CLJ Gift Guides: 31 Affordable Stocking Stuffers for Everyone!

We have more gift guides for you today! Starting with these stocking ideas and later today, we’ll be sharing gifts for the home cook. Growing up, our stockings usually consisted of an orange in the toe, candy and some fruity shampoo–a luxury to have your own shampoo for a little while in a family of five girls. But since marrying Chris, the stocking game has changed a bit. There are actual bonus presents in there! One year, Chris got me 30 different kinds of chapsticks. Every kind imaginable. They filled my entire stocking and it was one of the best gifts he could have given me. Not only am I always losing my lip balm, but I got to try every kind under the sun.

However, for us, we keep stocking gifts small enough to fit in the stocking (obviously) and inexpensive, too. All are under $30, but most are under $10. So here are 31 stocking stuffer ideas for everyone in the family (we mixed them all together since many of them could work for a variety of people) that meet those requirements:

1. Mobile Lens Kit so they can up their smartphone camera game. Includes fisheye, wide angle and macro lenses, that work in front-facing camera mode, too. $26

2. The sweetest felted friend barrettes. $8

3. A Really Big Windup bug. They’re really big. They windup. And they’re bugs. And fun. $4


4. A cool camera strap for their DSLR. $25

5. Trolls Pez Dispensers. The it candy for the it movie (these are selling out all over so grab them while you can.) $6.99


6. LifeStraw Personal Water Filter, perfect for the outdoorsman! $19


7. Twenty no-crease hair ties that will extend her hair life and are so cute, too. $7


8. Gourmet sea salts, with the best reviews. Set of 6. $21


9. Game of Phones. Hilarious and fun for so many ages. $20


10. The perfect premium tea infuser with over 1400 reviews! $9


11. Key Folding Knife. The most discreet pocket knife that folds into the shape of a key–so they can stop using their actual keys to open things. $6


12. MagnoGrip Magnetic WristbandEmbedded with super strong magnets for holding screws, scissors, and small tools–like an extra hand! $12


13. Tumblers with the funnest straws. $6img46o

14. A satin pillowcase. To keep their skin youthful and hair smooth. $12

18. Shark hand puppet. ‘nough said. $5

21. Sweaters for mugs. Squeal inducing. $15


22. Plaid pom pom beanie for him or her. $7

    I have that tea infuser, and it’s a good one. The holes are small so it works even with smaller looseleaf teas.

    That magnetic wristband would be perfect for my dad! Great ideas!!

    My husband just glanced at my screen and asked why there was a double penis mug. I’m crying with laughter. The rest of these are great, but I can’t unsee that.

      I thought the same thing. ? Too much time changing my boy’s diapers and potty training them.
