Mamatoga's 12 Days of {local} Gift Guides: Stocking Stuffer Edition

  stockingsstuffers11 comicsstuffers10stuffers12grownupsadultsstuffers16I fell in love with this little banner kit that lets you make banners for any occasion. We bought one of these last week to make Levy a good luck banner for the Nutcracker, find them at Northshire Bookstore.

Comic Depot has recently moved from Wilton Mall to Broadway in Saratoga Springs, and they have a TON of amazingly priced stocking stuffers there for both girls and boys. I picked up a few comics for Finn, I love the retro feel of the comics, and the fact that he gets so excited about reading.

Handerpants are, well, underpants for your hands. They are silly fun, exactly what kids want to find in their stocking. Pair them with this just adorable Cubebot (which comes in a bunch of vibrant colors) and you've got stuff guaranteed to make any kid smile. Find them both at Northshire Bookstore.

How cute will the kids look with this holiday themed Elf mask from Hold On To Your Hats on Christmas morning? She has so many cute ones to choose from, click here to visit her online shop.

We all know how snow gear can go missing, but thanks to Name Bubbles I set a new record last year and didn't lose ONE SINGLE GLOVE OR HAT. Pretty remarkable (I considered calling the Guinness Book of World Records). Besides being super cute, these durable labels will save you money in the long run in having to replace lost items. Snap up their Winter Pack of labels, on sale here now.

As adults, we all have those OMG and WTF moments, don't we? Now you can inject a tiny bit of humor into those sometimes frustrating moments with these hilarious post it notes from Northshire Bookstore. They ALMOST make having to run to Target for diapers less of a chore.

I've had these Smathers & Branson 12866 keyfobs on a wishlist before and I am putting them on again because, hello? Smathers & Branson + Saratoga Springs = MUST HAVE NOW. Get one to stuff in that preppy stocking at Next Summer.

Every girl needs a little sparkle in her life, and these earrings from Piper Boutique also deliver on another love of my life, tortoiseshell. I am a sucker for pretty much anything tortoiseshell, and the price point on these little darlings make them so easy to give as a sweet stocking surprise. Find them at Piper Boutique.

First I fell in love with the packaging, and then I fell in love with the scent. I would be thrilled to find any of the Aroma Bird products in my stocking Christmas morning, find a whole selection to choose from at Healthy Living Market and Cafe and online here.

I hope you will have an easier time choosing between these two gorgeous soft clutches from Silverwood Home and Gallery. There is nothing more chic than some holiday tartan, and this little pop of the Christmas classic lets you bring it along to all of the holiday get togethers. It's a staple that you will pull out year after year to add a touch of holiday charm to your season. (p.s. I went with the bottom one but still REALLY want the top one too)
