Day 3 is here! Trendom’s 12 Days of Christmas is here to guide you with tips and tricks to get you through the holiday season. Over the next week and a half til Christmas, we’ll bring you the best holiday drinks, must-have stocking stuffers and tips on where to get those last minute gifts that always pop up on your to do list. Today we have 10 Must-Have Stocking Stuffers!
One of my favorite traditions on Christmas is when Santa fills my stocking every year. Both my brother and I have always woken up to candy, small toys, and other things that will fit inside our designated stocking hanging above the fireplace. As I have gotten older, it’s probably gotten progressively harder to fill my stocking, but never fear, I found 10 things I would love to find tucked inside that green and red oversized sock when I wake up on December 25th this year. (Santa – are you reading this?!)
Stocking stuffers are great for friends, too! Grab a few of these must haves, find a super cute stocking (they have adorable AND affordable ones at box stores like Wal-Mart & Target), and you have a gift they are sure to love. Check out my picks this year for great stocking stuffers:
Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub ($9.95)
I got this stuff from a friend for my birthday this year, and I can’t get enough of it. It tastes amazing and leaves your lips soft and moisturized, ready for all the ugly sweater parties and kisses under the mistletoe (Too cliche? It’s Christmas, I have no limits on cliche). Lush also has other great flavors of lip scrub if bubblegum isn’t your thing.
Kate Spade “Toast The Town” iPhone Case ($40)
I’m a sucker for champagne and Kate Spade, so I definitely hope I find this in my stocking on Christmas morning. Kate Spade has a ton of other adorable phone cases if this one doesn’t fit your style.
Too Faced “Better Than Sex” Mascara ($23)
This stuff is the best. If you aren’t already on the bandwagon, get on it this holiday season. Ulta has a travel size if you just want to try it out before investing in the bigger tube, which is perfect for stocking stuffers or small friend gifts. (Taylor Swift uses this mascara, need I say more?)
Lush “Big Blue” Bath Bomb ($6.50)
Lush has tons of amazing bath bombs, but this is my personal favorite. It not only gives you a relaxing, colorful bath, which is perfect for relaxing over winter break, but it leaves your bathroom smelling amazing for days. Check out their entire selection and hope that a few end up in your stocking this year.
Anthropologie “Celestial Coaster Set” ($40)
Can I just get the entire Anthropologie home goods section stuffed in my stocking this year? These coasters are the bomb and are a perfect gift idea.
LC Lauren Conrad For Kohls: Fox Necklace ($12)
Lauren Conrad has a line of cute, affordable jewelry at Kohls, and this fox necklace is definitely on my list this year.
Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels ($30)
I got a set of these in my Birchbox a few months ago, and immediately put a full set of them on my Christmas list. They leave you feeling awake and refreshed, and feel so good on your face, especially after a long night. You can get a pack of 8 for $30 either online or in stores such as Ulta.
Lokai Bracelet ($18)
They have a variety of colors, each donating money to a different charity. Read a bit about what Lokai bracelets are all about and start living with balance this holiday season.
Dolce & Gabanna: Pour Femme Eau de Parfum Rollerball ($31)
I love this scent, and it’s a perfect size to fit in your stocking, not to mention your car, purse, suitcase, or backpack. It can go with you anywhere and will keep you feeling fresh into the new year.
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish ($9)
You can get this at any local drug store, beauty store, or box store! I am super hard on nail polish and this is the best one I have tried so far. I love other brands, but in terms of durability and long-wear, this is the best out there (other than going and getting a gel manicure at a salon).
For whatever holiday you celebrate- I hope it’s the best one yet and that you find everything you have been wishing for in your stocking this year!
