Stocking Stuffers ~ For Girls

I can hardly believe that it is that time already ~ but I must admit, I am way more excited than I have ever been for the holidays.  This year both my little girls will be old enough to really experience the magic of Christmas and I can't wait to see it through their eyes!  I started early with my shopping this year as I have made the choice to try and support local and/or handmade as much as I possibly can this holiday season ~ that being said you need to have your ducks in a row early as custom and handmade take a bit more time.  I already have purchased quite a bit and in my own personal Etsy shop I am seeing orders for the holidays start to come in.  Every year I have a difficult time shopping for stocking stuffers for everyone in the family and usually end up sticking to the standards of candy, coloring books, toothbrushes, stickers, etc... but this year I want to make each stocking a bit more special and am filling them with handmade treats from many artisans.  Below is my list for little girls ~ many of the items are what I have already ordered for my girls and a few are ones that I can't get as their stockings are already full!  but there is always next year :)

And here is my list!

Custom Headbands

This headband is a custom creation made by Molly over at MaxineandNormaJean I have two custom headbands ordered for my girls in the colors of the rainbow and I know my girls are going to adore them!

Handmade Soaps

These cupcakes look (and smell) good enough to eat!  I bought a 3-pack of these sherbet scented soap confections  from burntmill and I can't wait till my girlies see these!


Cute is the first word that comes to mind with these heart shaped cookie rings!  I purchased two of these from ScrumptiousDoodle.

Now for some edibles!  I absolutely will be visiting a local shop to purchase some chocolates for our stocking this year.  We love the Hot Chocolate Sparrow located in Orleans, Ma.  This Cape Cod gem is open year round and not only has amazing coffees but has a ginormous (is that even a word?) chocolate bar! 
Here is a picture of our youngest about to eat her first caramel apple this fall at the Sparrow!

I was browsing on Pintrest today and came across an amazing blog by Bakerella Amongst some amazing cupcakes, cakepops, and desserts were these amazing handmade gumdrops.  I will be making these, but in my excitement I already told my girls about them so they will not make it into our stockings!
Have you ever seen anything so pretty!?!?

As for other stuffers, I do have to add in some standards that I always had in my stocking, like coloring books and crayons.   Since my girls love it I will also probably add in a nailpolish for each of them too ~ maybe some by Piggy Paint. 

And last but certainly not least here are my own stocking stuffers!  A little extra glitter during the holidays never hurts!

A pinch of pixie dust...
