See? The best gift ideas really do come in small packages.
Long before you hang the stockings by the chimney with care, you need to figure out how you're going to fill 'em. When it comes to stocking stuffers, every family has a different approach. Some families go the practical route. Some stick to the basics like Santa-shaped chocolates and candy canes. Others go all-out with personalized gifts for each family member (pets too!). No matter where your family falls, you'll find something on this list of stocking stuffer gift ideas. They're all small enough to fit in most standard stockings, so you can even save room for candy canes, marshmallows, and other holiday treats. But more importantly, we've taken your holiday budget into consideration, which means some of these ideas start as low as $5, so you can stuff everyone's stockings with as many tiny treasures as possible.
No matter who you're shopping for this holiday season, these small-but-mighty gift ideas will make everyone (even your family's designated Grinch) happy on Christmas morning. (And if you're still on the hunt for something specific, check out these stocking stuffer gifts for toddlers and men. They're the hardest ones to shop for, anyway.)
