Every year on Christmas morning, my parents and I open our gifts in our stockings first. It’s one of my favorite parts of our gift exchange tradition because my Gammie handmade our stockings years and years ago, and I love being reminded of her on her favorite holiday. We typically fill each stocking with gifts ranging from small tokens and gift cards to favorite candy. But stocking stuffers can just be difficult because you’re likely searching for meaningful gifts that are a.) a bit less expensive and b.) small or small enough to roll/fold into a stocking.

Because I had a bit too much fun creating last week’s under $50 gift guide, I knew almost immediately that I wanted to curate another one. So, I present to you my $25 and under stocking stuffer gift guide for girls! PS: These are equally as great to give to your girlfriends who likely don’t have a stocking under your tree. ; )

You can never go wrong with gift cards to iTunes, Starbucks, or Amazon (especially for Kindle owners). EOS lip balm is seriously the best ever, and the Essie nail polish is a great pop of color for a winter vacation to someplace warm or to just get you through the cold season. Bow belt? Love it. Someone please purchase it for someone on your list. And then there’s the chocolate covered cherries. Guys, these have been on my list every year for as long as I can remember because they are melt in your mouth good. Oh, and the Rifle Paper Co. notebooks! I love all things Rifle Paper Co., and I’ve learned it’s so helpful to carry a small notebook in your bag for when an idea or a complete list strikes. Naturally, it has to be pretty.
What are your favorite stocking stuffer ideas?
