Stocking Stuffer Ideas.

Though I think we’d all love a Bauble Stocking stuffed with a special “grand finale” gift (these earrings or a reservation at The Inn at Little Washington with childcare and travel somehow worked out…????), small but meaningful stocking stuffers in a traditionally-sized stocking (shared the ones we use here) are also a cherished tradition in my family. Mr. Magpie has given me some fantastic little goodies in there over the years, from my favorite pocket umbrella (more on that here) to my prized Caran D’Ache pen, and my mother excels at stocking my beauty cabinet each year with incredible new cosmetics and skincare finds. (That’s how I discovered my beloved Laura Mercier eye primer!)

Below, a few fantastic stocking stuffer ideas — everything under $25. This list foregrounds products I absolutely love or have been lusting after for awhile, and would also be a great jumping off point for gifts for colleagues/acquaintances.
