I’ve put all these gifts onto one lovely little shopping list for you. You can find the download link at the end of this article. Print it off, head into town, and let the gift search commence!

Stocking Stuffers (list with ideas from the article).

Let’s get started with some tried and tested classics. I often get stocking fillers like these if I’m struggling a little, but I know they like nice things. These are thoughtful and pretty easy to find.

  1. Chocolate and Candy. Popular ones (and my personal favorites) are Ferrero Rocher.
  2. Specialty Teas. I generally like to DIY a stocking stuffer tea box using a variety of teas such as peppermint, lemon ginger, Earl Grey, Darjeeling, green mint, Ceylon, and hibiscus. If you want to buy a pre-made sampler box, there are great options online, such as this one on Amazon from Twinings or this one on Amazon from Tea Forte.
  3. Gourmet Coffee Samples. If your gift recipient has a Nespresso or other coffee pod machine, you can add a variety of coffee pods to their stocking. Otherwise, you can get them a variety pack of ground coffee or coffee beans (like this Coffee Variety Box sold by Atlas Coffee Club on Amazon).
  4. Hot Cocoa Mixes. For hot cocoa mixes, Ghirardelli is one of my favorites. You can buy a big box of hot cocoa envelopes and add a couple of them to each stocking.
  5. Homemade Baked Goods. This is such a great stocking stuffer idea if you like to bake. I often make brownies, macaroons, and various cookies and pack them up in paper bags or candy cookie bags (similar to these ones you can buy on Amazon).
  6. Chapstick or Lip Balm.
  7. Candles.
  8. Miniature Lotions.
  9. Gift Cards. Generally, everyone appreciates a gift card to their favorite store or coffee shop, and the gift cards are fantastic last-minute stocking stuffers you can pick up online or at the nearest CVS/Wallgreens/store.
  10. Tree Ornaments.
