Recipe for the Perfect Stocking

Recipe for the Perfect Stocking - Do you know how to make the perfect stocking?  How to fill it with items they will enjoy and love?

Growing up my mom always made the most amazing stockings.  She had a great way of stuffing stockings.  Practical items, fun items, useful items. One of the key things is to ensure there is a variety in the stocking.  Think of their interests and hobbies and try to tick off a few categories.

Recipe for the Perfect Stocking - Do you know how to make the perfect stocking?  How to fill it with items they will enjoy and love?

Here is my Recipe for the Perfect Stocking:

Edible Goodies:  Find out what they enjoy!  Candy canes, chocolate kisses, shortbread, life saver books, find out their holiday favourites.  My hubby likes Terry’s Chocolate Orange, my mom likes Toffifee, Turtles, and Maltesers, my sister likes Kinder Surprise.   I like traditional Walkers Shortbread cookies and maybe a Flake from the Scottish specialty store in town.

Hobby related items – Nose plugs, Magick cards, paint brushes, etc.

Knitting and Crochet : Knitting needles/crochet hook, wool, stitch markers, knitting needle gauge, needles, etc.

Handy People: Tools, screw driver heads, duct tape, head lamp.

Camping: Tent stakes, lighters, fire starters, flash lights, mosquito repelling tools, kitchen gadgets.

Planners/journaling: Sharpie markers and fancy pens, planner stickers, washi tape.

Geeky/Nerd Toys: POP figurines, magnets of their favourite show, socks, mugs.

Kids Toys: Crayons, hot wheels cars, doll accessories, add-on kits for their toys, puzzles, balls, stickers.

Bath stuff: For kids or adults.  Fun sample sizes shower gel, bubble bath, colour bath tabs, bath bombs, coloured bath pencils, bath pillow or bath toys.

Hair Accessories:  Hair ties, hair bows, barrettes, head bands, hair bands, cute fun things.

Cosmetics: Lip gloss, even boys like lip gloss!  Hand lotion, eye liner, lip stick, eye shadow, foundation, etc.

 

One of the most important things is the presentation.  A magazine based on their interests, a colouring book sticking out the top of the stocking.  Let it look overflowing.

Essential Oils storage bag

A pretty bag or case to carry all their EO’s in.  A way to keep them organized and visible.  This is my personal favourite one HERE, I like to be able to see each one so it is easy to grab and go and helps to prevent mix-ups when you have a few bottles that look alike.

Whether it is a new blend they may need, their favourite oil that you know they go through often, or a fun new one to try out, you always need more oils!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is coming, the time of year when you can show your wife, your mother, your mother in law, your grandma, your daughter (who may be a mother) exactly how much you appreciate her and support all of her efforts in such a hard job.  Being a mother is not the only hard job I know of, but being a mother is incredibly difficult, no sleep, no sick days, no vacation, no time alone even if it’s to go to the bathroom or shower, you work very long long days sometimes never alone for days or weeks at a time even while sleeping.  The holiday changes with your kids ages, but for me having a 3 year old and a 1 year old, I am in the thick of being a “mombie” with no sleep, and Mother’s Day is one of my new favourite holidays.  I think it is important to support all the other mothers in your lives, friends, mother-in-law, your own mother, all mothers deserve a day to know that they are loved.

Mother's Day Gift Guide - What to get the mom in your life? Here is a Mother's Day gift guide for all stages of Motherhood. Treat her to something special this year!

Here are some gifts any mother would love to get:

Jamberry Nail Wraps

Mom rarely has time to spend on herself, why not get her a pedicure and manicure!  It may not be possible for her to go out somewhere and get it done.  Jamberry is super cool and easy to use and mom can do it at home while the kids are napping or running around her feet.  If she has a daughter, you can get matching Mommy & Me Jamberry nails!

You can order them here

Monthly Subscription

 

I got panty by post for my birthday and I absolutely love it.  It’s so fun to know that every month you have a new pair of panties coming your way. I don’t really have time to shop for underwear, I consider my underwear that I bought two years ago to still be my “new underwear” so to get a new pair in the month is absolutely amazing. I can’t wait for the beginning of the month and check my mailbox eagerly for the first few days until I get my package. You name what size you need and you have three different styles you can choose from, the basic collection, the signature collection, and the premium collection, based on your kinds of taste.  It’s so fun to get something new, I get so excited knowing that I have something pretty that I get to wear because I don’t normally get to splurge on myself or pick up things like that so it is a great treat to get the woman in your life.

