Holiday Gift Guide : Stocking Stuffers

Long time no see. I have been in a rut ever since I returned from my vacation a few weeks ago. Call it "return from vacation blues". I struggled with getting a lot of things done that needed to happen (like unpacking, I finally finished that this weekend). Anyways excuses are excuses and I am sorry that I neglected you during my rut. I hope that my absence made your heart grow fonder.

Lets get on with the holiday show....STOCKING STUFFERRRSSS!! (sorry I am obsessed with stocking stuffers).

I can't help myself but always buy a bunch of stocking stuffers when buying my friends and family holiday gifts. They are cute little add on's that can beef up a gift or just be a thoughtful inclusion. I came up with a list of my favorite little add on's for the holidays this year, ranging from beauty to clothes and accessories.

Little beauty products are always a great stocking stuffer, they are a great way to give your friend's small sizes of products that you love (so they can fall in love with them too). I have already bought some of the NYX Butter Gloss trios, I am obsessed and my collection keeps growing.

A sampler pack of perfume or some luxe hand cream is always a nice stocking stuffer. I try to get things that I wouldn't normally buy for myself but are a luxe treat for someone (just because I wouldn't buy it for myself doesn't mean I wouldn't want to receive it as a gift). Lovely bath treats from high end brands such as L'occitane or Laura Mercier are great, everyone needs a little pamper session.

If beauty product's aren't for you (or your gift receiver) don't fret, there are plenty of great options out there. I love getting people things like cute little notebooks, coin purses or even a nice bracelet. Another item that is a little bigger then your traditional stocking stuffer is a nice pair of slippers. I have been eyeing the Minnetonka slippers with the fur inside, I would love to cozy up next to the fire in these with a nice cup of hot chocolate.

Whether you go for beauty products or other accessories, there is always a great little stocking stuffer that your gift receivers are going to love. There are cute little add on's available for every price point and they always put a smile on someone's face.
