The best Christmas gifts you can get for under $25
Because we’re not made of money, geez
Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / November 30 2023
Let’s get real. While there’s no better feeling than showering your loved ones with their dream gifts, most of us can’t even afford to top-up our transport card on a good day – so it’s not always feasible to splash out big.
The good news is that you can still spoil your near and dear while sticking to a budget. And thanks to some of our fave beauty brands, it’s now easier than ever to snap up some cute gift sets without breaking the bank/eating cans of tuna for the rest of the Christmas holidays.
From cute skin care-filled baubles to the perfect mini-sized makeup kits, here are all the best Christmas beauty gifts for under $25.
Nude by Nature Radiant Charm Giftset
Flawless skin, this way! Perfect for your sister or BFF, the Radiant Charm Gifts includes mini versions of the brand’s bestsellers: Airbrush Mineral Primer, Mineral Cover (BTW one of these sells every 100 seconds), and the Mini Kabuki Brush. Not only are the mini products super cute, but they’re ideal for chucking in their insanely small (but oh-so-on-trend) handbag.
$24.95 at Chemist Warehouse
Innisfree Hand Cream Holiday Set
Innisfree never lets us down on adorable packaging, and this Christmas is no exception - just look at this trio! So. Pretty. It’s made up of three fresh, floral scents: Snow Path, Guesthouse Laundry and Pink Coral. We think any gran/mum/woman in your life would lose it over this.
