Holiday Stocking Stuffers 2018

Sometimes, it's the teeny weeny gifts that are the hardest to buy.  If you're done all your holiday shopping (or not) but have yet to think about stocking stuffers, we have you covered. Read on for some great ones you can find right in Oxford County.

1. Plein Air to Abstraction Booklets

Where to Get it: Annandale National Historic Site


Just last year, Annandale National Historic Site was host to an exceptional art exhibition from The Hevenor Collection. With many never-before-seen artworks, this collection was a dazzling display of beautiful Canadian art.  While it's gone now, stunning pocket-sized booklets have been created to commemorate the exhibit. It's the perfect gift for the art-lover on your list!  

2. Delicious Fudge

Where to Get it: Coyle's Country Store


Smell that? That's the brand new, fresh fudge being made at Coyle's Country Store.  Grab a package of this home made goodness and pop it into a stocking for a truly sweet surprise. 

3. Repurposed Mittens 

Where to Get it: Scotch and Lace


These adorable mitts are the perfect addition to any winter wardrobe.  Help the person on your list warm up in fashion with these mittens which are made out of old recycled sweaters for a perfectly imperfect mix-matched pair. 

4. Home Made Pickles

Where to Get it: Greener Pastures Eco Farm


Take the old German tradition of putting a pickle ornament on the tree to a whole new level! Greener Pastures Eco Farm makes a delicious jar of home made dill pickles sure to be the perfect and quirky stocking stuffer. 

5. A Funky Julie Hawkins Phone Case

Where to Get it: online


Help them use their phone to express themselves! These beautiful works of art by Julie Hawkins make for the perfect pop of colour as anyone's phone case. Check out her website for a fabulous collection of art work printed right on the case. 

6. Bag of Local Coffee

Where to Get it: Kintore Coffee or Early Bird Coffee (check websites for a list of suppliers)


Help them start their morning off on the right foot with a bag of local coffee.  Both Kintore Coffee and Early Bird Coffee call Oxford their home (and we couldn't be happier about that).  With rich, bold flavours, there's no better smell on earth and the taste is fantastic too!

7. Handcrafted Soap

Where to Get it: Wild Comfort Body Care


Grab an all-natural bar of soap made of halthy ingredients.  Wild Comfort Body Care has a fantastic selection of beautifully-coloured and and amazing-smelling soap in scents like anise-mint, lemon grass, cinnamint, goat's milk and more. 

8. Lavender Handcream from Belvedere Lavender Farm

Where to Get it: Floral Buds


Belvedere Lavender Farm creates a selection of eleven natural skin care products using the lavendar found on site at Belvedere Lavender Farm (owned by Erik Weisseling of Floral Buds).  Try their heavenly array of products and pop some of your favs into a stocking for a loved one! 

9. Terrarium Christmas Bulbs

Where to get it: Wildlife Gardening


How cool are these ornaments? These terrarium bulbs make for the perfect stocking stuffer, particularly for the environmentalist on your list.  These bulbs are created by Wildlife Gardening who specialize in increasing and encouraging the ecosystem and biodiversity through workshops, garden installations, an on-site native plant nursery and more. Make it a green Christmas this year!
