This gift guide should really just be called my part 2 to the first one. It's stuff that is smaller that I've been loving and talking about a lot lately. This first one was a main overview and now we're getting into more details.
So this is like I said "smaller" gifts but also could be considered some good stocking stuffer ideas as well. I love stockings.....I really feel like they're my specialty almost. My mom loves stockings though and she would put the coolest stuff in ours and still does actually. They were filled to the brim and it just had some really cute and cool stuff hidden in it.
Starting off the list is a products I've been absolutely obsessed with for a few months. It changes the nail game honestly. It's Le Mini Macaron, It's a cute little set of gel nail polish, and an LED lamp the shape of a Macaron, to do a gel manicure. It works. I'm obsessed. It's actually super affordable it's $35 for a general kit (they have a deluxe kit too) and $12 for different nail polish colors as you go along. You do get a nail polish in your kit. I don't like going and getting my nails done so I do them at home. This changes the game. The original lamp moves forward too in case you wanted to paint your toes. I have my kit in Cherry Red but they were so sweet and sent me some fall shades as well and it's fall all day long in heart because I only wear red or dark shades on my nails. I'm obsessed. If you like they did give a code to my followers which is LOVEMASCARA15 which is not a commission code it's just for you and it's valid until the 31st. These are also available at ULTA online too. Obviously the code won't work on ULTA of course.
Next up is a lipgloss trio from C'est Moi. I think this so cute. It's one shimmery finish and two that are full color glosses. It's really lovely and perfect for travel size. I also really like the Found shimmery/glitter glosses. They are really nice. You can always find some products in the sale section of Sephora including their lips sets of the Sephora Favorites which has different brands and different types of products for you lips for lipstick, to balms. Little travel makeup products are the best. The travel or mini sections will give you some really good ideas.
Bath products are always fun. I like to shop small preferably and I really like Bare Naked Bath on Etsy. I don't have a LUSH anywhere near me so I tend to try different brands a lot. I really enjoy Elemis Milk Bath as well though. It's a really nice luxury, treat yourself, product.
Sheet masks are fun for stocking stuffers. You can now buy assorted ones but the Glow Recipe Watermelon sheet mask is really nice and smells amazing as does the Pur-lisse sheets masks. I also love eye gels and Patchology has that part covered. I use them when I have headaches or if I'm running a fever. I also use them if I have a big event that day like a wedding or something and I want the eye area super hydrated and as plump as can be so that my makeup lays better.
Another really cool gift that I've been trying out for a while is the Kierin NYC Discovery Set. They're perfumes are "Cruelty-free, toxin-free, free of skin allergens, vegan and sustainably sourced." It's 4 travel size perfumes and my preference is "Sunday Brunch" which is described as Cheerful, Energetic, and Luminous (I'd have to agree) and "Santal Sky" whose description is Warm, Inimate, Serene I keep them in my purse. All 4 are really unique though and they're unisex. Each scent has a story behind it of how it was created and the full size versions have the most stunning bottles. One of the quotes I seen that summed the company up best was "
KIERIN NYC is the first and only niche-fragrance to express modern, urban lifestyles celebrating the real New York City stories of inspired individuals with cruelty-free, toxin-free, vegan, sustainable perfumes for men and women.
First Aid Beauty as well as Fresh have some awesome duo's of their cleansers usually and either a moisturizer or a mask, that are perfect for a stocking or a gift basket. I love getting little duos on Sephora and ULTA to put into gift baskets or stockings and so there's a lot of fun stuff but also really good skincare to try as well.
I'm gonna leave it here. There will be plenty more small gifts in my other guides for each category and even some that can go in stockings. I just wanted to dedicate one post in particular to some good ideas to help put together a gift for someone with a lot of variety.
