Opening stockings on Christmas morning has always been one of my favorite traditions. I love sitting by the fire, looking around at all of the pajama-clad family members in the room, and watching them pull out all of fun gifts. It is amazing how many surprise goodies can fit in such a small space! The first Christmas we were married, Will and I decided our only gifts to each other would be whatever we could fit into our stockings for $20. We got really creative with what we gifted that year (and Will got a lot of stroopwafels ;)). With a similar budget in mind, this gift guide gives ideas for stocking stuffers under $25, with most under $15.
| Gloves | Scarf | Ultimate Strength Hand Salve | Art Print | Portable Phone Charger |
| Nail Polish | Socks | Velvet Bows | Clay Mask | Ball Earrings | Journals |
| Lavender Candle | Cotton Cocktail Napkin Roll | Stay All Day Lipstick |
Warm weather accessories:
Gloves (especially classy tech gloves), socks, and scarves make great stocking stuffers that can be used immediately in the cold winter weather. These are great to pick up throughout the season and are versatile enough to gift to so many people.
Some of my favorite beauty items are bright red or light pink nail polish, a clay mask, liquid lipstick that lasts all day, and Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (I keep a tube in my purse at all times!). I always find that nail polish and lipstick make me feel more put together, even when I’m running around trying to finish errands. A face mask is the ultimate tiny luxury and would be so fun to find in a stocking. I have used sheet masks and clay masks and love both!
For the girly girl, these pretty velvet hair bows and fun earrings are a great glam addition.
Sometimes the best stocking stuffers are the unexpected gifts that are just for fun. Pretty journals or a lavender candle would make great gifts to relax with after the holidays.
If you know their style, a small art print is a great, unique stocking stuffer (roll it up in a small tube) and supports small artists.
Each year portable chargers become more and more affordable. With their small size, and now budget prices, portable chargers are great for anyone on your list.
One of my favorite items on this list is a roll of cotton cocktail napkins. Will’s uncle introduced these to me when he was visiting a few weeks ago and I can’t get over how brilliant this product is! Cotton cocktail napkins come 50 to a roll with perforations between each napkin. They come in 33 colors and can be washed and reused, or disposed of after a big get-together. And at only $25, they make anyone look like a fabulous party host, but don’t break your budget. These are perfect for the entertainer in your life!
I’m getting excited about stuffing stockings already!
