Hello. I'm married, and I'm looking for good stocking stuffers for my wife.


She is a kind-of girly girl. She works part-time. Likes trinkets and candy.


We talked and we both like a stocking mixed with cheap things and nice things... and by nice I mean no more than $20 things. I know I'll be putting mints and such that she likes in there, but beyond that I'm a bit lost. We've been married 5 years but this is the first time we could really afford to spend money on each other.


Ideas welcome.

Go into Ulta (I count at least 3 in Michigan, but I'm not google-mapping Ferndale) and tell the sales lady exactly this. You can even pretend to be mute, put "I'd like help" at the top, print it out, and have the sales lady select things for you, and not have to say a word.

Then take your pick of the juniors section at Nordstroms, Forever 21, H&M, or Sears and pick a couple pieces of costume jewelry. [You're married, so you don't have to worry about AoM's myth that even costume jewelry signals "serious."] Costume jewelry is the stuff made of plastic and tin.

Ulta, interesting. Not really close.

You're right about jewelry. She still likes Claire's stuff (now THAT is an awkward place for a guy to shop in alone).

You could try Sephora, but it runs more expensive

Story with a purpose: Before I met my husband, I read all sorts of dating advice. Some I knew was good. Some I knew was bad. A bit that was silly but couldn't hurt was to wear a "statement" [large, obvious] necklace on your first date, so he has something obvious to compliment you on. I found something for $3 at Nordstroms. I would have worn it to the wedding, but it didn't fit with the dress's neckline.

Actually there was an Ulta that is close, and I did go there last night. Thanks.

Claire's would work.  Also, try Bed, Bath and Beyond and/or Bath and Body Works.  Girls like lotions and bath beads and crap.

Get used to awkward shopping trips.  Its the nature of the business.

Stockings.

The fleece-lined and sweater ones that came back/out last year

From Buckle, $9.95

Like.

That reminds me last year someone was selling stockings like that that looked like sharks. It was inspired, and would be morbidly hilarious every 28 days.

Look for thigh high socks.  Rebekah has a thing about being cold.

Thigh-highs are suddenly easier to find. But I prefer fleece-lined or sweater tights to wear with skirts, and knee-highs to wear with pants.

Cheap jewelry.
