Oranges and chocolates may be traditional, but when it comes to stocking stuffers, let’s face it, they are a bit ho-hum. For the 21st Century, nothing but the most creative will do. Here are some beauty mistletoe musts that even the woman who has just about everything will cherish.

This is the first-ever black eau de parfum and the first-ever fragrance from Lady Gaga. The perfume, however, goes on clear. It’s an ideal gift for that special someone who defies description, and who loves to defy convention. I wore this out and received numerous compliments from random strangers. Is that a good or bad thing? You decide. The perfume’s notes include incense and belladonna to give it that dark facet; it also has sensual notes of apricot and honey, and feminine facets of jasmine, sambac and tiger orchid.

These gift is every hostess’ dream, and a very elegant and luxurious addition to any home. And since it’s all about the era of personalization these days, this stocking stuffer will be met with a huge thank you. The Monogram Collection contains natural ingredients and is scented with the clean crisp scent of Green Tea & Bergamot, and available in letters A, B, C, D, E, G, J, K, L, M, R, S. The Liquid Hand Wash is my special favorite because the bottles themselves are super stylish, and the cute grosgrain ribbon is a touch of Gossip Girl meets Martha Stewart. Plus, did we mention they’re ultra gentle and moisturizing?

Prepare your lips for some mistletoe action this year with this shimmery and moisturizing threesome of lip glosses. Easily slipped into a stocking, this set features Glitter Lip Gloss in Grape, Shimmer Lip Gloss in Pink Mist and Pink Violet Lip Gloss for a just a hint of added color.  All that glitters is not gold, and this trio gives a perfect subtle sheen. Looks fabulous under the influence of a glowing fire.
