Stocking Stuffers For Adults

Gift ideas for stocking stuffers for adults!

The approaching holidays mean that gift guides start popping up everywhere! These are some of my favorite posts to write since I’m essentially finding fun ideas for myself πŸ™‚ Since it helps to switch up the topics from year to year, I tackled advent calendars last week and am presenting my stocking stuffers for adults ideas today!

My mom still gives my brother and I a stocking filled with little gifts each year. So my list of stocking stuffers for adults includes unique items that men or women will love and are small enough to fit inside a stocking! There are ornaments, mini candles, practical items, and more!

Stocking Stuffers For Adults

Frostbeard Mini Candle 

Virtually every bookish gift guide (including mine!) includes these candles, but I just discovered this year that they come in mini versions for only $6!! | Etsy




Nail Polish Sampler

These mini sets are a great stocking stuffer for women! The shades usually compliment each other and they’re a fun way to try a variety of options without spending a ton. | Target





Christmas Tree Ornament 

I’m an ornament collector so I love finding a new option to add to my tree in my stocking | Amazon






Cold Beer Coat

Go way beyond the traditional cheap beer holder with these awesome beer coats!! I love that they even come with “handles”. | Uncommon Goods




Burts Bees Gift Set

At less than $5, this holiday gift set is a great addition to an adult stocking! Winter time means cold, dry air, so give their lips and hands a little more love! | Target






Whiskey Stones

Keep your drink cold without diluting it! This set of 10 whiskey stones comes in a small pouch that can be kept in the freezer so they’re ready to use whenever you need a drink. | Kohls





Cologne Sampler Pack

Stocking stuffers for men aren’t always easy to find, but this sampler set of cologne is a great option when you don’t know what scent he’ll like! | Target




Unique Face Masks

Whether your family member loves a specific sports team, hobby, or character, you can find a face masks the represents it! These are also a great option for kids! | Etsy





Lottery Tickets 

Jay’s family has a tradition of handing out scratch-offs on Christmas morning and I absolutely love it. While we don’t pull in Powerball level numbers, every $2 or $5 is a major victory!







Cord Organizer

It is a truth universally acknowledged that anything with a cord will get tangled. These simple gifts help keep cords under control at home or on the road. | Etsy




Cozy socks 

I wear my cozy socks virtually 24/7 in the winter months since we only have carpet in the bedrooms. Unfortunately, they tend to get lost over the summer (or more accurately – one gets lost). A fresh pair each Christmas is a welcome gift! | Amazon




Ring holder 

A quirky jewelry holder is a cheap and perfectly sized addition to any woman’s stocking. Here’s a dinosaur one! | Etsy





Salt Blends

Add unique seasoning to food with this adorable collection of stacking salt blends! | Uncommon Goods




Tea Drop Sampler

I love the idea of these tea blends!! No extra tea equipment required. Simply drop these into a cup of hot water and they’ll dissolve into tea! The sampler includes 5 drops each of five different varieties of tea. | Uncommon Goods





Bourbon Lip Balm 

This about as far from girly chapstick as it gets! | Etsy




Smart Plugs 

Control your outlets with your voice or phone! These are compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. | Amazon




Tea or Coffee Sampler 

Not sure what flavors they prefer? You can’t go wrong with a sampler! Plus, if there are varieties they don’t like, they’re great to have in the house for guests. | Amazon





Everyone needs batteries and it’s massively annoying when you can’t find any just as you’re about to settle in for a binge-watching session and your remote won’t work… | Amazon

    These are such great ideas! Scratch-off lotto tickets are my go-to for people when I have no idea what to get them. I like beverage and food items, too, because people can use them and then they’re gone – no clutter!

      So true that sometimes stocking stuffers turn into clutter. I always appreciate food and drinks for that reason too!

    These are great gift ideas! I never thought about baking spices or succulents before.
