Stocking stuffers may not be the main Christmas attraction, but they can be just as thoughtful as the gifts wrapped beneath the Christmas tree. But, when it comes to finding fun, useful, and cool small gifts for everyone on your holiday list, including men, women, and children of all ages, you also want to make sure they’re affordable. Stocking stuffers can range from tiny tech gadgets to incredible beauty finds and everything in between, making them one of the easiest gifts to obtain. Even if you’re running errands at the last minute, you can pick up some of these stocking stuffers!
While stocking stuffers may not be as exciting as big ticket items like cool tech gadgets and luxury goods, we believe that they can show how the small things matter and are more memorable than you think.
So we’ve compiled a list of the best stocking stuffers that will delight your family while not breaking the bank.
- Mini Candles
These Christmas tree inspired mini candles are so cute and festive that they make perfect gifts for the stocking stuffers!
Contrary to popular belief, a candle is not a “waste of time” or a “bad gift.” In fact, it’s a good gift — a thoughtful one, even — and it’s simple to find. You don’t even have to spend money on expensive candles (although you can certainly go that route if you wish).
Our sense of smell is the only one that is directly linked to memory and emotion. Scented candles make one-of-a-kind meaningful gifts because they have the ability to transport us to a special place, whether imagined or remembered. Many shops sell mini candles that make for perfect gifts in that special someone’s Christmas stocking. It’s practical and something that’s really thoughtful,
- Phone Mount
Texting and driving is completely unacceptable, but it’s nearly impossible to avoid using your phone for navigation or music while driving. Surprise your loved ones with a phone mount for their car. Even if they already have one of their own, we feel that it’s always a good idea to have an extra one just in case. You can get creative with it as there are so many different phone mounts now available. You can customize it with their names for a special touch or just get a basic one if that’s more their style.
- Apple Airtags
A little on the pricier side, but if you have an Apple fan on your list, they’ll be overjoyed to find an AirTag in their stocking. This cool tracker is simple to install, connects to Apple’s unrivaled Find My network, and has best-in-class privacy and security features. They’re perfect for travelers and even pet owners. You can attach these airtags to your luggage so that you never lose it, and on your pet so they can roam freely and you can rest easy and always see where they are. They’re also the perfect size to fit in Christmas stockings.
- Jade Roller & Gua Sha Set
Give these skincare tools to help relieve puffiness on the face or muscle tension. Gua shas are known to lift the skin and shape the face, while the jade roller can cool and energize the skin. Some of these are even packed in a premium gift box that make it look beautiful and perfect for gifts. It might not be something that everyone would buy for themselves because they deem it unnecessary, but they’ll be thanking you for this gift once they start using it themselves.
- Personalised Christmas Baubles
A personalised Christmas bauble is the perfect Christmas stocking stuffer idea that will keep on giving year after year. Every year, your recipients will smile as they hang their very own personalised bauble on their tree. Christmas baubles can be customised to suit every personality or decorating style for your Christmas tree.
There are plenty of bold, fuss-free, or fun designs to choose from, such as a simple colored bauble, a bauble with a colorful Christmas character attached, a beautifully hand painted design with personalisation, or a clear bauble filled with a soft center of feathers. You can also try to personalise different Christmas ornaments such as Christmas tree toppers and Christmas tree picks.
- Fragrance Spray Set
This stocking stuffer is a delightful gift that your recipient will undoubtedly use wherever and whenever they go. Poo-Puri toilet spray set includes three 1.4-ounce bottles: tropical hibiscus, original citrus, and lavender vanilla. They simply spray the bowl before leaving, and no one knows. They can bring it out with them wherever they go and it’s perfect because they come in travel sized bottles so it’s easy to bring around.
- Reusable Straws
Giving reusable Christmas gifts is an excellent way to introduce friends and family to the concept of going zero waste. Reusable straws are always handy to have at home. With more restaurants following this zero waste route, we always find ourselves looking for straws in our home should we be taking away food. Reusable straws now come in so many different colors and designs and are always a practical thing to have around.
- Hand Creams
You can never go wrong with hand creams. This is one of the best stocking stuffers for providing your recipient with the softest hands ever. Everyone always needs more hand creams as they’re great to bring around and moisturize whenever you need.
- Hand Sanitizers
This year’s hot Christmas stocking stuffer is hand sanitizer. Sanitizer bottles are becoming commonplace in foyers, desks, and cars, and medical experts even advise placing them on your table, always an arm’s reach away. The gift of wellness is thoughtful and caring in these uncertain times.
- Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Do you have a friend who enjoys throwing a good party? She doesn’t need a large speaker to get a louder sound. Gift the gift of music this festive season so they can bring the party wherever they go. There are many mini ones that work almost as good as the bigger ones so you don’t have to worry about the quality if you’re getting on one these this Christmas season.
