I’m quite impressed with myself – to be honest, that I was able to release most of my Holiday Gift Guides by the first week of December.  Let’s all stand and give me a round of applause, shall we?  lol – All kidding aside, I’m pretty happy with myself this year because I laid out a schedule and I kept with it.  Today, I’m sharing with you a gift guide that I’m absolutely excited about, because it’s one of my favorites to do each year.  When it comes to Stocking Stuffers, I find that they can be the easiest gift to buy for anyone on your holiday gift giving list.  Why?  Well, because anything that you can fit in a Christmas stocking goes… and for me – that means I get to pick up all the little nifty products that I would love to get or receive as a gift and it can always be something fun, practical or unpractical and definitely interesting.  I have a wide list of products that fit into this list so this is going to be a long post – so without further adieu, let’s get started.

Hickies Lacing System is by far one of my favorite gifts to give for the holiday.  Each pack is small enough to fit into a stocking (of most sizes) and anyone who wears shoes with traditional laces will love these.  I own about 8 pairs myself, using them to change up my shoes from time to time and to fit my personality for the day.  Sneaker designs change but one thing that remains the same, are laces.  You’ll never have to tie a shoelace again and once you go Hickies, you’ll never go back to traditional laces.

I couldn’t mention a cool pair of laces without mentioning something along the lines of fitness and the MilestonePod is definitely a great stocking stuffer.  This little device is perfect for any runner or walker and whether you’re training for your first 5K or just getting into shape or staying active, this is the perfect gear for you.  This wearable pod not only tracks your running metrics, but it also tells you when it’s time to replace your shoes and it helps to prevent many common injuries a new running should definitely have in their toolkit.

The Pod is easy to use.  Simply clip the Pod onto your shoe once and leave it there.  The Pod collects data as soon as it senses movement.  The Pod is always ready to go and it knows when you start and stop.  There is no need to run with your phone to keep track of the data and you can sync your Pod to the MilestonePod App to view detailed performance data and gait metrics.  The Pod works everywhere, even indoors and no charging is needed.

The MilestonePod retails for $24.95 and can be purchased at: http://www.milestonepod.com/the-product/the-milestone-pod/

Handcrafted jewelry pieces make GREAT stocking stuffers.  Pura Vida Jewelry offers gorgeous handmade pieces and each bracelet is carefully handcrafted by artisans in Costa Rica.  The commitment to their craft is conveyed through the quality of their gorgeous work.  Pura Vida Charity Collection was created to give back to different causes all over the world.  Pura Vida is partnered with over 190 charities and have donated  more than $935,358 to date.  Pura Vida also donates 1% of their annual net revenue to environmental organizations worldwide.  The goal of Pura Vida is to continue to expand the charity line and support as many causes as possible.  These gorgeous bracelets (pictured above) have been favorites of mine to use on a daily basis because they are dressy, yet casual and work well with anything that I’m wearing.

Pura Vida Bracelets retail for $5.00 each or you can select a Style Pack that retails for $65+.  You can purchase your bracelet(s) from Pura Vida at: http://www.puravidabracelets.com/

When it comes to gift giving – I do my best to offer functional gifts to friends and family.  A gift that you can expect from me or a stocking stuffer for all to see would be a reusable tote.  Here in Hawaii, plastic bags are banned and unable to be given out at grocery markets so a great tote makes a perfect gift for anyone.  Urban Market Bags to the rescue.  With Urban Market bags you get 3 or 6 bags per drawstring pack which means you basically have your needs covered with bags should you need them.

Urban Market Bags come in contemporary colors that look great (I don’t know about you but I’m not a fan of that bright blue bag you get at one of those big box stores) and they are made of high quality, durable and machine washable fabric.  What I love about them is that they fold up small to fit in a handbag or cupholder of your car as well as a Christmas Stocking and they are just perfect for everyday.Urban Market bags are great to take to the soccer or in my case football field, gym or grocery store and I love that you have three or more bags to take with you and have bags that are stylish.

3 Pack Set retails for $28.00 and 6 Pack Set retails for $40.00 – Urban Market Bags can be purchased at: http://www.urbanmarketbags.com/shop

Probably one of my favorite stocking stuffers to give out this year comes from Topperfino.  If you follow me on Instagram (if not, hello -what are you waiting for? lol) you would have seen me post about Topperfino a few weeks back.  Coffee is such a huge part of our everyday lifestyles – well, in my case, it’s now cocoa and tea since I can’t drink coffee as much as I would like.  Topperfino is a great coffee innovation, a chocolate topper that not only gorgeous but delectable.

