Gifting season is coming to an end, and for me, that means my gifts need to be more affordable and more thoughtful. With Christmas just a few days away and friends holiday parties are a few weeks away from an end, this is the perfect time to get people stocking stuffers that will actually be helpful. The end of the year is hard — we’re all worn out from end of the year projects, holiday’s and travel — so, this year I am especially focused on the best beauty stocking stuffers.
The Best Beauty Stocking Stuffer Ideas
It’s no secret that I LOVE beauty. If you came to my house, you would see the endless drawers and cabinets I have filled with all things beauty. My sister no longer even shops for her own beauty products. She calls me and tells me she has to come over to shop what I have. Keeping that in mind, I have some pretty good beauty ideas in mind for this year, that are also great for last minute gift shopping, and I have tried to make sure they are all travel sized as well so you can bring them on your next vacation!
Beauty Stocking Stuffer Idea #1: Kopari Coconut Lip Love
This lip balm is amazing. It is super moisturizing and, when you put enough on, it kind of doubles as a lip gloss. I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t love this product yet and they also recently launched this product with a few different sheer colored tints.
Beauty Stocking Stuffer Idea #2: Rose / Hibiscus Coconut Water Face Mist
This product from Anthropologie is an amazing small gift option for your friend or family member that travels often. Traveling dries your skin out so much and can result in making you look old and tired. Keeping something like a face mist and / or great moisturizer on you is always a good idea.
Beauty Stocking Stuffer Idea #3: Origins GinZing Moisturizer
Origins has some of my favorite products and if you follow my InstaStories than you know I mean what I’m saying. I always talk about this face lotion because I am obsessed. It smells amazing and feels even better on your skin, plus it works so well. I almost never actually finish products that I start and I am almost fully out of this one.
Beauty Stocking Stuffer Idea #4: Glam Glow Sheet Mask
Sheet masks are such a fun gift to get! They’re great for nights in alone or with your girlfriends and this Glam Glow one really works. I was introduced to the brand this past year and they actually really work well. Sheet masks have definitely become popular in the US more recently, thanks to Korean skincare being so popular, but it’s hard to know which ones work and which don’t. This one definitely does work, though!
Beauty Stocking Stuffer Idea #5: Benefit Mascara
Believe me when I say that this mascara will change your life! Everyone I tell about this mascara gets hooked onto it. For one, I get asked all the time if I’m wearing fake eyelashes when I’m wearing this mascara because my eyelashes look THAT good. Two, this mascara naturally curls your lashes so you don’t have to worry about using a lash curler anymore (I personally hate curling my lashes). Three, this mascara lasts all day long without dripping and comes off just by using soap and water. It’s AMAZING.
Beauty Stocking Stuffer Idea #6: Dior Lip Glow
My last beauty favorite for this season is the Dior Lip Glow. I got is a gift this year for my birthday from one of my good friends and it’s become a daily go to of mine. It’s really hydrating while adding a slight tint to your lips but without full on wearing lipstick. Plus, who doesn’t love a gift from Dior?!
