Last weekend was Shop Small Saturday all across the country started by American Express. I participated in it proudly again this year. And here are a few takeaways of what girls bought for their besties or themselves.
Stocking Stuffers or token gifts…
Remember it is the thought that counts not the price OR how much you buy for that person! And you know what the real reason for the season is!
Makeup Brushes by the set are a coveted gift a girl struggles to get for herself. So many to choose from and it can be overwhelming. Buying ala carte is not the best thing to do unless that is your budget. It is cheaper and chicer to buy a set. And you don’t have to spend a fortune for them. Remember the $ dollar $ quality is not the same as a boutique.
Wine,rose,champagne wine holders chic and so versatile. Use them for booze, décor and or to rest your bling and baubles on. They say wine is most gals best friend over any other libation. Add a few gourmet or edible delights like below and you have a gift that won’t be forgotten!
Lipsticks are always in style and putting together a set of a variety of them for your mom or bestie can be so much fun! Add a gloss or balm and they love you forever.
*Add a lip brush and you’re all set. Yes, they are still in.
Bath and Body Treats are so lovely! And SO NEEDED. When you shop you can get a lot of little pieces. Aromatic and hydrating are best for the skin. And aromatherapy is so relaxing and mood lifting and calming.
Candles are always a good idea!
Palo Santo,Sage and herb plants are both unique and practical too.
Fragrance is a very personal thing. So, I usually only give it in bath and body lotions not necessarily by the bottle. Unless you know the exact fragrance they love.
I hope I got your juices and creativity going for finding that perfect token gift or stocking stuffer.
Have fun and happy Shopping,Gorgeous!
