  • The 2015 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE | Under $25 & Stocking Stuffers

    Under $25 Gift Guide, Too Faced, First Aid Beauty, Jack Black, Kevyn Aucoin, Becca, Loccitane, Tangel Teezer, Formula X
    Welcome to Gift Guide Week! All week long I am going to have cherry picked gifting ideas for you that I’ve personally tried and tested and can vouch for their incredible awesomeness. Today I am jumping in with the Under $25 range as well as Stocking Stuffers. Whether it’s for a secret gift exchange at work, or a token gift for a friend or just an extra to add to an existing present, I’ve got some great ideas for you!

    Under $25 Gift Guide, Too Faced, First Aid Beauty, Jack Black, Kevyn Aucoin, Becca, Loccitane, Tangel Teezer, Formula X

    The Kevyn Aucoin Books – Making Faces, and Face Forward are not only beautiful coffee table books, but are the perfect gift to give someone regardless if they are new to makeup, or a true makeup lover. I purchased these for myself almost 15 years ago now, and still think they are full of timeless tips and stunning makeup on both celebs and everyday folk like you and I.

    Becca Glow on the Go Kit – Perfect for that person in your life that loves a little shimmer! This kit has two minis of the brand classic Opal Shimmering Skin Perfector (liquid and pressed powder versions)

    Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm – My love for this balm is well documented here on the blog so I just leave you with this: get this for everyone in your life, especially someone you might like to kiss at some point, their lips (and yours!) will thank you!

    First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream – If you have anyone who suffers from dry skin, or live in a super harsh winter climate, this is the perfect thing to stuff a stocking with this year. The ultra hydrating cream sinks in beautifully, and the brand is paraben, colorant and alcohol free.

    Formula X Transformers – These stunning glitter laced polishes are the perfect little gift for the girly girl in your life. Unlike some glitters, these actually translate to the nail the way they look in the bottle and wear beautifully. Plus there is everything from wild and out there, to muted and elegant!

    Tangle Teezer Compact Styler – For the long haired lovelies in your life, the person who struggles with knots or hair loss, your five year old niece who wont let anyone brush her hair or even your pup. Yep, I’ve used my Tangle Teezer in all these situations (No joke it brushed out the knots in the dogs tail, and was the only thing my niece would let near her head!) I particularly like the compact version as it comes with a lid that snaps on and keeps things from bending when travelling, as well as it fits my small hands better.

    Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Ornament – I won’t get into the name – you can decide that one yourself – but these is a lovely mascara and the perfect little stocking stuffer or present  topper. Get it for that Aunt who always tells inappropriate jokes, your sister or BFF. They’ll both chuckle and love the lash results.

    L’Occitane Shower Oil – This is such a lovely gift to give your manager, Mum, or someone who’s stressed out and could use a little pampering. This lush oil is gorgeously hydrating and actually lathers in the shower. It’s something that adds a little luxury to life and is a nice gift to someone who wouldn’t normally spend the $$ on themselves.

    Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit – What a perfect little gift for the travel bug or loveable klutz in your life! This purse/car glove box friendly kit has everything you might need in a hot minute, like bandaids, floss, needle and thread, breath spray and more.

    I hope you liked this first installment of the 2015 Holiday Gift Guide! Let me know what your favourite under $25 gifts are in the comments below. Stay tuned for the Under $50 edit next!
