Holiday Gift Ideas for Stocking Stuffers

The holiday season is our favorite time of the year!  We've been working on our Holiday Gift Guide since August. The list below contains our favorite stocking stuffer ideas that we think that your family will love too!

Block Island Organics offers trendy skincare products such as the Organic Revitalizing Night Cream that has the best rating of a '1' in the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Database.  Let's start with an overview of the product.  The Organic Revitalizing Night Cream is packed with antioxidants like vitamin C and E, this organic cream helps nourish and replenish skin.  Vitamin C is known for its anti-aging properties and a recent study by Yale University dermatologists suggests vitamin E protects against the effects of sun exposure long after sundown. Featuring gentle botanicals such as cocoa butter, calendula, rosehip, avocado, aloe vera, jojoba, blueberry and more; it revitalizes all skin types. This fabulous night cream is luxurious and works wonders overnight.  Even better is that the brand is dedicated to using high quality and safe ingredients.  Personally, I've used the EWG Skin Deep database for over 15 years to look up the ratings of my skincare products.  Block Island Organics is one of the very few brands that I've come across where every single product listed in their database has the absolute best rating of a '1'.  That is a big accomplishment since I think that all of us want safe and effective products that don't contain questionable ingredients.  Visit Block Organics for this fabulous moisturizer and to read about their other wonderful products here!

Happy Yummies Gourmet Gummies are a fun stocking stuffer that my husband and children love.  My husband loves all of the flavors in the Super Bear Assortment, especially the Pink Grapefruit, Mango, and Watermelon. My children love all of the flavors and practice counting them. They even enjoy trading the different colors which is fun for my youngest son who is learning colors and counting. They look forward to them in their stockings every year! is the ultimate source for the best Ugly Christmas sweaters, pajama jumpsuits, lounge pants, and Leggings for the holidays!  Not only are they a one-stop stop for your festive holiday clothing, but the quality is excellent and they have competitive prices. We recommend their leggings and lounge pants for unique stocking stuffers. Roll them into a cylinder shape and wrap them before inserting them into stockings. They will provide nice support for the center of stockings. 

The fabulous designs are sure to make your gift recipient smile. They will probably even wear them for the rest of the day! Personally, I have the Gingerbread Man Leggings and my husband has the soft Star Wars Yoda Logo Christmas Lounge Pants.  Visit!

Welly offers trendy tins of first aid supplies that are perfect for stocking stuffers and teacher gifts. This brand is from serial entrepreneur Eric Ryan who was behind the Method brand of eco-friendly household products and the Olly brand of vitamins. It's easy to notice that he creates trendier versions of products that we love. I'm excited about his latest creation of the Welly line of products. Welly uses premium quality materials for their first aid supplies. They also stand out thanks to the vibrant designs on the bandages and tins. Their bandages come in fabulous prints with everything from monsters and unicorns for children to tropical patterns and more for tweens, teens, and adults.  I love that the bandages and ointments fit into decorative tins that are easy to stash in bags, desk drawers, glove boxes, sports bags, and more.  You will find their products at Target and on the Welly website.

bnutty offers gourmet peanut butters that come in unique flavors. You may have heard of this brand on Taste of Home, QVC, and other outlets.  I love gourmet peanut butters and this is my favorite brand. When I was pregnant with my oldest son, my husband wanted to splurge on a nice Christmas gift for me. The only thing that I wanted though was gourmet peanut butter. It was crazy - I was obsessed with gourmet  peanut butter with raspberry, chocolate, and other mix ins.  It's almost a decade later and my gourmet peanut butter cravings have never gone away. We recommend bnutty gourmet peanut butters for gifts (12 ounces) and stocking stuffers (2 ounces). Some of our favorites include Irresistible Pretzel, Blissful Blueberry, Totally Toffee, Pumpkin Spice, Joyful Cranberries, and Cinnamon Sugar Cookie. Visit bnutty!

Birchbox offers a monthly subscription box that is packed with generously sized samples from top beauty brands. I've been a member for ten months and love it.  Each month, they provide a few options for your monthly box, including either (a) choose one of three samples and they will customize the rest of your box with surprises, (b) choose one of three curated boxes where you will know the contents ahead of time, (c) choose the full size product of the month, (d) trade your box for points, i.e., store credit, or (e) let them completely surprise you with a box.   You'll notice that there is a lot of flexibility which is nice with an annual subscription. I usually choose (a) or (b) because I always see at least one sample or an entire box that I fall in love with when I browse the monthly options.  If you are wondering about the surprises, Birchbox has a customization engine that considers your preferences through a survey that you take when you sign up and then how you rate samples that you have tried throughout the year. I think that they have caught on that I am obsessed with good quality skincare products and haircare products.  

The boxes above are great example. The first box (from October) contains deluxe samples of Love of Color Liquid Shimmer Shadow in Moonlight, Model Co Matte Lip Creme in Creme de Nude, Dr. Jart+ Cicpair Tiger Grass Calming Gel Cream, Kiehl's Youth Dose Eye Treatment, amika Supernova Moisture and Shine Cream, and NatureLab Tokyo Perfect Shine Oil Mist.   The second box (from this month) contains deluxe samples of ACURE Seriously Soothing Blue Tansy Night Oil, Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner, Wander Beauty Mile High Club Volume and Length Mascara, Sunday Riley A+ High Does Retinoid Serum, Doucce Luscious Lip Stain in Holiday Getaway, and Juliette Has a Gun not a perfume eau de parfum.  Personally, I look forward to my box every month and it always makes my day to have fabulous surprises to work into my beauty routine. Visit Birchbox!

Milk + Sass is a rising indie beauty brand that believes in beauty without borders. After all, a good hair day is a universal celebration.  They offer fantastic hair products that are both practical and adorable for stocking stuffers. First, their iconic macaron-inspired travel sized detangling brushes are popular for $12.99. The Sugar Twists are really nice because they offer good support without tugging on hair and look cute. They retail at $7.99 for a 6-pack and come in a variety of colors. The Milk for Hair is nice for detangling and minimizing frizz. It's a particularly nice hair product for Texans, especially when the humidity is high. Visit Milk + Sass!

Care Market Care Market's 24k Gold Under Eye Treatment Patches are a fun gift idea. Who doesn't want to go for the gold? These trendy eye treatment patches sooth the area under your eyes and are having a moment of popularity! They are available on Amazon with Free Shipping for Prime Members.

Zizzybe bags are an eco-friendly stocking stuffer. They are great for traveling or to use for storing everyday items. They are washable and see through with a kid-friendly and durable zippler. The easy hang loop is convenient when we travel. It holds 6+ pounds.  This is a company that focuses on quality. They offer a lifetime replacement guarantee. The person who recommended these to me said that she has had her Zizzybe bags for 7 years and that they are still going strong.

Luster 2 Minute White Dental Whitening Treatment and Refill Kit is a nice little kit with two easy steps that whitens teeth up to six shades in three days. My husband and I tested this kit and absolutely loved it, especially since it didn't require messy trays or strips. It was really convenient and the results were fabulous! You'll find it at major retailers such as Walmart, Amazon, and more.

Yomms Pecans are popular stocking stuffers for Texans.  Many Texans enjoy pecan pie during the holidays, serve bowls of pecans at holiday parties, and place bags of pecans in stockings. We love Yomms Pecans for stockings because they are extra special thanks to delicious flavors such as Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt, Milk Chocolate, Coco Twist (roasted and sprinkled with coconut), Chili Lime, and more!  My family looks forward to them every year.
