This year whizzed by in a flash (I’m still trying to catch my breath) and now we are officially in December – the season of giving. While there is always much excitement about the holidays – and finally having some time to unwind – there is one thing that stresses everyone out: gift purchasing.

Fortunately, it’s the 21st century and we don’t have to brave the congested malls anymore to get our nearest and dearest the perfect prezzies. These days, you don’t even need to leave your house, because online shopping means you are only a few clicks away from something your mom/sister/bestie will love.

And if they happen to be partial to beauty products, then we’ve rounded up some makeup stocking stuffers that will make them at least smile, or, at most, make you their favourite person in the world. And we think you’ll agree that both outcomes are good ones!

Makeup stocking stuffers – a gifting win

Christmas shopping is mad, y’all. Not only are malls filled with people who seemed to have lost their damn minds…

… but negotiating the crowds while also trying to find inspiration for makeup stocking stuffers for your friends and fam is not a vibe. And while you may have seen something in May that you know your friend would LOVE, Black Friday is over, so it’s probably gone. Sad, but true. But retailers are gearing up for even more spending, and have some gorgeous beauty buys on offer that is worthy of a spot on the mantel or under the tree. And, luckily for you, we have found 12 of the best. Or at least the 12 that I would like to find (people who know me, take notes!).
