Gift Guide 2015: Stocking Stuffers

I hope everyone that celebrates Thanksgiving had a lovely day yesterday. Today is what is known as Black Friday. So whether you are shopping online, in stores, or not shopping yet...I thought I would share a quick gift guide of some possible stocking stuffers! What I love about stocking stuffer type of gifts is that you don't always have to pay all that much. These are great for actual stockings, but you can also get these smaller items for colleagues, club members, neighbors, babysitters, etc.

Let me know if any of these items catch your eye (and hey! you can always buy something for yourself too. Tis the season and all, right?)

This Philosophy set is exclusive to Nordstrom, where you can buy it now for $20. It's the "Sending Holiday Wishes" Set and includes spiced gingerbread cookie shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath, sweet creamy frosting body lotion, and sugar sprinkles lip shine. This would make a cute little gift for someone. If you want to fit in in the stocking you might need to take everything out of the box. Not sure how big the box actually is - or if you have a giant stocking!

Know someone that is still obsessed with Frozen? How about these Frozen pencils (you get a set of four)? This set is $8 from the etsy shop Design Gem. She has a lot of other pencils too, in case you don't want Frozen quotes.

I just love this idea! It's Sriracha2Go in case you know someone that loves sriracha so much, they must have their own on hand! This is $5.99 and if you are in the U.S. and spend over $20, you get free shipping!

I just love this idea from The Dating Divas. You buy your husband or boyfriend a new wallet and then you print off these fun coupons and choose the ones you want to add to the wallet. "Good for one movie night", "good for one clothing item", etc. Choose what works for you and voila, a lovely gift!

This fun Tic Tac Toe travel game would be perfect for anyone that is traveling during the holidays, or gift it to a family with two kids. They could play with each other. SweetnSouthernCreati sells this on Etsy for $5!!

These Inspiration Dice are sold by Etsy Shop Inspiration Dice (easy to remember, eh?) You can buy a set for $12. Perfect for the writer in your family!

Know someone that deserves a bit of a break? How about gifting them Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup Mix from Etsy shop Nancy's Fancy Creation. This mix is $5.50!

Holiday Lucky Lottery Ticket Scratchers (in your choice of Winter Wonderland or Red and Green- you can also choose to add a magnet or not). These scratchers would go great paired with some fun scratch-off lottery tickets for that hard to buy for person. Who knows? Maybe they'll win some extra cash! These scratchers sell for $3.50 from the Etsy Shop Clay Creations by Nat Marie.

The coupons! What an incredible idea! I love those and hubby could do with a new wallet as well. Definitely checking those out as a big of a cheeky side present for him this Christmas. Knowing him, he'll try to use all the coupons within a few days :D Thanks for sharing Lauren, loved these! <3

Great post, Lauren! I love every single one of these items! I know my girls would go crazy for the Tic Tac Toe travel game, it's a bummer the store is no longer selling them though; perhaps I could improvise? I think I might be able to pull it off ;)

That Sriracha2Go is hilarious too! I know more than a few people who would appreciate this gift ha ha!
