Stocking Stuffers for Beauty Junkies Under $20

Introducing the 12 days of Christmas Blogging Challenge, I will be uploading a blog post every day until Christmas- look out for gift guides, Christmas collection reviews, DIYs, and lots more ;)

Kicking off my 12 Days of Christmas blog series, I bring you an anthology of some great beauty presents available for under $20. I know that around Christmas time we can get a little excited when buying gifts and want to buy presents for all of our loved ones- but, it starts to add up when you're buying expensive gifts for all of your friends, family, family friends, colleagues, pets... Here are some options for the beauty junkie that are sure to bring a smile onto their faces this Christmas! (And perfect for Secret Santa gifts as well ;) )

  • Bumble and Bumble The Ultimate Blow Dry Gift Set $18 - Bumble and Bumble is definitely a luxury hair care brand that are extortionately expensive here in Australia. Just in time for Christmas, they have brought out some limited edition mini sets that cover all of their favourite products. This set contains minis of their Thickening Hairspray and the Straight Blow Dry. Volume and straight locks sorted.
  • The Body Shop Strawberry and Mango Bon Bon $12.95- The Body Shop has a huge range of great body care gift packs for all different price ranges, Keeping with the under $20 theme, I have selected this dinky little shower gel duo with my two favourite scents, mango and strawberry. This would be ideal for body care junkies or those who love a divine-smelling shower gel.
  • Kikki K My Travel Adventures Journal: Explore $19.95- just sneaking into this giveaway, this journal would be a great gift for the seasoned traveller among us. An adorable journal to jot down the best parts of each trip, this book would hold memories for life. I would like one of these myself to document my adventures (hint, hint). 
  • Topshop Boypants $8- I can't find these on the official Topshop web store but I grabbed a pair for myself from the grand opening of the first Topshop in Brisbane last week. These undies would make a cute gift for anyone and they have a massive range of different styles to suit all different tastes (a staff member hinted at Jungle Book ones and I am on a desperate hunt right now FYI).
  • This Works The Dream Team $22- filled with two minis (gosh- who doesn't love a mini?) of the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and the Deep Sleep Stress Less Aromatherapy roller from This Works. This duo is sure to give you a relaxing Christmas and encourages restful sleep and calmness.
  • Lush Pillar of Fizz $3.95 and Lush Bath Bombs $4.95-$6.75 each- this one is definitely more individually-tailored to your loved ones tastes. Grab the Pillar of Fizz tube and fill with three bath bombs from their selection of scents and colours to give the gift of relaxation this Christmas. This can be as cheap or as expensive as you like depending on your selection but I can't think of anything better than receiving three handpicked bath bombs stored in a tube of heaven. Caution: make sure the loved one in question has a bath tub!
These are my top stocking stuffers this Christmas- I would happily receive any one of these gifts this Christmas! Leave your top Christmas stocking stuffer ideas in the comments below and make sure to watch out for tomorrow's post, my ultimate gift guide for her, him, and the little ones as well! 


  1. Hi dear,

    I like your pretty blog, I'll be back more often =)
    Do you want to follow each other on GFC and maybe social media?
    Let me know so I can follow you back.
    Kisses, Ana

  2. I didn't know Bumble & Bumble brought out minis in sets for Christmas! Seems like an ideal way to try out the brand, especially since as you mentioned the regular prices for their full size products are completely extortionate in Australia :(

    1. Yes they sell them at Mecca Cosmetica and Mecca Maxima! I bought a mini Thickening Spray a few weeks ago and not one staff member at either store (I talked to at least four about the spray) mention the set! I paid $16 for the mini but the set is $18 for the straightening balm as well! Pretty bummed about that to be honest!
