Can I let you guys in on a little secret? When I shop for gifts, I usually follow this rule of thumb: if I love it and want to keep it myself, it’s a winner! I know, I know, sounds a little crazy, BUT, unless you’ve been given a list or are really in tune with who you’re shopping for (say your best friend or mom), gift giving can be hard. You don’t want to give them just any old thing, but you do want to make sure that they actually like it, so if you find something cool and wouldn’t mind receiving it yourself, you’re probably on the right track.
Everyone knows that I’m a product junkie, and I’m always being asked about skincare and beauty products, so I’ve round up a few gift ideas from my favorite places (Sephora + Ulta) that any fellow product junkie would love. Gift sets and travel sets (don’t be fooled: those can double as gifts as well) are everywhere, so IMO, it’s prime time to test out new products and brands without breaking the bank. Plus, it allows the person you’re shopping for (even if it’s yourself!) to try something new without having to commit. If any of these items where slid under my tree or tucked into my stocking, I promise, I wouldn’t be mad!
Best part? These are all affordable and under $100, which is great if you’re shopping on a budget. Also, if you just need stocking stuffers and need to get a few things that multiple people will like, nab one or two gift sets and just break them up!

Yes, there are larger gift sets that have a ton of bells and whistles, but unless the person you’re shopping for is fully invested in that particular brand, half of the products go to waste. Save yourself a litlet money and get them a sweet gift that they’ll still love but is not a ton of fluff.
