The Necessities

Silicone Loofa

Here’s one that everyone in the family can use! Ditch your old loofa that collects mold and bacteria and swap in this silicone loofa! It’s soft, durable and easy to clean. It’s even soft enough to use on baby’s skin! Go ahead and grab one for everyone in the family to tuck into their stockings this year.


Let’s be honest, this is one that the whole family can benefit from. Need I say more?

Natural Beeswax Chapstick

Everyone needs chapstick especially with the dry winter air! Grab this pack of six and drop one into everyone’s stocking this year. Then maybe everyone will stop using yours!


You can’t go wrong with these because everyone needs one! Check out these biodegradable organic bamboo toothbrushes for the family this year!

Mini Wet Brushes

This is my favorite brush hands down and the only one I really use any more. Grab some minis to throw in everyone’s stockings then you’ll have one for every room! This is important if you have long hair like my daughter and I!

Sneaker Balls

Helpful Gadgets

Magnetic Wristband

This is a good one for Dad or Daddy’s Little Helper! I actually got it for my husband last year and it comes in handy more often than I realized it would. Now my daughter loves to help with it and I’m sure my son will when he’s a little bigger.

Fidget Toy Box

Do you have a fidgeter in the family? Or maybe quite a few? Check out this awesome box of fidget toys. It comes with 22 different pieces to help kids and adults with sensory, anti-stress and anxiety. They’re all fairly small so their also portable for travel!

Totally random, but even more fun! The scope extends so that you can reach even further. This magnetic pick up tool would be great for working on projects around the house or creating a fun scavenger hunt game!

Family Fun

Card Games for the whole Family

I’m all for something that the entire family can benefit from. Get everyone a different card game to play for family game night! There are tons of options to choose from, but here are a few I found that look fun. I’m all about the UNO Emoji game!

Practical Jokes

This would be such a fun idea for families with elementary aged kids. It comes with 7 individually wrapped practical jokes from a fart horn to fake poop and black soap! It would make for lots of fun and laughs!

Mad Libs

Speaking of laughs, these will leave everyone laughing all Christmas day!

Scratch Off Rainbow Notes

Who knew that Melissa and Doug was actually for the whole family? These scratch off notes are a cool stocking stuffer that everyone can use. Leave notes for each other or just have fun doodling!

Walkie Talkies

How fun would it be to split into teams with walkie talkies for a scavenger hunt, game of sardines or some other creative family fun? This set comes with 3 handsets that have a 3 mile range with 22 channels. Endless family fun if you ask me!

Aroma Putty

Silly putty with a scented twist! Fun for the kids (and adults) to play with tons of loves scents to choose from!
