It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! So here's the deal, throughout the month of December I will be posting on a holiday related topic every 5 days until Christmas! These of course will involve some wish-lists, some OOTD's, holiday gift ideas, and of course in the spirit of the giving season I will be offering a giveaway!
So as the title implies, today's holiday topic is stocking stuffers! I've been doing some research with the holiday coming up and have comprised a list of 16 great items perfect for your girl squad, or your very fashionable aunt. And of course, though it is the thought that counts, I can't stand giving useless gifts! So the unique thing about these stocking stuffers is, they are all 100% useful and/or wearable. Now, let's get to it!
1. A Cute Pair of Sunnies
The reason sunnies have made this list is because I feel everyone can use a cool fashionable pair of sunglasses! I mean they can be fun, mysterious, and even iconic. And if there is one thing we learned from Jackie O. it's fabulous sunglasses are a must.
Love the ones you see above for the Jackie O. you know? You can get them here for $9.99 at Versona.
2. Amika Spoil My Hair Kit
One of my all time favorite hair kits, and honestly the only hair care products I use! The reason the Amika Spoil My Hair Kit is such a great gift is because this shampoo, conditioner, leave in cream, and oil quartet do wonders for your hair! It's also sulfate free meaning it is also safe for color treated hair. Have that cousin in your family with blue hair? You can get the kit for them here for $39 at Birchbox.
3. Clinique 3 Step Facial Cleanse
I'm pretty sure we all have to agree that the gift of clear, glowing, and healthy skin is a gift we would all like to recieve. That's why I've put Clinique's 3 step skin care routine on this list. This treatment is perfect for ALL skin types making it a perfect little present for someone's stocking. Want to give the gift of a good skin care line? You can pick up the three step kit for $45.50 at Sephora.

I think a gift anyone can appreciate is the gift of warm hands! And what better way to do that than an adorable new set of gloves? You can find these pretty pink ones and many more over at Amazon prices may vary but these specific ones are $30.
12. Compact Mirror
Nothing beats having a compact mirror when having to do your makeup in the go. (The struggle of being a busy blogger is real isn't it?) It's even better when the compact's message tells you what to need to hear! That's why I chose this wise little mirror by Kate Spade as one of my stocking stuffers. You can get this compact mirror for $30 as a treat for yourself over at Kate Spade.
