Stocking Stuffers

One of my favorite things about Christmas are stockings. Santa only does stockings in our house, so the kids ask for one small gift - close to stocking size, and inexpensive. Finding fun, useful items for stockings can be super fun, or super challenging. Here are a few things Santa is loving this year.

For Boys

One of the things I'm most excited about for my son this year is this DIY Comic Book, he's really gotten into drawing this year and I think he's going to love it. Aaron's Thinking Putty is the only slime/putty allowed in my house, it really is the best and least messy option.  And he's getting a head lamp because they are so fun. The one thing he asked Santa for was a grabber. 

My son loves treasure rocks and all things science, these pocket science instruments are awesome. 

For Girls
Oh man, having a daughter is so fun!  Some fun stocking stuffers for girls include, play makeup kit, playfloam pals, water wow! books, and of course she's getting bows! I absolutely love Matilda and Grace, we bought our first bows from this sweet mama over 3 years ago and they stand the test of time.  

Art Gifts
We also love arts and crafts, so they are each getting a few fun things, like Wikki StixKwik Stix, sketch pads, and stickers. 
For the Ladies

These are a few of my favorite things! This unicorn nail file is amazing, I got it 2 years ago and it is still perfect. The Alaska Bear silk pillow cases are just as good as my Slip ones and 1/3 of the price! If you know me, you know I love good skincare. I have tried every eye cream on the market, and every time I try something new, I always come back to this Shiseido Benefiance eye cream - it is unbelievably good. I am also obsessed with Sunday Riley skincare, it is so good! I switched to it last November and cannot believe how good my skin looks - a year later and it is still amazing, unlike other things that only seem to work for a few months. 


My favorite tweezers. The coolest, weirdest, grossest, most amazing foot peel - seriously, your feet will be so amazingly soft, the peeling is gross, but totally worth it.  Another odd, but amazing thing is this Bruder moisturizing eye mask, our optometrist recommended it and it's so good.  Love a good mani & pedi? Olive & June can't be beat! Their polish is the best.

For Guys

This BigFoot Seek and Find is hysterical and fun. These nail clippers are the best! I got my husband a set 2 years ago and he raves about them every single time he uses them! Here are the flat edged option Headlamps are always a fun to have around, and this digital tire pressure gauge is life changing! Seriously it's so amazing and on sale for $12! For a super funny, and totally practical gift, Ballwash is awesome! My husband loves fidget objects and has a tray of them on his desk - this original fidget cube is his favorite, I bought them during the kickstarter for far too much, but he loves them. 


What's a stocking without some fun treats?  My kids love marshmallows and we are huge fans of Smashmallows. If you like sour gummies, these JellyBelly Sour Santas cannot be beat - seriously they are the best, I may have bout 24 bags of them to get me through the year... We also love Kinder Hippos and Kinder Eggs - these Kinder eggs are on sale for $1 an egg which is a great price. My kids love suckers so they will each get a few ZolliPops. The good peanutbutter cups, Tony's Chocolonely (this is one of my all time favorites!)
