Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers (That Don’t Suck)

November 7, 2016

Growing up, my stockings were filled with socks, chocolates, trinkets, and basically anything that helped fill that sucker up. I am NOT complaining. I had a wonderful childhood and everything I could possibly want (and more). But as a mom myself now, I refuse to mindlessly put trinkets in my kid’s stockings when I know they are rarely going to be played with, end up in the trash, or better yet – end up in the abyss known as the toy chest. This year, our stocking stuffers will be smaller gifts that are meaningful and will get lots of use.

Here are my picks for stocking stuffers that your family will actually want:

Stocking Stuffers for Dads

Personalized Best Dad Ever Keychain

Mug Set

Wooden Phone Case

I especially love this Game of Thrones themed case, but they are so many options for every style/taste!

Shaving Collection

Personalized Money Clip

Stocking Stuffers for Moms

Personalized Bar Necklace

Bela Bracelets

I have been wearing these bracelets for such a long time! They are a modern twist on wearing a hair tie on your wrist. How many times have you forgotten a hair tie? Or looked at an adorable photo only to notice you had a hair tie on your wrist? These bracelets are GENIUS and perfect for on-the-go, stylish mama’s! Follow them on Instagram for more ways to wear these gorgeous bracelets!

Monogrammed Pouch

I love all things monogrammed!!

Mama Bangle

I love this classic bracelet and the fact that it boasts my role as a mother!

My personal favorite is “Uncorked”. It is the perfect fall/winter color! (And pictured below with the polish is my personalized ring from Her Silver Lining!)

Every boss mama needs their morning coffee in this mug!

I mean, do I really need to explain why every mom need this?

I love that these teethers can be personalized! We have the football one for Deuce and it makes for a beautiful keepsake, once he’s done using it for teething purposes.

Cat Socks

My daughters are obsessed with their fox socks, so I can’t wait to see how much they love these cat socks! And if you’re going to put socks in your kids stockings, at least make sure they’re the cutest socks you’ve ever seen.

Love that these paci clips can be used for toys, too! They are such a versatile and functional product!


We LOVE Z-Dough!!! It smells amazing and makes for hours of imagination and play.
