The twelve days of Christmas are upon us. And instead of singing about turtledoves and French hens, we’ve compiled a list of twelve gifts, consumers actually want. These stocking stuffers are small gifts guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit!!Bear-y good!Sugarfina, the global purveyor of high quality confectionaries, has taken their gummy bear collection to new heights. In time for the holiday season, Sugarfina has released a limited edition of 24K Gold Champagne bears. While Sugarfina has a standard collection of champagne and rosé-infused gummies, the 24K gold bears are in a league of their own. Made with Dom Pérignon, each brut and rosé bear is hand-gilded in edible 24K gold, making for a snack that looks as good as it tastes.O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree, how lovely are thy branches

Deck the halls and stock the bar. Pickering’s Gin has created Christmas Baubles that will adult-ify any home for the holiday. Sold in sets of six, each plastic ornament contains 50ml of Pickering’s gin, enough to brighten your holiday. Simply unscrew the cap of the bauble and drink the shot, or pour the gin into your holiday beverage. Afterward, screw the cap back on, and rehang the ornament on the tree. They are reusable, so you can refill them with your booze of choice. Thank you Pickering’s for helping keep the party going!!

After trying just one, you will attest that La Maison du Macaron lives up to their promise of taste, elegance, flavor, and comfort.Silent Night

Let’s be honest, the holiday season can leave you tuckered out. From schlepping from store to store to get the perfect gifts for your loved one or from hopping from party to party with all of your friends, our bodies get worn down. When the holidays are over, most of us just want good, sound, peaceful sleep. Lectrofan has developed a device to help us get the rest that our body needs. The Lectrofan is a sound machine that redefines the science of sleep. By making advances in adaptive audio and ambient noise analysis, Lectrofan has created a noise-neutralizing device that clears the way to blissful slumber. Eat, Drink, and Be Merry

Christmas can be one of the most social times of the year. A number of us host holiday parties to celebrate with our friends, and one of the biggest downsides of hosting is the post-party cleanup. Edie Parker has created confetti coasters to help (partially) alleviate mess. Made of acrylic, these coasters add festive décor to your party while preventing rings on your tables.A Little Slice of Heaven on Earth

For some, Christmas is a time for travel and relaxation. There are those of us who actively try to avoid the cold and snow during the holidays and head to a warm climate. If you can’t escape to the tropics, you can bring the tropics to you. Coqui Coqui has a collection of candles that takes your nose on a tour of the Yucatan. Coco Coco is inspired by the palm trees scattered along Tulum’s white sand beaches; the lime and mint Menli fragrance reflects the lush gardens of Coba; and the scent of Rosas Secas reflects the town of Valladolid. Alongside 10 more scents, you can have the olfactory experience of your life via also the company’s linen sprays, massage oils, and hand soaps. With Coqui Coqui, you may not need that roundtrip ticket from Aeroméxico.
I Want To Get Away

Sometimes we need a little motivation to make major plans. If you’ve been thinking about planning a trip to Paris, this petite handbag may give you the extra push that you need.

Holiday sparkle doesn’t have to be limited to your Christmas tree. You can add sparkle and glitter to your nails with Lust Cosmetics nail polish.

The brand’s nail lacquers are “8 Free”colors inspired by seasonal and fashion trends with a feminine touch. And for this festive season, Lust Cosmetics has an exclusive holiday collection that comes in a five-color kit with such sassy names as ‘high fashion diva,’ ‘spicy in the city,’ and ‘pumpkin spice where?’. Though this five-color holiday collection is a little pricy at $125, it is definitely worth it. Remember, all collections are made in the US. So, you can be festive and socially correct at the same time!!If You Love Her, Put It In Writing

A few things separate this charger from its competition. First, it has the Android and iPhone cables attached, so you don’t need to carry the cords with you. Secondly, it has a USB port, so you can charge three devices at once. Thirdly, it has a built-in flashlight- a feature that is always good to have. So whether you’re charging your phone and tablet on the fly, or searching for your keys in the dark, Jackery Bolt has you covered. Cocoon Eye Shades
