You’ve got all your big presents purchased, wrapped, and under the tree. You look over at your mantle — oh, who are we kidding, we don’t have mantles in base housing! So, you look over at your wall and see the stockings hanging there, empty and lifeless. Stocking stuffers are usually the last-minute, rush purchases we make standing in the bag shelves of Target wondering why a tube of chapstick suddenly costs $2.36. Daily Mom Military has done the scouring for you and found some stocking stuffer gifts that everyone will love — stocking stuffer gifts that aren’t just ho-hum chapstick and socks.
1. Stocking Stuffer Gifts — Sugar and Shine Holiday Gift Set from Sara Happ
Nothing takes a beating in the cold, blustery winter air like your lips. Stuff a stocking with the Sugar and Shine Holiday Gift Set from Sara Happ (even if it’s your own stocking) to give the gift of smooth, moisturized lips.
The Sugar and Shine Holiday Gift Set comes with two delicious seasonal scrubs — hot cocoa and pink marshmallow. Applying a small amount in a circular motion to your lips will exfoliate the dry, flaky skin that seems to appear this time of year.
Once you’ve exfoliated, it’s time to seal that moisture back into your lips. The Sugar and Shine trio rounds out with the ultra-hydrating One Luxe Whipped Vanilla Lip Gloss. This isn’t your mama’s chapstick. With just the right balance of vanilla flavor, this gloss will keep your lips hydrated and looking and feeling great all winter.
Because this gift set comes from Sara Happ, you can be sure you are getting the stamp of the Lip Expert’s approval. The scrubs are gentle enough to use every day (or just as needed for those of you celebrating the holidays in humidity and flip-flops). Sara Happ products are never tested on animals; they are paraben- and gluten-free and made proudly in the U.S.A.
The Sugar and Shine Holiday Gift Set comes neatly packaged, complete with a bow, so as soon as you get your hands on it, you can slide it right into your (err, we mean, someone’s) stocking with no extra effort needed.

7. Stocking Stuffer Gifts — Moroccan Magic Lip Balm
It’s rare that women talk about their lip balm. After all, we have much more pressing things to worry about, like keeping the kids fed while our spouses are deployed. But chapped lips can push a woman over the edge on a bad day. So if you’re looking for a surprisingly awesome stocking stuffer that solves a problem and makes her feel pampered, you’ll want to check out Moroccan Magic Lip Balm. It’s a definite win, and 100 percent worth it.
Moroccan Magic Lip Balms are made with argon oil, essential oils, and all organic ingredients. This isn’t a tired old chapstick you have to reapply every 20 minutes to keep your lips from cracking. This lip balm actually soaks into your skin and restores it while giving you the benefits of those essential oils at the same time. Moroccan Magic Lip Balm flavors include: peppermint eucalyptus, rose, coconut almond, lemon thyme, and lavender vanilla. They come in packs of three or in variety packs. So, you know what that means — one for you, one for us, one for you, one for us…you get it.
