Stuff A Stocking for $25 at Walmart!

It isn't until recently that my family started filling up the stocking that decorated our fireplace. Yeah, we started filling up our stockings once the amount of presents under the tree started getting smaller hahaha. As a family, we usually put our names in a hat and each person draws a name...and that's the person who's stocking you have to fill, with a limit of $25. And for the other 6 that you didn't draw, you have to stuff with an item(s) valued at $5. So you can imagine our stockings get pretty stuffed hehehe.

This year I picked out my sister, Gabriela for the stocking stuffer draw, so right away I knew I'd be stuffing that sock with beauty products and some sweets! It's always a good idea to stuff stockings with things that the recipient will enjoy, I know my sister will love anything in the beauty department, since she is always trying and buying beauty products.
The task of buying stocking stuffers can be difficult because you don't want to throw just any thing in; you want the stuffers to be things that the recipient will love, while still being affordable. Right?

Just because you are purchasing stocking stuffers, doesn't mean you can't wrap'em up or make mini gift packs. One of my favorite things to do is make just that, mini gift packs. Like I mentioned previously, my sister is really into beauty/cosmetics so I decided that I would make her three beauty packs, each dedicated to something specific; nails, lips and hair. 
Now when I'm making these mini gift packs, I have to go to a store that will have everything I am looking for aka a one stop shop! In this particular case, I went to Walmart, they always have a wide variety of beauty products at affordable prices!
I spent about a good hour at Walmart getting the perfect stocking stuffers for my sister. 
I walked through the aisles of the beauty department looking for any good deals for any nails, lips and hair products since I was going to make her three beauty packs. In the "hair" aisle there were several boxes marked Goody $1, which totally caught my attention! We all know Goody is a reliable hair brand, so I just had to pick up a vent brush and 12 no metal hair ties. Oh, and a pack of Goody bobby pins because a girl can never have enough bobby pins hehehe. Hair pack done!

My sister takes very good care of her nails, so I wanted to get her a couple of things that she could use. I think this part was the most overwhelming, I didn't realize that just about every cosmetic brand has nail polish...in every colour imaginable, in a wide variety of prices too! I got her a cute shade of pink NYC polish for $1, a pastel-purple polish from Maybelline for $2, nail filer pack for $2, cutcile sticks for $1.38 and a mini bottle of nail polish remover for 89 cents.

And for the last mini gift pack, lips, I decided I would get her a lip moisturizer, lipsticks and lipgloss. I know my sister likes pinks and reds on her lips so I picked out Maybelline's big hit, BABY LIPS in Pink Shock (tinted moisturizer) for $4, NYC's Plumping Lip Gloss in Supersized Red for $4 and a Wet'n'Wild lipstick in Cherry Frost for $1.57.
And last but not least, I bought a 3 pack of Ferrero Rocher. My total for the 12 items came out to $24.91! I think I did a pretty good job with these mini beauty packs, don't you? My sister's stocking will be beautifully stuffed for $25!!! 
Now what are you waiting for to get started on stuffing a stocking with great goodies that the recipient will love for $25?
