7 Stocking Stuffers To Bring Seasonal Good Cheer
Searching for the perfect stocking-sized gifts? These little beauty luxuries are guaranteed to surprise and delight, says NEWBY HANDS
Dr. Barbara Sturm Winter Kit
This slick kit gives you six of Dr. Barbara Sturm’s bestselling products to try. Including the Cleanser, Face Mask (Dr. Sturm uses it daily), the Calming and Night serums, the Super Anti-Aging Face Cream and the Lip Balm, it all comes in a gorgeous white puffer bag, just like a little winter jacket. The ideal skincare ‘taster’ kit – or perfect to pack for a long weekend away.
Slip Embroidered silk eye mask
Putting the ‘beauty’ into beauty sleep, this gorgeous pure silk eye mask from Slip does more than just block out unwanted light (although that is key to a good night’s sleep). The silk helps keep skin hydrated (unlike cotton pillowcases), ensuring you wake up with brighter, fresher-looking eyes. It’s super-comfortable to wear, too, while the beautiful shade of gold will add a touch of glamour to your night-time routine.
Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint Germain Candle
Admittedly, you might need a very stretchy stocking to fit this gorgeous gift in, but it would be well worth the effort when it comes to this beautifully scented candle from Diptyque. With an aromatic blend of moss, blackcurrants and sun-dried figs, it elegantly scents any space. Plus, when finished, the creamy white ceramic vessel makes an ideal storage pot for makeup pencils and brushes.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palette in Butterfly
If you want to give the gift of glowing skin, then this is the perfect complexion-enhancing present – because Hourglass excels at enhancing that luminous finish. Combining three bestselling shades with three new ones, use the Lighting Powder to dust over skin for a soft, shimmer-free candle-lit glow. Meanwhile, the blushes and highlights can be used to accentuate and shape the face.
Noble Panacea The Absolute Discovery Ritual
This is the ideal gift for the true high-tech skincare lover or someone looking for a routine revamp – or simply to treat yourself if you’re heading away for a week. The slick box contains seven days’ worth of individually wrapped and perfectly dosed skin treats. Containing four of Noble Panacea’s key skincare steps, the set includes the Intense Renewal Serum and Restoring Eye Cream, plus high-science treatment creams for both day and night. It’s a great way to discover both the excellence of this covetable range and a new healthy, glowing complexion.
Frederic Malle Editions Discovery Set
From the glossy red mini atomisers to the six iconic modern scents they hold, this truly is a charming gift for every fragrance lover, or anyone looking for a new perfume to make their signature scent. Frederic Malle is known for working with the best noses in the perfume industry to create a collection of incredible scents, and this set features some of Malle’s most-loved fragrances – including the heady Carnal Flower, the bestselling Portrait of a Lady and the softly elegant Iris Poudre.
Angela Caglia Self Love Rose Quartz Eye Mask
A truly charming gift to give (and receive), this crystal eye mask from Angela Caglia is not just pretty to look at, it helps calm and cool tired, dry eyes. Plus, the rose quartz is said to support the heart chakra, so opens you up to more self-love. For those after a more practical approach, keep the mask chilled overnight to use in the morning, or warm it in water and dry to use on screen-weary eyes at the end of a long day. You can even use it over a sheet or cream eye mask.
