Some of the best gifts come in the smallest packages, but finding items that are cost effective, useful, and actually fit into a stocking can be challenging. That’s why we’ve made a list of the best stocking stuffers that are perfect for any age and budget. These gifts can also be included in your own stocking, because, after all, it’s “the season to be merry” and treat yourself too, right?
Idea #1: Cozy Drink Accessories
Any tea lovers on your list? If so, we have the perfect gift idea for you. The cute Umbra Buddy Tea Infuser from Rona for $21.99 helps perfectly infuse loose leaf tea. It’s convenient design keeps it secure on the mug, allowing them to sip away in comfort. In case they get distracted, the Donut USB mug warmer from Bed, Bath & Beyond for just $13.99 will allow them to come back to a nice, hot beverage.
Idea #2: Small and Sweet Christmas Treats
Whether it’s an extra sugar rush you’re after or just a delicious treat for the kids, chocolate and candy are always a crowd favourite. The great thing about this stocking stuffer is that you can go as fancy (Lindt Connaisseurs Finesse for $24.99), or as simple (Cherry Candy Canes from Real Canadian Superstore for $2.98), as you like. We also know that every home has at least one person who is concerned about knocking off the holiday weight after, so a healthier option like Organic dark chocolate from Ambrosia Natural Foods for $2.99 is also a great option.
Idea #3: Sparkly Decor
Another great and affordable gift to slip into a stocking is a beautiful Christmas tree ornament or lights. A personalized version, like the Life at Home Deluxe Photo Frame ornament for $7 is the extra magical touch you need. There’s even a Christmas Craft Kit from Michaels for $7.19 for kids to create their own
Idea #4: Holiday Tunes
For those hard-to-buy-for people on your list, you can’t go wrong with the gift of music. The Nanopods truly wireless headphones for $29.99 are perfect for people who like to listen to their Christmas classics (cue the Michael Buble) on-the-go. For those who want to practice their carol singing in a more private setting (yes, of course we mean the shower), a waterproof shower speaker is your best bet. The Indigo wireless shower speaker for $15 makes for the perfect stocking stuffer on a budget.
Idea #5: The Best Christmas Selfie
Whether your giftee wants to capture THE Christmas selfie or record themselves mastering a Tik Tok dance move, having the best lighting is a must. The LED ring light and phone holder from Best Buy for $29.99 can brighten up any self-portrait taken at night or in a dark room with its adjustable brightness.
Idea #6: Wintery Aromas
The Glade Holiday scented candles from Walmart for $12 will give your home the festive wintery smells of apple pie, berries, pine, and candy cane. They’re great for every room in the house, and mixing and matching different scents is always encouraged. If your giftee already owns or is getting an oil diffuser, toss in this HoMedics Holiday Essential Oils 3-Pack from Shoppers Drug Mart for $29.99 in their stocking to help set the festive mood.
