Small, filler-type gifts are one of my favorite things about planning for birthdays and all the different holidays that we love to celebrate. Sometimes these small, inexpensive filler gifts will go into an overall gift basket. But, for Christmas they more often than not are destined for my kids’ Christmas stockings (unless they directly correlate with a larger gift).

For example, if I’m gifting a makeup organizer or beauty bag to one of my daughters, I might purchase bottles of nail polish/polish remover, nail files, eyeliner/mascara/eye shadow, makeup remover pads or other such items to put inside the organizer or bag before wrapping. However, if I’m not gifting a larger item like that, these smaller items will end up in their Christmas stockings along with the small treats or candies.

Some things I buy for stockings every year — a candy cane, chocolate candies like Hershey Kisses, a chocolate santa or reindeer, Christmas-themed suckers, etc. But, I truly thrive on finding totally unique items to also stick in there that I’ve never given before.

Here, I will be sharing some of the fun, unique items that are going into my kids’ stockings this year. They would also work great in gift baskets, too.

I can’t wait to see how they react! The first two items listed are snack foods. Since the holidays are inevitably full of sweet and high-calorie treats, I decided to share two snacks that are not only delicious and full of flavor but also healthy treat options! But, trust me, your loved ones won’t even know it because they will be so bowled over by the flavors.

Treat Yourself With Healthy Ice Cream

Summer may officially be coming to an end, but the fun isn’t quite over yet for my family. I’m a big fan of Stephen King. I’ve been reading his novels and watching screen adaptations of his work for many years. My oldest daughter has become a fan and borrowed many of his books from my bookshelf.

My husband has even gotten on the King train (sort of) and will watch with us sometimes. We most recently watched In The Tall Grass on Netflix, based on a horror novella written by Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill. I haven’t read the novella yet, and I thought the screen adaptation was good. But, I think my husband liked it even more than I did.

IT: Chapter 2 movie ticket stub

Our family (the kids are all teens and young adults now) recently went to the movie theater to watch Stephen King’s It: Chapter 2 together, followed by a family pizza night with ice cream for dessert.

The movie theater was giving out fun IT-themed popcorn buckets with a design of Pennywise’s signature red balloons on it. How cool is that?!

Stephen King's IT: Chapter 2 popcorn bucket

Re:THINK Ice Cream was a delicious, creamy treat to end our fun family night. It’s made with healthy ingredients for a dessert that doesn’t have to be sinful. We were delighted to find that all of the flavors we tried are so sweet and flavorful that we totally forgot we were eating something healthy.

First of all, Keto is the latest lifestyle trend because many are having such successful results! Being on the Ketogenic Diet for nearly two months now, I can definitely agree that it has made me feel much better and caused my energy to increase.

In contrast, it took some time for me to get used to such a new way of eating. For example, embracing butter and oils. For my entire life, I can only remember hearing about the benefits of a low fat diet. Adding coconut oil to my coffee and cooking with butter? The horror!… [read more]
