Inexpensive Stocking Stuffers for Kids - Toms of Maine ToothpasteMy children may be adults now, but there were plenty of Christmases when we were faced with big empty stockings and even emptier wallets.  So we did what my parents did; we bought everyday items that the kids could use year-round. But we bought them fun ones.

As an example, my kids got decorative bandages at Christmas and plain ones the rest of the year. In their day it was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Disney. These days there are plenty of fun ones to choose from. These are the ones that make boo boos better.

Another healthy but fun stocking stuffer is some fabulous

. It’s fun for kids but it doesn’t have any of the nasty artificial colors, artificial flavors, and preservatives the others do. At only $3.99 a tube, it’s an inexpensive addition that’s made especially for ages 2 to 6 (although teens will love it too :)).  While you’re helping them see the importance of taking care of their teeth, add a Tom’s of Maine Naturally Clean Toothbrush. Why? These new toothbrushes are BPA free and the handles are colored with mineral-based pigments and they cost just $3.99 as well).

I’m happy to support Tom’s of Maine because they products that are environmentally responsible and they give back to the community.

Do I really give the kids gifts like these. Yep! They’re adults now and they still get healthy stocking stuffers. This year it’s organic goat’s milk soap, organic hand lotion and organic lip balm, but don’t tell them!

Enter to Win

Tom’s of Maine very sweetly sent me 2 tubes of Silly Strawberry Toothpaste and one Soft Tom’s of Main Toothbrush (the box is a little squished from the mail).  My kids and I are mint paste lovers, plus I’d like a child to get to try this out, so I’d like to give it to one of you. Plus I’ll add a $10 gift card of my own so that you have a little something to buy a few more stocking stuffers with. Because I’d like to get this to you before Christmas, we’ll make this a 7 day giveaway.
