If you’re new around here, you might not know that my family does a “Secret Santa”-type gift exchange. We use the website DrawNames.com to input all five of our names, and then we’re randomly sent a single person’s name (and wish list) to shop for. Our budget is capped at $100 and we only give and receive one gift each, which makes Christmas so much less stressful and it’s no longer a financial burden either. We started doing this about four or five years ago, and it’s something we all look forward to. It’s also really fun to try to keep the secret up until Christmas Day. Couldn’t recommend this method more!
One area where my sister and I tend to go a little hog wild, though, is where stockings are concerned. We have yet to set a limit on stockings, and anybody can buy for anybody. Kat and I take the job very seriously. She and I have individual spreadsheets that we fill all throughout the year with gift ideas that someone might happen to mention in passing. It’s always such a blast seeing the surprised looks on people’s faces, and we don’t care that the stockings end up overflowing or cost more than the one big gift we each get. Keep scrolling for a list of stocking stuffers that may or may not be on our lists for Christmas 2020.
Christmas Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers
1. Essential Oil Blend: The perfect spicy, woodsy blend to diffuse all throughout the holiday season.
2. Pillow Covers: These fold up tight so they fit easily inside a stocking.
3. Wool Dryer Balls: We switched from dryer sheets to wool dryer balls years ago, and haven’t looked back.
4. Amazon Fire TV Stick: This turns any television into a smart TV!
5. Reusable Glass Tumbler: A water bottle fancy enough for Christmas morning.
6. Pizza Cutter: I love the minty color of the handle.
7. Gold Chip Clips: I’m pretty sure you can never have enough chip clips.
8. Dog Collar: For the dog-lover in your life!
9. Rechargeable Batteries: Again, can you ever really have too many batteries?! I appreciate that these are reusable.
10. Plant Moisture Meter: I treated myself to this gift months ago, and love it. It’s perfect for indoor gardeners.
11. Gold Strainers: The prettiest strainer I ever did see! I use these all the time in our kitchen after juicing a lemon or for rinsing quinoa.
12. Modern Playing Cards: My sister asked for these for Christmas. She’ll just have to wait and see if they show up in her stocking this year!
