Gift Guide | Stocking Stuffers

December 20, 2018


The countdown is on, people- four days until Christmas!

The last piece of the holiday shopping puzzle is always stocking stuffers. Although it tends to get overlooked, sometimes it can be the easiest and most fun.

The key to stuffing stockings is to find small items in an affordable price range, with a few unexpected surprises mixed in. For the ladies, it can be things like makeup, jewelry, hair accessories and other fun goodies. I put together my final gift guide of the season with pretty products that are perfect for that sock hanging on the mantle.

This bareMinerals lip kit from Ulta is so freaking pretty. The packaging of the lipsticks is star-studded and sparkly. It comes with eight different shades that are all in the nude family; perfect for your winter makeup routine. The lippies are all mini-sized, which is a great way to try out colors and find your favorites. (Also makes them easy to travel with!) I would LOVE to find this in my stocking.

Every girl could use a cardholder, and this Vera Bradley style is one of the more popular ones. It can hold your ID, credit cards and some cash and can be easily thrown into a mini bag or crossbody for a night out or a quick trip to the store. It's an adorable compact style and less than $25! Pick out a cute pattern that the person you are gifting to will LIVE for.

Name a girl that doesn't love getting a pair of cozy socks... I'll wait. Old Navy has some adorable options for $5 or less, like this unicorn pair. These are probably the easiest stocking stuffer. They are perfectly soft and warm. A pair of fuzzy socks you say? Yep, it really is that easy to make us happy.

Maybe gifting slippers is a little cliche for Christmas, but I. don't. CARE. Give me ALL the cute slippers. This pair from Old Navy is so chic. They are a ballet flat style with velvet material and an adorable faux fur pom-pom at the toe. They come in six different pretty colors; my personal favorite is the wine purple. And for only $5, these are a MUST.

As the perfect little trial size, this sleep mask from Target is infused with grapefruit and Vitamin C to help brighten your skin while you sleep. We could all use a little energy the day after Christmas, and you can give the gift of energy to tired skin through this mask, along with refining pores.

Just like the bareMinerals lip kit, this Maybelline mascara kit makes a great gift because you can try out four different types of mascara and find your faves. Also the perfect mini size for traveling or on-the-go, it comes with Great Lash, Lash Sensational, Total Temptation and the Colossal formulas. For the beauty lovers who enjoy trying out all kinds of products, this is an excellent stocking stuffer option.

Have a world traveler on your stocking stuffer list? Why not slip a passport holder into their stocking?! This one from Vera Bradley says "let's go places!" It's super simple, so depending on the person's style, it is sure to be a hit. I love that it also has plenty of space for credit cards and forms of I.D. Even better- it has RFID protection to make you feel safer in the airport.

Three cheers for comfy thermal leggings. These patterned pairs from Old Navy look so adorable paired with a comfy graphic holiday sweatshirt. Talk about the perfect outfit for Christmas morning! My personal favorite is the sloth print. For less than $20, these can easily be rolled up and slid into the stocking. 

I secretly have MAJOR heart eyes for this palette and may just have to sneak it in my stocking myself. Also from the holiday collection, this bareMinerals Stellar Glow Highlighter Palette is the faux glow your skin is asking for this winter. With six different shades, I like that this palette gives a youthful glow without using glitter in the pigmentation. Whether you're gifting to a makeup pro or someone who likes to keep it simple, I think this palette can work for anyone.

I've said it before and I'll keep saying it- Alex and Ani jewelry makes for a GREAT gift. This delicate ring is on the more affordable end, which is why it would be a great stocking stuffer. Their rings are adjustable, which means they can fit anyone. I'm loving the moon/star celestial vibe of this piece.

Scrunchies are BACK in action and my 90's kid heart is giddy. For the lady who grew up with a scrunchie on her wrist, this is the ULTIMATE stocking stuffer. It will be a blast from the past. There are so many different colors and materials to choose from, but this set from Target comes with a great variety.

Now you can OFFICIALLY hang the stockings by the chimney with care!
