25 Stocking Stuffers under $20

I don’t know about you, but I did way too much shopping over the weekend. The good news is that I found gifts for almost everyone on my list.

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is opening my stocking on Christmas morning. As a child, I never knew what I would find. There might be an apple or an orange, a big bar of chocolate, and a few little gifts like a dream journal or calculator. Santa always seemed to know what I needed.

If you are playing Santa this year and need a few stocking ideas, here are 25 gifts under $20. You may need one or two things for yourself…

  1. Stocking stuffers were my favorite part of Christmas. My parents usually staid up to the wee hours of the morning wrapping gifts. So when my sister and I got up on Christmas morning they stuffed our stockings with unwrapped gifts to give us something to play with while to catch a few extra minutes of sleep. I need those texting glossed and a car safety hammer, ohhhh I need another satin pillowcase. Thanks for the great list Ashley. Hope you are doing well.

  2. I love stocking stuffers! Each year we do a pretty fun exchange with my in-laws, we find fun goodies for each other and I love it! There are some great suggestions in this list!!

  3. I remember getting little treasures in my stocking and how happy we were getting an orange and an annual book and toys.
    You have shared some great ideas, thank you

  4. I laughed aloud at your opening sentence there but that was me too- shopped too much but got most people’s gifts. This is a great set of ideas for stocking stuffers.

    I’m impressed and surprised that a movie pass like that exists!

    Also- yes, Babylit are fun books. We’ve gotten a number of them for our baby. My favorite so far has been the one that is for The Jungle Book.

  5. These are great gift ideas! We have the stocking tradition here too, I’m looking forward to the boys opening them on Christmas morning, I had fun shopping for them last week 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely week! I’m getting excited it will be December this weekend! We are going to put up our tree then.

  6. I love this list! Stockings were always my favorite as a kid as well, and so much fun as adults. 😉 These are great ideas. I just love those babylit books, and all of the bookish ideas. 🙂 I also love the piggy paints, I’m all about eco beauty products, especially when geared toward kiddos! 🙂 XO – Alexandra
