It’s just about that time when we should be getting serious about Christmas shopping. The big day is only a few weeks away and shopping last minute with nothing in mind can lead to expensive, impulse buys. It’s always better to have a plan when it comes to checking things (and people) off your list and stocking stuffers are a good place to start. I call them stocking stuffers, but any of these items also make amazing stand alone gifts, depending how much you want to spend on different people. Be it a friend, family member, or significant other, I’ve included presents that work for various genders, styles and interests. From an amazing cookbook with delicious recipes to an energy-boosting green tea, here are 8 stocking suffers your giftees are bound to love!
1. Top with Cinnamon Cookbook
A cookbook is great gift for those who love to spend time in the kitchen as well as for those who are looking to start baking and cooking more often. Top with Cinnamon by food blogger Izy Hossack has a wide array of recipes from chickpea pomegranate dip with pita chips to an indulgent mocha coconut cake; not to mention stunning food photography to go along with the recipes.
2. Harry’s Winston Set
This shaving kit comes equipped with a razor handle, shave gel, 3 blade cartridges and a travel blade cover. All for only $25! Plus, you can get it personally engraved for an extra $15, which I would definitely suggest. Such a thoughtful gift for any guy on your list.
3. BY DANILEA Berry Bad Lipstick
You can never go wrong gifting a pretty lip colour. This matte lippy from bydanilea is a beautiful shade and it’s formulated with vitamin E to keep lips soft and moisturized all winter long (and beyond)!
4. S’well Water Bottle
These water bottles are awesome! They keep your drinks cold for 24 hours and hot up to 12 hours, which makes them perfect for tea, water or wine (yes, at 25 oz, they hold an entire bottle of wine!). I love this champagne pink colour and would suggest it for any girly girl on your list, but they also come in heaps of colours that will fit any guy or gal you’re buying for!
5. Tommy Hilfiger Boxers
Boxers are a quintessential stocking stuffer year in and year out. You can never have too many underpants, right?
6. Phone Case
Apple’s new silicone phone cases are silky and extremely easy on the eye. With loads of different colours to choose from, personalize it for whoever you’re buying for! If they don’t have an iPhone, no worries, any nice phone case is always a good call.
7. Teavana Matcha Green Tea
For the wellness buff on your list, who’s always looking for healthy boost, a tin of matcha is the perfect stocking stuffer. With high caffeine content, it can replace your morning cup of jo and it has anti-oxidant properties that blow the roof off other teas.
8. Minday Kaling’s Why Not Me
Mindy Kaling is my dream girl and her book is just as funny as her show. If you haven’t watched The Mindy Project I highly recommend it, and her books are quick reads that will make your heart smile.
