Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide 2016

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.

Last-Minute Beauty Gift Sets & Stocking Stuffers

12.23.15-BeautyGifts-3

I’m usually so organized about holiday gift giving, picking out and buying presents for everyone in my list way in advance. For some reason, this year that just wasn’t the case. But thanks to a few of my favorite stores with great free, expedited shipping policies (placed a big order at J.Crew Factory on Monday and it arrived today!) and stores that carry pre-packaged gifts, I’m still good to go.

Today I went into Sephora and there were lots of fun gift sets still available – and they’re even open until 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve, so you can still pick some up before the holiday! And I love that most brands package up their most popular products into pretty stocking stuffers. Two of my favorites are bareMinerals’ Pop of Passion, with one of their new lip launches from this year, and Precious Pearls, with their top-selling powder eye shadows – both are actually ornaments! I also love Bliss Spa’s Citrus Stars, which comes with the body butter and soapy suds that I currently use daily, and Bite Beauty’s Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo, also with fun, sparkly packaging.

If you don’t have time to head to the store on Christmas Eve, I recommend you check out my gift set picks below, because some are already on sale and available while supplies last. The Sephora Favorites are always great because they include their top products and colors in any given beauty category (lips shown below), giving you the opportunity to try sample sizes before you buy your next lip color. And speaking of lips, the past few years I’ve stocked up on Buxom’s Full-On Lip Polish and Creams with their gift sets because of the value – and this year the Leave Your Mark set is perfect.

Shop my last-minute beauty gift set and stocking stuffers using the links below and Merry Christmas Eve!

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and whether you’ll be celebrating with your significant other or friends, I wanted to share some gift ideas, all of which I would love to receive myself. Read on and let me know what you’re wishing for this Valentine’s Day!

Valentine's Day Gifts

 

Gift sets with both jewels and makeup…

Two of my favorite brands – BaubleBar and Benefit Cosmetics – have teamed up for three Valentine’s Day gift sets. I love the Sparkle, Shine & All Things Fine set, which comes with two pairs of statement earrings, highlighter and lip & cheek stain. The Love, Luck & Long Lashes set has two stud bracelets and the popular they’re real mascara, and the Real Romance and a Rosy Future set includes an XO necklace, mascara and lip & cheek stain. {baublebar.com, $34}

Not-to-traditional chocolates…

Chocolates may be a traditional Valentine’s Day gift, but you can take it to the next level with these Dark Chocolate Hearts from Kohler Chocolates. They’re filled with a soft, raspberry ganache center that has hints of champagne and cognac notes, which is delicious with the dark chocolate. And they’re extra festive because they look like shiny red hearts. {kohlerchocolates.com, $9.99-$59.99 depending on size}

Pretty-in-pink flats for any occasion…

I’ve said it before, but I’m so picky when it comes to flats. I used to wear so many different pairs every day of the week, but now I stick to brands with high-quality flats that are comfortable and last. Tieks flats are made with Italian leather and they fold right up and fit in your bag so you can carry them along for any occasion. Plus they come in so many great colors, like this Fuschia, which is perfect for Valentine’s Day and into spring. {tieks.com, $175}

Fancy yet wearable lingerie…

Lingerie is pretty and all, but it’s even better when you can find something nice that’s also comfortable. Hanky Panky’s Candy Hearts Bralette and Thong are just that. They’re both made with the brand’s signature stretch lace and work for both special occasions and everyday. {hankypanky.com, $44 bralette, $26 thong}

Jewelry that makes a statement…

I always feel more put together when I have statement jewelry on, and I usually go with either fun earrings or a necklace. I’ve always loved Sole Society‘s shoes, and I was excited to try out some of their jewelry too. The Crystal Cluster Statement Necklace goes with practically everything in my closet, so it will be getting lots of use. And the Deco Drop Crystal Earrings will instantly dress up an otherwise casual outfit or can be worn with a dress for a special occasion. {solesociety.com, $34.95 necklace, $29.95 earrings}

A sweatshirt that can be dressed up or down…

I love that crewneck sweatshirts are back in style, especially because they’re now available in fun colors, fabrics and patterns. I especially love them because they can be dressed up with a statement necklace or dressed down with yoga pants and flats or sneakers. This L.L.Bean UltraSoft Crewneck in dark orchid heather has a more flattering, feminine look than traditional sweatshirts and it’s nice and cozy. {llbean.com, $39.95}

