If you’re like me, stocking stuffers are the hardest thing to come up with. I mean, how did Santa do it all those years?! He always knew just what I needed and just what I wanted.
For some reason, Santa Baby has stopped coming to my house. Now it’s up to me to fill the stockings.
Of course there are your go-tos of candy canes and iTunes gift cards, but beyond that, it can be hard to think of something that’s not so big that you should just put it under the tree or not so small that it’s basically junk or clutter.
I made a list of 10 items that are practical, fun, and useful!
The great thing about phone cases is that basically everyone is always in need of a new one, but most people don’t want to drop the cash on one. This one is dual-purpose! Holding all your cards and protecting your selfie machine—what could be better? It comes in practical and fun colors alike!
No more throwing your phone into a red solo cup to amplify the volume! The outdoorsmen, the college students, and the music lovers will all appreciate a portable speaker for all kinds of activities!
If you’re anything like me and my family, you lose your sunglasses once or twice a year. Grab a quality pair that won’t break—but also aren’t too expensive—to add to the stockings this year!
It’s the end of the year, so most of the socks you bought in 2017 either have holes or were eaten by the washer. While basic socks are a necessity, who says you can’t kick it up a notch and give socks with some flare?
We all know at least one person (maybe it’s even you) who’s always asking to borrow a charger or that you can’t manage to get ahold of because their phone is always dead. This stocking stuffer is for them. No more excuses!
Like cologne or candles, it’s always nice to get something that smells good. While most people probably don’t want to spend money on fancy soap, it’s great to have for a special occasion or for someone who loves bubble baths!
Even someone who isn’t a regular tea or coffee drinker will love a glass travel mug they can use on occasion (or daily). Who doesn’t love a hot cocoa or cider to start their day?
If you love a book lover, you probably know that dog-earing a page to mark your spot is a mortal sin. Get your book lover a fancy, personalized leather bookmark! It’ll probably be their favorite gift of the year—too bad Santa gets all the credit.
Enamel pins are a novelty item. If you’re stuffing the stocking of a hipster or someone with a quirky sense of style, they’ll love a set of enamel pins to add to their cool denim jacket, suit, or bag.
These cute little cocktail kits are great for someone who travels a lot or needs a stiff one when they make it to the top of the mountain on their hike. If you have a champagne lover in your life, SugarFina even makes an adorable champagne option with tasty gummy bears!
