Ladies – if you’re like me – your stocking would stay empty if you and your mom weren’t filling it. Since some of you can’t rely on your own mom to do Santa’s job – I’m hoping to help streamline your holiday shopping by sharing a list of my favorite stocking stuffers for moms (or really any gal)!
Stocking Stuffers for Moms
Since we moms tend to take over for Santa and think of ourselves last I hope this sparks ideas for you! Most of these are personal favorites of mine and they tend to be practical gifts that need to be replenished every so often….think cosmetics and kitchen supplies. If there’s something you always love getting in your stocking I’d love to hear from you.
So let’s cut to it!
The Wet Brush – said to damage your hair less than conventional brushes when you detangle a wet mane. I’ve been using the wet brush for years. I ask for one every Christmas because, like a toothBRUSH, there are sanitary reasons for buying a new item even though you may not feel you NEED one. Despite its name, the wet brush works amazingly well on dry hair too!
CND Weekly Top Coat Nail Polish – I stopped going to the nail salon when I discovered CND Vinylux nail polish. It saves me so much time and money to paint my nails at home. If you think you can’t paint your own nails, as I did, start with lighter shades as they’re more forgiving of mistakes. My favorite shades of the CND nail polish are “cream puff” and “romantique”.
Honest Mascara – this is a mascara and primer in one and I’m pretty much ready to sign up for anything Jessica Alba puts her hands on. I am on my 4th tube of this mascara which is so rare for me and still loving it. It doesn’t flake and adds so much length.
NYX Butter Gloss – the butter gloss is super moisturizing without being sticky. I always have several (in my bag, my car, and in my bathroom). My favorite shades are “angel food cake” and “creme brûlée”.
Reusable Cloth Cleansing Pads – I’ve shared these a lot on Instagram stories. I use them with the Tula toner and wash them (in the bag that’s included) once every week or two. Not only will your skin thank you, but Mother Earth will too!
Live Clean Baby Wash and Shampoo – my whole family uses this as a body wash and my kids use it as a shampoo too. I am not a scent person, but I love the smell of this body wash.
Dry Shampoo 2 pack – I love living proof dry shampoo but it’s expensive so I’m gonna be trying this “not your mother’s” dry shampoo and I’ll report back. The reviews are good!
Phone Grip – I have a popsocket because my phone is a bit large for my small hands but this ring phone grip is much cuter.
Champagne Stopper – I love the Kirkland (Costco) 6.99 prosecco and this helps me keep a bottle tasting fresh throughout the week (if it lasts that long). I have 2 champagne stoppers, but this one is my fav and it’s relatively inexpensive.
Insulated Straw Tumbler – take your water or coffee on the go! I’m a big fan of stainless steel straws and this tumbler includes one or you can buy a pack of them separately.
Leopard Cozy Socks – I live in these socks all Winter. Under boots or in place of slippers, they’re so warm.
