During the Christmas season, stockings are the perfect way to give little gifts to the ones you love while showing you still really know them! Every year my mom usually gives us fuzzy socks, a gift card, and other cute little trinkets! Stockings are my favorite part of opening gifts and we always do them first!
This gave me the inspiration to make a Holiday Gift Guide – Stocking Stuffers Under $20 post! I rounded up some of my favorite little gifts under $20 that women of all shapes and sizes could love! Anyone from the age of 10 to 60 can probably find a gift on this list. I will link all the items in my cover photo below and then add a TON of other items on top of that underneath just like in my other gift guides!
Stocking Stuffers Under $20
Keep in mind that a lot of these items are PERFECT white elephant/office gift exchange/secret Santa gifts because most budgets are like $20 (unless you’re Michael Scott that is). So consider this a Stocking Stuffer + Little Gifts for the Season Gift Guide.
Scarves: Scarves are always a must-have winter item! They’re the only thing standing between you and the frigid temps outside. I personally love blanket scarves the most because they can sometimes even double as real blankets! I love snuggling up with them in my bed while watching movies. They’re also the PERFECT stocking stuffer because they’re affordable and can get super small in size! Shop some cute ones in all styles and patterns below:
Earrings: I think earrings are an adorable option for stocking stuffers. I know when I was younger my mom used to put the HUGE packs of earrings from Claire’s in our stockings. Consider this an upgrade (LOL). I did include a set in here though, but from Target. I also chose some BaubleBar earrings that were on sale as well! You have a bunch of stocking stuffer earrings to check out that I’m sure you’ll love below:
Mugs: I guess there are just some things I’ll ALWAYS have on my gift guides. Mugs is definitely one of those items. I love them so so much and they’re just perfect! My mom used to get mugs and put gift cards in them or little nail polishes and it’s just so perfect for anyone on your list! Whether she’s a gal on the go, or loves sitting inside with a nice book, these are sure to make her happy! I rounded up some adorable options for you to shop from below:
Makeup: Now, personally, I’m not much of a makeup girl. That being said, if you have a friend that is, these are some awesome choices! When I’m not an expert on a topic, I do my research. These are some of the hottest makeup items of the season while still being affordable! I especially love the round brush set that I found from Target that’s under $10! I seriously couldn’t believe it. Shop all the great items I found below:
Beauty Products: I felt like I should separate my beauty and makeup items because I found some awesome ones for both. I personally am obsessed with Soap & Glory products. I partnered with them a while back and have purchased their hand lotion since because it’s THAT GOOD. I also threw in some bath bombs as well as a cute bottle of dry shampoo (because right now I’m on day 4 without washing my hair and live by that stuff). Shop my top beauty stocking stuffers below:
Candles: You’re probably like “HERE WE GO AGAIN. Girl loves her candles.” YES. Yes I do. I can’t live without them. I use them all the time especially around the holidays! My favorite scents are ones with lots of cloves and cinnamon. These are an awesome stocking stuffer because you can literally find them in any size and scent. I found some really awesome ones for under $20 and I hope you enjoy my choices as well! Shop them all below:
Books: My family has a ton of nerds (which isn’t a bad thing). I have gotten a book in my stocking or as a gift almost every year of my life because they’re a way to learn more and to discover new things. The ones I linked below are some best sellers of the year as well as some of my personal favs! A few are on my reading list right now (*cough* Becoming by Michelle Obama *cough*) and I am hoping to get through them this December. Shop all my top picks below:
Sleep Masks: Okay ya’ll, so a month ago I hadn’t slept well for like 5 weeks and I could NOT understand why. Well, I put on my sleep mask that I hadn’t worn in a while and BOOM. I slept like a log. It was insane. If you have any friends or family who also can’t sleep without one, this is an awesome gift idea! I use a $5 faux fur and faux silk one from Target that I got last holiday season and it’s lasted me this long. Shop some chic sleep mask options below:
Small Clutches/Crossbody Bags: Have a friend that likes to go out often or that just loves pretty things? Give her a cute little clutch or crossbody in her stocking! When I was younger I loved carrying stuff with me (god knows why because I was putting myself through pain before I needed to) and these were the perfect size! If you have a daughter who loves to carry one around, this is a great option for her as well. Shop some of the ones I found below:
I hope you guys enjoyed this Holiday Gift Guide – Stocking Stuffers Under $20! As I said up top, it’s also a great idea for any other gifts you need for white elephant/secret santa/an office party as well! I also have a BUNCH of other gift guides that are under $50 (except one for moms which is under $100) below that you can also check out too!
