7 Swoon-Worthy Stocking Stuffers
Stocking stuffers have always been special in my family. Before even going to the tree downstairs, we would sit on our beds and go through our individually wrapped goodies. Since moving out, I’ve only been able to continue the tradition (I honestly look forward to this more than the other presents). To create the same magic for you, I’ve found seven of my favorites that make wonderful stuffers for this holiday season!
You can never go wrong with chapstick—especially when it’s all-natural and comes in a cute little tin. Made with plant-based oils and butters that are cold pressed and hexane-free, this balm is perfect for those with sensitive lips (like me). Not to mention the fact that it also comes in rouge for friends who enjoy an every day pop of color.
Give the gift of scent this season with Esker Beauty’s Beneficial Body Oil Mini Set. And because it includes the clarifying, firming and restorative options, friends and family will be able to swoon over their favorite (or all three).
People are always asking me about my glowing-gold look. The secret? Glossier’s Haloscope in Topaz. This tube is the perfect stocking stuffer (I gave it to my mom last year), and gifts a bit of warmth during the cold winter days. Infused with genuine crystal extracts, the product also contains vitamin-rich moisturizers. In other words, Glossier has finally found the way to combine makeup with skincare. Au revoir cakey skin!
I have struggled with dark and puffy under eye circles for years. So when I was gifted a IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector in Medium last year, I was excited, to say the least. This product truly does not disappoint, and is one of the only concealers that have actually worked to cover my dark circles, and stays throughout the day. Dubbed “beauty sleep in a jar,” this makes for the perfect stocking stuffer.
I’ve searched high and low for a brow tint that lasts all day, and also helps my eyebrows to stay in place—they can get pretty wild up there. When a friend of mine gave me one from Mary Kay during NYFW, I knew I was in for a treat. The tint helps to volumize your brows, while giving them an overall clean color.
Plump lips are in, and so is this balm. These guys flew off the shelves when they debuted in London, so why not try it for yourself? Perfect for friends who are obsessed over having the perfect pout, the balm also works to moisturize and hydrate.
Eye gels have taken the skincare world by storm over the past couple of years. But because of this, it can be hard to filter through to the ones that work best. To make it easy for you, I’ve tested a ton, and these from Skyn Iceland seem to have the biggest impact. Practically saving my under eyes after flying 10-plus hours to Hawaii, they help to firm, tone and de-puff your eyes in 10 to 12 minutes. A must to gift to friends, but to also treat yourself.
