If you're looking for some fun, fabulous, + functional stocking stuffer ideas for her, you've come to the right place.
Here are five ideas to get your wheels turning:
If you only have one more stocking stuffer to get, THIS should be it. At first glance, it looks kind-of cheesy and informercial-ish. But I can assure you that these "magnetic organizers for your home" are all that and a bag of chips (Did I just say that? Writing at 1:22am is probably not the best idea).
Really, though. These high quality plastic containers that magnetically adhere to the inside of your steel-framed medicine cabinet door are BRILLIANT. My husband actually loves them too because my make-up is no longer scattered all over the bathroom counter. My lipsticks, mascaras, and brushes are all lined up neatly inside our medicine cabinet - within quick reach, yet out-of-sight.
If you don't get some in your stocking, you might just want to buy some for yourself. They are an innovative organization tool that is ideal for any woman.
Skin Food by Weleda ($10 for 1-ounce)
I wouldn't be surprised if this rich, 100% organic "hydrating cream" (a fancy term for lotion) ends up on Oprah. I used it liberally on my legs, arms, elbows, and hands...with great results. It's thick and luxurious, yet it doesn't leave a residue. I just used up the last of my tube last night and I'm missing it already.
Weleda also has a wonderful Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream that is great for tired, dry, winter-y hands. I've been using it nightly.
Hair Accessories by Goody
Goody sells hair ties, barrettes, headbands, scarves, and hair styling tools. The collections span a variety of distinct "personalities" - there are products for sporting events, a night out, or a cruise vacation...all at affordable prices and all available at your nearby grocery/discount store.
Maraschino Cherries by Tillen Farms ($6.99/14-ounce jar)
The past few days my 3-year-old has been asking for "a cherry, please." She is referring to Tillen Farms' Merry Maraschino Cherries - cherries that are completely free of artificial colors, artificial flavors, sulfites, and preservatives.
Now that I've had these cherries, I think I might "turn my nose up" a bit at the fake kind you buy in the grocery store aisles. These are much better - yet they still are sublimely sweet. Perfect for making shirley temples and decadent desserts.
Sonicare FlexCare+ by Philips
I tried a manual toothbrush and then I tried Philips' Sonicare FlexCare+...and there is NO COMPARISON. When you brush with a Sonicare, your teeth feel smooth and slippery and sparkly. I roll my tongue across my teeth and it feels like I just went to the dentist. No wonder my dentist recommended this brush to me!
With its built-in timer functionality, you can be assured that you brushing long enough. It's also rechargeable, which makes maintenance a breeze. Plus, it comes with a UV brush head sanitizer that kills up to 99% of bacteria and viruses on the brush head (germaphobes, celebrate!).
Despite the steep cost ($190), I often recommend the brush to friends & family because I'm convinced that it may actually be CHEAPER in the long run. The question to ask yourself is this: wouldn't you rather pay more now to avoid costly dental check-ups and operations in the future? I know that I would - not only to save money, but also to save my mouth any unneeded agony.