A pouch to keep things organized with…

Big bags are my favorite, but it’s easy for things inside to get a little disorganized, making it hard to find anything. That’s why I love Hayden Reis’ Sea Clear Pouch. You can store your essentials in there – money, lip gloss, etc. – and then throw it in whatever bag you’re using that day. It’s especially good for the beach because it’s water-resistant. {haydenreis.com, $28}

Red and pink beauty products to get dolled up with…

A nice mani-pedi is a must for Valentine’s Day, and I’m loving SpaRitual’s Authentically (red matte shimmer), Dynamics (dusty pink creme) and Fall in Love (mauve red shimmer), along with Sally Hansen‘s new, limited-edition Patent Gloss Nail Color in Moto (red).  And I’m all about lip color lately, so you can finish off your beauty look with the new NYC New Work Expert Last Lip Lacquer, available in lots of different red and pink shades. It has the color of a lipstick and the shine of a gloss, and keeps your lips hydrated with color that stays put.  {sparitual.com, $12 each; sallyhansen.com, $5.99; newyorkcolor.com, $3.99}

Spa-like products to relax with…

I’ve always loved SpaRitual for their nail polishes, but they also have other great products, including candles, massage creams and body oils. As someone who is candle obsessed, I’m always buying new scents to try around the house. The Look Inside Candle is made with pure essentials oils and plant essences and the smell is instantly relaxing. And then both the Close Your Eyes Body Oil and Massage Cream are great for at-home massages. I also like to use body oil in the shower for extra hydration. {sparitual.com, $35 each}

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Guys & Easy Canvas Giveaway

This next gift guide is for the special guys in our lives, which I find to be surprisingly difficult to shop for! Does anyone else feel like guys tend to buy what they need and want for themselves? These gifts are great for Christmas and really any gift occasion, whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day and so on.

Gifts for Guys
  • Easy Canvas PrintsMy go-to gift for my husband and dad are photos, and it’s not just because I love them. They just don’t go through the process of picking out and printing them, so they like when I do it for them. Lately I’ve been loving photo canvases like these from Easy Canvas. They make your prints look really professional and come in lots of sizes ranging from 8 x 10 to 24 x 36. Scroll down to enter to win a photo canvas! {easycanvasprints.com, prices vary based on size}
  • Sharper Image Sheepskin SlippersWho doesn’t want a nice pair of slippers for wearing around the house? These are fully lined up to your ankles and are have comfortable cushioning in them. Plus, they’re good for indoor and outdoor use. {sharperimage.com, $99.99}
  • Hydro Flask Insulated Water Bottle & Beer Growler: I’ve never seen a water bottle this big, but I know I love Hydro Flask and that my husband drinks a ton of water. This one holds 64 oz and keeps your water (or beer) icy cold for up to 24 hours, while hot liquids remain steaming hot for up to 12. {hydroflask.com, $54.99}
  • Baron Tequila PlatinumYou can’t really go wrong with alcohol, especially when it’s really good alcohol like this tequila. It’s a new, ultra-premium tequila handcrafted in Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico and certified gluten free and kosher. {baronspirits.com, $55}
  • Sephora Favorites Cologne SamplerThis is a great way to let your guy find his new favorite cologne because it comes with 12 samples and then you can redeem a voucher that comes with it for one full-size cologne of your choice. {sephora.com, $60}

Giveaway! Easy Canvas is offering one lucky reader the chance to win a 16 x 20″ canvas print below. The giveaway is running now through January 29, 2015 – open to U.S. residents.

Holiday Gift Guide: Yankee Swap Gifts & Temple Spa Giveaway

Christmas may be tomorrow, but my friends and I always do our annual Yankee Swap in between Christmas and New Year’s, when the craziness of catching up with family and whatnot dies down a bit. Yankee Swaps usually have a certain price point, so I’m sharing lots of options below, with everything from jewelry and makeup to candles and vino. And at the bottom of the post you can enter to win an amazing candle from Temple Spa!

And while I love all of the gift ideas below, it’s important to note that the best part of these Yankee Swap get togethers, as well as all of my family events around the holidays, is getting to spent time with loved ones from all over the country. I’m lucky to have healthy, happy family and friends, and that’s all I could ever ask for.