Topperfino is the perfect mix for coffee to create an unparalleled coffee art, but it’s a chocolate topper that can be enjoyed with any frothy hot chocolate or foamy drink.  These toppers make fabulous presents.

Get the Limited Edition Holidays Mix – 10 count box for $19.99 or select the design that you think would make a great gift for just $13.99 a 10 count box.  Purchase your Topperfino for yourself or a gift at: http://topperfino.com/

I have mentioned LATHER in a previous Gift Guide for Skin Care and Body Care and couldn’t possibly resist sharing them again.  LATHER has made great stocking stuffers and ornaments packaged appropriately for the holiday season.  The Soap & Candle sets ($18.00 each) make great stocking stuffers as well as the Sugar Plum Kisses Set ($15.00 each) and Vanilla Bath Fizz Combos ($18.00 each).   Each set would make a great addition to anyone’s gift collection and are packaged and ready to go for holiday gift giving.  Simply add a little bow or hang on a tree and you’re ready to go.

FAB Nails by Beauty Junkees is the perfect little size for travel and on the go, but most definitely makes a great gift for anyone’s holiday stocking.  It’s small and fits perfectly inside and it makes a wonderful gift.  FAB (File and Buff) Nail File is a 2-in-1 Set that includes the best glass nail file and a case.  The file is perfect for natural fingernails and a great nail care alternative to nail polish

This nail file is a great solution for men and women and if you can’t wear nail polish – you’ll enjoy this one.  You can keep your nails looking FAB with a high gloss finish that lasts up to four weeks.  FAB Nails crystal glass file lasts up to a year, depending on how you care for it and your use.  It’s gentle on the nails like a chamois and can be used as a buffer in a back and forth direction, sealing the keratin layers together and preventing peeling and chipping.  Unlike harsh Emery boardst hat can cause the keratin layers to shed, leaving your nails thin and sometimes peeling – FAB Nails is a great solution for a smooth, ridge free glossy finish.

This awesome nail file retails for $14.97 and can be purchased here.

I’ve been a long time fan of The Body Shop and I’m absolutely loving their new releases for the year.  Any makeup lover would absolutely adore these Down to Earth Eye Palettes that have been recently released.  These Limited Edition Eyeshadow Quads are a winter must have and are a part of The Body Shop’s Cruelty-free makeup collection.  With 100% vegetarian formulation, which contains no carmine, petrolatum, gluten or mineral oil – these gifts will make a great find for anyone that wants to do good, feel good and look good this holiday season and always.

Speaking of beauty lovers, lippies make great holiday stocking stuffers.  Having to narrow down my favorites is nearly impossible, so I figured what better product to choose than a lippy that will protect the lips during the colder months.  FarmHouse Fresh Hydrating Lip Balms have been a staple for my lips this Fall and Winter and I thought these would make great stocking stuffers.  Available in Coconut Beach and Whoopie! Cream, these lip balms are so sleek and ready to rock out any pout.

Made with jojoba oil and shea butters, these lip balms promote healing and hydration with a long-wear formula that lasts and lasts with one application.  They have a light fragrance and taste, but overall I love that they leave my lips hydrated all day long.  These lip balms are perfect for travel and on the go and will be a great gift for anyone that needs a little lip therapy.

The FarmHouse Fresh Hydrating Lip Balms retail for $15.00 and can be purchased at: http://farmhousefreshgoods.com

The perfect little nail kit for the nail lover’s Christmas Stocking would be great nail wraps or decals.  I was recently introduced to Glossique Nail Deco which makes it easy for anyone to have a gorgeous manicure at anytime.  Say goodbye to dry-time, chipping and harsh chemicals and have a wonderful manicure for those holiday parties.  I picked up a few of these to put in each of my nieces stockings this year because they are so fun and easy to use.  Glossique offers a variety of different designs and they literally can be put on in minutes at anytime.

Glossique Nail Deco Decals retail for: $15.00 and can be purchased at: https://www.glossique.com/shop

Personalized gifts make great stocking stuffers too.  Whether they are handcrafted using your own creativity or you utilize a service and put your own spin on things, I love a great personalized gift in my stocking.  This cute square compact mirror you see here is a great gift.  Retailing for $15.95 you can create your own by adding your own text and image.  I used a photo of a sunflower that I took in my garden and added fun text that I love.  The options are endless and you can personalize it with a family photo or anything you see fit.

