This time of year requires all types of gift buying -- the big and expensive items and the smaller, thoughtful things. One of my favorite holiday traditions is smaller gift-giving for Secret Santa exchanges and stockings.
I've been making my lists recently and thought I'd share some of my favorite smaller gift ideas. My list below has something for all ages for these gifting-giving opportunities. I've included links.

- Hand lotion, like EOS Shea Better Hand Cream
- Lip balm, like EOS Super Soft Shea Lip Balm
- Chocolates and candy
- Tooth brushes
- Coffee, hot chocolate and tea, like Tazo's Prickly Pear Cactus Tea
- Packets of gum
