Raise your hand if you still have gifts to get for friends and family. I have both of my hands up.
If you're like me and forgot (or spent too long deciding), here is a collection of items to pop in the stockings when nobody is looking. They all are under $25 and each is on Amazon Prime - so take advantage of that free two-day shipping!
Psst! If you don't have Prime, get it here to get that free expedited shipping, among other perks.
Chocolate: This is one of my favorite kinds of chocolate. It’s perfectly dark and the proceeds benefit endangered species habitat rehabilitation.
Tea towels: Fresh tea towels make such a difference! No matter how often they're cleaned, the old ones always get dingy, so give the gift of fresh 100% cotton ones.
Candle: Oakmoss and Amber is one of my favorite candle scents. You really can’t go wrong gifting a candle. It's the perfect gift for picky people (guilty!) because they won't feel obligated to keep it forever since it's meant to be used up.
Soap: For your friends that you’re trying to give a hygiene hint to, or the ones that like to put pretty hand soap in the guest bathroom.
Paint set: Perfect for kids or adults, there’s endless creative opportunity if you gift open-ended art supplies.
Scrabble: Give a gift that you can open at the end of the day for some family game time.
Portable charger: There’s always that one friend with the “sorry, my phone died” excuse. This battery backup is for them.
Scarf: Anything that keeps loved ones cozy is a no-brainer gift for the winter season. This one comes in more colors!
Planter: I don't know anyone that can't find a use for a little planter for indoor flora - especially a cool geometric one.
Agate bookends: Pretty bookends dress up any bookshelf. Great for the bookworm, or that person that needs some filler on their empty shelves.
Copper mugs: The mule is a classic cocktail for these copper mugs, but any kind of bevvy could be enjoyed in these pretty vessels.
Cookie cutters: Have you seen how gingerbread cookie cutters can make reindeer cookies? I'm a fan of things that have two uses.
Measuring spoons: Who says utilitarian tools in the kitchen have to be boring? Spoons in a pretty copper finish make such a difference.
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: With the gifting and nesting of the holiday season, I'm anxious to purge unnecessary things in my home. Here's to spring (nay, winter) cleaning!
Coasters: There are fancier ones out there, but I like a simple felt coaster. It works well, and isn't too flashy.
