GLAMOROUSLY PRACTICAL: 6 Stocking Stuffers Under $26 from Good To Be You

Stocking stuffers are always the most fun to open at Christmas, aren't they? Here, a few fab things just about any woman would love to discover in her stocking this holiday season, from my go-to source for girlie goodies, online shopping site Good To Be You.  Glam yet practical -- you may have to choose a few of these treats for yourself, too. (I did!)  All hand-picked for Style Maniac readers by our friend, gorgeous GTBY owner Lee Romano Sequeira.  Read her recommendations below. And as a special holiday treat enjoy 10% off any purchase from the site with code "Maniac10" (valid through 2/25/13). NOTE: For Christmas delivery order by noon EST on Wednesday December 19, 2012.

Girl on the go? Good To Be You has you covered with their adorable Embroidered Blow Dryer Bag ($22) and Flat Iron Bag ($20). These chic bags (above) will protect your investments from scratches and dents, while doubling as a pretty and unique gift wrap!

Shemergency Kit ($25) takes you from daytime to playtime with a bevy of personal care items you can stash in your desk, car or handbag.  "Life-saver" necessities (such as double-sided tape, sewing kit, mini first aid) for any beauty blunder you may encounter while heading from the office to cocktails with the girls, or a night out with your beau.

A multi-tasking marvel to keep your locks sweetly scented between shampoos, a staff fave is our Satin Sugar Glistening Dry Shampoo and Body Powder ($18).  This velvety powder contains light-reflecting minerals to illuminate your hair with sophisticated sheen. Plus, it absorbs excess oil and adds volume while refreshing your tresses.

Happy Feet! At the end of the evening, you'll never know how your tootsies survived without these rollable, foldable and adorable Ballet Flats ($18, in gold, silver or black).  Just pop them out of your bag (they fit in the smallest of purses, or his jacket pocket) and use the handy shoe bag (included) to tote those heels home.

After a hectic day relax and unwind by treating yourself to a luxurious soak with our Cocktail Hour Bubble Bath ($20).  A fresh floral blend of black currant and Bulgarian rose smells divine, while it conditions and softens your skin.  Best of all, you won't even need to decide if you want it shaken or stirred.

As we always say, Stay Gorgeous -- and feel gorgeous at www.GoodToBeYou.com

Perfect stocking stuffers! I just got the Hollywood Hip Hugger so I don't have to wear a belt with jeans and have the buckle bulge under my sweater. It works like a charm! I also got the Sweater saver which saved a couple of my faves! Fun just to peruse the items, too.
