Whether you’re hanging up chic, handmade stockings with everyone’s name on them every year, or you have the kind of family who loves to get out of town for a family vaca for the holidays, there’s nothing like a thoughtful stocking stuffer to gift the special people in your life—and no, you don’t need a stocking to gift one.
A good stocking stuffer can make an easy gift to buy your coworkers or neighbors. They’re also the perfect addition to any of the larger gifts you might be getting your loved ones. The best part about stocking stuffers? They’re affordable, making them perfect if you’re on a budget. You can even throw a few together in to a cute basket to make a full gift (perfect for that cousin who’s hard to shop for!).
The gifts below aren’t just fun, thoughtful, and affordable. They also happen to be practical gifts they’ll actually use. How many times have you unwrapped a gift only to know you’ll probably end up re-gifting it.
See below for 60 unique, practical, thoughtful, and budget-friendly (!) gifts to get every single person on your list:
