Shopping for grown-ups isn’t always fun, but looking for stocking stuffers that will offer good value can be pretty interesting. The ideas below include things that people can enjoy using each day.
Treat a friend or family member to a fun keychain. If you can find one with their name on it, go for it! If their name is unique and you have some crafting skills, consider beading or embroidering a keychain that they can use for years to come. Simple keychain kits that feature a small cross-stitch panel may be the perfect way to create custom Christmas gifts.
2. Rechargeable Flashlight
A solar-powered flashlight is an incredibly handy tool to have. You can find flashlights that actually have panels built into the side. A flashlight or single bulb with an individual panel and cable could also be useful if the weather knocks the power out.
If you’re looking for a stocking stuffer for a child, consider a headlamp that they can use to read instead of a flashlight. Also as a bonus, headlamps are harder to lose.
3. Skincare Products
A soft pair of gloves and a tub of scented lotion can be a gift of remarkable luxury. If you have a friend or family member who’s always taking care of everyone else, treat them to a tube of rich lotion or a tub of body butter. If you can treat them to moisturizing gloves as well, you’ve now provided them with a few minutes that they must simply sit and enjoy. Pair your skincare products with a sleeping mask to enhance the relaxation.
4. Scented Candle
A small scented candle can turn a bland hotel room or a dim office into a spot that smells like home. If you know of a friend or family member who is suffering the winter doldrums, treat them to a bright lemon or a lush orange-scented candle to lift their spirits. Make sure you either provide a candle holder or give them a jar candle so they can use it immediately. Include a small lighter to make the gift complete.
5. Luxury Soap
Another treat that will bring positive thoughts of you to mind is a bar of luxury soap. For busy parents who struggle to treat themselves, some luxury-scented soap and a protective box can provide an oasis of peace when they have time to soak in a hot tub. You can also include soap from your local area.
6. Hand Sanitizer
Like it or not, hand sanitizer will continue to be a need for years to come. Look for products that contain moisturizer. Try to find scented moisturizers that your recipient will enjoy. If they’re a bit on the whimsical side, get the hand sanitizer with glitter in it!
Many of us have had hand sanitizer leak in a pocket or purse so look for bottles that have a cap that will not come easily open.
Handy gifts that offer relaxation, protection against illness, or light in the darkness will be appreciated all throughout the year!
