Small Gift+Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

The holidays are coming up fast, and I'm sure many of your haven't finished (or even started) shopping for gifts. I definitely haven't, I've only picked up one treat for my boss and one thing for my mum. I scanned the entire internet and threw together is post in hopes of giving yinz some affordable gifting ideas. This post features wallet friendly stocking stuffers and small gifts - nothing over $30. Every single item on this list is something I either love and endorse, will be giving as a gift or would really like to receive as a gift myself. Most gifts below are available at easily accessible retailers like Sephora, Ulta, Target, Kohls, Bath&BodyWorks or your local drugstore; as well as their online equivilents. I'll be bringing you a guide for larger gifts in a couple days, but for now, here are some smaller gift ideas! Click through!

Pixi Glow Tonic - $6-29
Toner may seem like a weird gift, but I haven't heard of anyone disliking this gentle and effective acid toner. Glow Tonic delivers noticeable results in just a few uses and suits all skin types. Pixi offers their coveted cult classic toner in three sizes 15ml ($6), 100ml ($15) and 250ml ($29). I recommend the 100ml size for gifting, it'll give the receiver about two month's worth of product, and it's the most easily available - its the only size you can buy in store at Target.

Where to Buy: Target Stores (100ml only), Target.com. Pixibeauty.com 
Pacifica Hand Creams - $9
These natural, vegan hand creams are rich and hydrating but non greasy. Pacifica offers a half dozen scents to cater to a variety of scent preferences. My mum is a huge fan of these hand creams, and she'll be getting one in her favorite scent, Indian Coconut Nectar.
Where to Buy: Ulta 

Glossier The Balm DotCom - $12
A great multipurpose balm that will nourish cuticles, nails, skin and lips. Available in unscented and coconut flavored. The Balm Dotcom has been my go-to nail treatment for half a year, and I don't see that changing any time soon.

Where to buy: Glossier.com 
This luxe looking brush is great quality and very multifunctional - good for blending eyeshadow or concealer, or applying powder to the under eye. you can even contour your nose with this brush! This is one of my favorite new discoveries this year. 

Where to buy: Ulta
This thick and rich body butter smells incredible, and it deeply hydrates the skin. This body butter heals dry, cracked elbows, hands, and footers. The little travel sized tub makes a great stocking stuffer, but the large tub would make an excellent stand alone present! 

Where to buy: Ulta
Bliss Facial in a Box - $12
I love this cute little skincare kit - it contains three mini products for two facial treatments. The directions are very clear, so even skincare novices will be able to get the best results from this three step skincare treat.

Where to buy: Ulta, Kohls
Freeman Feeling Beautiful Masks - $1.99-4.50 
Freeman offers a massive range of masks for every skin type. Grab a handful of sample satchets and tie them together with a ribbon, or pick up one or two full sized tubes. The Chocolate Strawberry and Cucumber Peel Off Masks are crowd pleasers, but you can't go wrong with this line. 

Where to buy: Ulta, Target, Drugstores
Pixi Endless Silky Eyeliner Quartet - $18
This set contains four of Pixi's incredible Endless Silky Eyeliners in basic neutral shades - black, grey, brown, and a deep plum. The Endless Silky Eyeliners are my absolute favorite pencil liners - and a lot of bloggers agree with me. They're creamy, pigmented, and long wearing. 

Where to buy: Target, Pixibeauty.com 


Bath&BodyWorks Mini Candles - $4.50 or 3/$12 
These tiny candles are extra cute, but still give off a good bit of scent. Buy a bunch and gift them separately, or create a custom candle coffret for someone special. There are at least a dozen scents to choose from, but I suggest Vanilla Snowflake, Twisted Peppermint, and Marshmallow Fireside for a sweet and festive trio. 

Where to buy: Bath&BodyWorks in store/online
Bath&BodyWorks Travel Size Bundles - $12
Get a coordinating travel sized shower gel, lotion, and body spray for under $15. Make your own set or purchase a pre-wrapped set in BBW's most loved scents. Holiday favorites include Twisted Peppermint and Vanilla Bean Noel, but you also can't go wrong with year-long favorites like Paris Amour, Japanese Cherry Blossom. and Sweet Pea.

Where to buy: Bath&BodyWorks in store/online
Clinique Black Honey Beauty Set  - $25
Four full sized (or nearly full sized) Clinique products in their classic and universally flattering Black Honey hue. This set covers eyes, lips, and nails - a great variety, and a nice introduction to Clinique cosmetics. Out of everything on the list, I think this is what I'd be most excited to receive. 

Where to buy: Sephora 

Too Faced Most Loved Set - $25
A five piece collection of Too Faced best sellers, including their Better Than Sex Mascara and Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. This set is very well rounded, with products for the eyes, lips, and complexion. Too Faced doesn't skimp on packaging either - their cute and cheeky aesthetic translates well into mini form.

Where to buy: Sephora 


Peter Thomas Roth Mini Mask Magic - $20 
A trio of PTR's popular masks in generous travel sized portions. Great to gift to a skin care lover, or separate into three stockings to spread the love. This set tempts me a lot, I've heard so much good stuff about this brand's masks, and their textures are so interesting.

Four mini Sephora Formula X Nail Lacquers in a curated color palette that provides a yearound nail wardrobe. A couple different shade groupings are available based on skin tone, all of them including a classic red and pink, a nude, and a bright blue. The Sephora Formula X polishes are fantastic, one of the best polishes I've tried in a while! I would love to get the Fair/Light kit!

This set contains two duos of L'Occitanes famed hand creams and Deborah Lippman's nail lacquer in crowd pleasing scents and neutral pink shades. Another great split-able set with mass appeal - great for nail junkies or skincare fanatics of all ages.
