We admit it: we love Christmas and all its glittery trappings, including stocking stuffers that are practical and that we know will be appreciated.  So along with the chocolates, oranges and odd lumps of coal, here's what we're planning on slipping into those Christmas stockings this year:

For the ski enthusiast: [Link Removed] – Because our favorite ski bunny never fails to come back from a day on the slopes without dry, chapped lips.  And a big smile.

For the man of the house: [Link Removed]  – Because, whether he wants to admit it or not, he's definitely aging along with the rest of us.  Getting him to use them is a whole other story.

For the teen: [Link Removed]  – It's a thankless task, trying to get a teen to apply sunscreen every day without the usual grumblings.  New daily moisturizer Anthelios XL KA SPF 100 with Mexoryl XL, SX and Tinosorb S just makes the job that much easier.

For the weekend warrior: [Link Removed]  – Not just for those with arthritis, Voltaren Emulgel is also the occasional athlete's best friend.  Far be it for us to discourage those who decide to run marathons on a Saturday with no training, only to spend Sunday recuperating on the couch.  Voltaren is a quick way to speed up recovery and ease the pain.

For the woman who does everything (that would be all of us): [Link Removed]  – Even better than the delicious smell (you'll want to eat it up with a spoon!) and the soft, smooth skin is the implied understanding that you can take as long as you want in the bath.

For your friend who is off to sunnier climes: [Link Removed]  – We wouldn't be a true friend if we let her bake under the hot, hot sun!  With this easy-to-use and natural-looking self tanner, she can spend more time shopping for a gift to bring back for us.  Two words: duty free.

No matter what you find in your stocking this year, best wishes to you and yours this holiday.
