Can you believe Christmas is already here — it’s this weekend! With the birth of my first child on the 4th, this month has really just flown by on wings for me. But even though most days I’m in a sleep-deprived haze…I still try to keep in touch with what’s happening in the beauty community. Maybe you already have all your gifts purchased and wrapped under the tree, but if you don’t (like me) than this post is for you!
I noticed the other day that Ulta has so many cute and affordable stocking stuffer sets available this year. If you’re stumped on what to include in your best friends stocking, or you want to buy a little gift of appreciation for someone special, these products are what you’ve been looking for! I’ve only selected 10 of the top ones (in my eyes) and they’re listed in no particular order.
10 Stocking Stuffer Gift Sets Under $20
Smashbox Art. Love. Color Lips Set
Do you like your lip glosses? Smashbox’s holiday 2015 sets — Art. Love. Color — has the perfect set for you or a friend! While these lip glosses aren’t full size, they’re a really generous travel-size that will give you lots of uses from these 5 lip glosses that range in color from a pale blue-pink to a soft golden-grape. 🙂
Rosebud Perfume Co. Medley of Lip Balm Tubes
Do you have a friend who just loves her lip balms? Or who really struggles from dry lips during the winter? (That’s me!) Than this is the set for her! With three different flavors of lip balm, one or all is sure to thrill her!
BareMinerals Thank You Gorgeous
Another set of lip glosses, so if the Smashbox set wasn’t what you were looking for, maybe these will be! BareMineral’s Marvelous Moxie lip glosses are well known and loved in the beauty community. And with the packaging so darn cute, it’s the perfect gift to throw into a stocking this Christmas!
The Body Shop Soft Hands, Warm Kisses Shea
I am a big fan of The Body Shop’s body butters, especially their Shea scents, so this cute stocking stuffer really speaks to me. What a great way to introduce a friend or family member to the brand, right?! And right now, The Body Shop brand is on sale at Ulta for Buy One, Get One Half Off — so you can get two of these for a steal!
Whim Winter Nail Lacquer Collection
While these aren’t sold as a set, they’re currently on sale for a great price and nail polish always makes for great stocking stuffers. This winter collection has many gorgeous shades in them and the formula is free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde, camphor and formaldehyde resin. Whim paint colors range from the most loved creams to unique textures and the latest glitters!
Pacifica Mini Body Butter Duo
If you’re like me — and NEED to try out the Pacifica body butters — this duo is perfect! And this set has the popular blood orange scent. I’m always hearing gals rave about this particular scent. Have you tried anything from the Pacifica line? What would you recommend?
IT Brushes for ULTA Your Must Have Airbrush Travel Set
Have a friend who is just getting into makeup and needs some dependable brushes? I can never recommend It Cosmetic brushes highly enough, and this cute little IT Brushes for ULTA set is just perfect to gift to them. And the value that you’re saving on this set is great, too, right?!
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Glow on the Go
The Becca brand is all the rage now, so if you have a friend who is in on the highlighting — or ‘strobing’ — fad that is going on right now, this is the stocking stuffer you need to get her! Or if you’ve been wanting to try out the Becca highlighters but haven’t been able to decide between a liquid or pressed highlighter….now you can get both for less!
Maybelline Gilded in Gold Palette
This all-in-one palette is perfect to give a friend who is either just getting into makeup or is a makeup junkie like yourself. 🙂 This palette has it all, from eyeshadows, to highlighters, to eyeliner…and at $15 (plus you can knock that price even lower with this coupon to make it even more affordable!), it’s a really affordable price for everything that you’re getting.
Kissamint Miss Independamint
So this product can’t be purchased in-stores or at Ulta, but I heard about this brand recently and wanted to share it with you because it’s such a neat idea! Kissamint combines a lip balm with a breath refresher! If you have a friend who loves to get unique gifts…this is the one for her!

I picked up the IT Must-Have Travel Brush set and the Becca Opal Highlighter set and I adore them both. I eyed the Maybelline Gilded in Gold and the other shade palette and had to restrain myself from buying them. I like everything on your list!
I’d love to see any of these goodies in my stocking! Also, I give you so much credit for being back to blogging already. I plan to take about 6 weeks off after my second is born in April, so go you for powering through that sleeping haze! 😉
