Upping your stocking stuffer game this season doesn't mean you have to spend a ton of money. There are plenty of low-cost gifts that'll still make a big impact when they're unwrapped by loved ones. A good place to start your search for these small but special presents is in the beauty department. This year you'll be able to find a wide offering of beauty gift sets under $10 from an assortment of brands sold retailers you probably already frequent, making it easy to just throw these in your cart the next time you're browsing the internet.
The range of products available will allow you to easily find a present for everyone on your list, from your best friend and your sister to your mom (and more leading ladies in your life). The lower sticker prices mean you can stock up on a variety of items, so you'll have options when it comes time to start divvying out the gifts.
Where to start? Since the amount of options can be overwhelming, first begin by narrowing in on who you are buying for; then, think about their lifestyle and personal aesthetic. Case in point: For the friend who always seems to be heading to the airport, snag the Formula 10.0.6 Calm Retreat Travel Kit available at Ulta for $9.99. This handy kit isn't only practical, but its stylish packaging makes for a chic Christmas gift that looks more expensive than its price tag reflects. Plus, it contains four products — a hydrating sheet mask, make-up removing wipes, a peel mask, and a moisturizer — all in airplane-friendly sizes.
Other loved ones may have specific items that are consistently in their bag. If you always see your mom pulling out her eos lip balm, then add a trio of essentials from the brand for $7.99 to your cart. Not only will you be providing her with a fresh balm, but she's sure to appreciate the body and hand lotions in a vanilla, floral scent too.
There's always at least one friend in the group known for having dry shampoo within an arms reach. Help refill her supply with Target's Beauty Box Dry Shampoo Set for $8.99. Five travel size dry shampoos from Love Beauty & Planet, Batiste, OGX, Not Your Mother's, and Dove are sure to be enjoyed by your hair-loving bestie (and possibly you as well).
If you're feeling like you need a couple extra items for last-minute presents, go for products that'll help combat the winter weather. Your friends will be grateful to receive the TONYMOLY My Shea Sheet Mask set come the new year when January temperatures set in and they're recouping from holiday parties. No need to wrap this set of five ultra-soothing sheet masks, as they already come in festive holiday-ready packaging for $8.
