The pre-holiday season got the best of me and admittedly I am WAY behind on my gift guide content that I had originally planned (sorry!!). The holidays are now here, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who hasn’t quite checked everyone off the gift list yet. One of my favorite things on Christmas morning when I was little was opening up my stocking – my mom wrapped every little thing in it so it took forever!
So today I’m sharing lots of last-minute stocking stuffers from either stores you probably have nearby or good old Amazon Prime. Bought all your gifts already? Pick some of these up for yourself – especially the gift sets that are only available at this time of year and are usually great value! Shop everything via the links and images below, where you’ll find even more options in each category.
Happy Holidays, everyone! Hope you all get to disconnect and spend time with family and friends.
Shop the Gifts:
Calendars & Agendas – It may just be me, but I get excited to plan out the year ahead around the holidays. I just got the May Designs Desk Calendar to go beside my computer at work and love the fun patterns for each month. It would be a great office or yankee swap/Secret Santa gift. Also, I’ve used an Erin Condren planner for years, which I love, but I’m thinking about switching to something smaller this year since I’m always traveling with it. There are so many fun planners of all styles and formats!
Makeup – This is an easy one for last-minute gifts. Makeup palettes fit right in a stocking and I love them because they’re easy to travel with and oftentimes have most of what you need in one compact case. Aside from palettes, any mascara, nail polish or other beauty products that aren’t super personal/specific to your skin tone are also great gifts.
Jewelry & Accessories – I got this cute jewelry dish and necklace in my December PopSugar Must Have Box ($5 off with code SHOP5!) and it made me remember how perfect any jewelry items are for gifts. My go-to is usually J.Crew Factory or Baublebar. A cute tassel or pom pom keychain would also be fun. And I got one of these bracelets that hold your hair elastic in a yankee swap this year that I love!
Skincare – I was at a yankee swap last weekend and one of my friends gave a home spa kit that she put together herself with a mask, bath salts, wine, etc. and I loved the idea! Face, eye or even foot masks are great stocking stuffer gifts. And just like makeup, everyday skincare products work well too, like a good moisturizer or hand cream. I’m a Rodan + Fields skincare consultant and I also love their Lash Boost, which comes as a holiday gift set with a free bag and mini eye cream until the end of the year (comment or email me if you’re interested!).
Winter Coziness – Hats with faux fur pom poms, slipper socks or my favorite mittens with the flap so you can still type on your commute. Whatever it is, roll it up and squeeze it in that stocking and whoever the recipient will love it. I’m getting a new down jacket for Christmas and want all of the hats, just saying.
For the Home – No matter who is on your shopping list, simple, neutral colored home gifts are always a win. Anything from good candles (hi, Anthro!), to a cute mug or water bottle are great ideas that I’d personally love to receive. Or try something like coasters or bud vases.
