The holiday season is upon us: This is not a drill! It's time to bust out your favorite cozy sweaters, sip on pumpkin-spiced-everything and start planning all the wonderful parties, baked goods and gifts you'll undoubtedly will be bestowing upon all the rad people in your life. One of our favorite (and easiest) things to give to others - and let's admit it, ourselves - is the rad makeup gift kit. Every year, there's just something magical about seeing what's new. We've rounded up a few of the best new sets that you'll want to snag before they're gone. Happy shopping!

Kisses From Almay

Nonie Creme Colour Prevails Social Butterfly Holiday Water Colour Eye Shadow PaletteNonie Creme Colour Prevails Watercolour Wet/Dry Eye Shadow Palette Social ButterflyWe LOVE the way this Colour Prevails Social Butterfly Holiday Water Colour Eye Shadow Palette looks on the outside (shiny wings! oh my!), but it also features all the shades you need to transition from day to night on the inside ($19, Walgreens).

First Aid Beauty Peace, Joy & FAB Holiday Kit

First Aid Beauty Peace, Joy & FAB Holiday KitThis is one of our all-time favorite products to indulge in at Sephora, and the beauty goddesses just dropped this holiday kit making us sincerely question the morality of wrapping it up and gifting ourselves. It has all of the top-selling FAB products in one box. One shiny, pretty box. So shiny ($54, Sephora).

Paul Mitchell Give Beautifully

Paul Mitchell GIVE BEAUTIFULLY Holiday 2015 Gift SetsWhat's better than giving the gift of amazing hair? Paul Mitchell upped the game when it put these sets in cute gift boxes and labeled them for your friends who are Bold, Beautiful, Polished and Classic, to name a few. And from $22-$40, these won't break the bank, either. (Find locations near you at Paul Mitchell.)

Red Carpet Manicure Holiday Kit

Red Carpet Manicure Holiday Kit
This is the gift that keeps on giving, because not only can you give this set to your bestie, we're thinking it's a good excuse to plan some at-home spa sessions. This new Red Carpet set contains everything you need for a professional salon gel manicure at home. A nice touch: the USB-powered LED light is dipped in gold. Isn't that festive? We think so ($85, Ulta).

Bvlgari Omnia Mini Variety

Bvlgari Omnia Mini Variety (unisex) holiday kitWhat is it about tiny bottles of perfume that's just so...satisfying? Maybe it's just us or our fantastic sense of whimsy, but we think they're fun to decorate with, travel with and wear. This new Bvlgari set in particular makes a rad gift because not only is it affordable, but it's unisex - anyone can rock these scents ($45, FragranceNet).

Merle Norman the Eyes Have It
