Holiday Gift Ideas: Stocking Stuffers

felted garland

To kick off a week of holiday gift-giving ideas, let's start with stocking stuffers. Even though stocking stuffers are often an afterthought, I think it's fun to think of something small and inexpensive that the person receiving it will actually use and enjoy. So, those are my standards for the gifts below. I'm morally opposed to the silly stocking stuffers that stores put out at this time of year (like jar openers and cheesy desk calendars), so you won't find any of those here!

These Mercury Votive Holders are so pretty. They'd add a little bit of vintage-y glamour to a bedside table or bookshelf.

Aren't mittens so much more cozy than gloves? It feels like you're really committing to being outside for awhile. These colorful Pom Pom Gloves would be fun to throw snowballs in.

I think these Tie Breaker Coins could come in handy for a quite few people on your list. It would be a funny gift for roommates or newlyweds.

This understated Glitter Top Coat is festive for holiday parties, but I like it even more in February when my nails (and, let's face it, the rest of me) could use a pick me up.

It's pretty hard to go wrong with chocolate. I love Chocolove bars, especially the Raspberries in Dark Chocolate and the Almond and Sea Salt.

Bright and colorful Kate Spade coasters are fun and playful for holiday parties (wouldn't they be perfect for a New Year's party?) but they'd also fancy up any party any time of the year.

I know gift certificates are a hotly debated gift giving topic, but I'm wholeheartedly for them. Especially when it's a gift certificate to Pinhole Press, where the recipient can make everything from wine bottle labels to beautifully bound books.

I'm still in the market for more stocking stuffer ideas for this year's 12 Days of Christmas with my roommates, so I'd love to hear your stocking stuffer ideas in the comments!