Check them out here

 

New Purse or bag
I know being a mother, you frequently have to lug around a whole bunch of things and don’t always get to pick up the prettiest items for yourself.  I got this bag two months ago and it is so beautiful and I love going out and try and actually dress up just so I can match the bag.  If I have to lug around diapers, wipes, change of clothes and toys, let it be in something pretty that doesn’t feel like a “mom bag”.

Check out some bags here

A great way to help her relax, aid congestion, calm down the kids, etc.  I LOVE my diffuser and use it daily.  If the mother in your life is interested in holistic healing, essential oils, aromatherapy, or things along those lines then a diffuser is the perfect gift for her.

Check out where I got mine here

Help make her see that she is putting effort into living healthy by getting her a tool that helps with tracking your fitness and motivating you to put in those few extra steps each day.  It is also great to use as a sleep tracker so she can see how much sleep she gets and adjust from there, whether knowing she needs to go to sleep earlier, seek help to let her have a nap, or just be more lenient on herself knowing she is sleep deprived.

You can get it here

A new baby carrier!  Baby carriers are a super fun gift and a practical one as well.  Baby wearing can make it easier to get shopping done, chores around the house, cooking and of course going for walks and getting some fresh air.  The type of baby carier is specific to each woman, so if you know there is one she has been eyeing you can surprise her with it, or just tell her that’s what you want to get her and allow her the fun of picking the perfect carrier and print.

This is my favourite company to buy from here

Take mom shoe shopping to get a new pair of comfy shoes, maybe fancy, or practical, something to help keep her feet comfy while she is chasing after kids all summer.  A new pair of sandals goes a long way in in comfort.

I miss my body (8)

Make a cute craft with the kids for mom.   In my house I am usually the one making crafts with the kids and cute little pictures or crafts for daddy, mommy may not have a chance to get these cute gifts herself yet so why not spend some time with the kids making her a surprise craft.  Bonus, this also gives mom a chance to shower or have a bath not knowing you are making her a surprise.

I miss my body (10)

 

My mom’s favourite was going to the nursery on mother’s day and getting flowers to come home and plant with us. One year my dad got her a crab apple tree. She loved it, it flowers every year around mother’s day and is a constant reminder of her family.

We also loved doing activities with her, movie date, pedicures together, picnic, etc. Why add to the clutter with more stuff, experiences last longer and are wonderful memories. My mom and I used to go to Stars On Ice together as my mother’s day present to her. It was always really fun.

Holiday Gift Guide for Mom

Moms all work very hard and deserve a little extra love from time to time.  Christmas is the best time of year to give that!

There are tons of great gifts you can get the mom in your life (your mom, the mother of your children, mother-in-law, friend who is a mother, sister, etc.) to help her out and show her how much you appreciate all her hard work.

A break!!

 

Holiday Gift Guide for MOM - Mom is so awesome and deserves some amazing gifts this Christmas. Why not follow this Holiday Gift Guide for Mom and get her what she REALLY wants?!?!

Mama loves her kids, but probably never gets to do anything alone (including pee) so why not tell mom you will watch the kids for a few hours and she is to go out and relax, drink a HOT coffee at Starbucks and *gasp* read a book!  Go shopping, visit a friend, not run errands, do something fun and relaxing for herself.

Gift cards for Meals

 

GC

Give Mom gift cards to local restaurants and fast food places.  What better than the gift of not having to cook dinner one night.

Fancy coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc.

 

CoffeeWhatever she loves, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, bonus if you tailor it to her Tassimo/Kurig maker (provided you know what they have).  Mama needs coffee to parent!

Chocolate

 

chocolate-candies-1329480Nice chocolate she wouldn’t buy herself, boxed chocolate, truffles, whatever.  Encourage her to hide it somewhere for a treat when she is alone.

Adult colouring book

 

61+OsGRPVAL__SX384_BO1,204,203,200_Colouring is a great way to de-stress after a day of dealing with cranky toddlers and teething babies, my toddler and I both have fairy colouring books (mine adult and hers toddler) so we can sit and colour together in our separate books.  It is a great way to spend time together and relax.IMG_5072

A gift card (plus baby sitting coupon) to a local Paint Nite

paintnite

A night away from the kids with Adults painting and drinking wine.  Great way for mom to have a good time and feel like a human being again.

Subscription to Audible

US_logo_182x77__CB317827699_

Who has time to sit and read a book?  With audio books you can read while you drive, cook dinner, breast feed, clean, etc.  I love it, I can listen to them all the time and still catch up on my author’s latest books.

