Can you believe it's only 15 days until Christmas? I have most of my Christmas shopping done, which is amazing for me. There have been times in my life that I was running around on Christmas eve looking for anything that would do. I love to give gifts, but I'm not always good about choosing just the right thing. Part of that is my frugal nature. I dislike waste and clutter so when I choose a gift it has to be practical, beautiful and a good value.
I'm still in a quandry about what to put in the Christmas stockings at my house. Here are some of the things I've done in the past:
small sewing kit
box of crayons and coloring book
pocket sized notebook
novelty yarn (for my knitting daughter)
This year I'd love to put in crayon rolls for easy art transport. I'm a little worried about finding the sewing time. I'd also love to buy each one of my kids an invisible ink spy pen with black light decoder. (I want one too!) I'm having trouble finding the deal I want. http://www.lovetolearn.net/catalog/detail/pen/5 has them for $7 each, but that's a pricey stocking stuffer if I buy one for everyone.
So, I'm calling for help! Write a comment with your stocking stuffer ideas and I promise not to send spoiler messages to your kids. Just to say thank you I'll draw one name and send the lucky winner a little something for her own stocking: A beautiful Mary Kay lip gloss in any color of her choice. Winner will be chosen December 18th. To check out your color options visit my website: http://www.marykay.com/angelacoffman/default.aspx
