Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas

Christmas is almost here! It’s down to the wire now. Time to get those stocking stuffers before Christmas arrives! This is the last mad dash of Christmas shopping before this whole season is over.

I’ve had a few setbacks this month – my car decided to stop running a week and a half ago, so there went all my Christmas shopping money into the car. And, I walked up a small steep hill and ended up re-triggering the pain I’ve been having in my SI joint. Like, really bad. Almost took myself to the hospital Friday night the pain got so bad and none of my pain killers at home were working to get rid of it. Now that pain is going away again, I can get back going and gather the rest of my stocking stuffers. Makes it hard to do Christmas shopping when you can’t get out there to do it. Thank goodness for Amazon and online shopping in general, ammirite?

If you are like me, you’re probably working on stocking stuffer gift ideas now. There’s always candy to put in those stockings, but you don’t want a whole stocking full of candy – or do you? Yum. But just think of the kids hyped up on sugar if you do just that. So I’ve gathered together a few more non-candy ideas for you to help finish up your holiday shopping.

Happy shopping everyone! Just think, one week and all the Christmas craziness will be over for another year.

Gloves, hats and scarves fit in stockings pretty well for any age group.

For kids, there are so many cool little toys you can put in stockings as well, but what about for older kids – teens, tweens, and adults? Finger yoga, anyone? I thought that was pretty cute. Not sure if my fingers really need to do yoga, but cute all the same.

Or a Batman multi tool for the guys.

For women and teenage girls, make-up and nail polish or earrings are a fun and easy thing to add.

Belts can be easily rolled up and tucked into a stocking for guys, or wallets.

Fidget spinners were really popular this year and would make a great gift to tuck into a stocking – I ran across a fun one for girls with lip gloss in the ends of the spinners.

Powder puff pom poms are still going strong as well – whether on top of a hat or just a key chain pom handbag charm to attach to your purse.

I personally love the cute vintage-y toy gifts out there, but am almost wondering if the younger generation would even appreciate them or if they would be a better gift to give to an adult for nostalgia’s sake, like this cute vintage robot toy. What do you think?

How to style your summer clothes for cold weather

Ever wanted to bring that wonderful summer style you love into fall or winter, but it’s too cold to wear it when the weather changes? Here are a few tips to on how to style your summer favs for fall and winter instead of pushing them to the back of the closet until the spring thaw begins. Hint, it’s all about the layers…


Black and white and silver all over


Layer up. Add scarves, coats, boots, hats, tights – whatever keeps you warm! I chose to wear a sleeveless maxi dress and didn’t remember to put on a pair of tights. But baby, it’s getting cold out there, so I could have used those tights as the weather is cooling down now in Oregon. Not quite winter weather yet, but upper 40’s are still a bit cold.

Wear a sweater over top of a dress so it looks more like a skirt – adds extra warmth and creates a new fall/winter look.

Depending on the dress, you can wear your dress as a tunic with leggings underneath + boots for added warmth. Or skinny jeans. Any pants that aren’t too bulky will work just fine.

Wear a long sleeved shirt underneath a sleeveless dress. I have one I was looking at thinking it would look good with the new ‘in’ trend of wearing shirts under sleeveless dresses or tops.

Wear a cardigan over the dress with a vest layered over top + tights and boots.

Maxi dresses are great for fall and winter – the longer length equals more warmth.

Wear shorts with thick tights and boots + layers on top for a fun fall look.

Mostly, it’s all about layering – over or under to get the warmth & style you need and want for the colder weather.
