Bath and Body Works Sugared Snickerdoodle Single Wick Candle – $14.50
How does Bath and Body Works constantly create candle scents that we can’t live without? We all do it. We walk into the store with the best intentions. It is just for that one little stocking stuffer. We aren’t going to go crazy and buy everything. Just one little candle. Then BOOM. We smell a candle and think that’s the one! Then the next one is also the one. How can we pick? We buy a tableful. One candle for everyone and one of each scent for ourselves. Luckily, this candle is an online exclusive, but Sugared Snickerdoodle has yummy notes of warm spices, creamy vanilla musk and sugared musk. Just pick up an extra in case. You are welcome.

Coach Sculpted Signature Leather Tech Gloves in Wine – $115.00
A pair of beautiful leather gloves are a must-have for the winter and also a great idea for stocking stuffers. What makes them special is the colour.
