Don’t tell my Clarisonic face brush, but there is a new gadget in town and it has my name written all over it! If you love skin pampering techie thangs, add this to your list! The Foreo LUNA Mini ($139, sephora.com) is a silicone facial brush that promises to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. I haven’t tried it yet but the reviews are promising. Plus, isn’t it just darling to look at?
Got so many beauty baubles and don’t have any places to store them? The Contents Contents Boho Glow 3-Piece Pouch Set ($16.99, target.com) is all kinds of sweet because you’ve got you’ll get enough cosmetic bags to leave at home, in the car, at work, your gym bag…anywhere! Not to mention, the designs are classy and luxurious.

When it comes to decadent scents, Philosophy knows what they’re doing. Forget adding this to my wish list. I’ve already gone ahead and ordered this Philosophy Pink Marshmallow Buttercream trio ($24, macys.com) for myself. Can you blame me? What mama wouldn’t want to lather herself from head to toe with this sweet-smelling fragrance? Ahhh yes, it’s the next best thing to a spa treatment. Kinda.

The brand Simple has some of the best skincare products that I’ve tried and I love how everything they make is suitable for my sensitive skin. The gift bag will be perfect for travels.
I try hard to not want everything that Urban Decay comes out with but ugh, I fail EVERY time. Their Naked on the Run palette ($54, ulta.com) is absolutely glorious and perfect for my beauty beginners and aficionados alike. Plus, the palette has everything you need to crank out a fabulous look in a matter of minutes.
Are you a simple girl with simple desires? Tarte’s Lights, Camera Lashes mascara ($10, sephora.com) is one of the best mascaras in the game. And of course I would say that, but the reviews don’t lie. This is one mascara that I purchase over and over again and I certainly won’t be remiss in recommended it as a stocking stuffer from El Hub.
Ahhh yes, a gift certificate to Etsy (etsy.com). Some say gift certificates are impersonal but I beg to differ. Nothing says I love you like, “Here. Buy something you REALLY want!” like a gift card. If you love hand crafted soaps, blended oils and all things homemade, scribble this on your list.
For the moms that actually have time to take those unicorn experiences called bubble baths, this All-Natural Bath Bomb set ($29, amazon.com) should be on your list. If you find those bath bombs at LUSH to be far too fragranced for your sensitive skin and nose, the bath bombs from Rejuvelle may be just what you need.
You’ve got her shoes and her purses and if you’re looking to add to your Tory Burch collection, look no further than Tory Burch Eau de Parfum ($85, nordstrom.com). Do you dig floral notes
with a hint of citrus and just a touch of earthiness?
