My idea of the perfect stocking stuffer? Something that seems far too special to be stuffed in a stocking, but with a price tag that indicates otherwise. These are a few sweet surprises to have at the ready for hostess gifts, holiday party favors, and your beauty-loving besties.
Tatcha Evening Aburatorigami  ($15) – Made from the same delicate, gold-flecked tissue used by geishas, these clutch-sized beautiful blotting papers remove excess oil and refresh makeup without leaving a powdery residue.
OPI Muppets Collection Nail Lacquer in Rainbow Connection  ($8.50) – I don’t know a girl who wouldn’t go gaga for glittery confetti polish. It’s like a party for your nails.
Illume Monogram Votive  ($10) – Buy the whole alphabet and stow them away in your gift closet because there’s nothing more classic than a monogram and no more fool-proof way to give one than emblazoned on a luxe candle.
Jouer Lip Loves Moisturizing Lip Gloss Set  ($25) – Every year, a bazillion lip-related gift sets hit the shelves, and every year there’s one that stands out. These shades are universally flattering, the price is spot-on, and the packaging has a delicious French flair, n’est-ce pas?

Sara Happ The Gift Set  ($40) – It’s a bit of a stretch for a stocking stuffer, which is precisely why this impossibly chic box of black velvet cherry lip scrub and petal-soft balm is perfect for the girl who has everything.
Love & Toast Rollerball Perfume  ($12) – Everything about this hugely popular indie brand makes me happy. The light, juicy fragrances are all-natural, so they’re downright addictive, and the poppy packaging a gift in itself.