Yankee Swap Gifts

 

  • For the makeup lover… this Sephora Collection Color Festival ($49.50) is perfect – and under $50. It’s a makeup palette with 130 colors for the eyes, lips, and cheeks, and it also comes with six different tutorials to show you how to use the products. {sephora.com}
  • For the vino or bubbly drinker… go with a bottle from Santa Margherita. I’m a pinot grigio gal and I can tell you theirs is absolutely one of my favorites for drinking on its own or pairing with lots of different dishes, such as pasta, chicken and seafood. I also love the prosecco, sparkling rose and chianto classico riserva. Might have to have the prosecco or rose to celebrate on New Year’s! {santamargherita.us}
  • For the girl on the go… she definitely needs a fun travel mug. This P.J. Salvage Stripe Travel Mug ($22) is perfect! It comes in a pretty gift box already and has lots of bright colors and even a nonslip sleeve for hot drinks. {pjsalvage.com}
  • For the girl who loves to (or needs to) relax… get her the Skin & Co Umbrian Magnificico Bath Set (now $52). It includes three products from their popular lines, the Umbrian truffle exfoliating gel, Organic Rosemary & Verbena Exfoliating Gel and Fresh Lavender Exfoliating Gel. {skinandcoroma.com}

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Fitness Lover & Gaiam Giveaway

I love good workout gear, so that’s why I’m sharing some great fitness finds to give as gifts or buy for yourself with your holiday cash. And you can enter to win some goodies from Gaiam at the end of the post!

Fitness Gifts
  • Heading to a yoga or barre class but don’t have time to spend time getting ready for afternoon errands afterwards? Try the bareMinerals Fit and Fabulous makeup kit (now $19). It comes with the essentials – Purifying Facial Cleanser, READY Touch Veil, Locked & Coated Waterproof Lash Topcoat, Jack of All Trades Lip Balm and pretty hair ties. {ulta.com}
  • If you’re like me then you live in yoga pants in the evenings and over the weekends. The Cozy Orange Juno Fitted Yoga Pants ($64) are so comfortable and the gray and black color blocking on the legs even has a slimming effect. They’re perfect for everyday wear and of course yoga and other fitness activities. {cozyorange.com}
  • I love a good water bottle, so I was excited to finally get one from bkr. The website says it perfectly – this “luxe, bubbly glass bottle will change the way you drink your water forever.” I have one in Pout ($30), which is a pale pink that just makes me happy. {mybkr.com}
  • Ritual Wellness Juices taste so good that you won’t even realize you’re being healthy. They give you lots of fruits and veggies, with each bottle of the raw organic juices containing lots of nutrition and healthy vitamins. All you have to do is choose a minimum of six juices at a time from four different categories – Greens, Lemonades, Blends and Mylks. They’re all meant to complement your regular, healthy diet. You can even pair them with alcohol to make cocktails. My favorites were the Lemonades, but they’re all good! {ritualwellness.com}
  • Make goals and track them with Lumo Lift ($99.99), an activity tracker that monitors the number of steps you take and calories burned. Better yet, it also helps you with your posture, vibrating when you slouch. And everything links to an app on your iPhone, so it’s all easy to use. {lumobodytech.com}

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Dogs – Part 1

This is our first Christmas with Hank, so obviously I went a little overboard on presents for him. Below are some great gifts for dogs – a jacket, toys, treats and more. And I’ll be back with more ideas soon!