Subscription boxes

 

box-women@2xThe gift that keeps giving.  A monthly subscription box that comes each month so mom can eagerly anticipate the mail and get a treat each month.  I just got one and am so excited by it!  I have Panty By Post 526and each month I get a new pair of underwear.  I want to try Birchbox, which is makeup and beauty products.  Mom is always so busy looking after everyone else she forgets to look after herself.  Here is a nice way to pamper her every month.

A Photo Shoot

 

1922481_771027246248550_1444057306_nFor the family, you can never have enough family photos, maybe just her and the kids, you and her? Maybe treat her to a pampering session (hair & makeup) and a professional photo shoot on her own to remind her how beautiful she is?

Holiday Gift Guide for Dad

Dad works hard to provide for the family, why not get him some fun gifts to thank him for all his hard work.

Stumped on what to get Dad? Try getting hubby some of these fun gifts. Click To Tweet

Holiday Gift Guide for DAD - Dad's can be hard to shop for, here is a Holiday Gift Guide for Dad, husband, father, men, whomever, if he is a guy you can't go wrong with these ideas!

SAXX Boxers

sxbb30f_ghe
I cannot recommend these highly enough.  The women in my birth group introduced me to this and I think everyone’s husbands now proudly sport them.  Sorry in advance for the visual, but there is a separate pocket for certain appendages, meaning it has more space and is super comfy and gets less hot and sweaty.  Once you get SAXX they become a recurrent gift.  Both my hubby and dad have SAXX!

Nothing like a pair of SAXX to show hubby you care about his comfort! Click To Tweet

cq5dam_web_1280_1280Scotch

A good scotch can really help for de-stressing after a long day of hard work.  Good quality scotch, like McAllen 18 and Lagavulin 16.  Or my personal favourite, Arran Gold (seriously if someone can get that to me in Canada please tell me how!).  Nice stuff they wouldn’t buy themselves and gives a nice treat.  Bonus points for the scotch glasses and scotch rocks to go with them.

41kIPS-NXRL__SX180_Knives/swords

Pocket knives, kitchen knives, katana, sword, fun knives, any guy would love to have some new toys around. Mine is a prepper and any weapons are greatly appreciated.  Even just survival blades can come in handy.  Fancy Chefs knives are also a great idea for the guy who loves to cook.  Why not a sharpener to help keep them at their best?

1390_browncoats_serenity_valleyDorky clothes

T-shirts, robes, toques, PJ’s, all in their favourite characters: Big Bang theory, Firefly, Star Wars, super heroes, Game of Thrones, Star Trek etc.  you can’t go wrong with some new apparel in their favourite genre.

Chili_mango_hot_sauce__07168_1335959425_240_240Hot sauce

The ability to spice up food and make it more flavourful (like ketchup), go for the hot sauces that boast flavour, not the burn your mouth off ones.  While those can be fun too, the tasty ones like scotch bonnet or mango habanero are much tastier.  This one is my dad’s favourite hot sauce, he discovered it on a trip across Canada and when I buy it I get it in bulk so I have gifts that last awhile.

 Gadgets  The Latest High-Tech Gadgets

A new gaming mouse, Play Station 4, new Xbox game, tablet, the latest WOW expansion, whatever their tastes,  I am sure there is a new game or gaming accessory for them!

Exercise accessoriesAccessories for their sport

If they are a cyclist some tools to fix their bike, runner a new watch to track how fast they run/heart rate, etc., kayaker a new spray skirt, ultimate player a new disc or bag to keep their disc’s in, there are tons of dvd’s, magazines, and books related to sports that may peak their interest too.

Support hubby's health by getting him some accessories for his favourite sport! Click To Tweet

711zfKTq0pL__SY355_Tools

Buy them a tool to help fix up whatever you (or the kids) have broken recently. Tool chest, tool organizer, new gadgets to add to their collection, according to my hubby you can never have enough tools.

Gift CardsGift Cards

Gift cards for places to treat themselves to a guilt-free lunch at work.  My hubby loves Subway and there is one by his work, so a gift card to go there at lunch is a great gift.  It also means you don’t have to make his lunch one day!

Edible Treats

81Vp3T6q4oL__SX466_Big chocolate bars, like the 1/2 lb peanut butter cups, you don’t want to know how quickly my husband demolished his last Christmas!  Fudge, cookies, Terry’s chocolate orange, all these are awesome treats for him to snack on Christmas morning.

Guys are so difficult to buy for!  Hopefully with these tips you can find something here that your husband will like.

NOTE:  This is more of a general “dad” Holiday Gift Guide, I use it for both my husband, the father of my children, and my dad too!

If you have any more suggestions please tell me in the comments below. I am always looking for more ideas!  What are your go-to’s for a gift for your husband?
