2017 Affordable Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers Under $10
Happy Friday everyone!
I can’t believe it, but we are only 3 short days away from Christmas !! The holidays always seem to sneak up on me each year…I just finished my Christmas shopping yesterday . This post is for those needing last minute ideas on gifts/stocking stuffers that won’t break the bank. It’s important to remember that nice gifts do NOT have to be expensive.
Today, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite stocking stuffers, ALL UNDER $10:
Merry Christmas Mug: If this doesn’t scream Christmas cheer, than I don’t know what does! I actually bought this mug from Target the other day, and absolutely LOVE it . This may be a weird thing to say…but the mug has the perfect weight where it just feels so good to hold , not too heavy and not too light. Best part of all, it is UNDER $3 right now !!
Contrast Vase: Do you have a plant mom in your life?? If so, this is the gift for her! I love the two-toned look of the gold and concrete colors. This vase would add such a nice modern flare to any room!
Printed Flannel Pajama Bottoms: Old Navy is killin it this year with their selection of festive pajamas. I love this pair of red flannel pajama bottoms. They are so stinkin’ cute with holiday puppies all over them. I’m actually wearing mine as I type this post Did I mention they are on sale for only $5 too?! [For reference, they run TTS]
Rose Gold Holographic Nail Polish: How perfect is this nail polish for the holiday season? I came across this on Amazon and keep going back to it. Not only does it have a ton of good reviews but the color is oh so pretty. This polish would be perfect to sport for NYE
Philosophy Candy Cane Body Wash: I love all the Philosophy products, especially their body washes. They have some of the most lovely scents that will make anyone feel pampered. This one would make a perfect Christmas gift, as it’s “candy cane” scented…mmm mmm mmm!! It can be used as body wash, or to make a bubble bath. Right now Nordstrom’s Rack is selling it for 50% off, making it the perfect deal. I’m thinking about buying one for myself too
Busy Bee Notebook: Ok so technically this one is over $10 (at $10.77) but it was too sweet not to share. I don’t know about you guys, but I have a slight obsession with cute notebooks. Whenever I’m feeling really motivated and goal oriented I always find myself wanting to buy new cute notebooks to write it. This brand, Eccolo, is often sold at Marshalls/Tj Maxx. However, you can find it on Amazon too. The gold foil bee is such a fun little touch and gives me major J Crew vibes.
Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Scrub: This is a new one for Chapstick, and it works soooo well! Lately this Midwest winter weather has my lips all chapped. This scrub is great because it exfoliates all the dead skin off your lips. Once you are done, apply some of your favorite lip balm and then BOOM! Say goodbye to the days of chapped lips
Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray: I feel like I don’t need to say much about this one….it’s a favorite for so MANY beauty guru’s. And let me tell ya, it sure does the trick. In general, my skin is more on the oily side. However, when I use this spray, my makeup stays put all day long. I also love how this formulation is oil-free.
Emerald Green Ball Drop Earrings: This style of earrings reminds me of the classic Bauble Bar earrings that are all the rave these days. This green color is so fun and would compliment any holiday outfit. However, they have toooons of other colors making the options endless. I’m not one to spend a lot of money on “trendy” pieces, which is why I was so excited to find this affordable pair.
Milk and Honey: This gift is perfect for the bookworm in your life. It’s a collection of poems about love, loss and so much more. I’ve heard really great things about it. I’ve never been one to read many poems but this book sure makes me want to. And not to mention, it doubles as a pretty coffee table book too!
Monogram Old Fashion Glass: I found these glasses the other day while shopping at Target, and how cute are they! I’m always a sucker for anything gold + monogrammed. These glasses would make a perfect gift and they look so classy! Also, for being under $4 they are quite the steal. To me, they look a lot more expensive than they actually are…which is always a win in my book!
Mario Badescu Facial Spray: This is another one of my beauty favorites, that I hadddd to include! This spray is one of those products that I continue to repurchase again and again. I usually keep it in my purse, and will just spray my face a couple times a day. It really does a great job keeping my skin and makeup looking fresh. It also works really well as a makeup setting spray
White Marble Coasters: Last but not least, are these beautiful white marble coasters with gold edges. WOW! These coasters are so so pretty and elegant. My mom bought me some similar marble coasters which I loved receiving. In general, coasters aren’t something most people think about buying for others. To me, these beauties would make such a wonderful gift for anyone on your list!
Whelp, that is a wrap! I hope this gift guide gave you some inspiration about affordable stocking stuffers to buy for your friends and family this holiday season. Or if anything, gave you some ideas of gifts you want to ask or buy (#noshame) for yourself! Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year, so you can imagine how excited I am that it is only a few days away. Plus, this one will be extra special because it will not only be my first married Christmas with my husband, but our first Christmas we’ve ever spent together. I plan on enjoying the holiday by drinking waaaaay too much hot chocolate, snuggling by the fire and enjoying quality time with my family.
