Growing up, stocking stuffers usually included chapstick and underwear, which I honestly didn’t mind at all. Lip Smackers was a cult classic when I was a teen. Dr. Pepper flavor anyone? But then, I’m dating myself. Moving on. . .
Now days I like to have a mix of fun, and also healthy and useful gifts. That includes what goes into my family’s stockings.
Stockings were always a huge deal growing up. Those flimsy stocking holders they sell at the stores had nothing on us. Seriously, who uses those? We needed nails to hold our babies up. They were filled to the brim!

Healthy & Useful stocking stuffer ideas
Stocking stuffers are truthfully more fun for me to find than traditional, under the tree presents. It’s like a challenge. How much can I actually fit into that stocking? If you’re like me then you’ll love the options listed below. I’ll share where I feel each item will fit best in said stocking. The toe, foot, heal, leg or cuff. This is seriously business people. Sit up straight! Take notes! Here we go.
You realize I’m kidding right? Maybe pour yourself some wine. What? I don’t care if it’s 10am! 😉 Only joking . . . kind of . . .
Bonus: All the options I’m sharing you can grab off Amazon while sitting on your couch or in bed on your phone. I’m here to make things as easy as possible. I understand that mom life!
These are great stocking stuffers! They fit perfectly into the toe of the stocking. Come January we all need to de-stress and unwind. Diffusing some great, high quality essential oils are a perfect way to start the process!
*Essential oils are an adult only gift. I think we already all know that but just to cover the basis.
Some of my favorite oils and blends to diffuse are:
I have and love this kit! It really is uplifting. In January my mood is essential broke and tired, so I need all the help I can get to stay positive. 😉 One of the best parts about this kit is how inexpensive it is. You can also break it up into the four oils and simply give one per stocking.
This blend is made with Orange Oil, Tangerine Oil, Lavender Oil, Chamomile Oil, Ylang Ylang Oil, and Sandalwood Blend. It’s perfect for diffusing in the evenings to help wind down or spritzing the sheets with before you hit the hay.
This sent is citrus with a slightly spicy undertone. It’s meant to be diffused to help with energizing, focusing, and soothing. Won’t we all need that come January 1st?
Lavender is a must have in my humble opinion. I use it constantly since Lavender is known to be great at combating anxiety, which I struggle with, especially in stressful times of the year.
And just in case you don’t have a diffuser or need another, my favorite is the NOW® Stainless Steel Diffuser. It’s so sleek, classy, and runs for 7 hours continuously!
If you follow me over on Instagram then you’ve heard me mention these multiple times in my stories. I love with a deep passion all the NOW® snack mixes. They are drool worthy and make me so happy. Seriously. The devotion I have to these snacks is huge. Do I sound obsessed? Good, because it’s true. Throw a bag into your own stocking as well as your families or friends. You’ll all become just as crazy about them as me. These snack mixes are perfect for the leg or cuff portion of your stocking.
Living healthier is usually part of everyones New Years resolutions, and what better way to help family and friends out on that endeavor than to include some awesome safe and quality toiletries and beauty products in their stockings? These would all fit well in the foot of the stocking.
Maybe toothpaste as a stocking stuffer isn’t everyones jam? I wouldn’t mind it in mine, but I’m weird like that! This is my favorite flavor, though they have several. It’s fluoride free and formulated from the purest ingredients. I’ve toured the NOW® facility just outside of Chicago and I’m telling you, these products are top notch!
I’ve been crazy natural about my kids teeth. The only toothpaste they’ve ever used is this brand and the Jack and Jill Natural Toothpaste. Honestly though the XyliWhite is a lot less expensive but in my opinion, still great quality. Plus my kids love it! They tried Colgate kids once (it came from the dentist) and Tyrion started dry heaving from the taste and that was the end of that!
Magnesium spray is great for the active people in your life. This is a treasure in my cabinet. I use it almost daily on my tension neck issues and love how it works.
This whole charcoal line is a great quality and price. It’s an awesome option for a teen just trying to figure out their skincare routine. I talk more in depth about the charcoal line in this post. It’s a perfect option for multiple skin types. It also fits well in the food and leg of the stocking. 😉
Honestly I could go on and on because most of what NOW® makes would fit in a stocking, and you can jump over to their site and check them all out! I’m solid in the fact that the above products would make great stuffers for many of your friends and family, so stuff away!
How do I know these products are good?
My family and I use everything I’ve listed above and it has my seal of approval. These products are in my home not only because I love them, but because I trust the company that stands behind them. Truly, when you purchase any of these items you can relax knowing they come from quality you can trust.
