Tyler Talks Fashion: Stocking Stuffers For The Fashion Lover

By Tyler Martin

The festive season may seem distant, but there’s no better time than now to begin curating our wishlists. Personally, I find the anticipation of stocking stuffers often surpasses that of big, grand gifts. It’s an ideal opportunity to gather those smaller items we use daily or indulge in the whimsical things we might hesitate to purchase for ourselves. Whether you partake in the tradition of stockings or want ideas for a holiday gift bag for friends, these charming selections are bound to delight. I’ve compiled a collection of my favorite stocking stuffers for this holiday season, tailored to the taste of the fashion aficionado:

Rhode skin, the peptide lip tints, $58

I like to consider myself Rhode Skin’s biggest fan, so I was beyond excited when they released their fun lip tints. Out of all the Rhode products, their classic clear peptide lip treatment has to be my favorite. I wear it every day as a glossy balm and at night as a hydrating lip mask. These new lip tints have the same moisturizing formula of the original treatments, but now include fun colors, perfect for elevating your everyday beauty routine. They sell them individually, but I think the set of four is an amazing deal, offering the most wearability for your money.

Emi Jay, Custom Bamboo Paddle Brush, $134

I absolutely adore Emi Jay; they never miss with their designs, and every item they create is perfect for a stocking. While they are known for their colorful and blinged-out hair clips, my current fixation is their adorable custom hair brushes. A customized brush from Emi Jay is such a thoughtful gift, as it’s not something most people would buy on their own.

Bottega Veneta, Intrecciato Credit Card Case, $520

I am a big fan of metallics this season, so this card holder is right on trend and makes for such a practical gift. I tend to prefer card holders over wallets because they’re easier to slip into bags or tuck into your back pocket. This gold, metallic card case is both useful and chic, plus it will seamlessly match with any of your other accessories, adding a playful pop to your look.

Heaven Mayhem, Mini Knot Gold Earrings, $90

Heaven Mayhem is one of my favorite up-and-coming brands, known for their bold array of earrings sported by the chicest girls, like Hailey Bieber and Matilda Djerf. These earrings are the perfect accessory to dress up a simple outfit or add to your nighttime look. I also love their handmade belts, which are my November favorite.

Dieux Skin, Forever Eye Mask, $25

These reusable eye patches are truly amazing and are suitable for anyone, regardless of their skin type. Simply pat a little extra of your go-to serum or essence under your eyes, place the patches in that area, and allow the patches to help penetrate deeper into your skin. A personal favorite trick of mine is to pop them in my fridge for an added a cooling effect.

Killian, Good Girl Gone Bad Travel Spray, $50

Perfume rollerballs are so convenient and make such practical gifts. They’re perfect for keeping in your bag or car to touch up your scent throughout the day. I’m a big fan of the perfumes by Killian, that can be found at Sephora, they create unique and complex scents that are suitable for both guys and girls.

Art of Sucre, 818 Expresso Glitter Bombs, $22

For those of us over 21, these cocktail glitter bombs are the perfect stocking stuffer to compliment your at-home espresso martini recipe. These are perfect for a holiday party or apartment gathering, adding a little sparkle to your favorite cocktail.

Biologique Recherche, Masque Visolastine, $145

I think the holidays are the perfect time to restock on those larger, more pricey, skincare products that you hesitate to repurchase on a regular basis. One of my favorite skincare splurges is the Biologique Recherché mask, recommended to me by my facialist at Joanna Czech. It’s both calming and hydrating, so it’s ideal for colder weather. This mask is perfect to leave on while you brew some hot tea and enjoy your favorite TV show on a cozy night in.
