DIY Gifting Done Right

Disclaimer: Thank you to Target for sponsoring this post!


When it comes to holiday gifting, I love adding a personal touch to everything I give. As can be expected, everyone gets beauty gifts galore from me. To make every gift a bit more special and personalized, I love to break apart my gift sets, add in some stocking stuffers, and customize each gift in some fun wrappings. Holiday sets are a great way to get an awesome value on products, so it’s a great time to stock up. I partnered with Target to raid their beauty aisle and pick my favorite gift sets and packaging to create four awesome gifts for my friends.

The Gift Set Picks (as seen above):

  • Essie Cocktail Bling Set – Includes four mini Essie nail-polish shades, including: Cocktail Bling, A-List, Rock at the Top, and Mind Your Mittens.
  • Burt’s Bees Tips and Toes Kit – Six-piece set, including Hand Salve, Almond & Milk Hand Cream, Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, Coconut Foot Cream, and Honey & Grapeseed Hand Cream.
  • Mane Tame Hairmergency Kit – 27 hair essentials, including two mini hair claws, six ponios, one head wrap, six hair ties, and 12 bobby pins.

Stocking-Stuffer Picks:

Sonia-Kashik-makeup-bags-targetWhen it comes to creative wrapping, Target has so many fun choices. Sonia Kashuk has an amazing assortment of makeup cases and travel cases that are great to pack products in. I also found so much fun inspiration just walking down the aisles, from festive felt pails (how cute is the fox pail?) and snowflake tins to holiday mugs and woven wine bottle holders that all make for great packaging.

Threshold brand also makes a wonderful mix of mugs, dipping bowls (which are great to hold jewelry next to your bed), and plates that are great for gifting in. Lastly, Target has great holiday gift tags and wrapping at great prices. Check out their Sugar Paper line for festive boxes, ribbons, and other wrappings. You can use tissue paper as a filler, or my personal favorite: Gift Wrap Spritz shredded paper.
