You don't have to pay top dollar to find a thoughtful gift. Sometimes the best gifts can even be found at your local drugstore.
If your friend or family member loves beauty or movies or hosting parties, you can easily use those themes to create a fun gift basket or grab some cute stocking stuffers.
TODAY Contributor Jill Martin stopped by with drugstore gift picks that can work for a wide range of people on your list.
When we release our 2018 gift guides, we make sure all prices are current. But, prices change frequently (yay, deals!), so there’s a chance the prices are now different than they were the day of publication.
