As the saying goes, good things come in small packages, which cannot be truer when it comes to holiday gifts. Let’s be honest, big gifts are great but mini stocking stuffers are where the real fun is at. Not only do you feel less pressure picking them out, but they're also easy on the wallet, which allows for a more impressive variety. You can really cater to your friends and family's personal tastes: mini eye mask and lipstick for mom, pint-sized face mist and perfume for sis, pocket dry shampoo and mini Crème de la Mer for me?

Though they may be small, good stocking stuffers always stand out.

Click through to see the best bite-size beauty treats we’ll be giving (and hopefully receiving) this holiday season.
