Giving gifts is one of my absolute favorite things to do. If money wasn’t an issue, I’d be one of those people dropping gifts in the mail for everyone I know and hand-delivering packages all over town. I know a lot of people think the phrase “better to give than receive” is trite, but I really feel that way. Choosing items I think friends and family will love and appreciate is important to me, and I always keep my eyes open for the perfect gift.
My favorite things to pick out are stocking stuffers. When I was a kid, our stockings were mostly stuffed (and I mean stuffed) with chocolate bells and peanut butter cups, and sometimes I’d get another stocking at my grandparents’ house with an orange and one of those Lifesavers books. I actually don’t like Lifesavers, but there’s something about those holiday books that have earned a special place in my heart.
Stocking stuffers are great because you can cover a wide range of interests in one tidy package, from book lover to home cook to Lego-obsessed kindergartner. I always like to stick some special chocolates in my husband’s stocking, and my older son gets a kick out of giving everyone underwear. Sure, underwear isn’t exciting, but it’s more the fun of unwrapping something and knowing you’re loved.
Everyone could use a little extra love this holiday. So I’m giving away two mystery gift boxes! They’re packed with an assortment of goodies for you to enjoy yourself, or re-gift to someone else who needs some cheer.
To Win Mystery Box A, leave a comment on this post and share what you’d really want for a gift this year.

One winner will be drawn from each pool, but you can’t win both boxes, sorry! Open to all residents of US and Canada. This giveaway isn’t sponsored – it’s just brought to you by me! Winners will be drawn on Sunday, December 8 so I can get the boxes in the mail to you in time for Christmas.
