Last Minute Stocking Stuffer / Teacher Gift Idea

We’ve all been there, right? You’re getting ready to leave the house for a holiday party and you realize you forgot to pick up a hostess gift. Or the piano teacher arrives the week before Christmas with a sweet gift for her favorite piano student (your child, of course!) and it totally slipped your mind to put her on your shopping list this year.

This happens to me more often than not, and I’m sure I’m not alone because I’ve had a lot of requests for last minute gift ideas for stockings, teachers, service workers, and Secret Santa or Pollyanna style gift exchanges.

Well, I’ve found the perfect thing — Burt’s Bees Holiday Gift Sets.

I’ve been a fan of Burt’s Bees products for years because of their commitment to using natural ingredients. My tween and teenage daughters usually find Burt’s Bees lipsticks or lip balm in their Christmas stockings, and I like to keep the hand salve in my purse.

I was recently introduced to Burt’s Bees gift sets, and I’m stocking up! These make the perfect last minute gifts for teachers, friends, or party hosts, and you can also feel good about giving the gift of natural beauty products during the holidays.

All gift sets are less than $15, beautifully packaged, and available at Walmart and

The Essential Holiday Gift Set that was sent to me includes 5 trial sizes of Burt’s Bees most popular products:

I love trial size products because they’re perfect for travel and keeping in my purse. It’s also a great way to try and discover new products.

I was super excited to see that they included their hand salve in this gift set. I don’t know about you, but this time of year my hands tend to get super dry and even cracked if I don’t keep them moisturized, and this hand salve is up to the task. Guys like it too because there is no strong, feminine scent.

It comes in a little tin that’s easy to keep inside your purse or desk drawer to apply throughout the day.

Burt’s Bees Holiday Gift Sets are the perfect under $15 gifts to keep on hand for those last minute gift-giving situations that tend to crop up this time of year. I hate scrambling for something at the last minute, and it’s nice to have a few things at home that are already packaged and read to go.

Also, here’s a little time-saving tip: keep a bunch of small gift bags on hand as well! Gift bags are a huge time saver, plus you don’t have to find the scissors or tape… are we the only house that seems to lose scissors and wrapping tape??? I think it’s with the missing silverware.

You can pick up gift bags at Walmart too, along with everything else you need to get ready for the holidays.

If you have a few of these Burt’s Bees Holiday Gift Sets and gift bags stockpiled in your pantry, you will be all set when you remember that you forgot to pick up a gift for the piano teacher or you get invited to a last-minute holiday get together. You can thank me later.
