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?

To reflect or not to reflect…

As the year ends, tradition dictates we all reflect on the past year. I really don’t feel like it. My wonderful job as an Influencer ended, my marriage is failing, a friend committed suicide. Somehow I look back on the end of the year and still don’t know where my future is, so I really don’t want to keep reflecting on the past year and the way it’s ending. Instead, I bolster my spirits finding new sayings to pin on Pinterest onto my Words of Wisdom board that encourage me to go forth boldly into the great unknown of a new year. Does anyone else do that? I’m sure I’m not the only one who pins things to encourage myself, whether it’s sayings or food I think I’m going to make, projects I think I’m going to do, things that make me laugh, things I want, places I want to go… That’s the draw of Pinterest. An online pin board to pin all of our hopes, ideas and dreams on. Because in the end, our hopes & dreams are what keep us going. For me, I’m ready to throw 2015 into the trash and step forth into the new year and whatever it has to offer me!
