Tis the season, right? The season for shopping, holiday parties, total and complete exhaustion…
…anyone else feeling this way?
I think I’ve been to the mall 4 times in the past few days and it’s firming my resolve to not go near a mall the entire month of January! But one thing that has been fun has been getting stocking stuffers out of the way! Good things really do come in small packages and Sephora is out to prove that this holiday season. They’ve put together a ton of gift sets in a bunch of categories like fragrance, makeup, and skincare! You can snag a travel-size of your favorite products or something you’ve been meaning to try! But this year I’m taking advantage of their offerings and I grabbed a bunch of stocking stuffers for Emery and Anisten.
Ok, I may have grabbed a few for myself as well. And I’m kind of dying to show them to you guys! They’re some of my FAVORITE products and because they’re in gift sets, they’re also serving up major savings! So I rounded up a few of my must-have tiny-sized products and miniature sets from brands like Fresh, Laniege, Tatcha, and more that you should definitely snag before they (inevitably) go out of stock!
This gift set is $42 ($74 value), but the feeling of nourished, non-chapped lips during the winter is pretty much priceless. My girls are a bit past the stage of the dollar chapsticks that come in a pack of 10. They want something that actually keeps their lips smooth and provides a bit of color without going full-on lipstick! They get the cult-favorite Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy and can then top it off with a subtle nude, pretty pink, or bright tint!

When Ole Henriksen launched Banana Bright Eye Crème, it sold out pretty much immediately. And every time it goes on sale or Sephora has a Beauty Insider event, it’s usually one of the first things to go out-of-stock. So I’m super pumped to try the rest of the products in this amazing kit! For $50 ($98 value), not only are you getting the famous undereye cream, but you’re also getting the Truth Serum®, C-Rush™ Brightening Gel Crème, and Banana Bright Face Primer!
Truth Serum®, formulated with True-C Complex™ and collagen, helps brighten and firm skin. C-Rush™ Brightening Gel Crème, loaded with three sources of vitamin C and rose of winter extract, is supposed to pack in the hydration and target fine lines and wrinkles. Banana Bright™ Eye Crème, hydrates and lightens the undereye while the Vitamin-C powered Banana Bright™ Face Primer improves and extends makeup wear all day while delivering skincare benefits, too. It’s the kit that is made to help you glow!
Speaking of Sephora’s Beauty Insider loyalty program, if you haven’t joined yet, you definitely should! The program features three tiers based on your yearly Sephora spending — Beauty Insider, which is free, VIB if you spend at least $350, and Rouge if you spend $1,000 or more — with varying perks.

And once you’ve signed up, you need to check out my third pick for the PERFECT stocking stuffer!
Not gonna lie, I was probably most excited when I saw this kit. I have been a die-hard fan of the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask FOR-E-VER and when they brought out these Lip Glowy Balms I became an instant fan! When I first tried this trio — which are basically heaven and velvet and amazingness in a tube — I knew on the spot that they would have a place in my purse, car, bathroom, junk drawer, and anywhere else I decided to stash them. For starters, they smell sublime! Formulated with murumuru and shea butter, each fruity-flavored tube can be used on-the-go for lips that are soft, smooth, and ready to conquer the day.
At $35 ($45 value) for the set, these are the perfect lip balms for my girl’s stockings! Honestly, though, I scored with everything I purchased + I saved a ton!
Make sure you check out Sephora’s Beauty Insider loyalty program and then head to Sephora to shop for their incredible selection of gift kits! And then come back here and tell me what you pick up!
