Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers

December 12, 2015 1 Comment

happy holidays! (1)

stocking stuffers

 

Stocking stuffers are always fun to pick out! I have a simple rule – they must be gifts that will make the recipient smile. That should be the rule for all gifts of course, but sometimes it’s nice to receive necessities, or practical gifts. Stocking stuffers should be “little luxuries” or novelty items.

I’ve picked out a few here, to give you some ideas!

Clockwise starting from the top lefthand corner.

Always give a little something shiny! In the form of nail polish? Even more fun!
I once had a manicure done in this colour, and I’ve been eyeing it ever since. It’s a bit of a splurge for polish, but what a gorgeous colour.

This is a great little gift for the globetrotters in your life! This book is packed full of short trips and weekend getaways. The best part is they’re all close to home (if home is in North America) so even if your loved one can’t take any more vacation days, she may be able to squeeze in some of the suggestions listed in this book.

A meaningful piece of jewellery is always appreciated. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but it’s always sweet when there’s some thought behind it. This lovely rose gold piece for example, represents the molecular shape for seratonin, the “feel good” drug in our bodies. I think I could use a little more seratonin pumping through my veins, especially when I’m on the TTC in rush hour. This necklace is the next best thing!

This fluffy key chain is adorable, and ensures that your loved one will never have trouble searching for keys in her gigantic handbag!

Some people are quite particular about scented candles, but I think they make a wonderful gift. The trick is not to pick a scent that’s too overpowering – nothing overly sweet or musky. This True North candle is supposed to be reminiscent of campfires, and contains white birch, and sandalwood. Perfect for cozy nights in!

Treat the man in your life to the perfect shave with this kit by Anthony. There’s a reason it’s constantly sold out at Sephora! The reviews are great – from both men and women. It softens skin and smells great!

I’m a big fan of page-a-day calendars. For the past two years, I’ve had a shoe-a-day calendar on my desk. I actually look forward to changing it every morning, and love glancing at it throughout the day. I think this Mr. Rogers calendar is so sweet. It might seem like a gag gift to some, but the quotes are simple and inspirational, and sure to brighten anyone’s day 🙂

P.S. a little blurb on Mr. Rogers, worth reading

One of the best gifts I ever received was a beautiful stamp that says “Best Wishes”. I use it on all my letters, birthday cards, etc. It’s actually quite hard to find pretty stamps these days! This one from Indigo is pretty amazing, and its “Carpe Diem” message could also be used on a variety of stationary. Grab it before it’s gone!
