Christmas goodies, ornaments and stocking stuffers

Christmas season can’t be complete without some goodies, ornaments and of course stocking stuffers. I wanted to share a few things that I have been asked to look at lately.








Cookies at Christmas time don’t have calories right? Well, that’s at least what I keep telling myself. This is the first time Lance Snacks has come out with a holiday cookie called Seasonal Favorites. Let me tell you, these are so good. There are 3 flavors to choose from:

  • Chocolate Nekot® Cookies with Mint Filling
  • Nekot® Cookies with Pumpkin Cheesecake Filling
  • Sprinkled Sugar Cookies with Sweet Creme Filling





I was kind of expecting a soft outside, more like a cookie but it was more like a mix between a cookie and a cracker. If that makes any sense. I really liked the Chocolate with mint. It kind of reminded me of eating mint ice cream with brownie chunks in it.  To be honest, I wasn’t a huge fan of the Pumpkin Cheesecake BUT i’m not a fan of cheesecake anyway so that makes a difference. My husband really liked that one. My oldest daughter loved the Sprinkled Sugar Cookie ones, which i would have been shocked if she didn’t. Then there was my little 2 year old that wanted to steal them all, so I think it’s safe to bet she liked all three flavors. These are only on shelves for a limited time, so make sure you go get them now.



I love my fur babies, and all 3 of them are adopted. So when I see a great company like Fancy Feast working with Adopt-A-Pet, I really want to help them out. Right now they are selling these really cute porcelain ornaments. It is super simple, and just the shape of a cat head with ears. When you order one for only $2, 100% goes to Adopt-A-Pet. This is such a easy and inexpensive way to help out animals, and you get something really cute out of it as well.


In case you want to order through your paypal account. When you do so, you will be entered into their sweepstakes to win a ton of prizes. So this is very much a win win idea. I already ordered a few even though we only have one tree.




I think most families are like mine and are always needing more SD cards or flash drives. you can never really have to many as you never know when you will need one, or need to loan one with information on it. Now you can have a little fun with the flash drives and have it be Olaf from Frozen. He is my favorite character from the movie. All you have to do is pop his head off and stick that into your computer. When you are done you can store it with the rest of his body. The USB drive is 8 GB, so it does have enough memory for a lot of documents of pictures. This is such a cute idea for the techy is your family.






Mya is always asking me to put fun colors in her hair and such, but with such dark hair, it is very hard to do. Spaghetti Headz not only puts color in girl’s hair, it also adds some fun and a little charm at the end of it as well.


Even if your daughter has shorter hair, you can cut it to size (love this option). Being made from polymer clay, it is really easy to cut when you need to Plus if they don’t want it in the hair one day, they can still wear it as a cute little charm bracelet.


To put it into the hair, all you do is twist a small section, place that hair in the top loop and hold in place. Then with the other hand wrap the hair in a counterclockwise direction and it will wrap right around the hair. Once you do it a few times it is very easy. This is a great stocking stuffer at under $15!




Makeup is always a great stocking stuffer for girls. Marykayatplay is a really cute collection of mini nail polishes. 3 come in a box and are really cute. The ones I received were Inky Blue, Silver Sparkle and Pink Hottie. I’d say my favorite color is the Inky Blue, I always love blue.  All 3 colors are super cute and I think any girl would love them. The box is nice and small so it’s perfect for a stocking.



What girl who likes makeup doesn’t like lip gloss? I know my daughter loves it. So throwing in a few of Mary Kay’s nourishine plus lip gloss into the stocking will definitely make her smile. I received 3 different colors Shock Tart (pink) Sparkle Berry(reddish with sparkle) and golden (golden color with sparkle). After looking at them a little, I may only give her 2 and keel the golden for myself (shh).





I can’t forget about the boys. I have a hard time buying for boys, since I have 2 girls, but I don't know that my best friends son loves Minecraft along with just about any boy in the US. Jazwares has a great collection of Minecraft figures and toys. These little figures are perfect for a stocking and don’t break the bank either starting at around $9!

This is a brand of toys that you really can’t do wrong with when buying. Even by chance, if you buy them one they already have, I doubt any kid would mind as 2 is way better than one when playing action figures and video games.