I certainly didn’t forget about the kiddos in our lives.  Stocking Stuffers are so fun to shop for when it comes to kids because they are so happy to get fun little things that they can play with.  My sons are no exception and I love that we can easily put small and fun gifts into their stocking and they will cherish it all.  Lego Mixels are one of my favorite things to stash into a stocking each year.  Mixels are created by Lego and are similar to basic lego in that you can build different characters utilizing a set of legos to create from.  My sons love them and have quite a collection of these little guys so it’s always fun to add to their sets.

Lego Mixels can be purchased at different locations like Walmart, Target and other stores and I love that they range in price from $4.99 and up so there is a Mixels set for anyone.

The National Geographic Bug Dig Kits are something my sons love and that I love giving out as gifts.  Each set allows you to dig up 3 real bugs and kids love to uncover these perfectly preserved insect specimens (spiny spider, fortune beetle and scorpion).  Of course – there are a bunch of different bug kits online and National Geographic and Dr. Cool’s kits are our favorites.  These make great stocking stuffers or gifts and offer an educational adventure for each child that gets one.  Children will learn all about their speciments as well as many other fascinating anthropods and it becomes a cool interactive lesson with a hands-on science kit.  The bugs can be kept and inspected in all angles as the bugs are preserved in transparent acrylic for easy examination.

These fun sets retail for about $10 – $20 and can be purchased here.

Like most of my gift guides this 2016 – this one is particularly lengthy, but I wanted to ensure to provide all of you, my readers with a variety of different things to help inspire your holiday gift shopping.  Christmas is 13 days away and if you’re still out shopping, I definitely suggest checking out some of these finds.  A few things I didn’t include in my gift guide but definitely suggest are:

  • Pens or Pencils (I love getting new fun gel pens for the holiday – they are great gifts for a planner lover or student)
  • Candy Canes (I absolutely love seeing all of the different candy canes now available in stores, grab a box of canes and put a few in a stocking.  Because, everyone loves a great sweet treat)
  • Body lotion (I didn’t include this one in the list, but I love getting some new body lotion for holidays – anything sweet smelling is right for me)
  • homemade goods (I make a pie or chex mix, homemade fudge or something delectable to give to my postman, delivery guys and friends and family.  Sometimes making things from the heart are the best goods anyone will receive)

** Holiday Gift Giving Tip: Keep in mind shipping times and delivery schedule when ordering online and find out from the company prior to purchasing if it will be shipped and delivered in time for holiday gift giving.

When I was younger, my dad used to say that it was a challenge to buy a gift for the man who has everything… happy life, lots of possessions, roof over his head and it’s something that I always remember when out shopping this time of year.  But, this year – I though about it and realized that while I’m thinking of things to buy for the men in my life, my man is trying to figure out what to get me.  It’s no secret that I am a lover of all things beauty – it is what I talk about here on the blog several times a week, right?  It can be a challenge for my husband to buy “beauty related” items for me each year, so most of the time he just gives me his credit card and says… “have fun”.  But, not every one has that opportunity and sometimes shopping for a woman who loves beauty and makeup can be a daunting task.  Today, I share with you some of my favorite beauty items that I think would make anyone happy to receive.  If you are on the hunt for something for the lady in your life, this holiday gift guide may be for you.

Oh Colour Pop how I love thee.  When it comes to makeup, one of my biggest collections of cosmetic products comes from Colour Pop Cosmetics.  Whether it’s their highlighters or blushes, lipsticks or eye shadows I haven’t met a Colour Pop product I wasn’t happy to get.  With Colour Pop’s release of the Hello Kitty Collection  I basically got Colour Pop and Hello Kitty in one little selection and both are such loves I couldn’t contain the happy.  Anything from Colour Pop would make a great gift and the quads they have available in a wide variety of shades would make any beauty lover happy.  If I had to pick, I definitely suggest getting the shadows – with over 120 shadows myself, trust me when I say – I love them.

Colour Pop – $5.00 to $40.00 (depending on what you purchase) http://www.colourpop.com

Lengthy Fiber Mascara ($16.00), Endless Silky Eye Pencil ($12.00), Endless Brow Gel Pencil ($11.00) and Shea Butter Lip Balm ($8.00) would make a perfect gift combined together and wrapped in a cute makeup bag.  For the woman that loves a great day look that she can wear to work or out running errands.

