Stocking stuffers have to be one of the best Christmas inventions, but they can either be hit or miss. Everybody loves getting a little something extra at Christmas time, but when it’s something that’s unnecessary, not suited to the individual or simply just a thoughtless gift, it can be nothing more than a waste of money.
However for beauty lovers, stocking stuffers are a great way of providing cheer and boosting up their beauty collections.
Under $30, these gifts are ideal for a last-minute addition to boost any stocking, or even for a Secret Santa gifting game. They’re also amazing quality, so why not buy more than one to truly spoil and surprise your loved ones.
Containing two nourishing lip butters, this gift set is the perfect inexpensive stocking stuffer. Both double as a lip balm and a lip gloss, and are in delectable flavours of Dark Chocolate & Cherry, giving off cherry ripe vibes, and Dark Chocolate & Peppermint, which literally tastes like a mint slice biscuit.
Nourishing cocoa butter in these leaves lips feeling soft, smooth and moisturized.
A festive, limited edition Beauty Blender is ideal for the makeup obsessed.
Beauty Blender is a cult-product when it comes to seamless application of foundation; and this ruby red colour helps bring holiday cheer.
The sponge is aqua-activated, meaning foundation will transfer onto your complexion with an air-brushed finish, not stay on the sponge.
A perfect, last-minute addition to a stocking is this limited edition lip butter from The Body Shop.
The rich fragrance of real plum extract from Turkey, fruits and florals are an addictive scent that just screams holidays and festive activity. Leaving lips with a subtle shine with no colour, this also instantly moisturizes lips while leaving them feeling softer and protected due to the inclusion of handcrafted shea butter from Ghana.
Ideal for: Skincare lovers and dry skin
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula is a cult skincare favourite that has moisturized and hydrated skin for over 40 years. This giftpack contains a 250ml full-sized Cocoa Butter Body Lotion and a 60g Hand Cream.
Smelling of coconuts and cream, the body lotion is a perfect full-body treatment, locking in moisture for 24 hours and nourishing the skin from the inside out.
It is complimented by the rich concentrated hand cream which can be applied on areas that need a little more TLC, such as hands, knees, elbows and feet which can all often feel the impacts of dry and cracking skin.
This body lotion from iconic K-Beauty brand Innisfree has the refreshing scent of citrusy lime, lemon and sweet oranges. With a lightweight texture, this blends seamlessly into the skin for a refreshing and moisturizing treatment.
With 80-90% natural ingredients, this would be the perfect option for clean-beauty advocates or those wishing to transfer to a more sustainable beauty routine.
Packaged in a fun, festive green ornament that can be hung from the Christmas Tree, this giftpack from L’Occitane contains three travel-sized products.
The cleansing and softening shower oil smells of vanilla and fruit, the texture becoming foaming and lathering once applied in the shower. An almond milk concentrate body moisturizer melts into the skin seamlessly and helps to firm and revitalise.
Rounding out the gift set is an almond milk hand cream that leaves hands feeling moisturized and softened.
Keep the festive vibes going all summer long with this delectable bath melt from Lush.
Smelling like a warm hug of cinnamon, orange and cloves, this is a great stocking stuffer for those who love Christmas and don’t want it to disappear anytime soon. Also containing bezoin resinoid, this helps to ease and soothe sore muscles that may have been overworked this festive season.
With a packaging-free design, it’s also perfect for those who are more eco-conscious or looking to reduce plastic use.
Simply let it melt into the bath, perfuming the water and creating a cloud of delicious fragrance that truly feels luxurious and relaxing.
