Am I the only one who's excited that there are just a few weeks left before Christmas? Besides decorating my house with holiday everything, it's also time to get cracking on this holiday shopping. While we're seeing all kinds of guides around the web, we can't forget about stocking stuffers! They are easy, thoughtful gifts that can light up Christmas morning just as much as anything under the tree. Here are five beauty gifts under $10 that are perfect for your Christmas stockings.
The Makeup Newbie - e.l.f. Beauty Clutch Set ($9 at Target)
All-in-one palettes are the perfect starter sets for the makeup newbie in your family. I'm a particular fan of e.l.f cosmetics because they have great pigments and a wide variety of shades at an affordable price. This Clutch Set has eye shadows, blushes, bronzers, eyebrow cream, and lip colors which are plenty of products for your loved one to experiment and have fun with!
Your Favorite Curly Girl - Mixed chicks Spring Bands ($3.99 on MixedChicks.Net)
Whether your aunt has rocked curly hair all of your life or your best friend is making the transition back to her natural texture, having the right products and tools on hand is essential for healthy locks. As they get longer, there will be times when she wants to keep them out and out of the way! These Spring Bands from Mixed Chicks are perfect for that, tying your curls up safely and comfortably without tangling or tearing. They also come in fun colors!
Mom on the Go - Winter Magic Bundle 5-Pack PocketBac Sanitizers ($5 at Bath and Body Works)
As a busy mom, keeping things clean and germ free has moved to the top of my priority list, especially when I'm out and about with the little one. That's one these 5-Pack PocketBac Sanitizers from Bath and Body Works make the perfect stocking stuffers for a mom on the go! With five super fun holiday scents a mom can keep her and her kid's hands germ free (and smelling great too!).
College Student Sister - SEPHORA COLLECTION Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof ($9)
I have a younger sister in college and between Homecoming Weeks, college parties, and trips with friends, she always has something fun to go to. That means plenty of makeup looks for her to create so she can be her fly and fun self. So why not help the college girl in your life be party ready with Colored Eye Liner from the Sephora Collection. With 31 shades to choose from, you're sure to find a color she loves! Plus, they're waterproof and last for 12 hours so her makeup will party just as hard as she does!
Young Guy - AXE Scented Bath And Body Set - Phoenix Gift Box ($9.99 at Target)
Shopping for a twenty-something guy on a budget is hard! Everything they love carries a huge price tag and not all of us have X-Box money. But one thing that a young (and single!) guy won't turn down is something that will keep him smelling good - especially for the ladies! This AXE Set has everything he needs to be date night ready - shampoo, deodorant, body spray, and a chilled face wash - all wrapped up in a cool box!
