I have to admit, I love buying stocking stuffers the best so I was excited to do this this Top 10 Stocking Stuffer post. Miniatures are the best–there’s just something about a tiny version of the real thing that’s appealing. I try to mix a little bit of tradition into my stockings–the person’s favorite candy, some practical things (here’s where the mini’s come in) like travel size shampoo, conditioner, perfume/cologne samples, etc. and I try to keep the each item at $25 or less. Here is my beauty stocking stuffer list for this year. Make sure to see the rest of our awesome bloggers lists too: I’m sure you’ll get some inspiration!

Another great gift worth mentioning is the IPSY bag! In February of next week I will have been with IPSY for a full year, the longest I have lasted with a beauty subscription, and I have not been disappointed! Sure some months are better than others, but I have ALWAYS gotten my $10 worth and more! November’s bag (reviewed here) had a value of $77!! Ipsy is also one of the few subscription bags that actually reads your profile and chooses the appropriate colors and items. A gift of a year’s worth of IPSY would make any girl happy!
