10 Must Have Stocking Stuffers For The Party Girl

One of my favorite things to shop for at the holidays are stocking stuffers. (I figure, it's only fair to help the big man out with an item or two.) I think stocking stuffers are so fun and many times more personal than the main attraction gifts. So after Jennifer at Passion for Parties wrote a post about the 10 Things that Every Party Girl Should Have On Her Christmas List, I decided to make my own list to compliment hers.

Below is my list of  10 Must Have Stocking Stuffers For The Party Girl.

10. Believe by Dan Zadra & Kobi Yamada- $12.95
I love being able to flip open a book and read an encouraging word. I keep this in my kitchen and thumb through many times a week.

9. Proctor Silex 33015 1-1/2-Quart Round Slow Cooker- $19.35
Please form a single file line when you all arrive to my house to kiss me on my face. : P A crock pot on the warm setting is the EASIEST and quickest way to melt chocolate (again, use the warm setting!). It stays at the perfect temperature for the entire time you dip and the smaller size of the mini crock pot makes your dipping well deeper. Plus, this is also handy when serving a warm dip (think Superbowl parties, ladies).

8. Himalayan pink salt truffles, 15 pc. by Vintage Confections on Etsy- $17
I don't think this needs much explanation. The combination of the sweet and the salty is so totally out of this world. Include these on a dessert table for a sophisticated treat, or keep them as a secret stash for after your party guests go. ; )

7. OPI Pretty and Privileged Nail Lacquer- $6.99
I don't really enjoy getting a manicure. Isn't that terrible? But I do LOVE having my nails painted for a special event. I think it's the final touch on putting a party and yourself together. This bright red is always a fav of mine and perfect for the holidays.
6. Ellia C. Naturals One Lump Or Two Sugar Scrub- $10
I'm feeling relaxed and pampered just reading about this sugar scrub! I would love to see anything from the Ellia C. Naturals product line in my stocking, but the idea of a single serving of body scrub tickles my fancy.
5. Curly Girl Design Iphone Skin- $6
My phone has basically become a part of my body. What sweet and simple reminder to carry around with you where ever you may go.

Why spend all of the time and money on a beautiful invitation or card only to add a sloppy return address? (I won't lie, I'm guilty of this.) For you local Marylanders, you can purchase one at my favorite spot, Paper in the Park.

3. Wild Hibiscus in Syrup- $11
What a beautiful way to dress up champagne! You'll love these at your New Years Eve Soiree or any fancy pants party.

2. Dainty Paper Flower Ring by Blush Envy- $25
Well, this is just adorable. This would be fun to wear while hostessing a party, but I love this enough to wear it every day.

1. Wish Lanterns- $27.99 for a set of 10
I saw these in action at a rehearsal dinner recently. What fun! And the perfect way to start off the New Year.

I'm a little late on this post, but I hope it benefits someone, somewhere. Happy Shopping to one and all!


  1. Great ideas! I also dislike getting a manicure, I hate sitting still for that long!!!

  2. Thanks, Jackie! I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't do the manicure thing.. : )

  3. Even though school started a few months ago, it is still a good idea to stock up and buy classroom supply as stocking stuffers for Christmas. This ensures that your child never runs out of their school supply and gives you an idea of what to fill your child's stockings!

  4. Cup kate name kind of cute. I was thinking to hire someone for my event. And after seeing her art i am surely going to hire this. Thankyou for sharing.
