Disclosure: I have received some of the following products from the companies involved to try here at home. The opinions expressed in this post are based on my true and honest experience with the product and I highly recommend the items suggested below.
It’s that time of year. The time when I sit back, feeling very smug about how prepared I am for the holidays. That is, of course, until I panic, realizing that I haven’t purchased anything for the stockings! Why oh why do I always leave the stocking stuffers for the end?
The answer to that is quite simple. I find that they can be the most challenging gifts of all. I still want them to be special, but you’re working with a limited amount of space. Think that’s impossible? It’s not. These beauty stocking stuffer ideas are PERFECT for anyone on your list who loves a little bit of pampering.
Beauty Stocking Stuffer Ideas
I have some friends and family members who are pretty much interested in any beauty products. They buy them all! Me? I’m a little bit fussier. That’s why when I say the suggestions below were all tried and tested, you can know that they passed my somewhat, ummm let’s call it particular, standards.
Beauté Pacifique sent me this product recently to try out for myself and all I can say is WOW. I have incredibly dry skin that gets even worse in the winter. I have asked over and over again on social media for suggestions on products to use and thought I had pretty much tried them all. None of them worked well for me.
In just a short time, this has already started making a difference that I can see and feel for my skin. It recovers lost moisture and features moisture-retaining ingredients to hold hydration while forming a water-retaining barrier and includes Vitamin A to reduce fine lines.
You know, I don’t want to fuss a lot with my skin. I DO want it to be soft and clean though. The OctoVie skincare brush gives me an amazing at-home spa experience by helping to improve circulation, exfoliate dead skin cells, deeply cleanse my pores, improve tone and texture, and even enhance the absorption of my moisturizer, makeup, and masks.
The OctoVie FACE Mini is the clear version. It allows you to see the impurities and makeup being removed from your skin upon use! (I can’t be the only one who feels cleaner and more refreshed seeing all of that leave my skin). It’s the perfect size for popping into a stocking!

Invisibobble Traceless Hair Rings –
I have incredibly thick hair. It’s so thick in fact, that it doesn’t really like to stay in place when I try to put it into ponytails or messy buns. If I managed to get them to stay, it was painful and they were hard to remove, leaving behind those tell-tale bumps.
These completely solved that issue! They’re so comfortable to wear, remove easily (without ripping out my hair!), and stay in place. I’m even able to use them to hold a simple messy bun in place without any hair pins at all. I’ve never been able to accomplish that before.
Goody Spiral Hair Pins –
These were life-changing for me. I like to pop my hair up into a bun, but again, with my thick hair, it was nearly impossible to get it to hold in place. If I want a super quick messy bun (that will stay for several hours), the Invisibobbles work just fine.
But when I want a longer lasting bun, or one that is a little bit neater, these spiral hair pins have been an amazing addition to my beauty bag. They are so easy to use – did I mention that when it comes to beauty, I’m a total klutz? I have none of that natural proficiency for makeup and hair care. Yet, with these pins, I can easily put my hair up into a neat bun quickly and easily.
Schick Intuition Razor
When I was younger, I could literally grab any razor off the shelf and use it for shaving my legs with no problem. Sigh. Not anymore! My skin is far too sensitive for that these days.
After trying all the major brands, this is the one that works beautifully for me. The built in solid moisturizer softens and smooths my skin as I shave. No more post-shave dried out skin, no more nicks and cuts, and I get a nice, close shave.
My daughter always gets excited when she sees Bonne Bell Lip Smackers in her Christmas stocking. As for me, I change mine up seasonally. In the winter, I reach for O’Keefe’s Lip Repair when my lips are at their worst or when heading outside. If they are under control, I reach for Nivea Milk and Honey Lip Balm. The rest of the year, I get great results from EOS Lip Balms.

Various Skin Masks
You might be getting the impression as you read through this list, that I like masks. You would be correct! These masks are ones that I have used and enjoyed. They feel soothing and they produce great results for my dry, sensitive skin.
I’ve also chosen all of these masks because they’re so simple and yet, effective to use. Most of them are infused sheets that are easy to apply to the chosen part of your skin. I see and feel visible results from using these products.

Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler from drybar
My hair is thick and dry and prone to be curly/wavy. You could also read that last part as prone to be frizzy. This means it tangles very easily. This detangler makes my hair feel softer and smoother and ready to blow dry and style without a ton of tangles.
Inflatable Bath Pillow
Believe me, if there’s anyone on your list who just loves taking baths, they’re going to love receiving an inflatable bath pillow. When I soak in the tub, I want to be able to lie back and really relax. A rolled up towel just doesn’t cut it for me. It always ends up soaking wet and I simply don’t want to deal with that when I’m all cozy getting out of the bath.
Inflatable bath pillows don’t take up much space and they’re comfortable to use. You can even easily pack them to take with you when traveling.
No Fog Shaving Mirror
Not just for the men on your list, I like to use one of these for in bath/after shower facial care. Because it stays fog free, I can still apply face masks with ease.
Dry Skin Brush
I love the OctoVie Skincare Brush for my face and neck area, but dry brushing my legs and arms with a natural bristle brush specifically designed for this purpose really feels good. It helps stimulate circulation and exfoliates dry skin.
I love the overall invigorating feeling that I get from using this. If I’m still dragging first thing in the morning or need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, this is the perfect way to get me going while making my skin better at the same time.
This was a game-changer for me. It feels great when I use it on my head with the added bonus of increasing blood flow and soothing/exfoliating my dry scalp.
Folding Hair Brush
I travel quite a bit. Even when not actually on a trip, I’m still out and about enough that I want to have a brush handy in my purse. Regular brushes take up too much space and all the lint and other bits gather up in the bristles. These folding brushes solve both problems and make a great addition to any stocking.
There you go! Lots of great (some a little more out of the box too!) ideas for filling the stocking of any beauty lover on your list. Have you finished all of your holiday shopping yet?
