For the moisturizer obsessed, dry hand sufferer, new mother, nurse
We know dry skin is a pain in the butt!
Hydration without fragrance? Nourish Organic's Unscented Body Butter is super nourishing and light with whipped shea butter, coconut and olive oils and Vitamin E. For the person always on the go, Grove Apotheca's Coconut Cream Crayon is an easy way to moisturize hands and other small areas without the wet feel of a lotion or cream.
Another great stocking stuffer idea...Elemental Herbs All Good Goop multi- purpose healing salve. With all natural ingredients and botanical extracts (no synthetic chemicals or preservatives), this product is def amongst our stocking stuffer gifts this year.
Facial Oil lovers, you'll receive many thanks if you stuff a stocking with this amazing plant based antioxidant facial oil. With 27 beneficial active ingredients, this makes a wonderful moisturizer as well as anti-aging serum.
For Aromatherapy afficionados:
A little roll of Blissoma's Stress Relief Serum is meant to calm the mind and reduce muscle tension through the senses. A blend of lemon balm, chamomile and ginger essential oil is more than 95% organic in ingredients and 100% natural. A must have for any (of us) city dwellers.
Or how about a harmoniously scented soy candle to throw in the stocking. Blissoma also offers their 100% botanical and vegan aromatherapy candles, perfect for mediation or reading.
This lovely aromatic with jojoba oil and essential oils of lime, grapefruit, sandalwood and vanilla has the mantra "Love yourself like you love others."
For lip balm fanatics:
We're presently salivating over Between You & The Moon's Bumble Balm. It's the perfect lip moisturizer with shea butter and cocoa butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil and Evening Primrose Oil. No petroleum chemicals, perfumes or colorants in this lip pucker product.
Another excellent lip lovers heavenly delight is Grove Apotheca's Wild Honey Lip Butter. The butter and oil blend is wonderfully creamy, your lips just can't get enough; you will have to order more than one as this one does not disappoint!
If your giftee prefers lip hydration minus the beeswax, toss into their stocking a lip butter from 100 percent pure. It's made with shea and cocoa butters and pigmented with cranberry, pomegranate, strawberry and cherry.
Lip balm for the vegan recipient? We totally love Hurraw Lip balms. They come in a variety of flavors and are made using raw, organic ingredients..best part, smooth, not sticky, not too glossy, long lasting, made in the USA and BPA free.
one of our personal favorites from way back when for lovely, soft kissables is from Dr. Hauschka. The Lip Care Stick does an amaaaaaaazing job of hydrating lips. A seriously good lip product, very nice for underneath lip colors or simply on its own. Another where buying one just isn't enough.
For the "set" aholic
Andalou Naturals has the perfect set to help delicate sensitive skin. Their 1000 Roses Get Started Kit contain Alpine Rose Stem Cells and 1000 Roses Complex to support a healthy complexion as well as soften and soothe.

Equal to the spa mask brushes are these natural plant cellulose facial sponges. Perfect for removing dirt, oil, make-up or cleansing in your face mask ritual.
For the chemically sensitive
Chemical allergy sufferers do their best to steer clear of chemical ingredients. We especially heart our multiversatile soap nuts or liquid castile soap as stocking stuffers. Many of the above gift ideas are also good for those suffering from chemical allergies. Just be sure to check the ingredients label to ensure there aren't any synthetic chemicals or specific ingredients your giftee is sensitive to.
