The Christmas Edit: Gifts Under $25

Wednesday, 2 December 2015
Since Christmas is drawing quite near I thought it would be a great time to do a beauty gift guide for you to leave you enough time to get your shopping list sorted and order online. This series basically just reads like my own personal exhaustive and unrealistic wish list but I'm sure my picks of the bunch will help you choose a special gift for a close friend or family member or even a treat for yourself. This will also be a four part series covering every price point so every budget will be taken care of. Without further ado, here a my Christmas gift picks under $25.

Rimmel Christmas Set $25.00
With just shy of $60 worth of included value, this set is exceptional value for money and includes everything you would need to create a gorgeous holiday party look. I'm a huge fan of the powder and gloss formulas too so it is one of those questionable quality cheap Christmas sets. You can actually know that you are getting good quality products. I also love that it comes with the transparent powder and no complexion items so it really is going to suit absolutely everyone.

Lush Golden Wonder Gift $14.95
Isn't the packaging of this just adorable? It would make a gorgeous little Secret Santa gift or stocking stuffer with no further effort necessary. It includes a Golden Wonder Bath Bomb and Stardust Bath Bomb. Separately these two items cost $14.95 which means you get beautiful gift wrapping and presentation for only 20 cents extra. 

Australis Velourlips Nude and Pinks Take Me Travelling Set $14.95
These are absolutely gorgeous little pack that give you insane value for money considering you get to try 5 deluxe sample sizes of products that retail for $10.49 each. They also come in a brights and darks & reds pack to suit everyone's taste. The Australis Velourlips are a bit of a cult favourite as a drugstore matte liquid lipsticks that performs extraordinarily well. If you have a friend who loves a good matte lip, you really can't go wrong with these. I personally bought these as little gifts for my boyfriend's sister and I'm sure they will love them.

Grown Alchemist Vanilla & Orange Hand Cream 65mL $24.95
I featured this in my September Favourites and it is still my favourite hand cream. From the beautiful delicate scent to the amazing non-greasy feel and insane moisturising levels, this hand cream is the perfect little luxury gift. If someone you know is really into hand creams and moisturisers you need to get them this. I have tried so many hand creams and this one really stands out to the point where it is the only one I would repurchase in favour of trying one of the other million formulations out there.

Ciaté Paint Pot Red Nail Duo $22.00
How completely perfect for Christmas are these colours? You get a gorgeous vibrant red and a beautiful glitter for a glitzy accent nail. If I didn't already have identical shades in my wildly out of control nail polish collection I would definitely be buying these for myself. The Ciaté polishes are also really great quality and have the cutest little bottles so you really can't go wrong. 

Urban Decay Revolution Lipgloss Duo $24.00
Who would have thought you could get a cute little Urban Decay gift for under $25? You get two little 3mL tubes where a full sized tube has 5.1mL for $33. That means you are actually getting way better value per mL and you get to try out two shades. I really think these are an excellent choice and great value for money. Even if you want to buy them for yourself to try the formula and two different shades for less than the full sized tube it is a great idea. 

Fruity Hand Cream Trio $19.95
Don't you just love these little gifts that come wrapped and ready to go? A gift from the Body Shop never goes astray and they have quite a few great little options like this one that includes three small hand creams in Strawberry, Grapefruit and Mango. I actually really like mini hand cream tubes to keep in my bag and I'm sure whoever you give this set to will love them as well. 

So there you have some great affordable gift options so cover your bases, whether it be family, friends, office co-workers, Secret Santa gifts or stocking stuffers. All of these also come from nice, quality brands rather than those random gift brands that pop up in the beauty isles at Christmas can be very hit and miss. Will any of these be getting added to your Christmas shopping list, or even your own wish list? Let me know in the comments below.

Stay Rosy.
