Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Under $10.00
Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Under $10.00.
When the holiday season comes, one of the most fun parts about the entire Christmas experience is the Christmas stocking. It doesn’t even matter how old you are! In our family, we give money so that the adult children can buy their own gifts, but we still have a get-together for the traditional revealing of what lies inside of the stockings. There is just something about the Christmas stockings that we can’t seem to let go of.
The items in stockings aren’t supposed to be extravagant and expensive, either. They are just fun and thoughtful items that you think the recipient will enjoy. If you are a good shopper, doing things such as shopping the sales throughout the year and shopping online, you can get plenty of stocking stuffers without spending a small fortune. The following are some stocking stuffer ideas that can be purchased for under ten dollars.
Slippers are a great stocking stuffer, as long as you are using either the very stretchy or the very large stockings. If you are a knitter, you can even knit the little bootie style slippers that will fit into any stocking.
Candy is what typically fills the “foot” portion of the stocking. In keeping with the season, try to make it Christmas themed candy. Of course, we always got a new toothbrush thrown in, too!
Socks are a filler for stockings that will help the recipient stay warm on those cold winter days.
Costume jewelry is appreciated by adolescents. There are earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings, and other items that you can pick up quite inexpensively.
Hair accessories for girls are fun little stocking stuffers, from clips to barrettes to hairties. You can also get brushes or combs and small mirrors.
Trading cards are fun and you can get whole packs of them for very little cost. There is always the chance that there will be a very valuable card held inside. If you are putting together a stocking for someone who is a card collector, this will make a great stocking stuffer.
Gift cards fit nicely inside of stockings and can be for various amounts and to various places.
Art supplies are another idea, especially if you have a creative person that you are making a stocking for. Crayons, colored pencils, markers, glue sticks, paper, and other things like these will be ideal.
Paperback books can be purchased for under ten dollars and are wonderful for the reader in your family.
Cosmetics are perfect stocking stuffers for teen girls that use them. It is always nice to have some new make-up and/or brushes.
Wallets are good for either boys or girls, as are belts, gloves, scarves and other cold weather accessories.
Small accessories for games, playsets, dolls, or even stuffed animals are also good for filling up stockings.
Putting together Christmas stockings doesn’t have to break the bank. There are tons of things that you can purchase to put in which cost less than ten dollars. Go to dollar stores for even more ideas and sometimes, you can even do some of your shopping at second hand stores and find items that are like new, but for a portion of the cost. Don’t forget that giant candy cane sticking out over the top and you’ll have a beautiful Christmas stocking for your loved one, whether child or adult!
