Beauty Gifts They'll Fight Over at Your White Elephant Party
Dubbed "Dirty Santa" in the South, white elephant parties are essentially the gift-giving equivalent of The Hunger Games. You never really know your friends until you see how hard they'll throw down for a Star Wars-themed Lego set while in attendance. Beauty items are a surefire crowd-pleaser among all guests, and regardless of the price limitations set by your host, there's a gift set out there that will fit the bill — not to mention, get stolen at least three times. We've rounded up 10 items each organized by price point, guaranteed to make your gift the most popular one at the party.
$50 and Under: Banana Republic Nylon Travel Pouch
This sleek travel bag is perfect for storing essentials. And with a spill-proof liner, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser.
$50 and Under: Mount Lai De-Puffing Jade Facial Roller
Throw in a Starbucks gift card, and you just made someone's morning. These buzzy tools help depuff the sensitive areas of the face, thanks to the cooling jade material. They also promote circulation and drainage, and when paired with a facial serum, can help your skin absorb product better and faster.

L'Occitane's ornament is far cooler than anything we would have created in our elementary school arts-and-crafts class.
