Sock It To ‘Em

You’re passionate every year about stuffing the Christmas stockings with loads of delightful little gifts for your wonderful family, but with less than three weeks before the big day, you don’t see how you’re going to get it done! It’s easy to shop online for the big presents, but when it comes to the smaller goodies, you’d prefer to see what strikes your fancy in the shops. But oh, who needs the holiday traffic and crowds?

Fret not! The majority of us have a store within five miles of our homes where we can find unique and affordable gifts that will earn each of us the Stocking Stuffer of The Year award. Better yet, you won’t have to brave the madness at the mall, where you leave with a giant headache.

Before I tell you which store I mean, let me show you the stocking stuffers I discovered there this weekend.

Anything but ho-hum gifts, they include tech gadgets, trendy beauty products, practical tools for the house that no one should live without, and fashionable accessories. I was in and out in about 45 minutes, found gifts for the ladies, men and kids I love, and spent just about $100!

Everyone deserves to have their very own monogrammed stocking, including you!

Silky soft stocking from Merry Brite is bright, beautiful and big enough to stuff with all the special gifts you chose with love for the ones you love.

My daughter will enjoy using these practical skin care products quality ingredients. And the packaging is so elegant, it looks like it came from a fancy department store.

e.l.f. Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths are infused with aloe vera to help hydrate and moisturize the skin; the Lip Exfoliator, with Vitamin E, shea butter, grape and jojoba oil and avocado, helps remove dried, chapped skin.

My sister often asks me if I have nail clipper.  Now she’ll have her own.

One of my best friend’s always gets cold feet. No more. She’ll love lounging around the house in these.

3 Pack Cozy Socks made with super soft yarn and a comfy stretch, and they’re machine washable. Love the patterns and colors.

Perfect for my hard-working nephew who relished relaxing to the sounds of his favorite music.

HD Wireless Headphones with Bluetooth from SoundLogic with built-in microphone, padded foam earpads, volume control and FM radio tuner. This stocking stuffer also would make a full-fledged gift.                                                             

One for each stocking, of course.

Chocolates from the best brands in the business, including Lindt, Godiva and Ferrero, with flavors from salted pretzel to caramel with sea salt.

My son is (finally) starting to cook and do handy things around the house, so it’s time he owns these.

Helping Hand 12-foot tape measure is easy to read, locks into place and has a spring action return and a no-slip rubber case. Bradshaw stackable measuring set in sturdy plastic will hang out neatly in my son’s gadget draw, ready to measure up to his needs.

My 4 ½-year-old grandson, Primo, can’t wait for Christmas. Who can blame him!

Primo can draw, trace, and play games on The Art Projector from Discovery, which can project artwork onto his bedroom wall or ceiling up to 20 times the original size.
