Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers

Some people say gift gifting is hard, but to be honest, I struggle the most with stocking stuffers. Not only do I get stuck in a price quandary, but then I get stuck with the size quandary too. I try really hard to keep stocking stuffers below $30 and small in size. That way, they aren't like a real gift that belongs under the tree, and I can also get them to fit within an actual stocking.

If you have a beauty guru on your hands, don't underestimate the power of the travel sized sections at Sephora, Ulta or Target. There are some fantastic products that aren't budget breaking and fit in an oversized sock hanging from your mantle.

Also, Target's Dollar Spot is fantastic for pens, pencils, notepads, sticky notes, stationery, and washi tape; each in their own make great stocking stuffers.

Holiday Cheer


There are many Christmas traditions I enjoy each year, but holiday cards are definitely one of my favorites! I love taking the time to find the perfect card that fits my style and personality, adding personal notes to everyone inside and then sealing it with cute tape and a custom stamp.

There really are no rules to sending holiday cards (and yes, I checked Emily Post). I like trying to get my cards out around the middle of the month, but there is no set time to send holiday cards. Not one for mailing cards? Paperless Post is a great way to email your holiday cards. They have top stationery lines, you can personalize them and send them to your loved ones without any hassle.

Gift Guide: The Bibliophile

The bibliophile cherishes stories of old and new. They love the smell of old books, but they love the ease of eBooks as well. Every good book is accompanied by a snuggly chair, a cup of tea or coffee and a candle to make the room feel a bit more relaxed. The book lover doesn't mind serving as a library for friends, but always make sure their name is stamped in the front cover, so they get their favorite books back.
