Is it just me or are stockings one of your favorite things on Christmas morning? I love small little presents that end up being the most surprising and fun. In my house your stocking is always the first thing you open and usually contains the most funny and useful items. Like that one year my parents got me a giant key chain, seriously this thing was huge, because I kept losing my keys that year. Or a new toothbrush or shampoo and conditioner. The older I get the more I appreciate the items like these, maybe not the giant key chain, but the practical stuff that I absolutely hate buying for myself. Your stocking doesn’t always have to be full of practical items though. That is why I have compiled a list of some stocking stuffers that I would be excited to receive or am already loving, and I am sure the women in your family would enjoy too!
This is my absolute favorite way to apply my foundation. It leaves my foundation smooth and streak free. You can use wet for a dewy glow or dry for a full coverage look. I prefer to use it dry. It does hold product, so you definitely need to keep up with cleaning it, especially if you use a lot of product. Four for less than $20 is too good of a deal and I highly recommend picking this up.
Another Real Techniques product I wanted to mention, because I just recently saw this and thought it was genius, the Miracle Complexion Sponge + Travel Sponge Case. This is perfect for traveling with your makeup and keeping your sponge, and everything else, clean. ($6.99)
Guys, I love this product! It is so refreshing, perfect for using over makeup to give you a dewy look or on bare skin, which is my personal favorite. Rosewater is known to have ant-inflammatory properties to help reduce redness and get rid of acne. I personally struggle with acne, and after using this product I definitely noticed a difference in my skin. My face didn’t seem as red and my acne seemed less inflamed. My bottle has lasted several months!
I got this brush in my stocking last year and loved it. This brush is meant to detangle wet or dry hair. I am very tender headed, having my hair brushed was my least favorite thing as a child, but this brush glides through your hair taking the tangles out as it goes. Not only does it come in several cute colors but it is also available in fun prints as well!
This is one of my favorite dry shampoos ever. It is affordable and comes in a ton of different scents. Perfect for when you are going on day two or three hair.
One of my favorite makeup removing wipes are the Yes to tomatoes detoxifying charcoal makeup wipes. These are designed for individuals with acne-prone skin, which is something I suffer with. These wipes are formulated with charcoal to help remove dirt and impurities, plus the black wipe is pretty cool. This item is super practical for anyone who wears makeup.
I love these liquid matte lipsticks! They come in several fun and neutral colors for an affordable price. They are the perfect size to drop in any makeup lovers stocking.
Give me anything Kate Spade! Not only are here purses to die for but the tumblers and coffee mugs are just as cute. Perfect for the working woman in your life who have to take their coffee to go.
I am pretty sure I tried socks like these from Bath and Body Works in one of their Christmas gift sets. Fuzzy socks are already amazing but add lotion. These socks from Aloe Moisture are infused with aloe vera to moisturize your skin and are super comfy.
Random, but who doesn`t love fairy lights? They are super cute to decorate pretty much anything with!
How cute are these monogrammed key chains from Sweet Stylings on Etsy!? These key chains come in a TON of different colors, plus she has a bunch of different styles to choose from.
Gift cards are not just for cards. Perfect to throw in anyone`s stocking. Give them a gift card to the movies, their favorite boutique or Starbucks! For family members or friends that are in college, get them a gift card for a local restaurant so they can grab lunch or dinner in between classes.
What is the funniest or most practical gift you have ever received in your stocking?
Thanks for reading!
