The Best Beauty Gifts Under $25!

I pride myself on being a gift whisperer. I try really hard to customize my gifts to the recipient and make it personal as well as something he/she would not receive from anyone else. My favorite things to buy are little things or stocking stuffers. With that in mind, I created the following list of some cute, some practical gifts all for under $25. I hope this gives you a few ideas to either add to your own list or gift to others!
