With just two weeks left until Christmas, it’s time to stock up on Stocking Stuffers if you haven’t yet. I love stocking stuffers — they might just be one of my favorite (material) aspects of the holidays. I love how the small, usually inexpensive items can delight and set a tone for the day ahead in the early hours of Christmas morning. I like hunting for stocking stuffers and opening them myself from my own stocking. This year, I have lots of great finds for both men and women. These were all included in this year’s men’s and women’s gift guides, but I’m posting them here in their own post in case they were missed in the shuffle and you didn’t see them them the first time around.

I have those measuring spoons. My only recommendation would be to make sure the disposal doesn’t eat one, that was a big oops…

Please can you scrap the Billy Jealousy as a recommendation?
The exfoliants are small plastic beads that are essentially released into the environment when they wash down the drain. Plastics take centuries to degrade in the environment and even then, scientists are not sure they really have degraded, only broken into smaller bits of plastics. Where macroplastics are threats to larger organisms like fish, birds, turtles, etc, that are higher in the food web, microplastics threaten organisms much lower and probably more vital to the food web, such as plankton.
If you like the effects of the microbeads, try something natural like a product containing jojoba beads. Jojoba beads degrade quickly and naturally. A friend of mine makes a scrub called Nature Girl that despite its name has been well loved by men as well: http://tomboyskincare.com/face/
