It’s that time of the month. No, not that time of the monthI’m referring to the holiday season when time seemingly moves at warp speed and there are only so many gifts you can get in time for the family dinner or kickback with friends. In moments like these, you need to arrive with something that is secretly last-minute but still somehow satisfies the expectations (or unexpectations) of the receiver. I always recommend going the big-box retailer route and this year, Walmart holiday beauty sets are definitely the most budget-friendly but still cute options.

Rightfully so, we tend to associate Walmart with anything drugstorethe store carries virtually all of our faves like Pacifica and Maybelline. However, there’s a growing number of indie darlings with packaging that will have you convinced it escaped a luxe department store and formulas that surprise you with how efficient they are. You may find some of them while perusing the Walmart Gift Finder. On the other hand, if your budget is down to its last dollars and/or you’re on a time crunch, here are 13 gift options, from beautiful sets to tiny stocking stuffers, someone in your tribe will appreciate.
