The Perfect Stocking Stuffers for Him & Her

By Ally Onyett, Dec 17


Let's face it. The stocking isn't usually the main gift, but it's still important to get it right. So after searching CORE for the perfect tiny trinkets and treats, here's a list of a few favourites that  will delight your sweetie on Christmas morning. 

 

For Her:

Marc Jacobs Nail Polish ($22 at Sephora)

This little bottle of nail polish might just be a girl's new best friend. It delivers a wet glittery look that is vivid and chip resistant and is available in a wide range of shades all inspired by designer Marc Jacob’s favourite movies.

Rodial Lip Balm ($24 at Shoppers Drug Mart)

New to the cosmetic scene in Canada, this UK brand is taking us by storm with everything from tummy tuck and bust enhancing creams to sumptuous lip balm and serums. For a little stocking stuffer check out this rich balm, formulated to hydrate and plump dry lips all winter long.

Body Butter ($14 at Rocky Mountain Soap)

This little body butter bar is perfect for a girl on the go. It’s mess free and perfect for those dry patches on elbows, knees and heels. A limited edition Vanilla and Candy Cane scented butter is a festive addition to any stocking.

Frosted Cranberry Body Wash ($9 at The Body Shop)

She’ll enjoy the scents of the season all winter long with this sweet juicy shower gel bursting with mouth-watering frosted cranberry. It actually contains top note cranberry seed oil from Canada to nourish and moisturize the skin as she lathers up.

Face Mask ($8 at Sephora)

Perfect for a hard working girl, this energizing face mask will help her unwind over the holidays and protect her skin with antioxidant rich natural pomegranate extract.

Thick Soft Socks ($14.95 at H&M)

Ideal for cold toes, these cozy thick socks are perfect for relaxing après ski by the fire place.

Christmas Crackers ($45 for 3 at Eveline Charles)

These Christmas crackers are not your typical dollar store, paper-crown-filled crackers. Inside each one is a nail polish, lipstick, eyeliner, eye shadow and an inspiring quote for women like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Eveline Charles herself. 

 

Himalayan Pink Salted Chocolates (at Purdy’s, price based on quantity)

Available in milk chocolate and dark, with caramel or peanut butter filings, these decadent sweet and salty treats are sure to satisfy her sweet tooth.

The Hangover Patch ($5.95 at Land & Sea)

This patch not only makes a great stocking stuffer, it’s a life saver for any lightweight the day after the party. All she has to do is pop on the patch before she heads out and she'll wake up hangover free.

 

For Him

Map of the World ($21.95 Indigo)

For the world traveller, this handy little map will help him keep track of where's been and where he wants to go. He can easily record all of the places he’s seen by scratching off countries as he goes, revealing a world of colourful facts and geographical detail. It even has a dedicated space for “before” and “after” photos.

iTunes Gift Card (Shoppers Drug Mart)

Let him get his jam on over the holidays with an iTunes gift card to buy the latest hit music, apps, movies and more.

 

Bluetooth Speaker ($19.99 at HMV)

To go with that iTunes card, pick up a portable BlueTooth Speaker. This XMINI II Capsule will blast his favourite tunes in whatever room he’s in, and will fit perfectly in the toe of his stocking.

Dress Socks ($25 at Harry Rosen)

For the guy who likes to dress up, these eye-catching Italian Bugatchi striped dress socks are just a small gift to help him liven up his business wardrobe and rock his style. They are also exceptionally comfortable and finished with hand-linked seams.

Boxers ($30 at Heroes)

These MyPakage boxers are said to be the most comfortable underwear a guy can sport. The pouch inside the boxers provides support so there’s no more shifting, or adjusting, and the fabric reduces sweat and eliminates chaffing. They're available in nearly every colour and pattern.

 

Jack Black All Over Wash ($10.50 at Holt Renfrew)

This product is meant for the low maintenance guy. It's three products in one and gentle enough for the face, hair and body, keeping all three looking their best.

Jack Black Lip Balm ($8.50 at Holt Renfrew)

This oh-so-manly lip balm is available in a gift set of three, or comes individually to keep your man’s lips soft and moisturized through the cold dry winter, and he'll feel good knowing this product is made specifically for men.

Caramel and Marshmallow Bar ($9.75 for 3 at Purdy’s)

A favourite treat during the holidays, this marshmallow bar is packed with caramel sweetness and wrapped in decadent milk chocolate. Purchase them in a package of three for something sweet that'll last him right through the holidays.
