Great Stocking Ideas for His & Her
Even more than presents, I love opening my stocking each Christmas. Equally, I love filling stockings with a good mix of fun, apparel, beauty and treats! Below you will find some of my favourite stocking stuffer ideas for men and women.
I have been on the hunt for a great hairbrush forever. I hadn't found a decent one until a viewer kindly recommended the Wet Brush Pro. Game-changer. This hairbrush is lightweight, can be used on both wet and dry hair and is budget friendly. Find Wet Brush on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram Price $8-12.00 (Purchase via Amazon US and Amazon Canada)
Including sweet treats in stockings is a given, at least for me. Chocolate is always a safe bet. This year I am loving the Laura SecordRecipe in a Jars (available in Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Brownie and Molton Chocolate Cake). I am also loving how many varieties of Hot Chocolate, Laura Secord offers because there's definitely a variety for everyone (my top picks are Mint, White and Creamy Chocolate). Both of these recommendations make for a fun stocking stuffer, but equally, a hostess gift!
Keeping with the treat theme, dessert-like teas can make for another wonderful addition to a stocking. TeaPigs has such great and unique flavours (seriously, Popcorn Tea) that set them apart and offer uniqueness. Specifically for the holiday season, I love pairing their Apple Cinnamon and Roobios Creme Caramel. Also, another great hostess, teacher or neighbour gift. Price $10.00 per box Learn more about Teapigs via Facebook and Instagram
A pocket size game is a safe bet for anyone, especially one as entertaining as Left Centre Right. This game is great for a group of people and can be enjoyed from ages 6+. It is really compact because it is only played with dice that come in a convenient carrying case. For anyone who enjoys playing games, this is a wise choice! Available by Hasbro at all major retailers (Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, etc) Price $6.99
Beauty items are also something I never forget to include when I'm filling stockings. Little splurges make for a thoughtful and appreciated gift(s). It's also easy to find nice products for both men and women. Many of my recommendations this year all come from Vichy, as it's the brand I personally use most frequently. For women, a wonderful stocking addition is the Vichy Purete Thermale Makeup Removing Wipes. They easily remove all makeup, but also sooth skin and leave it feeling fresh. A pricer suggestion, is one of my favourite skincare products, the Idealia Peeling. This nightly peel is gentle enough for daily use and leaves skin notably more fresh and even. For men, an easy choice is the Vichy Homme V Body & Hair Shower Gel. It smells so good and is safe for even sensitive skin. Price - Purete Thermale Wipes $10-14.95, Idealia Peeling $39.95, Homme Body & Shower Gel $13.50 **All items on sale now via the Vichy Website
For the bath lover, I highly recommend the Buck Naked Soap Company's Naughty + Nice Bath Bomb Set. This gorgeously packaged gift set comes with four individually wrapped bath bombs. The two 'Naughty' bombs are deliciously jasmine scented and the 'Nice' is a refreshing mint. The combination is just heaven!

Of course every stocking needs a snuggly surprise. Pook's Thigh High Socks are a trendy, unique and practical gift (especially if you are a fellow female, Canuck). I love that I can wear these around the house and be cozy, but also that they'll keep me warm under pants. The Thigh Highs are so incredibly soft too, one pair may not be enough! Price $17.99
A gift that one may not think to give themselves, but they'll instantly fall in love with is the Hubalou. Made of sustainable, ultra-absorbent and soft bamboo the Hubalou is the ultimate hair wrap. It won't cause hair breakage or frizziness like other terry cloth or microfibre wraps can, travels easily and cuts down on drying time!
