I love my husband. I really, really do. He is a great man. However there are a few things that… shall we say… need a little work. One is his gift giving. When he actually thinks enough in advance to get a gift for me, it’s great. But, for example, this year I got my birthday gift (August 9th) in October. After me basically telling him what I wanted. Yep.
So I have learned my lesson and I now give him lists in advance that he can choose from. I am not too particular, it’s more the thought that goes into the gift that counts. And even though stockings aren’t something he does, I thought I’d make a little list of a few small things that I’d love to have. Believe it or not, I found items for me, my mom and my boys all at Walgreens so not only is it a one stop shop, but they are not too pricey!
Stocking stuffers for everyone in the Family
Since stocking stuffers are usually the less expensive items that are just fun to have Walgreens is a perfect place to pick them up. For starters you know that you can get something for everyone. You can see from my list, I pretty much got my whole family covered. Second of all, Walgreens has great prices. Stocking stuffers aren’t meant to break the bank, so Walgreens as a one stop shop is perfect!
Earbuds – $29.99 (price may vary by store)
Although I would take a pair of these, I thought they’d be perfect for my kids! At school they go into a computer lab where all the kids in the school share the same headphones. And you guys, I don’t know about you, but the idea of my kids sharing the same headphones with all the others at school… I just don’t like it. I think it’s a safer bet to put some earbuds in their stocking so they can keep them in their backpacks at school. They get something fun & I don’t have to think about the headphone situation! Win-win!
Nail Polish – $8.50
I love me some nail polish. My collection is getting rather ridiculous however I still feel like I need more color options, you know? No? Just me? Well dang. I guess it’s just my way to relax. After a long day I like to crawl into bed, turn on Netflix and paint my nails. That way the dry while I finish my show and there’s minimal chance of messing them up. Nail polish is always a good idea with me.
Eye Shadow Palette – $19
Another “always a good one” is makeup. I don’t need expensive eye shadow or products in general. I’m happy with new colors and palettes to play around with. And honestly, some of the best eye shadow I’ve ever purchased was from a drug store! I also always buy palettes because there are more colors to mix and match!
Pedi Perfect – $49.99
Oh my feet. You guys. It’s ugly. Winter does not help the situation. remember how I just said that I like to paint my nails at night? Well, let’s just say I don’t get around to painting my toe nails. This Pedi Perfect is awesome. At least it can cut down the callouses so that my feet aren’t so disgusting. Now I just have to get around to painting my toe nails and they will be a whole lot better!
Activity Tracker – as low as $49.95
My mom has recently been really into fitness. She has lost almost 20 pounds and is working out consistently and I am so proud of her. She is making it a lifestyle change not just a diet and that’s why it’s sticking. I thought an activity tracker would be awesome for her because sometimes she hits the gym and sometimes she plays pickle ball at the park. Both are physical activity but pickelball for example can be hard to track. This could be a fun way to help to continue to motivate her!
Uno – $7.99
Our family loves games. My husband and I often play after the kids are in bed just us and we love to have family game nights as well. Uno is a game both kids can play and it isn’t boring for us parents to join in. This makes it a perfect stocking stuffer for our boys!
I love that Walgreens has a little something for everyone! I am actually completely done with all my Christmas shopping, all I need to do is grab a few stocking stuffer items for my kids. Maybe I’ll pick up a few of these for me from my husband! Hey, I gotta make it work somehow!
