What Mommy Wants in Her Stocking

After you’ve shopped till you dropped, wrapped all the gifts and put out Santa’s cookies, you can’t help but wonder what you may see under the tree for yourself. While the picture-perfect morning would include the kids all around the tree in matching pajamas with huge grins on their faces, all the while playing with their new toys, what about you, Mom? Shopping for your own gifts can have its perks since you’ll know exactly what’s tucked under the tree or stuffed in your stocking, but sometimes, it’s nice to be completely surprised with the spontaneity of gifts. So, Santa, if you are reading, take note!


Here is what Mommy wants in her stocking ::

Something Yummy

More than likely, Mom likes chocolate. So head to a fancy chocolate store and get a few delicious pieces. Think quality over quantity here. 

Bathtime Bliss

Ahh, what’s better than a relaxing quiet bath? Not much. A unanimous response from our team was bath bombs. You can’t go wrong here, Santa.

About Face

Moms know they need to replace their makeup tools but don’t always follow the rules. If Santa could throw in a Beauty Blender to replace our worn out one, that would be fabulous.

Bling Bling

As a child, my stocking always had new earrings, and it was something I always looked forward to each year. Now as a mom, I still do! Maybe a pair of those new Mardi Gras earrings from Rebl Creative or Satazi would be fitting? Kings Day is right around the corner, after all!

Gift Cards that BLOW us away

Sometimes a good blow out is the perfect final touch for her look before date night or a special event. However, as moms, we don’t always go the extra mile when it comes to ourselves. This is the type of gift card that would be much appreciated in our stocking.

Pampered Perfection

Our spa days are now replaced with play dates, so moms tend to do more pampering at home. What’s on our wish list? Face masks, nail polish, and lotions / creams.

So Santa Baby, if you are reading, I hope you take note and throw a few extra of these suggestions in your sleigh just for us moms. Many thanks!
