Hello hello fellow procrastinators.
If you’re like me, you’ve procrastinated & that’s why you’re here. Don’t worry though, I got ya covered. These are the last minute stocking stuffers I’ll be getting for family & friends. They’re all under $25 but will still make you feel like you’re giving something unique & cute.
Let’s be honest, we’re all on a time crunch so I feel like we should get right to the post. We can touch base after the holiday chaos is over.
Lauryn’s Stocking Stuffers
When I was introduced to this, I immediately fell in love.
First of all, this makes your hair smell amazing. I swear even when I’m not wearing deodorant ( ….LOL ) people will comment about the light, fresh smell. It’s not attributed to anything but this texturizing spray.
The best thing about this product though is that it sort of gives waves with that chic, edgy vibe. It’s hard to explain but it takes the 4-year-old curl out of the equation. Basically makes the curls less precious? My waves DO NOT LOOK the same without this product. After waves are added to my hair I add this thick dry finishing spray to complete the look. I spray it about 6 inches from my hair & kind of shake up the hair.
You guys may already know that I use these straws every damn second of the day. I even had them scattered all over my baby shower. These are perfect for anyone. Men, women & kids will love them. Some benefits:
+ high quality, non plastic, 100% food grade
+ safe for all ages due to soft, non teeth chipping
+ BPA free, BPS free, Phthalate free, PVC free
+ non-toxic, non-leaching, taste-less non metallic taste, odor, & stain resistant
+ they’re not overly hot when drinking hot beverages & not freezing cold when drinking smoothies
+ they’re WIDE & LONG…phallic, no?
As far as cleaning goes, you can wash them in the dishwasher or by hand with the cleaner the pack comes with.
Very much into First Aid Beauty lately. It’s a clean beauty brand & I’ve really been loving their coconut primer.
This set is something that every woman would want in her stocking. It includes: Ultra Repair Cream & the Ultra Repair Lip Therapy. This set is all about hydration & both things you can wear under your makeup. Even throw in a damp Beautyblender & you’re ready to go.
Every girl wants one of these. Caboodles are so nostalgic & really keep your shit organized. This mini one is perfect to throw in your handbag. Fill it with lipsticks, skin care, makeup, tissues, Wisps, you get it.
BLENDING. There are brushes, your finger, & compact blenders but nothing is as GOOD as a beautyblender.
To be completely transparent, I’ve tried to cut corners & use fake beautyblenders from Forever21 ( they’re cheap & don’t work well— they’re super hard too. Weird. ). And nothing is as good as the real deal beautyblender.
As you know the creator of Drunk Elephant was on The Skinny Confidential HIM & HER podcast not too long ago. Tiffany Masterson is such a badass & really created products that work. This duo includes the B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum & the C-Firma Day Serum. These are products for people of any age- 16, 25, 40.
This deodorant is an aluminum & baking soda-free deodorant that works with your body’s natural functions to aid in odor reduction. It’s this invisible formula that glides on smooth & works with you- you know? Like it lasts. Basically it’s guaranteed to leave you smelling like fresh coconut milk. Who the hell doesn’t want to smell like fresh coconut milk? I AM IN.
Everyone needs a charger, but let’s keep it pink & lilac if we must have an ugly long string hanging from our phones. You can travel with this, put in your briefcase, or just use them for cute pics on your Instagram feed.

This is a book I read the second I got pregnant & I’m so obsessed with Kat & Nat. ( They also have a board game ). Anyway, they have created this massive online community for moms. They’re ultra real with an R-rated touch- my kind of moms.
I CANNOT EVEN TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS SCRUB. I use it every time I shower & it smells INSANE. It’s so perfect for dry brushing. This little silicone brush does the same thing as a dry brush, plus it’s cute & pink. It would be so cute to gift these 2 things together with a hand written note of the benefits of dry brushing. Benefits include:
+ stimulates the lymphatic system
+ exfoliates & removes dead skin
+ increases circulation
+ reduces cellulite
+ relieves stress
+ improves digestion
+ invigorating AF
