Cool Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Friday, October 30th, 2020

Sometimes the best part of holiday shopping is finding those little, unexpected treasures that will add extra delight to your gift giving. These can be the best, but also the hardest gifts to discover.  That’s why we’ve pulled together a list of our best stocking stuffers to make gifting alone or together with other S’well gifts super easy — and super special. 

But first, let’s talk about what makes for a good stocking gift.

What are Good Stocking Gifts?

Finding stocking gifts for kids or adults that are affordable and personal can be a challenge. From figuring out the right price point and how many stocking stuffers to give to how to make them personal are some of the most prominent questions we hear. So, what’s the answer? Well, of course, this depends on your budget, your holiday traditions and more. Here are a few tips to help you get started:  

  • The Right Price: In general, you will want to look for gifts ranging from $5.00 to $20.00 each. Staying within this budget will keep you from overspending on your stocking stuffers and help delineate between which gifts go into the stocking or under the tree.


  • Mix & Match: Within that price range, don’t be afraid to mix and match more affordable items with pricier ones. For example, if you purchase a stocking gift closer to the $20.00 mark, fill the rest of the stocking with only items under $5.00 or $10.00.


  • Create a Set: Another fun way to think about your stocking stuffers is to create a customized gift set with your items. In other words, think about what the recipient likes, needs, or wants and then have all your gifts center around that theme. For example, if your toddler nephew loves cars, you might gift him a toy car model, a set of Hot Wheels, a storybook about cars, and a car-centric activity book with all these items sold at different price points. Together, they will make an excellent stocking stuffer surprise!

What to Get Someone Who Loves the Environment
