Stocking Stuffers That Don't Suck

Aah, the dreaded Christmas stocking stuffers... often chock-full of cheap knickknacks and useless trinkets. Now that I have officially taken on Santa Claus duties in the home, I was on a mission to find some small (but mighty!) options for everyone in the family. Here are some affordable stocking stuffers that don't suck!

A fan favorite with a viral following, there is a reason the Bomba Socks have such a great reputation. High quality, comfortable, and no slippage for the active human!

Endless, imaginative fun with these little guys! My little ones play with theirs all the time, and are constantly finding new ways to incorporate them into open play.

My husband uses his all year round for the many unexpected needs to poke around the attic or outside at night, when shoveling or plowing the driveway, or during a power outage. It's a great item to have on hand, and you won't realize how glad you are to have it until you do!

It's a classic for a reason! Kids of all ages enjoy the boundless creativity play doh provides, and helps them access their artistic side. Plus it's nontoxic and great for sensory play, too.

I can attest that this is by far the best hand cream I've ever found for working hands! My husband and father-in-law both suffer from cracked hands in the winter and this is the only cream that provides healing and immediate relief. Plus, it's easy to store in a bedside drawer or on-the-go, and doesn't have any foo-foo scents that make them feel any less manly for taking care of their skin!

A durable and reliable power bank, this little guy offers a great power boost to keep your phone running all day long. The brand offers lots of colors to choose from to suit everyone on your list, and real-time battery status updates on the convenient LCD display.

A dream for the busy mom - this illuminating nail concealer is easy to apply (no base or top coat needed), quick drying, and beautiful. Perfect for the time in between salon visits, or for longterm wear without showing chipping easily or damaging your nails with harsh gel or powder polishes. I absolutely swear by this product and use it all the time! (It's literally on my nails right now if you happen to see me out and want to peep it!) Worth every penny.

A longtime trusted brand, Burt's Bees is offering this adorable essentials kit with travel-sized options of their best-selling creams, lotions, and balms. A great idea for many loved ones on your list!

Becoming increasingly popular, every home baker wants to learn to make their own bread! This is a solid sourdough starter, with easy-to-follow instructions included, and organic, non-GMO ingredients. A recipe for a homemade treat the whole family will enjoy!

A unique gift idea for the green thumb of the family, this kit comes with 15 heirloom herbs and gardening favorites. High-quality from USA-sourced small businesses, and great for both indoor and outdoor use.

This 3-pack of mini plant pots and drainage saucers are hilariously labeled, "prickly bitch," "what the fucculent," and "what up succa?" Couple them with a few succulents from your local grocery or gardening store, and you've got the perfectly hysterical plant-lover gift that keeps on giving all year round.

These little shower steamers pack a big punch in the relaxation department! This set comes with 6 tablets infused with essential oils to help wash away the stress of the day and make your home shower feel like a spa.

With 11 color choices and 17 different font options, this is a thoughtful way to give a useful and longlasting gift! Plus, it's self-inking, so no messy pad required. I got one when we moved into our new house, and it's still going three years strong!

This highly rated, LCD drawing tablet makes a fun gift for home and on-the-go! A favorite of parents to entertain kids on long car or plane rides, it's also easy to slip in any bags and provides for open-ended fun.

This kit is so cool!! It comes with a 3D printing pen with display, starter colors, stencil book, project guide, and charger. Great for older kids or creative adults, the use of this product is truly endless! With over 12,000 positive reviews, it is definitely a #1 best-selling product for a reason!

If I come across any other fabulous finds, I'll be sure to add to the above list ASAP - so feel free to check back periodically, or follow me on IG for updates @XtineElise! But hopefully these fun and functional products will set you up with some great new gift ideas for all of the special people in your life... that have made Santa's nice list of course. ;)

Just a reminder that I utilize affiliate links, which means I make a small commission from your purchase (which doesn't affect how much you pay).

This helps this mama keep doing what she loves! TYSM in advance for your support! :-)
