To be honest I recommend pretty much everything on the Essence display, they're awesome quality at a very affordable price. These make excellent stocking stuffers, & they wont break your bank.

|Soap & Glory Wait On Hand & Foot set|
Lastly is the Soap & Glory Wait On Hand & Foot set, which contains a hand cream as well as a foot cream. Such a great set because you can easily keep the hand cream in your bag & the foot cream on your night stand. Soap & Glory is available at Shoppers Drug Mart
The last category is nail polish, so let's jump into it because I have a mainstream brand & an indie brand that I gotta show ya!
|Essie Polish - Holiday Collection|
For those who are looking for something to buy at a store or if you're looking for something last minute Essie is a great brand, their holiday collections are always gorgeous. I highly recommend them if you're someone who's looking for something simple.
|Sally Hansen Salon Chrome|
Second mainstream item is perfect for the person in your life who is very trend oriented or just really loves nail art. These are the Sally Hansen Salon Chrome sets. I highly recommend these.
|Girly Bits Fall 2017 Collection|
Lastly, is perfect for the nail polish lover in your life, these are Girly Bits Fall 2017 Collection. These are one coat creme polishes. To be honest I recommend these to anyone who uses nail polish considering that means they've all struggled with well not-so-opaque polishes. I could recommend purchasing these soon if you're planning on gifting them as you'll have to order them online.
Pheww! Well there ya have it, items that you can order online now or purchase in store when you realize it's getting super close to the holiday & you're totally not prepared because you, like me, are a professional procrastinator. So I hope you enjoy this gift guide, it inspires you to really customized your gifts to the person you're buying for & really give them something not only that they'll appreciate because they know you thought about it, but also because they'll actually be able to use it!
