I don’t know what it is about teeny-tiny beauty trinkets that just makes me smile. Maybe because it feels like everything about the holidays always has to be “big” – big decorations, big parties, big boxes – that makes me yearn for smaller signs of affection. As someone who just excavated about 50% of my wardrobe (more on that in January,) I’m into doll-sized signs of happiness. See also: smaller beauty gifts are amazing for those of us who travel a lot.
If you give either of these Tocca candles (Chamoix and Meribel, respectively) to ANYONE, they will kiss your face. They smell AMAZING.
If you have a jetsetter or workout enthusiast on your list, a good number of these stocking stuffer items will make a great gift. They might also make a great hostess gift for those of you who might be meeting the parents this time of year. Small, charming, no pressure. The way the holidays should be. 🙂
