Last Minute Stocking Stuffers

  Is it just me or do you feel like you are always searching for that little something extra to add to your holiday gifts?

These gifts below in my opinion are the perfect "extras" to add to stockings or holidays gifts.  And if you are like me you should probably grab one of each for yourself

1.Smith's Rosebud Strawberry Lip Balm: I have had my Smith's for over a year and have barely put a dent in it, the lip balm will most likely go bad before I run out of it.  Although the $7 price tag is a bit steep for lip balm in my opinion, it is so moisturizing and also adds a little color and gloss to your lips 

2. Hair Ties: You can purchase these at Anthropologie or multiple Etsy shops or make your own like I do, for a quarter of the price. All you need is the elastic color of your choice which you can pick up at Michael's or Joann Fabrics and a pair of scissors. You can You Tube search for tutorials. I have made these for my wedding bathroom baskets, my mom's tennis team, and for friends and they are always a hit.

                  Who doesn't need more hair ties in their life, especially fun homemade ones. 

3. Gift Cards:  I know this isn't original, but I am not a gift card person when it comes to giving people gifts.  I feel like it's not personal. I don't know why I feel this way because I love to receive gift cards.  However I love the idea of adding gift cards to gifts.  Such as adding a gift card to your local liquor store with a set of wine glasses so that your gift recipient can pick out their favorite wine or adding a gift card for a boutique grocery store with the gift of a cookbook or cooking accessories.


4. Monogram Vinyls.  You know I couldn't complete this list without adding at least one monogrammed item, I just can't help it.  These vinyls are the perfect gift for anyone to add to their phone, computer, wine glass, or planner.  I also love the idea of adding monogrammed vinyls to the inside of books you may lend out, so everyone can remember who to return it to when they are done borrowing it.  Sunshine Vinyl has a huge selection of vinyls of all sizes and colors!!

5. Ceramic Reusable Containers:  It seems like I am constantly hearing about how bad it is to microwave plastic containers. Apparently ceramic is the new Tupperware.  As a working girl who brings her lunch everyday I would love to receive a few of the fun patterned ceramic containers to take my lunch to work.   I have also seen these containers sold individually at Marshall's and TJ Maxx.
