In Partnership With Ulta Beauty

It's never too soon to start holiday shopping for those sweet little "extras" you just can't resist because they're so perfect for the special people in your life.

Ulta Beauty is the perfect place to find stocking stuffers and other treats for your girlfriends. The beauty mecca carries the best brands in the biz so you know you're getting the latest and greatest, from purse-size eyeshadow palettes to glittering glosses and so much more!


1. If you're the kind of gift giver who likes to get a little something for everyone at work, grab a bag full of IT Cosmetics ornaments. Each one holds either a tube of can't-live-without Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+ ($15) or a pot of Confidence in a Cream Transforming Moisturizing Super Cream ($16) – must-haves to keep your skin looking its best during a busy season.

2. In every group, there's that super-sweet friend who thinks of everyone else first. For her, there is no more perfect stocking stuffer than the TonyMoly Petite Sweet Gift Box($24). It contains an adorable pair of beauty helpers: a Panda's Dream So Cool Eye Stick (an easy-to-apply eye serum) and a Pocket Bunny Perfume Bar so she can swipe on the sweet scent wherever she goes.

3. There is nothing like a night in with the girls, giving each other manis and pedis. That one friend who keeps her nail game on point is going to appreciate the Love OPI XOXO 4 Pc Mini Set ($14.50).
