Even if you know what piques the interests of your best friend or family member, the best gift can still seem inexplicably elusive. And if you want to go the extra mile and get them more than one thing to unwrap, but aren’t excited about shopping at several different stores, then a gift set might be the best way to go.

Unsurprisingly, the best gift sets are focused on universally pleasing categories like food, drinks, beauty, grooming, and home goods. From musician-backed wines and skincare, to gourmet upgrades for your favorite culinary star-in-the-making, we’ve handpicked some of the coolest gift set ideas for Valentine’s Day and beyond.

1. The Spice Lab Tequila Shot Glasses

Tequila is on the rise in the U.S., which means it may be time to invest in some purpose-built drinkware for the Mexican liquor. These clever tequila shot glasses are made of pink Himalayan salt, eliminating the need to lick salt off your hand before shooting. Using a unique guard insert, the glasses filter in just enough salt without changing the flavor of your tequila. When you’re not partying, the set also works for presenting appetizers or charcuterie thanks to an included serving board.

2. Disco Regimen Set

Men’s grooming brand Disco has had our attention recently with a range of simple, high-quality products. This Regimen Set is essentially their greatest-hits package, complete with everything your loved one needs to cleanse and rejuvenate while combating signs of age. The set includes a repairing eye stick (for those bags), a charcoal cleanser, an exfoliating scrub, a face mask and a moisturizer. If, like many dudes, your giftee still isn’t taking proper care of their skin, this is a great choice.

The set includes all 14 original books, and they’re a great way to better understand the iconic martini-drinker as he was originally penned.
