When it comes to us girls, it’s safe to say we’re pretty easy to buy for, especially when it comes to little gifts and Xmas stocking stuffers!
But for any partners out there really struggling to find something for their beauty-obsessed significant other, there’s plenty of small, affordable gifts to choose from.
Likewise for any girls doing a secret Santa in the office with a group of people you might not necessarily know well enough, or if you’re looking for cheap and cheerful presents for your main girlies, check out these 7 ideas for beautiful stocking fillers.
1. Limited Edition Candy Cane Tangle Teaser
Every girl needs a tangle teaser, to stop those windy morning commutes adding to the list of our worries. With so many tangle teasers available however, this limited edition candy cane brush is perfect for the holidays, and makes the gift a little more special. Perfect for your partner, or work colleague, and if you’re not feeling too bitter, great for your bestie with the lusciously long hair.
Alternative: For a cheaper alternative, grab a compact brush and mirror kit that’ll fit easily into her make-up bag so she’s never at a loss when fixing her hair or makeup.
2. Stardust Highlighter
Another limited edition item for the holidays is this Topshop highlighter: Mainly because it’s called Stardust and will allow every girl to live out their #unicornvibes goals. It’s crystal white and the perfect amount of sparkle that we’re all looking for in the festive season. Transforming any outfit into a killer statement piece, the Stardust Highlighter will be at the top of every beauty queen’s list.
Alternative: If she’s already found her perfect highlighter, and refuses to use any other – try to find a few complimentary items by the same brand!
3. Burts Bees Natures Kiss
If there’s one thing we can all relate to, it is the pain of chapped lips. In prime socialising and drinking time, the festive season is also – for many of us – the cold time of year! Which means a good lip care regime is important. Having the best of both worlds like with this Burts Bees Nature’s Kiss set is exactly what we’re looking for. Featuring a lip crayon and lip shiner, these naturally mending lip cosmetics help us stay her stay on point with her party pout.
Alternative: If she’s already a lover of balms, but doesn’t opt for Burt’s Bees, there are always a tonne of lip calm and lip care stocking fillers at the local drug store that are cheap and cheerful for the holidays.
4. First Aid Beauty Freshen Up Kit
The holiday season tends to mean non-stop fun with family and friends, so this freshen up kit by First Aid Beauty is the perfect stocking filler! With a lip balm for those wintery lips, and a hydrating mist to keep your dewy reflection on point, this is the simplest way to keep your look stylin’ all season round!
5. Rudolph Konjac Sponge
The best thing about beauty stocking fillers is that there are so many available with a festive theme! This Rudolph Nose Konjac Sponge is a great choice for a secret Santa gift, or for a girls’ pamper night in! Infused with red clays, the sponge helps to deeply cleanse and revitalise skin which has suffered the winter elements.
Alternative: Give all the girls a chance to pamper at the same time by buying a few sachet face masks with amazing smelling scents.
6. This Works Dream Team
With every long night out, comes a grumpy sleeping beauty in the morning, so combatting that with This Works Dream Team kit may save anyone with a beauty queen partner the hassle of making bed in breakfast ( coffee, orange juice and pain relief tablets, most likely) every day of the holiday. This aromatherapeutic set comprises off a pillow spray for deep sleep, and a de-stress roller – helping keep her calm and rested.
7. Teeth Whitening Strips
To help keep her teeth looking as white as the snow outside, teeth whitening strips are a really considerate gift for anyone who feels a little conscious about their smile; nobody should look unhappy at Christmas, and this might just be the perfect stocking stuffer to help her smile even wider when posing for those memorial holiday photos.
If you really want to push the boat out for someone special, a one-off beauty box, or even a subscription, like this one from Lookfantastic.com, could be the perfect way to fill her stocking full of luxurious products at an affordable cost. With the beauty box, there’s no knowing what you’ll get, but there’s always something for everyone and it gives her the chance to find her new favourites for the upcoming year.
So those are a few ideas to get you started with filling the stocking to put by the fireplace for Christmas day. Of course, be sure to go alone on your beauty buying adventure – you wouldn’t want Santa finding out that she knows what her gifts are before the big day!
