My friend Amanda over at Wander Homeschooling some awesome stocking stuffer ideas that are fun but educational too. I’ve always been a huge fan of Mad Libs so I’m thrilled to see she included those. Oh, and who remembers the Rubik’s Cube? Remember taking the stickers off so you could get it all the colors right?
Teens and Beyond
Softy Straws Silicone Straws – my family and I have been using these straws for months now and love them. We like them better than stainless steel because they don’t clank around the glass or cup and they are durable and easily washed.
Check out my review of 7 different reusable straws right here.
Solmate Socks – these are made from 100% recycled cotton and made in the USA. Bright colors and mismatched, yes please!
Burts Bees Lip Balm – this is my most favorite lip balm, I’ve been a lip balm addict since high school and I’m not afraid to admit it.
Beeswax Wrap – better for the environment than plastic wrap because they are reusable, the wraps are made with beeswax and organic cotton.
Collapsible Sports Water Bottle – talk about practical. Not only is it reusable but once all the water is gone, it doesn’t take up much space. So many airports now have bottle filling stations after you get through security, see ya later $5 bottles of water from the magazine stand.
Burt’s Bees Hand Repair Gift Set – Burt’s Bees products are made with natural ingredients and no funny stuff. I’ve been using Burt’s Bees products for years and love them.
Reusable Fabric Bag – a bag that folds up, very smart. I have a reusable folding bag that I keep in my purse so can always say no thank you to the plastic or paper bags.
Plant Therapy Essential Oils – I’ve been using Plant Therapy essential oils for years and love them. They are great quality and affordably priced. Bonus, free shipping and a fun sticker or 2 in your shipment.
For the record, I’d like anything from the Teens and Beyond section. Which gift would you like to receive?
Make it a green day!
