Christmas is Coming: Last minute gifts, stocking stuffers, and shipping cut-offs, oh my!
As I’m sure many of you can relate, this month has been crazy busy. Filled with to-do lists, my December days have been flying by. Christmas is only a week away and I’m sure I’m not alone seeking last minute stocking stuffers and gifts.
While I try to purchase cute stocking stuffers throughout the month, I still end up needing a few gifts last minute. Often times the best gifts come in small packages. From staple jewelry pieces to enchanting fragrances, this list of stocking stuffers/last minute items are sure to please! Plus, they won’t break the bank because they are all under $50! Read on for the best last minute stocking stuffers, and the shipping cut-offs to be aware of!
Last Minute Stocking Stuffers
I’m obsessed with Kate Somerville’s products and this exfoliating cleanser is a must-try! This blush, highlight and contour kit from bareMinerals would be perfect for your beauty-obsessed sister! Matte lipsticks are beautiful this time of year, and this one from Dolce & Gabbana is no exception. Get your organized cousin a stylish planner to start prepping for the new year. And maybe a cute business card holder for your friend who just got a business promotion! One of my favorite gifts to receive is always a candle, and this winter spruce one will have your place smelling like the holidays throughout the cold-weather months!
