Good morning! I hope your Tuesday has started off on a great note. I’m in a hurry to get off to work, but I wanted to share the next installment of this year’s Holiday Gift Guides with you first.
This one is a collection of last minute (mostly smaller) ideas for a variety of loved ones in your home. Each item is one I could have added to the specific gift guide category, only it’s smaller, and most likely cheaper.

I’m obviously not a mother yet, but I did stumble upon some great ideas to include!
• animal & monster hand tattoos set
• Left Center Right (LCR) dice game
(I just played this for the first time last week! Kids would love it.)
• eco-kids all natural playing dough
• glitter crowns set for your favorite (pretend) princess and friends
(Um, the entire alex and alexa website is adorable!)
• currency you don’t see every day
Because even as an adult, I still think it’s cool to get my hands on a $2 bill or 50¢ piece every now and then!
Am I alone there?
I invite you to share some of your favorite stocking stuffer traditions and gift ideas in the comments section too. Happy Shopping!

Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries
Yes to all of these! Stocking stuffers are sometimes my favorite gifts! I think I may have to email this post to my husband to give him a little *hint hint* on stocking stuffer ideas. 😉
Email away, my friend. I do that all the time. I also (not-so) secretly hope Scott clicks on my gift guides for Her every now and then… just in case 😉
These are great ideas! I freaking love a stocking stuffer (or 12…) and while I’m not really responsible for stuffing anyone else’s stocking (that’s not intended to sound weird ha!) I love these picks for small gifts for friends!
Sometimes the best gifts are the smaller ones 😉
Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment
Great round up! I love the book where you can keep ticket stubs. Ours are in a basket right now. 🙂 Nice athletic gear included too!
I eventually stopped saving our stubs. Now I wish I had kept them!
Sara @ Lake Shore Runner
I have been looking for a slouchy hat and never can find one I like. I really like this one 🙂 I dont know if it is too late to add to my list…might just need to buy it myself.
Hehe, there’s no shame in that 😉
Ashley @ A Lady Goes West
I love stockings! My Mom still does stockings for my brother and my husband and me, and I look forward to the contents. Great ideas, I want them all!
Aw, that is so sweet! Enjoy the holidays with family!
Growing up my dad and I would always go to Rite Aid or CVS on Christmas Eve and buy a bunch of toothpaste, candy, bandaids, typical dad-stuff. Of course my mom had been stocking up year-round with all the good stuff!
I love that ticket stub book, by the way. I never know what to do with all our concert and sports tickets, but always feel like I should keep them as mementos. 🙂
Aw, that’s so funny to hear. Yeah, I was eyeing that one too! I would love that as a gift.
These are great suggestions. There are a lot of things I would really like to get or give. Thanks. http://www.eatallovertheworld.weebly.com
Christina @ The Beautiful Balance
Those animal and monster hand tattoos are adorable! Jus sent the link to my cousin for her kids!
Awesome! I know I really want to buy them… for a child of course… maybe 😉
I saw the TOMS for Target line, but didn’t know they had bracelets! I like the plain band with the writing imprinted!
Kinda side note, I totally found a rip-off of those fur pom beanies on eBay for like $4 lol.
I was at a mail station this summer and I handed in a twenty dollar bill or something, and the woman handed me back a 50 cent piece. I admired it so much in front of her – thanking me for it, that she asked if I wanted to have a dollar coin too! Lol. I kept them both up on my dresser. It’s rare to see that in the states especially! In Canada it’s basically all coins (up to $5).
I know, I just found them online the other day. Aren’t they adorable? Ahh, pom beanies are the best. I’m sure both Amazon and eBay are great for finding deals. Glad to hear I’m not the only one who appreciates rare coins 😉
Glitz Glam Gluten-Free
Ohh I want pretty much everything on the ladies list! I hadn’t seen the TOMS for Target line yet but I love those bracelets. I’m also on the hunt for a plaid infinity scarf too! So cute!
I’m totally a plaid junkie right now 😉
Great gift collections.Personalized gifts are also great idea because it’s unique like whatever designs you want with custom etching and engraving.
