Favorite Things Party

It’s THANKSGIVING week!!  Wow!  That came so quickly!  I’m so excited about this week.  I have my kiddos home with me all week long AND we have family coming to town for Thanksgiving.   Today, Andrea and I are having a Par-Tay!!  Every last Monday of the month we host a “Favorite Things Party” and share a few favorite things under $10.  Don’t forget to join us!!  Just post a few of your faves under $10, link back to us, and link up!

Since it’s SO close to Christmas, (you guys only 4 Fridays until Christmas!!) I thought I’d share some fabulous stocking stuff ideas for under $10.

I’ve heard AMAZING things about this primer and found this little gift set for $10.  It’d be a super great way to try out a few products.  Ladies…if you’ve never tried a foundation primer before…you need to rectify that situation ASAP.  I got one in my Birchbox this summer and it changed my life!!  

I’ve discussed my love for Birchbox several times before, but I can think of nothing better for a stocking stuffer!!  If you haven’t heard of Birchbox, it’s an amazing company!!  My aunt gave me a subscription back in January and it was like Christmas EVERY time it arrived!  For only $10 a month, you can sign up HERE for a subscription.  You receive a box of four to five beauty products samples ranging from nail polish to perfume.  You could stuff a stocking with only one Birchbox, get them a couple months’ subscription, or treat them to an entire year!  Just to get an idea…this is what came in my box this month…

 Folle de joie perfume

Bain de Terre Argan Oil and Passion Flower Styling Oil

Eyeko Fat Eye Stick

I didn’t pay attention to the “Eye Stick” on the side and I immediately opened it up and applied “lip gloss”.  hahahahaha!

Perlier Body Butter

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint

I’ve shared my love for cozy socks before as well, but they MUST be included in a stocking stuffer post!  These Old Navy socks are my absolute favorites!!

This Essie set is a little over the $10 budget, but I couldn’t choose just one color.  I also LOVE that glitter polish!!  This would be so fun to see in a stocking, wouldn’t it??

Please let me know what you’d love to find in your stocking!!  Do you have items on your wish list for under $10??  I’m hoping my “Santa” reads this post!  haha!  

Don’t forget to link up with us!!  Just add your link at the bottom!  Happy Monday!!

Tomorrow on the blog, I’ll tell you all about our weekend and I was reminded of my love for Ruffles and French Onion Dip!  hahahahaha!!  #whyisitsogood

    I'm a huge BIrchbox fan and just gifted two sets – one to my mom and one to my aunt. What great gifts that keep giving! And even better, each person doesn't receive exactly the same things in their boxes so we can all trade around if there is something you don't like!

    Thank you for sharing! I may be adding cozy socks to a few stockings this year. It's been mighty cold here in Colorado!

    We have similar taste when it comes to stocking stuffers 🙂 Nail polish is always a good idea! I like lip balms as well 🙂
