“Stocking Stuffers” For The Holiday Season

Stocking Stuffers For The Holiday Season

Jaden Raney, Messenger Reporter

Expressing the gift-giving spirit of the season with your friends is a tradition that leaves everyone full of joy. Whether you prefer giving or receiving, you’re sure to have a smile on your face, no matter what’s within the wrapping paper. However, if you’re at a loss for unique gift ideas (or maybe you’re more of a practical gift kind of person), then your friends and family will be much appreciative of these stocking stuffers.


  1. Picture frame with a photo inside- I too, have received this (and given it too!) quite a few times, and it is something that is simple yet sentimental, reminding you of how much that person means to you. Choose a frame that they would like, and put a memorable or silly photo inside. It costs very little, and the person can keep it for years to come!
  2. Coffee Mug- The classic favorite. This is a gift that everyone loves, and personalized mugs or mugs that are shaped as your favorite things are a gift that never get old!
  3. Fuzzy socks: Yeah, yeah, you’re probably sick of hearing this one, but it’s something that no one ever complains about getting, and something almost everyone wants to receive.
  4. Burt’s Bees Everyday Essential Beauty Kit-  With the changing weather and the cold temperatures, it’s easy to find yourself a victim of dry skin and chapped lips. This nifty kit is only $10 and contains an assortment of sweet-smelling chapsticks, lotions, and creams.
  5. Candles- With all of the Christmas-y scents wafting through the air, everyone wants to light a candle and bask in the Holiday feel! You can’t go wrong with snowflakes and cashmere or winter candy apple!
  6. Hot Chocolate Set + Blankets- Movie night, anyone? The person that receives this gift can share with loved ones or treat themselves to a night in! There’s no better combination than this.
  7. Board game + people to play with- This gift is two things wrapped into one. Whether you prefer cards or Monopoly, it’s great to have a game night with the people you love. Plus, it’s a good way to get off of your phone and focus on the ones around you!

No matter what gift you give or receive this season, remember that the true meaning of the holidays is spreading love and making memories! Don’t get too wrapped up in the gifts, and enjoy it while it’s here!
