Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Best Stocking Stuffers

The Holiday Gift Guide 2012 continues with Best Stocking Stuffers.

One of the most fun parts of Holiday shopping is selecting the best stocking stuffers.  There is such variety in size, shape, texture, and so forth, but ultimately, the gift has to be small enough to fit a Christmas stocking!

Here are our 2012 Top 5 favourites (in no particular order):

Lotions:  A particular lotion favourite – Avojuice Skin Quenchers – are available in mini 30 ml bottles or bigger 200 ml bottles, depending how stuffed you want the stocking to be!  Scents like Vanilla Snowflake and Peppermint Shimmer are ideal for the Holidays.  For a more luxe lotion, L’Occitane Magical Leaves Body Milk is the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone who has dry skin and wants to be pampered.  Everything from the milky white bottle to the sophisticated scent makes this a gift that will delight any recepient.

Razors:  An uber practical gift, we know, but guys truly love Bic Flex 4 razor blades.  They fit perfectly in stockings and in fact their curve seems to have been made to match the curves of a Christmas Stocking.  Get a 3-pack for a perfect stocking fit.

Nail Lacquers:  For a subtle sexy look, check out MAC Cosmetics’ Glamour Daze Girl Trouble which is an iridescent shimmery steel pink. If you are in a sorority, dorm room or simply want to give lots of different women stocking stuffers, we love OPI’s The Top Ten which is full of minis of the brand’s best nail colours.  If splits into a two 5-combo packs or 10 individuals and features light to dark colours.  Another alternative for a serious trend alert would be OPI’s Pure Lacquer Nail Apps which are super convenient pre-cut strips.  We fell in love with shade Shaken Not Stirred from their Skyfall collection (above)If you are in a more generous mood, full sized application bottles (as opposed to strips) are also available from that 007 collection.  We particularly like ruby coloured You Only Live Twice, the tomato red The Spy Who Loved me, the vampire red Die Another Day and the gilded Goldeneye.  These four shades have built in shimmer.  For a splash of serious glitter, we love The Living Daylights.

Make-up:  We highly recommend the lovely holiday colours from Maybelline like PlumPerfect lipstick and Gutsy Green Eye Studio shadow set; or some key make-up staples from Elizabeth Arden such as her Vintage Red ceremide Ultra Lipstick and Golden Orchid eye shadow; or the to-die-for MAC Cosmetics’ Superb Glamour Daze Extra Dimension Mineralize Skinfinish that will make skin look like it has a tan year round, especially when paired with the candyfloss coloured MAC Cosmetics’ Glamour Daze Pink Fade lipglass lip gloss that epitomizes a Snow Bunny appearance.

Bath products.  Speaking of snow bunnies, LUSH Cosmetics makes a sweet Snow Fairy shower gel that smells of candy floss and vanilla.  It’s a perfect pink colour to delight any pre-teen girl, plus has surprisingly a devoted male following as well.
