Can you believe we’re less than 2 weeks out from Christmas? Yeah, me neither! If you’re doing some last-minute shopping, don’t worry, you’re not alone. I just finished up my shopping last night AND technically you still have into next week to shop online and be in the clear. For my final gift guide, I’m rounding up some easy stocking stuffers that will be sure to arrive before the big day! These aren’t your everyday gift cards. We’re thinking outside the box, people!

Above are a whole host of stocking stuffers, but I’m detailing my top 3 ideas below!
Some may think this is the equivalent to getting socks in your stocking, but I’m here to change your mind!
Mittens are both a practical and fashionable gift. They’re also an item that can easily get lost throughout the winter and need replacing. And, have you noticed that after the holidays, mittens (along with other cold-weather accessories) are super hard to find? Like almost impossible?! While growing up and in college, I always asked Santa for mittens. The more the better, and there’s nothing like that new fuzzy inside to start the winter off right.
Pompom beanies are very on trend right now and for a good reason. This is another item that is both practical and fashionable. With most coming in under $40, this stocking stuffer is really a no brainer. I’m personally loving this beanie by BP and this one from Northface. P.S. I STILL wear my Northface beanie I got in 2009. They do not disappoint!
Lip balm is a great stocking stuffer because it can be gender neutral. Getting a set like this one by Jack Black from Sephora would be perfect to split up amongst people. I personally love this lip balm and use it every day. And, it’s guy-approved – Kevin even likes to use it! This set comes in at $25 with 4 lip balms.
This set of 5 candles from Nordstrom would also be perfect to divide up amongst family members or to give out as separate gifts to girlfriends! With 5 candles for $40, this set is well-priced considering one candle from Bath and Body Works can be $24!
You should see people’s reactions when I show them this mug warmer. Fascination, disbelief, intense desire (maybe that’s just me), are just a few responses. Essentially, this mug warmer keeps your coffee warm. WHAT?! I KNOW! It’s under $10 (cue heart eyes 😍) and works with any coffee mug. I’ve tested this with a regular ceramic mug and a paper cup a la Starbucks. It’s perfect for your favorite coffee addict and is just small enough to fit into a stocking! I’ve already ordered one for my dad who habitually reheats his coffee!
