For me, stocking stuffers are the best gifts during the holidays. They’re easy to give, considering they’re usually less expensive items, and they’re sure easy to get because you end up with not one item but a stocking full of goodies! I don’t know if people really exercise the art of stocking stuffing these days, but if you’re a product junkie, it’s a must.
The best part of loading up stockings is that you can buy a set of products, open it up, and distribute them into several stockings! I’ve compiled a selection of the perfect stocking stuffers this season for the beauty junkie in your life. (Or for you! There’s still time to add to your wish list!)
Tarte Pure Delights 8-Piece LipSurgence Lip Set
It’s the one thing you can count on being useful to any woman—a lip product that delivers a balance of color and moisture. I’ve always been a big fan of Tarte and their natural approach to makeup. The LipSurgence lip colors are one of their staple products. With this set you get four shiny shades and four matte shades, though no less moisturizing, so you can either give the set as a gift or break them up and―you guessed it―distribute them into stockings. Oh, and this set is just $34. Score!
Urban Decay Anarchy Face Case
This one’s a little on the pricey side for a stocking stuffer, but it’s nice and compact so it’ll fit perfectly into a stocking! This all-in-one palette, which includes eyeshadows, eye pencil, lip color, bronzer, blush, and highlighter, is really the ultimate beauty gift. It works for pretty much any age! From your teenage niece to your 30-something co-worker, the Urban Decay Face Case, which also comes in a ‘Shattered’ color set, is a foolproof gift in the beauty department.
Zoya Natural Nail Polish
Here’s an easy, inexpensive, and always-exciting-to-receive stocking stuffer option: nail polish! But not just any nail polish; I’m in love with the Zoya polishes for their Big5Free formula and gorgeous collections. My favorite is the Pixie Dust finish. It’s got mega sparkle with a unique textured finish. Definitely a showstopper!
Sephora Favorites Rollerball Collection for Her
I’m particularly excited by this fragrance set for a few reasons. First, I chose this set over a set of samples that included more fragrances because of the deluxe size of the five perfumes. So you get to fill five lucky stockings with a delicious fragrance, and the set comes with a bonus hand cream! But here’s the kicker: The set comes with a certificate that you can take to any Sephora store and redeem for any of the five fragrances in the set—pending availability, of course. So really, you’re getting five deluxe samples to give out as stocking stuffers and you get to have a full size of any one of the fragrances! Keep it for yourself or give it as a gift. I just love the flexibility that this set offers!
Ole Henriksen Ole La La Glow From Head to Toe Blockbuster Set
Here’s another chance to break up a set and distribute! As a huge fan of the Ole Henriksen product line, I know any beauty would be thrilled to find a piece in her stocking. This set is the perfect way to fill up several stockings. You get nine different products that you can pair up, group together, or split up completely. Or, if you’re me, you’ll keep them all to yourself! I love, love, love Ole Henriksen!
