DaBomb Bath Fizzers
For someone who likes relaxation with a twist, give this bomb a chance to fizz out and watch a small toy appear. About the size of a tennis ball, DaBomb offers a variety of scents to make bath time a treat indeed.
For Mom Friends (or Anyone)
anna naturals Tea
Seemingly shaped for the stocking, anna naturals teas come in round tins perfect for the (not too small) stocking. (They also have a massage oil that will slide right in the stocking too.) Anna seems to know mamas well because they offer both an energizing and sweet dreams tea.
On the off-chance that you’ve somehow missed the exquisite decadence that is the Bequet, add these to any loved one’s stocking for a few delightful bites.
