I can’t believe Christmas is just 2 weeks away! And, wow, what a busy couple of months it’s been! So sorry for being absent from this little space–moving, traveling, my birthday, & the Holidays have kept both of my hands tied, in regards to my free time, but no worries, I’ve got a great post today. Continuing on with the fa-la-la-Holiday vibes, and also sharing some fun photos with my blogging friend Rebekah, of a casual Holiday outfit- equipped with a little pop of red, today I am bringing you some great stocking stuffer options for her, in the sense that they are small enough to fit into stockings and most are under $50!
Let’s jump right in!
(You can also click on any picture below to be taken right to the website to purchase!)
1.) Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Perfume, $80-$130-This is hands down my favorite perfume for the last few years. A few reasons I love it, and any female will also love it is that the scent lingers, it doesn’t wear off in 20 minutes like so many perfumes we all know…right?? Isn’t that the worst, to spend near $100 on a nice bottle of perfume only to be let down that you can’t smell it by the time you leave the house? And, it has the best, but lightest, smell, ever! Trust me on this one. (It’s the pink bottle)
2.) Essie Nail Polish in Chinchilly, $8.99-The perfect neutral gray tone for the winter time. This has been a fan favorite, and mine too, for a few years. A gray neutral polish is a must for me! This color has been around for this long, because it’s that good. Also, I secretly adore Essie brand over OPI because of the tiny brush! It’s the perfect size and picks up just the right amount of polish, to give yourself that perfect at-home manicure.
3.) Mrs. Meyer’s Peppermint Liquid Hand Soap, $3.99-I have always loved this brand’s soaps, especially the lemon scent. They’re so affordable, they make the best smells that aren’t drying, and, let’s be real–anything peppermint scented or flavored in the month of December is 100% happening in my life. Not to mention these soaps are also plant derived and no harsh ingredients or parabens are ever included. Go ahead and pick one up for everyone’s stocking!
4.) Bum Bum Cream Set, $59- Ok, if you can get past this funny name then you will l-o-v-e this stuff. I got a sample of the body cream included with something I purchased at Sephora last year and OMG I understood the hype about it instantly. It immediately will transform you to somewhere like Jamaica, or really any beach–and who wouldn’t want a beach vacation, especially if you live somewhere where the snow just becomes first nature December-March?? This set includes a cream, a body fragrance mist, and a lip butter. All of these products are great for all skin types, and are incredibly moisturizing, without the greasy residue.
5.) Becca Après Ski Glow Face Palette, $54- My hands-down favorite highlighter that I still use to this day over any other I’ve tried, is by Becca. I tend to have skin that oxidizes, so that means most colors of foundation, blush, and bronzer, for example, will show up much darker/sort of orange-y on my skin, which is no bueno. This even applies to lipsticks! They always look much darker on me. This brand of highlighter is the perfect amount of kissed light to brighten up your skin during the winter months, but isn’t too shimmery, and definitely not glittery, if that’s not your thing. This limited edition palette is intended to give you “the perfect rosy, fresh-from-the-slopes glow.
6.) Touch-Zip Bouclé Tech Gloves, $39- First of all, do we even wear gloves anymore that you can’t text/Instagram in?? Second, how cute is the zipper on these? I imagine that you can zip them down for convenience, and then zip them right back up, without having to take them off and on so much. The material is super warm, and they come in 5 colors. I personally love the gray!
7.) iPhone Charging Bracelet, $149- I have to say that each year I become more impressed with technology! It is always evolving and improving, and frankly I just love cool gadgets these days. So how about a simple bracelet that goes with every outfit, but wait–it also charges your iPhone?! Yes. Yes, my friends. This thing charges fully charges in about 90 minutes and lasts for 30 days. It comes in rose gold, silver, gold, and matte black, and it ships free with code MERRY
8.) Gold Champagne Puller, $15.75– **Only 8 in stock, as of 12/9**- This is something that I liked so much I bought one for myself. (Insert the little monkey emoji with his hands over his eyes) We all do it, right? Buy ourselves the same gifts we gift others? Yes. We do. Anyway, moving on, I imagine this to be sort of a helping hand in the “oops I’m scared that this cork will pop off and whack me in the face or break something” department, or just for those of us that need a little more strength against the pressure of that pop. Doesn’t hurt that it’s gold finished.
9.) Marbled iPhone Case for 6/7/8 & 6/7/8 Plus, $20- The pretty neutral colors on this marbled case keeps it trendy, but classic enough to use for a long time. I love that it comes in basically all iPhone sizes!
10.) Frosted Sugar Cookie Shampoo, $5.99– I have used this line of shampoo and conditioner several times over the years, and have loved every single one. Not only are the formulas amazing, the smells can’t be beat, either! Can you imagine what frosted sugar cookie hair will smell like?! Be sure to keep your man away from your mane, for fear he may take a bite. Ha!
11.) Marbled Makeup Brush Holder, $9.99– If you can’t tell by now all things marble are totally in-from home decor to accents to accessories, and I am loving it! I love the neutral marble color of this brush holder, and especially love the gold bottom. Would go perfect on a vanity or a bathroom counter!
12.) Gold-plated Stemless Wine Glasses (2), $40- These are so classic, and classy! Perfect for a Holiday party or NYE, or, even just a Friday night on the couch! The gold-plated color is a little uncommon, but I love that it is!
13.) Lodge Moccasins, $49.50– A moccasin never goes out of style-heck, it never has yet! I have a pair of these in the dark nutmeg shade, and can vouch for how warm they keep your feet. I love that these can essentially be thrown on to go walk the dog, etc. They come in a bright red and a vintage champagne color as well.
14.) Pink Fleece Sweatpants, $29.96– This may be the official year of all things cozy. Everywhere you look we are seeing sherpa, fleece-lined, brushed fleece, brushed cotton, chenille–the list goes on! This is definitely a “trend” I have been completely on board with. Anything soft and cozy against the skin is a winner in my book. These cuties also come in a light gray, so snag them for your sis and Mom before all sizes are gone! You can even take a matching picture in front of the tree, cheers’ing your hot cocoa on Christmas morning!
15.) Wine Purifier, $79.95– Ever wonder why you wake up with a headache after a glass or two of wine at dinner? It’s most likely because of impurities and sulfites that are in our wines. So many wines have these ingredients, it’s crazy. This purifier sets perfectly on most wine glasses and also works as an aerator with the simple twist of the cap. I’m definitely getting one of these for myself! #wino
