Beauty Stocking Stuffers Under $16


My favorite part of a Christmas gift to shop for (and sometimes even to receive) is the stocking stuffer. It's those sweet little extra trinkets hidden away in your stocking that can often be the most fun or useful items. I've put together a list of some very affordable little beauty kits that would make an amazing stocking filler. These are also great options if you just need a small gift for someone or are participating in a White Elephant or Secret Santa exchange. Apart from the mini value kits I've also found some individual items that I've either tried and love or think are would make a great gift.
