I’m not a traditional person by any means, but when it comes to the holidays, I adore the traditions that give me something to look forward to each year. One of my favorite parts about Christmas is the tradition of stockings. So many people get caught up in gifts and presents under the tree, so stocking gift-giving is an unexpected and light-hearted way to approach a very imposing holiday.
I personally, always shop for stocking stuffers right before Christmas (because, procrastination). I always go to Gordmans for this because they have such a vide variety of items at great price points. I never leave empty handed. I like to focus on things that spoil the people in my life. Here are my go-to’s and why:
Idea #1: A Candle
Especially in the winter, when many of us are forced to stay indoors, a candle can be the perfect morale boost. Plus, they are pretty (always a plus). They also are really universal. You can gift it to your sister, mother, grandpa. it is also a neutral gift for co-workers.
Idea #2: A Makeup Bag
This is a great stocking stuffer for the person who is always on the go or who is a beauty lover (many times, they are one in the same). Add a few goodies inside or add a handwritten note, like, “Have fun in Paris this spring!”
Idea #3: Bath Bombs
This is great for the hardworking mom or businesswoman that never takes time for herself. It’s almost like giving her excuse to pour herself a glass of wine, draw a bath and relax. Isn’t that the best gift?!
Idea #4: Lotion
Since it’s consumable, lotion is always a safe bet. I love the smaller ones that come in a kit, like this one. That way she can pick her favorite scents and take them on travels, put one in her car, another in her bag, etc. Especially in the winter when yours hands tend to get dry. We use lotion like crazy at Everly HQs, because we are always taking pictures of our hands for customers.
Rings *my favorite*, coffee or tea, coffee mugs, travel-size perfume, mini champagne bottles, jewelry trays, hair products, nail polish and cute pens/notebooks.
