What, Christmas is a week away? How did that happen! I am semi-ready here, but I definitely still have a few more stocking stuffer type gifts to buy. Today I thought I’d round up a few more ideas for smaller gifts in case you are still shopping too. You can see all our Gift Guides HERE for tons more ideas!

This small candle is the perfect stocking stuffer because this is possibly my favorite candle scent ever. Years ago I was the guest of a very elegant French woman who lived on Park Avenue in New York City and I remember that her apartment had the loveliest lavender smell. It was just what these candles smell like. I keep one by my bed and don’t even burn it, the scent is strong enough without being lit. They come in the prettiest tins too. I also want to try this scent, since my husband enjoys drinking bourbon I have a feeling it will quickly become a favorite.

Loft still has the 50% off sale running, which you saw in our What To Wear This Holiday Post, and it includes jewelry. I wear quite a bit of LOFT jewelry and they have some pretty things on sale right now that would make great gifts. This pretty initial bracelet set below is just $12 today {use code WRAPITUP}, and tons of other jewelry on sale HERE. 



Also, this filagree earring set is just over $12 for 3 pairs, aren’t they pretty?  Shipping is pricey with Loft so don’t forget you can buy online and pick up in the store if you don’t hit the minimum.


I upgraded all my make up brushes a year ago, and I think these make a great gift, especially for pre-teen or teenage girls. I bought this set and it was less than $12. It is so nice to have a different brush for everything in my make up drawer.

Speaking of make-up, I ordered this Winter Jewels palette on Black Friday and it has been a fantastic addition to my make-up, especially for holiday parties. I especially love the blush and highlighter colors and all the jewel tone eye shadows are beautiful. I pretty much exclusively use this makeup and skincare line due to the non-toxic ingredients, the luxurious feel of this palette is just a bonus.

I have had my eye on this marble phone case; it’s another great small but practical gift. You can also add a popular pop socket to help hold your phone or prop it up {tons of other options HERE}.




My boys love wearing bow ties, and while they don’t dress up too much at their age it is still nice for them to have a stylish tie. I love this classic boys bow tie, but if that isn’t their style you can get a regular tie in boys sizes HERE. These are 40% off today with the code TIME2GIVE.  A similar men’s style is HERE if you are into matching your boy crew ????.

I mentioned this little gadget in our Favorite Things post but my boys are getting these portable chargers in their stockings. No more phone-dying-can’t-check-in issues here.  These are small enough to tuck in pockets so they make the perfect stocking stuffer, and come to think of it I’ll probably get my husband one to make his life easier too 🙂

This is another tech gadget worth a mention, but this one is so useful. I have this car mount for my cell phone above (you get two for less than $12!) and this has been one of those ‘why didn’t I get this sooner?’ things. It’s so nice to not have to dig for my phone when it rings, or have it right there so I can use it to easily navigate.

Finally, for foodies or those that will enjoy a Manhattan cocktail or the like over the holidays, these gourmet maraschino cherries would make a perfect gift, though I am sure they would be delicious over ice cream for non-drinkers!

Good luck everyone in getting things done during this last hectic week. I see the benefit in starting early, as while I still have a few more gifts and some wrapping, the bulk of my shopping is done which is a good feeling. I don’t know what I would do without Amazon and their prime shipping for all those last minute things!
