I have gotten a lot of requests for stocking stuffers and cheaper gifts so here you go! This post honestly took HOURS so I hope you like. Click on the photos in the image below or there are carousels at the bottom of this post with more ideas!
To shop all of the items on one page, go here! Let me know if you like it and hope this helps you out. That is, if you’re like me and still not done Christmas shopping. Whoops.
Quick note that was brought to my attention as well…be careful saying “stocking stuffers” around little ears because they still believe that Santa is stuffing those stockings and we don’t want to kill the magic any earlier than we may have to! 🙂 Okay, back to shopping!
Shop All Stocking Stuffers!
For College Kids
For all the parents of college kids who have no idea what to get them, especially in their stockings, I suggest gift cards, phone chargers of all kinds, coffee/caffeine and other little necessities. Also, if you can get your hands on the All Birds Wool Runners, any kid (boy or girl, I have two pairs) will be obsessed!
For the Young Adult
For the High School Kids
Maybe your son or daughter is in a serious relationship and you need help finding their boy/girlfriend a gift? I love the mini mirror they can put in their purse and the makeup brush cleaner! I’m a huge fan of the hair towel as well as the face mask options. A good night of pampering is good for anyone. A soft blanket or new earrings are always an easy win as well. For the boys? I would go for the speakers, cool socks, gift cards, dart board or a cool jersey/shirt from a favorite team.
It’s December!! Gift giving season is literally upon us. I was asked to put a post of gifts under $25 together last week and I worked hard to find a ton of options for those of you looking for cute, easy and affordable gifts for everyone in your life. Hope this helps you out! Honestly, I think I rounded up all the options on the internet. Good luck.
The graphic above is all clickable! I focused on home and beauty gifts for this one. And everything is under $25! I would personally love getting any of this stuff from a friend, colleague or in my stocking.
Below, I have broken down the gift ideas into categories. Everything is still under $25, though! Lots of fun Amazon and Etsy finds!
Stabilo Pens – I use these for journaling and highlighting in all my books. I am seriously obsessed with them and whoever you buy them for will love them, promise!
Felt tip pens – Seriously, who doesn’t love these pens? We fight over them when we get a new pack at the office haha
Gift card to anywhere – I personally like Starbucks, CFA, Walmart, Amazon, Sonic, Chipotle or about 100 other options. But unique ones are Netflix, airline gift cards, gas card, liquor store, iTunes or Spotify
Books – this is a pretty broad gift and I say you have to know a person before being able to buy them just ANY book. But, I like fun and funny books, encouraging books and books to teach me something new. Some of my faves:
Impressions Vanity Mirror – this is SUCH a steal! There is not even an affiliate link for it but I don’t care because friends share these things with each other. I already have one very similar that I love, but this one is actually way better and on sale for $39!
Joggers – FAVE joggers. I get an XS (and I’d usually get a small). I have them in all 3 colors and wear them on repeat
Pajama Pants – these are the PJ pants Syd and I chose for Christmas this year! I love a good buffalo plaid!
Parka – I have said it before and I will say it again. Eddie Bauer jackets are the REAL deal
Google Home Mini – if you buy from Walmart today, they will give you up to a $25 gift card (not entirely clear on this deal so good luck haha). I had my eye on the Google home or Echo this weekend so this was the perfect deal for me!
Below, you will see that I have broken it out by product category! Hope this helps a little bit as it took quite some time to find all of these things for you. *NOTE: Adding more as the night goes on!*
‘Tis the season for parties, dinners, and gatherings! I always have the hardest time thinking of a small gift for a hostess and usually end up just taking wine (I know I’m not alone here). I mean, I know they are thankful and it’s really the thought that matters, but still, it’s fun to get a little more creative and thoughtful!
So I rounded up some ideas (for myself) and all of you as we embark on this busy season. May the odds be ever in your favor.
What To Take as a Hostess Gift
All items clickable in the graphic
1. Dog Gift
You. Guys. I saw someone else mention this idea and I’m obsessed. Let it be known, as soon as I’m adult enough to host anything, I will give a golden egg to anyone who brings a gift for Junie. Really though, during a party, most people put their pups outside or in their crates and some may feel bad, (lol me) so what could be better than showing up with a toy, cute dog bowls or a jar of treats?! I would be only half as ecstatic as Junie and then she’d be your new bestie!
This is an easy go-to for a hostess gift. Personally, I would go for a seasonal scent or something not too crazy. And tbh, I’d probably get it from bath and body works because that is where ALL of my candles are from.
It would probably be proper to show up with a bottle of wine if you bring glasses, but maybe not? I wouldn’t be upset if someone showed up with just glasses, especially ones that are this cute! Think how cute they would look on a festive bar cart #goals.
I am a sucker for a fun cheeseboard or cutting board and these are super affordable, semi-personalized and I don’t think a cuter one exists. Honestly, anyone would be pumped to receive this, amiright?!
Personally, I call these oven towels… Why, do you ask? Because where do they hang? On the oven. Strictly for looks. Don’t dare clean with them or wipe your hands on them unless you want to be smacked by the hostess (or your mom). All that aside, I love a fun seasonal towel oven towel to spruce things up!
Not that I have hosted anything at my own house ever before, but I imagine if I did, it would be really stressful. And after all the guests go home, you’d want to chill out and pamper yourself. I think a cute little gift basket with DIY spa night accessories would be such a cute and thoughtful idea. Especially if you know that the hostess loves a good bubble bath!
These need no introduction. They are adorable and I need 40 of them. So does you, your mom, your Aunt Shirley and your friend Carol who always wants to host dinner parties. *My make-believe friends and family are obvious mid 40s*
If there is one thing I recommend over and over again to everyone, it is getting a heated throw blanket. This one is trendy, SO WARM and only $30. Nothing is better than waking up, drinking your coffee, doing some reading while sitting snuggled under a warm blanket. Spoiler, if you’re on my Christmas list, this may be your gift lol.
What a practical, cute and affordable gift?! I went ahead and ordered these because I realized I only have an old ugly potholder and I had to take a dish somewhere recently and I was so embarrassed. NOT AGAIN, FELICIA. Well, in 3-5 business days, not again.
So, cheers to you this holiday season in all your hostess and party attending endeavors. I hope you go ahead and stock up on a few of these cute ideas so you will stay prepared. Or you can be like me, wait until the last minute and get a bottle of wine every time. Can’t win em all.
Hey everyone! Hope you all had a VERY Merry Christmas with friends, family and loved ones! This year was the first year in my life I have had Christmas at my actual house because we have always had it at my Grandparents. This year we decided to change it up a little bit and it was great. Although, my Grandpa passed away this past summer, Grandmama came down to Stuttgart and stayed with us, so that was really nice! Anyway, I got way too much stuff and I am so thankful. I got a new camera that I can’t wait to share with you guys too! But until then, I wanted to share the rest of the photos that Syd and I took together to give Mom and Dad for Christmas! Mom was so happy when she got them yesterday and loves them to death. Thanks so much to the talented Delyn for getting our good sides.
Saw this on Instagram and couldn’t NOT buy it. Seriously. Plus it is super soft and they donate to dog shelters and stuff. All of their sweatshirts are $10 off right now, so I highly suggest this. I mean look how stoked I look in this. Side note, Delyn and I were so cold during these photos and I am pretty sure my hair was in the way so my shirt looked like it said “ogs before dudes” 😂 so we were getting a good laugh out of that!
