Stocking stuffer ideas for moms - Little Green Book of Mother's Wisdom Gift book by Carissa Bonham
Little Green Book of Mothers' Wisdom - signed by the author!
This small gift-size book is a tiny hardcover book with a cloth spine - definitely nice enough for giving any mother in your life - even if she isn't *your* mother

I just happen to be the editor of this lovely collection of inspirational quotes by and about mothers. I've put it together with some of my favorite art that encompasses all the different feelings that motherhood stirs in us.

No need to give Amazon any of your money - shop small and buy it directly from the author - I'll even sign it for you (no charge) and ship it to you for free! Buy it from me in my Etsy shop here! (want to see the insides? I have a video of me flipping through it on the Etsy listing as well)

personalized rainbow pencils that say Colin from C&A Creations
Engrave her name or a motivational saying on a rainbow collection of pencils. Is her favorite color green? You can also choose to have the set be all one color! Buy them from C & A Creations on Etsy here.
Stocking stuffer idea for grown ups - one last fuck to give in a tiny jar
One Last F**k to Give (in a tiny glass jar)
Now, this gift may not be for everybody, but this is a stocking stuffer guide for adult women. And if the woman in your life is like most of us, she is just plain out of f*cks to give. 

If your gift recipient is running low on f**ks or is just plain out, she could probably use an emergency stash in her stocking! 

These tiny little f**ks come in miniature glass bottles and cost less per-f**k, the more you buy. So buy a set of 10 or 15 so you can share with your friend and make sure everyone you love always has one last f**k to give on hand in case of emergencies. Buy a stash of spare back-up f*cks on Etsy here.

Laundry Detergent Refills from Truly Free
If you are shopping for stocking stuffers for a college student, young adult, or someone getting ready to travel overseas, this is the super pragmatic gift that they will absolutely appreciate. (don't get me wrong, moms love laundry detergent - but maybe get mom something nicer than detergent we all know will end up doing that family laundry?)

Truly Free is the same laundry detergent I have been using in my home for years. It's free of phthalates and other sketchy junk, really works and refills come in these small envelopes - which are perfect for both reducing waste and letting you cram a whole year's worth of laundry detergent into a stocking! 

You definitely can't do that with one of those Costco-size plastic jugs that are mostly water and not even recyclable. Stock up on laundry detergent and get 300 loads for free on the Truly Free website!

This tabletop jewelry organizer slides together in two separate pieces that ship flat and make it easy to slide into her stocking on Christmas morning. 

Choose from maple or ebony wood veneer to be the finish on this jewelry organizer that can hold rings on the fingers but it can also stack watches, bracelets and scrunchies around the tall arm base. For a small additional fee, the Etsy seller will also engrave a name on the base or the palm.

With a little advance notice, you can also order this item in order wood finishes or even colors of acrylic. Buy it in the C&A Creations Etsy Store here.

Ideas for adult stocking stuffers - foaming hand soap and hand soap refills
Getting stocking stuffers you can really use is always welcome - and SOAP is a hot item - especially this year! This is the same nontoxic, moisturizing hand soap I use in my home. 

It's great as-is (it's unscented) or add a few drops of your favorite essential oil (I'm currently using the RMO Warm and Cozy blend) to mix things up.

There is a limited time promotion for "buy one get three free" - so be sure to grab soap and refills for stockings as well as staying quarantine prepared at home.

Hot chocolate bombs are all the rage this year. These can cost $5-$13 each in stores or on Etsy but they aren't hard to make! Whip up a batch for your girlfriend or sister and customize them with their favorite flavors!

Handmade Trinket and Ring Dishes from Plot Twist Pottery
I have multiple trinket dishes from Plot Twist Pottery and I love them all. She has lots of shapes and colors to choose from and is currently running a buy two get one free special. So it's the perfect time to get one for all the women on your gift list or even multiples for the same woman (I have one by the kitchen sink, one in the bathroom and one on my desk!). Buy a handcrafted trinket or ring dish from Plot Twist Pottery Here.

I use one of these and love it. My hair is long so in the shower it can be hard to get my shampoo or conditioner worked all the way through my hair. It also helps increase circulation to your scalp and helps with dry or flaky scalp issues - no matter how short or long your hair is.

Personalized necklace stocking stuffer idea
Support a small business and get personalized jewelry for her at the same time. This particular necklace from IrinSkye can be personalized with her initial and either her gemstone or just her favorite color.

If your gift recipient is a mom, she might love a personalized mother's necklace, with an initial from each of her kids along with their birth stones.

