The Comforter is the largest bubble bar Lush offers, but it’s large enough to be broken in half and used 2-3 times, which makes it a rather luxurious gift. You crumple the bar under warm running water as you fill your bath, and soon scented bubble will appear. If you’re not particularly fond of bubble baths, you can still stuff your stockings with other popular products, like bath bombs for a few dollars less.
The Happy Hut playhouse is a basic tent that can easily fit inside a bedroom or play area as a reading nook or other place for your toddler to sit and play. The material is durable and can be cleaned with a cloth, so if you wanted to take it outside for a little shelter from the sun, it would work well — just don’t keep it outside in the weather. It folds up and comes with a drawstring bag to carry it. The colors are vibrant and no tools are needed to assemble. Just insert the poles and it will be ready to play. It also comes in a variety of colors. (Okay, so it might not fit in your average stocking, but it is sure to be a hit for your little ones). Be sure to clip the coupon to get this deal for $24.
Socks are sometimes simply socks, and that’s boring. These socks, on the other hand, are decorated with amusing and often relatable words to match your personality.
