Christmas is right around the corner and by now, I’m guessing most of you already have their wish lists complete and your holiday stockings hung up by the fireplace. If you’ve got friends and family who are obsessed with anything beauty related, check out the list of fun beauty finds below that you can use as holiday stocking stuffers that your friends and family will surely love and enjoy.

  • A MINIMERGENCY KIT – a minimergency kit makes the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone and everyone. You can customize your one yourself for your friends and family or you can buy pre-packed kits instead. Most of the things you’ll find in minimergency kits are makeup remover wipes, deodorant, lip balm, nail polish remover pads, breath mints and more in mini / travel sizes.

  • TRAVEL SIZE PERFUMES – it could be a scent that you know they love, one that they’ve worn for years or one that you think would smell great on them but they wouldn’t pick up for themselves. Perfumes make great stocking fillers because you just know they’ll be used, no matter what.

  • BITS OF LUXURY – with so many people’s holiday stockings to fill, luxury items are not a practical option. If you have a few people that you want to give luxury items products to, however, you can give them sample / travel size ones instead. These cost way less than their full size counterparts and is a great way to let the receiver feel really special. Small ticket beauty items like lip gloss, lipstick, compact powder and whatnot from luxury brands also makes great stocking stuffers.

  • BEAUTY SETS – you’ll often find a few couple of beauty products bundled up in small sets in aisles near or leading to the checkout counter and these are great last-minute stocking fillers because you don’t need to think too much about what to put together yet it won’t seem as if you rushed into getting that set present. The products in one set are often related to each other (nail are set, lip care kit, etc.), making it seem very well-thought of.
