2016 Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide for Her

Stocking Stuffers make the world go round… is that a saying? Probably not but I feel like it should be! You can easily give a gift of quality without breaking the bank by helping to stuff a stocking! I am a firm believer in quality over quantity when it comes to gift giving and therefore you really won’t find “filler” gifts in my guide this year. Odds and ends just aren’t my thing! Below you will find my top 14 stocking stuffer picks for the feminine women in your life.

1. Beauty Masks

Sephora has masks galore this year! I’ve selected a few to highlight the face, eyes, hands and feet. Gift her with one or a few for a pampered evening! 

The Sephora Collection hand and foot masks, each different, offer a variety of benefits from anti-aging to moisture and renewal.  The peel off Boscia Muli-Masking collection, good for all skin types,  aims to brighten, luminize, and control oil. Each mask has a different benefit but my personal favorite is the luminizing “pore minimizing” black mask. Last but certainly not least, the Boscia Sake eye masks, infused with sake, antioxidants, and plant extracts will brighten, firm, and hydrate your under eye area. I love these! They are very wet when first applied so depending on how prominent your cheek bones are, it might be best to lay back and relax so they stay in place. I know this is a gift guide BUT with the minimal price of these masks you can afford to pamper yourself too!

$5-18

2. Sugarfina Rosé All Day Bears

Some might say these are just fancy, overpriced gummies… and they’re probably right… but sometimes a girl just wants to be fancy! Deliciously infused with rosé and pretty in pink, they sound like the perfect stocking stuffer to me! Not to worry though, they are non-alcoholic. 

$8.50

3. Bow Hair Tie Set


Okay, how adorable are these bow hair ties!? Made especially for the most feminine gals in your life, soft colored bows are perfect for dressing up the classic pony. Grab this set of 4 at your local anthropologie store or online. 

$12

4. Lush Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar


I cannot even begin to describe the benefits of the wiccy magic massage bar from Lush. This gift is for the extra tired, overworked woman in your life. The bar melts into your skin with warmth as the peppermint and cinnamon spice oils create a warm and tingly sensation for your aching muscles. To top it off, the aduki beans molded into the bar help to create the perfect massage. As it is activated by warmth, be sure it is stored in a cool place. Include Lush’s massage bar storage tin for a mess free way to gift this in a stocking. 

$12.95

5. Agate Bottle Opener


Oh goodness these bottle openers are gorgeous. Made of stone and brass to match the Agate Cheese Board I featured in my gift guide this year and just as pretty! Perfect to gift alone or as a tie in with her main gift!

$16

6. Nest Holiday Ornament Scented Candle

This NEST Holiday Ornament Candle will fill the room with warm and comforting notes of pomegranate, mandarin orange, pine, cloves, and cinnamon with a hint of vanilla and amber. At 2 ounces it adds the perfect little touch of elegance to her stocking without going over the top and could even be hung on the tree. Since it is a Sephora Limited Edition item be sure to pick it up or order online sooner than later. 

$16

7. GODIVA Patisserie Truffle Flight

Have you ever seen more decadent looking truffles? These are a dessert lovers dream! Thank goodness there are only 6 so we can at least limit ourselves slightly, right? This flight includes Chocolate Lava Cake, Strawberry Crème Tarte, Tiramisu, Black Forest Cake, Crème Brulee, and Vanilla Dolce De Leche. Let’s be honest though, most everyone loves chocolate and if you know their favorite then definitely go that route! But if you’re looking for an indulgent quality chocolate gift, this is perfect. Delicious but simple with an elevated, to match their quality, but not outrageous price tag. I would love these in my stocking but you’d be crazy not to!

$17

8. BECCA Glow on The Go

 

Have a beauty lover on your hands but have no idea what to get her? Also available in a larger size, this coveted BECCA highlighter is your safe go to! This duo is a travel size and will seem absolutely tiny, but the product goes so far and lasts for what seems like forever! She MIGHT hit the bottom of the pan in a year… the only downfall, while it is minimal because Moonstone is gorgeous, is that the travel duo comes in one color while the full size has so many to choose from. This duo is Limited Edition at Sephora, hurry to give her the gift of glow!

$20

9. Sephora Favorites Perfume Travel Sampler

As the safest beauty gift of the whole bunch, this perfume sampler allows her to try sample sizes of 7 different highly rated scents and then select the full travel size of her favorite. Included in the box is a certificate for her full travel size perfume which she will then redeem at any stand alone Sephora store (I don’t think JC Penny redeems them). The amazing scent samples in this box are Atelier Cologne Bergamote Soleil, Chloé, Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue, Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black, Marc Jacobs Mod Nior, Prada Candy, and Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium. She is sure to love one if not all of them and will appreciate the ability to choose her favorite. Be sure to gift this to someone with access to a Sephora store, the certificate redemption does have to be done in person. 

$25

10. Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil


Treat her this year with this luxurious lip oil. Available in three tints and made from a blend of hazelnut and organic jojoba oils.  It will nourish and enhance her lips and can be used as a daytime shine or nighttime routine lip treatment. This is the type of beauty product that most women would not buy for themself so you’ll have to do it for her!

$25

11. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil


Goodness I love this lip pencil. It glides on so smooth I swear butter must be an ingredient. Easy to apply and semi-long wear, matte finish but not drying, and great pigmentation! Available in sixteen, yes you read that right, SIXTEEN colors! My favorites are a perfect pinky nude, Dolce Vita- dusty rose (for some reason they have two names) and a perfect blue undertone red, Cruella- scarlet red. With the pencil application and creamy formula you don’t even need a liner. Gift this to the lipstick loving women in your life. They will thank you later!

$26

12. J.Crew Pocket Umbrella


Noticing a theme? Bows will forever be classy and stylish. J.Crew has this pocket umbrella available in 4 patterns, all of which are cute but hello… bows… This is your go to stocking stuffer for the picky girl that already has everything. 

$26.50

13. USB Tassel Keychain 


Love this! I came across this techy tassel during my gift guide research and just thought it was so neat! Turns out that many retailers offer them but this is the only faux suede one I found. A few others I saw are made of cheap looking faux leather so in my opinion this one seems to be the best quality. The lightning cable fits all iPhone generations 5 and above and comes in at a whole 5.5″ long! I know, I know, the cord is tiny. BUT for emergency situations it is perfect and would always be on hand. Until then it’s a cute, trendy tassel for your handbag or keys.

$30

14. UGG ‘Shaye’ Tall Boot Socks


Cozy socks are a great stocking stuffer and a very practical gift. UGG has a pretty pair that are perfect with tall, cold season boots. Made of a soft blend these are cozy and warm! They come in grey, black, and cream and are available at Nordstrom. 

$39.95
As it is my first Holiday season publishing gift guides, I would love feedback on how they fair so let me know! I’m tossing around the idea of a combined guide for Him so you might also see that soon on the blog. 

I honestly cannot wait for the Holidays though! Between it being my little’s first Christmas and the fact that I’m actually blogging, I am beyond excited for the next 6 weeks! I’m currently putting together my holiday post lineup so let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see and I’ll do my best to make it happen.

Love Always, K
