As far as presents are concerned, I think I can safely say that stockings are my favorite part of Christmas. I'm a 'little stuff' kind of kid. I love little goodies and things I'll use daily. My mom rocks at stuffing a stocking. Oh, I mean Santa. Santa rocked at stuffing my stocking. And now, 'SANTA' is loving filling stockings at our house. Whether it's your stocking that needs filling or a girlfriend who needs a Christmas happy, here are some NON-ETSY (that's a change, right?) things I would love for Santa to put in my stocking...that is if I were to still get one. Apparently I've become rather naughty in my old age. Bummer.
Anyway, here are ten things I love that you just might love too:
WoodWick candles: Love them. They smell heavenly, and the wood wick actually crackles. It's a nice substitute for those of us who have to meander through winter without a wood burning fireplace.
I love these slippers from L.L. Bean. For one, they come in red, which is always a plus. And two, they don't scream, "I'M WEARING MY SLIPPERS!", and seeing as how I wear my slippers all day every day these days, this would be a plus for me.
I love little notebooks. Seriously, I think I have about ten. They are stuck in every nook and cranny in my house. One lives by the computer, one lives in my car, and one lives in my diaper bag. I use them to help organize my life, store my ideas, and jot down this and thats.
This one, which I happen to love, is from Barnes and Noble.
Beauty and the Beast was my favorite Disney movie growing up. And it's available. We have to have it. Good thing it's already scratched off our list, right?
But, be sure to get yours before Disney locks in the death trap, also known as the dang Disney Vault.
Starbucks: need I say more?
I love scarves. Forget shoes, give me a 'new scarf account'. They are so fun and come in so many options. This one I found at Old Navy, and I love the pattern. There's also a little girl in my house who seems to think scarves as the most awesome thing EVER created. Just throwin' that out there.
Please tell me you've tried this lipgloss from Bath and Body Works. I'm not much of a make-up girl. It's terrible, I know. But give me a little mascara and some lipgloss, and I'm set. And THIS is by far my absolute favorite. It smells AMAZING, lasts a long time, and has the same effect on your breath as a good stick of gum. If you're gonna try anything off of this list, this is the one I suggest.
It's no secret that I'm a coffee fiend. And I love cute cups to help me getting my morning fix. I also love cups with lids....between being a mommy and a teacher, these always come in handy. This one came from a site I love called Pretty and Preppy.
I think this little print is just adorable. The best part??? The money earned from these goes to a couple to help fund their adoption from Africa. She has a TON of super cute stuff available. Check her out? I think you'll be glad you did.
And I know I've shared these before, but I seriously love these breast cancer awareness bracelets from the Keep a Breast Foundation, and at under $4 each, could you seriously ask for a better stocking stuffer????
OK, so now you know I'm gonna ask--- what would you love to see in YOUR stocking this year????
