Beauty Guru: 5 Indulgent Beauty Stocking Stuffers Under $10

Your best gal pals love beauty as much as you do. That's a problem because you can't afford to give everyone a Rowenta Curl Active Curling Iron. (Even though that motorized curling barrel deserves a standing ovation!) So how can you "gift" everyone without looking cheap? Get whimsical and creative. There are plenty of beauty gifts out there that won't cost you a fortune. And they'll be gifts beauty fans will want to receive for Christmas. Take a peek at these beauty-themed Christmas gifts.

Kikkerland Owlet Timer: Okay, how many times have I highlighted my hair or smeared a mask on my skin and had to sprint to another room to observe the time? Or worse - you have a clock handy but lose track of the time. You've got to check out this cute owlet timer. This colorful owl spins his head around as the time passes and then gives a cheerful ding when time is up! It's perfect for the glamor girl on the list and yourself of course. Best of all? It's less than $5!

Japonesque Complete Lash Kit: False eyelashes are a little splurge that many women won't go for themselves but may be curious to try. This neat little kit from Japonesque comes complete with two pairs of lashes, tweezers and adhesive glue. She'll love fluttering those perky lashes on New Year's Eve.

Goody's Ouchless Ribbon Elastics: The girl who has medium to long hair will appreciate this pain-saving gift. It's the Ouchless Ribbon Elastic! These hair accessories look like ribbons but they've got staying power. She can wear her hair in a low ponytail without experiencing ponytail slide. When you get tired of wearing these ribbons in your hair, they look great on your wrist too.

Essie Luxe Effects Nail Polish: Essie describes this gorgeous product as, "This hyperkinetic chromatic glitter is part jazz age shimmer, part space-age glamour and all the rage." You can choose between two glittery polishes including Jazzy Jubilant and Sparkle On Top. It's only $8.50.

Sephora's Instant DePuffing Eye Mask: The day after a few mugs of rum and eggnog may wreak havoc on your eyes. Holiday traveling can also leave your eyes looking puffing and swollen. Tuck this handy packet into a mini-stocking for a thoughtful, appreciated gift. It's easy to use and works wonderfully. Best news? These little mini packets are so inexpensive that you can pick one up for yourself too!

Present your gifts at the Christmas cocktail party in matching boxes or mini stockings. Wrap a red ribbon and a tag around them with a thoughtful note. Your stocking stuffers will be a huge hit!
