I first spotted these hair ties on Movie Girl & actually had complemented her 'bracelet.' When she explained they were hair ties...
I went out & got some for myself from Anthropologie! I can't tell you how often I have hair ties or elastics on my wrist for work that look, well like hair ties. These look so lovely on the wrist. Three are for $24- so since I do 3 stockings for my mom & sisters I'd split up the pack.
I'm obsessed with NYX Lip Butters, I mean beyond. When my lips are chapped I used to turn only to by beloved Aquaphor. The fact that I reach for these now too is saying something! I bought these trios for my sisters' stockings at 40% off their normal $9.99 price tag. If you can't find the sets anymore locally, still head to Ulta where the singles are buy one, get one 50% off.
Here's an option from Benefit with super cute packaging that breaks down to about $4.33 a gloss if divvied up.
I stumbled upon this Perlier set by accident while watching (ahem being sucked into) a beauty segment on HSN.
It's a collection of 9 hand creams in the box + 1 bonus anti-aging body balm at a special price if $19.95.
Now I know we all dip into the 99 cent bin sometimes for beauty items, especially for stockings & bulk gifts or favors- but most of the time you feel it in the actual quality of the product or worse the smell is gross. These hand creams are luxurious & much needed this time of year. I would wrap individually & fill an entire stocking for someone like a nurse or teacher or esthetician; ^) that's washing their hands all the time during these cold months.
Peace. Love. Lipgloss.
