My guide to shopping this Christmas.

It’s finally the Christmas season again and sometimes I know it can be hard to find the perfect Christmas gifts for your friends and loved one. If you are like me the people you are going to buy Christmas gifts for this season actually love and are interested in a range of things. This year for Christmas I have decided to do Beauty Bag Stuffers and also Beauty Box Stuffers. My idea this year is to buy a bunch of stuff that are budget friendly and throw it together in a cute beauty bag or a Christmas themed box filled with a bunch of cool stuff. So today’s post is a guide to where to shop and what to buy. Guys you can also take a few notes to if you don’t know what to get your girlfriend, sister or one of your friends who are girls. I always say if you don’t know what to buy get them a bunch of cute stuff that you know they would love. It’s still gift shopping so put you heart into it.

This Christmas I will be buying these cute jumbo sized wristlet from New York and Company (they come in sets of three and are $15 for the set) and also I will going to target and getting gift boxes that you can decorate to make it more festive. Below is an idea of two of boxes you can use and also the style. You can add your own personal touch. Simply buy a plain box cause it will be cheaper and then decorate it yourself to make it more personal. You can fill them with with whatever you want as long as it all fits.Sorry I have no pictures of the wristlets I am using but I will add a picture as soon as I buy them.

Now it’s time to buy things to fill them. If you are buying a gift for a girl who loves a lot of girly stuff then it I can guide you as to where to shop and what to buy. First of all you need to figure out what you want to buy and what your budget is. I love buying a lot of products from different stores so first I will go to Target and look at the gift sets they have from E.L.F. E.L.F sells cosmetics products that are very budget friendly and also the quality is really good for the prices they offer. E.L.F is probably one of my favorite companies around Christmas time they sell makeup palette sets for as low as $3 that features eyeshadow, lip glosses,brushes, primers, eyelashes, nail polishes etc. Check out the $3 gift set page here.  They also have gift sets that cost $5 that are even more fabulous featuring Beauty Books, Mini Eyeshadow Palettes and many more awesome stuff. Be Mesmerized I urge you totally visit their website and just take a look around. You might have to order some of the things you might want online because Target doesn’t have a lot of the products in store. http://www.eyeslipsface.com/makeup/gifts

Another place you can shop for some of your favorites is Forever 21. Forever 21 has a lot of budget friendly pieces you can throw into the box to show that special someone that you care. Some stuff you can buy at Forever 21 are scarves, hats, nail polishes, lipgloss, jewelry and so much more. Just be sure to buy things that can fit into box or bag. If you are going to forever 21 I suggest you use the box because it is so easy to get carried away and buy out Forever 21. Just remember to stick to your budget!!

I really enjoyed looking up the stuff and creating sets on Polyvore. Polyvore is like my favorite website to create outfits and now also gift set ideas. I hope you guys can take a few ideas from me and I just want to say good luck with your Christmas shopping this year.
