Stocking stuffers usually take one of two routes: either they are little extras like packs of gum, or very fancy goodies as the finale to Christmas morning in the form of money or concert tickets.
I’ve always been a fan of finding middle ground on stocking stuffers. Don’t just forget about your stocking stuffer and put in whatever random small things you can find. Surprise you family by fill-in stocking with useful, unexpected items. Here’s a cute idea: fill a stocking full of mini goodies for a friend. Are they in to cooking? Fill that sock up with measuring spoons, little gadgets, and a gift card to a place like Crate & Barrel or Sun La Table. Beauty junkie bff or mom? Hit the travel sections and pick out smaller versions of her full size favorites.
Upgrade lip car routines with this Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment. I have been in love with this lip treatment forever now, and this year they made limited edition versions with zodiac signs. Find the sign that matches your recipient for a personalized take on something that’s typically mundane. So cute!
These holographic eye masks from Bliss are so fun to wear (they are silver with little starts on them!), but also help to depuff the underye area. Another single use goodie from Bliss I love are the That’s Incredi-Peel Pads. They are single use pads that contain glycolic acid to smooth skin. The box fits in a stocking, but you can also open it break each packet into individuals.
This tiny little lipstick from Tom Ford comes in a bunch of colors. It’s small enough to pack in compact clutches or when traveling, and since it’s Tom Ford, it still feel deluxe despite its size.
I received this gift a couple of years ago and it’s one of the most functional things I own. It’s a mini spatula to help get to the bottom of skin care and makeup containers. Don’t you hate when the brush doesn’t grab the bottom of the jar? Me too, so I highly suggest this for a friend or family member who shares the same pet peeve.
Oribe is known for hair care but this year they took one of their best-selling scents and turned it into incense sticks. The pack comes with a tiny burner, so it’s a complete kit – and smells SO good.
Keep your friend organized with these cord wraps. They are super handy for earbuds and whatever other random electronics cords someone might have. Ditch the twist ties!
This nifty little wine topper acts as a stopper and pourer. Pour your wine, then just flip the lever to turn it into a stopper.
