11 Indulgent Little Gifts to Stuff Into Your Own Stocking

Michele Zipp | Dec 1, 2016 Home & Garden

You probably won't forget to fill the stockings of those you love. But who's going to stuff yours? If Santa could use a little help filling it to the brim, pass him this list of pampering, healing, soothing, and spoiling little gifts -- or pick up a couple for yourself. They might just help you find some Zen this holiday.

Yep, these are gifts that will speak to your senses, help you de-stress, and let you enjoy a teeny bit of 'me time.'

Luckily, most of the prices are super low, allowing you to buy one for yourself and one for someone else. Don't want to gift yourself? Make sure your hints aren't too subtle -- you deserve these!

  • Lotus Elixir Aromatherapy Rollerball Perfume

    1

    Beautiful scents can do a lot for your senses; they can lift your mood and transform your day. These lovely rollerballs come in four scents. Choose Mudra for focus, which features a minty, nature green, white lily, rose, and violet scent. Or for strength, go wtih Shakti, a blend of eucalyptus, pink sage, mint, and moss. The Ananda for bliss is a mix of bergamot, black currant, citrus, mango, mossy woods, and patchouli. And the Bhakti is a zen combo of lily, rose, jasmine, amber, citrus, and white musk. We want them all.

  • Embroidered Caro Slippers

    2

    Slippers tend to be an after-thought, but not this holiday season. Pamper your favorite lady (or yourself) with these gorgeous slippers that have the ultimate cozy shearling inside.

  • Snow Globe Picture Frame

    4

    Picture frames always make a great gift, but they can get tired and boring. A snow globe picture frame, however, is a supremely more interesting way to showcase any photo. It sure would look adorable decorating a work desk.

  • MAST Brothers Chocolate London Collection

    5

    For the sweetheart in your life: chocolate. The MAST Brothers London collection includes chocolate bars with juniper berry, tea and milk, rhubarb, and our favorite dark chocolate. Try not to buy one for yourself (or just go for it).

    6

    Not only are these coffee (or tea) mugs beautifully shaped in lovely colors, but they each feature a healing stone. Choose from the powers of tiger's eye, citrine, rose quartz, or clear quartz. It might be the most 'magical' cup ever.

  • Yes Way, Rose Roses Gummy Candy

    7

    Candy isn't just a gift for kids. Here, we have the adult version of gummy bears in the form of gummy roses infused with rose wine. Yes, please!

  • Unicorn Cat Travel Mug

    10

    We know coffee sometimes just isn't enough -- we need some burst of happiness so why not give just that in the form of a caticorn? Sure to bring a smile to any mom's face, this 12-ounce ceramic travel mug is magic.

  • Hoku Amulet Rosary Choker

    11

    Jewelry is always an incredible gift, but pieces that carry spiritual meaning ... that's even more amazing. We're digging the design of this amulet. Hoku means star, and this symbol is a reminder to reach for a higher state of being. You can go with a turquoise stone, which is protective and considered lucky. Or a black tourmaline that is known to carry cleansing properties that remove negative energy. Both are stunning.
