Amping Up My Stocking Stuffing Game

Stocking stuffersI don’t know about you, but I love stuffing my family’s Christmas stockings with an assortment of fun candy and silly gifts. This year I decided to amp up my stocking stuffer “stuffing” by including some everyday essentials I know they can actually use and need.

My husband spends so much time out in the field and I began to think about some products he could benefit from while away from home. When he comes home from work he always greets me with a kiss and I know after spending some time out in the field he may not have the freshest breath. So, this year I’m including some new LISTERINE® READY! TABS™ so he can always be “kiss ready”! He also uses camouflage paint on his face during some of his field exercises and normally just waits until he can take a shower to scrub it off. That’s why this year I’ll be including some Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes in his stocking. He can get all that grime off his face even if he’s days away from a hot shower. Then, I kept thinking about his dry, callused hands and decided to include some Aveeno® Moisturizing Lotion so that he can give his hands a little TLC.

The best part about finding everyday essential items as stocking stuffers is that I was able to find all these wonderful products at my local Commissary and Exchange, which means I was able to save money! This holiday season amp up your stocking stuffing game by including some items you know your loved ones need and will use.
