5 Days Until Christmas - A Nice Clean Christmas


Gift idea: Soap 

Makes a good gift for: Anyone – stocking stuffers, Twelve Days of Christmas gifts

Soap might sound like a crappy Christmas present – akin to getting socks from your grandma (although, for the record, I love getting socks and my mom usually gets me some every year). But soap is one of those things that comes in all shapes and scents, and if you look hard enough (I don’t think I need to plug Etsy again, but if I do, then there you go) you can find soap that is somehow personal for almost anyone. And I doubt I am speaking for myself alone when I say that I don’t buy nice soap for myself – just my standard Dove bar soap for the shower.

Below are some nice soaps I found online, but you by no means have to stick to the internet for soap – check out your local drugstore, Target or even the mall for stores like L’Occitaine, The Body Shop, etc.

8 Days Until Christmas - Toys for the Brain


Gift idea: Brain teaser puzzles 

Makes a good gift for: Stocking Stuffers/ Twelve Days Gifts

Recipients of all ages and abilities can enjoy one of these brain teaser puzzles. If the particular puzzle is too easy, it quickly becomes a competition to see who else can do it. If the puzzles is challenging, then the opportunity for team work opens up. Lots of toy stores carry these puzzles, and I bought some last Christmas at an office store. Keep your eyes open and you can find neat stuff in lots of stores!

9 Days Until Christmas - Sweets for the Sweeties


Gift idea: Candy 

Makes a good gift for: Anyone/ Stocking Stuffers/ Twelve Days Gifts

I certainly don’t have to tell you that everyone loves candy. And if I am wrong, well, you can get that person some carrots or something. I also don’t have to tell you where to shop for candy. You can go to the grocery store, the drug store, Target, See’s, or a local candy shop. Another great place to shop for candy, especially Christmas candy from around the world, is Cost Plus.

Here is just a small selection of the goodies you can expect to find at your local Cost Plus:



Chocolate Coins - $2.99 per bag

Chocolate Reindeer - four for $2.99

Chocolate Santas - ten for $2.99


Chocolate Snowmen - five for $3.99

10 Days Until Christmas - Candles to Light the Long Nights


Gift idea: Small Candles 

Makes a good gift for: Adults, Teens, Stocking Stuffers 

I love candles, especially well-scented candles (candles that don’t make you gag, but have a nice scent). Candles can make a nice gift on their own, or as part of a self-care package with some bubble bath and nice lotion. All of these little candles have the added bonus of being small enough to fit in a Twelve Days of Christmas Gift Box!

How cute are these small beeswax pinecone candles:
On Etsy - $3.00 each

These small votive candles would be perfect for someone who loves flowers or gardening:
On Etsy - set of eight for $12.00

These mirrored votive candles would look great on a dining-table or a mantel-piece:
National Geographic Store - set of four for $26.00

Big Dipper Wax Works has some of the best beeswax candles, and some of the best scented candles I have found, and this collection of their different scents would make a great gift:
Big Dipper Wax Works - set of nine for $40.00


11 Days Until Christmas - Mini Classic Toys


This Week's Gift Theme: Stocking Stuffers

Gift Idea: Classic Toys and Miniature Classic Toys

Makes a good gift for: Anyone/ Stocking Stuffers/ Twelve Days Gifts

Kids and kids at heart alike can appreciate find a fun little toy or two (or three or four) in their christmas stocking or in their Twelve Days Boxes. The idea here is to spend just a couple bucks on toys that still require some good old fashioned imagination. Most chain toy stores still carry some of these toys – think silly putty, bouncy balls, wind-up toys. And a small mom-and-pop type toy store would probably have an even better selection of classic toys and other small goodies.

You can also find a good selection online:

Silly Putty

From Amazon - $3.99

Parachute men
From Amazon - $9.03

Wind-up toys
From Amazon - $1.99 each

Chinese jump rope
From Amazon - $5.49

Jacks
From Amazon - $7.79
