And here we are: Day 5 of the 5 Days of Gift Guides! I’m finishing things up with some stocking stuffer ideas, all of which are under $50! They would also make great little additions to a gift that still needs just a little something, or even a secret Santa gift. I tried to pick things that were really fun and kind of silly because I know that those are the kinds of gifts I love getting in my stocking. I’ve had a lot of fun putting these gift guides together this week and I hope they help you! So get to it, and be sure to let me know what you’re putting on your wish list this year! Happy shopping!
- Cool Phone Case
I feel like a phone case is a universally great gift. You can find one for pretty much any phone Society6 has some of the coolest prints and patterns and they’re all $35! These would make a great gift for your bestie or your siblings or even a secret Santa.
- Fun Sleep Mask
I’ve noticed that stores always come out with fun sleep masks around the holidays and I think they would make a really sweet stocking stuffer.
- Hand Cream Set
I always get hand cream in my stocking and I’m so thankful because it’s just one of those things I always forget to buy for myself. What I love about little sets like these is that you can give it as one gift or separate the items and give one hand cream to three different people. That’s the kind of multi-tasking I can get behind!
- Cactus Candle
A novelty gift if I ever saw one! I think it must be tradition to include something silly as a stocking stuffer and this quirky little candle is perfect. Whether it actually gets burned or not, it’s a cute decor piece that’ll jazz up any shelf.
- Thermal Mug
Now, this may not be the most original of gifts but it’s one of those things that you just can’t go wrong with. Whether its kitschy like this one, or something a little more streamlined (I’m thinking durable stainless steal) this is a gift that’s practical, and that’s thoughtful too, right?
- 36 Hours In …
The New York Times released this series of books called “36 Hours In …” and they each feature a different continent and highlight the best things to do and see and travel to. I bought my dad “36 Hours in Asia” last year for Christmas and it is seriously cool.
- Gourmet Popcorn
No stocking is complete without a little treat. I swear, mine is usually half filled with chocolates and I’m not complaining! But why not try something a little different, a little special? This gourmet popcorn is definitely that. Whether your poison is sweet or salty, there is something for everyone!
- Instaframe Props
These little set is super cute! It comes with frames and props and things you can use to make your own little Instagram inspired photo booth! This is a fun gift because pictures are memories, and these props will help your loved one create some hilarious ones.
- Lush Shampoo Bar
As much as I love fun and quirky gifts in my stocking, I also really like getting practical things. My mom got my sisters and I these Lush shampoo bars a few years ago and they were really great! They last a super long time and they’re still in the realm of things that people don’t necessarily buy for themselves which, you already know by now, is something that I think makes a great gift.
