Stocking Stuffers

Stocking stuffers can be some of the most enjoyable gifts at Christmas. They aren’t on anyone’s list. They are simply a joyous surprise. When choosing the perfect stocking stuffer think of what the activities the person likes, things that may pamper, or simply things you think are fun.

Zoya nail polish has a set of four neutral polishes in half sizes for $24. Splurge and get the Zoya nail repair four bottle set for another $24. If you want another option there is a rose palette full size set of five different rose tones plus a moist lip color for $56.

Merle Norman has created a silver or gold celebration shadow quad in an attractive sparkle case for $38. Just for fun drop a few single color shades in her stocking for her to experiment with. Gloves in a Bottle ($7) protects men’s and women’s hands from constant hand washing. It doesn’t wash off; it has to exfoliate off.

All ages enjoy mind teasers. Try a tin ($10) to test their ability to sole the puzzle. Is there a music lover on your list? Our German made music boxes ($13) delight young and old.

Perhaps you have people who love to cook. Savory cracker mixes, jellies and jams, cake decoration toppers, and even pitchers that gurgle all make fun, unexpected gifts. Of course, a gift card to Morgan Fitzgerald’s is always a winner.
