Check out the fragrance sets by Bath and Body Works. In store and online they often have a buy one get one free option so they are a great way to stock up for several of the women on your list (or grab some for yourself!) — click here!

These beautiful wraps from the online site TenFingers4Paws are made from organic hand dyed raw silk and come with six charms and two pave balls. Each is 38 inches long, and is available with either gold-filled or sterling charms. They can be worn as a bracelet, necklace or as a hair accessory. They come in a variety of colors and makes a super cute gift for your pregnant friend–get the pink if she’s expecting a girl or the blue if she’s expecting a boy! — click here!
It’s always fun to go hog wild in the dollar bins at Target, check out the sale items at Pier One or get nuts at Bed, Bath and Beyond. In fact here are some other items you can either use to take up room in the stocking or use as your main gift:

To Wrap it All Up:
First up, I love the idea of a theme based on the recipient’s interest. For example, if you have a rock’n’roll lover, check out the wrapping paper from Wolfgang’s Vault that features rock inspired images that they are sure to enjoy and can display once their gift is open. 6 sheets for $12 — click here!
Or, if you have a kitchen lover, consider an idea from TheNest.com that recommends using a dish towel to wrap with so that they get a wonderful gift and wrapping they can use, too! Ikea currently has a great selection at 2 towels for $6 — click here.
Reusable bags are another fantastic option, like the VZWraps collection – a practical, elegant, affordable, and eco-friendly. Drop your gift in, tie the bag closed, and your wrapping is done! Reuse the bags for years — the attached ribbons won’t get lost. Prices range from $3 – $14 — click here!
Have the kids make their own! Grab a paper roll from Ikea, spread it across your dining table and then let the kids decorate it. Either let them use their imagination with crayons, paint, glitter, etc. or give them a set of holiday inspired stamps. This option is one of my favorites because whoever receives the gift also gets artwork, but it also occupies the kids as you tend to last minute holiday tasks. $4.99 a roll from Ikea — click here!
Similarly, while you still have the art supplies out, I love using Avery shipping tags to tie on as gift tags. Either have the kids decorate them or add seasonal inspired stickers for a little pizazz. And the best part? Only $5 for 100! Click here!
