Stocking Stuffers for her!
Easy, right? Sort of, but one of the hardest parts of stuffing a stocking is not getting carried away with the budget and spending a fortune! Then you’re left with not so much to work with when it comes to an actual gift… it can be tough to pull off! So I’ve searched high and low to bring you some great stocking stuffers us ladies would love to receive that won’t break your bank!
Let’s Start with the Obvious: Makeup!
e.l.f. Cosmetics and Coastal Scents both sell great stuff for not a lot of money for the makeup fan in your life! e.l.f. is now available at Real Canadian Superstore in limited selections – so pick up a couple lipsticks like these for less than $4 each, or a blush quad like this one for $6 ($8 CAD at the Real Canadian Superstore)! These are great quality despite the low price tag and will give your makeup loving lady something new to play with!
Coastal Scents is is available only online but have eyeshadow pots starting at $2 USD. These have really great reviews and are comparable to much higher end products.
If you’re looking for something that is available everywhere and a real crowd pleaser, look no further than the essence line of cosmetics from Shoppers’ Drug Mart. Pick up a couple of the Gel Nail Polishes in a few fun festive shades! These little guys are about $2.50 a piece so getting a couple is totally an option! Keep your eyes peeled for their Limited Edition line of beauty goodies called “Mountain Calling” everything from blush to eye liners to cozy looking socks!
If you have access to a Sally Beauty Supply – I have to tell you that they sell a ton of Sally Girl tiny little nail polishes for about $1.75 each! They’re tiny and cute and come in lots of playful colours! Lots more to check out here: Sallybeautysupply.com
Let’s Talk About the Cozy, Warm Things!
Every girl loves something warm and cozy! How about a cute pair of mittens from the Bay? Or a pair of cozy socks from Forever 21? Or a cute new toque and scarf! Pretty much anything at Chapters Indigo will be a winner, from their extra soft throws to the super comfy looking reading socks!
So here is the thing – not every girl wants expensive jewellery. Some of us would just really like something that reflects our personality, thats fun and spunky and would be a cute little something to rock on a night out or to shake up the everyday back and forth to work and school look. Try out Forever 21’s jewellery selection or try shopmissa.com’s jewellery section – everything is just $1.00!
And Everything Else!
The overall best tip to giving a great gift, even if it’s something small -is to make it meaningful. So think about the person you’re buying for, consider their hobbies and interests and go from there.
