2020 Gift guide
for the stocking
DECEMBER 10, 2020
Today, we are looking at the birmingham place 2020 gift guide for the stocking.
I love putting together stockings. I tend to go a little overboard (oops!) but there’s something so fun about filling them up with little treasures I know everyone will love.
For more ideas, check our other gift guides here and below.
LOVE LIVES HERE
I’ve shared on instagram before that this is my favorite book on creating a home. It has nothing to do with how it looks, and everything to do with how it feels – how the people who walk in the doors feel. This is a special book to me and I highly recommend it to everyone.
Grub Rub Seasoning
This is the best seasoning. Hands down. Our favorite way to use it? A trick we got from some friends – sprinkle it over thick bacon and bake it in the oven. It caramelizes and OMG… so good.
Pre-made Mini Cocktail
I saw these at a local liquor store and love the mini size. You could put them all in one stocking or if you have a lot of adults in the family, could divide and give everyone one or two each. If your store doesn’t have them, these mixers from Target are pretty cute.
Car Cleaning Wipes
Kyle has been more concerned about keeping his car clean in the last few years and while he has rags and sprays at home, these would be great to keep in the glove box while he’s on the road.
FOR THE KIDS
I usually include a watch in our kid’s stockings. Truthfully, they tend to break or get lost but they love them while they last and are inexpensive enough for it to not be a huge deal.
We play Uno all the time in our house. Both our 6-year-old and 4-year-old can easily play, and our 4-year-old has the longest winning streak. The games go fast enough that we can easily fit in a round or two after dinner and before bed. Great way to work on colors and numbers, too!
Anyone else’s kids love bandaids and treat them like stickers? That’s how it goes in our house so these are always a hit. If Target has them in the dollar section, I always stock up.
ella + mila nail polish
I like this nail polish for my daughter because it’s a clean product and since she sucks her thumb (we are working on that!), I don’t worry about it too much with this. It doesn’t last super long, like it claims but it’s easy enough to remove and re-apply.
A few other ideas I like to include are:
socks • candy • bath/shower products • underwear • new coffee mug or travel mug • travel-size cologne/purfume • lip balm • jewelry • play dough • make-up • small candles • mini liquor bottles • lottery tickets • $5 coffee gift cards
