If you need some Yuletide inspiration for what to put in your loved ones’ stockings, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled the following list of stocking stuffers that will both spread holiday cheer and keep teeth healthy and strong!
- Gum Approved By Buddy the Elf
- Essentials for a Merry & Bright Smile
- For Those on the Nice List
If you’ve seen the holiday movie Elf, you know that Buddy the Elf enjoys a wacky breakfast of leftover spaghetti topped with sugary ingredients like syrup, M&Ms, and Pop-Tarts. For loved ones with the same insatiable sweet tooth, help them keep grinchy decay at bay with a few packs of sugar-free gum! There are a variety of flavors, from fruity to minty, that are sure to please any palate. This small stocking stuffer packs quite a punch, as chewing sugarless gum for at least 20 minutes after eating stimulates saliva production, helps to clean teeth, and freshens breath all at the same time.
From travel-size to full-size dental care products, classic oral hygiene items are practical stocking stuffers that everyone needs. Think toothbrush, floss, toothpaste, and mouthwash. To jazz things up for a more adventurous recipient (or even someone who has been especially naughty this year), why not gift them one of the many wild toothpaste flavors on the market? You can find some unusual flavorings, including bacon, cupcake, licorice, curry, and even chocolate!
For someone who has been especially nice this year, a nifty dental gadget may be the perfect stocking stuffer. Some of our office favorites include a Waterpik® water flosser, which can help improve gum health, and an rechargeable electric toothbrush. The Oral-B Pro 1000 is a fantastic toothbrush with a two-minute timer, pressure sensor, and charging dock, and can be found for less then $50 at several retailers.
