You guys, let’s talk about stocking stuffers, the most underrated part of Christmas gifting. You know what they say…good things come in small packages, 😉 and that’s reason enough for me to fill these things to the dang brim! Think about allllll the goodies—from gift cards to accessories (maybe even a Boost Shot or two for my fitness friends)—you can fit inside them. Stocking stuffers are basically the cherry on top, and who doesn’t love a great cherry to polish off an ice cream sundae?

Hopefully, you’re not experiencing holiday gift hangover yet because I’m doing a bonus round of Heidi’s Holiday Giveaway: Stocking Stuffer Edition. Scroll to the bottom for details!

Heidi’s Holiday Decor:

Pottery Barn Embroidered StockingsRed and Gold Ribbon (love this candy stripe ribbon set), Green and Black Plaid Ribbon,  Wrapping Paper (also love this winter scene and this rustic holiday set), faux snowy pine greenery for wrapping, and gift tags (love this unicorn one for Ruby). 

Top favorite gifts to stuff that stocking

It’s easy to fall into gift wrapping exhaustion, especially if you save it all for Christmas Eve. But you guys, don’t skimp on the stockings! They are so much fun, and here’s the real treat: Stocking stuffers require less wrapping and less cleanup. How’s that for a holiday treat that only Mrs. Claus will truly appreciate? So, stuff those babies to the brim because I’m sharing my favorite gifts to stuff your stockings!

Cozy Stocking Stuffers

Heidi’s Coziest Stocking Stuffers:

Cents of Style ThermalCents of Style Socks (under $15), Shower Steamers (under $25) Capri Blue mini candles, DAVIDsTEA Dessert Loose Leaf Tea Gift Set,  Lou & Gray Fleece Lined Legggings (50% off)

The gift of comfort and joy takes on a whole new meaning in 2020. There’s nothing better than snuggling up at the end of the day, and honestly, who doesn’t love a nice comfy pair of socks to make it that much better? Bonus points if they’re fuzzy on the inside. If cozy socks aren’t at the top of your gift list, then shower steamers might be the next best thing. Shower steamers are like bath bombs, but they’re made for those nice hot showers…you know the ones you take when you don’t have tons of time to relax in a warm bath. Plus, they’re under $25. While we’re working on turning our houses into mini spas, I also love gifting mini candles, DAVIDsTEA Dessert Loose Leaf Tea Gift Set, and these amazing fleece lined leggings (50% off).

Stocking Stuffers for Beauty Lovers

Heidi’s Stocking Stuffer Beauty Favorites:

 Athia Kisser Kit (50% off site wide), Kristin Ess Temporary Hair Tint (under $15) Jade Roller 

If mommy was caught kissing Santa Claus, it’s probably because she had really soft lips, right? During the winter months, or if you live in a dry climate, the Athia Kisser Kit is an absolute must. I mean, no one likes to have dry chapped lips! It’s why I say never skip the lip when it comes to your skincare routine. Plus, can you ever really have too many lip products? No way. No how.

And while you’re taking a couple of minutes of beauty time, this Jade Roller is perfect. It has a cool touch that’s really relaxing. It also helps brighten your complexion, reduces puffiness, and promotes blood flow. Bonus points if you get one that has a mini gua sha sculpting tool (like this one). This whole stocking is a one-two punch when it comes to a) giving someone the gift of some alone time for their beauty regime and b) making them look and feel amazing. If you have a beauty lover on your list, or maybe someone who just needs five seconds away from everything, this stocking will surely hit the nail on the head. And just because it’s fun and so many people have asked about it, stuffing your stockings with hair products like Kristin Ess Temporary Hair Tint or Coil Pack Hair Ties (love this 20 piece set for under $10) is another great stocking stuffer.

Stocking Stuffer Fitness Favorites

Heidi’s Stocking Stuffer Fitness Favorites:

Total Transform Bundle (normally $479.80 NOW $189.99), Resistance Band (also love this set on Etsy), Motivational Water Bottle

The best part about stocking stuffers? Sooo many fitness gifts and gadgets are small: resistance bands, Boost Shot, and even water bottles.

You guys, I’ll let you in on a little secret: If all else fails, and you find yourself in a pinch, you know the days when even Amazon prime ship is slower than Rudolph on a foggy night and the kids are actively anticipating the pitter-patter of reindeer on the roof, gift cards will be your best friend. You can print them or get digital versions and hand write a card (or use this cute printable). The top digital gift cards in my house are for Game Stop, Google Play, and Amazon. Oh, and this Mrs. Claus is fueled by Starbucks, so you know that’s on my gift list.

Bonus: During this time, many of your local shops can use our support. Lots of local stores will make up gift cards for you if you ask them. It’s a great way to make future plans to visit your local spots.
