What’s your favorite type of gift to receive at the holidays? Mine are always the things that I didn’t know I needed. No matter the size, I always know they were given with love. Stocking stuffers are typically small, thoughtful gifts like fun knick-knacks or something that the recipient might have mentioned in passing.
As someone with a passion for holistic living, I tend to stuff my family’s stockings with wellness-inspired goodies. Giving in this way shows that you are listening and, most importantly, value the well being of those receiving your gift.
For example, due to the global health events of 2020, my mom refuses to leave the house and has not pampered herself since January. She’s a woman that loves to visit the spa, so a great stocking stuffer for her is an easy-to-use face or hair mask.
Another example would be getting my husband lip balm because he loves to borrow mine. Lastly, I know my sister would enjoy an all-natural CBD product to help her combat chronic back pain.
You see? It’s easy to get family and friends affordable wellness-inspired products that they will love, and you will be happy to gift.
If you’re in need some wellness stocking stuffer inspiration, I’ve highlighted a few gift ideas that anyone is sure to enjoy.
