My Ultimate Guide to The Best Stocking Stuffers

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!
