As we inch towards the final stretch of holiday season 2021, I’m still picking up a few extra gifts for last-minute holiday parties, stocking stuffers, gift exchanges, or unexpected guests!
If you guys follow me on Instagram, you’ve definitely seen me share quite a few gift ideas that you can buy for your friends, family — or even yourself! But a lot of those gifts definitely come in bigger sizes, and heftier price tags to match. I don’t know if you guys are still holiday shopping with Christmas less than a week away, but this upcoming week is FULL of smaller get-togethers between me and my girlfriends for dinners, holiday parties and white elephant gift exchanges. So even though I’m juuuust about done with my Christmas shopping, I’ve still been out on the town picking up some smaller gifts for my friends too! If you’re still holiday shopping, here are some affordable stocking stuffers you’ll be sure to love:
gifts for home
You see them on every list, and you may have already even received a couple this holiday season: candles. They’re an easy and lovely gift, especially it gives the recipient an opportunity to test out new scents and fragrances in their home — such an easy way to refresh your space! So since candles are a little TOO obvious, let’s check out other gift ideas that are less expected but equally useful!
self-care & beauty
Buying beauty and self-care products for others can be tricky, so I like to choose gifts that can be used regardless of skin type. Take the guessing out of color matching and shade options by opting for items that any recipient can include in their routine.
for the pet lover
2020 and 2021 were two years with some of the highest pet adoption rates. Everyone loves their fur babies. These are no brainers for the pet parents in your life. And yes – even potty products can be chic, too.
winter fashion accessories
Like beauty, people’s style is quite personal — but some products just make sense, no matter what your personal style is like! When I’m picking out clothing and accessories to have on hand as gifts with no one particular in mind, I like to go for neutral options that can be useful to almost anyone. These neutral winter must-haves always do the trick!
