The Perfect Stocking Stuffers for her

I have always enjoyed giving gifts, rather than receiving them. There is just something about watching your friend or family member’s expression that never gets old. To this day, I still make a checklist of things I see while shopping that I know my friends would love, and struggle with funding my gift giving obsession (lol). I can still remember how one Christmas when I was eight my grandparents gave me $50 for my present and on Christmas day I went to a fancy candy boutique and bought $60 worth of candy for my friends. My dad’s face was priceless when I had to grab him to pay the rest, since I was ten dollars short. And shortly after, I got a lesson from my parents, that although gift giving is great, spending $60 on candy probably isn’t the best idea.

Although, gift giving has always been easy for me, stockings stuffers have not. I want to give things that people will still love just as much as their main gift rather than a bouncy ball, or pingpong racket. So today I’ve rounded up 11 stocking stuffers and small gifts, for when you’ve got no idea what to get her.

  1. Journal- Every girl needs a journal, and you can never have too many. Whether it is for taking notes, writing to do lists or bible studies, this is perfect.
  2. Hair ties- I feel like I am always losing my hair ties and have to buy more. I love the no-crease elastics, since I can put up my hair without ruining the style. And my favorite thing about these ties is that they come in wrappers like candy.
  3. Tassel Earrings- A cute pair of statement earrings is something every girl needs, plus, these come in a bunch of colors!
  4. Roller ball perfume- Roller balls are great to keep in your purse and an awesome way to try new scents. This one has been raved about and is on Allure’s 2017 list.
  5. S’well tumbler- Pretty much everyone loves a good cup of hot coffee or tea, and having a cute tumbler that will keep your drink warm is a must! S’well bottles are one of the best in my opinion, not only for their cute designs, but for keeping your drink warm for hours as well.
  6. Shower gel- Scented shower gels are always a favorite among gifts and perfect for bubble baths and unwinding after a long day.
  7. Lip gloss- Lip glosses are perfect for any girly girl, and this Buxon one comes in a range of colors and has a plumping minty sensation.
  8. Pompom hat- Pompom hats are something every girl wants and needs. This one is super cute and only $15.
  9. Eye Mask-  This is perfect for any traveler and of course absolutely adorable!
  10. Candles- I always have a candle burning somewhere in my house in the winter, and there are so many different types out there that no two candles are alike!
  11. Face masks- Putting on a nourishing face mask at the end of long day, and curling up in bed to watch Netflix is something I love to do. And since my skin gets really dry in the winter, I’m always looking for products to restore my skin’s moisture.

  • Found the cutest black sweater and it's on sale! This morning I went to Church with a good friend and got brunch afterwards! I'm about to go take some blog photos and then hopefully do some meal prep for the week! I love meal prepping because it helps me have quick options to snack on and makes me more likely to eat in rather than be tempted to go out. Especially during Whole30 meal prep has been a life saver! What do you do on Sunday's to make your week easier? (Ps: remember you can now shop my Instagram on the blog!)
  • The cutest sweatshirt dress under $35!! Y'all today I finally finished (well almost) the new blog! After being tired of the way my blog looked I decided to give it a makeover! Now you can shop my Instagram including this dress! So go take a look, and tell me what y'all think!
  • Hands up for snow days!! Yesterday we got almost a foot of snow which is incredibly unusual for Raleigh! I've been curled up on the couch by our fireplace, watching Hulu and working on the blog! I need a good show to binge on Netflix or Hulu, what's your favorite? (Also the blog may or may not be getting a major facelift!)
  • I feel like I haven't gotten to introduce myself, I'm Sasha! I love Jesus and sharing the gospel. I really want to like reading but I don't unless I'm at the beach with a mojito, or reading my bible with a highlighter and pen. I love breakfast, and poached eggs are my go to at brunch! But my eyes are always bigger than my stomach and I probably change my order about five times because I'm so indecisive. I'm a perfectionist at heart, I try to do everything and I mean everything (high school, jewelry business, blog, youth group three times a week, and a job) until I'm exhausted. I love learning unless it's physics, then I'm just confused. But I love math and solving problems. I am constantly trying to prove myself to myself, and make it a game to see how much I can accomplish in a day. I am a creature of habit, I go to the same coffee shop at least three times a week and I've made friends with all the baristas lol. I'm an introverted extrovert and love talking (a lot)! I love traveling and dream of moving somewhere like London or New York. Oh and I'm a twin (it's so much fun)! Ps: this outfit is all linked in today's blog post, so go give it a read!
  • Finally got a pair of leopard loafers and I'm obsessed! They're so comfy and look amazing! Tomorrow we're supposed to get 3-5 inches of snow, it may not sound like much, but for NC that means school will be canceled for a few days! Super excited to curl up on the couch, watch KUWTK and drink some hot chocolate!😆 What are your favorite things to do on snow days?
  • Yesterday I did the first part of my driving for drivers ed, luckily he only had to use his brakes a couple of times🙈 Not sure how I feel about driving yet but I have another class later today. Do you guys like driving, or would you rather have your friend drive?
  • Happy Friday Eve! I'm so excited about the long weekend ahead! This week was my first full week back at school and it's been pretty hard adjusting back from having so much free time. But I'm also kinda loving it because I'm sort of in my element when I have a bunch of stuff to do, all about the #hustle lol! I wanted to share a few thoughts on our identity. So last week I applied to a style company for a space in their influencer community. And today I saw an email in my inbox and my stomach dropped to the floor. I had a hunch when I applied that I didn't have a very high chance to get in, but thought what's the worst thing that can happen, they say no and I move on and try again later down the road. But for some reason all afternoon there's been a weight on my chest and a voice in my head saying I'm not good enough! And holy moly, that's so far from the truth. You see our identity is in Jesus, who says we are enough! And at times it can be hard to remember when things you had such high hopes for fall through. I keep reminding myself of Genesis 1:27 and Isaiah 25:1. It's so easy to lose sight of what God has planned for your life by little moments that take away your attention from the big picture. Whatever challenge, rejection, or pain you're facing, Jesus is so much bigger than it and so is his plan for you! (Ps: this sweater is on major sale, linked on the blog)
  • Currently dreaming of being somewhere warm. I feel like once January roles around I'm done with winter and ready for spring dresses and cute sandals (anyone else?) But until then this fur vest is great to stay cozy in the winter weather! My favorite way to style it is, with a pair of jeans, riding boots, a white sweater and gold hoops!
  • I think I'm pretty late on the otk boot trend, but since I've got these I've been wearing them everywhere! These were the only shoes I wore on my trip to Paris and they were surprisingly comfortable for walking around Paris all day. I'm currently lusting over the Stuart Weitzman pair, but if you're not wanting to splurge these are the perfect option!
