Happy Holidays: Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Who hasn’t had that moment where they blanked on what gifts to buy as the holidays drew closer? A mix of stress and slight anxiety, it’s the worst feeling in the world. To help ease some of that I have compiled a list of popular stocking stuffer ideas. The best part? All of these ideas are under $50 so they won’t break the bank.

  1. Ice Roller ($15.99)

    This is the perfect stocking stuffer for the beauty lover in your life. This handy device is an absolute must for anyone who gets a puffy face from a night of too much wine or junk food (Or both?) and just needs a quick and easy way to de-puff. Not just that, but it’s also tiny enough to fit into a stocking. More on the benefits of ice rolling can be found here.

  2. S’Well Bottle – White Marble ($35.00)

    A co-worker once recommended the S’Well Bottle company to me when I stood in the office one day complaining to her about how it was only noon and the water in my bottle was already room temperature. For someone who loves their water cold, this bottle is amazing. Not only are S’Well bottles absolutely gorgeous with their huge variety of designs and sizes, but also the website states that they can keep liquids cold for 24 hours (Although I’ve witnessed my water staying cold for almost 30 hrs) and hot for 12 hours.

  3. Faux Fur Pom Pom Beanie ($13.99)

    With the temperatures rapidly dropping, having a stylish accessory that will also keep you warm is important. I have been obsessed with pom-pom beanies lately since they can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Here is a gorgeous yet affordable option and the best part is that they have a variety of 10 different colors to choose from.

  4. Yankee Candle Small Tumbler Candle ($15.99)

    Who doesn’t love a cozy candle during the Christmas time? The variety of scents can make a home so much more festive and a small one fits into a stocking to surprise your friends and family. Yankee Candle even has a deal right now for “Buy 2 – Get 2 Free” so even more bang for your buck.

  5. Makeup Blender Sponges ($4.99 – $15.00)

    Blender sponges are always a good staple to have in your makeup bag since they help you perfect your signature look. However, it is recommended to toss them after 2-3 months since the bacteria buildup can be so high. Breakout alert! Help your friends look their best with one of these.

  6. Sephora Cream Lip Stain Set ($12.00)

    This set contains 4 lip stains will make your holiday pout look smudge-proof. And since they come in colors from a gorgeous red to a subtle nude in shades it will perfectly match any outfit.

  7. Aerie Pom-tastic Slipper ($9.97)

    These cute sherpa slippers have a detachable pom-pom for easy washing without ruining the look. They come in a dark navy color with grey glitter pom poms that can be removed and switched out with different ones from perhaps the beanie mentioned above?

  8. Crazy Ideas Lined Journal ($9.95)

    A tiny notebook that can be thrown into a purse for important notes on the go is always a good idea. This small ombré one with gold foil is a great fit for anyone.

  9. “Messy Bun + Getting Stuff Done” Coffee Mug ($5.99)

    The best way to kick off the day is with a cup of coffee, tea or even delicious hot chocolate. But more importantly, for me, the mug it’s presented in also makes a huge difference. Having my coffee in an adorable mug in the morning makes me feel like I have my sh*t together. Seriously, something so little and simple can make a difference in my whole day. And Target has a huge variety of the cutest coffee mugs for everyone on your gift list.

  10. Lightning to USB Tassel Keychain ($8.95)

    There is nothing I hate more than running out of battery on my phone or tablet while traveling. A close second would be having to carry various cables to charge said devices. This nifty USB charging cable is hidden within a tassel keychain that easily can be clipped onto a tote, cross-body or even a wallet and takes up very minimal space. So all you need to bring is the adaptor or a portable battery. I think I’ll have one in every color for each of my purses, please?



And there you have it, my 10 recommendations for stocking stuffers this year. What will you be gifting your loved ones? I would love to read your ideas.
