HIGH FIVE: STOCKING STUFFERS
Five ways to rock your socks this holiday season.
They say good things come in small packages, and here at Sephora, we couldn’t agree more. Not to toot our own horn, but our pocket-sized beauties make the best (and easiest!) stocking stuffers for everyone on your gift list. Below, we list a few suggestions for filling your chimney-hung grab bags with care. KELLEY HOFFMAN
Keep your eye out for gifts that can be easily broken apart. These save time and brainpower—and they’re easy on the wallet, too. While any set can be divided up, we highly suggest kits with individually wrapped items for extra gifting finesse.
Benefit Cosmetics 3 Scoops O’ Sexy
Grab this one set to easily dole out three gifts of matching lip balms and tints. Or, you know, keep one for yourself.
Ciate Tree Trinket
Kill two birds with one stone with this festive nail polish duo. Each comes encased inside a separate clear ornament.
A small gift can still make an impact. While we can’t all gift tickets to Hawaii, we can give the dream of a beach-y escape to anyone who’s little down on winter. And hey, it beats a sun lamp.

Gift mermaid-worthy tresses for the girl who wants to look like she spent all day at the beach. Not required: actually going to the ocean.
Consider daring your giftee to oil. Oils have been in the beauty game since the beginning of time, yet they’ve recently experienced a resurgence of popularity. If she loves natural beauty, spoil her with this small luxury.

This face oil-in-an-ornament nourishes like whoa. She’ll like its unique scent, but she’ll love its hydrating powers.

For the girl who loves subtle glamour, consider this set that includes a maracuja oil, brightening eye treatment, and limited-edition cheek stain. These small wonders will have your giftee looking refreshed and radiant.
The end of December might mean the end of gift giving, but it doesn’t mean the end of holiday parties. Gift your girl who plans to get gussied up for New Year’s Eve.

With eight eyeshadows, four blush shades, a universal highlighter, and a large mirror, this sleek palette is your party clutch’s BFF for sparkly events that last ‘til midnight—and then some.
beautyblender the original beautyblender®
This little gift comes with a lot of innovation. The egg-shaped complexion sponge is a secret of make up artists around the world, and will take your giftee’s flawless face to the next level.
Not quite sure of your giftee’s taste? Look for two-in-one gifts—they at least give you a second chance for nailing her style. And after all, when it comes to stocking stuffers, the more the merrier!
