Healthy holiday stocking stuffer ideas


(NC) Need a few gifts that are small enough to fit inside a stocking? Instead of filling stockings with unnecessary trinkets or boring socks that will end up in the back of a drawer, aim for gifts that are fun, delicious and encourage healthy living. These gift ideas may even spark an early start for new year’s resolutions.

Stress relief. Essential oils are great for relaxing, and who doesn’t need more stress relief during the holidays? Choose organic blend sets of essential oils like cinnamon, evergreen, peppermint or citrus that capture the essence of the season in a tiny bottle.

Clean routine. Help friends and family achieve their healthy lifestyle goals with clean-living stocking stuffers. Try products with naturally derived ingredients like lip scrubs, hand soaps, shampoos or even toothpaste. Look for products like Tom’s of Maine Luminous White toothpaste – a vegan formula comprised of mineral- and plant-derived ingredients that is also gluten, paraben and cruelty-free, to help make friends smile this season.

Sweet treats. Try adding sweet treats like power balls, which are a combination of dried fruit or dark chocolate. Pair them with loose-leaf herbal tea or fair-trade coffee for a cozy gift. Locally sourced jam, honey or spreads are also great options. Not only are they sweet, but they will help support local businesses.
