So you’re done shopping for your loved ones. Kids got their PlayStation 4, hub his new iPad, mom her new purse, sissy her Naked 3 palette. And then you remembered Maggie, your nail-obssessed officemate or Michonne your ballerina niece. What about Aunt Carol and cousin Beth? With your credit card nearly maxed out,  you have but three choices to make:

1) Ignore. Christmas is just another day.

2) Send them Christmas cards or better yet, those free dancing elves e-cards. Personalize it by inserting your family’s faces!

3) Buy gifts no more than $10 but wrap them nicely. It’s in the presentation mah dahlings!

If guilt is killing you inside, here are some fabulous gift ideas that will surely delight every woman in your list.

1. Philosophy Hands of Hope Hands and Cuticle Cream ($10, Macy’s) 

2. Soho Beauty Sponge ($6.99, Walmart). It’s a dupe for Beauty Blender at fraction of the price.

3. OCC Nail Lacquer ($10, Sephora). It’s vegan and cruelty-free.

4. Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Glossy Tint Lip Sheen ($9 each or 5 for $20, Victoria’s Secret). It’s similar to Clinique or Revlon lip crayons.

5. Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Ultimate Look Shadow Trio ($9 each or 5 for $20, Victoria’s Secret). It’s the mature version of fancy e.l.f palettes.

6. The Body Shop Fruit and Nut Lip Butter Trio ($8.40, The Body Shop). Dry and cracked lips ain’t fab!

7. TokyoMilk Dark Femme Fatale Collection Lip Elixir ($7, Sephora). Yes, a product less than $10 does exist at Sephora. This is intoxicatingly sweet and very hydrating on the lips.

8. Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara ($10, Sephora). Smudge-free bottom lashes, for realz!

9. Ecotools Retractable Kabuki Brush, (8.99, Target, Walmart,Ulta). It’s great for travel and the fibers are super soft.

10. Conair Bun Maker ($4.99, Ulta). Why do a messy bun if you can achieve a sleek ballerina updo?

Now it’s time to wrap, give it a lil ‘thought and creativity. These supplies are dirt-cheap and can be bought even at Walmart. 

Wrap gift in a tissue paper, then wrap again using sinamay. Secure with ribbon, finish by accessorizing with christmas balls.

Happy gift-giving beauties!
