Dear Santa,

If you are reading this, I’ve been EXTRA good this year.

I’ve stayed strong as two tiny twins turned into almost-adults.

I’ve worried enough for the entire population of a small island in the South Pacific and made it through.

I helped my husband recover.

I grew up and realized I sounded just like my mother.

I learned about math for moms.

I got healthy.

It has been a YEAR, Santa. And guess what? I’m still standing.

I’m still here.

I’m still showing up.

I just wanted you to take all that into consideration in case you hadn’t filled my stocking yet.

And in case you needed a little inspiration? I put together a list for you of $5 stocking stuffers on a budget.

Thanks for listening and tell the reindeer I said hello.

sincerely, me

PS Save some room in your tummy, I made the most AMAZING cookies for you this year.

Under $5 Stocking Stuffers (You Can Get Before Christmas Eve)

These erasers.

They look like macarons and smell like vanilla.

You can see the erasers here.

This set of fun socks.

It’s a bit over budget at $7.00, but I thought you could split the socks up and add a pair to each stocking.

You can see the socks here.

These gum drop scented wipes.

And the best part? They are under $1.

You can see the wipes here.

Look at these window crayons.

They come in a set of five and you can use them to draw on any glass surface.

According to the twins, reusable drinking straws are all that and a bag of chips.

This set even comes with a cleaner.

See the set of straws here.

Look at this adorable tea strainer.

It looks like a miniature teapot.

See the tea strainer here.

Look at this set of markers.

Each marker has two ends and they smell like silly scents.

You can see the marker set here.

I am all about a cozy pair of slippers.

I found these at Target for $5.00.

You can see the slippers here.

Look at this fun undereye mask from Ulta.

It’s a set to help reduce puffiness.

You can see the entire set here.

I also love:


Christmas is 10 days away, so I’d order as fast as you can to ensure delivery.

I tried to find places that would get it there by Christmas.

And feel free to pass this list along to Santa…

….just in case you’ve been good this year, too. 🙂

    The window crayons! That looks so fun! I'm all ready for Christmas, except for wrapping (don't hate me) but these are sure good ideas. Happy Monday!