One of my favorite makeup brush brands has released a gorgeous Contour Palette.  Beauty Junkees, a brand I’ve talked about numerous times has recently rolled out some new goodies in their line.  Besides their makeup brushes and accessories, Beauty Junkees has recently released a Contour Palette that is refillable and perfect for any makeup lover.  The Contour & Highlighting Palette makes enhancing your beauty and minimizing facial features a breeze.  You get powder contour shades to add dimension and to define your cheekbones, jaw, forehead and nose as well as highlighting shades that will lift, brighten and give you a soft radiant glow.  This palette is perfect for every day use and I love that the palette is not only refillable, it’s magnetic.  With 5 silky soft pressed matte powders to compliment a beauty lovers complete look.

Contouring shades include:  Fawn, Java and Truffle  Highlighting shades include:  Banana, Vanilla and Sand.  This palette is great for most skin tones and you can either use a light hand or build up the powders to your desired intensity.  Did I also mention you could use this palette as eye shadow shades or even a brow definer.  The options are absolutely endless.

Beauty Junkees has also won me over with their fab 5 piece Pro Contouring & Highlighting Kit.  I have raved about Beauty Junkees brushes before and last year I even featured a set in a Holiday Gift Guide.  This year is no exception and I’m so excited to bring you this kit of brushes for the makeup lover.  This brush set includes the Pro Sculptor Brush, Pro Detailer Brush, Pro Duo Fiber Brush, Pro Highlighter Brush, Pro Contouring Makeup Brush and a great makeup brush case for storage or travel.  Each brush comes with high density synthetic taklon bristles and are vegan friendly.  With a solid wood handle, double crimped copper ferrule and bristles that do not shed – you or the makeup lover in your life will have brushes that work with creams, liquids, minerals and powders.

Considering the cost of one highlight or contouring brush from popular cosmetic brands, this set includes everything you or your loved one needs to literally have that highlight and contour ON FLEEK.  I am absolutely in love with this brush set and haven’t stopped using these brushes since I got my hands on them.  After several washes the bristles have held together nicely, the brushes pick up my liquid, cream and powder products with ease and that sponge… YAAASSSS – it’s amazing and so soft.

This 5 pc Pro Contouring & Highlighting Kit retails for $24.97 and can be purchased at: https://shop.beautyjunkees.com/products/5-piece-pro-contouring-highlighting-kit

Speaking of soft sponges, I’m absolutely loving the sponge set from Beauty Junkees as well.  It’s hard to find a good cosmetic sponge that is similar to the expensive name brand without sacrificing quality.  For less than the price of one highend brand makeup sponge, you get four awesome sponges to create your work of art.  This 4 piece Pro Beauty Sponge Set from Beauty Junkees includes the Pink Teardrop (the traditional blender shape used for all over face application), the Purple Pear (similar to the Pink Teardrop with an improved ergonomic shape that allows for an optimal grip), Green Oval (for the makeup perfectionist with dual tips for precise concealing and cleaning up of makeup errors), and the Blue Sculptor (a flat head sponge best used for pressing on foundation for heavier coverage, using a stippling effect to create an airbrushed look).  Each of the sponges work best when damp but can be used wet or dry.  They are latex free, non-allergenic and works with all kinds of makeup from creams to liquids to minerals and powders.  They are easy to wash and reusable – a simple mild soap or baby shampoo will get it clean and ready for it’s next use.

Over the years I have tried MANY different types of cosmetic sponges and as I mentioned above, while some are quite affordable, that doesn’t mean they are good quality.  The Beauty Junkees cosmetic and beauty sponges feel and work like professional grade sponges.  They are soft and work well to blend the product, but doesn’t soak the product up so that you are wasting your makeup.  The blend well and effortlessly, no matter the sponge you decide to use at any given time.  Like I said, the cost of this 4 pack is cheaper than that of a Beauty Blender – one Beauty Blender, so it’s worth checking out for yourself.

The 4 Piece Pro Beauty Sponge Set retails for $14.97 and can be purchased at: https://shop.beautyjunkees.com/products/flawless-beauty-makeup-blender-sponges-sample-pack

Of course, a great gift for any beauty lover is something that they can carry their beauty goods in and a Cosmetics & Jewelry Folio is a great solution for that.  Instead of packing all of your beauty necessities in separate bags for travel or storage, the Cosmetics and Jewelry Folio will have you organized and ready to go.  The Folio includes a built-in zipper compartment, a detachable zipper pouch and numerous elastic pockets to hold all your cosmetics, makeup and jewelry.

The Folio folds in half, making it easier to pack and giving it a sleeker more flatter profile than most cosmetic bags.  I love that it’s made with 500 denure polyester with a grew mesh lined interior to help protect your products when in transit.  You also get a sturdy strap for easy transport.  Once at your destination or using at home, you can hang the Folio with it’s rubber-tipped metal hanger over a knob, rod or hook.  It’s the perfect little vanity for on the go.

