As a busy mom I know that I will be waiting until the last possible second to buy stocking stuffers. With my schedule (especially during the holiday season!), it’s just inevitable.
I’m going to be honest here…one year I completely forgot and had to scavenge around in the house. Thankfully, the kids didn’t seem to mind (we won’t talk about how disappointed hubby was that year).
This year, I plan to be a bit more focused and to plan accordingly by making time during the week to get some healthy stocking stuffer items before Christmas Eve.
If you’re in the same boat, don’t worry, you still have a few more days and an awesome guide to last-minute stocking stuffers!
Fruit is always a good idea. You can choose your child’s favorite fresh fruit, choose a healthy fruit leather, or even some favorite freeze dried Snackies. Single pieces or fruit strips are great, and I like to wrap each individual piece because I love to watch my kids open each one and savor it.
Know a makeup junkie? There are some gorgeous neutral glosses that will fit perfectly, plus, they never contain anything you don’t want on (or in) your body.
For the prince or princesses in your life, how about some Piggy Paint? These adorable polishes are as natural as dirt, and thankfully are also non toxic and odorless, so you don’t have to worry about any nail-biters. Plus, they come in cute and trendy colors.
Does your family use drink coasters? These awesome reclaimed wood coasters are sourced from urban trees that have fallen or been cut down, and they last!
Plus, you could easily turn them into a DIY game of tic-tac-toe with some paint.
Reusable dryer balls are the perfect stocking stuffer for the mom in your life. They are inexpensive and just all around pretty awesome. Many can be sprayed with her favorite essential oil (mine is lavender), and they are better for the environment, the dryer, and even your health.
A collapsible water bottle is a great gift for the water drinker in your life.
These awesome bottles can collapse to fit into a cargo pocket or purse so that they can be held onto easily until they’re able to be refilled. If you have someone who is constantly traveling these bottles are amazing, and definitely, need to be in their stocking (they’ve saved my sanity more than once).
Do you have an activist on your list? You can find so many great charities to donate to, in honor of the person you are wanting to stuff their stocking.
Most of us enjoy and need coffee in our lives, so why not a travel mug that doubles as a coffee press? Enjoy a single-serving of French Press coffee or loose leaf tea wherever you are.
I love my exercise time, but who loves it when your earphones go slapping you in the face when you are getting your sweat on? No one, that’s who!
Gift these awesome bluetooth headphones that won’t become a hot mess when you do.
