Christmas stockings are such a fun tradition in our family! My mom and I always go the traditional route for each other, getting little beauty supplies we may not otherwise buy, like a special facemask or eye cream. We always include a carefully chosen ornament and then another special gift, before packing a clementine and Hershey’s kisses into the toe of each other’s Christmas stocking, stuffing it full and hanging it on the mantle in the living room of my childhood home.
Each year, we try to find something the other will adore, and we’ve dragged the whole family in with us! Some of our favorite traditions are stockings, the Christmas Eve box (coming soon!), and Christmas Mass. I remember as a kid going to midnight mass… but it’s hard to find one now. As I searched for this year’s best stocking stuffers, I came across some of the most fabulous items- and there’s something for everyone on your list here- so check them out!
For your cold weather friends:
Hook Smart owner/creator Danielle, specializes in modern handmade crocheted accessories for women, babies, and nerds. Each piece is custom for you- soft, warm, snuggly. It’s all things winter gear should be… with a huge fashion element. Many pieces come with buttons, the ability to add a crochet bow, and tons of color options!
My fave is the Perfect Cluster Mini Crochet Slouch Hat– buttons + slouch = yes, please.

For the crafter:
Amanda, owner of AG Creations, has the most adorable items (and makes most of our hairbows and bands!), but I LOVE her pin cushions! They’re so unique and a perfect little item to pop into your crafter’s stocking this year!
For the sports fan:
Sometimes, the best artwork is found in the most unusual places… that is for sure!
Unforgettaballs are created from original paintings that are reproduced onto authentic baseballs. Begun 20 years ago when Emily M Wolfsonen a painted an American Flag on a baseball for her husband, she’s since created hundreds of intricate designs of old and new ballparks, city landscapes, and family occasions for all types of baseball collectors.
Last year, I gifted the old Vet in Philly to a friend, and I know he loves it! There are so many designs and they all come in a lucite cube, for showing off, and a white box, perfect for wrapping your gift!
For the perfect solution:
Calm-A-Mama founder Hannah is no stranger to motherhood and the fact that sometimes it is hard. Life, in fact, is hard. Calm-A-Mama drops combine two gentle methods of plant healing, using USDA organic botanical water extracts (or hydrosols) and then adding flower essences to them. The tincture is preserved in glycerin, resulting in a USDA Organic, alcohol-free supplement that is gentle enough to be taken by infants and yet incredibly effective on the emotional and physical bodies. Safe for the whole family & made from the highest quality organic ingredients, Calm-A-Mama products are incredibly unique, with nothing like them on the market. My favorite drops are the Sleep Drops!
For the personal touch
Ornaments with Love is an amazing opportunity to make Christmas personal. Each ornament is truly a timeless gift that tells your friends and family how much you care. Putting ornaments up on our tree is an event, and we love to talk about when we got them and why… what they mean to us, like reminiscing about a special vacation we took that year:
As I mentioned, we always include ornaments in our stockings… this year, I got myself one special, to mark the year we bought our house! Or, mark something even more amazing… like the birth of a baby or your wedding!
Personalized Christmas tree ornaments are a wonderful way to record memories of life’s events and activities and a thoughtful way to show how much you care. And Ornaments with love cares about their customers, too. Each ornament comes with a gift bag (how easy is that!!!) and your order will ship within 48 hours! Best yet, shop for every stocking you have to stuff, and your order, over $50, will ship free!
For beauty, wellness and a fresh start
Ava Anderson Non-Toxic is an absolute favorite of this house! Ava Anderson develops and produces cutting-edge, SAFE products to the highest performance standards. They are leaders in providing wellness information, while sharing the dangers of toxic chemicals in personal care and home products with families across America through individual parties and online sales. (If you live near me, I hope you are coming to a party of mine next week!) The baby diaper cream is a favorite of ours in the whole house- not just for its amazing lavender scent (available without that, too), but for its healing capabilities for everything from rashes to dry skin and soothing of tired hands, feet and legs. I swear by it!
For the perfect stocking stuffer, a candle is ideal! This candle is not like anything else you can buy. Made with organic coconut wax and organic beeswax to ensure cleanest, longest lasting candle (45-50 hour burn time) with scent from pure essential oils and natural cotton wicks. No fragrance. Nothing artificial. Just an amazing candle!
This scrub is such a joy to have AND share, too! A great size for the stocking, the candy cane body scrub is a pretty, pink, emollient-rich sugar scrub. A candy cane scent reminiscent of snowflakes and holidays is a soft, creamy blend of sugar, coconut, and olive oils accented with a touch of real peppermint candy and a hint of cooling peppermint oil. So decadent!
With any of these products, you are sure to have the best stuffed stockings this season! Which item do you hope Santa leaves for you?
