GIFT GUIDE - Stocking Stuffers for Adults...but mainly Ladies :)

Stocking Stuffers for me are always the last items to purchase.  Growing up my parents (I mean Santa) would always fill ours with practical gifts like shampoo, toothpaste, etc.  Now as an adult when my husband (I mean Santa) fills my stocking I ask for a balance of stuff I need (that I would already buy) and fun stuff.  Here's a list of the fun stuff...some gender neutral or for him but mostly for the ladies.

These retractable iPhone cords are the MOST POPULAR item by far by all of you.  SO many have been purchased especially this holiday season.  Makes a great gift!

This nail polish is the MOST pinned shade and it's SOOOO pretty.  Under $5!

iWatch bands are a great stocking stuffer and there are SO many affordable options out there.  I've purchased several since getting mine and love them - a great sport option and a more dressier version.

I put these initial key chains in my gift guide for co-workers.  I may have bought one for myself and gave it to my husband to wrap.  As of posting, this is ON SALE right now.

Here's one just for HIM.  These magnetic collar stays will be a huge hit with the man in your life. 

I LOVE sheet masks!!!  There are so many good ones out there.  Get a pack and keep a few for yourself and then wrap a few for stockings.  My favorites are these and these and I want to try these

This is such a cute layering bracelet and its under $15.  Great for teens/tweens too because its adjustable.  Wear it on its own or layer it.

Love insulated wine tumblers.  Gave these as gifts last year and this year.  Great for him or her.

MAJOR MARKDOWNS at Stella and Dot

Holy Cow there are SOOOO many sales going on at Stella and Dot right now that I had to put it all into one blog post!  Lots of great gift ideas in here.  And check out my Insta Stories as I walk you through some of these.

UNDER $20 
Taj Clutch ($16.99) - By far the most popular this holiday season and I'm surprised it hasn't sold out yet...I have no doubt it will VERY soon.  Perfect winter clutch with built in wallet. 

Awning Clutch ($18.99) - This is the PERFECT summer bag.  Love the black stripe.  And the inside has a really cute fun pattern.  I snagged one of these for myself and a few as gifts.  I mean you can't beat the under $20 price tag! 

Kala Charm Necklace ($19.99) - Love the charm detail on this necklace.  Such a great gift idea.  I picked up one to give to one of my daughter's teachers.  

Winona Drops ($16.99) - I love these turquoise earrings.  VERY light weight and go with SO much.  You can wear them year-round.  Earrings not your thing, there's a necklace with the same shape and stone that is also on sale! 

Rosalind Earrings ($11.99) - These are SO cute.  I ended up picking up a pair a couple weeks ago when they went on sale.  You can wear them about four different ways including just as a stud.  The perfect earring to dress up all the black I wear.  Highly recommend.  

UNDER $25 

Addison Top ($20.99) - This is a fabulous top for the holidays with the fun great color.  Dress it up with a fun necklace like the Sutton I have on or this Rebecca Minkoff collab that's also on sale.  Fit is true to size.

Winona Necklace ($21.99) - This coordinates with the earrings that I posted in the under $20 section.  Again, love the stone and the shape.

Rory Earrings ($20.99) - I LOVE these earrings.  They are so unique with the blush leather petal detail.  Light weight and go with some many things.  I HIGHLY recommend.  And if they aren't you for you, try the necklace (see further down).

Jasper Fringe Necklace ($22.99) - This is the perfect necklace to dress up your all black looks.  You know I wear SO much black so this is perfect.  Wear it year round.  This retailed for over $100!!!!

Nakoma Chandeliers ($27.99) - I've had my eye on these for a while so when they got marked down a couple weeks ago I picked them up.  They've been reduced even further.  They are SO fun and a great way to spice up and outfit.  And all my Rachel Hollis fans, she loves them too!!!  

UNDER $40 

Rae Top ($34.99) - This is the PERFECT basic black top with a twist.  I LOVE the detail on the sleeve.  Great year around as you can layer it.  Fit is true to size.

Taylor Lace Cape ($34.99) - LOVE the detail on this top.  It's so pretty and flattering.  And you can't beat the price right now.  It runs big so DEFINITELY size down.

UNDER $50 
Rory Necklace ($40.99) - Like I said if the earrings weren't your thing try the coordinating necklace.  Adjustable so you can wear at different lengths.  Lightweight and really dresses up an outfit. 

Geometric Scarf ($47.99) - Love this large scarf.  It's perfect for layering with my cardigans, especially my favorite Always Cardigan that I'm wearing in this picture.

GIFT GUIDE - Children's Books

I LOVE giving books as gifts to little ones.  You can never have too many.  Some days I'll catch my kids just sitting in their room "reading" them.  One actually reading and the other just looking at pictures.  Here are some of our family favorites -

GIFT GUIDE - Kids Games

I'm a BIG fan of giving games as gifts for kiddos whether it's learning to play with siblings/friends OR playing as a whole family.  It's a great activity instead of just sitting in front of the TV.  Here are some of my favorites for my kiddos (and one new one we just got to try).  All age levels for these so hopefully you will find something for your family.


Trouble (and still play as they get older)


Sequence (and fun for adults too)


And we just got this game to try over the holidays...

And check out my other gift guides -

GIFT GUIDE - Female Co-Workers

Breaking up this gift guide into price points as I know we all spend differently for co-workers and bosses.  With these fun gifts, sometimes I end up picking something up for someone and then add one for myself.  Oops.  :)

Hopefully there's something in here for you...and if there isn't, reach out and I'll try and find something for you! 

UNDER $20 
These are great gifts on their own or mix and match a couple of them depending on your price point.   

I LOVE anything with an initial or's such a personal gift without being well, too personal.  Here are some cute options.

UNDER $25 
These are great on their own or mixed/match with any of the items I've listed.  

Luxe Studs (these have been the MOST popular)

Clutch (normally $89!)

Pouf Bag - great for someone who travels

And you know I had to throw in something with an initial...


UNDER $40 
Hammer Hoops (extremely popular...also a bigger size here) 

For co-workers in the creative space this necklace or bracelet would work.  There are other color combinations available too as seen in this picture.
