The Best Holiday Stocking Stuffers



Chocolates are the typical go-to to fill up stockings for the holidays. But why stop there? It’s nice to be surprised with something a little more innovative and exciting in your stocking. These are some of our favorite items to gift this season!


A great way to add some cheer to a stocking is with some alcohol. Half-Seas Cocktail Cans ($16-$20 per 4-pack) are great quality canned sparkling cocktails that come in three flavors — daiquiri, paloma and bramble. They’re sure to add some pizzaz to your holiday celebrations.


The gift everyone wants is ageless skin, am I right? Well, it’s easier to get than you think thanks to EO Products Ageless Skin Care Collection ($150). This handful of products include powerful botanical extracts to help transform your skin. Included in the set are Cleansing Milk, Face Oil (our favorite!), Night Serum, Face Moisturizer, and Exfoliating Scrub. Plus, they smell divine.  



For your favorite gals, sneak a Stowaway Cosmetics The Smoky Eye Set ($49) palette into their stocking. This 3-piece set included Jet Eyeliner, Defined Volume Mascara and an eyeshadow palette with eight shades of soft matte and satin shimmer shadows. Now anyone can be ready for a night out!


Don’t let the cold weather affect your smile. The Balm Squad Gift Set ($25) from Jack Black can take care of that. The balms contain broad-spectrum SPF, antioxidants and skin conditioners and come in Mango & Mandarin, Natural Mint & Shea Butter, Vanilla Mint and Shea Butter & Vitamin E.

828 Family Pack


The 828 Movement is selling bracelets ($30), founded by author Margot Sandy and Spencer Trafton, that honor the past and present fight for equality.  ‘828’ represents August 28th, a date in which many strides were made, in including the abolishment of slavery in the UK (in 1833), the brutal murder of Emmett Till (in 1955), Martin Luther King Jr.’s infamous speech (in 1963), Hurrican Katrina in Louisiana (in 2005), and in 2008, Barack Obama accepted the Democratic nomination for President. The bracelet features 13 metal rings to represent the 13th amendment and an 828 engraved chrome ring. Plus, Fifteen percent of profits are donated to underfunded urban schools in America.


Okay, so we know candy is the traditional stocking stuffer and it’s not really fair to fill a stocking with zero sweets. But elevate them and go for cookies instead of candy. We love Feed Your Soul Bakery’s Ginger Molasses 12 Piece Gift Box ($20)! These tasty cookies are perfect for this time of year and are perfectly chewy and delicious. Twelve cookies might not even be enough!
