This year I decided to create a few different gift guides that are a little more specific to individual needs! So for the first one, I thought I would show you some of my favourite beauty products that I think would be great gifts or stocking stuffers.

Quo by Orly 12 Days of Colorful Healthy Nails

I love the idea of a beauty advent calendar! I think it is so cute and clever, and makes the gift even more fun than it already is. If you are giving this as a gift on Christmas Day, the recipient can start their 12 days in the New Year! Quo also offers several other “12 Days of…” beauty calendars available at Shoppers Drugmart.

Quo Ready Set Travel Brush Set

The one thing I always find myself deciding when I am going away overnight is whether or not to bring all of my makeup brushes with me. When I discovered this travel set, I was SOLD! It is super cute, perfect for your basic brush needs, and easy to travel with! Win, win, WIN!

Hard Candy Fizz Smoothie & Bath Oils

I couldn’t pass this up – it is such an adorable gift set for any bath-lover on your list! Not to mention that the fizz balls smell ah-mazing and they aren’t nearly as expensive as some of the other bath bombs out there. The bath oils come in packs of 3 and are only $3!! Adorable stocking stuffer or as part of a larger gift for a little girl on your list! I think my nieces will love these! Both of these Hard Candy products are available at select Walmart stores.

Urban Decay Naked Palette

If you follow my Instagram stories, you would have seen that I just purchased this palette (my first Urban Decay palette ever!!) and I have been loving it lately! I am playing around with different looks and love how pigmented the colours are. The perfect gift for the make-up lover on your list!

Joe Fresh Gold Earrings

These beautiful earrings were from a pack of 6 pairs of earrings from Joe Fresh (via Shoppers Drugmart) that are perfect for the holiday season!

Pandora Teardrop Silhouette Ring

Although this isn’t exactly a stocking stuffer, it is a beautiful piece of jewelry that won’t completely break the bank. Coming in under $100, this beautiful piece is a great addition to any woman’s collection! (I generally don’t wear rings other than my wedding/engagement rings, but I love this one and wear it a lot!)

Essie Gel Couture Polish

If you know me at all, you know that I love doing my nails. Whether it’s going to the salon or doing them myself, it is something I find both fun and relaxing! So when Essie launched their gel couture line, I had to try it! I love that it gives me a salon-finished look and stays on longer than regular polish, but doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg to do!

Marcelle Revival+ Line

When I received these products as a PR gift to try, my Mom was here visiting. As soon as she saw the box she said, “45+! That’s me!” In other words, “You don’t need those, Kristin, but I do, so can I have them????” 😉 If you have any 45 plus-ers in your life, these anti-aging products might be a great gift for them! Although I haven’t tried every part of the line, I know that I love Marcelle products and wouldn’t hesitate to gift these to my Mom for Christmas (and the complete line is on sale right now for under $100!)

Avène PhysioLift Eyes & Cold Cream

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I am always about trying products that will help lighten dark circles, decrease puffiness, and eliminate wrinkles around my eyes! I also love this cold cream which I keep in my purse for on-the-go! My hands get so dry in the winter, and I am constantly putting on cream. Often I feel like the hand creams I use don’t do very much good, but I can say that I truly love this one! Avène is a renowned company that dermatologists recommend, and that says a lot about it!

KISS Lashes

I don’t often wear fake eyelashes, but when I do I use KISS products and really love them! They are easy to apply, stay on well, but are also easy to remove before bed.

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

I am a big fan of Origins products, which I was just introduced to this year. You have heard me rave about their eye brightening cream (which I still use on the daily!) but I have recently been using this mask and loving the results. It leaves my face feeling cleansed and so incredibly soft.

Dove Dry Spray

Definitely a stocking stuffer, but had to include it on my list because it has really wow’d me! I have never been a fan of spray-on deodorant, but for some reason when I tried this I immediately loved it! I find it easy to use, quick-drying, good-smelling, and invisible.

I can’t believe I am posting about Christmas already… Where has the year gone!? Stay tuned for more gift guides coming your way in the next week, and be sure to follow me on Instagram for some holiday giveaways coming soon!
