    Is Chanel doing away with Holiday Gift sets this year?

    I am newish to Chanel, and remember seeing in past years, they had really nice Holiday gift sets. This was not only fragrances, but with makeup also.
    I have not seen any this year, and was told by a few SA's that Chanel is not doing sets this year, and will not be doing them in the future!? Is this true???

    Has anyone seen any sets this year? Have you heard anything??

    Oh these look nice!

    I have called the Bay, Holts and Macy's...and all ahve said that Chanel is doing away with gift sets, especially the makeup product ones.
    i was also told fragrance sets are diminishing....only Coco mademoiselle and Chance this year??? No more Chanel N05 sets???

    There are some Chanel Holiday sets available at Nordstrom, a brush set and a couple of lip/nail sets:

    I love the lip bags! I'm sad I already have Spark and Wild Rose, because I want another one of the sets that come with the lipliner and sharpener. Love the adorable white bag

    I was told that there are 3 holiday makeup bags this year. Two lip sets (I think that a np is in one of them) and a pricey brush set. I was hoping for an eye set, but there isn't any this year.

    Plus they have a couple of fragrance sets.

    Sorry didn't see the earlier post from MzzRach!

    i just got my first chanel lip bag! i was afraid they weren't going to have holiday sets either but i was able to order it from nordstrom's as they didn't have them in store. I got the one with plasir and amour glossimers and the nail color. love the chicness of the white bag! i am trying to figure out what i can use it for so i won't ruin it with make up stains

    I will ask at neiman's if they will ship international - I have posted SA's info over on TPF forum, I worked out a special VIP deal with goodies and so forth for TPF peeps, the C counter is the most generous goodies givers ever! I will ask next time I pop in if they can do international ship from store!

    I asked and they said they can not ship nail polish or parfume international - they can only do make up from the store - I know on chanel.com they will only do ground shipping in US on polish - I asked them to hold one for you as they said it will be limited just in case we can figure out a way - there are a bunch of chanel girls on Instagram who always ship things, let me ask how they do it and see if I can help!! i wonder if customs is a problem too - also, try asking in C nail forum on TPF, my PM's are full over there but I will clean them up soon or post back here!!
