I’m not going to tell you that wounds are healed any faster with cartoon Band-Aids. I cannot promise that. But it sure wouldn’t hurt to try, would it? Especially since Band-Aid has a ton of really cute designs now.
Honestly, I love Band-Aids as stocking stuffers. I know, at first they can seem like a strange idea. It’s like your recipient has to get injured in order to use your gift. But the chance of people getting cut and needing a Band-Aid is extremely likely. And these are so cute.
Band-Aid sent us a bunch of their designs to check out … and my kitten was just as curious about them as I was (and he’s part of the reason why I don’t have any photos of these open. He wanted to be constantly up in the mix and a cute pain in my neck).
We received J.Crew crewcuts Band-Aids for the preps, Isaac Mizrahi Band-Aids for the trend setter, Disney Frozen Band-Aids for the little girls, Jake and the Never Land Pirates Band-Aids for the little boys, and UR VETERAN HEROES™ Band-Aids for the patriot. The best, though, was the Hello Kitty Band-Aids. That box matches the Hello Kitty Band-Aids and celebrates the 40th anniversary of Hello Kitty. Can we talk about that for a minute? How did Hello Kitty go 40 years without people realizing she was a kid dressed up as a cat. I mean, really Sanrio? Really? I’m going to give some of these as stocking stuffers this year, but Hello Kitty is mine.
I think these are great stocking stuffers for adults because everyone wants an excuse to wear a cartoon. But they’re great for kids too. I really don’t know why, but kids love to just put on Band-Aids, even when they’re not hurt. They like to wear them like stickers. So it would cute to give them a box of Frozen Band-Aids in their stocking and let them have at it. Plus, what’s great is that you can just run to your closest drugstore and pick them up. This isn’t something you already have had to order. It’s a really great last minute favor.
What you also might want to pick up when you’re there is the NEOSPORIN® NEO-TO-GO!® First Aid Antiseptic/Pain Relieving Spray. It’s sort of brilliant. It’s small — so it fits in both purses and pencil boxes — and you can pull it out any time there’s a scratch or burn that needs attention. Your little kids shouldn’t be getting burned in school but the older ones who play with Bunsen burners in Science class could really benefit from having this handy (really, those things are dangerous. Some kid in my middle school burned off his eyebrow with one!). If you want something a little more fun and less on the “damage control” side, check out the NEOSPORIN® LIP HEALTH® Overnight Renewal Therapy. Okay, sure, it’s for your damaged lips if we’re being technical, but it’s sort of just cute lip protection. And I am a huge fan of lip balm in stockings, especially since I am constantly losing mine.
If you’re ready to run out and grab Band-Aid products for stocking stuffers, be sure to take this $1.50 off any two BAND-AID First Aid products coupon with you.
