Stocking Stuffers: Thinking ‘Outside The Socks’


It’s a given that at some point during the last few Christmases, your daughter has woken up to find a few pairs of brightly colored and/or patterned socks taking up the majority of the room in her stocking. Although everyone enjoys a quality pair of fuzzy socks, they are an obvious indication that mom was struggling to figure out what put in the stockings this year.

So, to encourage moms to think ‘outside the socks’, the team at Pinkfluence has put together this list of stocking stuffers that will have teen girls, across the globe, feeling a bit more excited to reach inside their stockings on Christmas morning.

1. Urban Decay Naked Pallet from Sephora

A personal favorite of the Naked Palettes is Naked 2, which contains a balance of shadows that are shimmery and illuminating, along with matte and natural tones. The palette is the perfect size to stick in a stocking and is a gift that girls can use everyday without their makeup looking overdone. Urban Decay also has the original Naked Palette along with Naked Basics and Naked 3, which can all be found at Sephora.

2. Printed Portable Phone Charger from Urban Outfitters

If your daughter is often out-and-about, or checking her social media every 5 minutes, her phone battery probably dies pretty quickly. Stuffing her stocking with a portable phone charger will give her the power to charge her phone when she is on-the-go. [For the daughters who receive this gift, get ready to lay the “Sorry mom, my phone died and I couldn’t get a ride home until 2 am!” excuse to rest.] Now, there’s no reason for daughters to ever be in that situation!

3. Chocolate Cookbook from Anthropologie

If your daughter loves to bake, or loves chocolate, try giving her this chocolate cookbook from Anthropologie. 256 pages of chocolate recipes will definitely come in handy when making holiday treats, and will give her something to do when it’s cold outside.

4. Perfume Sampler from Sephora

If your daughter is in search of her signature scent, a perfume sampler is the perfect gift to put in her stocking. Don’t risk paying full price for a scent she may not like. Instead, give this stocking stuffer so she can try out different samples until she finds the one she loves.

5. iTunes Gift Card from Apple

For the music or movie lover in your life, an iTunes gift card in her stocking could be the perfect gift idea.

6. Essie Holiday Polish Kit from Essie

If your daughter is a girly girl who loves a great nail polish, try stuffing her stocking with the Essie Holiday Polish Kit. The kit has 5 shades that range from subtle to striking, and are the perfect colors for the winter season.

7. Midnight Sky Scented Candle from Victoria Secret

A great smelling candle will always make a wonderful gift. The midnight sky candle from Victoria Secret smells divine and will fill up the room with a warm and inviting scent!

8. Phone Case from Target

For a daughter who is often on-the-go, putting a fashionable phone case in her stocking isn’t a bad idea. Pick out a protective case with a cute design and save your daughter from cracked screens (and save yourself from having to buy her a new phone every month!).

9. Macaron Cafe from Macaron Cafe

Every stocking should hold at least one sweet treat. Order your daughter a box of macarons so she has something sweet to look forward to after Christmas dinner.

10. Lululemon Headband from lululemon athletica

If your daughter is a victim of flyaway hairs, put a lululemon Fly Away Tamer Headband in her stocking this year. This headband works as a cute hair accessory and will keep all her fly aways in check while she’s busy getting fit.

Happy shopping! And happy holidays!
