Everyone loves a good bargain and everyone loves giving a great gift; here, you have the best of both worlds with a collection of beauty goodies that won't ruin your budget.  Everything is $20 or less!  You'll find something for your mom, sister, BFF, co-worker, girlfriend, and any other lucky lady in your life.  What will you be giving this year?

My number one favorite lip balm in a clever pack of three!  Sooth chapped lips all winter and protect them from sun damage this summer.

Three of Tocca's most popular scents (Cleopatra, Florence, and Stella) in tiny travel versions just as lovely as the full sized bottles.

A travel-sized luxury trio of perfume oil, body butter, and lip tint scented with notes of strawberry, raspberry, mandarin, and of course, blood orange.

Philosophy 3 in 1 Shower Gel, Shampoo, & Bubble Bath in Holly Berry Bubbly ($16)
Oh, you knew it was coming.  What's a gift guide without my beloved Philosophy bubble baths?  The Bubbly collection is my favorite scent EVER, and since it's becoming a bit difficult to find, better snap it up while you can!

Too Faced Glamour To Go II palette ($20)
A gorgeous pocket palette of eight eyeshadows, four lip glosses, blush, and a mirror for perfecting your makeup anytime, anywhere

Stila for Urban Outfitters Nail Polish Collection ($20)

Does it get any more luxe than this?  Tame frizz, add shine, hold hair in place, and add subtle golden highlights with this stunning hair product.  And the scent?  Coconut and lime.  Sold.
