Stuff That Stocking | Holiday 2016

stocking stuffers 2016::: press sample / affiliate links :::

One shopping day left, that's all you've got. Are you ready? I admit, I tend to shop right to the very last few days, but that's more because I have a hard time stopping once I get started in that mode. There is always a little something you could add to a gift, right? Or Stockings, I am a fan of over stuffing a stocking. Half the fun is finding the little bits to add to it. If you happen to have a beauty fan on your list, I happen to have a few recommendations that are sure to please.






Hard Candy (exclusively sold at WalMart) has a bunch of fun little lip balms and glosses perfect for stockings and a nail and makeup bag set for any nail girls in your life. The balms and glosses have fun scents- think sugar plum and cake batter- and fine shimmer for a bit of added glitz. Teens and younger beauty fans will especially love them, but the polishes in the Seize the Sparkle Set are pretty great for anyone. Two coats for a holiday red, deep blue, or green-teal manicure.

Give the gift of a perfect manicure with a very cute and sparkly manicure kit from Avon. The compact kit includes everything needed for trimming, filing, and general nail awesomeness. Add a bottle of Gel Finish polish for the full effect. The shade Glimmer is a nice holiday option, as the bronzey-gold shimmer is reminiscent of gingerbread.

The Pro Blotting paper Compact is an interesting way to de-slick and shine your face... Instead of basic blogging powder you have to touch, the Pro Compact comes with a slightly sticky sponge that picks up your blotting paper. You then blot like normal for a shine free finish that doesn't move your makeup.

Make the daily face wash a bit more fun and effective with a Konjac sponge or little Silicone Cleansing Facial Pads. Both options make manual cleansing more effective and add the element of gentle exfoliation into the mix. Any skin type can use either option and really, who doesn't want great skin?


Last up, a bit of balm. Everyone can use a balm(or four...) and eos has the sets to suit everyone on your list. The limited edition trios and duos have an assortment of fun scents including Winter Berry and Vanilla Bean (in the duo) and Wildberry, Passion Fruit, and Visibly Soft Honey Apple in the trio.

So, do your stockings still need stuffing supplies? Will they contain any beauty bits this year?
