A few years ago, Kevin and I started a tradition where we fill each others stockings with little gifts and then exchange them on Christmas morning. Since we open most of our other gifts for one another at the family Christmases at each of our parents’ houses, we like to have something fun to open together first thing. It’s a little way we have found to make Christmas ours without taking anything away from the traditions we want to keep with our families.
Some of the things I always like to receive in my stocking include makeup, jewelry, warm weather accessories, and small home decor items. So, I’ve rounded up my favorite trinkets and tiny treasures that any lady would love to have in her stocking, or wrapped up under the tree.
For warm weather accessories, hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, socks, and earmuffs are always a win in my book. But, I’ve picked out pieces that aren’t your granny’s accessories, they are pretty colors, in luxe fabrics, with trendy details, Like this beanie with multi-colors pom on top; a classic piece with a modern twist. Or these gloves adorned with a contrasting bow and pom-poms, they are chic but playful. And what about these over-sized faux fur earmuffs? They are the perfect upgrade from the pairs your mom made you wear in grade school. Lastly, you all know I love a good scarf, and this muted plaid will be a staple all winter, I mean, grey and blush pink is such a perfect combo, you can’t go wrong.
For jewelry, I am definitely a fan of statement earrings having a moment. I have included 3 different pairs of earrings to make sure every lady is covered. This pair is a subtle but sparkly pair by Kendra Scott. I love the druzy stone paired with rose gold, so pretty. While this pair is a a step up in the drama department from the stud, with a beaded tassel, they can definitely be worn up or down, day to night. They are super versatile and come in 4 colors. Lastly, this thread tassel earring, I have them in 3 colors and absolutely love them! They are super light weight and definitely add some drama to an outfit. Plus, they come in a ton of colors.
Outside of earrings, watches are always a nice Christmas gift. Especially for a spouse or parent. They can be a little pricey, but watches can be a great gift to show appreciation for the role they play in your life. I love this watch with blush pink band and the pearl face, it is really feminine and probably something not in her closet yet. I’m also loving this simple knot bangle. It is a great piece because it can be stacked with other bracelets, be worn alone, or since it is thin, be worn with a watch. One last accessory that will be in high demand as the snow starts to fall? Sunglasses! It seems counter intuitive, but I never leave home without them. Snow glare is real people, and it is the worst. I love the pearl details on this pair, and they are super affordable, only $24!
For face, bath, and body, there are so many great options around the holidays. Lots of companies release limited edition items, as well as gift sets. This Philosophy bath set is a great Christmas gift option because it is a themed set and all the scents are limited edition for the season. Another great gift for any make-up obsessed lady is this marbled beauty blender. I die. Its so cute, only $5, and anything marble is a winner. If the ladies on your list aren’t into a lot of products, this lippie is the perfect gift! It’s a moisturizing lip tint in a nude color. I recently bought one in the color Honey and it is life changing! Snag a bunch and sprinkle them in everyone’s stockings this year. Don’t forget you can top a stocking the way you top an outfit, with perfume. You can never go wrong with a classic and clean scent like this one, plus its 15% off.
For home decor, there are lots of options too, from small photo frames, to mini candles. I love the rose gold container this candle comes it, and the scent is one of my favorites! Another idea for any wine lover is a new stopper, and what’s better than a monogram? This stopper combines both and would be a great addition to any stocking. If you are doing a little theme with your stocking gifts, a wine accessory and candle, pair great with cheeky socks for lounging around the house and a sleep mask to use while pampering. I love this pair of socks, because, hello, brunch. And how pretty is this pink velvet ruffle edged sleep mask, perfect for getting all that beauty sleep.
Rounding out my stocking stuffer ideas are some more sparkly and marble items. Phones now have almost more options for accessories than girls do. Almost. That said, a new phone case and grip, like this case in marble, and this blush grip, would make a perfect pairing and very practical gift for any girl on the go. Sparkles are aplenty on this wallet that has a glitter finish. Another practical gift, that feels special because of the little details, colors, and material. And finally, what girl doesn’t need a little sugar now and then? Include something for her sweet tooth in her stocking like these champagne gummy bears, so fun, and definitely not your kid’s candy.
Thanks for stopping by & happy shopping!
