To me, stockings can be one of the hardest things to shop for… I mean how hard is it to find small items that fit into a long sock that a person will actually like?! Pretty difficult. This guide should help alleviate some of that stress you feel when looking for small gifts as I’ve rounded up my favorite stocking stuffers under $25. Crisis averted.
Thank You Cards ($20) – A tradition in our family is thank you cards in our stockings. We have no excuse after Christmas is over than to write our thank you notes to friends and family for the generous gifts they gave during the holiday season.
Water Bottle ($24) – For the sporty girl, or the person who likes to keep healthy a bottle for water is always a great idea. When I see water I drink water, so my bottle stays full and is always near by so I never have an excuse to not get the recommended amount per day.
Magazine Subscription ($5-20) My favorite magazine is Food Network Magazine (I get them sent to Australia for my family every few months – and save them all). Amazon has so many subscriptions to choose from (a lot are $5 for Black Friday) and can let you know the top sellers in any topic that might interest your recipient.
Candles ($16) – I love having candles in stockings (especially the monogrammed ones from C.Wonder).
Meyer Hand Soap ($4) – This is hands down the best smelling hand soap out there. I could smell my hands for hours after this. awkward.
Bath Soak ($23) – This rose milk bath soak will leave skin super soft, and smell great. It’s like a spa experience without leaving the house.
Fred the Tea Infuser ($5) – This is the most adorable way to make morning tea.
Ornament ($10) – Every year in our stocking is a new ornament to put on the Christmas tree, it usually relates to a big event from the pervious year like trips, dance recitals, nutcracker performances, or huge accomplishments.
Text Gloves ($24.50) – Even in the coldest weather a text can still be sent – definitely a good thing for all us Floridians who think 50° is cold.
Beauty Blender ($19) – These have become very popular with women and bloggers. You can find tutorials all over the blogosphere on how to use them. I personally use the beauty blender every day, and have asked for one.. or a couple on my list.
Orange ($1) – This may seem silly, but it’s a tradition in my house that the bottom of our stockings have a big ‘ol orange. I don’t know why this tradition came about but it’s always the last thing to come out of the stocking.
