Our Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide for 20155:09 PM
We have been scaling back a bit on what we give our kids for the holidays; with 6 of them, we can get overwhelmed with all the shopping that takes place. This also means that we spend more time with what Santa puts into their stockings, however. We really want the experience of the stocking to be a memorable one!
That's why I'm so happy to share my favorite picks for this year's Stocking Stuffer gift guide. These are all items we would be thrilled for Santa to surprise us with this year!
If you have a little artist in your house, this is the perfect gift! A pack of Kwik Stix gives kids the chance to explore and create with temporary paint, without the mixing and mess! Just uncap each stick and "paint" paper, poster board, or wood! They are simple to use and even better to store. I love how bright they are -- just like the tempera paints we used in grade school!
They dry in just 60 seconds and won't require you to lay out a bunch of newspapers and get smocks out every time the kids want to paint! These are a must for homeschoolers! Get this brilliant product at The Pencil Grip website, starting at $5.99!
Star Wars Band-Aids
My kids are getting hurt. All. The. Time. I guess it's par for the course with boys, but it sure makes it difficult to keep Band-Aids in stock! These limited-edition Star Wars boxes aren't just very cool, they also help ease the trauma of scraped knees and slivers that are far too common here on the farm!
Which design do you love best? You can find these anywhere Band-Aids are sold, or snag them from Amazon for $2.69 each box!
Kids needs games during the holidays, and games that also build on critical thinking skills are parents' choice! Lexigo Rush is that perfect game, giving kids portable fun to take anywhere you go this holiday season, but also reinforcing those spelling skills that will take them anywhere in life, too!
But that's not all you'll get with this fast-paced game; it also comes with a free app to take the game play to another level! Find it at Amazon for $13.97.
Tombow Adhesive Tapes
If you're crafty and you know it, you'll need this nifty product from Tombow that fits perfectly in your stocking! It's like those white-out tapes we used to use, but with the kind of adhesive needed for scrapbooks, paper crafts, and anything you need a quality tape for! They have different varieties for different projects, but all of them are easy for right or left-handed people to use!

Nixall First Aid Spray
What do cyclists, dog-lovers, and babysitters have in common? They all have a need for the unique and highly-effective line of cleaning and first-aid products from Nixall! The first aid product works by oxygenating the skin, and frequent and regular applications help to accelerate the process allowing your skin to return back to its normal and healthy state. It has no foul odor and can fit inside your purse or first-aid kit!
There's also a solution for your pet's skin and coat! See the entire Nixall line at their website!
Kuhn Rikon Ratchet Safety LidLifter
My hands aren't what they used to be, but I refuse to use can openers designed for the elderly. The Kuhn Rikon is fashionable enough to be in any modern young women's kitchen, but it takes very little movement to make it work -- so my grandma can use it, too! A simple back-and-forth motion is all it takes - no twisting, and the LidLifter design keep sharp edges in the past.
You can also open pop tabs with ease! Get it or $20 at kuhnrikonshop.com.
Bahlsen Holiday Cookies
Santa always brings us something sweet (besides that orange in the toe of our stocking). This year, he can delight the little ones and grown-ups alike with the special holiday assortments available from Bahlsen! I remember making Pfeffernusse with my Grandma growing up (a Danish tradition), but these aren't like Grandma's! They have decadent icing, chocolate, and other amazing flavors to create a most magical holiday experience!
Start some new holiday traditions this year with your own plate of Bahlsen cookies! They are available at grocery stores for a very limited time, or you can find them at the Bahlsen website!
