When it comes to stocking stuffers for Christmas, it can be hard to find fun yet inexpensive gifts for your loved ones that are nicer than a boring pair of socks! But for the beauty lover, there are many affordable skincare, makeup, nail, and bath & body gifts that your recipient will be sure to love.
Today I’ve compiled a list of beauty products, tools, and treatments that are exactly that: a treat. As a bonus, most of these gifts can be found on Amazon with Prime delivery. So if you find yourself in need of a few last-minute stocking stuffers and don’t have the time to go shopping, you can order late and still receive them in time for the big day. Here are my stocking stuffer ideas for the beauty lover:

What a great idea! Combining three single-use masks into one affordable kit! You can choose from either Yes To Triple Masking Kit, Calm, Detox, Vit C Glow-Boosting or Yes To Triple Masking Kit, Coconut, Charcoal, and Superblueberries. Each set of three is sold separately.
The Calm, Detox, Vit C Glow-Boosting Mask Kit includes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask, Cucumber Calming Mud Mask, and Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow Boosting Mud Mask.
The Coconut, Charcoal and Superblueberries Mask Kit includes Detox Charcoal Mud Mask, Coconut Ultra Hydrating Mud Mask, and Recharging BlueBerries Mud Mask.
The nice part about these masks is that you can target the treatment to your skin concerns by using one, two or all three masks on different areas of your face for 10 minutes. Let them go to work on hydrating, detoxing, calming and recharging your skin. Even better, these masks are made with 95% natural ingredients. Brilliant.
Pre de Provence Artisanal French Bar Soaps were some of the best-selling soaps at my bath & body shop years ago. These French soaps are enriched with shea butter, produce a rich and creamy lather and they LAST! They last longer than some handmade soaps due to the fact that they are triple-milled to create smooth, hard and uniform bars.
These soaps come in a nice variety of scents that are not too strong but just right. A few of the best-selling scents from my shop were Linden, Honey Almond, Milk, and Lavender, to name a few.
Real Techniques Flawless Base Set includes four brushes for a flawless base. The Detailer Brush works on concealing imperfections. The Buffing Brush is used to apply foundation and loose or pressed powder. The Contour Brush is perfect for highlighting and contouring above and below the cheekbones. The Square Foundation Brush has densely packed bristles to apply liquid foundation.
As a bonus, a brush cup is included to keep your brushes organized on your countertop.
Essie has a gorgeous selection of holiday/winter nail colors out for 2019. All nail polishes in the collection have a glittery finish. The polishes apply evenly and quickly for a shiny smooth finish.
Choose from golden Caught on Tape above, or their other beautiful colors: pine green Under Wraps, sapphire blue Tied and Blue, cool-toned silver Making Spirits Bright, blue-toned red Knotty or Nice, or cool winter white Let It Bow.
This stocking stuffer may not be the most glamorous, but it’s the best makeup brush cleaner that I’ve tried. I’ve purchased Eco Tools Makeup Brush Cleaner many times, as it makes quick work of makeup on brushes, applicators, and sponges without leaving any oily build up on your tools.
Simply pour some brush cleaner in your palm and then swirl the makeup brush or sponge in the liquid. Work up a lather and then run under warm water to rinse. Once the water is running clear, squeeze out the excess water, reshape the tool and then lay flat to dry.
It works much better than plain soap or liquid soap and is so much gentler on your brushes. It’s inexpensive and gets the job done! Paraben-, phthalate-, cruelty- & petroleum-free.
This nail whitening pencil whitens the inside of your nail tips. It can be used on dry or damp nails and will give your nails a brighter and cleaner look.
The pencil works particularly well with French manicures since the goal for this type of manicure is white tips. The cap of the pencil is designed to be used as a cuticle pusher which will complete your nail look.
Primal Elements Handmade Glycerin Soaps are so much fun. Take, for instance, the cute soap filled with high heel shoes above. The bar is called Imelda, after the infamous First Lady of the Philippines known for her outrageous shoe collection.
Primal Elements also has Christmas specific bars, as well as bars for birthdays, Valentine’s Day and other holidays. They are generously sized and lather well. Kids love them too!
As I mentioned in my post on Physicians Formula Organ Wear makeup, Physicians Formula Organic Wear Lip Treatment is my new favorite drugstore lip treatment. It contains organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, organic jojoba oil, and antioxidant vitamin E for hydrating and protecting your lips.
My lips feel buttery smooth and soft after application and well protected during these cold winter months. It’s the closest drugstore alternative that I’ve found for my longtime favorite yet pricey Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment (but without the SPF).
I raved about 95 and Sunny Crystal Glass Nail Files in my post on the best-selling products from my bath and body boutique. These Czech Republic-produced tempered glass nail files are the best I’ve ever used. I sold them at my store and recently purchased this set of three on Amazon.
