Stocking stuffers have three jobs: 1) Being small enough to stuff into a sock. 2) Being affordable. 3) Not stealing the spotlight from the main gift.
As achievable as that sounds, as we began hunting down our 10 favorite beauty stocking stuffers, we ran into a problem. While our selects did meet the first two goals above, when it came to the third, they didn’t follow protocol. In fact, we’re a little worried that these stocking stuffers are so useful, pretty, and otherwise top-notch that they risk being named the favorite gift of everyone on your list. Sorry about that. Here they are, though, in case you want to shop them anyway.
H20+ Beauty Oasis Lip Trio Gift Set
Despite appearances, the product in these tubes isn’t lipstick. It also isn’t a balm. Instead, the pigmented gel lightly hydrates lips and gives a healthy wash of color. And don’t let that blue one trick you: It reads as totally transparent.
Wander Beauty Pucker-Up Pouch
Tocca Meet the Girls 2017 Fragrance Set
An array of 10 different fragrances means she has to love at least one, right? We’re willing to wager, though, that not even one in Tocca’s line-up of minis will end up neglected.
Glamglow Youth, Contour, and Glow Set
We’re not totally sure what makes Glamglow’s products are so good — but they are. Give her this trio, which includes two treatments and a matte moisturizer, so she can try to figure for herself how they leave skin so instantly glowing.
E.L.F. Pretty and Polished Set
For the indecisive person on your list, we present this polish set. Ten colors mean she doesn’t have to commit to black, white, teal or anything in between. Throw in a box of nail polish remover pads for good measure.
Josie Maran Whip It Good Body Butter Duo
This stuff smells great and is super moisturizing. Admittedly, the packaging is a little bulky for the average stocking, so, if needed, remove the jars from the gift box and drop them in the toe.
Verb Hydrating Travel Set
$15 will let you give your favorite friend the best hair ever from a cult-favorite label that also happens to be pretty affordable.
Amika Dry Shampoo
She can dig out this dry shampoo mini from her stocking, pop it directly in her bag, and start doing touch-ups anytime, anywhere.
Tatcha Kissed with Gold Set
A layer of gold leaf tops Tatcha’s celebrated lip balm. While on its own this would be wonderful enough, pairing it with a gold-leaf mirror makes your gift that much better.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Mini
This mini luminizer comes in four different colors, each of which gives skin a spotlit glow without looking even remotely sparkly or otherwise overdone.
