Like I said last week, I really enjoy when bloggers share products they love! I feel like we’re all friends in Blogland, so often times I 100% trust your recommendations when it comes to things I know nothing about. That being said, can you believe that Christmas is in 9 days? If you’re anything like me, you are basically done with your Christmas gifts, but you’re still scrambling for the stocking stuffers! So today, I am sharing a few small gift ideas that would be perfect for Christmas stockings!
*Hint Hint Santa – I would love to see any of the following items in my own stocking!*
For Clean Eaters: I was over the moon excited when I learned that Tessemae’s now offers their dressings in pouches! GUYS THIS IS HUGE! We can now partake in salads without carrying a flask full of our homemade dressings!
For Festive Gals: In an attempt at saving some of our dollar bills, I have cut mani’s and pedi’s out of my life temporarily. (Also, I’m still on the fence about whether or not nail salons are good for preggo mammas.) I love the quality and colors that Essie provides. If Santa left me these festive holiday Essie polishes, maybe along side of a nail file and some hand cream – I would be a happy girl.
For Anyone: Every year Santa brings us one thing that we all anxiously scratch at… Virginia Lottery Scratcher tickets. Is this a tradition for other families? Or is this just a Benji-Household Stocking Stuffer? Along with 5 scratcher tickets, Santa gives each of us a penny to do the scratching with. It’s so much fun, but we are all still waiting for the year when someone wins something more than a couple of dollars!
For the Furbabes: Cats, dogs or any other furbabes! Santa treats them well in our household too! Think about cute toys like these Felt Target Cat Toys (that could easily be a DIY project) or easy, paleo puppy treats! (My holiday puppy treats will be on the blog later this week so stay tuned!)
For Foodie Bloggers: Sure, an entire set of flatware would be great but why would anyone want one single serving of flatware?? Because she is a food blogger and snaps pictures of everything she cooks/eats/creates/throws together in the kitchen. These Rose Gold utensils are absolutely swoon-worthy. Please Santa, please! Too big to fit in the stocking while in their box? Take them out and tie them together with a pretty red or green bow. Again, please Santa, please!
For Mom: Get creative with a scented, beautiful diffuser. Different from normal diffusers, Chando diffusers are little works of art in themselves. Each diffuser features a porcelain flower that blossoms out of the bottle to emit the scent of your choice. I have found that these are perfect little decorations for around the house, or even in the car!
Back to the Basics For the Whole Fam: It’s time to stock up on the essentials… or at least the travel size of our essentials. Santa always leaves us Burt’s Bees, Toothpaste, Floss, a Nail Clipper (I have a trillion but always seem to lose them… Santa gets me!) and something sweet and usually unhealthy. All simple, but all very useful.
For Those Who Appreciate Classics: Lastly, stick with the classics. It may not be extremely exciting to the kiddos, but traditions have to start somewhere! Clementine Oranges are perfect for the boot of a stocking. Or pecans. Or heck, I guess a lump of coal.
What does Santa leave in your stocking every year? Is there one particular thing that you look forward to seeing in your stocking every Christmas morning?
