They say that the best things come in small packages — and for any beauty lover, that definitely includes makeup, skin care goodies, hair accessories, and more. Since they're often relatively compact compared to other presents, it seems like beauty gifts were practically made to be stocking stuffers during the holidays.

However, small-but-mighty beauty products don't always have such a miniature price tag, which creates a problem when there's a budget involved. Thankfully, there are plenty of inexpensive beauty stocking stuffers to choose from out there. But there's just one challenge: Sometimes, they sort of, well, suck.

While they may be thoughtful, the truth of the matter is that sub-par products just don't end up being used. And whether you're the gifter or the giftee, you want a present to be something that's actually great to recieve.

The good news is that you can have the best of both worlds. Consider these 13 beauty stocking stuffers under $10 the solution. They're fun, useful, and exciting to unwrap.

These goodies are sure to please the most beauty-obsessed of 'em all, whether you're gifting someone else or adding to your own wish list (after all, even Santa Clause needs some help sometimes, too).
