Besides a tree, Santa and Elf on the Shelf, one of the other holiday traditions Jews miss out on is Christmas stockings. I received a stocking once from a college friend who filled it with alcohol and snacks from the dining hall, but I've never had the pleasure of putting one together myself. 

So, when Method asked me to participate in their first ever Pinterest contest, by pinning my favorite ideas for stocking stuffers on a board entitled "Method Holiday Happy", I was more than a little excited to pretend I've been doing this for years. (I don't even own a fireplace! Shhh!!!)

I mean, what better way for a Jew to celebrate Christmas than with a virtual stocking? I might even build an imaginary gingerbread house and hang an invisible wreath on my front door!

Above are 12 items from my Pinterest board (click here to see the whole thing plus links to purchase) that I think would make excellent stocking stuffers. They are…

Select-O-Stick Charades, a crocheted owl mask from Anthopologie, a candy cane striped bowtie, a gift certificate to DryBar hair salon, Ridley's Jacks, The Gingerbread Man hot salt body scrub from Philosophy, rainbow leg warmers from BabyLegs, Stacrobots, wooden flexi robots, light switch stickers from Henrietta Swift, Strongman bandages and of course, Method's Holiday collection. 

Method's holiday collection includes two limited edition sets. The first is Sugar + Spice with the fresh, modern fragrances of Sugared Mint and Gingerbread. The second is Evergreen Nice which has the more nostalgic aromas of Frosted Fir and Mistletoe.

Not only do these pretty holiday-themed dispensers make perfect stocking stuffers, they are naturally derived, biodegradable, never tested on animals, triclosan-free and made from 100% recycled plastic. You can find them at Target, and (for Canada).

If you'd like to participate in Method's Holiday Happy Pinterest contest for a chance to win a bundle of Method holiday goodies, you can find the rules at the top of my Pinterest board.

And now, I'm going to hang a large neon reindeer from my balcony.

After I drink a cup of egg nog and design an advent calendar. 

In my head.
