The best beauty stocking stuffers to gift, under $20
The holiday season is just around the corner, and with that comes gifting season. **Insert Jaws music** No, but really, while it is a beautiful time of year, it can also be a little bit stressful our wallets. Yes, giving gifts to the people you love is a wonderful thing to do if you can, but that certainly doesn’t mean that you should have to shell out all your cash to make others happy. Remember, financial self-care is a form of self-care, and that’s why we compiled a list of beauty stocking stuffers that all cost less than $20.
From skincare tools and bath bombs to mascaras and hair spray, there are stocking stuffers for every beauty lover out there.

Firming and bright is the new sugar and spice, and you get them both in this wallet-friendly kit. Not only that, but you’ll also get a face roller that will help to reduce puffiness, improve blood flow to the face, and release any muscle tension you may have locked in your jaws (guilty).
