3 Last Minute Gifts We Love (All Under $40!)

I'm not ashamed to admit it: I'm a procrastinator. I always waited until the last minute to do my homework (Sorry, Mom!), and I still wait until the last minute to shop for birthdays and holidays. I actually think I function better under the pressure. (At least that's what I tell myself!)

After I shop til I drop this weekend, here are three gifts I'll be wrapping up for family and friends: 

Stila Snow Angel Color Palette: If you follow me on Twitter (PS: I'm @kerriwinick), you've probably seen me profess my love for Stila's limited-edition Snow Angel Color Palette ($39). Not only is it pretty look at, it contains 12 cheek colors and 18 shadows that can be mixed and matched to your heart's content. There's even a step-by-step lookbook included (a useful one, at that), making this palette foolproof to use. I love how the eyeshadows are on the more neutral side, but you can create drama by using them wet or amping up the shade of blush you use.

DIY Manicure Kit: Here's your beauty mission: Head to CVS/pharmacy and scoop up the Essence of Beauty Salon Safety Manicure Kit ($7.99). Then, pick out your favorite shades of COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss ($4.99 a pop.) This polish not only comes in a slew of "on trend" colors, it holds up just as well as any brand used at the salon, meaning it won't chip or fade 24 hours later. Pack it up all nice and pretty in this Round Lacquered Box ($9.99) from The Container Store. 

The Body Shop Schoolhouse Gift Box: First of all, how cute is the box that this must-have collection of skincare treats comes in? The Schoolhouse Gift Box ($25) itself is made in Nepal, and for every one that's purchased, a portion of the proceeds goes towards funding community projects there. Housed inside the bright green container are fruit and nut scented bathtime favorites, including strawberry shower gel, shea body butter, and more. Look good. Smell good. Feel good. You can't go wrong!
