The holiday season is just around the corner. This means one of two things: either you’ve done all of your shopping already, or you’re still running around trying to think of last-minute gift ideas.

If you haven’t “wrapped up” your holiday shopping yet, you should consider these great stocking stuffers. Not only are these gifts fun, but they are also affordable. This will make it easier for you to stick to your holiday budget.

1 – Slipper Socks

Do your friends and family members like to dress in warm, comfortable clothing? If so, you need to consider slipping a set of slipper socks into their stockings. These garments are perfect for lounging around the house on a cold, winter morning.

If you want to ensure that your friends and family members stay toasty throughout the winter months, you should buy them a pair of thermal slipper-style socks. These thermal socks are made out of top-of-the-line materials that have the ability to insulate more warm air than traditional socks.

These garments make great gifts for men, women, and children of all ages. However, if you’re buying these socks for children, it’s not a bad idea to find a pair of fuzzy slipper socks with grippers. These grippers will give the children more stability while walking or running on slippery surfaces (hardwood, tiles, etc.).

2 – Gift Cards

If you’re short on time, you should think about adding some gift cards into your loved ones’ stockings. Gift cards give the recipient the freedom to purchase something for themselves. This is a great option for people that are hard to buy for or acquaintances that you don’t know very well.

While you’re looking for gift cards, you should try to find ones that are applicable at multiple stores. This gives the recipient more options to choose from.

3 – Toiletries

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to pamper yourself every now and again. If you have friends or family members that need a pick-me-up, you have to get them some fun toiletries.

Some examples of these items include:

  • Makeup Pouch
  • Scented Soap
  • Scented Candle
  • Potpourri
  • Loofa

Not only will this brighten their day, but if you’re lucky, they might even share some of their items with you!

4 – Magazines

Although some people like to say that print media is dying, many people still enjoy reading magazines. Even though most publications are available online, there is something satisfying about having a physical magazine that you can carry around and flip through.

If you have a friend or family member that is an avid reader, you should consider getting them a subscription for their favorite magazine. This will give them something to read throughout the entire year.

5 – Candy

Who doesn’t love snacking on a piece of candy on Christmas day?

If you want to stick to tradition, you can go with festive treats like chocolate or candy canes. You can also go with something a little unorthodox like licorice, gummy bears or other chewy candies.
