Stuff Your Stockings (with our great ideas)!

Of course, kids are always excited about what they are going to get for Christmas. It’s even more exciting (at least to me) when I see them shopping for their siblings or parents. How thoughtful! We have gifts that even piggy banks can afford!

There’s still time to pick up a gift basket, order a deli tray, grab some Christmas candy or get a plate of homemade Christmas cookies.

We will be closing early on Christmas Eve at 3 and will be closed on Christmas Day.

Great Gift Ideas for Stockings

Body Care
Lipbalm – all natural – I love this stuff because it works great!
Deodorant, Sugar Scrub, Body Creme – organic and natural – great for those with sensitive skin
Lotion & Soap – hand made in many different scentsFor Sweet “Tooths”
Most of our Christmas items come in snacking containers which fit in your cup holder. How handy for snacking, how handy for stockings! Chocolate, gummis and hard candies are also great options!

For the Cheese Whiz
Our Smoked Cheddar and Green Onion cheeses comes in small no-refrigeration-needed packages which are perfect for stockings. We also have yummy specialty cheeses great for stockings too.

Coffee
Whole bean, ground, regular, decaf, flavored or plain, we have so many options. Because this coffee is chemical-free, it doesn’t leave you with a dry mouth or a sore stomach.

And the Little Extras
Neccos (remember those?)
Peppermint Sticks
Individually Wrapped Chocolates
Top it all with sprinkles. Everyone needs sprinkles.
