12 Surprisingly Cheap Beauty Gifts

They’re all under $20.

Gifting when your budget is $20 or less isn’t always the easiest thing to do. But with beauty, it’s actually a lot more doable than you’d think.

Thanks to things like Sephora’s checkout line, mini versions of popular (and expensive) products, and Urban Outfitters’s growing beauty department, finding cool, quality, perfect-for-gifting beauty items on the cheap is a breeze. Plus, indie brands like Glossier and Frank Body continue to hit that affordable sweet spot, offering a number of items under $20.

We’ve pulled together 12 sneaky-cheap products from brands that generally warrant much heftier price tags below. Whether the person you’re gifting is obsessed with skincare or has an Instagram feed full of their favorite beauty vloggers, you’ll find something both they, and your wallet, will love.
