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…

Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Her: French Macarons


I first fell in love with these beautiful French cookies at a boutique chocolate shop inside Rockefeller Center in New York City. Long before then I had a little obsession with how beautiful macarons are, and when I bit into the light, crispy shell and gooey center, I was a total goner. These French treats tend to come in beautiful pastel shades, so they're perfect to give to your Valentine, a daughter, or gal pal this holiday. Some of these are obviously best for gift giving to pals or daughters. Seriously dudes, don't come crying to me if you're dumb enough to give your wife tea towels or stationary for Valentine's Day, unless of course it's paired with a huge box of actual macarons.

These French cookies can be on the pricey side, but a great option to give a friend or relative a sweet little treat is The Memory of Paris Box of 6 by Leilalove Macarons. It has all 5-star reviews and is currently on sale at 25% off, marked down from $32.00 to $24.00. For something a little more substantial (for your special someone), give a larger assortment of macarons, like the 16-count box that comes with eight flavors in a beautiful gift box. If you need a gluten-free option, try these LeilaLove Macarons 10 Quantities 8 Flavors. These are all made fresh to order and have great customer reviews regarding shipping, presentation, and taste; any girl would be happy to get these on Valentine's Day.

Due to their huge rise in popularity in the US the last few years, macarons are not just for eating anymore. You can find cute gift items in the shape of a macaron, art and home goods printed with the cookie, and even macaron-scented beauty products.
