The holiday season is now upon us and you know what that means. It’s time to pick out gifts and show your loved ones that you care and have paid attention to their interests. I mean, who doesn’t love browsing through the mall, Starbucks in hand, looking through stores for your holiday gifts — and, let’s be honest, a few things for yourself, too.
While gift-giving seems fun at first, it can very quickly become daunting and overwhelming. Malls are crowded, there’s so much to choose from, certain items can sell out way too quickly, and you become lost among browser pages, not sure what to order online — all while trying not to break the bank.
Below is a list of the best beauty gifts under $25 to give you tons of inspo for the ultimate limited-edition holiday buys and sets to give to the beauty-obsessed person you love the most. There’s everything from holiday palettes and skin care sets to cute press-on nails and more. Whether you're looking for an inexpensive gift for a white elephant exchange or stocking stuffers for a parent, your partner, a coworker, or a close friend, keep reading for great glam gifts that cost less than $25.
