These are a few of my favorite things: Stocking Stuffers


In my family Santa still brings my brothers and I all stockings stuffed.  Stuffed.  And yes I do still believe in Santa; or maybe it's just more of the magic that Santa Claus and Christmas can bring into a child's life.  I love it.  But if questioned I will state my belief in good Ole St. Nick just in case he's listening. ;) So of course I jumped at the chance at linking up again with Elise and Jen; and adding another chance for all my loved ones and readers to get some great ideas for stocking stuffers.

These are a few of my favorite things: Stocking Stuffers

For a College Girl:

One|| You can never go wrong with any form of money.  Gas cards.  Gift cards.  iTunes cards.  Even cold hard cash is always excepted and loved.  

TWO|| Monogrammed Croakies--only 15 bucks @ CherryTreeLaneDesign on Etsy.

THREE|| Jewelry of any kind--specifically these baseball earrings.  Or if your sweetheart has a pandora bracelet; they have so many charms for every occasion.  

FOUR|| Glitter iPhone skin--I'm in love.  Found here @ HVDecal on Etsy.

FIVE|| Boot Socks.  Tribal print or with a cute little bow these socks can spice up any outfit.  Love.

SIX||  Leggings.  I have been wanting fleece lined leggings for a while--gotta keep my booty warm on these cold wintery days but don't wanna leave the comfort of my beloved leggings.  Solution:  Fleece Lined Leggings.  Can be found at a Rue21 near you or here.  I am also loving these aztec leggings; but I don't think I'd ever have the confidence to wear them.  

SEVEN|| I don't care what anyone says! you can never have too many nail polish colors.  A girl needs options for crying out loud.  These colors are perfect for the holiday season.

EIGHT|| fuzzy socks.  Keep your little piggies warm in a pair of Christmasy socks or supporting your man's team (Go Gators!). And yes, I am that girl that simply roots for the team my other half loves JUST because he does.  Why not he's happier when they win.  Common sense here people.

For the Littles:
My cousin has three of the most adorable kids on the planet.  Not biased or anything.  And I'm struggling this year to decide what I should get the two youngest--2 year old and 5 month old boys.  Here are a couple ideas I've come up with but I'm mainly hoping this link up will give me some great ideas!


ONE // Christmas Pajamas.  Little ones always look adorable in there festive pj's  running around everywhere.  

TWO // "Learner Cups" and in English that means the cups you use to transition from bottle to sippy cups so there tiny little fingers can get used to holding them.

THREE // Toy trucks.  Original I know.  But they love their trucks and I found a felt one for the baby.  It would come in handy considering the toddler loves throwing.  Can you say terrible twos angel?  

FOUR // I think it's uber important for the little tots to be exposed to books right away.  I'm talking fresh out the oven.  God Loves Me More Than That.  The Last Christmas Cookie.  The Christmas Wish.  Fancy Nancy.  Christmas in the Manger.  God Gave us Christmas.  The list could go on and on...  

For the man in your life:
If your husband/fiancé/boyfriend/dad/brother is anything like my other half then when asked the question "What do you want for Christmas this year?"  He probably responds with a shrug and mumbles "I don't know."  Gee thanks dude!  Glad I asked--I now know exactly what to get you.  Ugh, the struggle.  Here are a few ideas to help with your struggle of what to get for the men in your life.


ONE -- A camouflage koozie.  Something to keep any beverage cold in a manly fashion.  And other than I just paired the words manly and fashion in the sentence--what guy wouldn't want this.

TWO -- Toboggan.  Keeps his shaved head warm.  And he can support his favorite team while doing so.  Under Armour and Nike are huge hits for my man and I'm sure most guys would agree that's the way to go.  Plus, they can be easily rolled up and stuffed into your man's stocking.

THREE -- Chapstick.  Thomas refuses to buy Chapstick.  But he will put my Chapstick on.  (I may or may not regret putting that on here later.)  Why I'll never understand.  His lips get chapped just like yours and mine.  So do him the favor and buy him his own--just make sure it's not Very Berry Cherry with sparkles.

FOUR -- Gift Cards.  Enough said.  Academy just happens to be his most recent favorite store.  And he can pick out whatever he's been dying to own but for some reason didn't tell you when you asked. I repeat: UGH.

FIVE -- Headphones & Watches.  I and love that they are available in the two things I do know Thomas likes: Camouflage and the Gators. He on the other hand probably will not be as excited as me.  Oh well...

SIX -- Wallet.  Give him something to hold all that Christmas money.  Plus its something he would use every day--getting your money's worth is always a-okay in my book.  




Happy Tuesday Y'all!
