Let's level for a second: All this holiday shopping can be killer on our bank accounts. Especially if you're gifting list runs a mile long, the wear-and-tear on your wallet can start to hurt come early December. Anything after that? Ouch...

But the likelihood of needing to shop when our wallets are drained is, well, highly likely. Somehow a friend or family member will slip off your radar and, in a *face-palm*  moment, you'll realize you'll need to get them something to open, and fast—preferably something that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

That's why we rounded-up the best wellness gifts under $20 to give this holiday season. They're not expensive, but they are thoughtful and will leave your recipient glowing with holiday cheer. From beauty baubles and hair care surprises, to foodie gifts and healthy living presents, these are the wellness gifts to get in a pinch when you're totally tapped out on holiday spending.
