GIFT GUIDE: What’s on my Christmas Wish List

Happy December friends! I hope your month is off to a festive start with the holidays in full swing now. For Will and I, it’s our first married Christmas together. To stick with tradition, we got our Christmas tree over the weekend. This week, we are slowly finishing up our home decorating. Admittedly, I am not that person who is ahead of the game during the holidays. I haven’t done much gift shopping, yet. I’m also getting lots of questions about what I want for Christmas. So, after brainstorming some gift ideas over the weekend, I figured I would share my Christmas wish list with you all. Let’s dive in!

25 Affordable Christmas Gifts & Stocking Stuffers – $25 or Less!

Hi friends! Can you believe how quickly Christmas is approaching? Personally, I CANNOT wait. Opening stockings on Christmas morning is a tradition I have always enjoyed. It is a fun way to kickoff the Christmas Day festivities together. Just as fun for me, is picking out the contents of the stockings. I love finding cute, little items that suit a family member’s personality or offer a practical purpose. Since Christmas is approaching fast, I am sharing 25 affordable Christmas gifts and stocking stuffer ideas. They are all $25 or less! I selected various practical and fun gifts that are sure to suit a wide range of personalities, too.

Affordable Christmas Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

    1. Rifle Paper Co. Mermaid Notebooks, $14 — These are so cute and fun, and there are several more fun designs by the Rifle Paper Co. Notebooks like this are perfect for those who are organized and those who try to be (like me)!
    2. Bath Bombs Gift Set, $17 — Bath bombs are a fun stocking stuffer for kids, teens, men and women. Seriously. Have you met someone who doesn’t like these?!
    3. Cable Knit Pom Pom Beanie$15 — This beanie is a super cute way to keep your head warm this winter.
    4. Eco-Friendly Loofah, 6 for $11 —  These are great for anyone, but especially for those who enjoy relaxing in the shower or tub.

    8. Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker, $24 — If you know someone who loves singing in the shower or listening to podcasts while cooking, this is a great gift.
    9. 2018 Animal Memes Calendar$6 — This is a great gift for your silliest friend or family member. Just think, it will have them smiling all next year!
    10. Himalayan Salt Body Scrub with Lychee Essential Oil $13 — This stuff normally sells for $32, so the $13 price tag makes it quite a steal. It is a perfect stocking stuffer for that person in your life who could use a little relaxation and pampering.

Establishing Christmas Traditions

On Christmas Day with my family, everyone takes a turn going through their stocking. Before any Christmas gifts are opened, we go one by one and item by item. As little kids, gifts from Santa were not wrapped, but were instead displayed with our stocking. Seeing everything from Santa displayed together was always super exciting.

Now, I know it may sound like torture to refrain from opening gifts. But, having that time together to go through our stockings is absolutely one of my favorite Christmas traditions. Similar to the affordable Christmas gifts I have shared with you, our stockings have a mix of candy, beauty products and small items that are just for us. Take a look at my stocking from last year, below.

Affordable Christmas and Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas

Since I am getting married next year, this Christmas will be the last time my family does the stockings all together. While we will have many future Christmases together, the dynamic will change. Will and I will pass along this tradition to our family. I think carrying on traditions like these can be a meaningful way to stay connected to those you love.

Now, I would love to know about your traditions and your favorite affordable Christmas gifts. Do you have a favorite tradition in your family or did you continue one from your childhood? What do you like to give and receive during the holidays?  Are there any go-to, affordable Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers that you love? Also, stay tuned for the story of my newest Christmas tradition.

Cheers & Happy Holidays!
