I think I say this every year, but this year I’m in awe…I cannot believe it’s time to write this post….and this year I’m feeling like it’s time to take it back to our roots….focusing on quality gifts that are clutter free, unique, and just down right awesome. Here’s what I’m crushing on this holiday season.
Please note I received samples of some of these goodies to be able to write these reviews. My opinions are my own and these items are what I’m loving for my friends and family this holiday season.
- Glee Gum is an all natural alternative to gums made with artificial sweeteners. It’s made sustainably with all natural flavors and it tastes amazing! It is vegetarian, additive free, lactose free, dairy free, wheat free, gluten free, casein free, egg free, yeast free, nut free, and peanut free. (Soy is present in the facility). Glee is the first gum to be Non-GMO Project Verified. This is a great tasting alternative to other gums that are full of chemicals and artificial ingredients. Feel good about what you’re chewing. Good health comes down to even the smallest decisions and this is an easy change to make. You’ll be thrilled you did. They have LOTS of flavors, sizes and even a sugar free option! They even have gifts for kids! (Check out their DIY Candy Kits). Glee is great for everything from stocking stuffers to gifts for those tough to shop for co-workers. Stock up for yourself while you’re at it.

2. Chapsticks are a classic stocking stuffer. They are not only fun and now holiday themed, they are useful and consumable! I’m never without a tube of Chap-Stick. I seriously have one in every pocket, on my desk, in my bag, and everywhere in between. I am thrilled to share with you that they have three seasonal flavors this year; Pumpkin Pie, Sugar Cookie, and Candy Cane. They are perfect to bring a little celebration to every day and keep your lips soft and smooth. Yes, these are amazing little ways to treat yourself, but they also make great stocking stuffers, gifts for teachers, friends and kids.
3. Knock Knock is another one of our favorites at The Joyful Organizer. Year after year they don’t disappoint. This year is no exception. Here’s a few of my selects: The Gummy Bear book: This little stocking stuffer is as sweet as it is hilarious. Sure to make you laugh out loud this is a winner for everyone on the list from kids to adults. I’m going to get a few. These will also make unexpected hostess gifts. What I Love About Our Family Fill In The Love Journal: These little journals are some of the best gifts I’ve given over the years. This one is no exception. It takes very little time to fill them out and the result is a beautiful, keepsake worthy gift. Affirmators: These cards are inspirational, but not cheesy. They’re cute, but not cutesy. They’re perfect for gifting, but not preachy. They’re really just perfect all the way around. Grab yourself a set to keep on your desk while you’re at it. This pen is my spirit animal. I mean what working mom doesn’t go through the I need a drink/I need a coffee debate every day? I’m keeping this little gem for me.
4. While we’re going to do another gift guide just for the kiddies, I had to share one of my favorites. National Geographic’s Hey Baby, is a beautiful collection of images assembled with the love and beauty you expect from National Geographic. However, it caters to the little ones in your life. This is a book that all ages will love and you will pull off the shelf over and over again. The book will become a keepsake!
