To me, stocking stuffers are a tricky thing… I hate the idea of giving a gift that someone doesn’t really need in order to simply fill a stocking. That feels so wasteful to me and the antithesis of my goals to reduce the waste in our home. Instead, I always brainstorm stocking stuffer ideas that are desirable, fun, and budget-friendly. This year I thought it would be fun to share my favorites with you!
The Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Any Budget
Another factor to consider when shopping for stocking stuffers is your budget. If you’re anything like me, you have probably already spent the majority of your gift giving budget on the big ticket items. So stocking stuffers tend to either fall to the last minute or they need to be very affordable! So I intentionally curated this gift guide to fit into a variety of budgets, starting with ideas that are under $5!
Stocking Stuffer Ideas, Under $5
This cult-favorite moisturizer makes for a luxurious yet affordable stocking stuffer!
This classic carabiner clip keyring is a wonderfully functional stocking stuffer idea for pretty much anyone who loses their keys allll the time. It’s also great for outdoorsy folks.
I use the holidays to restock Sean’s Burt’s Bees stock every year. This gift set is my plan this year because I love that he can soften his hands, too!
Another cult-favorite beauty product, this bath soak helps to detoxify the body. It’s the perfect tiny treat for anyone who loves to take a bath.
This diminutive but stylish vase is a charming and affordable gift for the home decor lover.
Candles are a perennial favorite and this one is just sooo cute!
There’s nothing better than a good face mask… but this multi-step treatment is a great deal! You can get 2 for $5, which means you could keep one for yourself, too.
This cute match jar is the perfect complement to a candle for anyone’s stocking.

Drybrushing has become quite popular this year and this brush is an affordable way to invite someone to try it.
A great candle is always a good, easy gift. I love this one because the container is so pretty and can be upcycling to hold makeup brushes later.
