I don't know about you, but I'm in full "Christmas planning" mode here. I can't believe it's only the beginning of December because already I'm all in! I have some of the presents wrapped, more are ordered, I'm planning where we'll be and what we'll do on Christmas eve and Christmas day.... it's amazing! And even though I'm so ahead of myself this year - there are still things that seem like they're falling through the cracks.
One of those being Santa! Now, I'll be completely honest, I'm a bit up in the air on the whole "Santa" thing. I love the mystery and the fun - but I don't like the idea of "lying" to my kids. I'm trying to ride that fine line of playing along and encouraging the spirit of giving and generosity and magical imagination-land ... while at the same time making sure that I don't come right out and say that some fat guy breaks into the house at night and eats our cookies! HA! Cuz let's be honest - If there are cookies gone in the morning, it was most definitely me who ate them!!
Yet in all my theoretical undecidedness, we will still wake up on Christmas morning to celebrate the birth of Jesus with more presents in the living room than there were the night before. and I tell ya...the past few days? Those empty stockings have been mocking me! I was at a loss for what to put in them this year!!
However, YOU won't have to have that problem because I'm here for ya! I have scoured the internet and many of my awesome resources and come up with Thee
Top 12 Stocking Stuffers of 2012!
(yep, 12 for '12!)
That's right. Search no further. If you need stocking stuffers for curly hair, stocking stuffers for kids, or just creative stocking stuffers - this is the list you need! I'll babble no longer... here it is! (in no particular order)
Duct tape?! You bet! It's all the rage - and now I know why. I had no idea you could make a hairbow this eye catching out of duct tape! Huffleblossoms doesn't only do duct tape of course, they have necklaces for adults and other hair accessories as well. Be sure to support this mom and daughter team! Santa would definitely choose Huffleblossoms as his Christmas elves if I had anything to say about it.
If you have curly hair and live in a cold climate - these hats are a Must Have! Lined with satin, they are gentle on your curls and leave your hair looking lovely even after you take off your hat. Curly Zebra hats will keep you in style, your ears warm, and your hair beautiful all season long!
Be sure to order by Dec. 14th to ensure a Christmas delivery
