15 Last-Minute Stocking Stuffers, Because Santa's Got A Long List


I've always loved opening my holiday stocking — yes, even as I approach my mid-30s. Something about all of the tiny gifts just completely delights me. And this year, my 2-year-old daughter Claire is finally starting to understand all of the holiday shenanigans, so I am excited to get her take on the tradition. Of course, I do understand that not everyone is feeling the stocking love like I do — or is simply pressed for time — and may need some ideas for last-minute stocking stuffers. Well, if that's the case for you, don't worry. I've got you covered with 15 pretty fantastic small gifts if I do say so myself.

Below you'll find stocking stuffer options ranging from beauty products to small toys to a t-shirt that helps you beckon for another slice of pizza. The best part? Many of them clock in under $5. I am personally planning to snag the cozy wine socks for my BFF and Unicorn Dreamer Sugar Scrub for my sister who loves all things that glitter. And don't be surprised if you see Claire and I out and about with matching zoo animals nail decals.

They're kind of hard to pass up.

1. DIY Unicorn Stuffed Animal Kit


Snag this DIY Unicorn Stuffed Animal Kit ($20, Etsy) for a kiddo in your life and they can create their own enchanting felt unicorn. Each kit comes with everything they need, including a sewing pattern, felt sheets, yarn, doll eyes, and thread.

Food and drinks with cute little faces? It's no wonder kids love the Shopkins Season 6 Chef Club Two-Pack (reg. $2, Target). Pick one up for your little one's stocking.

3. Wet N Wild Wild Shine Nail Color


There hasn't been a holiday season where my dad doesn't pick up a fun nail polish for my mom's stocking. (He's pretty cool like that.) Choose from several assorted colors of Wet N Wild Wild Shine Nail Color ($2, Walmart) for a fun stocking stuffer.
