You know the aisle at Sephora, the one that surrounds you on all sides as you’re waiting to check out? I raided it this week.

I guess I had a good reason… it was necessary to bring you all some fun small gift ideas and/or stocking stuffers for that beauty lover in your life!

They have MANY more options than these three that I’m going to show you, but these are some that caught my eye.

You can click on each of the headers to be taken to the Sephora website to see more details on these products.

Sephora “Give Me Some Lip” Set

Sephora Give Me Some Lip This set was a great find. Sephora also has a “Give Me Lip” set for $59 that contains 4 different sets of 5 lip products each. But for the purpose of this post, I thought this would be the perfect addition to a stocking or small gift to give in combo with some other beauty related gifts.

This specific set is $25 with a stated $90 value, which I completely believe. The products in here are all high quality lip items and most of them are an excellent size.

This gift set includes: (Top) Urban Decay Mini Naked Revolution Lipstick, Deluxe Size NARS Orgasm Gloss, Buxom Mini Full On Lip Cream in White Russian,  Marc Jacobs Mini Lust for Lacquer  in Kissability, Deluxe Size Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in Meritage and a Full Size Smashbox Gloss in Pout (Bottom).

The products are swatched above in the order that they are in the box, from top to bottom. The colors are a good range of nude, pink and even a slightly deeper pink/fuchsia color in the Bite Beauty Lip Pencil. Without a doubt worth the $25!

“Prelude to a Kiss” Fragrance Sampler

sephora fragrance samplerI love perfumes, but I hate the huge price tag that comes with them. When I saw this set, I thought it would be a great idea for those that love to try different high-end perfumes without the cost.

I was slightly disappointed with the size of the perfumes, seeing as they are truly sample size that you could probably get for free at any perfume counter. The set was $24 and it comes with 6 different perfume samples, and states that it is valued at $41… which I don’t know if I believe fully. They are all high-end perfumes with a good range of scents, not one too similar to another.

The samples included are: “See” by Chloe, Acqua Di Gioia” by Giorgio Armani(my favorite of the bunch), Gucci “Premiere”, “Honey” by Marc Jacobs, “Flowerbomb” by Viktor & Rolf and “Romance” by Ralph Lauren.

I wasn’t disappointed with any of the scents or staying power of the actual perfumes, just the actual size of the samples that came with this set. It does come with a voucher for a free roller ball of your choice out of the six that come in this set, which is a $20+ value in itself. It kind of makes up for the size of the samples.

Sephora also had roller ball perfume sets for around this same price, most that came with two. I would choose those over this set for the perfume lover, especially if you know what types of smells they enjoy. If not, this might be a fun set for them to try out a variety of scents and maybe discover one that they love.

First Aid Beauty Hydrating Duo Set

first aid beauty gift set

If you know someone who loves skin care, this is the perfect stocking stuffer. I love First Aid Beauty and have yet to try one of their products that I dislike.

The Ultra Repair Cream that comes in this set is what I use on my face almost every single night to moisturize. That product alone is worth the $16 you pay for the duo, since it is normally $12 by itself. The set as a whole is valued at $24.

I had never tried the Lip Therapy before, but around this time of year my lips get extra chapped, as many others do. This is a great product and would make a perfect addition to someone’s stocking for those dry winter months.

This is a great stocking stuffer or a great add-in to a bunch of smaller gifts you may be putting together for someone:)
