20 Stocking Stuffer Ideas Under $20

Five Weeks of Giving! Week 5:

That feeling when you are opening the last gift under the tree and you start to feel the magic of opening Christmas gifts begin to fade and you suddenly remember…the stockings! In our family stockings are filled with fun smaller gifts that range from $1.00 - $20.00 and are always the last gifts to be opened and sometimes the most fun.

Below are our favorite stocking stuffers to give to family members of all ages. Most of the gifts below can also be found at your local drug store making them great last-minute gifts as well.  

  1. "Wine All Time" – This hilarious book by Marissa A. Ross is a stocking stuffer that any wine lover will enjoy ($13.50). Books in general are a great stocking stuffer any avid reader would welcome.
  2. Sugarfina Roseacute Gummies – Mom wants to find these in her stocking. Trust us ($10.00).
  3. Pilot Retractable Gel Pens – Everyone is always misplacing their pens. Stuff their stockings with some good ones like these Pilot Gel Pens ($12.00/pk of 12).
  4. Blind Bags – Kiddos love the extra surprise of “blind bags.” Their small size and cost make for perfect stocking stuffers. My kiddos love the “Grossery Gang” ones, but there are tons of options out there ($3.00).
  5. Popsockets – Place these on the back of your phone for an easier grip and phone stand ($10.00).

  8. Detox Dry Shampoo – This mini dry shampoo spray is the perfect stocking stuffer size ($13.00).

  10. Koozies – These fun koozies are a great stocking stuffer for any beer lover ($15.00/pk of 6).
  11. Bicycle Playing Cards – Give these and start an epic game Rumi or teach the younger kiddos how to play “War” ($4.00).
