Stocking Stuffer Ideas
10 Things to Consider When Buying a Stocking Stuffer Gift
1. Don’t spend too much money
Remember that the point of a stocking stuffer is to not spend a lot of money!
Especially if you have to find gifts for a lot of people, this is certainly something you’ll want to keep in mind, and your bank account will thank you!
2. Be consistent for each family member
Everyone will have a different idea of how many stocking stuffer gifts is appropriate.
One larger gift? 3 small ones? No matter what you decide- be consistent!
Shopping for your kids? Make sure they each get the same amount of gifts and the same level of gifts that way no one feels left out!
3. Think outside the box
Stocking stuffer gifts are the perfect opportunity to think outside the box and give your family something really unique.
The sky’s the limit, have some fun and consider some truly unique, wacky gifts!
4. Be practical
Sometimes it is okay to have a more practical gift, especially when it comes to stocking stuffers.
Does the family need some new fuzzy socks? That’s a great stocking stuffer idea!
Think of fun items your family actually needs and throw them in for a present you know they will love and use.
5. Tech accessories are great
While the actual technology is better suited for a full-on Christmas present, accessories make great stocking stuffer ideas.
Whether that is a new phone case, keyboard cover, or trending pop socket, there are tons of options to give out to all of your tech-loving family members!
6. Girls night in
If you are shopping for your mother, sister, or daughter, a great stocking stuffer idea is to find affordable items to make for the perfect girl's night!
A nice new shade of nail polish, face mask, or cozy slippers makes for the perfect gifts that also involve having the perfect night in!
7. Movie night
A great new DVD, a thing of popcorn, and a bag of candy. Simple, but totally awesome!
Pick a different movie for each family member and you’ll have your movie nights planned for the next few weeks or months to come.
It’s a present and an experience- two for one, and without spending a lot of money!
8. Sweet treats
When in doubt, getting your family candy as their gift is a great idea!
After all, who doesn’t love indulging on sweets during the holiday season? This is a great gift to add to any stocking that you know will be enjoyed.
9. Go old school
Remember the good old days of playing with a yoyo? Or a deck of cards? A ball and jacks? These fun games are making a comeback, and they make for perfect gifts!
Plus, it’ll get your family off of their cell phones, even if just for a few minutes!
10. Relieve their stress
After the holidays it is always stressful heading back to work or school.
Man your family with excellent stress relievers like stress balls and fidget spinners so they are ready to go once the New Year comes around - just make sure you also get one for yourself!