Stocking stuffer idea for her - a cute custom ring or thumb ring
I ordered a ring for myself from this Etsy shop earlier this year and I was so impressed by the quality of what I got for the price I paid! 

I had both of my kids and my husband write their first initial on a white piece of paper and draw a heart around it.

I snapped picture with my cell phone, lined them up in a line and sent the image to Caitlyn and her team and I ended up with a beautiful custom sterling silver ring that I wear on my right hand as my family ring with the initials of the three people I love the most. Definitely check out this Etsy shop for more custom jewelry from handwriting, kids drawings and more.

Owl webcam cover stocking stuffer idea from Uncommon Goods
If you've ever joined a video meeting and realized too late that you're—EEEEK!—not camera-ready, you need this bird to watch out for you. This adorable Canadian-made silicone apple is universally compatible with Chromebooks, PCs and Apple products.

Pink pearl Earrings from Brilliant Earth
Get her something she may not already have in her jewelry box. This beautifully matched pair of rose colored, freshwater cultured pearls are mounted on silver posts. These elegant, organic pearls feature brilliant luster and shine with traditional grace and beauty. Shop Brilliant Earth's assortment of ethical, giftable jewelry here.

Stocking stuffer ideas for wife or mom - leather gloves from kohls
These women's faux-fur cuff leather gloves from Cuddl Duds are sure to quickly become her favorite new winter-weather staple accessory. They are touch screen compatible and feature cozy faux fur cuff to keep out the winter chill. Buy them online at Kohls. Vegan? Real leather not her style? These faux leather, vegan gloves might be a better fit instead!

These rose gold charging cables are my favorite. They are durable and 6 feet long so they can usually reach from the outlet to where you actually want to be with your device. Charging cables break or get lost all the time and everyone can always use high quality charging cables!

Gemstone essential oil roller bottle tops make great stocking stuffers for her
If she uses essential oils, she will love these natural gemstone roller bottle tops. This set comes with ten different gemstone tops and a tool to easily remove the tops to swap out.

These are compatible with most 10mL roller bottles to allow her to mix or dilute her own essential oil blends and top them with a gemstone roller.

flower flavored elixirs for tea or champagne
These flower flavored elixirs with flavors like rose, jasmine, orange blossom and more enhance either tea (hot or cold!) or champagne. Or be creative! The set comes with five different flavors to help you load up one stocking or to split up and share.

This old school beauty tool is hot right now! Women everywhere are rediscovering the benefits of using natural rose quartz rollers.

From improving the absorption of their skincare products to reducing inflammation and puffiness, rose quartz rollers have become popular with women looking for natural solutions to skincare.

In addition to the practical uses in her skincare routine, your special lady will feel pretty and luxurious with this beautiful stone tool on her counter.

Stocking stuffer ideas - personalized colored pencils in a wood slide top box case
In the Creative Green Living Etsy shop I have something perfect for the people in your life who like to color or do art to destress - customized colored pencils packed in a durable wood case with their name engraved on it! Buy it in my Etsy shop here.

These would pair great with a coloring book for adults like Color Your Own Happy from my friend, Jen Goode or the 2023 Weekly Coloring Planner from Johanna Basford.

Stocking stuffer idea for adults - personal essential oil diffuser from rocky mountain oils
This pocket-sized essential oil diffuser is great for carrying on the go or keeping handy on your desk or nightstand. I keep mine at my computer with water and a couple drops of Peppermint Mocha essential oil blend for a mid-day work pick-me-up!

Andalou naturals Instant hydration dydro serum facial mask 1000 roses with fruit stem cells
This hydrating sheet mask is powered by fruit stem cells and alpine rose stem cells to create a soothing, hydrating experience.

This sheet mask is Fair-Trade, Gluten-Free, Cruelty-Free, Eco-Friendly, Vegetarian and Vegan and 100% Non-GMO Project Verified personal care. And 100% Creative Green Living approved.

Night lights made from crystals like Amethyst, rose quartz and quartz
Bring the beauty and power of your favorite crystals into her home with these light sensor nightlights. These are so much prettier than their plan plastic cousins! Choose from amethyst, rose quartz and quartz.

mimosa and champagne cocktail mixer cubes for stocking stuffers
Drop these flavor-packed sugar cubes into a glass of champagne for an instant cocktail. Teetotalling? These would also be delightful in sparkling water. Flavor options include peach, raspberry, strawberry, arcadia orange, grapefruit or lemon.

