Think about how often you find yourself power-walking through the automatic sliding doors of a Walmart, your closest Target, or the Duane Reade on your block. The drugstore is the first place you go when you need paper towels or you're running low on shampoo, and before you know it, the cold air of the freezer is tickling your hand as you reach in for a carton of Ben & Jerry's Half Baked, because Monday really kicked your ass. Really, it's a trap.
And this season, that struggle of walking into a store for two things and leaving with 10 is going to be even tougher, because every store is filling shelves with some sweet holiday stocking stuffers. So, you can pop in for toothpaste and exit with the perfect gift for anyone on your nice list. Plus, the prices are so low you won't feel any buyer's remorse.
Ahead, check out the best affordable gift sets at the drugstore — from a good hair day in a box to a box of Maybelline mascara — all wrapped and ready to go.
