Under $15: Tatcha Japanese Blotting Papers

My idea of the perfect stocking stuffer? Something that seems far to special to be a stocking stuffer, but its price tag says otherwise. Tatcha Japanese gold-flecked blotting papers are absurdly chic, prettily packaged, and cost $12-15. Made from aburatorigami, an incredibly soft, strong and absorbent paper used by geishas for over 300 years to keep their skin flawless, these whisper-thin leaflets remove excess oil and refresh makeup without leaving a powdery finish. Dry skin types can apply the papers to prime skin, removing excess moisturizer before foundation. In my book, that makes them the perfect gift for just about anyone. And so (spoiler alert!), I’ll be giving them to quite a few of my girls. It doesn’t hurt that shipping and gift wrapping is always free. Choose from the original larger size, new evening clutch-sized, or one of the gift sets—ideal for bridal parties, hostess gifts, or stocking stuffers!  xo -Bets
