KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to KCL Friday Finds! Today's shopping guide is full of affordable beauty-themed stocking stuffers. Don't get me wrong, I love to get candy and chocolates in my stocking, but I also love other gifts, like a cute new pair of socks and especially little beauty products.

A beauty stocking stuffer doesn't have to cost a lot. Between individual sheets masks and bath bombs  to lip balm and nail polish, you can find so many great options under $10. Several options below are even under $5.

The most universal of stocking stuffers, aside from candy, is lip balm. When given as a gift, go with something more luxurious than a Cherry Chapstick from the grocery store. My favorite lip balms at Bua Organics are all-natural and organic and come in options like Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and Jojoba Oil. For a moisturizing lip balm with the addition of a fun scent, try Einstein Bath Co., for flavors like Sangria, Marshmallow, and Pink Frosting.

A wonderful way to give a luxury beauty…

Summer Hostess Gifts Under $40

Never show up at someone else's house empty-handed; that is what my mom taught me from a very young age. Hostess gifts tend to be more common during the holidays, but if you're attending a summer party, don't forget your etiquette. A hostess has to clean, organize, cook, then clean up afterward. Hosting a party takes work and money, so it's always important to bring a hostess gift as a proper way to say thank you. The gift doesn't mean bringing a bottle of wine for the meal. If you're bringing a dessert or drinks for the party, you still need to bring a little gift that is just for the hostess.
A popular type of gift to bring a hostess is something she can use for future entertaining. Just like with any gift, it's best to choose something that is functional but is also a luxury item that the recipient might not buy for herself.


You don't need to spend a lot of money on a hostess gift. Twenty dollars is a good average for how much to spend on a gift for a party host. If it's a casual barbecue hosted by a friend, you can spend $10 to $20 on the gift. If you're attending a formal summer party with a sit-down dinner, you should work your way up from $20.00. Personally, I'd never spend more than $50 on a hostess gift. Here are some great options for summer hostess gifts under $40.00.
