1. Stroke of Luck Brush Set

This beautiful brush set is something I’ve had my eyes on for a while. All my makeup brushes are way to old, and I know some of you ladies also have old makeup brushes too. It’s time for an upgrade. This gorgeous brush set is very old Hollywood glamour and they are from one of the best brands!


2. Glamorous Stud Earrings

Dazzle this holiday season with glamorous but inexpensive stud earrings. These sparkly studs make a great gift and come in a variety of colors, but I do love the emerald version. There’s something super festive about remold and ruby in jewelry. These make a great gift for a loved one or self gift.


3. Retro Style Electric Kettle

These cold winter days and nights call for warm cups of tea, coffee, and hot chocolate. Heating up a cup of water in a microwave is just disgusting, isn’t it? And those old kettles everyone has can take a while to heat up. Why not give the gift of a lovely electric kettle? All it takes is a plug in and voila! A hot cup of water ready for a cozy drink.


4. Soft and Cozy Slippers

Or why not give the gift of cozy slippers? These come in a multitude of colors, and I don’t know about you, but I like slipper varieties! I have about 3 pairs right now on rotation depending on the season. But I don’t have really great winter slippers. You know…the kind that just gulf up your feet like these do.


5. Gingerbread Extra Spicy Eyeshadow Palette

The hottest eyeshadow palette of the season is always from Too Faced. This year they released two new gingerbread palettes and the extra spicy one is one of the best! The pigmentation is incredible – it actually sticks to the brush and onto the eye. The colors are very beautiful and perfect for any holiday makeup look – especially with NYE coming up.


6. Bow Scarf Scrunchies

For just $15, these chic bow scarf scrunchies are a perfect stocking stuffer for any lady! Scarf scrunchies are very in right now and these will be excellent in the coming months for any occasion, especially vacations! I can see the black or cheetah print scrunchy would be good for a valentines date or even as far as easter dinner!


7. Pure Silk Sleep Mask

Our regular bed sheets, pillow cases, and sleep masks can cause wrinkles. Silk is one of the best materials to sleep on to prevent wrinkles, bacteria build up, and blemishes. This silk sleep mask is perfect for the pampered lady who likes her beauty sleep. This would make a great stocking stuffer for anyone.


8. Wool Blend Beret

This is a great gift under $30 and comes in many different colors. I own the one in red and wear it all the time (you can see it in some of my recent Instagram posts). This blush pink color is a great choice as well. I always love how a beret can add a feminine touch to any outfit.


9. Mini Blush Purse

Which gal doesn’t love a new pink purse? I’m all about mini purses this year. I don’t have the space for big purses or even medium sized ones, so mini purses are my go to for adventures in the city and beyond. This gorgeous blush top handle purse is the perfect gift or self gift for purse loving ladies


10. Rouje Lip Shine Balm

The perfect francophile gift…this Rouje Lip Shine Balm is under $20 and one of the “it” french brands of the year. You can find all the famous french women, like Jeanne Damas wearing Rouje! Lots of different shades and such an excellent product for women who like their makeup routine to be minimal but sophisticated.


11. Ray Ban Sunglasses

For the classic and vintage inspired lady, Ray Ban sunglasses are one of the best gifts to give! I personally want a pair of these classic inspired sunnies. They will be perfect for the summer months everyone is looking forward to. There’s something just so neat about these sunnies!
