5 Fun & Trendy Stocking Stuffers for the Holidays

Everyone loves wrapping boxes from under the Christmas tree, but what about the things we stick in the stockings? The Christmas gifts. Pulling down the stockings to hand out to your family can be a treasured part of the Christmas experience. As such, you want to be sure your stocking stuffers are fun, small, and affordable!

Stocking stuffers can be anything as small as a piece of candy to larger items you can bundle up. If the loved one you’re shopping for has a sophisticated taste, here are 5 ideas that won’t break the bank and will easily fit.

Phone Case

Some phone cases can be very expensive, that much is true. However, some of the best looking iPhone cases are completely affordable! It’s easier now more than ever to find a case that fits every personality. Some are simple, solid colors. Others have intricate designs and textures. There are also charging cases and wallet cases that won’t kill your budget! It’s a great idea for a trendy tech lover who loves to use their phone as an accessory.


Jewelry can be expensive, that’s true. You can still find some beautiful and/or funky jewelry, like necklaces and earrings, for reasonable prices. 

Look for those holiday sales at larger department stores or even jewelry shops. Accessories work for nearly anyone, as long as you find something you know appeals to their taste. Who doesn’t love accessories when they want to look good? And jewelry will easily slide into those stockings!

Hair Accessories

From headbands to bobby pins, anyone that loves to style their hair will appreciate these holiday gifts. Flower crowns, sparkly bands, and decorative barrettes are making big strides in fashion right now. 

For fun, you can even throw in a little tiara. Scrunchies are also making a massive comeback thanks to 80’s nostalgia, and you can find some fantastic multi-packs at great prices. 


Makeup can get pricey. Anyone who knows anything about makeup knows that. Still, you can find good quality cosmetics at low cost in most cosmetics stores like Ulta and Sephora. Brands like NYX and Make-Up Revolution have loyal followings and lower prices than luxury brands. 

Another thing you could do is palettes. This will be a more expensive option, but if you know it’s trendy and something they want, it could make their holiday amazing! Most palettes will fit into a stocking, too.

Tumbler/Travel Mug

You’d be hard-pressed to find a modern-day woman who doesn’t carry around a cute travel mug or tumbler for her coffee, water, shakes, smoothie, or juice. However, custom tumblers tend to stay under $30, and they’ll take up a lot of room in the stocking, so you won’t have as much to stuff! 

You can’t go wrong with a travel cup. You can find a ton of designs, and many have the choice to customize! Add initials, a fun quote, or a bonus gift card inside and you’ve got a wonderful Christmas gift.

Bottom Line

Whether it’s something they can wear or something they can carry, choosing how to fill up those decorative socks offers a lot of creative freedom. 

For trendy family members, you can get many different types of accessories or cosmetics. For others, a bag of candy or a collection of favorite snacks might be just as welcome. It all comes down to knowing your friends and family and how to fill their stocking with love rather than expensive gifts.  

Your holidays should be fun and full of love – keep this in mind as you prepare stockings stuffers!
