Waited until the very last minute to buy those holiday presents? Fear not: the 10 gifts in this slideshow can all be found at your local drugstore!
Festive tree ornament on the outside, architecturally-packaged and hyper-moisturizing lip treatments on the inside.
Treat someone special to an easy at-home, salon-quality gel mani in the most classic and holiday-appropriate of hues.
Candles are a good bet, so long as you steer clear of anything that smells like a cheap and cheesy air freshener. This one's great since it comes in a pretty glass bell jar-type container; plus, who wouldn't want her home to smell like just-washed sheets 24/7?
One of Maybelline's latest and most buzzed-about product launches, these look like lipstick bullets in the tube—but open to reveal rich, super-pigmented liquid lip colors infused with moisturizing balm.
The fun thing about DVD-hunting at your local drugstore is that you truly never know what you're going to find. A browse through Rite Aid's entertainment offerings, for instance, unearthed copies of District 9, The Faculty, Contact and Elf—winners, all.
Boots is a beloved British beauty brand that's finally made it to (select stores on) our shores. Any girl would be happy to unwrap this ultra-moisturizing, anti-aging set on Christmas morning.
An under-$6 gift co-created by one of the greatest supermodels of our time? Can't beat that.
Games are a fun, easy option that paves the way for a nice Christmas morning family activity. And if you don't enjoy a rousing round of Apples to Apples, you probably don't have a soul.
It's impossible to resist anything from Burt's Bees. Trust us on this one.
Candy's what most of us reach for first at the drugstore anyway (right?!), so why not gift it during the holidays? You can go one of two ways with this one: pick up the fancy stuff (Ghirardelli, Lindt, Ferrero Rocher) or opt for the tried-and-true comfort sweets. I tend to prefer the latter, but to each her own. Also of note: while most drugstores offer boxed chocolates, I think it's way cuter and more personal to buy big bags of several different kinds of mini candies, divide them into little cellophane bags and tie each one up with ribbons. It's a gift that says "I definitely bought this at the last minute, no two ways about it—but at least I tried with the presentation."
