Every year it’s the same struggle: the Christmas shopping! While some love any excuse to spend money and shop, for others it’s manly stress and trouble. And the socking stuffers tend to be one of the most difficult to shop for. Especially if you want to stay in a budget!
But while I’m usually in the group who loves to shop, I must admit that staying within my budget is a difficult task for me while Christmas shopping. And what’s even more difficult, it’s finding fun and inexpensive gifts for all the men in my family!
And even though I don’t have a real mantel, and even though Christmas shopping on a budget is rather a challenge to say the least, I do love hanging the stockings for my daughters to see! Because hanging stockings just makes Christmas more magical, don’t you think?
That’s why I have partnered with my favorite go-to store Giant Tiger to bring you this no-stress shopping guide for stocking stuffers for entire family! Because I simply love it when I can find all that I need, for everyone on my list, in one place and all on a budget! Including cute monogrammed stockings!
So I have come up with this simple recipe for a perfect stocking:
1. Something practical
2. Something to eat
3. Something fun and/or to play with
And so while following this simple recipe I have easily found stuffers for everyone on my list:
Stocking stuffers for kids:
And my best finds:
Both of my daughters love little dolls, plushies and of course sweets. So you can imagine my excitement when I found this set of little dollies for only 8$! Also, when I think about something practical for kids, I always think about a game or a craft supply that they can use for months. Like crayons or playing cards. Oh and of course a movie for these long winter evenings ( for less than 7$!)
Stocking stuffers for her and for him:
My best finds:
While shopping for stocking stuffers for her, I always try to think about the little life pleasures, because let’s face it, most of us don’t really have time to slow down and relax! So finding little gifts that can help with that, is definitely my goal! So a hair mask, good lip balm set, some lovely chocolates, and pretty warm socks are my choice. And my best find: this gorgeous wallet for 10$!
And I even managed to find great stocking stuffers for him: practical NHL socks, and earphones, some good quality chocolates and a fun Star Wars mug! Now that was easy!
So this year I’m hanging my stocking stuffers a bit early, since my shopping is all done!
I hope this post inspired you to stress less this holiday season, and I hope that my stocking stuffers tips and ideas might have help you get your shopping done faster too!
