The holidays are rapidly approaching, and if you’re anything like me, you are probably completely unprepared. My travel schedule has been insane lately, what with my visiting my friend in NYC and taking almost back to back work trips…I just started doing my holiday shopping TODAY! Thankfully, there aren’t that many gifts to be purchased, as our family only gives gifts to the kiddos. However…I have a 19 year old kid at home and she has NO IDEA what she wants for Christmas…she must get it from me, because when I am asked about what I want for Christmas, I give the same response, “I don’t know.”
Well, here are 5 Last Minute Stocking Stuffers For the Chick in Your Life, whether it’s an adult woman like myself who is always on the go, or your mom who always answers, “I just want to spend time with you,” or a teenage girl who already practically has everything!
5 Last Minute Stocking Stuffers For the Chick in Your Life
When I was a young girl, my parents always threw a few Bonne Belle Lipsmackers in my stocking. I’ve carried on that tradition for Angeline, and always put at least one lip balm in her Christmas stocking. This year it’s Carmex Moisture Plus…honestly, because I have a ton of them laying around the house from a giveaway I won earlier this summer! Yeah, I am just keeping it real. They’re already there and they’re free. Perfect for a stocking stuffer!
Portable Bluetooth Speakers and Earbuds
Every chick needs a tiny, portable Bluetooth speaker. My favorite is this tiny Insignia Portable Speaker that fits in the palm of your hand is just $10! It’s splash proof, offers a 6 hours of playback on a full charge for a completely wireless experience and boasts a USB charging port to keep your electronic devices powered. It’s perfect for throwing in your purse or backpack and taking with you anywhere you want to go – whether it’s the beach, your hotel room when you’re traveling, or simply hanging out in the backyard on a sunny afternoon.
I also just got these really cool headphones that double as a bracelet for Angeline’s stocking. How cool is that? I know that everyone normally uses the free headphones that come with their phones…but mine get so easily destroyed that I always end up buying new ones!
Wallets, Wristlets and Coin Purses
Yes, we all use plastic to pay for most of our purchases, but I know that there are some archaic types out there who still believe in carrying cash…which means that you also have spare change rolling around in your purse. I love giving Angeline a new wallet or wristlet in her stocking each year, and I am always thrilled to find one in mine! I even use them to hold hair ties, SIM cards and all kinds of random things in my purse.
Pens and Notebooks for the Writers
I never complain when I find a new set of pens or a Moleskin notebook in my holiday stocking…chances are, the ladies in your life need to take notes too. Doesn’t everyone need a notebook in their purse? Regardless, everyone needs pens. I love funky pens!
Everyone needs to take care of their skin, especially us ladies who may or may not be approaching our later years. While I may joke around and say that I am “28 and holding,” the only reason I am able to get away with that is because I have been concentrating on taking care of my skin since I turned 30. Don’t wait until you’re in your 30’s – DO IT NOW. I could probably get away with saying I was 23 if I had always taken care of my skin.
