Cheap Stocking Stuffer Ideas

All of these were $10 or less as of 12/19/2017, Amazon products prices generally fluctuate so these aren’t guaranteed to stay under $10. 🙂

For Women:*

Fleece lined socks in cute patterns! (some patterns arrive before Christmas, some do not, check carefully!)

Faux druzy earrings that remind me of more expensive Kate Spade version, but can’t beat the price point!

OPI Nail polish! Love this high quality polish with so many pretty colors.

Drawing pens for journals, calendars, adult coloring.

Watercolor Journals for doodles, list making, journaling etc. You get a 4 pack so a little more than $10 but great to split up.

Chapstick – I love Burts Bees and you can divide up this 4 pack!

Cozy circle scarf

If by Amy  Carmichael – These is an excellent little book of spiritual encouragement

Scrub-Mommy I’ve kind of been dying to try these. #nerdstatus #momswhoclean #orpretendto

Bath bombs from the body shop or this bigger confetti lush one!

Good smelling candles are always a win! I’m a fan of Mrs Meyers products so I’d like to try this one!

A box of their favorite tea or coffee!

For Men:*

A tiny, but high-powered flashlight with clip.

Basic (aka manly) journal comes in lines, dots, or blank for whatever you want to fill it with.

5 Crowns Card Game – my family loves this card game, easy to play in large groups or even two people!

Bicycle Cards for poker, euchre, and card game. Cards wear out fast so never a bad idea to add some to the stocking!

Working hands cream great for guys who work outside or anyone who needs a good basic hand cream.  (I have the foot cream and swear by it!)

Star Wars Mad Libs – May the force be with you!

All natural charcoal deodorizers – Great for cars, gym bags, backpacks!

Water bottles tend to disappear at our house…Ello glass water bottle (fill with candy or gift coupons!)

Thinking putty – part stress relief part creativity builder!

If you’re man has a beard, beard oil is a great gift! Also this beard trimming set is great!

Carhartt Knit Hat to keep the cold at bay. My dad’s had his for 103 years.

Cheap and thoughtful stocking stuffers you can order on amazon!

Three other things to add:

  • Favorite candy (Lindor truffles are always in our stockings! Dark chocolate for me, milk chocolate for him)
  • Favorite cologne or perfume (if they are extra good!)
  • Gift coupons like for a free backrub, car wash, night of babysitting, trip to guitar center without complaining–any act of service that will bless your loved one!
  • Gift cards! Even $5-10 for a favorite fast food joint or coffee shop.

My mom is a ninja-level stocking stuffer! Opening stockings was always one of my favorite parts of Christmas growing up, proof that it doesn’t take a lot of money to give thoughtful gifts!

Poll: Do you wrap your stocking stuffers? 

*Clearly, many of these presents could be for either gender.

  1. Weirdly enough we never did stockings growing up. I don’t know if it was because my parents weren’t raised doing stockings BUT we always did Christmas Eve baggies (filled with jammies, a movie, candy, and something fun) then on Christmas morning we did have presents at the foot of our beds which were put into our pillow cases which we’d laid out the night before. It was so fun to awake to presents at our feet. I plan to do the same with my children one day and in the meantime we just exchange thoughtful gifts after Christmas dinner.

    1. Interesting Lindsay! Could I ask if you are from the US or another country? I’ve never heard of the pillowcase thing so just curious if it is a regional tradition! Any way you celebrate it Christmas is special!
