Stocking Stuffer Ideas + A Giveaway

Stocking Stuffer Ideas + A Giveaway - Let’s take a vote… who has finished their holiday shopping? I’m not going to lie… I haven’t even started. I do this every single year. I’m definitely not an early bird when it comes to gifts. If you’re already finished, major props to you! Every year the giant gift guide gets me so excited and then I procrastinate. I typically end up with lots of small gifts, so I thought a stocking stuffer roundup / under $30 roundup would be fitting to share… especially now that we’re well into the first week of December. Click through for my favorite stocking stuffers, little gifts, and enter to win a stocking filled to the brim with goodies!

01: wine wipes // 02: ‘accio keys’ keychain // 03: party game // 04: greeting card set // 05: striped phone case // 06: musk scented candle // 07: phone charger // 08: coffee sampler // 09: hairbrush // 10: beanie // 11: USB outlet converter // 12: coffee clip & scoop // 13: la florentina soaps // 14: charades // 15: le labo fragrances // 16: leather scented candle // 17: matcha green tea soap // 18: hidden agenda journal // 19: tiny terrarium // 20: merry christmas candle tin // 21: orange blossom soap // 22: mini candle // 23: gloves // 24: keychain tassel // 25: bluetooth shower speaker

I’m not going to lie… I bought a handful of items from the above roundup. Some as gifts, and some to keep for myself. I don’t want to give any gifts away, but I got the journal (#18), coffee clip / scoop (#12), shower speaker (#25), USB converter (#11), and party game (#3) for myself.

I hope you guys have noticed I’ve been trying to do more giveaways this holiday season. I feel so grateful for you (even more so after the Domino news), and I hope it shows! I really love giving back and this is the perfect time of year to do so. Enter to win the stocking and all the goodies in it- everything in the image below…including the fun velvet stocking (shown in the intro).

    I always put in some new skin care products to try out! This year I’ve already filled my husbands stocking with handmade goat soap (Tabasco and musk scent – smells so good!), handmade foaming face scrub, some croakies for his sunglasses, a new rubber wedding ring (he always breaks his), socks, and hopefully I’ll find another item or two for him. I always think of stocking stuffers as where the place to put the necessities like tweezers, chapt stick, etc.

    My favorite stocking stuffer I ever received was a card wallet – so perfect when you just need to run a few quick errands without having to lug around a purse. It’s even better now that I’ve had my daughter and all I have to do is swap the card wallet back and forth between the diaper bag and the purse I use for work!

    My husband is hilarious and takes note of all the random things I lose throughout the year (like my iPhone charger or my favorite lip stain that is eternally sucked in to the black hole that is my purse) and he makes sure to always fill my stocking with their replacements. Super helpful and cracks me up every time!

    The first Christmas my husband and I had together he filled my stocking with sour patch kids. I was a little confused but went along with it. A few hours later I asked him why all of the sour patch kids? He said “Aren’t they your favorite candy?” I replied “Do you know me at all?” Ha ha. Every year since he always sneaks in a pack of sour patch kids for kicks. Definitely a fun memory! :)
