Every year, after the chaos of buying my main gifts, I actually look forward to doing some therapeutic shopping for some affordable stocking stuffers. Although sometimes I’m never really sure what items to buy, I try my hardest to not get the same items I got the previous year for the same person. Every year, I look for items that will benefit the person I’m buying for, while at the same time trying to reach a different reaction every year (obviously hoping that it will be good)! In other words, I’d rather keep it interesting by switching up items that I purchase every other Christmas.
Firstly, you buy your main gifts and spend a little more, so the idea of stocking stuffers is not to spend a huge amount of mula on them, but to get useful items that you know your loved ones will use.
If you have a big family like mine, you’ll want to create your big stocking stuffer list early (you’ll want to keep this list so that you don’t buy the same item for the same person the year after). I always start by writing down everyone’s names and creating a list of items that I believe that they can use on an everyday basis. Like most of you, I’m on a budget when it comes to holiday shopping. I’m going to share with you what some of my go to stocking stuffer items are (under $10), so that it if you’re stuck on stocking stuffers, it will hopefully give you an idea of what to buy too.
Whether it’s your grandparents, moms, dads, husbands, wives, kid(s), or friends, below is my big stocking stuffer list of items that you could potentially buy for any one of your loved ones! Note that these items are for all genders and ages!
Activity Book (Crossword puzzles, sudoku, word search, etc.)
Disposable Shavers/Mini Shaving Cream
Console Games (A lot of places, such as EV Games, carry games that are on sale)
Mini Board Games
Deck of Cards
Reading USB Light
Eye Glass Repair Kit
Nail Care Kit
The items on this list are a general idea of things that can be good stocking stuffers. I personally like to get everyone up to 5 - 10 stocking stuffers depending on my budget! Really, the list could go on. But for this year, this is my big stocking stuffer list. If you’re stuck on ideas, I hope this list gives you some inspiration for finding stocking stuffers for your loved ones this year. Happy shopping loves!
