5 Holiday Stocking Stuffer Ideas Under $25
I’m usually not a fan of candles but these Mine Design ones are different. Personalize the eco-friendly candle creations with pencil or chalk.
There are three clean-burning soy-based wax blends:
• Pencil a simple message on the “Noted” candle. The modern white-lined notebook-style candle comes in a ceramic vessel with a blonde wood-branded pencil to write notes that can be wiped clean and reused. Choose form six delicious fragrances, each for $26.
• The beautifully curated trio of “Triptych” candles come in a set of scents that can burn on their own or together to create blends that waft like rustic firesides, luscious dark florals or crisp winters nights. Available for $52.
• Ignite creativity with the “Chalkboard” candle and write special messages, then erase and draw a masterpiece. Comes with chalk, the candles are available in classic black for the perfect personalized gift. Available for $24.00
I think the chalk candle is the perfect gift for a teacher!
Mine Design is designed to ensure low-environment impact. Candles are blended and poured in an intimate batch- by-batch process and the perfume-grade custom fragrances are never tested on animals. Recyclable packaging is customized per order so there is no over-printing and no-waste.

Brickstix was created by Greyson Maclean when he was 9 (he’s now 15). At the time, he wanted to bring his LEGO® and MEGA BLOKS® to come to life, but found that normal stickers left his bricks with a messy residue.Greyson then invented BrickStix, reusable decals that utilize static cling to adhere to all his favorite creations.
There are fun designs like Pets, Space and Transportation. Remember, the stickers remove so no more icky paper left on the Legos.
