28 Cheap Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Her
Personally, I think one of the best things about Christmas is stockings! Growing up, my mom (a.k.a Santa) always went above and beyond filling our stockings with the most fun and useful little trinkets and items. I always wondered how she managed to find so many cute little items, whether it was a mini version of our favorite lip balms or a mini makeup brush set. There’s something so fun about putting together a stocking full of items for your favorite person.
The best place I’ve found to look for cheap stocking stuffer ideas is the travel sections at places like Sephora, Ulta, and even the drugstore – CVS has SERIOUSLY stepped up their travel + beauty section lately. Also, always take advantage of any sales on gift sets or value sets too. Target has a bunch of AMAZING gift sets right now. Click here to see Target’s AMAZING beauty gift set selection – it’s full of cheap stocking stuffer ideas.
It’s also an amazing gift idea – get a cute stocking from Target and fill it with a bunch of goodies for your best friend or sibling. I’ve put together some cheap stocking stuffer ideas for you so you don’t have to break the bank to fill up a stocking full of amazing items!
Oh BTW, have you checked out my holiday gift guides? I’m going to be adding to them throughout the month of December, so make sure you take a look at them if you’re looking for some gift ideas! Let me know if you have any specific gift guide requests! I love finding the perfect gift and I’d be happy to help you do the same for anyone on your list 🙂
