20 Stocking Stuffers For Teens & Tweens Under $20, That They'll Actually Like

Growing up, rummaging through my stocking was always more fun than unwrapping my actual Christmas gifts. Maybe it was the variety I liked; it was always a fun assortment of trinkets, candies, and random items that made my parents think of me. I loved the fact that it was never anything on my list, so it was a surprise from top to bottom. Whatever it was, I'm a big fan of stocking stuffers, and these 20 stocking stuffers for teens and tweens under $20 are sure to be crowdpleasers.

Admittedly, stocking stuffers can be hard to shop for. It's a test of your creativity, considering the items from your teen's Christmas list are probably wrapped up and tucked under the tree. I vividly remember one year watching my brother dump out his stocking to discover... peppermints and blue ink pens. My mom, shaking with laughter in the corner of the room, admitted, "I had no idea what to put in yours!" Luckily, my brother's always been incredibly easy-going and low maintenance... but I'm sure a list like this could've helped my mom out.

From tech accessories to beauty products to cozy winter accessories, these are stocking stuffers that will delight on Christmas morning without breaking the bank.
