Welcome to Metropolitan Mama's BIG LIST of the best stocking stuffers for moms. Included on this list are small items that will be appreciated by the women who love and serve us unconditionally every day. Whatever your mom's interests or personality, you're sure to find some charming, unique, and practical ideas on this page. I've tried to include a variety of ideas - accessories, decor, snacks, beauty products, and practical things that will actually be used all year long. I will update this page yearly with new and unique ideas.
Magnets are useful and can be super pretty too! Why use an ugly magnet on the refrigerator when you can add some beauty to the kitchen instead?
If you've have had several children, there's a good chance you now struggle with bladder leakage when you laugh, jump on trampolines with your kids, work out aggressively, etc. Thank goodness for Speax (by Thinx)! Speax are absorbent underwear for bladder leakage that replace panty liners. Wear, wash, and wear again - just like your regular underwear. These provide great peace of mind for everyday wear and/or any number of athletic pursuits. There are five different styles available: hiphuggers, bikini, hi-waist, French cut, and thong.
As a mom of four, I'm all about ease when it comes to make-up. That's why lip gloss is one of my go-to's. With a quick swipe, you get both color and moisture. New for holiday 2019, Babo Botanical is pleased to introduce the Nutri-Shine Luminizer Vegan Lip Gloss Gift Set. The four glosses in this set are hydrating & dye free, enriched with coconut oil, cocoa butter, and soothing organic calendula. The four included colors are: Nude Pearl, Brilliant Guava, Jewel Hibiscus, and Radiant Mulberry.
I discovered CoTZ this past year and have worn it every week since! My favorite is the Face Prime & Protect (Tinted), followed closely by Flawless Complexion (Tinted). The cream is sheer and lightweight, easy to smooth into skin and then vanishing - leaving behind a gorgeous and subtle summery glow. This is an excellent alternative to thick foundations especially since CoTZ sunscreens are free of oils, preservatives, paragons, gluten, and phthalates. CoTZ literally stands for "contains only titanium zinc" - brilliant! Also: note that the tinted formulas are easy for gifting because they work for most skin tones.
If you know a woman who has naturally curly hair, pick up a tub of Kinky Curly's Curling Custard. This stuff is a miracle worker for curly hair! Simply spread some through wet hair, scrunch, and you'll love the result - defined spirals without frizz! This is an especially great pick for moms who prefer low-maintenance and 5-minute beauty solutions.
