Today is the kick-off day for my first ever holiday gift guides! I am so excited to share with you my favorites, most dreamed about, all out amazing items that you must include in your holiday shopping cart. I wanted to start off with stocking stuffers because they’re easy to do and are not only great gifts for the family, but also the perfect small gifts for friends and loved ones that you can pass around all season long.
Laura Mercier La Petite Souffle Creme Set – When I first imagined what my gift guides might include, this body creme set was top of my list. I got this set last Christmas and it has hands down been the most used gift I received. I absolutely love the creamy, moisturizing texture of each lotion, and it feels like such a pamper session each time I get out of the shower to lather this on. It’s such a treat picking out a different flavor to use each day; my favorites are pistachio and creme brûlée.
Banjo and Matilda Cat Eyemask – I’ve had my *eye* on this eye mask for over a year now. It is pure cashmere and such a luxury item, but since I can’t sleep without a nice mask, I feel like it would be well worn. It’s also such a cute accessory for traveling in and if you do long haul flights on a regular basis, I would totally recommend this. Cute and functional.
My Burberry Festive Fragrance – Ah, my favorite fragrance (get used to the word favorite, because you’re going to be hearing it a lot in this gift guides). My first ever “grown-up perfume” was a Burberry scent, and I fell deeply in love with these fragrances ever since. I can’t even tell you how many compliments I’ve had when wearing this. It’s this deep floral scent that’s supposed to resemble London garden after the rain. I can put a few spritz’s of this on in the morning, and it’ll last well into the afternoon.
Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms – Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Glastonberry is my signature shade, so when I came across this little lipstick set, I fell in love. What also sold me about them is that they come with ribbon to use as an ornament. The three shades are a beautiful bright red, a pinky nude, and a peach nude. Adorable.
Origins Mini Masks – I live in Origins masks. I normally trade off between the charcoal, original skin, and ginzing masks. Whenever I’m feeling a break out coming on, I’ll put one on while I watch a tv show or read for a little while, and after my skin feels refreshed and deeply clean.
Moorea Seal Quartz Keychain – I found Moorea Seal when I was looking for a fun new journal and came across their ’52 Lists Project’ one. When I saw this quartz keychain, I knew it would bring the perfect amount of zen to my everyday. Quartz is known to enhance creativity and dispel negativity, and it’s the perfect key companion to all my daily travels.
Girl Talk Bobbi Set – Aren’t these so fun? Bobbi sets are crucial for any of my hairstyles, and I think these add such a cute touch! I also love how they’re french themed. Ooh la la!
Jenna Kutcher Mini Art Print – Jenna Kutcher is an amazing wedding photographer and blogger (literally almost everyone of her posts makes me cry). She also has a beautiful print shop filled with floral iPhone cases, pillow cases, prints, coffee mugs, and more. I saw this picture she took in Puerto Rico and loved how she captured such a serene moment. It’s the perfect little reminder of the beach to frame on your desk to dream of while you work.
Jenna Kutcher Don’t Quit Your Day Dream iPhone Case – What can I say, I just love her work. This iPhone case is freakin’ adorable and I love the quote: don’t quit your day dream, people.
The Tile App – I’ve gifted this to a few people now, and everyone I know that has one loves it. If you are constantly looking around for your keys or really anything else you can attach a keychain to, then this is the little gadget for you. Just attach it to your keychain and download the app, and you can find whatever you’re looking for in no time. And it’s the perfect stocking stuffer for your high-tech friends.
Calia Fruit Infusion Water Bottle – This is another signature gift of mine. I’ve given it to three different friends for each of their birthdays, and they all love it. I have my own too that I use all the time. You just throw some fruit in the bottom and then fill it up with water or juice. I hate drinking water with all the fruity bits floating at the top, so this is perfect because it keeps the fruit in it’s own place while still getting all the flavor benefits. I would love to see this sticking out of my stocking on Christmas morning!
Quay Envy Nude Sunglasses – I’ve been living in these sunglasses since I got them a few months ago. They’re such a fun statement piece that dress up any outfit I’m wearing. They also have a pink mirrored shade color that is just so much fun and goes with the nude frame perfectly. They’re great for your fashion forward niece or ultra stylish friend.
H&M Home Porcelain Plate – H&M Home is whipping out some fantastic new products, and I basically want to own everything in there. This little plate stood out to me for no other reason than the fancy puppy painted on top. I can already think of a million places in my house that I would love for it to go and a million different things I would put in it.
We Are Friends Rose Gold Headphones – I’ve seen these headphones circulating the inter webs for the past few months now, and I have to say, they’re never going out of style. Rose gold is the color of the season, and these headphones are the perfect shade. I also love the prism style of the ear covers, and with white accents they’ll basically go with any outfit.
Kate Spade Pop Clink Fizz Bracelet – I’m thinking New Years Eve. Your girlfriend would love this bracelet to pair with her sparkly dress to kiss you when the clock strikes midnight, trust me on this one.
NARS Steven Klein Cheek Palette – Everyone, and I mean everyone, in the blogosphere has been raving about this cheek palette from NARS. I have yet to try it, but I have another one of their limited edition palette’s and could not be happier with it. The formula is perfect and the pigmentation is spot on. With a highlighter, bronzer, contour, and four different blush shades, this palette will be the perfect stocking stuffer for someone just getting into makeup and the makeup pros alike.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my stocking stuffer gift guide. Make sure to check back in the coming weeks for more holiday gift ideas brought to you by moi!