Silver mandala essential oils wearable diffuser locket
Aromatherapy Diffuser Locket
This locket comes with several different pads that can be used to hold drops of your favorite essential oils. I personally wear mine when traveling because I am prone to motion sickness. Having a few drops of peppermint essential oil or a tummy soothing blend on the pad helps calm a queasy travel tummy.

amethyst ring for stocking stuffer
Amethyst Ring
This pretty ring is on my personal wish list. Georgia-based jeweler, RingCrush sells lots of cool rings that you can mix and match. This purple amethyst ring is my personal favorite but she has lots of other great options in your lady's favorite colors.

How to make Lush bath bombs - Lush inspired bath bomb recipe with activated charcoal
Activated Charcoal Bath Bombs
Activated charcoal is great for your skin. It helps absorb excess oil and draw out toxins.

Impress your gift recipient by making her a batch of detoxifying bath bombs inspired by her favorites from Lush! Get the bath bomb recipe here.

Pro tip: Do not give this to your wife or girlfriend if you have recently had a fight or you think she is mad at you.

An angry, sensitive or otherwise emotionally vulnerable woman who gets coal in her stocking will only become more upset and it will not end well for you. Trust me. Just ask my former husband. Ahem.

(of course, if it's your sister, she probably deserves the coal anyway!)

(not crafty? Don't want to make your own bath bombs? Pick up similar pre-made bath bombs on Etsy!)

Smart Wool makes my favorite socks of all time. Wool socks keep your feet cozy and dry and through some kind of witchcraft, help your feet not stink. Unlike some wool socks, these are not bulky and are suitable for everyday wear.

These socks come in lots of different colors. Choose her favorite color for what will surely become her favorite socks to wear all season.

Lush inspired blue bath bomb with sprinkles
Bath bombs are the perfect way to make her alone time in the bath extra. Learn how to make bath bombs (these ones feature sprinkles and smell like bubble gum!) or buy some hand crafted bath bombs from an artisan on Etsy.

Gabriel cosmetics lip gloss in ambrosia make a great stocking stuffer for her
You may not know that many lip glosses (including natural and organic brands) are contaminated with lead. This is legal and totally unregulated by the FDA so buyers need to do their own due diligence.

Gabriel makes some of my favorite lead-free lip gloss. They are also phthalate and paraben free, making them a Creative Green Living favorite.

fun prints on emery boards for stocking stuffers
I know I am not the only woman who is consistently losing her nail files! Most of us need a purse nail file, a home nail file, a car nail file and few extras for back up. Whether she has natural nails or always has a manicure, having extra nail files on hand is always appreciated!

Travel Size poo-pourri spray bottle as stocking stuffer for adult
This non-toxic, chemical free formula traps stinky odors in the toilet to prevent embarrassment. It's a little bit of a silly gift, so I would't do this one for someone you have just started dating but it's great stocking stuffer for a sister, wife or daughter.

Sterling silver fidget ring makes a great stocking stuffer for women
Can she just not sit still? If she has ADD or ADHD like I do, she'll love having a ring like this. It's way less child like than a fidget spinner and it's fashionable at the same time! I love mine and wear it every day.

a variety of pop socket phone holders as stocking stuffers for women
A pretty Pop Socket
Pop Sockets come in all kinds of pretty designs. They will help her hold on to her phone so she is less likely to drop it while using it. It also serves as a convenient way to prop the phone on its side if she wants to lay it down to watch a video.

Organic mint tea from Republic of Tea
This soothing peppermint tea is perfect for any cold winter evening. It's not caffeinated so it won't keep her awake at night. It's also great for  helping support digestion after Christmas feasting. 

Tohi night's rest hand and body cream
This soothing hand and body cream uses the power of lavender, patchouli, ylang ylang and sandalwood essential oils to help you relax and get ready for a great night of sleep.

I massaged it onto my hands, neck and chest and I fell asleep faster than I have in weeks!

bottles of organic essential oils from Rocky Mountain Oils - lavender, tea tree, orange, peppermint, lemon and frankincense
If she's interested in essential oils for cleaning, diffusing or other uses, she'll love the organic essential oil line from Rocky Mountain Oils. The oils I personally use most often are lavender, orange, peppermint and lemon.

Teal make up eraser soap free make up remover wash cloth
The Make Up Eraser is a great way to remove makeup and exfoliate your skin with just water. It works for years without needing to be replaced. I love this pretty teal color but they come in lots of fun prints, too.

Ocho Organic Dark Chocolate Caramel Chocolates
Chocolate always seems like a no-brainer to add to her stocking but I wanted to highlight a brand I love. My favorite Ocho chocolate is the dark chocolate filled with caramel. And since it's organic, I'm pretty sure that the calories don't count.
