Good morning, Friends!
It's time for another installment of "A Few of my Favorite Things"
! You can check out the other entries in this series here:
Today we're continuing the series with the next edition: Stocking Stuffers!
This list is a combination of things I would put in the Mr's stocking, things I typically like to receive in my stocking, and things that we both like -- so there's a bit of everything!
Here we go!
1) Lip Products
Cold winter weather means dry skin & chapped lips (boooooooo!), so I always like to keep some sort of chapstick in my purse, my bedside table, my coat pocket -- everywhere! So I love giving/receiving some sort of multi-pack of lip products so that I can keep well stocked! The Mr likes basic Blistex tubes, but I love EOS balms -- especially this limited edition Holiday Trio!
2) Gift Cards
A giftcard is a great gift in a small package -- perfect for a stocking stuffer! The Mr & I like to set a gift limit for our Christmas gifts to each other, and I will often get a giftcard valued at whatever amount I have leftover after buying his main presents -- I know he'll use it! His giftcard of choice: iTunes. Hers: Starbucks. :)
3) Hand Cream
Back to the cold weather! If I leave the house without hand cream, I go slowly crazy throughout the day -- I hate that rough, scratchy feeling of dry skin! So I love having a few options in my bag. For the Mr, I'd get something basic & scent free, but I like something a little fancier that smells delicious! :)
4) Tech Gadget
For a little techie flair, the Mr can always use new earbuds -- he's always either losing the little rubber ear piece, or losing the headphones completely -- anyone else have this problem? Oh well, it makes for an easy gift idea! :) I'd love to get an external/portable battery charger for my phone -- I feel a bit lost if my phone battery dies while I'm out & about, so tossing one of these in my purse would be an easy solution! A great little gift for anyone with a cell phone!
5) Fun Puzzle
I always loved getting some sort of puzzle in my stocking growing up -- whether it's a wooden one, a metal brain teaser, or even a word puzzle book! It's a great thing to "play with" on Christmas day, you know? Plus, if everyone in your family gets a different one, you can swap them around once you've solved yours & share in the fun!
6) Cozy Socks or Slippers
Who doesn't love some cozy footwear? I know I do! I love a pair of thick, fuzzy socks -- you know, the ones that aren't really meant to fit into your shoes & have grippy things on the bottom -- as well as a good pair of moccasin slippers. So cozy!
What's a Christmas stocking without some chocolate? A pretty sad stocking, if you ask me :)
It really could be in any form, but for some reason I associate these Chocolate Oranges with Christmas time -- anyone else? I also love seasonal chocolates, or mint chocolate items. Pretty much anything chocolatey will do :)
I like to put something minty in a stocking as well -- whether it's a traditional candy cane, some gum, or some nice peppermints. It's a bonus if they come in a pretty package like a fancy tin!
9) Something Silly
I always like for there to be something fun & silly in a stocking -- like this mustache keyring that talks to you in a creepy mustache pick-up line voice! Ha! Can't go wrong with a good gag gift :)Tell me:
- What kinds of things do you like to give/receive in your stockings?
Have a great day!