I wanted to be sure that the nail files that I link to here are the same as the ones that I previously sold in my store. They, in fact, are the same nail files that I sold and they are such a great deal on Amazon!
Included in the set is a larger pedicure file (7.5″), a medium nail file (5.5″) and small nail file (3.5″).
They literally never wear out and are easy to wash. They also reduce nail chipping and splitting that you often get from cheap emory boards. Each nail file comes with a protective sheath. Love!
The Original MakeUp Eraser has such a cool concept. Erase all your makeup with just water? It’s true! Millions of hairlike fibers that stand up when wet work together to suction makeup, dirt, and oil out of every pore.
The polyester blend is super soft and designed for sensitive skin. These cloths are different from typical cotton washcloths that are woven in a loop or pile and are much gentler on the skin.
You use the short fiber side of the eraser in circular motions to remove makeup with water only and the long fiber side of the cloth for gentle exfoliation. The eraser should be washed 1-2 times per week and should be machine washed before the first use to activate the fibers.
While I haven’t purchased this facial ice roller yet, it is on my list! This exact roller has been recommended by multiple beauty bloggers and has fantastic reviews. This face roller can soothe, and calm the skin and reduce redness. The roller can even be used to ease migraine and headache pain!
You can store the roller (separated from the handle) in the freezer or you can cool it in the freezer quickly in 10-15 minutes. I think this would be heaven on a hot summer day or really anytime that your skin is inflamed and needs soothing. The perfect spa treatment at home!
As I mentioned in my post on best-selling products from my bath and body shop, Rosebud Salve was one of the first products that I purchased for my store. It is produced by a family-owned company in Maryland. It is a cult-favorite product with not only friends, family and past customers, but you’ll also read about it as a celebrity favorite in beauty and women’s magazines.
It’s so moisturizing and soothing, perfect for chapped dry lips during this time of the year. It’s not sticky at all and has many other uses. Use it over lipstick for a glossy dewy lip. It can also be used to tame unruly eyebrows or for diaper rash!
The holiday-inspired Maybelline Winter Wonderglam Mini Eye Kit contains three mini Maybelline eye products. This limited-edition set includes:
- Total Temptation Mascara – Very Black (0.15 oz)
- Lash Sensational Mascara – Very Black (0.15 oz)
- Master Precise All Day Liner – Black (0.02 oz)
The mascaras will add length and volume without clumping. Total Temptation Mascara has soft bristles while Lash Sensational Mascara has a fanning brush for the full fan effect. The eyeliner is ideal for creating a winged look without the smudging. It will create sharply defined lines with intense black color for up to 12 hours of wear.
I love Real Techniques products, and these sponges are no exception. Real Techniques Mini Miracle Complexion Sponges (Set of 4) are mini versions of their beauty blending sponges.
They are designed so that the round sides will work on large areas of the face, the tip will cover blemishes, and the flat edge will contour the eyes and nose.
While the sponges work on your whole face, they work particularly well around the eyes and can apply and blend concealer into creases and corners quite well. They also stand up to multiple washings. I use Eco Tools Makeup Brush Cleaner as I mentioned above.
L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream Trio includes three L’Occitane’s shea butter hand creams in a festive holiday box. Split them up and give them individually or save the entire set for one lucky recipient. The limited-edition set includes:
- L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream – Limited Edition (net wt. 1 oz.)
- L’Occitane Shea Butter Honey Harvest Hand Cream – Limited Edition (net wt. 1 oz.)
- L’Occitane Shea Butter Festive Garden Light Hand Cream – Limited Edition (net wt. 0.6 oz.)
These shea butter hand creams are so luxurious. I think that L’Occitane makes some of the best hand creams on the market. These are small tubes, but they are so rich and emollient so you don’t need a huge amount for every application.
The things we do for beauty. Like putting snail slime on our faces! Yes, Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Gold Eye Gel Patches contain snail slime. But it is a commonly used ingredient in K-Beauty products, as snail slime contains skin-loving ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, and collagen and can even help to reduce redness and irritation.
These eye gel patches contain not only snail slime, but also 24k gold and five peptides. Wear them for 15 to 20 minutes to increase hydration and to protect the skin barrier. They can also help under-eye circles and bags by brightening and de-puffing the delicate skin around the eyes.

For a fun, glam look, this Handmade False Eyelashes Set contains 50 pairs of false eyelashes plus professional false eyelashes extension remover clip tweezers. Made of thin fibers, there are five different styles of lashes in this set.
The lashes can be customized by cutting and curling them. For application, scissors, tweezers, mascara, and lash glue will be required. Once applied, they will make the eyes look bigger and brighter.
I hope this list will help you add some fun beauty products to the stockings of your loved ones. Shopping for gifts can be time-consuming not to mention expensive, but these affordable beauty inspired stocking stuffers are easy to order online and are sure to please the beauty lover.
Thanks for reading, and until next time…
