumers are less likely to buy or receive BPC gift sets, presenting a future challenge for the market as the population ages.”
– Charlotte Libby, Senior Beauty Analyst
