Find the best beauty stocking stuffers even if you’re clueless when it comes to beauty gifts with 23 ideas for skincare, nail care, and makeup gifts for the beauty lovers in your life. 

If you don’t celebrate Christmas, these gift ideas work well for eight, separate Hanukkah gifts too! 

Skincare Stocking Stuffers 

Most skincare products are above $15, but there are fun, useful items for a skincare routine you can buy at a lower budget when you’re filling a stocking!
