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. On sale for $16!
2. The sweetest 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. $7
5. Trolls Pez Dispensers. The it candy for the it movie (these are selling out all over so grab them while you can.) $7
6. LifeStraw Personal Water Filter, perfect for the outdoorsman! $17
7. Twenty no-crease hair ties that will extend her hair life and are so cute, too. $7

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

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
