You know Christmas is coming for sure, when the stores go all out to entice you with all their prettily-packaged gift sets. “Buy me!” they call out, “It’s great value! You won’t regret it!”

Sure, some of these festive sets and coffrets really do help us make significant savings, since the end of the year is also the time brands get particularly generous with their offerings, as they bundle products together in sets that go at a much lower price than the actual combined value.

So here, we’ve scoured through all the Christmassy offerings and identified the ones that will give you the hugest savings. Remember – amidst all the Christmas shopping madness, shopping smart is of utmost importance.
