Stocking Stuffers


I’ve been sharing a few of my favorite things to kick start your holiday shopping. It’s a rare opportunity for me to share things beyond our kitchen and home that I love and use.


First, this necklace has been a staple of mine for over 4 years now and it still wins a lot of compliments. Wear it alone or pair it with another necklace to make a statement. I wear it with a little black dress, button up shirts and even tees.

With the changing weather comes changing skin. I started using Aveda Hand Relief in college and pick up a travel size to throw in my purse each winter. It’s extremely moisturizing and has a beautiful, subtle scent. 


We should also protect those pretty hands in something versatile like these timeless leather and cashmere gloves.

I also love Aveda’s nourish-mint lip shine with just enough color and a hint of mint flavor. It’s great for everyday and nestles beautifully into a stocking.

Another winter favorite is Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment – I rarely wear real lipstick. Why would I when this makes your lips feel so soft with just the right touch of color!

I’m very sensitive to scents, but Voluspa candles never disappoint. The petite size makes a great stocking stuffer or token gift for friends and coworkers.

Oh, and those Beats? Who can resist them in a soft gold.

    Here are a few stocking stuffers I have given (because I love them myself!):
    Small glass jars of local honey, locally hand made beeswax candles, and tins of Gardener’s Hand Cream (all from Three Sister’s Farm, Essex CT)

    Vermont Prime Emu lip balms (I like the unscented) and little bottles of Emu oil (great for rubbing into cuticles)

    Small jars of imported African shea butter (heaven on winter-dry skin!) and bars of African black soap (best soap ever!) from Heaven Scent in Charleston, SC (
