Before you hang the stockings by the chimney with care, you need to think about how you’re going to fill ’em. When it comes to stocking stuffers, every family has a different approach. Some families go the practical route.
Some stick to Santa-shaped chocolates and candy canes. Others go all-out with personalized gifts for each family member. No matter where your family falls, shop these stocking stuffer gift ideas to cover all the bases.
Each of these gifts are small enough to fit in most stockings and, best, of all, come with an affordable price tag (Many are under $10!). That means since these picks won’t go beyond your holiday budget, you can stuff everyone’s stocking with even more tiny treasures.
So, leave the sugar-coated treats and sweets up to Santa and his elves. You? Take a look at these unique yet useful stocking stuffers and steal the show. No matter which family member you’re shopping for, these gift ideas will make everyone (even your family’s designated Grinch) happy on Christmas morning.
(And if you’re still on the hunt for something specific, check out these stocking stuffer gifts for toddlers and men. They’re the hardest ones to shop for, anyway.)
