last minute stocking stuffer ideas

I am one of those annoying people who gets their holiday shopping done early.  But it's mostly because I love to give gifts.  And of course any excuse to shop......
I think most people leave the pesky stocking stuffer shopping until the last minute and end up scouring Walgreen's at 9 pm Christmas eve, only to end up with SpongeBob bandaides, Schick Razors, and VO5 hot oil treatment.  But that doesn't have to happen.  Even if you wait til nearly the last moment possible there are still bound to be some cute gifts out there - don't settle for the Nivea hand cream cream.  For example you could look for:

Sephora Collection Nail Wand is an absolutely adorable stack of mini nail polishes in luxe colors. It is irresistible to girls and women of any age - a no-brainer for anyone that does their own nails.

Fresh Oval Soap comes in a variety of sensuous fragrances, from the light and citrusy cintron de vigne to the earthy patchouli.  The highest quality triple-milled soap, it comes wrapped in the most delicate and delightful paper.  The ideal gift.

Bobby Brown Tube Tint Trio are universally flattering lip glosses that work for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.  If you buy into the theory that a gal can never have too many lip glosses, this trio will fit the bill.  And who doesn't love Bobby Brown?

Belle Fleur Classic Floral Petite Trio  candles come in sophisticated-looking tortuous shell votives and smell simply divine.  The trick here is to divide up the gift box and give the candles to three different recipients.

Marvis Toothpaste is a fun and funky import from England.  What may be an everyday staple to the British translates into something exotic stateside.  Go conservative and pick 'strong mint', or go exotic and choose 'ginger mint' or jasmin mint'.

Tarina Tarantino Jewel Mirror is a cool oval compact that will jazz up any makeup bag.  Perfect for the girly-girl who always has to have a little bling.
