10 Stocking Stuffers Under $10

When I was a little girl, looking in my stocking was always a highlight of Christmas morning. My younger sister and I would always wake up so early and peek at the presents under the Christmas tree, but we always waited for a reasonable hour to wake up my parents to officially start Christmas. So we loved playing with all of the goodies in our stockings. Usually the stocking surprises fell into one of 3 categories, something to draw or write, something sweet to eat, and something to make me feel beautiful. I still remember the smell of Bonnie Bell Lip Smackers that used to be a stocking favorite.

This year, I’ve curated a list of my top 10 picks for stocking stuffers that loosely fall into the same categories I loved as a young girl and still love today. The best news of all is that the items are all less than $10.

The 6 piece wax sealing kit has everything you'll need to add an elegant touch to your letters, invitations, and gift wrap with a wax seal. I like the variety of three design options, but the Fleur de Lis is my favorite.

Everyone appreciates a pretty leather journal to jot notes, numbers, or other important information.  These notebooks are green with recycled leather and paper.  There's even a discount if you purchase a few notebooks for multiple stockings. 

Even if you're not a seamstress extraordinaire, you surely need straight pins from time to time.  Keep your pins organized in this adorable little container from Cath Kidston

Do you remember Spirograph?  As soon as I saw the Hypotrochoid art set from Uncommon Goods, I thought of the fun activity I used to enjoy. Children and adults of all ages will enjoy this stocking stuffer.

Seed Bombs from Anthropologie are perfect for the budding gardener. You don't need to do anything fancy to plant these seeds; you don't even need to dig a hole. Simply toss them in your garden and reap what you didn't sow! I love using fresh herbs in the kitchen.

Chocolate Covered Animal Crackers are worth every single calorie they contain.  Seriously.  These chocolate treats from Dylan's Candy Bar are sure to delight your favorite sweet tooth. 

Macaroons are the new cupcake!  Pick up some fresh macaroons just before Christmas Day to put in a stocking.  If you're in New York City, you'll surely make a visit to Laduree.

Philosophy has some of the best beauty products I have tried. I love the smell of their Coconut Macaroon Body Butter. Bring a little bit of the tropics to your cold weather celebration.

A Christmas stocking would not be complete without a little bit of pink and green.  The Pink Hearts Mistle-toe Shea Infused Lounge socks from Bath and Body Works leave your skin so soft.

The Butterball Bath Bomb and Soap set from Lush is a perfect stocking stuffer. The light scent pleases almost everyone and is a best seller. I love their bath bombs.  This set is beautifully wrapped and is ready to go!

  1. Stockings are my favorite PART of Christmas! One year I got the keys to a brand new car in my stocking!!! Spoiled rotten. It's always been a very, very special memory. We always put peppermints and grapefruit in our stockings.