Gifts for Dogs
  • Ruffwear Quinzee JacketBefore we had Hank, I didn’t even think of the fact that dogs – especially little ones that live in New England – actually need jackets. Hank likes this one – it’s lightweight but insulated so it keeps him warm. It also has a buckle on each side so it’s super easy to get on and off of him. {ruffwear.com, $84.95}
  • Ruffwear Bivy Cinch BowlBefore we had this, when we brought Hank to a friend’s house and had to feed him, we would either put his food in a ziplock bag or tupperware. But with this bowl, you can put the food in there and it collapses flat so it barely takes up any room in your bag, and then you can expand it into a bowl when he’s ready to eat. {ruffwear.com, $29.95}
  • P.L.A.Y. Pet Lifestyle and You Santa’s Little Squeakers: Hank has been playing with these festive toys since the second they arrived. I originally planned on hanging them as ornaments until Christmas, but he was too happy with them for me to take them away. The set comes with five plush toys inspired by some of the best parts of Christmas – snowflakes, fir trees and ugly holiday sweaters – and they’re filled with eco-friendly soft PlanetFill polyfiber. They even have a double layer exterior and stitching that makes them more durable than most toys – they’re still in great shape even after lots of play time. {petplay.com, $37.90 for the set, $6.50-$12.90 individually}
  • P.L.A.Y. Pet Lifestyle and You Big Bone: This is great for bringing on-the-go – and when we’re at home, Hank lays with it in his bed. This bone-shaped cushion gives him neck support and it also transforms into a blanket and thinner pillow. Right now, we have the blanket zipped off so he can cuddle with it. Both the pillow and blanket are super soft too. {petplay.com, $59}
  • Whole Paws Gingerbread Large Dog BiscuitsHank loves these gingerbread dog biscuits. They’re made with wholesome, all natural ingredients – no artificial flavors, by-products, unnecessary grains or fillers – so I can feel good about giving him treats. {Whole Foods}
  • Soggy Doggy DoormatI love these door mats because they actually look nice in your home and also do what they’re supposed to – absorb water and mud when Hank comes in the door. They’re quick drying and stay odor and bacteria free. You can even use it as a soft crate liner or a placemat for your dog’s food. The only downfall is that Hank sometimes tries to use it as a blanket because it’s so soft. Promo code! UseEXAM20 for 20% off. {soggydoggydoormat.com, $21.99 for small doormat}
  • Fruitables Vanilla Snowflake Flavor Treats: Hank has loved Fruitables since we first brought him home, so I was excited to hear about these. They’re made with real snowflakes – 300 from the mountains in Crested Butte, Colorado to be exact – plus pumpkin granola and yogurt, all for only nine calories. The packaging is also nice and festive for the holidays. {pet360.com, $4.99}
  • Indigo Smokehouse Strips by PetSafeThis safe, healthy jerky alternative is made in the USA with real fresh chicken or pork as the main ingredient. They have a smoked and cured flavor that your pup will love and they’re vacuum sealed for freshness. {petsafe.net, $2.99}
  • ORGANIX Jerky Chip Cookies: These all-natural dog cookie treats are oven-baked with organic oatmeal and protein-packed jerky chips from chicken, salmon, beef liver or lamb. They also have organic fruits and veggies, like peas, apples and carrots. {wag.com, $6.99}

Holiday Gift Guide: Beauty Gift Sets – Part 1 & Josie Maran Giveaway

Hard to believe that there’s just over a week until Christmas! Today I’m sharing some great beauty gift sets. They’re from well-known and reputable brands – and when you buy products like this, you can get such a deal. Better yet, QVC is giving you the chance to win a Josie Maran gift set at the bottom of this gift guide, so read on!

Beauty Gift Sets
  • Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light Holiday Color CollectionQVC is a great place to find presents, especially exclusive beauty gift sets. I had never tried Josie Maran’s Pure Argan Oil Light but heard great things – you can use it on pretty much everything, from moisturizing your face, treating split ends or conditioning cuticles. The set also comes with Argan Beautiful Eyes in great neutrals, and then Argan Black Oil Mascara for your lashes. Top it all off with the Argan High Gloss Lip Quench that you can wear on its own or over your favorite lip color for a pop of shine. Scroll down to enter to win this gift set! {qvc.com, $69.96}
  • bareMinerals Vision of Light: For less than $50, you get almost $150 of bareMinerals products with this set. I’ve been using bareMinerals for years and you really can’t go wrong with any of their products, and this comes with everything you need for glowing eyes, face and lips, such as the Stroke of Light Highlighter and eyeliner, eye color, mascara and more. {ulta.com, $49}
  • Benefit Sweet TintationsThis set includes some of Benefit’s most popular products – benetint, lollitint, benebalm and lollibalm. The balms give you hydration and sheer color that can be worn both on its own or over your favorite lip color. And the best thing about the tints are that they can be used on both your cheeks and lips. Just layer onto either until you get the amount of color you want and then blend with your fingertip. {benefitcosmetics.com, $26}
  • BUXOM Lip Gloss RouletteI love the lip glosses included in this set, and the packaging is so fun that it makes it a great gift. It comes with 15 mini Full-On shimmery lip polishes and smooth lip creams – so you pretty much have one to match any outfit or beauty look you can think of. {sephora.com & in-stores, $59}
  • Formula X Paint the TownIf you want nail polish for any occasion, this set is for you. It comes with 22 mini lacquers in so many colors – metallics, glitters, pinks, purples, neutrals and more. It’s a $139 value, so grab one before they run out because they’re on sale! {sephora.com, now $39!}
