Practical Items Make Great Stocking Stuffers!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Have you noticed that when you get older, you get excited with practical items in your Christmas stocking? Yeah...I've been at that point for a few years now. Last year I got excited over ink pens. Yep, ink pens, but they were cool and practical and I am happy to have them still. :) Practical items have their place in everyone's lives, so if you're looking for some ideas that meet that match, I've got 'em for you here today.

Band-Aids!! The cuter the better for me and for the kids (yep, I'll wear a kids' Band-Aid any day of the week). Kids' Band-Aids have to be high quality though so they don't fall off. While a fun bandage can make things better, if it falls off fast, things are going to go downhill fast from there. ;)
New! Make healing fun and entertaining with BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages featuring Star Wars, BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages featuring Peanuts and BAND-AID®Brand Adhesive Bandages featuring Inside Out. Kids and adults alike can now cover up cuts and scrapes with designs featuring their favorite characters! SRP $2.49

Toiletry items that I might not necessarily use myself, but I definitely need to have on hand when the grandbaby is around are also most definitely welcome stocking stuffers! They're also nifty little packs to take along with you if you have a little one of your own, when you're out and about doing your holiday visiting.

JOHNSON’S® baby take along pack is perfect for holiday travel. The pack includes JOHNSON’S® baby shampoo, JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE® wash, JOHNSON’S® baby lotion, JOHNSON'S® baby powder pure cornstarch with aloe vera & vitamin e, and DESITIN® rapid relief cream. SRP $3.47

Keep JOHNSON’S® hand & face wipes on-hand to rid of dirt and germs before any holiday event. SRP $2.49

Neosporin in a stocking would make me giddy. This is something that if you don't have it in the house you absolutely miss it. Having a back-up that arrived via a Santa elf wouldn't hurt my feelings at all.

And the Compeed Blister Cushions are new to me, but definitely a product I can see myself appreciating. A blister is an annoyance that can definitely slow you down, and who needs that? These look like they would help.

New! Now fashionista’s can hop from one holiday party to another with the newest solution for relieving blister pain instantly. COMPEED® Blister Cushions use hydrocolloid technology and fit like a second skin, staying on all day long. Compact enough to fit in any holiday clutch. SRP $8.99, only at Walgreens.


So, there is a list of items that I think are practical but would still be excellent stocking stuffers.
How about you? Do you like practical items in your Christmas stocking too?
