List: Ten stocking stuffer gift ideas that are all under $15.

I know what you're all thinking.  "This chick has been preaching about being prepared for weeks, and her stockings still aren't stuffed?!".  For shame...

Despite what I've been preaching, I don't usually get my family their stocking stuffers until about this time.  Why?  Because I usually fill them with candies, toothbrushes, and other little knick-knacks that I don't want to lose.  I mean, imagine trying to find that Kinder Egg that you hid God knows where back in August?  No thanks..

Now that you know my reasoning, you can stop judging me and read my gift guide instead.  Here are ten of the ideas I brainstormed while hunting for the perfect gifts under $15 to stuff in my family's stockings this Christmas!

Ten stocking stuffer gift ideas under $15.

1.  Yoocaa Reusable Silicone Straws (link)

Where I live, plastic straws are officially illegal.  I think it's great that they're saving the world, but it really sucks when you order an ice coffee to go.  This very practical stocking stuffer means saving someone's mouth from soggy paper straw bits as they drink their beverage.  Instead, they can whip out their reusable silicone straw that comes with a handy carrying case and a cleaning brush.

Do you hang a stocking for your pets?  We do.  I can't wait to see this bow tie dog collar on my little mini dachshund this Christmas!  Let's hope he feels the same way..

Kids don't want fancy toys these days.  They don't even want Squishees anymore.  Hallelujah!  Instead, they want Pop Its.  For those of you that live under a rock, Pop Its are fidget toys that are basically indestructible bubble wrap.  This is the perfect stocking stuffer for kids because it's trendy, addictive and it's wearable so they don't even have to carry it!  It doesn't get better than that.

Raise your hand if you can't stand wine glass charms.  Extends hand HIGH into the air..  Me either.  They clink around for no reason, hit your face when you lean too far back, and are a nuisance to clean, find, and store.  These wine glass markers eliminate the need for those annoying charms, making them the perfect stocking stuffer for the wine lovers in your family.

My son LOVES these books!  They're activity pads that come with a brush that gets filled with water.  Brush the water onto the pad and watch the colors appear and the activities come to life.  The best part is, when you're done, you let the book dry so that you can do it all over again.

Whether it's in your office or in the car, your phone battery is probably in constant need of a quick boost.  This festive phone charging cable is the perfect stocking stuffer, especially for those that live on the edge with consistently low battery life.

Many people like to hang things on the fridge.  Whether they're reminders, works of art from our babies, or a fun photo collage, there's usually SOMETHING on the fridge.  For me, it's a photo collage hidden on the side of the refrigerator.  Shh, don't tell.  Add to their collection by sticking a personalized round magnet in their stocking!

This stocking stuffer is fun, festive, and will help someone dry the dishes!

These festive boxer briefs look comfortable and really um fill that sack.  My husband's always complaining that I wear his boxers around the house.  Apparently, I should leave his stuff alone.  Well, this would help me oblige.  These boxers would be 100% for him!

This stocking stuffer idea is GENIUS!  So genius in fact, that I think everyone should get an Avocado Keeper in their stocking this year.  I use half an avocado a day when I eat my salad.  How many times does that other half turn black overnight and have to be thrown away?  Too many times.  That's how many!  This would solve that same problem for avocado lovers everywhere.  Did I mention this was genius?

What are your stocking stuffer ideas?


  1. What? I love wine charms! I have little rubber daschunds that wrap around the stem and don’t move. I’m going to get those water books for my grands for their Easter baskets. I’ve never seen them before!

    1. The water books are great! I love Melissa & Doug products. They last forever and have zero electronics. If they don't move then they shouldn't be bad. The ones I have move all around, clink, and touch me as I drink. Annoying!

  2. Wait, whaaaat, you stuff their socks with toothbrushes and straws? How scroogetastic of you.... lol

  3. An avocado keeper is a must have! I don't know what I'd do without mine. They are really great for keeping halves fresh for several days.
