Every year, I’m always thinking about what’s the best stocking stuffers to give to my friends. I like to think that I know them pretty well, so I can hand pick some of their FAVORITE things that they’ll love! This year, I went to a couple of different places to pick up some goodies.
For my girlfriends who have a sweet tooth, I wanted to try this popular chocolate called Mast Brothers because I’ve seen it almost everywhere on Instagram and on social media. Not only is the packaging super cute, but the taste was really delicious with only two ingredients: cane sugar and 72% cacao. I also love trying out any new chapsticks because I’m always in search for the PERFECT one. I tried an all “natural lip butter” made by Light of Beauty. As soon you apply it, you can feel the cooling peppermint tingle and you don’t have to continuously reapply it because it stays on your lips for awhile! Last but not least, were these cute mini candles for $6 each. These were the perfect size and the perfect price! These can be found at Urban Radish a market and eatery right next to the Arts District in LA.
For my girlfriends who love makeup and all the fancy frills, I purchased some of my FAVORITE lines that I know they use and love too! Stila Eyeliner is the best one out there that doesn’t smear and is easy to apply. The fun thing are the fall and winter colors that you can choose from. In the summer, I purchased their neon blue to add a pop of color to my eyes instead of my usual black- and for the winter, I picked up their midnight blue because I was getting bored with the same black liner and wanted a change. If you sign up for stilacosmetics.com you’ll get weekly emails with deals galore too! So try and lookout for that and save a few extra dollars. Another favorite brand is Shu Uemura (which can only be purchased online) and it is my ultimate go-to brand because the lashes are soft, comfortable, and the most natural looking! The prices are a little high BUT the quality is better and they last longer too- I get at least 20-25 wears out of them! Because it’s the holidays, if you sign up online they’ll send you free shipping and 25% off coupons for anything on their site. Go and stock up now!!
This last shot wasn’t a stocking stuffer for my friends, it was a fun set of neon Christmas cards for me. I couldn’t resist!! And if you’ve ever been to Urbanic Paper Boutique you know exactly what I’m talking about! They have the cutest cards, wrapping paper, stationary, and just about anything you can think of- so don’t expect to come out empty handed!
