Stocking Stuffer Surprises!

 Christmas Morning! I remember running down the stairs, early in the morning, in our pajamas, filled with anticipation and excitement wondering what did Santa bring? Our stockings would be overflowing with goodies- to the point they would have to be taken off the mantle (or in our case the railing on the stairs – we didn’t have a fireplace) to avoid falling down. 

Need new pajamas for Christmas morn? 

Holiday Pajamas

 I will say, waiting until now to purchase your holiday PJ’s, may be a mistake, as it was ‘slim-pickin’s’. But, I did manage to find some cute women’s nightshirts from Ribbons on Peoria that are adorable! Love the skiing Gnomes, I think they are my favorite! As well as, I hit some big box retailers like Target for the men’s pajama pants and JCPenny’s for the kid’s pajamas.

Over the past few years, I’ve become kind of lazy when it comes to stocking stuffers. I go the practical route like underwear, socks, chapstick and lotion. But, after shopping local (Tulsa) today, I have a whole new outlook on stocking stuffers! I was in stocking stuffer paradise!

For the kiddos, I’m loving the ‘About Face’ game and the stuffed alligator. What child wouldn’t love to see that cute little guy poking out of their stocking on Christmas morning? As well as, I’m digging the women’s gloves that allow you to use your smartphone without taking them off. And, who wouldn’t love an iCharge ALL that is a back up battery for your iPad, iPod, and iPhone? 

Splash - of - Fash

Teenage girl in your life? Head to Splash-of-Fash. This darling booth at The Market is owned and operated by a 14 year old. So, who better to know what that ‘hard-to-buy- for-teenager’ wants for Christmas? I’m thinking, bling, bling, and bling? How cute are those phone charms? 

The Gadget Company

A ‘gadget guy’ in your life? The Gadget Company is the perfect place to go holiday shopping. Love all the fun things you can find there for the guys in your life. Ladies….come on, what man doesn’t need ‘The Man’s Playbook’? 

Ida Red

When I walked into Ida Red, I, truly, feel like I walked into stocking stuffer paradise! It has so many fun, unique, and quirky things! If you don’t walk out of there with shopping bags filled with stocking stuffers, holiday gifts, and more – I don’t know what to tell you! So many fun things that reminded me, of my childhood, from kid’s toys to candy, as well as some interesting, new items too, like the ‘Mighty Wallet’ or the coasters of vintage signs around T-town. If I wasn’t on such a tight time schedule today, I would still be shopping there. 

The stockings are hung on the chimney with care….and ready to be filled! 

Happy Shopping!
