The presents under the tree are festive and bright, but I’m ALL about the stockings! In my family we make a big deal out of stockings. We take our time drinking coffee, pulling out our trinkets once at a time and ooh and awe over Santa’s generosity for hours. This year, I thought the big guy might like a couple tips on how to stuff those socks! Here are my tips for how to pick the best stocking stuffers.
The Gift That Keeps on Giving (Add a Subscription):
One of my very, very favorite gifts Santa is bringing my loved ones this year is Art Crate – a monthly art subscription service. Think of it as “The Birchbox for Art”. So, how does it work? Simply sign-up online, complete their design survey, and each month your personal curator will ship one hand-selected art print to your door. It’s the easiest way to get inspired and make your home look amazing – isn’t the piece of art they sent me incredible? Use CHRISTMAS20 to receive 20% off your first month. Add a couple fun nail polishes in their favorite hue for an extra colorful experience.
Choose a Theme (British breakfast):
I’m all about the “themed” gifts this year – especially for stockings! Santa has been bringing my mom a themed stocking for years, and it’s one of my favorite traditions. How fun would a British breakfast stocking be? A fun mug, a spot of tea and the best biscuits around? Beats coal any day of the week!
Dollars spent with local businesses stay in the community at a much higher percentage than dollars spent at big box stores, so it’s not a stretch to say that you’ll be spreading joy in stockings all across town by shopping local! With craft breweries popping up all over the US, and boutique stores on ever corner, it won’t be hard to find amazing goodies made with local love.
Give the Gift of Me Time:
During the holidays’ time is a precious as frankincense and myrrh, so it’s always fun to give the gift of a little alone time. Does your husband love to golf? Put some tees, golf balls and mini bottles (to keep him warm on the course) in his stocking. Let him know he can have a free afternoon at the links on you. Do you know a lady who loves to read a book in some comfy PJs with a glass of wine? Give her everything she needs for a comfy night at home – uninterrupted!
Let me know if you’ve whispered your gift list into Santa’s ear this season. I would love to know what your wishing for! Thanks to Allie from Peachfully Chic, one of Santa’s best helpers, for many of these wonderful treats!