Face masks and cleansers make wonderful gifts for the beauty lover.  I’ve included a few that I’ve tried and enjoy in my list here but the options are endless and you can search Honeygirl’s World for different masks that I’ve reviewed over the years.  Whether it is affordable or luxury – a great face mask makes for a wonderful gift.

Yes to Coconut Hydrate & Restore Paper Mask ($3.00 each), Feather & Bone Face Gems ($15.00 for 60 tablets), Valentia Detoxifying Clay Mask ($25.00), Borghese Fango Active Mud Mask for Face and Body ($40 – $72.50), Freeman Feeling Beautiful Travel Size Face Masks ($1.99 – $3.99), Derma E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask ($19.50), Miss Spa Assorted Face Masks ($2.99 – $3.99)

Each of these face masks can be found at their respected websites, Ulta Beauty or stores like Target and Walmart.  They range in price and need but make great stocking stuffers and fun gifts for any beauty lover.

Beauty is not just about makeup so I wanted to be sure that I included products that also catered to the skin care lover.  I do have a Holiday Gift Guide on the site aimed specifically towards skin and body care (which you can find here), but these products are those that go hand and hand with makeup too.  The Trophy Skin RejuvadermMD is a Professional Grade Home Microdermabrasion System.  I’m talked about Trophy Skin products before as the RejuvaliteMD happens to be one of my FAVORITE skin care devices.  I was very ecstatic to try the RejuvadermMD and have been loving it since getting my hands on it.

The RejuvadermMD offers you smoother and more radiant skin anywhere and anytime.  With salon-quality microdermabrasion you can get soft, clear, glowing skin on the go.  This unit is travel friendly and portable.  It’s a lightweight and uses a high tech combo of diamond exfoliation and gentle suction to buff away dead skin cells, revealing the radiant, glowing skin that sits just below the surface.  The RejuvadermMD safely and effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines, age spots, sun damage and mild scarring at a fraction of the cost of in-office treatments.

The RejuvadermMD retails for $170.57 and can be purchased at: https://trophyskin.com/products/rejuvadermmd

Facial cleansing tools are an important part of my skin care and beauty routine, so I knew I just had to include my favorites in this post.  The Michael Todd Soniclear Elite has been a favorite device of mine over the last two years and I love that you can purchase a variety of attachments.  I love pairing my Soniclear with the Luxe Cashmere brush head for my sensitive skin and I totally dig that the Soniclear has a selection of designs and colors to choose from.  I have written about the Soniclear Elite on my site before so you can get a full review of this product here on the site.

Soniclear Elite retails for:  $149.00 and can be purchased at:  http://www.michaeltoddbeauty.com/soniclear-elite/  *Accessories can also be purchased on the site.

Another facial cleansing tool that has been a favorite of mine is my Foreo Luna.  Since getting my original Luna, Foreo has made many improvements to their original device and has released the Luna 2, Luna Mini 2, Luna Go and IRIS.  The brush is revolutionary and designed to help with facial cleansing and anti-aging – giving you a complete and personalized cleansing.  I LOVE that the LUNA 2 is now available in four specialized brush types for tailor-made skin care and I look forward to picking up the Sensitive Skin (purple) cleansing tool when my current Luna is ready to be retired.  The next-generation Luna 2 facial cleansing brush utilizes up to 2x the T-Sonic power to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, unclog pores of makeup residue and remove up to 99.5% of dirt and oil.  This brush helps to improve the absorption of your favorite skin care products while offering you a great cleanse each and every time.

The Foreo Luna 2 retails for $199.00 and can be purchased at: https://www.foreo.com/

The Veet Infini Silk Permanent Hair Reduction device is the breakthrough in permanent hair reduction at home.  It offers state of the art technology with salon-quality results in the comfort of your own home.  Each Veet Infini Silk device is constructed with advanced safety features, including a skin color sensor and a recessed lamp surface with a skin surface contact sensor built in to prevent eye injury.  It’s a neat device that really takes permanent hair reduction to new heights.  Most people start seeing results after 4-5 treatments and can achieve permanent hair reduction after about 10 treatments with the units.

The Veet Infini’Silk Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System retails for about $130.00 and can be purchased here.

Of course – there are a lot of different gift items that you can give to the beauty lover in your life and these are just a few that I enjoy and though I would share with all of you.  Remember that Christmas is about love and time together and the gifts are just icing and a cherry on top.
