Are you down to the last small items on your Christmas shopping to-do list and feeling a little ho-ho-hopeless? Since you’ve been on-the-go for the past few weeks with Christmastime obligations and responsibilities – amidst a worldwide pandemic, nonetheless – you might be feeling a little tired as you reach the end of the road, and that’s okay. We, at Shadow Bend Apartments, are here to help. Let us take the hassle out of thinking of those last-minute stocking stuffers this year with these 4 thoughtful recommendations.
A Tin of Seasonal Tea
Not everyone is a coffee drinker, and even if they are, sometimes, it’s nice to unwind with the alternative hot cup of tea. The good thing about tea is that there is plenty to choose from. Go with a holiday blend, like Hot Cinnamon Spice or Peppermint Herbal, or give the gift of more traditional flavors, such as Earl Gray, Chamomile, or Darjeeling. Just make sure you’re aware of how your recipient brews their tea, and purchase either sachets or loosely based on their preference!
A Small, Scented Candle
When in doubt, a candle makes a great gift! Downsize it for your designated stocking with a smaller candle by brands, like Voluspa. These candles come in mini tins and feature Japanese-inspired designs with bold colors. The candles range in scents from Baltic Amber and Lavender to Prosecco Bellini and Goji Tarocco Orange. Plus, all of the candles are hand-poured in the U.S. with a proprietary coconut wax blend that is free of phthalates, parabens, and sulfate and have a 25-hour burning time!
A Soothing Face Mask
Moisturizing masks have become all the rage in recent years, and you can find them everywhere from Walmart to Sephora. Face masks contain certain ingredients to treat various skin ailments, whether it’s hyaluronic acid for dry skin, antioxidants for fine lines, or salicylic acid for acne and blemishes. While a face mask isn’t as important as cleansing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen, it is a welcomed addition to any skincare routine and is an excellent choice for anyone’s stocking.
A Bath Bomb
Bath bombs are synonymous with self-care! Not only does a bath bomb add emollients and softeners to your bath’s water to moisturize and indulge your skin, but they also bless your bathtub with gorgeous colors and intoxicating scents. Fizzy, fun, and easy to find, bath bombs are popular, fun to use, and make the perfect last-minute stocking stuffer during the 2020 holiday season. So, load up your loved one’s stocking with one or two of these babies, and they’ll be set for a night of relaxation!
